I believe that the best way to learn how to take care of something is to understand it.
Here are a few facts that may help with understanding how to care for your skin.
Genetics and health.
There is no question that our genetics and health play the biggest roles in the look and health of our skin.
Eating a clean healthy diet and exercise can make a huge difference in the efficiency of your skin’s ability to regenerate and look its best.
Here are a few simple things I’ve learned about how skin functions that may help you treat your skin with informed love and care.
What we put on the outside—gets into the inside.
Our skin is the largest organ on our body. The body absorbs everything we put on our skin.
This is why the “patches” work for seasickness, nicotine, painkillers, birth control and more.
Any chemical you place on the outside of your body goes into your internal systems.
It’s the same thing with cosmetics and skin care products. So ideally, it’s best to use all-natural, pure, toxin free products that are good for your internal body as well as your skin.
Your skin is a self-sustaining system.
Our body is designed to create its own moisturizer.
You may have noticed when you wake up in the morning, your skin feels soft and moisturized. Some people find this oil over their T-zone. During sleep your body produces a protective mantle over your skin. It is your skin’s natural moisturizer, customized for you!
And yet, most of us wash it off when we get out of bed in the morning.
So if you routinely wash your face in the morning, it is important to replenish this natural protection with a moisturizer.
Effective ingredients we find in nature.
These are many of the reasons why I created Boomsilk, Boomstick Glo and Boom Cotton—which include all-natural ingredients like raw natural honey, propolis and royal jelly.
Honey is a natural collagen stimulator that attracts and retains skin’s moisture. It’s also a natural preservative. That’s what makes it such an effective moisturizer for the most sensitive skin.
Propolis—which also comes from beehives—is a natural sealant that can help skin maintain its moisture. It also contains skin-loving vitamins like Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B12, Calcium, Iron, Zinc, among others.
Royal Jelly is another fascinating substance from beehives. It’s the food for queen bees. For us, this bee produced ingredient contains specific antioxidants and nutrients for your skin such as flavonoids, nucleic acid, decanoic acid, and enzymes.
We only use the most essential effective ingredients to protect and moisturize the skin, leaving out all perfumes, parabens, phthalates, emulsifies and binders.
We use all-natural ingredients that are complementary to our bodies.
