In our hot, cold and everything in between summers in Canada we like to wear clothes that show off and accentuate the great skin colour we have achieved while in the sun on those hot days. If you’re like me, you also want your skin to look smooth and bump free, so it looks good paired with sleeveless shirts and shorts, not to mention swim wear. My go to skin care regime to achieve this look is a combination of exfoliation and application of a rich body cream to lock in the skin’s natural moisture leaving it feeling soft and smooth while maintaining the skin’s elasticity. In terms of our health, exfoliation is also a way to naturally detoxify the body and with our focus on all natural and organic ingredients, you can be assured that the overall wellness of you is central to our goals.
With that said, Glomalin® has two products that when used together, will accomplish the above, they are:
- Citrus Salt Scrub made from Himalayan Pink Sea salt, Organic Olive and Coconut Oils and Organic lemon zest and juice, used in the shower will leave your skin smooth and feeling soft and pliable after each use. The detoxifying combination of Himalayan salt with over 80 trace minerals, organic coconut oil and organic lemon juice and zest combined with the moisturizing properties of organic olive oil will leave you with the platform on which to seal in these properties; and
- Moisturizing Hand & Body Cream where we have combined Avocado oil, organic Jojoba, Grapeseed and Coconut oils along with organic Cocoa Butter to yield a rich and hydrating body cream that yields a soft smooth texture to your skin. And here’s a few things about these ingredients: Avocado oil is rich in fatty acids and is excellent for moisturizing the skin. In addition to vitamin E, avocado oil contains potassium, lecithin, and many other nutrients that can nourish and moisturize the skin; Jojoba oil has antibacterial properties. It acts as an anti-inflammatory agent, soothing the irritated skin. When used regularly, Jojoba oil has been known to control acne; Grapeseed oil is the oil that's extracted from grape seeds. - It's non-comedogenic which is just a fancy word for "it doesn't clog pores". - It is known to treat acne, tighten skin, moisturize, reduce scars, restore collagen and fight aging; The fatty acids in Coconut oil help it to work as an anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial agent all in one. This works in favor of reducing acne breakouts and keeping the pores dirt-free, while also alleviating red and dry skin and finally Cocoa Butter is high in antioxidants, which help fight off free-radical damage to the skin. Free radicals can cause skin aging, dark patches, and dull skin. Protecting your skin from free-radical damage is a must if you want to keep it healthy and youthful-looking.
