Pumpkin spice and everything nice, especially when it comes to your skin.
Fall is in the air, and we wanted to talk about some of the "fall ingredients" that show up in your pie and your skin care. With the weather getting colder and drier, we are in desperate need of hydration, nourishment and ingredients that are natural and good for our skin.
Pumpkin might be the best known fall ingredient and is a staple in our kitchen. We also know that pumpkin is great for your skin. We have our pumpkin patch soap that uses real pumpkin puree to soothe, nourish and protect dry damaged skin. Pumpkin isn't just for your lattes.
Pomegranate is another fall staple, with the little red seeds showing up in desserts, cocktails and decoration. But pomegranate oil is really high in antioxidants and protects your skin from free radicals (the nasty stuff in the air). It's no wonder that we use this stuff in our award-winning day cream and our restorative face serum.
Oats aren't just for topping crumbles and making cookies anymore. You might be devouring oatmeal raisin cookies this fall, but have you thought of oats for your skin? Oat oil is super nourishing and anti-inflammatory. Oats have been used for centuries to soothe aggravated skin. This little grain is packed with antioxidants, Vitamin E and B, amino acids and calcium- all nourishing agents for your body’s largest organ. This is why it is great in our daily oat lotion.
Cinnamon might be the flavour of fall, so why not have it in your soap? Cinnamon essential oil has astringent properties that help remove excess oils and clear congested skin, while offering a spicy and uplifting aromatherapy experience. No wonder we love cinnamon.
Rosehip is another fall staple, since they are best harvested and eaten after the first frost. It really doesn't get any more fall than that. The berry part of the rosehip can be used in jams, jellies and pies. But rosehip oil is actually a superhero, especially for the face. Not only is it used to lighten age spots and treat hyper-pigmentation, nourishing Rosehip will calm overactive skin and promote the growth of healthy new skin cells. This is why we love it in our skin care.
