Follow these skin care tips for Radiant Skin.

1. WASH YOUR HANDS
Always wash your hands before touching your face. Those germs are the biggest cause of skin breakouts, so don't touch your face or apply anything to your face without washing them first.

2. MASSAGE YOUR FACE
Massaging your facial skin can help stimulate skin cells to release collagen, which helps restore elasticity and firmness that we lose with age.

3. EXFOLIATE!
Before showering in the morning, exfoliate your skin. Getting rid of dead skin cells helps your skin glow and will improve cirulation and reduce puffiness.

4. OPEN YOUR PORES
Moisturizers & serums...

Blueberries are one of our favourite berries. Being at the peak of our blueberry season here in BC we wanted to share some of their surprising esthetic benefits. 
 
The blueberry has one of the highest antioxidant capacities of any fruit, vegetable, or spice. Antioxidants help to neutralize free radicals within your system, which contribute to the natural degradation of your cells, which cause your skin and body to age. Blueberries can help to reduce both visible signs of aging like wrinkles and the nonvisible aging of organs within your body. In addition they contain vitamin A, which is commonly found in off the shelf acne...

Strawberry season has been the most recent berry harvest to come and go. Strawberries in addition to being a significant source of ellagic acid (see Berries Blog), are also great sources of magnesium, calcium and folates. However because strawberries have a notoriuously short shelf life they should be used within two days of purchase or they will begin to lose their nutrients. This is one of the many reasons we believe that buying local produce is so important.

The most beneficial effect strawberries have is on the skin They contain alpha hydroxyl acid which sloughs off dead skin and lets the healthy new skin underneath come through....

If you've visited out website or read our pamphlets, you know we are highly against using chemical products in skincare products. One of the chemicals we list to avoid is petroleum or propylene glycol.

Petroleum based beauty products strip the skin’s natural barrier, leaving the immune system vulnerable.

Propylene glycol used by the cosmetics industry is also used by the automotive industry in the manufacture of anti-freeze and automotive brake fluid. In 1992, the FDA proposed a ban on propylene glycol, however there is not a warning label on products such as stick deodorants, where the concentration is greater than in most...

Now we all know smoking is bad, but hopefully this will be the last time reading about it before you get the courage to quit. Or for those of you that don’t smoke, it will help you decide to never start in the first place. Cigarette smoke contains more than 4000 highly damaging toxins and chemicals, which are absorbed right into the blood stream and then spread out into your body and directly into your skin (your largest organ). >When inhaling on a cigarette, not only are the chemicals affecting your body, but they are also affecting the simple way in which your eyes squint and your mouth puckers which, overtime, will create deep...
