Luxury plant based body butter, features organic oils, Mango Butter and Rose Absolute. .
Aloe Vera: Various studies have been conducted to examine the benefits of the aloe vera plant and it was found out that aloe vera does in fact have several properties that are effective in treating a variety of skin conditions, from flaky or dry skin, cosmetic ailments, hair and scalp problems to many more.
Rose: There are many ways the flower is used in skincare with rose oil proving one of the most popular. Valued for its complex array of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, rose essential oil is great for quenching dry skin and also offers astringent properties to help battle acne, redness and inflammation.
Mango Butter: It’s rich in oleic acid, a mono-unsaturated omega-9 acid; and stearic acid, a saturated fatty acid. These are ingredients that the skin readily recognizes, takes up, and uses to help add moisture to the skin and tightens and firms.
Pomegranate: The regenerative properties of pomegranate oil make it an indispensable ingredient in many skin care products. It is included in most cosmetics formulas like soap, shower gels, massage oils, moisturizer and other skin care products.
Rosehip: Essential fatty acids help to regenerate skin cells and to repair damaged skin tissue. It is the essential fatty acids in rosehip oil that quench dry, sun damaged skin and help to improve the appearance of burns, scars, wrinkles and stretch marks.
Pumpkin: The natural nutrients in pumpkin seeks, particularly zinc and vitamin C, help firm and tighten. That same zinc along with natural selenium helps with oily skin, helping it to look healthy and clean. A rich source of vitamin E, which is a potent antioxidant, pumpkin seed oil protects skin from environmental stressors.
Your skin is constantly renewing itself. It sheds dead skin cells on a daily basis, creating a compete new layer of skin every 28 days.
However they don't always fall away, dead skin cells can remain 'stuck' to new skin, so it's important to buff them away with an exfoliant. A gentle Microfoliant can be used regularly or a stronger cream exfoliant can be used 2 -3 times per week. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#exfoliate#scrub#lekura#Lèkura#cosmeceutical#veganskincare#renew#bblogersau
Pretty Skin Serum + Boost — $16
I’ve been wanting to try rosehip oil for its hydrating benefits and am really liking this oil serum. I was worried it’d be too oily, but it absorbed pretty fast into my skin. I wake up with smoother, brighter and healthy looking skin. I use this as my last step in my nighttime routine. I also like that there’s no scent.
Clarifying Rose Toner — $12
Not as hydrating as I’d want my toner to be. It smells like rose with a hint of Korean sweet potato.
Microdermabrasion Gentle Paste — $13
I like this exfoliator because it doesn’t feel abrasive against my skin. I can add water to change the consistency so I think a little goes a long way. My husband @rrronson (he tried all these products too!) and I saw our faces were cleaner and brighter after washing our faces. We exfoliated 2-3 times a week and both of us have noticed our faces are brighter.
Brighten Dextox Jelly Mask — $14
I use this to exfoliate + mask at the same time. I like that it’s all natural and uses charcoal to exfoliate and clean pores and turmeric to brighten the skin.
Overall I love @clariseaskincare oil serum for hydration and improving skin texture and the microdermabrasion paste for exfoliating. It’s an all natural brand, vegan and cruelty free with an awesome price point. @clariseaskincare is available at CVS locations all over CA. Check out the CVS website to find a location nearest you and hurry; there’s a sale until the 28th! #gifted@joinpalm
This is my weakness. Thank you to the very knowledgeable Holistic nutritionist @suebird for educating us as part of #gettingbacktohealthyeatingwith2E
Most people think that coffee will be the hardest thing to eliminate during the 30 days, but for me, and I think most people it's actually the SUGAR. Our society has gradually gotten us completely addicted to this substance, and some say its as difficult to detox from as heroine! It will blow your MIND how much sugar is hidden in our processed foods!!! Even the things we don't consider as being "treats"! SO - instead of completely eliminating it (which actually is impossible to do - it's even in our fruits and veggies - AND we do need some sugar as an energy source) we are REDUCING it during the 30 day program. The goal during the 30 days is to keep it within 25-50 grams per day MAX. You will be getting small amounts of natural sugar in both the shakes (= to a small size apple), the chews, the bars and minimally in the fizz. There is SOME sugar in the veggies you'll eat, the fruit ( sticking to green apples and berries only) and of course our carbs do become a sugar source for us (which is part of why we keep them as a lower plate portion). HUGE TIP: If cutting sugar is a tough one for you like it was for me...WATCH "THAT SUGAR FILM" (yes, that is what it is called). It is now available on Netflix!!! I cannot recommend this film enough. It will make cutting out sugar that much easier for you. So give yourself a little task today and start calculating how much sugar you are REALLY getting. If you're unsure...google it. You'll be amazed where are sugars hide ;). there are TWO questions to ask whenever making a food/drink choice. Is it high in sugar? Is it Acid/Alkaline forming?#gratefulfortoday#keepinitcleanasican#glowingskinfromwithin#veganskincare

After age 25🙋🏻♀️ we will all begin to experience 3 aging factors
〰️ facial wrinkles, fine lines & uneven skin tone or discoloration
〰️ volume loss - transformation of the shape of our face
〰️ loss of density, thinning of the skin via depletion of our natural collagen. Causing deeper contours & wrinkles, a duller complexion & visible loss of radiance
For many of us, especially women🤷🏻♀️, this transformative process is not FUN to say the least🙈and modern day society doesn’t exactly celebrate or showcase physical aging in a positive fashion (pun intended😜)
Soooo it really is up to EACH of us to embrace✨🙏 the inevitable & BE mindful that good skin care can help a LOT but it cannot & does not stop✋the magical cycle of being human✨❤️
FOCUS on your Spirit, it will forever be AGELESS💫🙌

💡 SeneTip of the Week: Treating the Eye Area! 💡
All about EYES 👀
The area around the eye is HIGHLY sensitive and requires extra care. Edema, lack of sleep, aging, and other circumstances are common causes of puffiness, sagging, and discoloration🙄😴 Keep your eyes looking youthful and beautiful with the right skin care products! 👵🏼👉🏼👱🏻♀️ 🔆After cleansing with 3 in 1 Cleanser, apply Dark Circle Under Eye Treatment to the area under the eyes. Made with a powerful blend of botanicals, this treatment 👉🏼 helps reduce swelling and under eye darkening👈🏼 .
🔆Once you have allowed the product to be fully absorbed into the skin, apply Anti-Wrinkle Treatment to outer corners of the eye area and other areas that are prone to wrinkling. Antioxidants, jojoba seed oil, and our proprietary anti-wrinkle complex 👉🏼work to improve firmness smoothness, elasticity and protect skin, reducing light to medium wrinkle depth by an average of 34% to 63%.👈🏼🤯 .
🔆After applying the rest of your skin care, apply EyeLuminator (during your morning routine) or Eye Crème (during your evening routine) to the eye area. Kukui seed oil 👉🏼provides lightweight moisture and leaves skin feeling smooth while vitamin A helps to increase elasticity.👈🏼 .
All SeneDerm SkinCare products include ⛲️SenePlex® Complex ⛲️ (we like to call it the fountain of youth!) allowing you to layer anti-aging benefits along with each targeted ingredient. Incorporate these steps into your morning and evening skin care routine for incredible results!
☀️If you don’t give a flying, while you’re lying there frying, at least spare the kids, from the crap in the fridge☀️😂😎 Anyone who knows me knows that I keep banging on about sunscreen and the toxic chemicals that are in nearly all of our commonly known brands, so if you’ve heard this before ignore me .😴 🙈🙉 .
I was so shocked to learn how toxic one particular chemical is (oxybenzone/benzones), just how bad it is for your body; and how it is heavily linked to certain endocrine disorders. In fact it is a known hormone disrupter. (As if we women need anything else to worry about in that respect 🙈🙄) ✨Anyway, It’s in nearly all suncreams we use. In fact, in the chemist’s last week I checked them all on the rack (from expensive to inexpensive) while queuing, and not one was benzone free. Tropic Suncreams are a completely chemical free and a mineral based option, (clearly that’s where I was going with this 😂) but honestly, it’s a fact. Don’t be slapping on the chemical crap, your body won’t thank you for it. You mightn’t get burnt but theres damage being done on the inside. And as I said, if you don’t give a flying, while you’re lying there frying, at least spare the kids, from the crap in the fridge. 😂 They deserve to be protected. It’s not a luxury, it’s a responsibility. You do have other options. 🌱👣☀️👶🏻 Oh p.s, check out how Hawaii has banned sunscreens containing this chemical as it’s killing the coral reefs and endangering marine life. Can’t even get past customs with it. ❤️🐠🐟🐬🐳 ❤️. .

Facial mask, whether homemade or store-brought is something we must include in our skincare regimen.
The Koreans, men & women, CEO or simple worker swear by this key component to make sure they always look and feel their best.
If your skin needs an extra boost apply it after cleansing your face. In Korea the most popular facial mask is Mask Sheet or Mask Pack to be used at least once a week. Some Korean celebrities use it every single day because it's has become their skin care game-changer😉.
Depending on the ingredients it can help: fight acne, fade acne scars, tighten your skin(anti-aging), maintain moisture, fight hyperpigmentation, as a natural hydration, achieve a smooth complexion.
Don't be affraid to try different masks until you find the one that works best with your skin.
Your beauty is your wealth😀. .
