Pamper sensitive skin

I have sensitive skin. Even though I love hot weather, it can make my skin feel prickly at times. Organix-South Naked Organix, a new line of unscented organic soaps and body butter, is a luxurious solution. This all-organic skin care line is perfect for anyone who reacts badly to fragrance or additives, but still craves luxury.

 
There are four delicious soap and body butter combos to pamper skin:
 
Sea Buckthorn oil is now used in variety of beauty lines. Sea Buckthorn – the fruit of the shrub of the same name — was recently praised by Dr. Oz for its many health benefits. It is rich in essential fatty acids, especially the elusive Omega 7.
 
Argan is the golden beauty oil of Morocco. It is a rich source of essential fatty acids and Vitamin E. Argan oil has a miraculous rejuvenating effect on hair and skin.
 
Neem is often called the “Village Pharmacy” by traditional Indian Ayurvedic practitioners. Neem oil is prized for its high antioxidant content. It is soothing and healing for a variety of common skin conditions. It is also very moisturizing.
 
Tamanu oil from Polynesia contains Callophylsäure acid, which is
anti-inflammatory and very beneficial for skin conditions such as for acne, eczema, as well as psoriasis.
 
I tried the Tamanu oil soap and body butter combo. I found it very soothing to my skin, even a small patch that was irritated by the heat. I love the way the body butter melts into my skin and leaves it feeling so soft.  You need only a very small amount to leave skin feeling like silk.
 
According to cosmetic chemist Autumn Blum founder of Organix-South, “Naked Organix offers double support for the skin. The soaps are super-fatted and gently cleanse the dermis without stripping important oils. Follow that with massaging or rubbing a body butter into your skin after bathing which not only increases circulation, but leaves the skin feeling softer, more supple and radiantly alive.  Try Naked Organix & feel better naked.”

The ‘beauty berry’

Have you heard the buzz about the latest “beauty berry,” the fruit of the sea buckthorn shrub?  TV’s Dr. Oz was blown away by its benefits and ballyhooed it on a recent show. He cited a study using mice that promised amazing weight control benefits. Sea buckthorn berries are rich in nutrients such as vitamins and especially Omega 3, 6, and 9, as well as the essential fatty acid, Omega-7 that is essential for collagen production.

 
Topically, sea buckthorn berries have been shown to help reverse sun damage, fine lines, and even help skin build collagen. There are studies that show that sea buckthorn oil helps to reduce inflammation and promotes healing.
 
Recently I tried the Sibu organic line of skin care. It is lovely to use, and leaves skin feeling soft and moist. There are three basic products that can be purchased for $89 from the Sibu site. Balancing Facial Cleanseris a gentle cleaner that doesn’t strip skin. The Hydrating Serum has a light texture and is infused with vitamins and is high in antioxidants. According to Sibu this serum fortifies the skin against the aging process and repairs damage at a cellular level. I like that it is absorbed quickly. This is my favorite in the line. According to Sibu, the Replenishing Night Creamis designed to stimulate your skin cell’s renewal cycle. The cream will help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while helping to noticeably reduce visible sun damage.
 
Sibu also sells a line of high-quality nutritional supplements which we have not tried, but would theoretically increase the effectiveness of the topical products. 
 
Sibu skin care would be a good choice for young women wanting to maintain a beautiful complexion, or those noticing the first signs of aging. www.sibu.com
