Dewy Californian Skin / Marie Veronique Organics

Our skin has taken a beating the last few weeks - first it was hot, then it went Artic again, hot again - then the hideous Saharan dust hit, and the smog that followed polluted the air, and God knows what it did to our skin. Hence, your poor old skin is in serious need of some love and attention to counter-balance the damage, and prepare it for summer.

Go straight to Marie Veronique Organics to Cleanse Hydrate Replenish Protect Repair your skin. And Glow after.

Marie Veronique Organics may be based in California but they offer a genius REMOTE CONSULTATION by phone or email. Tell them your skin type/needs - Hells! You can even send them pictures of your wrinkles - and they will assist with tailored product recommendations for you. They’ll even tell you when and how to apply the products. Or, in our case, at certain times - didnt need any products at all. Refreshing.

We most definitely recommend doing this approach so that you can benefit from their expertise. But if you are just wishing to switch to a skin care range that is intelligent and effective here are some to consider…

OUR PICKS ARE:

01. Cleanse - Pacific Cleanser - remove the grit ‘n grim daily life leaves on your skin with this excellent cleanser, that supports your skins environmental protective barrier, rather than stripping like most other cleansers.

02. Hydrate - Pacific Mist - its the simple things in life and this is definitely one of them. Spraying this at the end of a day is instantly refreshing. Immediately feels like your doing wonders for you skin. If you’re after moist, dewy and plumper skin look no further. 'mazin magic mist -  Love it.

03.1 Replenish - Pacific Face Oil - Impossible to say enough good things about this face oil - smells of wellness - perfect consistency - and has the most enviably ingredients list. Ever. As we’ve said before MVOrganics have managed to 'bottle the secret to the famous Californian dewy skin'

03.2 Replenish -Pacific Lip Treatment- we all know and understand the effects of using petroleum based products, and how tricky it can be actually find lip treatments without them - well here’s one - and again with a impressive ingredients - Omega 3s & antioxidants to nourish skin and LipPlump a unique blend of peptides and super-humectants that enhance lip plumpness in two ways: by supporting collagen production and increasing epidermal water content.

04. Protect - Pacific Everyday Sheer Coverage SPF 20 - the safest sunscreen we have come across. Its stable, unlike others, which can generate free radicals that cause skin damage. If you pull out one thing - understand its key ingredient Non-nano zinc oxide protects against the full UV spectrum, UVA as well as UVB. It works by reflecting UV rays rather than absorbing them. 

05. Repair - Pacific Night Serum with Retinol - a dramatically impactful serum that increases collagen production, prevents moisture loss and stimulates new cell formation to repair damaged skin and even out skin tone. FYI: Retinol, a derivative of the nutritious Vitamin A, is one of the few proven anti-aging ingredients to effectively stimulate collagen and in turn improve your skin’s elasticity and even out skin tone.

Marie Veronique Organics is a treasure trove of skincare insights and knowledge. (A good place is start is with their guide to Face Oil ) We are delighted to have been invited to be an affiliate partner.

Beauty Detox

Since we started our Beauty Detox mission in January, we’ve been buying more and more skincare products in the FOOD aisle.

In fact whether digital or physical, we havent clicked/stepped inside a Boots or walked down the beauty aisle half as often as we used to. Its now for essentials like toilet roll not moisturiser.

One brand that sits as predominantly in our bathroom as the kitchen is FUSHI.  We are eating and wearing our way through their products. Favourites are the Extra Virgin Coconut Oil   Organic Flaxseed Oil  Organic Evening Primrose Oil  used for everything from salad dressings to mosituriser to hair conditioner. The Hydrating Lip Balm is the only exception to the eat/wear rule ;)

What you put on your skin should not be toxic. Start understanding more about whats in your cosmetics and the side effects to your health and well-being. Follow people like Hillary Peterson and Melanie Haiken and Janey Lee Grace

TheMiniPost Beauty Detox Mission: we are on mission by the end of 2014 to totally detox our skincare and beauty products.
