Did you know that your skin is your body’s largest ORGAN?
Of course, all organs need the right nutrients to stay healthy.
In essence, this means your skin is hungry! It tries to “eat” whatever creams, serums, makeup, cosmetics, and beauty products you apply to it.
But there’s a catch…
The molecules of the products you put on your skin must be tiny. Tiny enough to penetrate your skin’s defensive barrier. This is a good thing — except when it’s not. Because unfortunately…
Some country regulations allow beauty care products to contain over 200 potential endocrine-disrupting chemicals. And these chemicals contain molecules small enough for your skin to eat. In plain language, endocrine disruptors mess with your hormones. NOT a situation any woman needs, especially as you grow older. What’s more, many skincare products contain penetration enhancers. They help chemicals infiltrate deeper into your skin, often sucking toxic substances right into your bloodstream.
The way your skin looks is a mirror of your body’s health, and it’s also a protector of it. It is actually one of the most crucial parts of your body’s immune system.
So, when you take proper care of it — including topically “feeding” your skin only the safest, healthiest ingredients — the most gratifying reward may be that you look your youngest, healthiest best.
Truly, though, the most important reward is that you are taking powerful steps to defend against – and possibly even help overcome – a wide range of health issues.
Feed your skin healthy, nourishing ingredients.
So what do you want to feed your skin? Good, healthy, nourishing (and organically grown) skin food. Here, at Adore Gaia team , we have curated what works for us and believe will do the same for you.
Below are our top 3 nature’s most powerful ingredients to support healthy, radiant skin and clean beauty, presented in countdown style to the big #1.
Everyone’s skin shares many similarities, but each person’s skin — and what each person would like to improve with their skin — is also unique. As such, certain ingredients may rank higher for you personally.
#3 - Aloe Vera Gel
Applying this vitamin- and enzyme-rich gel to your skin may help with exfoliation and provide powerful anti-inflammatory and soothing effects (it’s great for anti-aging and, as many already know, also great for helping to heal cuts and other skin wounds.) It can also potentially reduce the appearance of wrinkles and boost elasticity.
#2 - Amla (Indian Gooseberry Extract)
Amla is a medicinal plant traditionally used in Ayurvedic systems of medicine to restore lost vitality and vigor.
Ayurvedic texts have long considered Amla to be a Rasayana, which is a compound ideal for longevity and rejuvenation. And today, science is showing that this is precisely the case.
Amla (Indian gooseberry) is a very rich source of vitamin C, amino acids, minerals, and phenolic compounds – all reasons why it can be so beneficial to your skin. It stimulates pro-collagen (a precursor of collagen) and may protect your skin from sun damage, helping to prevent dark spots and wrinkles.
It’s also known for shrinking and unclogging your pores, leading to a fresher, smoother skin appearance.
#1- Carrot Seed Oil
Carrot seed oil is our winner when it comes to anti-aging effects. Combining skin-mending vitamin A, collagen-boosting vitamin C and moisturizing vitamin E, this essential oil helps smooth lines and repair sun damage, scars and any other skin trauma. Beyond facial care, it’s also used in products aimed at treating stretch marks and scar tissue.
Carrot root oil is excellent for balancing oil production and so is an effective anti-aging skincare ingredient in products addressing all skin types and used in natural hair products as a moisturizing and oil-regulating ingredient.
So there you have it. Our Top 3 nature’s most powerful ingredients to support healthy, radiant skin and clean beauty.
