Organic Cosmetics News and Skincare Tips
Good cosmetics are not everything. To maintain a healthy and beautiful appearance, our body needs the right amount of movement. Sport has a beneficial impact not only on our figure but also on the appearance of the skin. This is because physical activity improves blood circulation (blood transports nutrients and oxygen). After training, skin cells are oxidized and nourished, and scientific research shows that regular exercises are the key to reversing skin aging process.
Spring workouts will certainly give a positive effect on the appearance of your skin. Therefore, in this part of the blog we offer you a great exercise app that we have already tested: Daily Workouts.

These exercises will make that the body will acquire a beautiful shape and the skin will recover firmness and elasticity. The exercises look innocent, but I promise you that within 20 minutes you will be sweaty ;)
After the winter skin is in bad shape. There is a lot of reasons for it: winter diet richer in fat and lower in vitamins, the time you spend mostly in the warmth of the house, air conditioning. It's no wonder that the skin is not oxygenated, devoid of firmness and seems older. To refresh the skin, I suggest the procedure in four steps.
Step one - cleansing.
Start by removing makeup from the eyes and mouth, and then the rest of your face, till to the chin and neck. Gentle stroke the skin and massage it. Remember to not rub and stretch. Best used cosmetic wipes wetted preparation to wash and change them until the last will be completely clean.
The recommended product: Double Phase Makeup Remover.
Step two - peeling.
Exfoliation of dead skin cells improves skin color for two reasons. First, we get rid of the dead layer of the epidermis, which usually has a grayish color. Secondly, massage when applying the product stimulates blood circulation in the skin and it becomes more beautiful color. Mechanical peels used for skin thicker: oily or mixed - the outer layer of the epidermis is removed, thanks to particles contained in the preparation.
The recommended product: Olive Oil Salt Scrub.
The enzymatic peeling is more appropriate to dry skin. Plant enzymes, included in its composition, dissolve dead skin without the need of friction.
The recommended product: Exfoliating Peeling Mask.
Step three - tonic or mask.
Tonic or mask is best used after peeling, because cleansed skin absorb more nutrients.
The recommended products: Aloe Vera Freshener, Relaxing Beauty Mask.
Step fourth - cream or serum.
After the winter choose products with vitamin C that brightens the skin, protects it from free radicals, strengthens blood vessels and stimulates collagen production. Excellent effects also give: vitamin A (revitalizes, smoothes the skin, lightens pigmentation), vitamin D (smoothes the skin surface, regulates the function of melanocytes).
The recommended products: Restorative Eye Cream, Eye and Neck Cream, Moisturizing Day Cream.
It is also worth to try intensely active serum with vitamin C and minerals. Preparations types serum often contain illuminating pigments, i.e. invisible to the naked eye the particles, which scatter the light, so the skin appears smoother and wrinkles - shallower.
The recommended products: Eye Lifting Serum, Face Serum.
This procedure is well to repeat in a week. I wish you beauty. ;)
Also calendar for 2017 years released by Pirelli is decorated in a similar style. It includes portraits of actresses nearly makeup-free. The author of photos, German photographer Peter Lindbergh titled the calendar “Emotional”.
I wanted to portray women not in terms of their perfection, but through their feelings and emotions. That’s why I called this edition of the Calendar Emotional: not some artificial perfection, but the real world and the emotions that well up behind the faces of these women - Lindbergh said. The calendar includes portraits of actresses Jessica Chastain, Penélope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, Rooney Mara, Helen Mirren, Julianne Moore, Lupita Nyong’o, Charlotte Rampling, Lea Seydoux, Uma Thurman, Alicia Vikander, Kate Winslet, Robin Wright and Zhang Ziyi. Lindbergh also photographed a Russian political theory professor, Anastasia Ignatova. Rather than putting make-up on women before a photo shoot, Lindbergh captures their natural beauty and doesn’t retouch the pics.
In a time when women are represented in the media and everywhere else, as ambassadors of perfection and youth, I thought it was important to remind everyone that there is a different beauty, more real and truthful and not manipulated by commercial or any other interests, a beauty which speaks about individuality, courage to be yourself and your own private sensibility - said Lindbergh.
Photographs from the calendar confirms the thesis that the makeup for women is a supplement, not a main element of her image, it is to emphasize the qualities of beauty, and not replace it. More important than how we think, that we should look, is that with what we feel good. So in 2017 be good for yourself.

For large hyperpigmentation you should consult with a dermatologist.
In cosmetic and dermatological are professional treatments, which eliminate skin discoloration, they are:
• Chemical peels - treatments consist of peeling skin with an acid, which reduces hyperpigmentation and stimulate the growth of healthy cells.
• Microdermabrasion – the procedure consist of create a controlled vacuum, in which (released with high speed) micro-crystals fall on the surface of the skin and removing the dead cells and debris.
• Cryotherapy - freezing of spots, melanocytes are sensitive to low temperatures and decompose at a temperature of -7C. After the procedure, you should protect your skin from the sun's rays.
• Laser treatment stain removal, which involves exposing the skin area an intense source of light yellow. Contained in the skin of melatonin selectively absorbs the light, which in turn causes heating of the cell containing the dye. In a further stage of the procedure, the cells are destroyed, and the discoloration within a few hours after the treatment become darker color. The next day begins the process of exfoliation of the outer layer of the skin, lasts about 2 weeks, and leads ultimately to the disappearance of discoloration.
Using the above treatments, you should remember about strict protection of the skin from sunlight. Experts recommend carrying out such operations when there is no strong sun, so if you plan this kind of treatment, winter is a good season.
The Vitamin of Youth
Vitamin A is one of the first open-vitamins, hence its designation as the first letter of the alphabet. Vitamin A belongs to the vitamins of youth, its stimulating effect reduces the changes that occur along with the aging process.
Our body produces vitamin A itself, but with age and exposure to UV radiation, this process weakens. In the result the outer layer of skin becomes thinner and its ability to store water decreases. Connective tissue fibers lose elasticity. The skin becomes dry, over time, the first wrinkles appear. Vitamin A used in cosmetics acts in various forms, such as Retinol, Retinoid, Retinal, retinol Esters or Beta-carotene. Retinol is vitamin A in its purest form.
Retinol primarily stimulates the growth of new cells. Due to this, wrinkles are fill from within, and they are less visible. It should be noted that this is a long process. The effect of the creams with retinol in its anti wrinkles action appear after several months of use, but the first changes, such as skin renewal and brightness can be seen in a few days.
This is another advantage of retinol, the lightening properties. Works on skin pigmentation appearing under the influence of the sun or hormones. Retinol speeds up the exfoliation of the skin, and affects the melanocytes, i.e. the cells that produce brown pigment of the skin. It causes a decrease in the size of melanocytes and a decrease in the number of melanin - the skin pigment that is produced in excess, leads to the formation of unwanted pigmentation.

Olive oil - Treasure of Mediterranean
Natural sources of vitamin A are: cod liver oil, liver and organ meat, sweet potatoes, carrots, cabbage, spinach, pumpkin. One of the sources of vitamin A used in natural cosmetics is olive oil. The olive tree is mainly cultivated in Mediterranean countries, especially in Spain, Italy and Greece. Extra Virgin Olive Oil is obtained from the pressed fruit of the olive tree without any further treatment other than mechanical filtration. Down through the centuries, the Greeks have used olive oil for its therapeutic and cosmetics properties. Olive oil is a natural source of vitamin A and E, which act against for aging skin and improve skin texture. Its high concentration of Retinol helps maintain the skin’s elasticity and helps fight dryness and acne. It nourishes the skin and helps its regeneration.
Retinol is present in all cosmetics of the brand Organix Cosmetix, which in their composition contain olive oil. These are creams, butters and masks. They carry the tag "with Retinol": full set of cosmetics with Retinol.
