Two Herbal ‘Teas’ to Help Boost Your Immune System

We all know that sitting back with a nice, hot cup of tea can be good for the soul. But made with the right ingredients, your ‘cuppa’ can also look after your health, providing an incredible array of benefits that will help protect your immune system and your general health.

10 Ways to Help Make Your Home an Immunity Hub

Let’s deal with the bad news first.  Unless we fancy moving our home to a cave on the top of a high and distant mountain, we can’t avoid exposure to toxic substances that threaten our immune systems.  Quite simply, they’re part of the fabric of our lives, not only in our food and drink, but in the very air that we breathe.

5 ways our products help you do good

At The Organic Skin Co., we believe that true beauty is about more than the way you look and feel (although these things are important, of course they are!), it’s also about the way you interact with the world around you. It’s our aim to play a part in this; to offer you products which help you in your desire to do good: not only by yourself, but by the people around you, by the creatures who share our world, and by the planet too.

What Is – and Isn’t – in Our Products

(and why that’s good news for your skin)

Let’s cut to the chase. At a time when our personal wellbeing has never been more important, the chemicals found in many cosmetics are simply no good for our skin and our general health.

Did you know that nearly 11,000 different chemicals can be found in our personal care and beauty products, and only 11% of them have ever been evaluated for safety by independent bodies?1

How To Apply Our Cream Eyeshadow

Our cream eyeshadow is highly pigmented and filled with moisturizing and revitalizing organic ingredients to care for the delicate skin around your eyes. It can wear differently on some skin types when compared with more conventional (non-organic) eyeshadows however…

Organic Aloe Vera

Ingredient #1: Organic Aloe Vera

When it comes to caring for our skin, organic Aloe Vera is the bomb! That’s why it’s a hero ingredient in so many of our products. To find out what it can do for your skin, click on the link here.

5 Reasons We Love Amaranth

If we asked you to name the top 10 natural ingredients that are good for your skin, it’s a safe bet most of you wouldn’t have the ancient grain, amaranth, on your list. But that’s not because it doesn’t deserve to be there, it’s more the fact you won’t have heard of it, given most skincare companies don’t include it in their products, thanks to its exotic origins and its expense.

Ohhhh… So that’s why it’s good for me!

5 Reasons We Love Organic Castor Oil

Organic castor oil has been making some noise in beauty circles recently, and with good reason. Whilst its many medicinal and beauty properties have been known for thousands of years (the ancient Egyptians couldn’t get enough of it), in recent times it’s been used mainly as a laxative. And very effective it is at that too, but as much as we love our products, and as much as they are potent multi-taskers, we can’t help but think that ascribing them with laxative properties may be a step too far…

The Art of Eye Maintenance

Part 1: Exercise

Unless we’re having a really bad spelling day, there’s no ‘i’ in beauty. But there’s certainly a lot of beauty in the eye. Studies show that our eyes are the first thing someone looks at when measuring how attractive we are, whether they can trust us, or want us as a mate.

Breathing

The Art of Breathing

Part 1: When It Comes to Breathing, We Suck

Breathing. It’s one of the few things that all of us who are interested in the business of living must do. And we do it a lot.
16 breaths per minute, on average. That 960 breaths an hour, 23,040 a day, 8,409,600 a year and 672,768,000 breaths over the course of an average lifetime.
You’d think, with all that practice, that we’d be good at it. But we’re not. When it comes to breathing, most of us are hopeless and it’s making us sick.
