Beauty from inside out
It is said that beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. It is quite true. But there’s another kind of beauty that does not depend on how physically beautiful one is – it is the beauty of vitality. It is when you feel so good about life, you feel physically and mentally fit, agile, your skin glows and it is infectious and attractive.
Food is a big part that influences vitality. Not only is it incredibly satisfying for all our senses to eat a good, tasty meal, food also provides energy, raw materials for proteins and neurochemicals in the brain. Some of the ingredients in our products that are good for skin are
Moringa – Moringa is a rich source of Vitamins A, C, E and K. Vitamin A is absolutely key to anti-aging, healthy cell turnover and skin health. Vitamin E is essential for retaining moisture and protecting against free radical damage and Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant. Moringa is also one of the richest sources of plant protein. Its 25% protein includes all the essential amino acids. These are essential for connective tissues and to keep the skin smooth, elastic and strong.
Turmeric- Turmeric has been used both topically and orally in India since ancient times. Such is the importance of this spice that it’s considered sacred and is an important part of worship. It is used topically on the skin before weddings to make the skin glow and blemish free. It has anti-inflammatory properties, which can calm inflamed skin. It is also an antimicrobial and antioxidant which can benefit skin in multiple ways
Cacao- The cacao that we use is processed at lower temperatures. This ensures a higher percentage of flavanols. These are such interesting compounds with wide variety of effects. One of them is that it stimulates the production of nitric oxide in blood vessels, which relaxes them, lowers blood pressure and stimulates smooth blood flow that brings in oxygen, nutrients, and water leaving your skin hydrated and glowing. Cacao is also a very good antioxidant too. The blood pressure lowering effect enhances mood.
Pumpkin seeds- Pumpkin seeds are a good source of zinc and they are part of our moringa balls. Zinc is very good for skin and the body. It lowers inflammation, treats skin lesions, decreases acne and signs of aging. It acts as a sunscreen when applied topically.Incorporating these products in your skin care regimen and your diet will make a big long-term difference to your complexion and will do wonders to repair, rejuvenate and brighten your skin.
