Halt the Clock and Reverse Aging?

There is so much emphasis on what we put into our body, particularly when we talk about weight management and health. 

Healthy food now is synonymous with organic health food, free of preservatives, colourings, additives and pesticide-free. 

But what about our beauty?

Personally I feel that if we are taking care of our nutrition for our weight and health, we must accord the same love to our beauty too. 

Hence, ORGANIC for the skin!

We are what we eat. How nutritious your diet is - determines your health.  

What about what our skin eats? 

Do you know that more Than 60% Of What We Put On Our Skin Is Absorbed Into Our Body.

Hence, synthetic chemicals in many skincare preparations soak into the skin. As the body cannot recognise and process these 'foreign' substances, these  accumulate in your body with the potential over time to cause an allergic skin reaction (such as contact dermatitis or eczema) and / or disrupt other systems in the body. 

I only just very recently (in January 2018) incorporated ORGANIC skincare from Celebrity Beaute into my beauty routine.

If you have read my earlier blogs on skin, i did mention about my chin suffering from breakouts from my last trip to Bend, Oregon in 2017. Diagnosis was due to dryness and then the oil got trapped. The sebum became pimply. 

After doctor's diagnosis, i bought fragrance-free, sensitive-friendly skincare products. The flare ups became less redder but it did not disappear. 

Only this year in January 2018, when Stephanie of Celebrity Beaute introduced me to Organic Alpine Arise skincare imported from Switzerland, did the improvements happen. At that point, i was not convinced that it would make any difference, as I was already on sensitive skin products. How much more of a difference can organic skincare be to my skin? 

To my surprise, barely a month into using Organic Alpine Arise skincare and my skin became smoother,  blemishes became clearer and most importantly, the pimply looking flare ups starts diminishing.

But then, i had to go to Bend Oregon again in  late February 2018. I am extremely worried that the harshness of weather there (-2 degrees with snow - its really harsh cold!), will trigger the same problem again. 

-2 degrees of cold and snow in Bend, Oregon

I packed all my Organic Alpine Arise skincare products into my bag and i dilligently follow the skincare routine. 

I know that my return trip to Bend Oregonthis time, will put my skin to the test with these organic products. 

To my pleasant surprise, my face and skin remains good. No breakouts! Not only that, it maintains the moisture and still feels baby soft upon my return. 
Happy face

I am over-the-moon delighted! 

These are the Arise Organic Swiss Skincare that I am currently using: 

Choosing certified organic body care is as important in decreasing the toxic load on the body. Plants grown organically yield the purest oils and extracts, free from pesticide and herbicide contaminants. It also yields a higher level of antioxidant vitamins than non organic. 
Ensure that your organic skincare is certified.
Look for BIO cert and ECO cert.

For example, Organic Alpine Arise Skincare imported from Switzerland are:

artificial colourings-free
Cruelty-free, no animal testing

Natural and organic ingredients are certified by
(ECOCERT Greenlife according to ECOCERT

All products are also associated with COSMEBIO

With organic products, you support the sustainability of our environment.  Organic farming is good for wildlife as it causes lower pollution from sprays. Ozone-friendlier it produces less carbon dioxide and less dangerous wastes.

Skincare product allergy test: 
How do you test if your skin will develop reactions to any skincare product? Apply it for the next 3 days on the back of the wrist or at your neck. Observe if any reactions or rashes develop. 

Love your health and beauty equally!

Yours always in health, beauty and happiness

Real reasons why you must STRETCH?  When you stretch, your muscle lengthens. Muscle lengthening provides greater range of motion ( ROM), which is important to  individuals who have decreased ROM due to injury, a sedentary lifestyle or aging. Increased flexibility will also decrease our chances of injury and helps to enhance sports performance. A well-stretched muscle helps you in the process of recovery after exercise, ridding you of excessive muscle soreness. It also decreases your risk of injury as your muscle and surrounding areas of the muscles become supple and flexible.  Perform Full Body 12 stretches at least 2 times per day, breathing gently throughout.  Do not hold your breath while stretching.  The 12 Stretches is part of the scientific research  by Dr Dee Dee, as covered in this media coverage MORE Benefits of Stretching   - increases  flexibility ,  - for rehabilitation , - increases circulation - blood flow to the muscle increases after a lon
