SUNSCREEN FOR THE WINTER… HUH?

We all know the importance of sunscreen in the summer but not all realize it’s extremely important in the winter months too. I didn’t until I started investigating for this blog. 

Did you know?

  • Snow and ice actually intensify and reflect up to 90% of UV rays.
  • UV rays and sun damage can cause skin cancer.
  • UV rays are responsible for those nasty wrinkles we don’t want, the number is a staggering 90%.
  • Even if it’s a cloudy day the sun still comes through.
  • Winter sport enthusiasts are at a higher risk, so sunscreen is a must! 
  • Skiers and snowboarders’ risk of UV damage is increased by 4-5% for every 1000 feet they are above sea level.
  • The ozone layer is our UV protector, but is at its thinnest during winter months.
  • The blustery wind, cold temps, dryness, windburn and yes sunburn all combine to make your skin more susceptible to damage and premature wrinkling.
  • 30 SPF is the recommended number for best coverage applied every 3-4 hours.

BE NATURAL ORGANICS sunscreen is 100% chemical and nano FREE. Our sunscreen is used to fight sun damage, is a foundation and a moisturizer, what more could you ask for? It is the recommended 30 SPF, comes in tan, nude, and no tint and 3 sizes that are perfect to always have on hand. So, this winter bundle up, put on a smile and wear that sunscreen!

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, THE BORAGE PLANT

Borage oil is derived from the seeds of the Borage plant also known as Borago Officinalis or Starflower, its color and shape are beautiful, but the rest looks like the torturous man-eating plant from the Little Shop of Horrors movie. That visual aside, what this little plant can do for your skincare regimen is amazing and is found in BE NATURAL ORGANICS SHIMMER OIL

The best active found in Borage oil is the GLA. It has the highest content of GLA (gamma linolenic acid) found, even more than evening primrose oil which packs quite a punch of GLA itself. I know our customers are very well versed in organic ingredients; however, for the newbies let me tell you about a lovely GLA also known as King’s cure-all. This acid is an omega 6 fatty polyunsaturated acid that is excellent for problematic, dry skin and is extremely soothing for all skin types, believe me you want this in your skincare products! Shimmer also contains raspberry seed oil from Poland that contains collagen and ravages free radicals and macadamia nut oil from Australia with its Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids is age defying. Believe me when I say BNO searches the globe for the most pure and potent ingredients for our products.

Whether your looking for a pure light serum or something richer, we have you covered.

Best of all, they are
both EWG Verified

Our Squalane Serum consists of one incredible ingredient – Olives! Our Squalane Serum is an extremely potent antioxidant; combating free-radicals and the damage they cause to the skin. This makes it particularly nice for those who spend a lot of time in the sun or are dealing with sun damage.

Our Squalane Light Serum is 100% derived from the sugar cane plant which is much lighter oil than our original olive derived Squalane Serum. Squalane made with sugar cane is odorless and prevents moisture loss so that your skin will retain its current flexibility giving a more luminous appearance.

THE HISTORY OF CYBER MONDAY

Thank you, Ellen Davis, senior vice president of research and strategic initiatives of the National Retail Federation (NRF) for inventing and marketing Cyber Monday.

Her research showed that when people went back to work the Monday after Thanksgiving, they were shopping online using their work computers for the faster internet speeds and their children had no way to see what they were getting on the home computer, who would have thought? 

The NRF sent out a press release days before turkey day in 2005, using the new term “Cyber Monday”, online retailers were thrilled to see a 77% jump in sales! 

Insane fact- Cyber Monday 2019 during peak hours spending was 12 million per MINUTE!

BE NATURAL ORGANICS is thankful for last year’s biggest Cyber Monday sale ever. This year we are committed to making it even bigger and better with incredible deals.

BE GRATEFUL JUST FOR THE HEALTH OF IT!

I get it, 2020 has been a really hard year to find things to be grateful for, COVID-19, a divided country, high unemployment…

When you think of the times in the past where you’ve been grateful for your health, the love of your life, bills that were paid and food on the table, you felt a spark of gratitude. 

At other times life can bring you down so low that you feel you have absolutely nothing to give thanks for. For your own well being, find something to be grateful for. 

Did you know… 

Happy thoughts negate unhappy thoughts. Research has “positively” shown happy, positive emotions are exceptionally good for our body, brain, and spirit.

Sounds like an easy thing to do right? Not always, it takes training, emotional strength and persistence. There are ways you can train yourself, just use your smarts and senses to learn how.

  • Schedule a gratitude reminder on your phone to come up in the morning and evening, take a second to start your day with positivity and before bed reflect on something good from the day, you well sleep better.
  • Be present! Stop your multi-tasking mind, look at the sun, smell the fresh rain, smile at the person next to you.
  • Say Thank you more often- it spreads gratitude!
  • Start a gratitude journal- on your phone or a paper journal, write at least 3 things a day, soon your mind will just do it automatically.
  • 21-day gratitude challenge- No judgment, gossip or criticizing for 21 days! 
  • Exchange self-pity for gratitude and move forward towards a happier life.

KNOCK OUT AGING WITH JUST ONE FINGER AND A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP

You don’t need a set of boxing gloves for this fight; just your fingertip and BNO’S Eye Repair Night Serum to knock out signs of aging around your eyes.

You’ve heard the old expression “a little dab will do ya” well, it’s a good saying to remember while using eye serums. Why, you may ask? Serums are highly concentrated; therefore, you don’t need to apply a lot which saves time and money: it’s a win-win.

You only need to apply a small dot, on your fingertip to pat gently around the eyes.

Our Eye Repair Night Serum is a superior product because we formulate it with 5 highly effective certified botanical seed oils, which provide intensive antioxidants, vitamins, and nutrients to the fragile skin around eyes.

  • Evening Primrose Oil has the highest concentration of GLA, which drench your skin with lovey nutrients.
  • Jojoba, a fatty acid, which profile is a perfect match to our own, therefore our skin easily recognizes the ingredient and loves to soak it up.
  • Rosehip Seed, cold pressed, which is excellent as we lose none of the bio-active properties to heat. Our eyes therefore fully benefit from its vitamins and fatty acids.
  • Moringa Oil loves to soak up its own vitamins and deposit into your skin to give it a healthier appearance, smooth wrinkles, and its unique plant hormones aid in normal skin cell regeneration.
  • Sea Buck Oil is a special oil bursting with antioxidants, vitamins and fatty acids including the rare omega 7.

Purchase today and “do the dab” tonight and every night for more youthful looking eyes.

DAY, NIGHT, DO WE REALLY NEED TWO TYPES OF MOISTURIZERS?

And the answer is, drum-roll please…… Yes, we definitely do!

Moisturizers used during the day tend to be lighter weight to avoid a greasy feeling and shine when applying makeup.

It’s important to protect the skin with antioxidants during the day to counteract the damaging UV rays of the sun, and to that end we’ve packed DAY LIGHT ORGANIC MOISTURIZER with Vitamin C ester. Vitamin C Ester is a natural SPF defense against the sun and the havoc it wreaks on your skin.

Of course, your face also loves all the additional yummy organic ingredients we formulated into Day Light Moisturizer including:

Aloe Vera Leaf Juice – Contains potent amounts of phytonutrients, antioxidants and amino acids to intensify natural regeneration benefits.

Avocado OilEmollient that contains more than 20% of essential unsaturated omega 3 fatty acids, vitamins A, B, C and E, potassium, lecithin and lutein.

Rosehip Seed Oil –  Contains high concentrations of GLA. It’s cold-pressed, no heat is used to avoid destroying any of the bio-active properties and benefits which includes high levels of vitamins A, C. and Omegas 3 and 6. This non-pore-clogging oil promotes beautiful skin.

Rooibos Tea Extract has a naturally high concentration of antioxidants, flavonoids, vitamin D and zinc. Contains amazingly effective antioxidants and age defying properties.

Stay tuned for the best nighttime ritual to complete your moisturizing regimen.
