OPEN YOUR EYES TO THE BENEFITS OF SERUMS

serum1

When we meet or talk to someone, the first thing we do is look at their face and into their eyes. That is why many of us are self-conscious or down right just hate the visible signs of facial aging such as crow’s feet, puffiness, dark circles and fine lines,

If you have never used a serum, the effectiveness, ingredients, and ease of application provide multiple benefits to the delicate, thin and fragile skin around your eyes.

Serums absorb into the skin easily and more deep giving you faster results. They are fluid and therefore lighter than creams. The application is a bit different then applying a cream, meaning they are less likely to get into your eyes which could cause irritation.

Eye serum can also be worn under your make up, however the most benefits are gained while sleeping as that is when the skin is naturally repairing and renewing itself.

BE NATURAL ORGANIC’S bestselling Eye Repair Night Serum is an excellent choice to harness all these benefits with our cold pressed certified organic ingredients. We’ve added Evening Primrose Oil, high in fatty GLA, Sea Buckhorn Oil with abundant amounts of antioxidants and multiple vitamins including the rare fatty acid Omega 7. Rose Hip, Moringa, and Jojoba Oils with additional vitamins, humectants, plant hormones, all soothing and age defying.

Important to remember; the skin around our eyes are more prone to creasing, sagging, and wrinkles which can appear on people of all ages depending on time in the sun, use of tanning beds, lifestyle choices, etc. So young or older, it’s never too soon to start protecting and restoring with serum to smooth fine lines, give skin around the eyes a firmer, brighter, less puffy, more youthful look.

P.S. Don’t forget to add a big beautiful smile!

What is Micellar Water?

Copy of bigstock--182962969

Pronounced “MY-CELLER” This ORGANIC multi-tasking no rinse cleansing water is a must have for your beauty regimen!

What’s the secret that makes this water so special and how does it work? Small little wonders named “Micelles” which are tiny molecules suspended in soft water that are attracted to dirt, oil and grime on your skin.

Micelles draw out the dirt and impurities without drying the skin. Some facial cleansers strip the skin. Micelles work differently by clinging to the dirt and makeup, then dissolving them away. What it leaves behind is clean, fresh, hydrated skin.

Micellar water works for all skin types—including very dry, acne-prone sensitive skin and is perfect for those on the go thanks to no rinsing required.

Watch out for our new product launch of our Micellar Cleansing Water!

Exfoliation is Crucial to Keeping Skin Healthy and Clear

Skincare Woman Washing Face  Foaming Facewash Soap Scrub On Skin

Exfoliation is crucial to keeping skin healthy and clear. As we age, our skin is not as efficient at turning over its dead skin cells as when we were young. Consequently, old skin cells pile up and make the skin appear dry and dull. Surface cells clog the pores and prevent optimal absorption of products.

We offer both chemical and physical exfoliation products to accommodate all skin types.

Chemical Exfoliation –

The Daily Botanical Enzyme Peel offers 10% lactic acid which effectively dissolves dead skin cells and other debris that clogs your pores and prevents optimal absorption of products. Start using once per week, and increase usage as able.

Physical Exfoliation –

The Pomegranate Facial Scrub is a gentle scrub using natural jojoba beads. This scrub can be used daily.

The Mother of Pearl Facial Scrub is a fairly aggressive scrub that removes dead skin and other debris that clogs the pores. Once per week is recommended.

Be Natural Organics uses the finest ingredients available for all of our products. We use organic, wild crafted and Co2 derived plant materials in crafting each product. These ingredient are essential in producing the finest grade oils, for optimal skin nourishment and repair.

Benefits of Pumpkin

Pumpkin

Pumpkin is a type of winter squash that belongs to the Cucurbitaceae family.

It’s native to North America and particularly popular around Thanksgiving and Halloween.

In the US, pumpkin typically refers to Cucurbita pepo, an orange type of winter squash. In other regions, such as Australia, pumpkin may refer to any type of winter squash.

While commonly viewed as a vegetable, pumpkin is scientifically a fruit, as it contains seeds. That said, it’s nutritionally more similar to vegetables than fruits.

Beyond its delicious taste, pumpkin is nutritious and linked to many health benefits.

Here are 9 impressive nutrition and health benefits of pumpkin.

Highly Nutritious and Particularly Rich in Vitamin A

Pumpkin has an impressive nutrient profile.

One cup of cooked pumpkin (245 grams) contains (2):

Calories: 49

Fat: 0.2 grams

Protein: 2 grams

Carbs: 12 grams

Fiber: 3 grams

Vitamin A: 245% of the Reference Daily Intake (RDI)

Vitamin C: 19% of the RDI

Potassium: 16% of the RDI

Copper: 11% of the RDI

Manganese: 11% of the RDI

Vitamin B2: 11% of the RDI

Vitamin E: 10% of the RDI

Iron: 8% of the RDI

Small amounts of magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, folate and several B vitamins.

Besides being packed with vitamins and minerals, pumpkin is also relatively low in calories, as it’s 94% water

It’s also very high in beta-carotene, a carotenoid that your body turns into vitamin A.

Moreover, pumpkin seeds are edible, nutritious and linked to numerous health benefits.

High Antioxidant Content May Reduce Your Risk of Chronic Diseases

Free radicals are molecules produced by your body’s metabolic process. Though highly unstable, they have useful roles, such as destroying harmful bacteria.

However, excessive free radicals in your body create a state called oxidative stress, which has been linked to chronic illnesses, including heart disease and cancer

Pumpkins contain antioxidants, such as alpha-carotene, beta-carotene and beta-cryptoxanthin. These can neutralize free radicals, stopping them from damaging your cells (4).

Test-tube and animal studies have shown that these antioxidants protect skin against sun damage and lower the risk of cancer, eye diseases and other conditions (5)

However, keep in mind that more human-based research is needed to make health recommendations.

Packs Vitamins That May Boost Immunity

Pumpkin is loaded with nutrients that can boost your immune system.

For one, it’s high in beta-carotene, which your body turns into vitamin A

Studies show that vitamin A can strengthen your immune system and help fight infections. Conversely, people with a vitamin A deficiency can have a weaker immune system (7)

Pumpkin is also high in vitamin C which has been shown to increase white blood cell production, help immune cells work more effectively and make wounds heal faster

Aside from the two vitamins mentioned above, pumpkin is also a good source of vitamin E, iron and folate — all of which have been shown to aid the immune system as well

Contains Compounds That Promote Healthy Skin

Pumpkins are loaded with nutrients that are great for your skin.

For one, it’s high in carotenoids like beta-carotene, which your body turns into vitamin A.

In fact, one cup (245 grams) of cooked pumpkin packs 245% of the RDI for vitamin A.

Studies show that carotenoids like beta-carotene can act as a natural sunblock.

Once ingested, carotenoids are transported to various organs including your skin. Here, they help protect skin cells against damage from harmful UV rays

Pumpkin is also high in vitamin C, which is essential for healthy skin. Your body needs this vitamin to make collagen a protein that keeps your skin strong and healthy

Moreover, pumpkins contain lutein, zeaxanthin, vitamin E and many more antioxidants that have been shown to boost your skin’s defenses against UV rays.

Seasonal Transition Meditation

fall leaves

Each of the seasons has its own particular energy that represents where nature is in its recurring cycle of birth, transformation, and death.  In the months when summer transitions to fall, nature prepares for the coming changes by shedding what it no longer needs.

However, winter is really about hibernation and the incubation of what will be renewed again with the coming of spring. In actuality, there is no death—just a long, deep sleep as nature’s energy changes form.

Let Go of Unnecessary Things

You know that the days will be shorter, the temperature will be colder, and some of your creature comforts won’t be available. What do you want to let go of? What has become too burdensome or unnecessary on your journey?

Like nature, you need to clear out the thick brush and rid yourself of things you’ve been afraid to let go of. It’s time to abandon the rules of society that seek to convince you it’s not acceptable to speak your truth—to quiet that voice that convinces you to stay uncomfortably comfortable right where you are.

Now Breathe… and Meditate

During this fall season, retreat inward, light a candle, and see what cobwebs need clearing.  

Try this guided meditation to tune in, listen, and reflect on where you are in your life.

Find a comfortable seat on your couch, chair, or in your favorite place in nature.

Settle into your body by connecting with your breath—slowly inhaling through your nose, slowly exhaling through your mouth. Notice how your body and mind begin to soften and relax.

Visualize a scene from nature during the fall: the reds, browns, darker greens, and yellows of the terrain around you, a cool breeze blowing, and the dryness of the brush, branches, and earth.

Now, imagine that your body, your breath, your emotions, and your mind are an extension of nature. Perhaps you see yourself as a tall oak tree, the mist rising off a lake at dawn, or you’re simply basking in the late afternoon sunset or the golden glow of a harvest moon.

Be aware that you are about to embark on an inward journey. As you prepare to rest and prepare for the budding of a new you after the winter ice thaws, dare yourself to dream of:

  • who you would like to be
  • the activities you want to do
  • the environment you thrive in most
  • the lifestyle you want to have when you wake up from your deep sleep

Next, notice an area of your life where there is some heaviness—a burden or an unnecessary load. Let yourself see where there is an over-accumulation of physical stuff, emotional upset, mental challenges, or spiritual disconnect.

Next, reconnect with your dream of what your life could look like, feel like, and sound like once you are free of the burdensome weight you have been carrying. Create an internal representation (a visual image, a feeling, or a sound) of how you, your life, and your surroundings could be different.

Now, envisioning the traits or characteristics that are empowering you to create change, ask yourself “what action steps do I need to take to feel inspired and motivated to charge powerfully forward?  Ask your heart for guidance rather than your intellect, and allow yourself to hear what practice you need to cultivate or what action you need to take to prune your inner-outer world to clear a path for your next journey.

When you are ready, take a few slow, deep breaths and open your eyes. Take out your journal or notebook and make notes about whatever came up for you during the guided meditation. Write down:

  • How you want to be living your life
  • What needs to be cleared out or pruned
  • What qualities or characteristics you need to embrace
  • What specific action steps you need to take, including something you can do today

Go do that thing today. Tomorrow, do the next thing, and so on.

This will help you take charge of your life. It’s a process of letting go of anything that isn’t you—toxic relationships, limiting beliefs, and obstacles that prevent you from living your dream.

So now is the time to let go of anything you need to leave behind as you begin a new season.

Fantastic Fall Things to do in Michigan

scenery.jpg

Be Natural Organics is a Michigan based business. #MadeinMichigan. Be Natural Organics is committed to providing the finest organic and natural skin care. Here are some great adventures that you can do in Michigan.

Go Hiking – Michigan’s beautiful hiking trails grow even more beautiful in the fall, when trees blaze with color. Visit the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park in the U.P. to see that brilliant foliage against a backdrop of Lake Superior and the Lake of the Clouds. Or head to the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore to combine your autumn hike with a breathtaking run down the dunes.

Pick Apples

Autumn’s sunshine brings apple season to Michigan. Head to Robinette’s Apple Haus & Winery in Grand Rapids for fresh-picked bushels of Macintosh and Delicious and stay for sweet-tart cider and warm donuts. Your family can pick their own fruit at Crane Orchards U-Pick and Corn Maze in Fennville, each tidy row of apple trees labeled to help you find the perfect variety for pie baking.

Sip Cider

Sip a glass of cider at Rochester Hills’ Yates Cider Mill and you’ll be following a tradition that stretches back to Civil War days—Yates has produced cider from its water-powered mill since 1863. The name is funny, but the cider-sipping is good at Knaebe’s Mmmunchy Krunchy Apple Farm and Cider Mill in Rogers City. Looking for something a little stronger? Vander Mill Cider Mill & Winery in Spring Lake promises soft and hard ciders made solely from locally-grown apples, or jazzed up with ginger, berries, hops or poblano peppers.

Visit a Winery

Autumn brings the crush to Michigan’s 100+ wineries. Sample the state’s crisp Pinot Grigios, fruity Rieslings and dry Pinot Noirs at one of the state’s wine trails: The Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail and Wineries of Old Mission Peninsula Trails near Traverse City; the Bay View Wine Trail in the Petoskey Area; the Lake Michigan Shore Wine Trail in southwest Michigan; and the Southeast Michigan Pioneer Wine Trail near Jackson.

Celebrate Oktoberfest in Frankenmuth

With the nickname “Michigan’s Little Bavaria,” it’s no surprise that Frankenmuth celebrates Oktoberfest like no place else in the state. Enjoy live polka music and dancing, traditional German food, wiener dog races and a glass of beer from Frankenmuth Brewery.

Fish for Salmon

Life slows down on Michigan’s pristine rivers, and never more so than with a fly rod in your hands. Try your hand at landing a salmon, steelhead or trout at one of the state’s best fly fishing rivers: the Pere Marquette near Baldwin; the Manistee River; St. Mary’s River near Sault Ste. Marie; or the Grand River near Grand Rapids.

Book a Room

Check into a cozy Michigan inn, and wile away the hours on colorful forest walks or before a roaring fire. Relax at the turn-of-the-century Laurium Manor Inn on the Keweenaw Peninsula, once the elaborate mansion of a copper mine owner. The 100-year-old Walloon Lake Inn sits on the sparkling shore of its namesake lake and just a short drive from the golf courses and shopping in Petoskey. Or visit the National House Inn, Michigan’s oldest. Set in the heart of Marshall, the inn was built in 1835 and once served as a stagecoach inn and a stop along the Underground Railroad.

Corn Maze!

Kids and adults love the challenge of finding their way through intricate labyrinths carved out of towering corn fields. Bestmaze in Williamston combines a 20-acre corn maze with laser tag. Crane Orchards U-Pick and Corn Maze in Fennville promises a 20-acre corn maze in west Michigan, while Alber’s Orchard & Cider Mill boasts a 7-acre corn maze and a smaller straw bale maze on their farm in Manchester, in southeast Michigan.
