Great Looking Skin For Under £15.00

It doesn't take much time or money to ensure your skin is kept in tip top fact many of the cold pressed oils found at Belenos Therapy have multiple uses from treating face and hair to nails and cracked heals.You maybe surprised to know that one bottle of 100ml Rosehip seed oil can treat so many different areas and skin complaints.

Our skin is the largest organ in the body absorbing up to 60% of what is applied so this means that most of what you put onto our skin is absorbed.Our skin is designed protect and it is  first line of defence against bacteria and virus.

We have all experienced at some point tight dry skin. Usually after sleepless night, too much stress over indulgence or due to to much alcohol. Since the skin is the biggest organ it becomes dehydrated...its a large thirsty organ.You can reduce this by reducing your daily intake of white sugar refined foods and  fizzy drinks.
Avoid leaving make up on at night and try and get a couple of days a week where you don't apply any make-up..leave your skin free to breath. And always ensure you have clean pillow cases.

Food can act as a great source to balance to your skins appearance ..the brighter the fruit the better caretonoid-rich foods such as carrot juice and tomato will enhance the quality of your skin. Oils such as Avocado Oil, Hemp seed ,Evening primrose and Olive can be excellent for dryness and dull skin. Use them as part of your skin care routine or increase their use in your diet.

Although sometimes we overload by externally consuming too much, which can have a damaging effect on our skin we are often using skin care products that are damaging too and we don't even realise.
Many popular shower gels shampoos and moisturisers and soaps,even when they are labelled as 'gentle''natral' or pure are usually packed with chemicals they can be harsh on skin and can make skin conditions.You don't need Parabens or SLS in skin care to make it a wonderful skin care product. By changing you usually skin care product to paraben and  SLS free products you are reducing the over load of chemicals.(see paraben free blog)

If you have always used high cost high end products you may find it difficult to believe that for under £15.00 you really can get exactly what you need to promote healthy glowing skin.Changing from conventional products to natural benefits can have wonderful effects on some users skin and once they have tried the natura way there is no other way,some will not experience any changes but for as little as .£ worth a try!

There are 3 main natural products that are needed.

1. Water - your skin needs water.Ensusre your are always hydrated inside and out.
2.Cleansing - you don't need fancy brands you can use a natural floral waters.
Floral waters  when used as a facial toner serve three essential purposes:
  • they remove any dirt or residue
  • they re balance the skin pH
  • they infuse the skin with plant ingredients to fight skin complaints such as ageing, blemishes, redness and acne
3.Moisturise - Using Natural Rosehip seed oil as a moisturiser is the best pure oil you can give your thirsty skin. It is contains not artificial chemicals or fragrance and is perfect for fine line,delicate eye area. You can even use it to condition your dry hands and condition nails.

Bergamot Essential Oil - beautiful benefits for skin care

Our featured Essential Oil this month is Bergamot..

There are two types of Bergamot - one is a beautiful  herb known as Monarda didyma,which  produces stunning orange scented dark red and purple flowers and mae a great ground cover plant in a herb garden,and the other is Citrus aurantium var. bergamia (also known as C. bergamia), of the Rutaceae family and is also known as Bergamot orange.
It is from the Citrus aurantium that the essential oil is obtained. Although the tree is native to South East Asia,most of the fruit used for essential oil purpose is now grown in Italy
Bergamot Orange can can grow up to four meters high, with star-shaped flowers and smooth leaves, bearing citrus fruit resembling a cross between an orange and a grapefruit, it is from the rind of both ripe and unripe fruit that the oil is extracted.

Pure Therapeutic Bergamot oil  has a wonderful, rich, sweet-tart aroma. 
Bergamot is a firm favourite with aromatherapist and within the skin care industry as its an ideal essential oil for creating a relaxed and happy feeling, its a balancing oil for oily skin, can give the skin a healthy glow and can help combat acne and that very important factor help help fight wrinkles.

Bergamot also blends well with most other essential oils such as  geranium, jasmine, mandarin, nutmeg orange rosemary, sandalwood.  And works well as a burning oil to help with feelings of sadness,the effects of colds and flu, PMS and SAD.
The only problem with Bergamot essential oil is that  it is phototoxic - which means that if you have it on your skin when out in the sun, or on a sunbed, it will cause pigmentation of the skin.
Although we sell Bergaptene-Free Bergamot oil for use in skin care, massage oils,  it is still advisable to keep skin out of the sun.

A recipe to rejuvenate your skin and bring it back to life. The sugar is an excellent exfoliate to remove dead skin cells - leaving you skin soft and smooth
You can find the main ingredients on supermarket shelves and pick up the luxury extras that make it wonderful from for less than £8.00

You will need
One Cup of Brown Sugar 
30ml  Argan Oil 
and 4- 5 drops of Lavender essential oil.

Slowly mix the Argan Oil into the sugar slowly, stir to keep the consistency smooth. Add 4 drops of Lavender essential oil. You may also want to add additional ingredients to your scrubs like clays or aloe vera for its skin soothing properties or a small amount honey to improve the texture or your scrub. Dispense into sterilised PET or Glass Jar.

You can customise this recipe with any other skin loving cold pressed oils and essential oils However we do NOT recommend using  "fragrance oils" they are chemical loaded irritants that have no benefit for your skin.. other than to make you smell like a cherry a chocolate bar or even an Christmas alcoholic drink!! They can cause irritation or even allergic symptoms that can cause lasting skin damage. Always use essential oils which are true plant oils expressed by pressing or by steam distillation from the actual plants.

Store in a cool place or refrigerate and keep for no more than 3 weeks.  Don't forget no preservative have been used so if it looks or smells funny - make a new batch.

The above recipe is for personal use only and if you are making any scrubs or other cosmetics to sell or to give away to family and friends remember to ensure they are covered by a current safety assessment.
