The Essence of MiEssence

MiEssence organic skin care

The best for your healthy skin, skin problems and dry skin, nutrition and more!

 

MiEssence is the first company in the world to achieve international organic certification for its skin care, hair, body, cosmetic, oral and nutrition products.

The products are certified organic to food standard.  That means they are so pure you can eat them!

 

How the products are made

 

MiEssence products are made by cold formulation so this means the ingredients are not heated as heat can destroy the active parts of ingredients.

The products contain 100% beneficial ingredients and 100% active ingredients.

They contain            NO fillers

NO synthetics

NO emulsifiers

NO surfactants

NO pH adjusters

NO tap water

As a Pharmacist I don’t know if I can stress to you how excited I was to discover this company and this information!

So many products out there contain ingredients that have been heated in production as this makes it easier to get all the ingredients to mix together nicely.  However heat kills things and so the positive benefits of the ingredients may be reduced or lost altogether.

A lot of products out there also contain ingredients that are there just to make them look or smell nice or go on to the skin smoothly or create suds.  A lot of these ingredients can be harmful to use when they are absorbed in to our skin.  MiEssence has 100% active ingredients so this means every ingredient is in there for a reason that is beneficial to us.

 

Freshness

 

MiEssence is so unique as they manufacture their products fresh EVERY MONTH! The products, when ordered by a customer, are shipped directly to the customer.  There is no sitting around in a warehouse or shop first.  The products also last as long as other commercial preparations.

 

Aloe Vera as a base

 

Most skin care products contain water as the base, or main part, of the product.  MiEssence products contain aloe vera gel as the base because it accelerates skin cell growth.  This means the skin makes more skin cells at a faster rate to make our skin softer, plumper and younger!  Sounds good to me!!  Remember EVERY ingredient in MiEssence products serves a purpose and is not just there to take up space.

 

Why organic?

 

I could write a lot on this topic but I’ll keep things brief for now.

Organic ingredients are higher vitality, full of nutrition and energy.  Even the packaging of MiEssence products is non-toxic and beneficial for the ingredients.

Unfortunately some products may state that they are organic even though this is not true.  Always look for the Australian Certified Organic and/or USDA Organic seal on a product.

Natural does not mean organic.  Natural ingredients are ingredients that can be found in nature but can contain pesticide residue.  Organic ingredients do not contain pesticides.

How to prevent and treat dry skin on your lips.

how to prevent and treat dry skin on your lips

Keep your lips kissable and prevent dry skin

Just as the rest of our skin gets dry in winter so do our lips.  This is usually due to wind and heating.  There are several things you can do to prevent and treat dry skin on your lips.

Do NOT lick them!!

Licking lips stops them from being dry for about one second then our saliva dries and they are even drier than before! Lip lickers often have a red ring around their mouths from this habit.  Don’t lick dry skin on your lips!

Keep lips protected.

Before going to bed and before going outside in cold and windy weather apply a lip balm or ointment to act as a barrier to cold and wind and to serve as a moisturiser also.  If possible use a scarf to shield your lips when outside.  Try to avoid having a heater directly facing you as this will definitely cause dry skin on your lips quickly.

Drink water.

This is important at any time but will help to keep your lips from being dry.  Dry lips are one of the signs of dehydration.  Keep that water bottle handy to keep hydrated.

 

To make sure your lips are soft and kissable use MiEssence Jaffa Lip Balm day and night.  Nutritious shea butter, avocado and sunflower oils soften and smooth dry skin on chapped lips.

How to avoid dry skin in winter

how to avoid dry skin in winter

Avoiding dry skin this winter

Looking after our skin in winter is just as important as it is in summer. Wind, heating and wearing certain fabrics can all affect our skin. Dry skin is the main skin problem I see in winter. Other skin conditions people have often stem from dry skin also. Dryness makes skin itchy so we scratch. Our fingernails carry a lot of germs which can often cause an infection in our skin which will need to be treated. Those with eczema and other skin conditions need to be extra careful to stay moisturised to minimise flareups and infections.

So let’s explore ways to stop our skin from being dry to prevent problems but most importantly to keep us looking good and slow down aging!

The most important thing to NOT do

Do NOT use soap. This is very important as soap strips the natural oils out of our skin and makes our skin dry. Squeaky clean is not good. Even though you don’t usually notice it our skin naturally has an oily layer and we want to keep it there! Soaps have something called a surfactant (technical name that you don’t need to remember) which is the thing that grabs on to oil and removes it from a surface. It is fine to have a surfactant in a dishwashing liquid so that greasy food can be removed from a dish but we don’t want this in a skin cleanser. Now just to avoid confusion, and hopefully not cause more, not all soaps come in bar form and not all bars are soaps. A lot of liquid body washes that market themselves as ‘natural’ contain soap and you can get cleaners in bar form that do not contain soap.

So look for cleansers that are soap free.

Things to avoid in a cleanser

  • soap
  • surfactants
  • emulsifiers
  • pH adjusters
  • synthetics
  • parabens
  • any ingredient that looks like a chemical name!

Basically there are way too many things to list. Have a look at the ingredients in whatever product you use. If it contains any of the things listed above or anything chemically sounding then it is not the best thing for your skin. Not only this, ingredients are absorbed through our skin in to our blood stream. Our blood stream is not a good place for toxic ingredients!!

Important things TO do

Limit time in the shower/bath. Use warm and not overly hot water. I’m guilty myself of spending too much time under the hot water, especially in winter. The benefit of shorter, cooler washing time is that less of that lovely natural oil is stripped from our skin.

For those needing to shave (if you can’t just wear long pants!) make sure you use a SOAP FREE shaving cream or lotion which will add a protective layer to your skin before you shave. Moisturise afterwards also.

Pat your skin dry after washing rather than rubbing. This also helps to keep your natural skin oil on your skin and not on your towel. This also gets your skin ready for the next important step.

Moisturise! This is so important especially after washing. Applying moisturiser to damp skin is the best idea as the moisturiser gets trapped in the surface layers to prevent dry skin.
