Moisturizing & purifying mask recipe for soft,smooth & clear skin

Hi guys, I have a beauty regime that includes weekend Spa D-I-Ys that begin with me soaking my feet in warm water and Dead Sea salts and followed later by giving myself a well-deserved facial at home. This is necessary because this gives me an opportunity to pamper and nurture my skin which every skin deserves.

So, set weekends aside for D-I-Y facials that allows you to rid your skin of dead cells, stress and tiredness by exfoliating, steaming, masking and toning your skin for a cleaner, smoother, youthful and brighter skin. People complain a lot about having dull complexion and the solution usually lies in the amount of time you spend to care for your skin. So by dedicating weekends to pampering your skin, you are sure to achieve better skin.

Here are my simple steps to weekend D-I-Y facials at home.

1. I begin by washing my face with warm water without soap. Usually, just by using cotton pads soaked in warm water to massage my face removes surface dirts.

2. Exfoliate your skin. I use my own natural products as I have sensitive skin. I usually scrub my face and neck with Ene Naturals Moisturizing scrub. I love moisturizers so most of my products moisturize the skin as they make the skin soft and smooth. After gentle scrubbing, rinse off with warm water.

3. I follow with steaming my face over hot steam. I would bring water to boil, pour into a deep bowl and after lowering my head – stay a few inches away from the hot steam – and then I cover my head with towel. With my face trapped in the steam under the towel, the hot steam is able to melt the fats and dirts deposited on my skin, especially those clogging my pores. Sometimes, I place fresh lemon peels in the hot water to help melt the fat on my face away. I usually steam for 15 minutes.

4. Afterward, I apply Mask. I have an Organic Mask that purifies the skin as well as treat acne and fight wrinkles. And since I am obsessed with having baby soft skin, I always add pure goat milk powder to the mask.

The Ene Naturals Organic Mask Powder is made of pure bentonite clay, African sandalwood, frankincense and rose. All of these ingredients have purifying properties which means they treat acne and blemishes and they also have anti-wrinkle properties as well. And then, I add goat milk into it. Goat milk contains alpha hydroxy acid which helps to strip the skin of dead cells as well as vitamins and anti-oxidants that nourish, moisturize the skin and treat wrinkles. So with these amazing benefits of goat milk and the Ene Natural Organic Mask Powder, I simply can’t let go.

So to make my moisturizing and purifying mask, all you need are:

1. 1 tablespoon of Ene Naturals Organic Mask Powder and

2. 1 teaspoon of Ene Naturals Goat milk powder.

3. Add a little water to mix into a paste and apply on the face and neck. Allow to dry and leave on for 15 minutes and rinse off with warm water.

5. The only toner I use on my skin is pure goat milk. Usually, I take just 1 teaspoon of Ene Naturals pure goat milk powder, add just a little water and with cotton pad, I clean my face and neck. I rinse off with warm water.

Do this weekly and you will be amazed at your skin. The result is a softer, smoother, brighter and younger skin.

You can order for any of these products on the online store on this website.

Cheers!

Why we are a bespoke natural skincare brand

So we create and stock a wide variety of natural skincare products for all different skin types and skin concerns; but we are heavily bespoke because the process of interacting with clients through free consultation and customizing unique products tailored to a client’s individual needs have actually helped us grow and expand pretty fast. Every client wants to be given that personal touch that is lacking in our fast-paced markets and especially in the area of skincare where clients have different skin types and skin concerns like allergies and what is tolerable.

Our bespoke natural skincare services begin with free consultation which allows us to gather information about the client’s past skincare regime, allergies if any and much more. At the end of the consultation, either we recommend one of our generic products or we customize. What I personally find interesting is that clients want the best for their skin and are happy when you meet their satisfaction.

Customizing skincare products sometimes can involve tweaking the ingredients in a generic product to suit the individual needs of a client or to create a brand new product entirely. Sometimes it is about changing the texture and packaging of our products. Take this one below for an example:

Ene Naturals, alpha Arbutin lotion, natural skincare brand nigeria
This product originally is a lotion in a jar and while the client loved the goodness that this product provides, she does not like lotions. So she had us change the texture from a light weight lotion to a much thicker cream in a tub.

Collagen lotion, anti aging soap and lotion, ene Naturals Collagen plus
Similarly, these two above have been tweaked as well. The Collagen+ Lightening anti aging soap originally comes in a tub and is made with goat milk while the cream is usually packaged in a smaller tub and made with goat milk as well. For this client, we switched the goat milk for pure coconut milk, changed some ingredients; packaged the soap in a 500ml jar rather than a 250ml tub while the cream was packaged in a 250ml tub rather than in a 100ml tub.

Bespoke services can be challenging but very exciting and positively challenging because your goal is a happy customer.

At Ene Naturals, customer satisfaction is our ultimate goal so if you want our bespoke services, contact us today for free consultation.

Cheers!

The joy of processing organic turmeric

Shredded raw turmeric, processing fresh turmeric
From raw turmeric to shredded bits

I have a penchant for wanting to control the sourcing of all natural ingredients used in my natural skincare products. As a natural skincare brand, being sincere through and through in the quality of ingredients I use is very important to me and the reason why my brand is consistently rising at a healthy pace.

In the regard, I went to a turmeric farm to source fresh turmeric myself. I went through the rigors of sorting, cleaning, washing, shredding, drying, milling and packaging just because I wanted to give my clients the best natural products or ingredients that they deserve. The process of making turmeric powder is rigorous but I am happy with the final result.

Turmeric powder
Organically sourced turmeric

Turmeric powder is great for the skin, hair and general health. I use turmeric with warm water and honey to treat cough as well as use it in cooking. Turmeric contains anti-inflammatory properties so it helps reduce scarring, wrinkles, acne, rash and other skin issues. It can be used as an exfoliator (scrub), cleanser and mask.

You can purchase this product online from the organic store on this website.

Delivery available within Nigeria and world wide.

Customer Inspiration: Rosemary body lotion

Some time last year, a customer of mine tasked me to creating an anti-odor body lotion for her sweaty, active child. Having similar challenge in one of my kids, I created a moisturizing body lotion with plant extracts sage, mint, Rosemary and basil to help neutralize odor caused by excessive sweating which active kids are prone to. This product contains sweet almond oil to help moisturize the skin and Jasmine oil, orange oil and lemon oil to protect the skin as well as brighten the skin and protect from dull complexion.

I am pleased with the feedback so far as the lotion has helped in keeping the body smelling fresh. Though it has not completely eliminated body odor, I am currently working on creating a 100 percent organic deodorant body mist for kids to work hand-in-hand with this lotion. I am quite excited about this new project of mine.

You can order for this product online here by visiting the organic shop on this site or on www.qeturah.com/enenaturals

Your feedback is much appreciated.

The customer as Co-creator at Ene Naturals 

Since I began my organic skincare business, I have always relied on customers for inspiration, ideas and suggestions. In fact, no business can be successful without putting the customer first. This is why at Ene Naturals, the customer is a co- creator. So I developed two moisturizing products – Ene Naturals Moisturizing black soap and Ene Naturals Brightening goatmilk lotion for the skin that needs deep moisturizing.

I was pleased with the products as they were received well.

Ene Naturals moisturizing liquid black soap, African black soap, African liquid black soap

So my original formulation includes: raw African black soap, shea butter, rosemary oil, aqua, jasmine oil, turmeric, coconut milk, Glycerine, vitamin E, lavender, orange oil, lemon oil and citric acid. And then I got a client who wanted a moisturizing liquid black soap that lightens as well as fight wrinkles so I had to tweak the product a bit by including collagen, retinol, goatmilk and kojic acid. Thus a new custom line was created – Custom M – I like to call it. My client also had me customizing my goatmilk lotion as well. 

Ene Naturals, brightening Goatmilk lotion, Goatmilk lotion
The original formulation contained raw goatmilk, aqua, coconut oil, lemon oil, orange oil, jasmine oil, carrot oil, vitamin E, Glycerine, collagen, retinol, turmeric and citric acid. In tweaking this for my client, I created a deep moisturizer that brightens one’s complexion and fights wrinkles. 

I was pleased to create the Custom M range which can now be ordered by people with similar taste. 


This shows that flexibility is very vital in businesses and to position one’s business for growth, one must be ope to the customer’s needs and put them at the forefront.

As a business owner, is there any way you’ve learnt something from your client? Pls do share!

Cheers!

DIY Face primer & shine control

I have used a variety of face primers and in the past when I ran out of primer, my go to product was Fruit of the earth Aloe vera gel and this is because it is very soft, velvety smooth and cool to the skin which is great for humid temperatures. But because it is not much of an oil control or shine control product, I wanted more so I searched the Web. 

What I love about DIY primers on the Web is that the ingredients are natural or organic, easy to make, cheap and very effective. So, here is my own recipe:

NATURAL INGREDIENTS FOR DIY FACE PRIMER & SHINE CONTROL 

To make an all natural, chemical free face primer, you will need :

1. 20% glycerine

2. 20% fruit of the earth Aloe vera gel or any brand

3. 30% witch hazel

4. 30% water

5. 10 – 15 drops of lemon essential oil

Both glycerin and aloe vera gel are soft, velvety smooth that leaves your skin feeling silky which is a great base for applying foundation and make great moisturizers. combining water, makes it even richer and helps to keep your skin hydrated. 

Witch hazel and lemon oil are great for oily skin because they keep shine away, rid acne and brighten your skin.

I now use this primer daily and my makeup lasts the entire day! Do give it a try!

Cheers!

Organic deep moisturizing body milk


So I started this new project to create a deep moisturizing body milk that nourishes the skin as well as protect the skin. My goal was to create a very soft textured lotion rich in Vitamin E and collagen that helps cell rejuvenation for youthful skin for longer.

The secret to youthful skin is deep moisturization so rather than wait till your skin has aged and then start spending so much money on anti aging products, you can protect your skin from premature aging and aging skin generally by moisturizing your skin. 

This was part of the reason I decided to create a body milk that not only provided deep moisturizing but ideal for people with sensitive skin which is why I made the body milk lotion with coconut oil and coconut milk. Other ingredients include collagen, vitamin E, lemon oil, jasmine oil, sandalwood oil and water. This product is not for sale yet as I intend to tweak it by adding goatsmilk to it. My desire is that People who use it benefit by having softer, smoother and youthful skin.

Am excited about completing this project and launching it soon!

Cheers!

Coconut milk & your skin

coconut milk

Coconut milk is rich in vitamin E and fatty acids as such is a good moisturizer for the skin and conditioner for the hair as it detangles hair for a softer texture. Coconut milk rich properties make it excellent for sensitive skin and it moisturizes the skin for a brighter, youthful skin.

There are various ways your skin can benefit from the richness of coconut milk. For a start, you could combine Castile soap with coconut milk to make a liquid coconut milk soap that can serve as moisturizing soap for the body and conditioning shampoo for the hair. 

As a cleanser, coconut milk serves as a nourishing makeup remover as well as serves as a toner which nourishes the skin, especially delicate skin to moisturize and brighten complexion.

If you want natural looking youthful skin, then incorporate coconut milk in your body lotion.

You can make a hair mask by combining coconut milk with honey and applying to your hair. Put on a shower cap and allow the heat from the shower cap to steam your hair for 20 minutes. Afterwards, rinse off with warm water. This will detangle your hair and give your hair a softer texture.

So buy an organic coconut milk today and begin benefiting from its richness.

Cheers!
