Hydrating Body butter Upgrade: Cocoa powder & vanilla – skin power house

ene naturals hydrating body butter with cocoa powder and vanilla oil

At Ene Naturals, we are constantly improving our products by improving on our recipes, rebranding and repackaging. We have been busy over the past few months doing all of these. Even though our recipes are improved and rebranding carried out, our commitment to purity remains the same. So we are please to launch our improved hydrating body butter which now contains pure cocoa powder and all natural vanilla oil.

Our hydrating body butter is made from natural butters like mango and Shea butter, cocoa butter as well as coconut oil, olive oil, avocado oil and sunflower oil. One would expect our body butter to be greasy but it is not at all. This is because we have added an all important ingredient – water! With water, the body butter is very smooth, light-weight and hydrating keeping your skin hydrated all day long without causing your skin to grease. Water purifies the skin as well which is why we have incorporated it.

And now, we have included pure African cocoa powder and vanilla oil in our body butter because cocoa powder is very beneficial to the skin. For a start, cocoa powder is very rich in anti-oxidants, minerals and vitamins. It is rich in anti-oxidant flavanoid which helps to repair damaged skin cause by exposure to UV rays and environmental toxins. As such, cocoa powder protects your skin from damage caused by the environment. This is one of the many benefits, which others include fighting wrinkles and signs of aging as well as giving your skin a beautiful, healthy, glowing skin. And this happens because cocoa powder helps blood circulation to skin and is very rich in vitamin E and collagen which all combine to keep your skin youthful and protected.

Vanilla oil on the other hand is an anti- inflammatory and anti-bacteria that protects your skin and helps fight infections and soothe irritated skin. As such, it is good for sensitive skin. It is also rich in anti-oxidants that protect the skin from free radicals and is rich in B vitamins that gives you healthy skin. With these benefits of vanilla oil and cocoa powder on the skin, we were too pleased to have them incorporated in our hydrating body butter.

Secrets of Natural skin care

I have been making natural skin care products for almost six years now so I can testify to the goodness of natural products for our skin, hair and general well being. When I use natural skin care products for myself and family, I do feel very good about myself because I know that I am keeping toxins which are common in cosmetic products away.

One of the known gains of using natural products is their safety to our skin and the environment at large. Natural products are made from organically grown plants and produce that do not pollute the earth as their systems of farming contain less toxins and are earth-friendly. So if you are looking for a way to contribute to protecting the earth and the environment, then patronize organic skincare products. You will feel good about yourself.

Second benefits of natural skin care products is that they protect your skin and body from toxins found in chemicals used for cosmetic products. Natural skin care products are chemical free, preservatives free and are free of artificial colors and other by-products so using natural products will be doing your body and health a whole lot of good. We are at an age where strange diseases and all sorts of cancer is on the increase, many of which have been linked to toxins found in cosmetic products. We must protect our skin and bodies; and going natural is the first step in the right direction.

Thirdly, natural skin care products contain a whole lot of goodness and nourishment for our skin and body which I will like to highlight below:

Anti-oxidants (Natural protectors):

Antioxidants protect our skin cells from damage and are responsible for skin cell regeneration and repair. Natural oils and produce are rich sources of antioxidants which help to repair and restore our skin.

Anti-inflammatory:

Natural oils and other natural skin care ingredients have high anti-inflammatory properties as such have healing powers to heal our skin of damages like fibrosis, spider veins, stretch marks, swelling, sunburn and a whole lot. Natural skin care products have the ability to heal the skin even faster than any store bought cosmetic products loaded with chemicals.

Collagen boosters:

Natural skin care ingredients are loaded with properties that boost collagen in our skin. Collagen is the main structural protein found in our skin and body and vitamin C plays a significant role in the formation of collagen. Natural skin care ingredients are loaded with vitamin C that boosts collagen, which gives the skin elasticity and helps fight signs of aging.

Anti-aging benefits

Natural skin care ingredients are loaded with vitamins and minerals including being natural sources of Vitamins A & E. When you use natural skin care products, you do not need to use synthetic vitamins A or E or collagen because they are so full of nourishment that they fight wrinkles, reverse the signs of aging and makes the skin youthful for longer. Elasticity is what the skin needs to stay youthful and this is what natural skin care products give.

Free radicals eliminators

Natural skin care ingredients eliminate free radicals because of their rich source of Vitamin C and Alpha hydroxy acids which help to strip the skin of dead skin cells. Take pure goat milk for example, it is so high in AHA and is why it is used for natural skin brightening as it strips the skin of dead cells for a clearer complexion. Citrus based essential oils like orange, lemon, grapefruit are also rich sources of vitamin C and is the reason why they are used in treating acne and pimples.

Natural Moisturizers:

Natural skincare products have the ability to lock in moisture and keep our skin hydrated for longer. So whether we choose to use natural oils or to use natural sources of milk, our skin will receive intense moisture which means beautiful soft and shiny skin as against dry, flaky skin.

Natural skin brightening:

Natural ingredients like goat milk, lemon oil, orange oil, Jasmine oil, coconut oil and a whole host of others naturally clear our skin of uneven skin tone by stripping the skin of dead cells. With clearer complexion means a more even skin tone and brighter complexion.

Since I started using natural skin care products, I spend less time and money on makeup now because I no longer have to battle free radicals or be ashamed to go out bare faced. I love my natural skin so much that I hardly wear makeup. And I believe that this is important because many people spend more time and money on makeup than on their skin. Embrace nature, embrace your skin and you will have only yourself to thank.

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!

Nature’s healing power … In a cup

Two weeks ago, I was involved in a gas explosion in my kitchen! My entire body was on fire, all the hairs on my body fried! Fortunately, the damage was minimal as only a few parts of my skin were badly injured.

Though I was hospitalized, I ditched all the topical creams given to me for my own natural skincare product – Bronze Goddess NG Body Butter –
IMG_0672.JPG

This is not a marketing ploy but a testament that nature is the greatest healer. I turned to this body butter for its truly natural ingredients: Shea butter, olive oil, hemp seed oil, Rosemary oil, lavender oil, Vitamin E, orange oil extract, among others. These essential oils and carrier oils are great for cell renewal because of its ability to accelerate collagen production so you can understand why I would turn to them.

It’s just been two weeks and my new skin is formed and healing very fast.

IMG_0671.JPG

This is not the first time I am having to depend on this body butter to heal my skin. I had a fibrous growth on my finger that was operated upon and removed. Two weeks after surgery, the fibrosis grew bigger and fatter. Rather than go back for a second surgery, I began massaging the body butter into the fibrous skin twice daily. In a matter of weeks, the growth disappeared permanently, with the surgery scar no longer visible. I also use the butter to treat spider veins as well.

I am always happy to share my knowledge with people so if you are resident in Lagos, Nigeria, please walk into my all natural spa for samples. If you would rather we ship them to you, then cost of shipment would be born by you.

You can buy this product from my online store – www.bronzegoddessmakeupstore.wordpress.com today!

Skin preservation is key to ageless skin

image

The pursuit of beautiful skin is a rather challenging task for a lot of women but nonetheless, our utmost mission as women. This drive – or rather – obsession, as the case may be, has led many women into making wrong decisions. For the average African woman, the quest for beautiful skin simply means a lighter complexion, which in most cases translates to skin bleaching,  even though they would never admit this reality.

The fastest selling skincare products out there either “lightens” or “whitens”, promising quick fixes like “whiter skin in 3 days”. It’s amazing how a well informed woman can believe that a skincare product can whiten her skin in three days! The sad thing though is that not only do these creams damage their skin, these damaged women expect skincare professionals like I to find the solution to their problem.
The sight of ruptured veins, beyond imaginable stretched skin (stretch marks) and terrifying sun burns still send chills down my spine. It is worrisome the length women would go for lighter or whiter skin, only to end up with eternal scars that make it impossible for their spouses to touch them.
This, unfortunately is true and what I get to see day to day on the job. Unfortunately for these women, the majority of damaged skin cases may never be solved as skin that has been over-stretched is hard to heal. Sadly too, this translates to early or premature aging of the skin.

Facts about your skin you mustn’t ignore:

Your skin is a living, breathing organism; as such has its limits

Skin lightening or whitening products contain steroids and harmful chemicals like hydroquinone which damages the skin especially when it comes in contact with the sun. So steriods- plus -whiteners- plus-sun exposure means dehydration of the skin, sun burn and aging of the skin.

Your skin needs moisturisers and oils to give it suppleness and needed moisture which lightening or whitening products do not contain. This excessive drying of your skin causes wrinkles and fine lines.

Your skin needs collagen to stay young. So for as long as you are substituting moisturisers for skin whiteners,  you are accelerating aging.

Your skin needs oils as vitamins A & E,  which are vital for the production of collagen are predominantly found in oils.

A lighter or whiter skin does not mean beautiful skin; a healthy skin does.

While some women are guilty of exposing their skin to whiteners, others over process their skin. I know ladies who wash their face with soap, use cleanser and toner and still scrub their face daily. That is too much for one face and soon, you are breaking into acne or rashes. Excessive washing and cleansing leads to excessive drying of the skin, which strips the skin of sebum and causes imbalance in body oil. Whether you have acne or not, choose between a soap or foaming cleanser to wash your face with and then use a toner. Less is more.

Why skin preservation?

I treat my skin like an egg – very delicately because I know that prevention is better than cure; and that by preserving my skin, am delaying the aging process for a youthful skin for longer. By preserving my skin, am in fact, saving on some serious cash as I wouldn’t resort to plastic surgery in the future. Once your skin adjust to preservation mode, it stays healthy and youthful for longer.

Tips to adhere

Moisturize,  moisturize! Always buy lotions or creams rich in collagen, Vitamins A and E with essential oils for lubrication and gloss. To stay young, I make my own cream.

image

I made this out of pure aloe vera gel, Vitamins A, C, E,  almond oil, coconut oil, carrot oil, lemon oil and lavender and rosemary oils. This cream is moisturising,  fights wrinkles and aging as well as give me radiant skin.

I stopped using soap a long time ago. I now make my own face wash and body wash from castille soap into which I add coconut oil, olive oil and almond oil and carrot oil. I wash my face with cotton pads for deep cleansing so I don’t use my finger.

Brightening face wash and body wash

image

To tone,  I simply diluted my Boots rosewater and glycerine with equal part water and I tone with cotton pad. For some reasons, glycerine and rose water is harsh on me but I need the healing, moisturising and age fighting properties in it so I dilute with water and it works perfectly.

This is me; I don’t expect everyone to buy into my regime but I advice you think long term before using anything on your skin. You do not need to be three shades lighter to be beautiful; your goal should be having healthy, radiant skin for the long term

image

I embraced natural skincare for years now and am quite pleased that I don’t battle acne,  rash, sun burn or stretch marks. My skin is toned with the right elasticity. So if ageless beauty is what you want, then embrace skin preservation.

Cheers!
