Regenerative capacity of skin:

Nature provides skin with its own defense mechanism. Anti-oxidant barrier is among such prime mechanisms. The skin has to face sun and other environmental pollution constantly. Over the years, the defense mechanism of the skin tends to wear out. This process is further hastened with the use of excessive chemicals-mixed cosmetics.  Such products take out the natural shine and render the skin more vulnerable to aging and lines.

To support skin against sun damage, pollutants, daily burn-out and age-related factors, the safer and reliable way would be to strengthen it.  The plants and minerals provide abundant supplies of right kind of ingredients which can maintain the elasticity of the skin.  Herbally Radiant has therefore combined hundreds of natural organic ingredients into its signature range of anti-aging products according to the skin type. For oily skin, it is the Rejuvenating Cleanser, Toner, Serum and Moisturizer, and for dry-combination skin, it is the Radiant Cleanser, Toner, Serum, Serum and Moisturizer.  Different organic ingredients have been used in these products in a focused manner which indeed create a rejuvenating effect on the skin.

Considering the prevailing exorbitant costs of highly branded inorganic products, Herbally Radiant has introduced its Rejuvenating and Radiant range of products by bringing down their costs substantially in order to bring them within the easy reach of most of its customers.  These products display natural organic ingredients in sufficient details to help customers make right choice. Only essential oils have been used in their production, especially to ensure that they are always skin-friendly even for those who have sensitive skin.

Chemical ingredients in beauty products:

The Environmental Working Group in a survey of more than two thousand adults found that the average woman encounters 168 chemical ingredients in her beauty regimen everyday. In the case of men, such ingredients were recorded at nearly 85.

With 90% of the 10,500 different chemicals used in personal care products, which have not been evaluated by the FDA for safety, it's impossible to feel comfortable while our skin is potentially absorbing many chemicals which could be harmful to skin. Some of these chemicals can harm the environment, too.

We should not take comfort with such consolation that beauty products contain small amounts of toxic chemicals. Even "active ingredients" that promise most benefits for our beauty make up just 1% of most beauty products being sold in the market.

The fact remains that we're using these products regularly, essentially creating a stockpile of some chemicals in our bodies which may only cause harm after long use. Some preservative chemicals used in cosmetics (like parabens) have been shown to mimic the hormone estrogen, contributing to a number of health related issues, especially for mothers breast feeding their children. Pregnant mothers can pass along the effects of some chemicals to their unborn off springs.

Herbally Radiant has, therefore, been promoting use of safe and beneficial organic skin care products. It is manufacturing herbal organic products in US according to its own formulations. These are receiving very encouraging response from the customers.  A special mention could be made of the anti-acne formulations in its Clean range (Cleansers, Toners, Serum and Scrub), which have been developed to fight acne and related problems.These special products are being patented by Herbally Radiant to prevent misuse by counterfeiters.

Common ACNE problem in beauty care regime

Acne is not caused by any single factor. It occurs when sebaceous (oil) glands attached to the hair follicles are stimulated. Associated with increased oil production is a change in the manner in which the skin cells mature, predisposing them to clog the follicular pore. The clog can appear as a whitehead if it is covered by a thin layer of skin, or if exposed to the air, the darker exposed portion of the plug is called a "blackhead." Blackheads  are oxidized oil, not dirt. Excessive washing can dry and irritate the skin.

Some medications may cause or worsen acne, such as those containing iodides, bromides, or oral or injected steroids (Orasone, Prednicen-M, Liquid Pred), or the steroids that bodybuilders or athletes sometimes take). Other drugs that can cause or aggravate acne are anticonvulsant medications and lithium.

The right time to treat it is when it bothers you or when the potential for scarring develops. This can be when severe acne flares suddenly, for mild acne that just won't go away, or even when a single pimple decides to show up the week before your prom or wedding. 

Responding to requests from customers, Herbally Radiant has introduced Clean series of Cleanser, Toner, Scrub and Serum.  The combined effect of these has helped many in getting rid of their acne problem.  These are infused with organic antioxidant extracts and contain such nutrients for skin like tea tree essential oil, aloe vera, DMAE, MSM, etc.  Regular use of the Clean range products will render skin clear and bright.

Prevent Dryness in Winter with Skin Friendly Organic Moisturizer

     During dry winter months, skin's natural moisturizing capacity needs constant support. Attractively packaged chemical formulations in the market might look tempting due to their aggressive marketing, but it is important to use gentle skin-friendly organic moisturizers to prevent dryness and maintain bright skin. Non-organic moisturizers only provide a layer on skin surface, without providing nourishment through the pores on the skin.

     Herbally Radiant has introduced following special moisturizers this month to meet customers' needs at heavily discounted prices :

1) Minty Cocoa Indulgence - Nourishing Hand Cream  ($ 7.90): To prevent dryness in hands.

2)Cocoa Butter Body Cream - Rich and Deliciously Nourishing Cream for Dry Skin ($ 10.90) : To provide rich nutrients to body.

In winter, our cracked, dry and veiny hands could reveal effects of aging

As dermatologist Dr. Stuart Maddin, University of British Columbia, stressed, “skin on the back of the hands is very thin, and hands are, therefore very susceptible to damage which translates into loose skin, age spots and visible veins.”

The dermatologists have advised : 1) protect your hands from strong dishwashing liquid with latex gloves; 2) use of gentle hand soap as harsh cleaning stuff strips skin of its natural oils; and 3) keep hands adequately moisturized especially during the dry winter months.

Finding all kinds of harsh antibacterial hand wash, soaps, dishwashing liquids in the market, which render your hand skin susceptible to cracking, Herbally Radiant has specially launched gentle organic hand wash which prevents dryness and helps skin retain its natural moisture.  

Dermatologists point out that cold air and fierce winds deplete the skin of oil production, and when the skin loses oils that provide natural moisturizing elements, it can become very dry, inflamed and cracked. Regular moisturizing of hands is important in winter both due to cool and dryness in atmosphere and warm air from heaters-furnaces while inside the house. 

Regular application of Hand & Foot Lotion made by Herbally Radiant is especially useful in winter.

It is very timely that FDA has issued public warning against use of "antibacterial" hand wash and soaps with chemical composition. These can contribute to the creation of hardier, more resistant bacterial strains. Even American Medical Association does not recommend it. It has been reported that antibiotic resistant infections now claim more lives each year than the "modern plague" of AIDS, costing $ 20 billion a year to the American health system.

Herbally Radiant has therefore launched gentle organic hand wash without any sulfate or chemicals. This keeps hands clean and prevents dryness without any harmful effects associated with chemical-based antibacterial handwash and soaps.
