Plant Ingredients Organic Skincare
In the LE PURE Skincare Blog we explore the plant ingredients of organic skincare. The medicinal plants we use in the LE PURE products have been used for thousands of years. Their beneficial actions for the skin have been studied extensively over the centuries.
We want to highlight their origin, where they are currently grown and their use for health and skincare over the years. The complexity of these medicinal plants is one of the biggest wonders of this planet and using them in our products brings their magic to the skin.
Antiaging Face Massage
Antiaging Face Massage is an ancient beauty practice. Cupping, gua sha and kansa are all facial massage tools that have been used for centuries in many cultures. Together with face yoga, they have become popular in the past years as people are searching for natural rejuvenation techniques.
Their consistent application together with the ultra-nutritive LE PURE products yields surprising results. The practice of facial massage is also a way to reconnect with yourself and your body. Touching your skin brings your awareness to the physical body and its needs.
Facial massage offers many advantages, such as enhancing cell regeneration, boosting skin flexibility, and reducing the visibility of scars, as well as fine lines and wrinkles. It also helps firm the areas around the chin, neck, jawline, and décolleté, while diminishing puffiness and regulating sebum production.
Furthermore, facial massage aids in optimizing the delivery of nutrients encourages the creation of new connective tissues and blood vessels, and improves circulation of oxygen-enriched blood. Additionally, it fortifies the skin and its connective tissues and activates the cells that produce collagen.
The LE PURE skincare blog also shares skin advice for different situations and seasons. Adapting one’s skincare routine according to the changing seasons is crucial for maintaining the health and vitality of the skin. Each season brings with it unique environmental conditions that can have varied effects on the skin.
For instance, the cold and dry air of winter can strip the skin of its natural moisture, leading to dryness, irritation, and flakiness. In contrast, the summer season can bring about increased humidity and exposure to intense sunlight, which might result in excess oil production, acne, and potential sun damage.
By adjusting the skincare routine to address these seasonal variations, one can provide the skin with the necessary protection and nourishment it needs to stay balanced and healthy.
In spring and autumn, the transitional weather can also have distinct impacts on the skin. During spring, as the climate starts to warm up and there’s more pollen in the air, some individuals may experience increased sensitivity or allergies, necessitating gentler, soothing skincare products.
The summer season exposes the skin to UV radiation, requiring healthy, skin-beneficial sun protection as well as skin renewal rituals to prevent the formation of excess keratin and hyperpigmentation.
Autumn, on the other hand, might call for more hydrating and reparative products to help the skin recover from summer sun exposure and prepare it for the harsher winter conditions ahead. Tailoring the skincare routine to the specific needs of each season ensures that the skin is not only protected but also has the opportunity to thrive and remain resilient, regardless of external conditions.
