Wellness Wednesday: Natural Skin & Hair Tips
It’s time for our monthly link up for Wellness Wednesday and this month we are sharing our Natural Skin & Hair Tips.
You’ve just heard my review of the products from the Gorgeous Woman Skincare Range, so I’d like to welcome back Min, from Write of the Middle, who will be sharing more about the products and also her skincare tips.
Min was my guest back in March and wrote about 12 Tips for Self-Investment in your 50s & Beyond so I thought I would invite her back to tell us more about her new venture with the Gorgeous Woman Product Range.
Tell us a little about the Gorgeous Woman Product Range?
There’s actually three skin care ranges that have been created by WomanOil8 Australia. There’s the Gorgeous Woman Skin Care range which I use. The beautiful nourishing blends are hydrating, anti-aging, and suitable for normal, sensitive, dry, mature skin types.
Then there’s the Gorgeous Girl Skin Care range which again is beautiful nourishing blends of the finest botanical oils that balance and moisturise perfectly. It’s suitable for normal, oily, combination, and acne type skin – from teens years on.
Finally, there’s the ManOil8 Skin Care range especially for men – again made with the finest botanical oil blends which are soothing, calming and hydrating and suitable for all skin types.
What I love about these skin care ranges is that they are 100% Australian made and owned (actually handcrafted locally here in the Redlands).
- They’re never tested on animals and are cruelty free.
- They’re vegan friendly.
- They’re made from pure plant oils – organic, extra-virgin, cold pressed and CO2 extraction. There are absolutely no petrochemicals, synthetic ingredients, parabens or toxic ingredients at all.
- They’re gentle and nourishing, hypoallergenic and pH balanced to support the skin’s acid mantle barrier.
- Only the very best premium oils are used, reputably sourced, organic, cold-pressed and Australian wherever possible, as well as the finest European and international oils on the planet.
Why did you choose to become involved with Gorgeous Woman?
I’d been on the lookout for something extra to take on board in addition to my blog. Something that complimented what my blog and I are all about (seeking balance of mind, body and spirit and prioritising oneself by self-investment).
As women we often neglect ourselves during the child-rearing years and in mid-life I believe it is time to prioritise ourselves and do what we can to feel and be the best version of ourselves as possible so that we can enjoy active and healthy lives for our remaining years.
If we feel good on the inside, it shows on the outside and if we feel good on the outside we will also feel good on the inside. I have focussed a lot (on the blog and in my own life) on feeling good on the inside and with this skin care range I saw an opportunity to help women (including myself, and girls and men!) to feel good on the outside too, which in turn helps with our self-esteem and self-confidence.
I have been very interested in natural plant oils for a long time, so this opportunity caught my attention on many levels. And, as it turns out, I absolutely LOVE the products and use them myself.
My favourite times of day are mornings and evenings when I use the products. They make my skin feel so silky soft, nourished, super hydrated and supple. I can honestly say my skin has never felt so good. It makes it very easy to be passionate about these products when I’ve experienced the benefits of them and love them myself.
What is your favourite Gorgeous Woman product and why?
Oh this is a very hard question to answer because I honestly love all the products I use (Gorgeous Woman skin care range). I think I will have to say the Gorgeous Woman Face Cleanser because from the very moment it is on my skin, I am in heaven.
The gorgeous citrus scent and I feel the beautiful nourishment instantly and it sets me up to enjoy the whole Gorgeous Woman skin care regime – which is quick and easy but oh so luxurious!
What is your top Skin Care Tip
Obviously I am very passionate about the Gorgeous Woman Skin Care range (and its siblings) but for very good reason! Our skin is the largest organ of the body. It protects us from microbes and the elements and helps regulate body temperature. It is also porous and absorbs whatever you put on it.
It makes sense to look after our skin with natural products that contain absolutely no nasty chemicals or toxins. I recommend 100% natural plant-based oils that support and maintain the skin’s acid mantle in protecting the skin from pollutants, UV rays, temperature changes and add moisture to the skin.
The acid mantle is your skin’s protective layer made up of an acidic film that keeps bacteria out of the skin cells. It also helps with elasticity and secretes enzymes that help break down excess sebum (oily secretions) in the skin.
