Our Best Hand and Cuticle Care Tips

Your hands are one of the first things people notice. We express ourselves and communicate with them. They also are quick to show the signs of aging. It’s only fitting that we take care of them the way we would the skin on the rest of our bodies. Today we're sharing our favorite tips to help you get the best looking hands possible.

Hydration is essential.

  • Yes, we all know that drinking water is important to our overall health. Did you know that it is essential to healthy hands as well?
  • Water hydrates the nails, hair, and skin. If your nails seem brittle and break easily, very often dehydration is to blame.
  • Be sure to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.
  • In addition to consuming water, the way we wash our hands matters. Did you know that water that is too hot will wreak havoc on the skin? Wash hands in warm - not hot - water.  

Don't neglect your cuticles.

Seed Soft Balm perfect for dry hands

  • Cuticles are often overlooked, don’t you think? We use hand cream to help out our dry skin and we trim and file our nails, but so many of us neglect the cuticles.
  • Our cuticles actually are very important. They prevent microorganisms such as bacteria from getting into the nail bed, acting as a seal. In fact, your cuticles serve as an important line of defense against infection. When cuticles are dry, ragged or torn, infection is more likely.
  • You do not need to buy pricey cuticle care treatments in order to pamper them. Our new Soft Balm is the ideal treatment for the cuticles. In fact, this multitasking skin care balm pampers both the nails and cuticles. Be sure to massage it right into your nails and cuticles before you go to the next step.

Use hand cream daily.

Seed Healthy Extra Moisturizing Hand Cream

  • Nourish, nourish, nourish! Your hands are quick to show the signs of aging, so it’s important to pamper them.
  • Never be without your Seed Extra Moisturizing Hand Cream. Apply it morning and night and after washing your hands. It’s only fitting that your hand cream should be one of your BFFs!
  • Our exclusive, award-winning formula (did we mention it is affordable?) is fortified with essential fatty acids, protective antioxidants and seed nutrients.
  • Lightweight, yet rich formula is fast absorbing and never greasy or sticky.
  • Take it with you everywhere you go! Our portable cream is TSA compliant, so take it with you while you travel. Keep it by your sink, on your bedside table, anywhere that will help you remember to reapply.

Seed Lip Balms and Lip Oils deliver beautiful soft lips
Seed Tips: How to Get Beautiful, Soft Lips

November 05, 2019

Are petrolatum-based balms the key to soft lips?

What is the first thing most people reach for when their lips are feeling dry? If you answered the traditional balm for chapped lips sold at the drugstore, you're right. Unfortunately, a crude oil-derived balm is not the best choice.

It's a common misconception that these balms help deliver moisture to the lips. 

Here's what Dr. Mauro C. Rumita, who specializes in esthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery says on the subject: "Contrary to what most people believe, [some] don't hydrate the lips. Instead, they seal moisture out, so lips can't absorb it."

 

Do you need a physical barrier like a balm can provide? Yes, in certain situations. If you are outdoors a lot and exposed to the elements, it would be best to consider a natural balm to give your lips a layer of protection from Mother Nature. While a balm does not deliver moisture into the lips, it does protect.

Our plant based Seed Soft Balm protects without the most common ingredient found in lip balm: petrolatum. Not familiar with petrolatum? Here is a link to more information from the Skin Deep Database. It includes petrolatum's common synonyms, including "mineral grease." I don't know about you, but I don't want that on my lips.

Can essential oils help relieve stress and feelings of anxiety?
Can essential oils help relieve stress and feelings of anxiety?

October 29, 2019

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, occasional anxiety is normal. Don't we all feel anxious around the holidays, for example? Children often feel anxious at the beginning of the new school year or the night before a big test. It's normal. I think any one of us can relate to that feeling.

But, then there are times when anxiety is more than a fleeting feeling. We're friends here. I've been sharing with you here on the Seed blog for several years. I've talked about everything from acne break outs to thoughts on skin aging. I think sometimes that it is therapeutic to write things down. If anything, I hope that sharing can help others.
