Seed Year in Review: A Look Back at Our 9th Year

2018 was a big year here at Seed. We celebrated our 9th (NINTH!) year, added even more precious ingredients to our natural face and body care lineup, offered new packaging, revamped our website for an even more seamless shopping experience, started offering limited edition scents, and launched Soft Balm. We thank you for being part of our 2018 and look forward to celebrating 2019 -- our tenth year!

Let's take a look at some of our 9 favorite blog posts, why don't we?

1. The skin care benefits of hyaluronic acid

If you were to chat with your favorite esthetician or dermatologist about their favorite ingredient to combat dry skin, they will likely say that it is hyaluronic acid. In this blog post, we are sharing the many benefits of hyaluronic acid (which isn't actually an acid in a traditional sense).

2. 10 ingredients you need to be using now

Can we let you in on a secret? There are 10 ingredients we swear by for healthy and glowing skin. What ingredients do we consider skin care must haves in your beauty arsenal? Read on for the ten best skin care ingredients.

Your skin is itchy. No matter how much your moisturize, it still is dry and irritated. What is causing this concern? It may just be your water. Seed explains how the water you bathe with may be the cause of your skin troubles.

4. How does diet affect the skin?

You are what you eat. When it comes to skin health, the foods you consume may play a role in the appearance of your skin. In this blog post about nutrition and the skin, we take a look at the facts and myths about diet and complexion.

5. Vitamin C: Why Your Skin Needs It

In this top skin care blog post, we are sharing all of the amazing benefits your skin will see after using products containing Vitamin C. From skin brightening to improved texture and clarity, it's no wonder we love this antioxidant so much!

7. Winter Skin Care Tips

We all know that winter's harsh elements can wreak havoc on your skin. Chapped lips and dryness are common skin care woes this time of year, so we compiled our favorite winter skin care best practices for you.

8. Best skin care tips for oily and acne prone skin

Many of you have been seeking ways to help prevent acne breakouts and how to minimize oily skin. In this blog post, we share common myths about acne (no, your face is not dirty) and share ways to help care for oily and acne prone skin.

9. Is alcohol bad for your skin?

We tackled a common skin care myth - that alcohol is bad for the skin. While many people believe that alcohol should be avoided because of skin dryness, this is a popular myth. Many alcohols are actually skin emollients, offering skin softening benefits. Some alcohols do cause dryness and irritation, though, so we share everything you need to know about skin care products and alcohol in our popular blog post.

 

As we say goodbye to 2018, we want to wish you a Happy New Year and share our sincere wishes for much health and happiness in 2019.

5 Ways the Sun Impacts the Skin
5 Ways the Sun Impacts the Skin

June 23, 2020

Summer is officially here! After a long, very unusual spring, it is nice to get outside and relax in the summer sun.

I love the feeling of soaking up the rays, but sun smarts are essential for your skin.

The sun's UV rays can greatly impact the condition of the skin. While sitting with our faces toward the sun makes us feel so good, it is important to remember that we have to be vigilant about our sun care.

Natural Sunburn Relief Tips from Seed
Natural Sunburn Relief Tips from Seed

June 11, 2020

My 25 year background in skin care has shown me just how important protecting our skin from UVA and UVB rays truly is. I practice what I preach. I wear sunscreen. I moisturize. I remove my makeup at night.

I am human, though, and I make mistakes. Yesterday was one of those days. It was unusually hot here. I finished up my work after lunch and noticed that the outside temperature was 96 degrees. I was skimming the pool and made sure to put on more sunscreen before jumping in.

I was so comfortable just floating on my raft. Floating around just relaxing felt so good! I planned to be in the water for about an hour when my 14 year old jumped in. We had a blast playing baseball with a beach ball and pool noodle, making a whirlpool, and playing games. If you have a teenager, you will understand what a treat it is to enjoy one on one time just having fun with that child who normally would rather be doing something else. This extra time together during the pandemic has been a gift, because there is much more family time. We had so much fun — and before I knew it, I had been in the water for nearly three hours.

I was careful to reapply my sunscreen everywhere — but I neglected my back. And boy did I learn my lesson. I now have a blistering sunburn on about 40% of my back and it is incredibly painful. In addition to being concerned about the potential for lasting damage and cellular changes done to my skin, I am finding it hard to get comfortable. This was preventable, though.

I cannot change yesterday’s mistake, but I can help alleviate the pain and I thought I would share how you can, too, should you finding yourself in need of some sunburn relief.
