The Monthly Roundup: What's trending in industry news?

August 02, 2016

It's the beginning of a new month (August already?) and I am looking back at trending stories of interest on the subjects of beauty, skin care, health and wellness, aromatherapy, and more.

Seed August Roundup

Let's take a look at a few topics creating an industry buzz, why don't we?

  • The San Francisco Chronicle recently published a piece on the many benefits of lemon-scented essential oils, more specifically Lemongrass and Lemon Balm. We are thrilled to see this, as we already offer products with Lemongrass, and VERY shortly, there will be something new coming your way with Lemon Balm. Among the benefits discussed: helping to ease digestive woes, anxiety, sleep issues, sore throats, and more.
  • Are you using a facial toner? If not, you should be! This was a skin care topic on the TODAY show website. In fact, New York dermatologist Dr. Hadley King says that the "secret weapon to healthy skin" is toner. Why? Despite it being an often overlooked step in one's facial care routine, the benefits of using a toner include balancing skin pH, helping to reduce the appearance of pores, adding hydration, and leaving skin looking and feeling refreshed. Do you have a favorite toner? It's something we'll soon be talking more about here at Seed Body Care.
  • CNN reports on a new tech trend: mindfulness apps such as Topdeck Move and Buddhify. We all know that being more mindful is a good thing. It helps you be more present in the moment and may help you feel a greater sense of inner peace. There are new mobile apps that you can download to help you feel more mindful. How do they work? If you feel you need a "time out" to feel a bit more zen,  the apps offer everything from daily meditation to journaling activities, along with soothing music and calming voices. Have you used a mindfulness app? What did you think of it?

5 Skin Care & Beauty Resolutions to Keep in 2019
5 Skin Care & Beauty Resolutions to Keep in 2019

January 07, 2019

Can you believe it is already the first full week of 2019? Me either!

I don't particularly care for New Year's Resolutions.  Quite frankly, I believe in living each day one day at a time. I also believe that instead of trying to fix what we perceive as being flaws, we should resolve to treat ourselves more kindly. I do have some skin care and beauty resolutions that I would like to share with you, though.

 

1. Resolve to wash your face every single night before bed -- no exceptions.

  • Dermatologists recommend removing makeup each night for several reasons.  First of all, if you do not remove your makeup, your pores will not have a chance to "breathe".

  • Your pores will become clogged with the ingredients in your makeup, no matter how natural it may be.  The sebum will become trapped in your pores and you're risking a breakout.  Leaving on eye makeup can cause other issues, such as redness, irritation, and even infection.

  • Environmental contaminants also lurk on the skin, so a gentle cleansing is in order.

  • You also may begin to look older if you do not remove your makeup at night.  Why?  Your skin cells regenerate at night at a faster rate than daytime.  If your skin cannot breathe because of makeup left behind, the cell regeneration process won't be effective, making your skin look older over time.

  • Choose a gentle cleanser such as Seed Advanced Botanicals Daily Facial Cleanser.
