Today the word BIO is in vogue and more and more products for both food and care are joining this trend.

But what benefits does the use of more natural and organic products really bring to our bodies?

Taking care of your skin is essential. After all, it is the largest organ in the body.

The skin has the ability to easily absorb about 60% of everything applied to it—including chemicals.


It’s like a sponge so much of what you put on it will pass into the bloodstream through this absorption process.

Choosing organically sourced skincare products is a natural and much less invasive way to make your skin look and feel radiant than chemical peels or surgery. If you don't get the result you desire from them, the other two options are always still on the table.

Organic and natural products work with your skin to enhance its regenerative and healing properties. These products are free of harmful chemicals, which means that it is easier to maintain a healthier skin with organic products.

But now there's the question; “are organic products 100% natural?”

For something to be labeled organic, products must be grown without insecticides, pesticides, or other chemicals.

Examining organic products from the benefits they provide. They also must provide value for your skin and body in order to justify the often higher prices. Organic vegetables and fruits are often smaller than those fed chemicals and that's good. But it takes more of them to make the same volume of product so that affects the price.

In the case of My Skin's Friend, not only do we use only organic ingredients, we actually make many of our ingredients from scratch starting with fresh, whole, organic foods from a local organic market. It is both time and labor intensive. That's why they are so effective. We make them at 100% full strength instead of watering them down as most products are. You pay more initially but you use way less so in reality, you get a better product for the same as the cheaper product and they are much better for you than the chemical based brands.

Increase health and well-being

Eating a healthy diet based on organic food helps keep the body free of chemical fertilizers and pesticides that can affect our overall health. It is simply logical that as you eat more organically that your body is getting less poisons and therefore can use it's energy to build and maintain healthy cells instead of trying to deal with the poisons in the foods.

Antioxidant powers

Organic food is rich in nutrients and antioxidants because the products retain many more properties than conventional processed foods. In this way, consuming organic ingredients has a positive impact on health. 

It's the same with My Skin's Friend organic skin and hair products too. We use our own, proprietary bio-extraction method to capture the natural nutrients--both known and unknown--from the whole foods we use. Your cells recognize these naturally occurring nutrients and use them for cell repair and replication.

Heart protectors

Grazing animals outdoors increases the levels of linoleic acid, a healthy fatty acid that protects the cardiovascular system, thus helping improve heart health by lowering the risk of strokes, heart attacks, or high blood pressure.

They collaborate with a happy planet

Healthy eating and the consumption of organic ingredients are helpful in creating a more pollution-free environment. Organic production procedures respect the environment, local communities, vegetation, and animal life.

When we make our organic products, our "waste" products are actually good for the planet. We want every step in our company's process to be earth positive.

Organic foods and skin products unburden the immune system

A large, red, juicy apple may be very attractive to the eye; but these types of ingredients - designed to be larger and more seductive - have been shown to lower the body's natural defenses, and that's not all: their consumption is also related to certain sexual dysfunctions, allergies, and sudden mortality.

What should you look for when looking for an organic product for your skin?

There is no doubt that organic products have taken a very important place in the beauty market. In recent years their offer has been significantly diversified so that every day we find more creams, hair products, and even makeup made based on natural ingredients.

So, if you are thinking of replacing your usual beauty products with organic ones or you are just feeling curious to try them, then we are going to give you some tips.

It is always advisable when buying a skincare product to read its label to find out what ingredients it contains so that you know what you are putting on your skin.

Many skincare products contain a variety of toxins and chemicals, including sodium lauryl sulfate, which has been linked to health problems such as contact dermatitis, kidney damage, and liver abnormalities.

A conventional beauty product contains not just one or two chemicals, but hundreds. All of that is soaking into the skin and going into the bloodstream and then they can show up in every organ.

Yes, sunshine is also essentail for robust health

We are bombarded with scary articles about the dangers of sun exposure. Yes, like many things, too much of it can be harmful but it has gotten to the point where people avoid any sun exposure as if it was another version of the COVID 19 virus and that is simply an unhealthy belief.

We are facing a lot of bone weakening problems today because we feel frightened to go to the sun. Our beauty is very important for us but just as important is vitamin D-3 to our bones which we can get from just a 15 minute sunbath.

Because almost every sunscreen on the market contains not just one but multiple dangerous chemicals, we launched My Skins Friend Organic SPF 30.

This organic, mineral based sunscreen will protect you from harmful UV rays and moisturize your skin too.

The main ingredient is micro-sized zinc oxide that lowers skin inflammation, helps prevent acne, and locks in moisture while helping form healthy collagen in the skin. It also contains My Skins' Friend organic, hand filleted aloe vera gel at 100% concentration and a small amount of our sweet potato lotion extract to supply other anti-oxidants. 

Other useful natural ingredients for good skin health

Unrefined vegetable and nut oils contain lipids, triglycerides, sterols, and antioxidants. They replace lipids within the skin's intercellular matrix and help restore skin barrier function. I supposed you could even make your own sunscreen at home but grabbing a bottle of ours is much easier.

Here's a brief list of skin friendly items you may want to try

  • Essential oils reach the deepest layers of the skin where they can hydrate, nourish, and rejuvenate skin cells.
  • Vitamin A hydrates the skin, and scalp, improves the texture of photo-damaged skin, and increases the elasticity of the skin.
  • Vitamin B hydrates hair, skin and nails, and soothes and improves the healing process of dry skin.
  • Vitamin C can be helpful in restoring the smooth surface of aging skin.
  • Vitamin E can enhance the performance of UV blockers while smoothing the skin and hydrating deep into the epidermis.
  • Beneficial herbs and botanicals include aloe vera, lavender oil, and nettle.
  • Organic skincare products, like oils and butter, are also growing in popularity.
  • Some healthy ingredients are avocado oil, hemp oil, jojoba oil, olive oil, and shea butter.
  • Other beneficial ingredients in organic skincare products include grape extract, glycerin, alpha-lipoic acid, kelp extract, and pomegranate extract.

Excellent options for health

Some people turn to natural alternatives to avoid overexposure to chemicals, while others do it mainly to favor the industry that is responsible for helping protect the environment.

Regardless of the reason, what is clear is that organic skincare products are worth the investment in your health and beauty.

In addition to the use of creams, gels, moisturizers, etc., it is advisable to maintain healthy lifestyle habits to enhance health and look good every day.

Final Thoughts

My best recommendation for a good health: Consume organic foods and skin care and hair care products. Your body will respond quickly and positively to the lifting of the chemical burden on it. Remember, when you remove or lessen that chemical burden, your body can then use that energy to repair and rebuild. It is really that simple.

Going organic will protect your health.

You will achieve better results for your skin (by far.)

And you will be actively promoting sustainable agriculture.

It's win-win-win for everyone.

...Organic Sunless Tanner

 

Stopping here first was a good call.

We used to enclose a printed version of this booklet with our tanner but we continually get suggestions and recommendations from the hundreds of customers who love this tanner so we decided to convert it to a more dynamic forum so you always have the latest information for getting the perfect tan.

One you learn these simple secrets, you can keep that sexy, natural looking tan all year long while you're also pampering your skin.

You'll get more than just a tan.

My Skin's Friend Sunless Tanner is on of the very few liposomal tanners on the market. It actually helps moisturize your skin as well as tanning it so it's like getting two products for the price of one.

These simple secrets will guarantee an even, natural looking tan
Getting an even, natural looking tan shouldn't be difficult yet we hear from customers who have tried so many sunless tanners on the market only to be disappointed in the look of their tan. 
We set out to make the best organic tanner on the market and from the emails and customer reviews we get, looks like we've accomplished it.
If you don't get the perfect tan, let us help
Sure, we occasionally get a customer feedback that says they got streaks or some uneven spots but even then, we work with them to help correct those issues and start over. Without exception, the outcome is positive so I urge you to write to us if you experience anything but a perfect tan and let us help.
Getting an even, natural looking tan is definitely possible without covering your body with chemicals, baking in a tanning bed or enduring the funky smell most tanners leave you with.
If you follow these simple steps, you too will be sporting a tan so natural looking that your friends will ask you where you just vacationed!
First things first. 
My Skin's Friend SUnless Tanner

 

Don't rush the process o.k.?

You want a natural looking tan, not a cheap paint job right? Just like getting a real sun tan, it takes a little time and patience but the outcome will be well worth it.
My Skin's Friend doesn't tan you, it causes your body to tan itself. In fact, when you spray it on, you won't see any color because there isn't any in it. That's why it doesn't look fake like a lot of others but there are "secrets" to getting the best, most natural looking tan with it.

Before you spray, make sure your skin is clean and exfoliated.

Use a regular wash cloth, loofah or anything else you might already like to exfoliate with. I discovered this helps speed up the process because it starts with new, fresh skin cells, not the old dead ones. Don't scrub so hard that you cause an abrasion. Just a nice firm scrub.

Exfoliate before using My Skin's Friend sunless tanner
There are two reasons for this.
  1. One, the organic tanner interacts with your skin to create the tanning process so the more fresh, clean skin it can contact (without oils or creams between) the faster, deeper and more even your tan will be.
  2. Secondly, dead skin cells tend to get darker than fresh cells and may cause some spotting so your outcome will be much more even once you properly clean and exfoliate your skin.
 
My Skin's Friend sunless tanner prep

When your done, dry off and go to the next step.

I put plastic grocery store bags on my feet from the ankle down to keep the tops of my feet from getting tan from the falling mist.
    Some customers have told me that they apply a thin layer of cocoa butter or other natural lotion like MSF Sweet Potato, Melon Fresh or Honey & Aloe to theirs.

    They also apply to elbows and knees because those areas tend to get darker faster and the lotion acts to help avoid that.


      O.k. with those bases covered, it's time to apply the spray.

      It is much easier if you have a friend who can spray you but almost all of our customers report they spray it on themselves with little problem. It might take a little practice to perfect it but it's done every day.

      My Skin's Friend organic sunless tanner application

      I apply it to myself most of the time but when I can get my husband to do it, it is easier to maintain a more even coverage.

      VERY IMPORTANT. The main cause of streaks or runs is OVER SPRAYING.

      Because My Skin's Friend sunless tanner is clear (no colorants or staining chemicals), it is hard to tell where you've sprayed.

      For this reason, it is important to plan to cover in a methodical way to make sure you don't over spray and get runs or streaks.

       

       

      1. Do right leg, left leg to thigh front.
      2. Right arm, left arm front and sides.
      3. Abdomen front (pubic bone to under neck unless you want au natural all over tan).
      4. Then back from hairline to butt. Then back of left leg, back of right leg.  

      If you have someone applying the spray to you, have them hold the bottle about a foot from your body and spray evenly from side to side, making sure to get an even coat. Applying too much each time will cause runs and you don't want that or you'll have streaks. Just a very light coat works like magic.

      RUN REPAIR TIP!

      If you see a run or large droplets during or after spraying, don't panic. It can be fixed before the streak shows up.

      Once you've finished your third and final application for that day, simply let the last coat dry a few minutes and then apply an organic lotion to the entire area to blend the overspray into the rest of the area. In almost all cases, this will completely eliminate any spots or streaks and you'll wake up with a very nice, even, natural looking tan.

      Over spray also happens because you will swear you're not getting enough on you but I assure you that you are. We chose the very fine mister pump to make sure you get a very light application each time to prevent runs or streaks.

      When one coat dries (which is very quick and can be accelerated with a blow dryer set to cool), apply the next one until you've sprayed three consecutive coats in one treatment.  I know you won't feel like anything is happening but trust me, it is.

      Once the third coat is dry, you're ready to get dressed. My Skin's Friend tanner won't color hair or clothes so don't worry about having to cover your hair or having it rub off on your clothes or bed linens.

      Cover your whole body or the areas you want tan with that first coat and wait 3 minutes or so for it to dry. One of the things people love about it is that it dries very fast.

      Repeat this process no more than three days straight.

      Once you've done if for three days, STOP and wait for 48 hours for your tan to “mature” and show you the final shade. If you want to be darker, simply continue to apply it as above until you reach your ideal shade. Once that happens, you can usually maintain your tan with a once or twice a week application. Remember, you won't see the final results for 48 hours
      after the final coat.

      That's it! That's all you need to have a cool looking tan. And when people ask where you got your beautiful tan, tell 'em Tahiti!
