These days, as more and more people continue to embrace healthier lifestyles, so have they become more conscious and careful about choosing products with natural ingredients. Two of the most popular destinations for these kinds of products, specifically for the skin, are UK’s The Body Shop and the Philippines’ very own Human Nature, which are currently concentrating on natural oils as potent ingredients for beauty.
Tea tree-infused BB
First used by Australian
Aborigines, tea tree oil has been known for centuries for its natural antibacterial and skin healing properties. The ingredient is the star of The Body Shop’s complete line of facial skincare products whose tea tree oil is sourced from the foothills of Mount Kenya through Community Fair Trade.
The line is comprised of facial wash, primer and pure tea tree oil, among others, with the newest addition of the Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream. Packed with the anti-bacterial properties of the oil, this new tinted moisturizer not only hide blemishes but heals them at the same time. Moreover, its multiple benefits of moisturizing, soothing and coverage can simplify daily facial routines.
The Body Shop’s Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream comes in two universal shades, 01 Light and 02 Medium, that blend seamlessly into skin.
Scientific studies show that nine of 10 women develop stretch marks after giving birth, while seven out of 10 do so from growth spurts, as well as weight loss during puberty.
While stretch marks are reminders of important milestones, they are still unsightly blemishes on the skin. To lessen the appearance of these imperfections, rosehip oil is found to be effective, and is now the active ingredient of Human Nature’s newest product.
The latest addition to its Prestige Care line, the premium grade oil is rich in vitamins and essential fatty acids that help improves skin elasticity; assist in skin regeneration; and reduce uneven pigmentation bridging skin recovery to radiant rebirth.
To boost the properties of rosehip oil, Vitamin A and Beta Carotene are infused to improve the turnover of skin cells; 80 percent fatty acids (Omega 3, 6, 9) to assist in regenerating and rebuilding the skin; and Vitamin C to help brighten the appearance of the skin.
Rosehip oil is scientifically proven to reduce the appearance of not just stretch marks but also other blemishes like acne marks, varicose veins, age spots and post-surgery scars.
