Would you deliberately use a peel that causes your face to get really hot and red? It sounds crazy, but the Blueberry Detox Peel from Eminence Organics does just that and the result is skin that is fresh, glowing and younger looking!
HOT AND SPICY
This month we are focused on cleansing our insides with green smoothies, but now let’s take a look at how we can detox the outside as well. The Blueberry Detox Firming Peel is a natural exfoliating peel and, like many peels, it deep cleans pores and tones the skin. The highlight of this peel is the paprika, which is a naturally hot spice that definitely heats up your skin! Don’t worry; this is exactly the reaction that you want! Like exercising, the heat from paprika increases circulation to the skin, bringing fresh blood to the skin’s surface to give your skin that radiant glow. Increased blood flow also increases oxygen intake of the skin cells, which means that products applied after the peel will be absorbed better.
DO YOU DARE?
So, would you or wouldn’t you try this facial? We think that the temporary heat and redness is worth it and if you dare try it, this Detox Facial may just become your new fresh-faced beauty obsession!

We’ve always hoped to have a place where we could provide some education and our view on health, fitness, skincare, and beauty. So today, we thought we’d share some information on Vitamin C.
Vitamin C is often talked about as the secret to looking younger. Even Dr. Oz has endorsed Vitamin C as an anti-ager taking a decade off of your skin. It turns out that we have Vitamin C naturally in our skin, but as we age, the amount of Vitamin C begins to decline, which results in wrinkles, fine lines and saggy skin. Therefore, to keep your youthful appearance, daily application of Vitamin C is recommended.
Used topically, Vitamin C can help to rebuild collagen and repair cells that have been damaged by the sun. It was once considered a challenge to harness vitamin C into an effective topical solution, since it oxidizes so quickly. Unless protected, Vitamin C rapidly degrades and loses its antioxidant ability as soon as it’s exposed to oxygen. However, there have been huge advances in harnessing Vitamin C into an effective and gentle formulation and many effective Vitamin C serums are now available.
We’re excited to try the newly released Citrus & Kale Potent C+E serum by Eminence Organics, which has 16% activity of vitamin C. Studies have shown it to reduce 47% of free radical damage in just 3 hours!
Some products are great for repairing the skin and ideal to put on your skin at night, when you are resting. However, this serum provides the extra protection your skin needs during the day as you are exposed to light and toxins in the environment.
Since this serum has such a high absorbency rate, it’s best to drop it directly on your face instead of into your hands. We put 4 drops directly onto our face and rub it in. Wait about 20-30 sec for the serum to absorb and then apply your favorite SPF moisturizer. Let the SPF moisturizer absorb and then apply your makeup as usual.
