GOODBYE PUFFY EYE, HELLO ORGANIC SOLUTION

One of the most common questions I get as a skincare professional, “what do you have for the eye area”?

Which is exactly why I compounded an Ayurvedic based Eye and Face Oil recently featured in British Vogue’s 2018 November issue as a preferred skincare item on ‘Vogues Beauty Checklist’. This miracle potion is made from succulent Ayurvedic herbal extracts, such as Gotukola, known as the ‘fountain of life’ in Chinese Legend. This ingredient will stimulate blood flow bringing beneficial nutrients to the skin, combating those pesky under eye circles. Ashwagandha, for brightening and smoothing fine lines, Sesame and Carrotseed for powerful antioxidant and and anti-aging effects and natural SPF protection, just to name a few. With regular use of this oil, one may appear to look and feel fresh and rested. When you look good, you just feel good!

Other treatments outside of a professional skincare routine are as follows:

Ayurvedically speaking, when the eyes are puffy, tired looking and accompanied with dark circles, your Vata is aggravated. Meaning, the nervous system is being put to good use and it just might be time for a shavasana, meaning rest. Whether that’s prayer, yin yoga etc. a preferred mediation may be of extreme help in achieving a more restful appearance as time allows.

Also, never underestimate the importance of a good multivitamin, fish oil pills, probiotics and of course, LOTS of water!

WHAT WE ALL NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SILICA

A light manual exfoliant can easily boost any given skincare regime. And there is no other powerful player than the wildcrafted plant based, fresh water Silica. When negative ions from the Silica warm to body temperature they bind to the positive charge of toxins and pull these particular toxins from the layers of the skin creating a beautifully detoxified complexion. Silica is strongly linked with healthy youthful skin. It also creates bonds between protein molecules, which are responsible for the skin’s natural ability to retain water and critical for repair and cell renewal. Silica can help to create firmer skin with more elasticity as well as more hydrated skin. It also helps to reduce facial pores, blemishes and wrinkles. Being a strong carrier of oxygen, Silica gives a glow, and increases transport of both nutrients and oxygen to the skin. Look for your skin to start illuminating, and your acne, eczema or psoriasis to start disappearing.

Trisha Watson Organics offers a silica product that contains a powerhouse blend of astringent citrus oils along with the great benefits of ginger oil. Mix silica alone or mix this wondrous Ultimate Bliss skincare silica product in with any cleanser of choice and reap the wonderful benefits of silica in your everyday skincare regime.

 

NATURAL SKINCARE AND THE WONDERS OF WILDCRAFTED CLAY

There are two main types of clay I would like to showcase. One of which is the great kaolin clay and the other would be the infamous bentonite clay and how these wildcrafted wonder are a must have for all skincare regimens.

Clay is one of the most glorious wonders of the world. Kaolin Clay is known to purify and detoxify and can be great for irritated skin and help soothe sensitive skin. First discovered in the rugged mountains of East Asia, it is named after the Kao-ling mountain in China, where the clay was mined for centuries. In recent years, Kaolin clay has become increasingly popular as a natural beauty ingredient. Mostly due to its gentle texture, coupled with powerful absorbing properties. As a fine grained earth material, Kaolin clay can be used by all skin types, including those who have sensitive or dry skin. When it comes to cosmetic uses, Kaolin clay is incredibly versatile. Kaolin clay is also known as a powerful detoxifying agent which helps suck out impurities such as dirt, grime, excess oil and any type of pollutants that are clogging up your pores. So if your skin is in urgent need of a reset or if you are looking for a weekly mask to add to your skincare regime, Trisha Watson Organics offers the Glory Be that spactaularly harnesses all the beautiful benefits that Kaolin Clay has to offer.

Bentonite clay has a very strong negative electrical charge. Since many toxins have a positive charge, clay bonds to them. When it comes in contact with a toxin, heavy metal, chemical, or other impurity, the clay will absorb toxin and release its minerals for the body to use. In addition, Bentonite clay also pulls hydrogen from cells, allowing room for oxygen. This helps with circulation, and overall skin tone and health. A product containing a team of players such as bentonite clay, organic tea tree, tumeric CO2 and Cardamom CO2 can be highly beneficial and life changing. Trisha Watson Organic's 'Rescue Worker' is a great example of a Bentonite clay product perfectly and diligently made for optimal skin benefits.

 

 

ALPHA HYDROXY ACIDS AND WHY THEY ARE A MUST FOR EVERY SKINCARE REGIME

Let's talk one of my favorite Acids! AHA, also known as Alpha Hydroxy Acid. AHA has been grabbing my attention, sparking my interest for many years. During an experience I had of working in a large chain department store is when I discovered this wonderful bouquet of amazing acids. This was a time when natural and organic skincare was still very much uncharted territory to such a mega cooperation. Although, natural makings were very few and far between, I yearned for natural ingredients and was so extremely pleased to find AHA's as one of very few natural makings in a makeup and skincare line on the cosmetic sales floor. Since then, I have researched profusely before coming to know and love the wonderful world of AHA's.

An alpha hydroxy serum such as Trisha Watson Organic's 'Alpha Glow' can serve as a resurfacer as well as a light moisturizer. The acids that make up the AHA formulations at Trisha Watson Organics are Formulated with anti aging and anti acne in mind. Loaded with potent natural glycolic/citric acids in a soothing organic aloe base, this product contains an AHA blend of malic acid, from apples, tartaric acid from grapes, citric acid from citrus fruit, glycolic acid from cane sugar, lactic acid produced for beet sugar.

AHA brings amazing benefits to mostly all skin types! Whether the concern may be mature skin, rough, bumpy, troubled skin in need of rebalancing or age spots, AHA’s can help encourage skin to look it’s very best. As one of natures best natural retexturing superstars, AHA's have been known to refine and brighten, leaving skin feeling soft, supple and revived.

 

SKINCARE AND AYURVEDA WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

As a long time yoga practitioner, I have come to strongly believe in the healing and helpful powers of Ayurvedic practices. I am so happy with the results Ayurvedic practices have had on my myself and my family, that there is no question why the Trisha Watson Organics skincare line houses a multitude of skin loving ancient herbs pertaining to the Ayurvedic way of life. 

Ayurveda is considered as the sister science if yoga and one of the oldest of the traditional systems of medicine accepted worldwide. The best part about Ayurvedic remedies is that they do not harm your skin in any way and can be used regularly without having to worry about any side effects.

An oil based natural miracle, such as the Trisha Watson Organics, Eye and Face Oil, packed with purity and potency is infused with very beneficial Ayervedic herbs such as ashwagandha to protect skin from free radical damage and slow down the aging process and gotu kola for toning and tightening. Also included are organic essential oils and CO2 oils essential for age prevention and environmental discretion. Important factors of an Ayurvedic formulation includes emollients that trap moisture, antioxidants, essential fatty acids, and vitamin E. These promote formation of collagen and elastin to tighten the skin and reduce fine lines around the eyes.

Beneficial skincare herbs are a wonderful place to start as you begin your journey in the research for that Ayurvedic, flawless complexion. Most of all eventually, you will find that, Ayurveda principals of the three pillars of true beauty are, outer beauty, inner beauty and lasting beauty. This point is simple. Health and beauty are much more than what we see on the outside, they depend largely on what is happening on the inside as well, physically and emotionally. The beauty laws of Ayurveda will be quick to point out that beauty is more than skin deep. This knowledge applied correctly is transformative.

 

 

POWER OF FLOWERS IN ORGANIC SKINCARE

Skin care containing simple floral extracts contain a multitude of  skin benefits. Used in skin care for thousands of years, a floral blend such as Flower Girl Facial water is perfect for dry, aging, sensitized skin. Also, look for products rich in rose, lavender and hibiscus, this will create a true botanical skin ally. High quality rose waters, are top for enhancing skin health and beauty is also of upmost importance in a good skincare regime. Aromatic rose water rejuvenates, hydrates, softens, calms redness and also emotional feelings of irritation. Organic rose otto is another great player containing a complex of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Rose essential oil has excellent emollient properties for moisturizing dry skin and also offers antiseptic and astringent properties to treat acne, as well as anti-inflammatory properties that help treat redness. Lavender essential is also a great player in the game, this oil reins supreme for maturing skin and also absorbs deep into tissues to moisturize the skin wonderfully allowing dryness to be easily reduced creating a smooth complexion. All of this in a bouquet that houses an intoxicating aroma known for easing stress and balancing mood.

 

MANUFACTURING BOTANICAL OILS AT HOME

There is no question that herbal oils are quite expansive. The great news is, they are simple to make yourself and can be highly effective which is why I have used herbal oils for years around our household and in the skincare line for the rest of you to enjoy. 

The go-to products containing infused oils from our farm, would be the Flower Girl Hydration Water and the Home Grown Facial Water, Nature Balm and so many more to come as the family and I work diligently in creating a farm fresh skincare haven. 

Begin by using fresh herbs, berries, roots, spices or whatever you would like to infuse your oil with. These botanicals can be harvested from around your household or purchase dry organic herbs from a reputable source. Pack a large jar with your chosen botanical. Choose your favorite monounsaturated or polyunsaturated oil best suited for the why you will be using the newly infused oil for. For acne remedies, Hazelnut oil is beneficial and astringent. For soothing dry skin, Avocado oil or Olive oil can be of help. Pour your oil over the botanical, filling the jar completely making sure that the botanical is fully submerged in the oil. Find a lid and close tightly.

Place in a sunny spot, I like window sill because the herbal oils make such a neat earthy type decor and an excellent conversation piece in the skincare treatment room outside the apothecary kitchen in the lower level of our home. Let this sit for several weeks. Feel free to lightly shake the jar every so often, moving the substance around inside the jar. 

When it comes time to strain, I like to use cheesecloth although any strainer will do. By holding the cheesecloth tightly over the opening of the jar or securing with a rubber band, you will be able to pour to infused oil out of the jar in to a fresh clean jar. 

Repack another clean jar with your new infused oil full of the same botanical. Add the newly infused oil, plus additional oil to cover once again. Find your favorite spot in the sun and let sit once again. After several weeks, strain though cheesecloth into a clean jar, label and store. You oils is ready to be used. 

To ensure the shelf life of theoil, add rosemary, vitamin e, or grapefruit seed oil. These additives will help the carrier oil of your concoction to remain stable and will help to avoid oxidization. Enjoy!!

ACNE REMEDY DIY

His name was Captan James Cook, a famous explorer who brought us the ever so important herb, Tea Tree, to the attention of the world. After going ashore, his crew made tea out of the shrubby tree. Their later findings reported that the native people of the land, the aborigines, used leaves of this tree as an antiseptic for insect bites, cuts, wounds and much more. Eventually the herb went forgotten until World War II. This era brought new attention and a new love for this wonderful medicinal herb. They also found the antiseptic properties of Tea Tree very profound and used it regularly for insect bites and wound healing. This herb is now known to the world as for its antiseptic and anti fungal properties and though it is widely used for healing acne, it is widely used for cute, warts, athletes foot and cold sores. 

When getting your favorite go-to skincare item is for some reason out of reach, Tea Tree is it very easily found in natural food markets and health food stores. For a quick Tea Tree remedy, 

-Combine 4 drops of the essential oil with

-4 tables spoons witch hazel (also easily found in stores) or 4 tablespoons of water.

Apply topically to sebaceous inflammations and experience the soothing complex that Mother Nature has to offer.

ORGANIC PURIFYING SYSTEM FOR ACNE AND OILY SKIN

If you are in the acne struggle, know that I am with you. Earlier in life, I had much less than perfect skin. Needless to say, this became more of a battle on the inside than the out. A contributing factor in launching an organic line was to have the solutions at my fingertips for all people struggling with a less than a perfect complexion. Here, I will share an effective regime to soothe inflammation and calm oily, troubled skin. 

Please note, the one element of education that I truly cherish, is the strong knowing that what you put inside your body, directly shows on the outside. Long term solutions to skincare issues begin in with a proper diet. Educating yourself on unclean ingredients you consume can be one of the best gifts one can give to themselves in regards to self care. 

 

CLEANSE 

Cleanser is an important step in the skincare regime. Cleansing alone has been known as a large part in skin health and is commonly overlooked. In the application process, please take a moment to massage in upward motions, working the product well into the skin. This will insure antioxidants are deposited efficiently, allowing them to work to their fullest capability. 

CLEANSING STEP 1

Start with NATURAL WONDER pre-cleansing cream. Oil bonds with oil, so this whipped oil cleanser deconstructs layers of excess oil, waterproof make-up, environmental pollutants and residual product buildup on skin. Simply massage cream cleanser over skin, add water to emulsify then rinse.

CLEANSING STEP 2

Follow with BEYOND GRATEFUL activated charcoal cleansing system. Add cleanser to skin, massage in upward circular motions, wet hands and repeat working antioxidants into the skin paying attention to areas of congestion and rinse. 

EVERY 2-3 DAYS

Blend ULTIMATE BLISS with BEYOND GRATEFUL for a purifying power cleanse. This powder is made up of astringent citrus oils and antioxidant rich silica for removal of excess dead skin cells that may be laying on the skins surface waiting to combine with oil to clog pores.

STEP 3

Blend a tablespoon of RESCUE WORKER with preferred liquid element, enough needed to make a paste. I prefer apple cider vinegar with RESUCE WORKER when I am experiencing an occasional breakout. Some clients like to use, yogurt, hazelnut oil, water other prefer their go-to cleanser or facial water. This  powder is made of a anti acne oils infused into bentonite clay, a substance mined directly from the earth as a superfood for the skin and this product has strong potential to be a powerful player in reducing inflammation and soothing troubled skin. This masque makes an excellent spot treatment as well!

STEP 4

Spritz HOME GROWN facial water over entire face and neck. This will add in nutrients such a Witch Hazel, Cardamom, Tea Tree and Juniper Berry to assist in acne healing and prevention. 

STEP 5

Follow with APLHA GLOW serum. This serum is rich in alpha hydroxy acids turmeric and tea tree, some well known elements in treating acne. For oily skin, this can be the final step, no moisturizer needed. This serum is a correction serum and will make a large impact in the effort to decrease unwanted blemishes and acne scarring. 

STEP 6

Follow with PLANTED moisturizer. This creamy moisturizer is highly beneficial for acne accompanied, dry skin. Apply a pea-sized amount on the face, massaging in upward circular motions.

THE ULTIMATE NATURAL SKINCARE REGIMEN

Pre-cleansing products are generally oil based and designed to be used before your regular cleanser. All day long our skin secretes sebum (oil). This substance stays in the surface layer of the skin picking up any grime that may come along during our daily activities. Oil bonds with oil, so this whipped oil cleansing system deconstructs layers of excess oil, waterproof make-up, environmental pollutants and residual product buildup on skin. This is when the actives in your chosen cleanser, such as Beyond Grateful activated charcoal cleanser, is able to clean deeper and more effectively, encouraging clear, healthy skin. Achieve cleaner, healthier-looking skin with a double cleanse regimen that begins with a pre cleansing cream.

After your pre cleanser has been removed, apply your favorite active cleanser to the skin. This cleanser has the ability to be more active and ready to combat problem skin. Take time to really massage your cleanser into the skin, making movements in upward circular motions.

Facial Water aka Toners, will asist in the balancing of the delicate pH levels of the skin, this is necessary prior to applying the following steps to your skincare regime. Facial waters also calm the skin. This provides a safe and effective base for serums, facial oils and moisturizers, ensuring better absorbtion and assisting those particular items as they play a part in an impeccable skincare routine.

4) SERUM

Serums are know for the ability to correct. Unlike moisturizers, serums can treat everything from wrinkles and sagging to hyperpigmentation and scarring. Serums are generally much lighter in weight than moisturisers are, meaning they can penetrate much deeper. Serums contain highly concentrated ingredients that are infinitely more effective at treating particular concerns. 

5) MOISTURIZERS

Moisturizers are heavier than serums and are known to hydrate the epidermis, which is the top layer of the skin. Moisturizers contain many beneficial ingredients and contain specific makings to help lock in moisture. Freshly moisturized skin contains a healthy sheen, and some moisturizers are pre tinted and extremely affective in balancing out skin tone and texture.

THE TALE OF THE WOODEN TABLE

As a little girl growing up, my first memory pertaining to my passion for skincare is still one of my fondest childhood memories of sitting, cozied up, under the wooden farm table in our family kitchen as my grandmother would sweetly hand me skincare samples from above the table. This is where my creativity grew. That loving table happily hosted events where my mother would invite women from our small town to gather and experience the joy of skincare together. I wasn't school age yet, so I had to be 4 or younger. Years later, that very table was passed down to me now holding warm, comfortable space for my own children still to this day. Often times I wonder if maybe one of my own kids is exploring the creation of a dream from the very depths of that wonderful table. 

Thank you for allowing me to share my passion with you! Trisha
