Twelve Days of Leaping Bunny ran on December 1214 through a Leaping Bunny web link posted through their social media sites. Each promo unveiled something special each day exclusive to Leaping Bunny fans and followers. Vivoderm was featured on December 12 with our travel kit promo and online store discounts.
This week marks the official start of fall. This might make some of you happy and others sad. So as the summer draws to a close, we transition from hot, humid days, to cooler, dry temperatures. Our summer clothing will go to the back of the closet and slowly be replaced with cozy sweaters and boots. And like our clothing, our skincare products should also be rotated to reflect the changing climate and needs.
One of the best transitional skincare ingredients is COCONUT OIL. Many of you may have been using this wonderful oil all summer for light hydration and summer sunning. The unmistakable aroma of coconut embodies the summer experience of relaxation, while the silky texture feels like pure indulgence as it sinks into your skin.
Coconut Oil provides excellent healing and hydration for skin all year round
COCOS NUCIFERA, as the coconut is scientifically known, was believed to have originated in the tropics of the South Pacific, but managed to spread across the globe thanks to its very useful ability to float. Over time and across the oceans, the nut washed ashore to other similar climates, allowing the natives to use the seed, nut and palm for numerous dietary, medicinal and practical purposes. The coconut fruit offers more than just a relaxing experience. As one of nature’s most nourishing fruits, coconut can revitalize skin from the outside and inside.
Used in combination with other rich emollients, coconut oil, provides the perfect base for your skincare needs in cooler weather. Using coconut oil in your diet, helps to strengthen the connective tissues in the skin and keep it pliable and smooth. You can get the beneficial antioxidant properties by using coconut oil in your salad dressing or cooking as wells as drinking coconut water. Both help the skin prevent infection, increase radiance and fight free radicals.
Coconut oil contains mostly fats, which make it ideal for skincare treatments. Acting as an emollient that naturally softens, restores and moisturizes. It also helps protect the skin for the aging effects of free-radicals.
BENEFICAL PROPERTIES OF COCONUT OIL
Forms a protective barrier against moisture-loss and re-hydrates the skin cells
Prevents brittle, dry hair, hydrates the scalp and limits breakage
Helps heal chronic dermatitis and psoriasis – reducing inflammation and itching
Reduces scarring caused by acne or skin eruptions
Eliminates dead skin cells and reduces flaking, improving the quality and appearance of skin
Modern biochemists also consider coconut oil to be an antioxidant due to its stability and resistance to oxidation and free radical formulation. Extra virgin coconut oil is the preferred ingredient in the Vivoderm skincare products for dry to extremely dry skin, such as our INTENSE MOISTURIZER, CHAMOMILE BODY BUTTER AND ANTI AGING EYE CREAM.
As the temperature cools, the humidity drops and pulls more moisture from your skin than in the summer months. Re-hydrating is crucial to keeping your skin soft and plump.
HYDRATE YOUR SKIN
After each bath or shower, be sure to re-hydrate your skin with an all-over body butter or lotion; this will prevent dry flaking and scaling skin. Include a super-rich, facial moisturizer and eye cream to your skin care routine each time you wash your face to reduce wrinkles, dryness and flaking and your skin will glowing in no time.
If your skin still feels oily after washing then it would be best if you add a skin toner in your daily beauty regimen. You might have seen skin toner on the shelves of the beauty and cosmetic supply store but never ever really gave a thought about buying or using it. It can be that you are not sure what exactly a toner does for you. Among all the skin care products traditional toners contains oils and moisturizers that aid in soothing your skin and improving skin texture and tone.
Facial toners help to moisturize and tighten the skin pores. If your toner consists of alcohol you should definitely stay away from it. The best thing for your skin is to use products that contain natural elements such as Green tea. With the help of a toner after cleansing your skin’s pH balance is naturally restored. Toners help to add a layer of protection by helping to close the pores and tightening the cell gaps after cleansing. This lessens the penetration of impurities in your skin. Among all the skin products a toner is extremely essential for your beauty regimen.

Gone are the days when only women were concerned about their beauty. New age men are extremely conscious about their looks and as much troubled about their wrinkles as women. Today’s men are actively involved in skincare. Men are however blessed with a comparatively thicker skin as compared to women. As a result, the appearance of wrinkles in men is not as prominent as
There are many skin issues which have to be answered as early as possible to have good skin. It can be dryness, acne, aging, blemishes and many other linked issues. Skin needs lot of care to keep it soft, supple and radiant. People would love to have good skin and try any product which promises to do so. Most of the times they fall prey to the chemicals and the condition of the skin deteriorate. There are skin treatments for all the related problems with natural products. A well balanced diet and life style also can take of the skin. The most important of all the natural products is water. At least 8 glasses of water has to be consumed in a day to keep the skin hydrated. Make sure that a good portion of the meal has raw vegetable and fruits in it.
Yearning for beautiful soft and supple skin is very common. There are very few people who are blessed with soft, supple and flawless skin. It is just a routine skin care for such people. Majority of the people do suffer from some skin problem or the other. There is constant search for natural skin products to combat most of the common problems like dryness, pimples and acne. The product made of natural ingredients is safe, mild and extremely effective.
Organic beauty products will always stand high over the synthetic topical creams regardless of the advancement in the field of cosmetic industry. The benefits of natural facial skincare can literally go on endlessly. Glossy synthetic products may look irresistible on first sight but you must not be duped by the striking packing and coaxing advertising. Yes, these chemical-based products do produce fleeting results but what if you stop using them? The moment you stop their usage, you get back to exactly where you’d started from! So, what is the idea behind using these synthetic beauty products?
Cosmetic technology has developed by leaps and bounds but there are still strong reasons to believe as to why should a person follow natural skincare. What is the need to waste time and money in selecting the best skincare formulation when the secret to beautiful skin lies in your very own home? People often seek help from natural skincare products when they are fed up of ineffective commercialized products but actually natural skincare should be considered as the first option.
We can actually go endless on the benefits of natural facial skincare. Women, by nature, fall for glossy creams and lotions. They have been falling prey to such harsh mix of chemicals since long. It is only after using and losing from these over-the-counter products that they realize the unworthiness of these so called beauty creams and solutions. No, we do not mean to say that all those creams that the store shelves are teeming with are worthlessness. No, not all are bad but yes many of them are and you may have no clue how badly they can react to the skin.
Cold sores suck. You get that tingle in your lip and you know it’s coming. The dread sets in waiting for that
week of pain and embarrassment that comes with the outbreak.
Having a cold sore is a miserable process, but what are you going to do? Western Medicine insists that there is no cure for Herpes Simplex 1, the virus that causes cold sore outbreaks.
With all due respect to the Western Medicine Community, I disagree. I believe, and this is just my belief, that the body can heal from ANYTHING.
And, for those of you who carry the Herpes virus, there is hope! Your body is an incredible machine that is capable of fighting and healing any malady that comes its way. It’s just a matter of finding the right key to unlock the chemical changes needed for your biology to heal itself.
Over 60% of the population are carriers of Herpes 1, the virus that causes cold sores and 40% are carriers of Herpes 2, the virus that causes genital herpes. When carriers experience outbreaks of either cold sores or genital herpes, they are displaying outer signs of an inner war being waged between the viral infection that has taken up host and the body’s immune system.
Cold sores and genital herpes outbreaks tend to increase in colder weather because your body is using extra energy just to keep your body’s temperature up, dealing with added stressors that accompany the winter holidays, and coping with the increased sugar intake from all those seasonal treats. This leaves your forces weakened, and opens the door for viral troops to break through and break out.
You can fight back. By taking a holistic approach and analyzing the body’s entire system, you can reinforce your Immunity Army’s troops and kill off the foreign invaders once and for all! Here are some recommendations for doing just that:
Boost your immune system by taking Astragalus. Available in pill form or as a tea, this herb increases your natural T-Cell levels. Your T-Cells are like the Navy SEALs of your immune system, providing a highly intelligent, extensively trained front line of defense against any foreign bacteria or viral invaders. Also, increase your levels of Vitamin C and Zinc as these minerals further reinforce your immunity, equipping your T-Cell warriors with armor and ammunition.
Add a 300mg L-lysine supplement to your daily regimen. An essential amino acid, L-lysine affects the virus’ RNA and shuts down its ability to replicate itself in the body. L-lysine won’t kill the existing virus, but it will inhibit the viral army from adding any more troops. Protein-rich foods are good sources of L-lysine.
Watch out for foods high in L- Arginine. This amino acid will betray your Immunity Army by providing support for the foreign forces. Say no to chocolate, almonds and walnuts – all high in L-Arginine, and say yes to foods like soybeans, spinach and lentils which are low in L-Arginine and high in L-lysine. Finding the proper balance of these two amino acids is essential in wiping out the Herpes Simplex viruses.
Liquid Colloidal Silver
Discover the wonders of colloidal silver! Extensively used to treat maladies prior to the creation of antibiotics, colloidal silver is a bacteria killing machine that can be taken internally or applied directly to the sore outbreaks. Once I had a wart that wouldn’t go away. I used colloidal silver on it for two days, it disappeared and I haven’t seen a sign of it since! It is important to note that colloidal silver doesn’t discriminate and it will destroy your good bacteria as well as the bad, so be sure to reinforce your system with probiotics. I recommend taking Acidophilus in pill form because other methods aren’t as strong and you want to be certain you’re getting enough.
Also, the use of topical oils can be used on outbreaks until the virus is defeated. Essential oils such as lavender oil and lemon balm are highly effective in soothing Herpes outbreaks and will work well until your Immunity Army ousts the viral invaders. Simply dab a bit of the oil directly onto your sores using a cotton swab and experience instant relief.
Taking this multi-pronged approach and fighting viral infections from every angle is your Immunity Army’s best bet in conquering foreign invaders. You can triumph over Herpes Simplex viruses, all it takes is a little internal biological warfare. Go. Fight. Win!
Treating your skin with pure natural skin care products is not just a new fad or a trend, but a true and effective response to a world overloaded with chemicals, toxins, and pollution. There is only so much a body can do to purge itself from the unhealthy balance we have all been guilty of contributing to. Natural skincare products have been uniquely designed to restore the skin as well as protect the skin and also make it feel smooth, moist and fantastic. The skin is the body’s largest organ and is the first line of defense against toxins and other harmful substances. It is responsible for fighting infections, keeps your temperature regulated as well as fights off dehydration. Why treat it like a chemical garbage dump?
Using natural skin care products is one of the most popular and easy ways to maintain your healthy glow. Some may prefer surgical procedures to augment the natural look of their skin, but in the end using natural skincare is the most effective form of preventative and anti aging skin care regimes. This is because it is easily affordable and there are no ethical issues to consider that many face when considering plastic or augmentative surgery such as Botox injections or face lifts.
Many people are looking for instant solutions to their skin care issues or want to physically augment their appearance because of a sense of dissatisfaction with their appearance. Most physicians will prefer to prescribe natural skincare solutions and offer a variety of choices in terms of how to moderately treat your skincare issue before suggesting you go in for radical and invasive surgeries. Get proper professional advise before you head off to seek a surgical, “instant” option. The likelihood is small that a skincare procedure that involves a any form of anesthesia or an injection of skin bacteria may be the healthier choice.
Next time you consider trying to plump up your lips with a Botox injection or try to puff up your cheeks with some sort of skin bacterial injection, consider doing it the natural way. This can usually be in the form of a cream or lotion that will be significantly less severe than actually adding chemicals to the facial structure and bloodstream. The potential side effects of a chemical addition to your blood or bady can cause unknown allergic problems for many people and are not recommended above natural skincare solutions.
Instead, seek the opinion of a natural skincare expert and allow them to map your facial structure for the skin type and other factors. This will help in administering the best natural skincare product for your face and body, helping the product to work better with your skin type and color. This all comes at a fraction of the risk and at a much lower cost than the surgical procedure.
Administering natural products into your skin is a much better way to maintain a proper skin type and also a better way to improve the look of your skin.
Pure, natural skin care products do not contain the numerous synthetic additives that can cause the human skin’s defense to weaken as well as the unseemly and ugly skin irritations. In addition, the chemical based skin care products may also cause rashes to break out as well as the debilitating allergies. Some, if not all of the chemical additives are by products of motor oil (that’s right), petroleum products and insecticides or even worse.
One hundred percent organic and natural skin care products will help nourish and restore your skin, as well as strengthen the skin and keep it healthy. By using natural skin care treatments, they will work in harmony with the body so you can be assured of having healthy skin which, in turn, will help keep the whole body healthy by asking it to do less internal cleansing and detoxing.
Healthy skin will excrete an important protective covering called the “acid mantle.” This helps to protect the skin from environmental effects as well as harmful organisms. To keep the skin in good health as well as to keep your acid mantle functioning properly you need to have a healthy lifestyle along with a natural or organic skin care regimen.
This can be achieved by not only just eating healthy foods consisting of a whole food diet, but also constantly getting essential fatty acids through consumption of unrefined, expeller pressed plant oils or fish oils. In addition, one should drink plenty of water as well as exercise regularly. Using natural moisturizers and natural sun protectors like zinc and zinc oxide will help in lubricating your skin and protecting you from harmful UVA / UVB rays.
Natural face creams, containing shea butter, coco butter and organic oils as well as organic hand and body lotions will help keep the skin naturally free of blemishes. The best organic and natural skin care products are made from high quality botanical oils and ingredients, which are typically produced in small, carefully packed packages so that one can be assured of purchasing only fresh stocks. So, be sure to give your body and your skin a break…feed it well with nourshing natural foods and organic skin treatments.
