My favorite parts of Fall are the changing colors of the leaves, sipping warm tea in the morning and wrapping a warm scarf around my neck before I head out. My least favorite part? Dry skin. Thankfully, I’ve been keeping itchy dry skin at bay with Olivaloe’s Body Lotion and Hand Cream.
Today, I’m delighted to introduce the back story behind the creation of eco-fashion boutique brand, Beaumont Organic.
Having worked for a large fashion brand as an assistant buyer, Hannah, the Founder of Beaumont Organic decided there was a gap in the market for beautiful, fashionable, organic and ethical pieces, and that it was time to go it alone.
She threw herself into the organic fashion market in 2008 and very shortly gained great success with her first capsule collection of simple organic cotton pieces winning her the prestigious Best Organic Textile Product at the Natural and Organic Awards in 2008. Since then the company has found a huge amount success in the Japanese market, online and throughout boutiques in the UK, with the collections growing every year.
Today, I’m so excited to introduce our new feature beauty food series. My sister, Calla, has graciously agreed to write a few posts and share her nutritional knowledge with us. To kick things off, she’ll start off introducing 5 beauty foods you need to be eating this Fall for gorgeous glowing skin.
The truth is, I don’t have good hair. It’s not in the best condition. I have a dry scalp that itches and produces dandruff. Black tops are no longer my go-to outfit item, as it becomes embarrassingly littered with my dandruff speckles. I’ve been searching far and wide for a cure, and I think I’ve finally found it.
Finding the right skin care routine is more work than you would imagine. Going through brands, skimming through reviews, testing and hoping, and searching again; it can take a few tries before finding something that work. When it finally clicks, and your skin is responding positively, it’s always great to stick to that regimen.
My skin has definitely reaped benefits from Stephanie Devine skincare. Based in California, this brand is advocates on sticking to the regimen.
My trips to Italy has given me memories that can never be replaced. Whether it be their creamy gelato, the warm breeze hugging my skirt as a walk through the streets of Florence, or the beautiful pedestrians in their gorgeous outfits, Italy is truly one of a kind. So I was thrilled to be introduced to a one of a kind skincare brand, Istituto Ecologico Edelweiss. Based in Lombardy, this family owned skincare company harvests their herbs locally and fuses it with technology to create effective and environmental skincare.
I always believe that certain scents trigger specific memories or feelings. That scents are what bring us back to a certain moment in time. I’m never one for strong overbearing scents, but when it’s comforting and inviting, I tend to return to it and become attached. It’s the same with skincare. As I’ve cleaned out my cabinet of artificial fragrances and started exploring skincare products that include essential oils that not only smell divine and have beneficial skin properties, I’ve become more excited when I open up a new bottle or cream or take my first sniff at a new oil. And Nalia Organic’s Kerala skin care line does just that.
I’m sure you know by now that I have a love for Moroccan oils. There really isn’t anything better than a pure and simple bottle of Prickly Pear Seed oil that has been lovingly harvested and cold-pressed and delivered to my door. Moroccan oils have delivered amazing results to my skin, moisturizing it without clogging my pores or causing breakouts, and evening my skin tone. My skin drinks it up and loves it.
That is why when Moroccan Natural, based in the U.K., provided me with some of their samples, I was instantly excited to try their product range. Here are a few of my favorites:
