4 Flowers for a Healthy, Blooming Skin

It is such a great blessing that we are surrounded by beautiful things that have amazing characteristics, which we can then use for many different things. Take flowers as an example. They are good as decoration for the home, giving off amazing and natural scents, and as a present to someone special.  Moreover, their extracts can be incorporated into skin care products for that healthier and clearer complexion everyone dreams of having.

Here are four flowers that have great benefits to our skin:



Rose is called the “queen of all flowers” because of its hydrating powers and ability to heal broken blood vessels, making it perfect for mature skin type. This flower is the best at rejuvenating the skin, as it really purifies and preserves it. Rose is also able to fight free-radical damage, as well as condition the scalp and promote the growth of healthy hair. It is also able to minimize scars, stretch marks and wrinkles.


Lavender has antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. It can also balance sebum production to prevent the formation of pimples. This flower is also great for renewing skin cells making it perfect for speeding up the healing process of cuts, burns and abrasions. Lavender contains a huge amount of antioxidants that fight the harmful effects of pollutants.


Chamomile has the ability to soothe dry and irritated skin, as well as improve its elasticity. It has long been used in the ancient times to treat wounds and promote healing because of its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Moreover, it is capable of naturally brightening the skin and giving it glow. Chamomile can also reduce the formation of acne, as well as eliminate scars. Lastly, it has the ability to rejuvenate the cells, help shrink pores and slow down the ageing process.


Sunflower is rich in Vitamin E, Sterols and Squalene, which are important in keeping the hair and skin healthy. It is also able to help in retaining moisture and treating acne. This flower is overflowing with antioxidants that aid in preventing early signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines. Additionally, it has the ability to create a protective barrier for the prevention of UV damage.

These flowers just go to show that our environment does have everything we need, not only to make our skins healthier but to live a more amazing life.

Be Stress-free Every Day with these Essential Oils

This fast-paced environment has given us the opportunity to do so many things and explore so many places easily. However, the act of quenching our curiosity may lead to so much stress, may it be in the physical, emotional or mental form. And because there is a need for us to perform well in our day-to-day life, it becomes imperative for our wellness to always be in good shape. Therefore, banishing stress from our systems should be a priority. One way to do this is through aromatherapy using Essential Oils.

These Essential Oils can help relieve 5 different types of stress:


Frankincense for Environmental Stress

Being in the wrong environment can give someone great difficulty in coping, leading to massive stress. These can include cramped spaces or inadequate ventilation. However, even familiar surroundings can give the same effect. Bombardment of text messages and calls, machinery noise, and buzzing lights or computers may be natural to us but these too can cause stress.

The best way to combat this is through the use of Frankincense Oil. It has the ability to relieve stress and anxiety, provide comfort, and even induce sleep because of its balsamic aroma.

Lavender for Chemical Stress

Chemical stress can be caused by the very food and beverages we consume. Too much coffee, junk food and prescribed drugs all have the ability to induce stress just as much as vehicle pollution or equipment chemicals.

To alleviate this, use Lavender Oil for its powerful mood-boosting properties. A quick whiff of its floral aroma can naturally calm and relax the mind.

Chamomile for Physical Stress

There are times people give so much focus on their physical bodies to maintain a healthy state that they tend to overwork and push themselves to their limits. Although there is nothing wrong with keeping fit, it is never a bad thing to have some rest and only do exercise that we can manage because this habit can give off stress.

To ease such feeling, it is best to use Chamomile Oil as it is effective yet very gentle. It has the ability to soothe tired muscles and raging nerves, as well as boost mood.

Bergamot for Mental Stress

Our mental wellness is just as important as our physical health because if it isn’t in its best condition then everything is affected. Some of the reasons for mental stress include having financial worries, anguish over uncompleted tasks and unemployment.

This dilemma can be reduced using Bergamot Oil, which brightens the mood. It is prized for being able to build confidence and dispel anxious feelings because it provides a calming effect.

Ylang Ylang for Emotional Stress

It is important we are able to express our emotions as much as we can because keeping them bottled up can also cause stress. Some reasons for this are bullying, jealousy and relationship problems.

The use of Ylang-Ylang Oil is good for this problem because it has calming properties that drive away stress and relax the body. Its rich, sweet and flowery scent also promotes a positive outlook.


Yes, we have different ways of coping with stress but it is always best to pick the techniques that would surely benefit us in the long run.

5 Nutrients To Keep Your Skin Healthy

The skin is the largest and heaviest external organ of the body, something that is susceptible to damage because of the many harsh elements. Because of this, it is only important that we take care of it as much and as often as possible through healthy food, regular exercise, and gentle but effective skin care products. Moreover, our skin care should have the nutrients that would deeply feed our skin with the sustenance it needs to maintain a healthy state.

Here are 5 nutrients you need for a healthy skin:

Vitamin E – one of the basic vitamins needed to make the skin healthy especially when combined with Vitamin A since they become effective in preventing certain types of skin cancers. The antioxidant properties present in Vitamin E help in fighting free radicals, caused by pollution and sun exposure, which prompt premature skin aging. Some sources of this vitamin include almonds, eggs, walnuts, avocados, asparagus, sunflower seeds, pine nuts, spinach, oatmeal, and olives.

*Pure Actives Emu Oil, Tsubaki Oil, Sacha Inchi Oil, Argan Oil, and Hazelnut Oil, as well as Bikini Bomb, Exfobomb and our Ultra Nourishing Tonics have Vitamin E

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) – an essential moisturizer, since it retains water and contributes to skin elasticity. It has the ability to decrease wrinkles, enhance hydration, and improve firmness. Due to its humectant property, it strengthens the skin’s protective barrier to prevent infections. HA also supports healing, while giving the skin an antioxidant defense against UV damage.

*Total Potion, Eternal Pearl, and Naked Truth have HA

Rosemary – have powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties making it good for treating acne, reducing undereye puffiness and improving circulation for a glowing skin. It also helps in fighting sun and free radical damage. This component can tighten the skin to prevent early signs of aging.

*Clear Y Rosy, Shades of Shave and our Ultra Nourishing Tonics have Rosemary

Vitamin C – a powerful antioxidant that is part of collagen synthesis and an important protein for making the skin supple. This can also even out skin tone, protect it from pollution, improve hydration and keep the skin younger-looking. Food sources rich in Vitamin C include broccoli, Brussels sprouts, kale, bell peppers, guava, grapefruit, strawberries, red and green bell peppers, parsley, and turnip greens.

*Keep Safe, Cucumber Toner, Witch Hazel Toner and CPC + G Oil have Vitamin C

Selenium – a powerful antioxidant trace mineral responsible for maintaining skin firmness and elasticity. It is able to prevent acne and aid in skin cancer prevention. It promotes absorption of vitamin E, which results in a glowing skin and less deterioration to its collagen. Food sources high in selenium are walnuts, red snapper, tuna, liver, herring, onion, seafood, whole grains, brown rice and poultry.

*Shades Of Shave has Selenium

This world is filled with nutrients that could feed our bodies and skin, ensuring they are always healthy. It is really just a matter of creativity in making things that would help us utilize them even better.

Exfobomb & Bikini Bomb: Brightening Explosives to Rid of Dark Unwanted Areas

So many people have become obsessed with skin whitening that they would go to lengths just to achieve their goal of having a lighter complexion. Some would get frequent laser treatments, whitening surgeries, or take medication to fulfill this desire. Little did they know that these procedures can do damage to their skin including irritation, discoloration, and even cancer.

There is, however, nothing wrong with getting rid of dark unwanted areas. Especially with the increased heat nowadays and all you want is to feel refreshed with your spaghetti tops, shorts, and flip flops. Good thing, V&M Naturals have a Brightening Care Line that has two very amazing salves, which can help in maintaining an even skin tone: Exfobomb and Bikini Bomb.

Exfobomb is an exfoliating salve that gets rid of dead skin cells and brightens the complexion. It aids in the renewal of skin while gently moisturizing rough areas.

Bikini Bomb, on the other hand, has a micro-peeling effect to remove the epidermal skin without leaving it rough and dry. Instead, it makes the skin younger-looking and even gives it a glow.

Both of these are rich in natural actives that contribute to achieving a brighter and more moisturized skin. Some of these ingredients include:

  1. Candelilla Wax and Beeswax - natural emollients that provide moisture-resistance barriers.

  2. Dead Sea Salt - improves skin hydration and enhances skin barrier. It reduces skin roughness, which contributes to fine lines and deep wrinkles.

  3. Emu Oil - made up of 70% essential fatty acids and contains Vitamins E and A, which are important in maintaining the overall skin health.

  4. Crambe Oil - provides protection from dehydration by forming a barrier.

  5. Licorice Root extract - contains Glabridin, which is a powerful skin-lightening agent, and Licochalcone, which balances oil production.

  6. Mulberry extract - has antioxidants like Vitamins A, E, and carotenoid components, which help reduce premature signs of aging.

  7. Aloe Vera extract - has natural polysaccharides that provide superior moisturization. It also contains proteolytic enzymes, which repair dead skin cells. It is rich in antioxidants to counteract free radical damage that affects skin collagen. Provides Vitamins A, C, and E that hydrate the skin from within and nourishes it.

You see, there are so many ways to get rid of dark areas without the use of harsh chemicals that may have irreversible consequences in the future. We are given this rich environment for so many reasons and one of which is to utilize its resources to live a wonderful, healthy life.
