Trade in Your Lotions for Body Oils

We Americans are lotion lovers. But in Europe and other parts of the world, oil is actually the more popular option for hydrating dry skin... The truth is, most natural oils are easily absorbed, not greasy, and noncomedogenic; that is, they have a low potential to clog pores, which makes oils perfect for all skin types.

Moisturizers often contain the most synthetic chemicals and petroleum by-products, many of which are linked to health concerns. Seeing as moisturizers work by deeply penetrating skin, it's smart to consider using green products, which contain fewer synthetic chemicals that may enter your bloodstream.

If you are looking for a natural brand that is effective, look no further than Province Apothecary.

Its One Love, Morning, Noon and Night

During the summertime it may be a misconception that the humidity and sweat from the heat bring moisture to the body but this is not entirely true. During these warm summer months, you will be exposed to the sun on a much more extended basis, as well as salt water and chlorine if the beaches and pools tickle your fancy and these all add up to drying out your skin and hair. 

Most people have a certain skin routine and do not change it as the seasons change but let me tell you...its time for an update! Wearing makeup in the hot months and sweating then possibly falling asleep after a long nights out are HORRIBLE for the integrity of your skin. 

Add these simple steps to your daily routine for the softest skin, that people will have to touch...Let One Love show you the way

In the Mornings:

One Love Organics' Gardenia + Tea Antioxidant Body Serum is one to beat, not to mention environmentally friendly and cruelty-free. The formula has the benefits of two exotic oils, sea buckthorn and chia which add omega-3 and 7 to skin. In a base of coconut oil derivative and sunflower oil, the gardenia scent has a chance to scent skin to the perfect degree. Plus, it works as a beach essential because it can be used in the hair as well!

During the day:

During the day, One Love Organics' Vitamin D Moisture Mist is a part lightweight moisturizer, part toner, this botanical mist infuses skin with emollient oils and Vitamin E via a delayed time-release delivery system for long-lasting hydration and unparalleled efficacy. Shiitake mushroom, a natural source of Vitamin D, helps tone and balance while antioxidant-rich alpine rose helps to protect against environmental stressors and elemental dryness.

At Night:

Remember to wash the day off with the One Love Organics' Vitamin B Enzyme Cleansing Oil + Makeup Remover which effortlessly lifts away impurities and makeup while restoring skin’s natural moisture barrier and pH balance. This non-stripping, clean-rinsing formula features papain, a fruit enzyme that helps to exfoliate and soften, and a natural Vitamin B complex to detoxify and tone.

Giving Up the ManBun for the ManBraid

        It’s now 2016 and that means a new year and new hair styles.  We are saying goodbye to the trend that people loved… the Manbun. I know, you may be wondering, well…what am I to do now? You spent the whole year growing out those luscious locks and you feel like you are in a good place to properly tie up your hair and make a substantial bun but that is so last year.

        This is the year of the man braid, you can still have the same hair length but you might need to ask for some help when attempting this style. This style has been featured in various outlets from GQ to Refinery 29 and it is definitely going to have its year to shine.  Men are now more comfortable trying new looks and paying attentions to the new trend. We think the best way to achieve this sleek look is to first apply a pomade of some kind, we decided to go with the BAXTER of California Hard Water Pomade that looks like it has a little glitter in it, but once applied it just leaves a beautiful healthy shine to the hair.

        Most stylists or even barbers can hook you up with a nice braid hairstyle and its something that is quick and easy to do. Next time you get a hair cut do something different and ask for this style and just wait for the compliments to come in, be daring and have fun! It’s just hair.
