Why Premature Wrinkles?

Have you ever wondered why your facial and neck skin is aging much faster than the skin on the rest of your body?

 

The answer is simple and lays in the lack of protection!

Oh Lou Lou! Organic Handmade Face CreamYour skin does not like sudden temperature changes.

 

Going from the cold outdoors into heated indoors and vice-versa takes its toll on your complexion.  It causes the capillaries to contract and expand rapidly leading to broken veins, redness and premature wrinkles.

 

In addition, humidity also tends to drop off in the autumn and winter months. The drier the air, the more moisture it sucks from your skin, which may result in dryness and flakiness, especially if you’re prone to eczema, allergies or other dry skin conditions.

What to do?

It is also simple 🙂

Protect your skin.

Wear a scarf.

Avoid exposing your skin to temperature extremes.

Use a highly moisturizing, long lasting, heavy duty face cream.

We like those without water, 100% active ingredients: 100% oils, 100% pure.

And smile – the smiling wrinkles are the greatest wrinkles to have 🙂

Prof. Hristo Mermerski’s Tweaked Recipe for Colorectal Cancer

After many preparations of this Prof. Mermerski Remedy for my mom, I wanted to share few insights and how we have tweaked the recipe to help with her colorectal cancer. The information below I used as an inspiration to tweak the recipe

The researches do generally agree that

  • Frankincense can significantly boost the immune system.  Moreover, Boswellia (Frankincense) is a viable candidate for both cancer prevention and treatment.
  • Curcuma/turmeric helps fight Colon Cancer.
  • Whilst there is no evidence that coconut oil kills instantly colon cancer, it is safe  to say that it does help prevent or reverse colon cancer with other natural remedies and diet.

Prof. Hristo Mermerski’s Garlic Remedy – Tweaked Recipe for Colorectal Cancer

I follow always the same base recipe as described Mermerski Remedy and add to it

  • 200gr of VIRGIN organic coconut oil (warmed up to become liquid, but not too warm)
  • 20 drops of frankincense essential oil
  • 10 drops of turmeric (curcuma) essential oil

Mix all well, use, store as described in Mermerski Remedy

Again –  we can all agree that this powerful set of ingredients helps strengthen the immune system and for the rest, we believe what we want to believe 🙂

For what it’s worth – my mom is doing fine.

Let me know if you used the recipe and how did it work for you.

Natural Skin Care – Coconut Oil as Replacement for Beauty and Skin Care Products

Coconut Oil Instead Of Many Beauty And Skin Care Products!

Once you realize that majority of beauty and cosmetic lines contain extremely toxic and cancerogenic substances, you may find yourself lost in deciphering the ingredient lists and trying to figure out which products are safe.

How about throwing away your dangerous and expensive creams and products and go get some virgin coconut oil?

Oh Lou Lou! Natural Skin CareUsing some high quality virgin coconut oil as base/carrier and adding some essential oils and couple of other ingredients you can literary replace majority of skin care products. Plus it will save you lots of money!

When applied topically, coconut oil will reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by keeping your connective tissues strong and flexible. It will also help with exfoliating the outer layer of dead skin cells. As a result, your skin will look fresh, younger and smoother.

Contrary to many claims that you can see lately on social networks, VIRGIN coconut oil is non-comedogenic (it does not clog pores)!

In fact, when used in its purest form it works wonders for any type of skin including acneic! This is because Coconut oil is anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal. For example, Candida, Staphylococcus aureus, and other pathogens, fungi, bacteria and viruses are destroyed by coconut oil.

DIY recipes on how to use coconut oil as base ingredient for different beauty and skin care products are posted daily all over the web.

Also, the entire concept of many handmade organic small-batch skincare start-ups including ours http://ohloulou.com is based on using mostly VIRGIN coconut oil as a base for its products.

If you don’t have the time or desire to learn about it and make it, we can gladly make it for you – see our range of purest possible organic skincare products Oh Lou Lou!

Coconut oil can be used in hundreds different ways, here are some of them

  • Make-up remover. Apply some coconut oil with a cotton ball and clean your make-up just as you would use a regular make-up remover. Wash off with some warm water and pat dry.
  • Facial cleanser. Massage some coconut oil onto face and neck. Wash off with warm water and pat dry.
  • Shaving lotion. Massage some coconut oil on area to be shaved, and shave as usual. Coconut oil is a good antiseptic due to lauric acid and helps with shaving cuts.
  • Face and body moisturizer. Mix some coconut oil and essential oil hydrolat (the water collected when plants are steam-distilled to gather essential oils).
  • Deodorant. Apply some coconut oil directly onto your armpits. I mix coconut oil with a small amount of baking soda and it works perfectly.
  • Facial/Body Scrub. Mix coconut oil with baking soda, or oatmeal with a dash of cinnamon, for a gentle facial scrub. Add organic cane sugar for a good body scrub.
  • Insect repellent. Mix coconut oil with essential oils known as insect repellent: peppermint, citronella (Java), rosemary, tea tree oil, geraniol, catnip oil etc.
  • Natural Sunscreen.  You can find here a Quick Recipe for Natural Sunscreen 
  • Facial Cream. Ladies,  instead of throwing tons of money on big brands you can try this 5 min. DYI Anti-age Facial Cream

Just make sure to look for organic, cold pressed, unrefined, virgin Coconut oil. Refined coconut oil is indeed comedogenic (pore clogging) and we don’t recommend it for skincare products.
