  • How to Keep Your Summer Skin’s Dewy Glow All Year ‘Round

    Goodbye to summer heat and full body sweating, frizzy hair, and running makeup.

    Hot but glowing! Thanks to all that Humidity! Hot but glowing thanks to all that humidity!

    We won’t miss you much…except for the lazy days and cloudless blue skies and the natural help your humidity gave our skin’s dewy glow.

    But, now it’s time to take action against the lack of humidity and colder temperatures of fall and winter.

    We need to boost our hydrating beauty regimen to avoid dull skin, premature (or otherwise) fine lines and wrinkles and a loss of bounce and glow. Here are some steps to take:

    1.) Cleanse morning and night – Find a routine you can stick to. This may include a single foaming or creamy cleanser from the Organic Pharmacy, a nighttime balm from the Queen of Clean, Eve Lom, or the iconic double cleanse of cleansing oil and face bar from Erno Laszlo.

    2.) Incorporate exfoliation in your routine. – Exfoliate with a salt or sugar body scrub to wash away flaky dull skin, soften skin and help moisturizers penetrate deeper.

    3.) Use a facial toner. A simple sweep of toner will prepare your face for deeper penetration of your serums and creams and whisk away any residual dirt, makeup or residue from your cleansers. Try the pH balancing Citrus Toner from LATHER or the Oasis Hydrating Tonic from ODE.

    A 10 Second Sweep with toner on a cotton pad can make all the difference in your level of hydration. A 10 Second Sweep with toner on a cotton pad can make all the difference in increasing your level of hydration.

    4.) Always moisturize - And then do it again. Apply moisturizing products immediate after bathing or showering and then again, at night. Check out ODE Natural Beauty

    5.) Plan on masking at least once a week. A mask concentrates on your specific skin concern such as hydration, detoxing, brightening, or clarifying. You get instant results whether you use a cream, a clay or a sheet mask. ERNO LASAZLO Firming Hydrogel Mask

    6.) Turn down the temperature - Avoid hot baths or showers. Hot temperatures dry out the skin and break capillaries. Keep water "hand hot."

    7.) Always protect your skin. Even on the coldest, gloomiest days, UVA rays penetrate the cloud cover to cause sunburns, skin cancer, and speed up aging. And, don't forget to reapply.

    8.) Hydrate often and Change Your Diet - Drink plenty of water. Eat fruits and vegetables and look for foods high in essential fatty acids such as olive oil, salmon and avocados.Food to Improve Brain Cognitive Functions

    Follow these suggestions and you'll maintain well-hydrated, radiant skin all year long.



  • VAPOUR Organic Beauty FAQs

    download vapour

    Q: I understand that all Vapour products contain a minimum of 70% Organic ingredients. What is the other 30%?
    A: The other 30% is reserved primarily for the beautiful mineral pigments that color the products. It also includes Vitamin E, and other beneficial botanicals not yet available with an organic designation. So the other 30% is natural, just not organic.

    Q: Will Vapour's oil/wax base make my skin break out?
    A: No. Everyone's skin is different, and diet has much to do with the underlying health of our skin. All  Vapour products are designed with non-comedogenic ingredients that are very compatible with the skin. Vapour will not make your skin break out. Vapour doesn’t obscure the skin. Vapour makes it glow!

    Q: Do your products contain any nano-particles?
    A: No. Your health and safety is Vapour’s highest priority. They do not use any ingredients that could be potentially harmful. All minerals and pigments are cosmetic-grade particle size – much larger than micronized or nano-particles and will not pass through your skin.

    Q: Why isn't there any water in the Vapour products?
    A. Water is really important to skin health but not necessarily when applied topically to "moisturize" the surface. You are better off eating moisture-laden fruits and vegetables and drinking your daily 64 oz. of water, and then, locking that moisture in with a plant oil/beeswax based moisturizer like Stratus. Beeswax lets the skin breathe and does not block pores. Vapour plant oil and beeswax base locks in the skin's own moisture and is anti-oxidant and skin softening.

    Another important reason that Vapour does not use water is that water is where bacteria grow. By not using water, Vapour does not have to use harsh "killer" preservatives. Water is also a precious resource that should be conserved.
