Good Morning All!
I’ve been thinking about when we women “mature” (the nice way of saying getting old) 🙂 how very much our bodies, skin and hair change. What beauty regimen worked for us a few years ago or even last year, may not work in the same way or at all.
During my first research phases for formulating my health & beauty line, I found so much information that it was mind-boggling. I literally had to piece it all together from many different sources studies, books, articles etc… Based on the tons of data that I read, reviewed and revisited, I finally decided that three key essentials were needed for the mature woman in her natural beauty regimen. I call them mature beauty musts.
The benefits of pure coconut oil are astounding! They include shiny healthy hair, radiant skin, great stress relief, help with maintaining cholesterol levels, stimulate thyroid function to facilitate weight loss, boost immunity, heal and regulate digestion and metabolism, relief from some kidney issues, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, dental care, bone strength & more!
The benefits of coconut oil can be attributed to the presence of lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid, and its properties such as antimicrobial, antioxidant, antifungal, antibacterial, soothing, etc. The many benefits of Coconut Oil are far too many to list and explain here.

Second Mature Beauty Must: Jojoba Oil
Purchase pure jojoba oil and use it on your skin in abundance (meaning all day long whenever you think of it, although a little goes a long way when you put it on your skin), and for any skin problem from burns to scars to simple moisturizing. It is very unlikely to aggravate sensitive skin or problem skin such as rosacea. It is a natural cleanser and helps acne due to its antibacterial properties.
Third Mature Beauty Must: Rose Water
Rose Water is a great natural all around skin care must. Women have enjoyed the many benefits and soothing / healing properties of rose-water for ages. It is rich in anti-bacterial and antiseptic qualities that are so wonderful for skin of any age but especially beneficial to mature skin.
Rose Water Cleanser
Mix 1 cup rose-water, 10 drops rose essential oil, 2 tbsp. glycerin. This will soothe, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and is a natural anti-inflammatory agent.
Rose Water Toner
Add 1 1/4 cup rose-water, 3/4 cup witch hazel and 8 glycerin drops to a brown or blue glass spray bottle. Shake to mix initially and shake well before each use. This solution will gently cleanse and revitalize skin as well as tighten pores.
Rose Water Wrinkle Reducing Night Cream
Supplement your own favorite natural lotion or cream with several drops of rose-water. It will help to reduce wrinkles, refresh you as well as help heal many skin issues. Apply liberally especially right before bed.
I chose these three mature beauty musts based upon the following factors:
Affordability, ease of availability, versatility and overall health benefit especially for mature skin and hair.
I will offer all of the above ingredients in my store THE Eco-Chic Boutique upon launch September 1st, 2010.

All The Best To You & Your Beautiful Mature Skin & Hair!
