In My Bathroom Cabinet…
An all-natural skin care brand I am becoming utterly obsessed with. The below blurb on their website fully explains my infatuation with Astara's line.
"Astara was founded on the belief that the human body is a beautiful, self-healing organism if given the proper nourishment and environment. Eating an enzyme-rich diet of raw fruits and vegetables, nuts, grains, seaweeds and sprouted seeds has proven to have a profound effect on health. We at Astara Skin Care believe that optimum health and beauty can be achieved by the intake of raw, chemical-free, enzyme-rich foods, which detoxify and rejuvenate the body and its skin at its most essential level.
Astara believes this paradigm applies also to skin care. The skin, as the largest organ in the body, is a true reflection of overall health. In order to bring the skin’s healing properties to maximum performance and radiance, Astara Skin Care products provide essential, life-giving energy to the cells, using powerful, raw ingredients from elements of nature around the world. As a result, each natural ingredient is carefully chosen to support the skin’s healing process. Our products nourish the skin through the use of natural ingredients including flower essences, antioxidants and botanical extracts.
We understand that heating the life-giving ingredients above 115 degrees Fahrenheit (46 degrees Celsius) destroys their very necessary enzymes and oxygen, which are vital for optimum health. The latest research clearly suggests that the cooked and processed foods we eat have no vital healing energy, leading to illness, chronic disease and premature death. Because we believe in the value and integrity of our life-giving nutrients, our active ingredients are never heated above 105 degrees Fahrenheit (40.5 Celsius). Therefore our products maintain the power to heal deeply, to regenerate cells, and to assist the skin in attaining optimum health and a more youthful appearance.”
I recently began using their Blue Flame Anti-Bacterial Purifying Toner and their Blue Flame Oil Free Moisturizer. My face has instantly felt cleaner, tighter and softer. I have also been using their Blue Flame Purification Mask for almost a year now. It’s enriched with Tea Tree Oil, a mega bacteria killer and healer. I use it almost every night before bed and swear by it. Majorly celebrity endorsed as well: http://www.astaraskincare.com/the-buzz/celebrities
The product will be a bit hard to find at your local store, but their site offers a really easy locator by address to learn where you can purchase.
