Most of us hopefully watch what we put inside our bodies but what about what we put on top of them? I'm talking about what we smother on the biggest organ of our body; our skin? Our skin absorbs chemicals into our system so it makes sense to use products that are organic and natural.
One brand that I'm a fan of is G&M Cosmetics an organic and ISO 9001 certified company that has been supplying international and national retailers for over 21 years. In fact, recently they were recognised as the most trusted Australian brand in China, according to a new ABC Index (Australian Brands in China) revealed by Monash University and Digital Crew. When you think about that, it's a big achievement consider China's massive manufacturing companies.
Here are my three favourite Native Australian Skincare Products.
I'm in my 50's so I don't try and make myself look like I'm 20 years younger, there is no point and I'm happy how I look for my age. What I do believe is that we should make the best of what we look like for our age, and if we can find some great products to help us do that, then that's fantastic. That also means exercise, fashion and being proud of reaching this age, many others never get here.
These three products I am using and love. I've noticed a 'glow' on my skin and I feel fantastic. It's worth noting I've just been on a detox and I've suffered terribly from sweets and rashes, but it's all over now, and I think the combination of the detox and keeping nasties off my skin has helped a lot. I've also been having lots of green smoothies.
NATIVE AUSTRALIAN LANOLIN BRIGHTENING LOTION
With a lanolin base this lotion is designed to illuminate and even out skin tone. The Kakadu Plum extracts provides a concentrated natural Vitamin C. The Kakadu Plum is sourced from the pristine outback of Native Australia and enhanced by an abundance of super nourishing extracts and natural oils for beautiful healthy skin. Vitamin C has been known for its skincare benefits helping reduce the signs of ageing. The Lanolin and Sweet Almond Oil lubricates the skin leaving it soft and glowing.
I have found that it only takes a little of the Native Australian Lanolin Brightening Lotion to go a long way. This is a luxurious product without the luxury brand price tag.
NATIVE AUSTRALIAN RESTORATION LOTION
Pollution and indoor air conditioning are no friend to our skin and this lotion is designed to protect and nourish the skin from these two! The hero ingredient in this lotion is the Native Australian Finger Lime extract harvested from a delicate NSW rainforest tree native in the Northern Rivers Region. Finger Lime Extract has high content of Vitamin C which is known to help protect skin from damaging free radicals and UV. Being lanolin based the lotion is well absorbed into the skin keeping it moisturised and the added Vitamin B3 helps repair and also protect from UV damage. This product is designed to encourage the skin to shed dead cells and grow new ones and that is helped by the Allantoin contained in the lotion. I'm convinced the Native Australian Restoration Lotion has helped my skin look brighter and feel tighter.
NATIVE AUSTRALIAN GOATS MILK & MANUKA HONEY COMPLEX
Without a doubt this is a sensational product that I use on my face as well as all over my body. It's a generous sized jar and a little goes a long way, possibly because it is light and absorbs fast into the skin. I'm a sun lover so my skin in always tanned but in winter, even though I'm still tanned my skin gets quite dry. As soon as I apply the Native Australian Goats Milk and Manuka Honey Complex by skin is glowing and all the dryness vanishes, and it stays that way all day.
This highly nourishing cream is also enriched with natural oils such as Macadamia Oil, Sunflower Oil, Ylang Ylang Oil and Sweet Orange Oil.
All these creams smell beautiful and are a pleasure to use. Sometimes I will apply during the day too, just because I love them so much.
They are also very reasonably priced.
