Dead Sea Mud Masque – Removes Toxins, Oils & Impurities

Posted by Kim Williams on

Rafa Natural’s Vegan and Gluten Free Dead Sea Mud Masque – Removes Toxins, Oils and Impurities   Who would have thought that smearing mud on your face would make you more beautiful? But this is no ordinary mud. This specially formulated Dead Sea Mineral Mud helps to remove toxins and improve skin clarity and elasticity. Got oily skin? You’ll love how this masque drinks up that extra oil and dries up acne. Had I known this I would have spent more time playing in the mud, during my horrible young adult acne phase… Below is a more detailed description of the ingredients within Rafa Natural’s Dead Sea Mud Masque.     Dead Sea Mud Help to draw toxins and excess sebum (Oil) from skin. Making it perfect for those with acne and oily skin. It also increases blood circulation imparting a healthy rosy glow. Moroccan Lava Clay (Rhassoul Clay) A great natural skin detoxifier. It deep cleans pores and tightens skin. Due to its unique mineral makeup, it replaces minerals in the skin.  Magnesium, calcium, potassium, and iron are replenished resulting in firmer, plumper, and more even toned complexion. Rose Hip Fruit Oil This amazing oil is full of vitamins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids that are known to correct age spots and hydrate the skin, while reducing scars and fine lines. It’s even helpful for eczema and psoriasis due to its high essential fatty acid content. Shea Butter There are butter, then there are super butters. Undoubtedly Shea falls into the super category. Full of essential fatty acids it’s deeply moisturizing. It repairs scars and fine lines, protects skin, acts as a UV protectant, stimulates collagen production, and more. So why a heavy butter in a masque designated for oily people? Because left on their own Dead Sea Mud and Rhassoul Clay would be too drying. That kind of uncomfortable “my skin is too tight for my face” feeling, plus with all of the other benefits it offers skin, it’s a great ingredient to include in this masque. Organic Essential Oils of Sweet Orange, Ylang-Ylang, Pine, Palmarosa, and Spearmint All of these work together to decongest skin, remove toxins, and improve skin clarity, plus they smell darn good! Pseudocollagen Naturally derived from yeast, this skin-building additive help build collagen for fewer lines and wrinkles. Fruit Extracts of Pineapple, Banana, and Papaya   These ingredients provide naturally occurring alpha hydroxy acids to remove dead skin cells and brighten the complexion. Ginkgo Biloba Used in traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries, it’s recently been discovered to provide benefits to the skin as well. It’s a powerful antioxidant that detoxifies skin. It also provides a healthy rosy glow due to its stimulating qualities. Ginseng Extract Used as a well known stress reliever, when taken internally; when applied to skin it has revitalizing properties that refresh dull and lack luster complexions. Green Tea Extract An amazing antioxidant that is said to repair environmental damage to skin. To try Rafa Natural’s amazing Dead Sea Mud Masque visit us at Rafa Natural.

Clarifying Cleanser for Acne & Oily Skin

Rafa Natural Clarifying Cleanser

Rafa Natural’s Organic & Vegan Clarifying Cleanser for Acne & Oily Skin The Clarifying Cleanser is an incredibly refreshing foaming cleanser which is packed with extracts and vitamins to protect and nourish skin while the charcoal deeply cleans all the bacteria away. We’ve also added Essential Oils of Bergamot, Tea Tree, Roman Chamomile, & German Chamomile to help eliminate break outs. Acne is the result of clogged pores. When the skin’s sebaceous glands produce too much oil its the perfect environment for acne causing bacteria to grow. Many  products try to stop oil production by drying out the skin resulting in red flaky skin. Rafa Natural’s Clarifying Cleanser takes a three prong approach: 1. Deep Clean – Activated Charcoal, Tea Tree, Hydrogen Peroxide 2. Calm and Heal – Rooibos Extract, DMAE 3. Smooth and Prevent – Organic Fruit Extracts Below is a more detailed description of Rafa Natural’s amazing Clarifying Cleanser. Activated Charcoal – has pores that expand and trap toxins and bacteria, prevent the absorption of toxins; plus it is a wonderful make-up remover Tea Tree – kills bacteria Hydrogen Peroxide – not a natural ingredient, as in you can’t go into your garden and pick a bottle of hydrogen peroxide. If you look at what it is composed of, however, it is simply water plus oxygen – specifically H2O2. Bad bacteria are anaerobic meaning they thrive in a no to low oxygen environment. Hydrogen Peroxide kills bacteria by oxygenating your skin cells. It’s like killing them with oxygen. Cool, huh? Rooibos Extract – has large amount of antioxidants, soothes irritated skin, heals acne, prevents skin from being too oily; it also provides zinc which is thought to help acne as well. DMAE – Dr. Perricone made this nutritional substance famous. It helps to reduce inflammation but can also keep skin clear. Organic Fruit Extracts – contain AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) help bring new skin cells to the surface, which helps the complexion appear smoother. They also help to prevent new lesions from forming. Countless people, of all ages, have come into the shop struggling with acne. We know that not one product works for everyone, however, we have seen amazing results with combined use of Rafa Natural’s Clarifying Cleanser and Clarifying Astringent. Acne does not discriminate based on gender or age and neither do our products. Read some of our Customer Reviews at the bottom of the product page. To try this powerful but gentle cleanser go to Rafa Natural.

Juicing Recipe: Acne Fighter

Posted by Kim Williams on
Carrot, broccoli, apples

Daily I have women come into the store looking for solutions for acne.  It doesn’t matter if it’s adult onset acne or a teenager who’s struggling, it is a frustrating problem!  Fortunately, we do have an awesome natural cleanser & toner that helps most.  But improving your diet will only make it easier to clear up this problem. The most important nutrients in the fight against acne are:   Vitamin A, Zinc, Vitamin E and Essential Fatty Acids. Vitamin A – Doctors will often prescribe Accutane for acne.  It’s a very concentrated form of Vitamin A so it does work for many.  But it’s also very hard on the body.  You can get Vitamin A from sweet potatoes, carrots, dark leafy greens, cantaloupe, papaya & peaches. Zinc – Some studies have shown a link between a deficiency in zinc and acne.  If you are vegan/vegetarian, this could be the issue for you since zinc is found primarily in beef and dairy.  You can also get zinc from beans, nuts & pumpkin seeds, though, so add those to your diet if you are not already eating them. Vitamin E – This vitamin is a great antioxidant to fight free radicals and also helps to heal scars.  Food sources are peanuts, broccoli & avocados. Essential Fatty Acids – Acne occurs when glands over produce keratin and sebum.  They clog pores and cause breakouts.  Essential fatty acids cause something called healthy cell transference which helps dissolve fatty deposits that block pores and cause acne.  EFAs also help the skin to heal and repair.  Great sources are walnuts, pumpkin seeds, avocados, kale & spinach. I’ve listed a couple of different recipes for you to try: Acne Fighter #1 3 carrots (tops removed) 1 cup broccoli 1 cup spinach 1/2 green apple Acne Fighter #2 8 carrots 2 sweet potatoes 1/2 inch ginger Let me know if you have  juice you enjoy that fights acne and I’ll share it with others by posting it on here.
