Foods That Help Your Skin

By | Uncategorized

Last month we wrote about identifying problem areas through face mapping to determine the cause of acne. Many of these problem areas were caused by diet – liver function and digestion play a huge role in how your skin looks!

They say that losing weight and getting healthy is 80% diet and 20% exercise, and it works just the same for skincare! Though you can reduce acne through topical products and medicines, getting to the root of the problem will save you from stress over acne later. The best way to do this is through what you eat, and there are a few foods that can really boost the glow of your skin and help fight breakouts. Here are a few to try:

  1. Water: This may seem silly and obvious, but it is so important that we had to include it! Drinking more water helps flush out toxins, gives you more energy, and hydrates your cells. When paired with a good moisturizer, drinking more water will make your skin look more refreshed than ever!
  2. Leafy greens: Dark leafy greens are packed with vitamins and antioxidants that keep your skin nourished. Use a mask with those same nutrients and your skin look healthy and even-toned.
  3. Berries: Blueberries, raspberries and blackberries are also full of great antioxidants, but they also help combat cravings for your skins number one enemy: refined sugar. These tiny fruits are sweet enough to satisfy your need for sugar, without all of the breakouts that processed sweets can cause.
  4. Avocado: This food is one of the top Instagram-able toast toppings, and is also great for your skin! Avocados contain those good fats that ward off those dark under eye circles and hold moisture. Eat more avocados and use your daily eye cream to decrease signs of aging and look more energized than ever.

Problem Areas: What They Mean

By | skincare routine

We all know that the status of your skin is often affected by outside factors like diet and environment. These factors can cause problem areas for many people, especially if the change is sudden. If you’re completing your skincare routine as you normally would, but find your skin breaking out in places it never has, there is probably a reason why! Here are a few areas where you may get an acne breakout due to a lifestyle change, and what the cause could be:

Forehead and nose: Sudden breakouts on the forehead are most often linked to diet. Whether you’re having digestive problems or have been eating too much greasy food, what you’re putting in your body shows up on your skin. Try to pinpoint what has changed in your diet lately, or consider seeing a nutritionist to help you narrow down the culprit. As always, remember to drink plenty of water throughout the day to flush out toxins and keep your liver happy!

Chin: Most acne occurring on the chin is said to be caused by a change in hormonal balance. For women, this is most likely because of “that time of the month,” but it could also be from dairy intake, or even oils from resting your chin in your hands or putting a dirty cell phone to your ear. Be sure to avoid touching your face throughout the day, keep your phone screen clean and jumpstart your deep cleaning days before your period begins.

Cheeks: Acne on your cheeks could be from any number of things, but is mostly likely due to air pollution or general grime. Your cheeks reflect your respiratory system, so if you live in an urban environment or are a smoker, try to install measures in your home that keep the air cleaner than the environment outdoors. If you live in an area with great air quality, your cheek acne could be from pillow cases, phone screens or makeup brushes – try washing these items more frequently.

While this guide may help you pinpoint the causes of breakouts, they won’t help you get rid of them immediately. For shorter term results, we suggest our deep-cleansing mask followed by a toner to clean pores and rid of acne!

Keep Your Skin Radiant Through Winter

By | skincare routine

Have you ever wondered why your skin is so radiant during the summer? If you live near the ocean, it’s probably because of the salt water! Even though you might immediately want to jump in the shower after spending a day at the beach, the water is actually helping your skin.

The ocean contains a high percent of salt, a natural exfoliator, stress reducer and detoxifier. In the ocean you’ll also find minerals like chloride, sulphate, magnesium and calcium. There is a reason that swimming in the ocean used to be recommended to heal! However, summer is gone and temperatures outside are dropping. For most of the country, it is already too cold to go for a dip in nature’s spa, and our skin will no longer reap the benefits that come from salt water.

So how can you continue to get the same benefits of ocean water on your skin when summer ends? Luckily, we have access to products made with salts straight from the Dead Sea, the most majestic body of water packed with over 21 essential minerals that help cleanse and detoxify our bodies. The Dead Sea is like the ocean, only amplified in its healing properties!

Here are a few products available that allow you to do just so:

Bloom Mud Mask: Our mud mask uses mud from the Dead Sea, and contains many of the same properties as water from the ocean you frequent during the warmer months. Using this mask one to two times per week will keep your skin glowing!

Purifying Mud Soap: This soap has the same helpful minerals as our mud mask, but with the added benefits of natural coconut and olive oils so keep your skin soft and moisturized. This bar can be used daily to achieve great skin 24/7!

Almond Scrub: Packed with Maris Sal (dead sea salts), this scrub is both exfoliating and detoxifying! Sea salt helps to balance oil production, retain moisture and reduce acne from bacteria! This scrub is great for areas like elbows and knees that can become dry and flakey during the winter.

At Bloom Mineral Beauty, we are excited to share the joy of health and beauty with our customers. Whether you want to enhance the beauty of your face or body, we can help bring your skin to life and let your inner beauty and confidence shine through.

Take the “Scare” Out of Your Skincare Routine

By | skincare routine

Is your skincare routine a nightmare, causing you more harm than good? Do you find that your skin is often irritated after a cleansing or mask, leaving behind frightening blemishes or redness? Halloween should be the only spooky part of October, and if your routine isn’t doing what it should, it’s time to find a solution to take the “scare” out of it. Let’s review a few essentials:

Ingredients: Just because a friend or coworker has raved about a product that worked great for them, doesn’t mean that same product will work for you. If you’ve had adverse reactions to a certain ingredient before, be sure to check labels when you purchase new items. You should also always test new products on a small area of skin before applying it fully. If you’re having a bad reaction but aren’t sure what is causing it, compare the label to other products you use to determine which ingredient may be at fault.

Frequency: Too much of anything is bad, and that is the case for skincare as well. Your skin’s natural oils are important, and scrubbing them away too frequently, or using an exfoliant too often can cause irritation and dryness. Pay attention to how your skin reacts throughout the week – you may want to reduce or increase the number of times you cleanse.

Order: The order in which you use products can absolutely affect your skin! For instance, you wouldn’t want to skip out on a moisturizer after doing a mask and cleanse- talk about dry skin! Ideally, you’ll want to use any masks or exfoliation products first, use a gentle cleanser after, and then apply a toner and moisturizer.

At Bloom Mineral Beauty, we are excited to share the joy of health and beauty with our customers. Having a balanced skincare routine with natural ingredients is key, and we can help bring your skin to life.

A Guide To Exfoliation

By | Uncategorized

Exfoliation is another term we hear often but may never really understand. With so many
products on the market and magazines that give opposing advice, choosing an exfoliant and a
routine can be a nightmare. At Bloom, we agree that exfoliants are a great addition to anyone’s
skincare routine, and have created this handy guide to help you add it to yours:

Which Product to Choose: While some exfoliants can be great for one person’s skin, they can
have adverse effects on another’s. Check the product to see if it is gentle enough to use on the
face, or if it is meant for the rest of your body. Be sure to check the ingredients for items that
haven’t agreed with your skin in the past, and test the product on a small area of skin before
applying it to a larger area. Products with more natural ingredients, like our Hydrating Almond
Scrub, are always a safer bet!

How often to Use: Exfoliating too much can be harmful to your skin, causing redness and
irritation that can take days to clear. Dermatologists recommend exfoliating 2-3 times a week,
and even those with great skin can benefit from this routine. Some products are made as a
scrub, while others are intended as a mask, so always check individual packaging for additional
instructions. Exfoliate on days with high exercise and activity, and on days with acne flare-ups.

What to Pair It With: Exfoliants are generally rougher in order to clear pores and remove dry
skin cells, and replenishing your skin after use is important. We suggest using a GENTLE CLEANSER
afterward to remove any excess dirt from pores, followed by a toner to balance your skin’s pH,
and a moisturizer for softness and hydration.

Achieve healthier, happier skin by exfoliating on your next self-care day! At Bloom Mineral
Beauty, we are excited to share the joy of health and beauty with our customers. Whether you
want to enhance the beauty of your face or body, we can help bring your skin to life. Visit our

products.

Why Should You Use A Toner?

By | Uncategorized

If you have looked into the vast world of skincare, chances are that you have come across a ‘toner.’ You may have spotted it while browsing through a beauty supply store, read about it in someone’s skincare routine, or seen it in our line of products.
Perhaps someone recommended a toner to you- a friend or your dermatologist. If you’ve always wondered what they are and why exactly you should use one, look no further:

A toner is a water-based product designed with added ingredients to supplement your skincare routine after a cleanser. Toners are very gentle and there is a wide- variety to choose from based on your skin type. For example, our Balancing Facial Toner is made with a rare blend of Dead Sea mineral salts, soothing cucumber, and chamomile extracts. Because chamomile extract is an excellent source of vitamin B, and cucumber extract contains essential proteins, toner helps replenish your skin after using a cleanser.

So what exactly does a toner do? It helps remove any excess dirt that your cleanser may have not been able to reach, or any lingering product from the cleanser itself. It also aids in rebalancing the pH of your skin, which can change during cleansing. With a rebalanced pH, your skin is less likely to be damaged by environmental factors like sun and pollution. Overall, using a toner will leave your skin rehydrated, more clean, and prepared for whatever the next day brings.

How To Maximize The Benefits Of Your Mud Mask

By | skincare routine

A facial mud mask seems easy enough – apply, rinse, reap benefits. However, when applied under the right conditions, you may be able to harness more from the natural minerals within the mask. Try these tips paired with our Purifying Mud Mask and see your skin glow even more:

Always start with a clean slate. Be sure that you have rinsed off any makeup or dirt that may be lingering on your skin before applying the mask. Our PURIFYING MUD MASK is packed with natural minerals like magnesium, calcium, potassium, and iron, which have been shown to aid in the regeneration of cells, oil breakdown, and skin hydration. These minerals are essential to keeping your skin hydrated without looking oily, but cannot reach down deep into pores when outer dirt blocks the way.

Keep an eye on the clock. Washing a mud mask off too early or too late may prevent your skin from properly utilizing all of the benefits of the mask. Too early, and you haven’t let the properties sink in. Leave it on too long, and it might not leave behind the moisturizing properties from the minerals within. Our Purifying Mud Masks works optimally when left on for 10 to 20 minutes.

Follow Up. Though mud masks can be great on their own, they work best when followed with a toner and moisturizer. Applying these products after your mask is rinsed away keeps its effects longer lasting. We suggest a gentle TONER to compliment the pigment-balancing properties in the mud mask, and a MOISTURIZER to keep your skin happy and ready for the day.

Follow these tips and your mud mask will keep your skin looking more even-toned and hydrated than it has before!

What Makes Bloom Mineral Different?

By | skincare routine

As we talk with customers around the country, we appreciate the amazing feedback from customers who are grateful to find a beauty line that works for their skin. Whether it’s a busy mom who wants a little pampering, or an industry blogger like Bell de Couture, Bloom Mineral Beauty products are getting rave reviews.

“The MOISTURE SHIELD(my fave of all!) is enhanced with a rare blend of Dead Sea minerals with Hyluronic Acid (so good for the skin!). It penetrates and creates a barrier to balance skin and help it to maintain ultimate hydration. It leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth and radiant all day long. Lastly is the SHIELDING EYE CREAM– I love a good eye cream! This vitamin-enriched blend of Dead Sea Mineral Salts, Aloe Vera, Chamomile, Calendula, Green Tea and Grape Seed helps provide long-lasting hydration for dry, delicate skin. I’m always after a good eye cream that will help refresh my tired eyes and help fight signs of aging!“ – Belle de Couture

Even more than the products, though, what really makes Bloom Mineral Beauty different – and strikes a chord with our customers – is that the product is manufactured in a predominantly Mulsim country, by a Christian woman, who empowers women both through employment and creating high quality products. People love that not only did a woman found and grow a successful manufacturing company in a male-dominated industry. She did so in Jordan, where there are even more challenges for a woman-owned business.

There’s a reason Bloom Mineral Beauty products are available in over 40 countries around the world, and it’s a strong, motivated woman in charge of producing natural skin care products that get results. When we say Bloom is By Women, For Women, it’s a literal statement, and one we are proud of.

There are lots of options on the market for skin care, but few companies that embrace and empower women in the manner of Bloom. If you haven’t already, give us a try (no risk! we even have a satisfaction guarantee) and help us empower women everywhere.

Getting The Most Out Of Your Beauty Routine

By | Uncategorized

Now that you have invested time and money in the perfect skin care line, it’s time to get the most out of your beauty routine. Here are a few tips to make this last as long as possible, leaving you more time and money for summer cocktails and cookouts.

Always follow the order of use recommended by the manufacturer. In developing beauty products, the experts spend a lot of time determining the best order of application for the customer. At Bloom Mineral Beauty the products were designed to work best in this order – Mask-Exfoliate-Cleanse-Eye Cream-Shield – giving you the most benefits and biggest return on your beauty investment.

Always apply the product by recommended usage and amount. It is important that you are using each product in the Bloom line appropriately. Most of our products only need no more than a pea-sized amount. Bloom products contain high quality ingredients from the Dead Sea and a little goes a long way.

Always pay attention to the order of application and layer. As mentioned above, Bloom Mineral Beauty has created an ideal skin care system for you. Stick with the correct order, apply the allotted amount, and be sure to layer. Bloom products work best when used together, they were designed to complement each other. When you use your mask and exfoliator as suggested, the cleanser in return is able to get deeper and work better. The last layer should be our moisture shield followed by your favorite SPF. Applying this as the final layer to clean skin allows the shield and sunscreen to sink in and provide a protective barrier against the elements.
