Washing your hands is a definite must. Before eating, after sneezing or coughing, after cleaning the dinner table, before sleeping. World Health Organization recommends you wash your hands with soap and water at least 20 seconds. While all that is good, the frequent washing is a recipe for dry hands.
Elemi Oil: The Skin-Care Ingredient You Didn't Know You Need
What happens to your hands?
Intact skin acts as a protective barrier. Frequent exposure to water and the use of oil-stripping soaps and drying alcohol found in soaps and hand sanitizers diminish the healthy fatty compounds in the top layer of the skin. The result is an impaired skin barrier. In addition to the irritation and discomfort of dry hands, cracks and breaks in skin could lead to an increased risk of superficial skin infections.
A daily beauty routine is one of the easiest ways to ensure both long-term skin health and a glowing complexion. There are beauty products that come from natural sources, and there those that are chemical-based. The former can do wonders to you, while the latter may cause more harm than good. Natural and organic skin-care products, in particular, combine essential vitamins, botanicals, and minerals that heal and restore our skin—without harming our bodies or the earth.
We're all familiar with beauty ingredients like aloe, shea butter, caffeine, chamomile, jojoba oil, and pili oil as some of top natural and organic skin-care ingredients to look for in beauty products. Probably one of the lesser known ingredients we must all take note of—and can be the skin-care ingredient you're going to need—for a moisturized and firmer skin is elemi oil.
What is ELemi Oil?
Derived from the sap of the Pili tree, elemi oil is tapped the same way maple trees are tapped for syrup. It oozes a sticky resin of which the elemi oil is refined from the resin.
Elemi oil has numerous benefits for the skin. This rare and potent extract tones, firms, and reduces fine lines, and literally lifts from within when you massage it into the skin. It also has copious amounts of elemol and elemicine, which makes this anti-bacterial. Studies show that elemi oil is 99% anti-bacterial, which makes it a force to reckon with for common skin woes like acne. Together the exclusive blend of pili and elemi oils are a beauty arsenal, a must-have on any beauty shelf.
A must-have product that will give you moisturizing and firming benefits while cleaning your skin without any harm: Clean & Green Antibacterial Hand Soap from Pili Ani.
