Remember those 90s commercials for face toners? "Just splash your face with this product that will dry up those zits!" Of course they dried things up: they were mostly rubbing alcohol, which is also why they gave you that "nice" tingle. Ouch! Treat your skin the right way with real anti-inflammatory ingredients and natural oils to soothe rather than "tone". Dab and smear this Organic Spot Treatment Stick from cocokind on your most affected areas, wait, and then gently wipe off. You'll get healing from turmeric, soothing from organic sunflower oil, and prevention from tea tree oil. As part of your beauty routine, it can't get much healthier than this. ~
For the true, true stories behind this incredible skin-stuff, read on.
Smear some curry powder all over your face and I guarantee you will see amazing things happen. No, not for you? Even if this strategy technically would have merit, this is not exactly the kind of thing any of us would do (and that's a good thing). But you can get some pretty darn amazing results with a beauty stick that contains the best part of curry powder: turmeric. This skin repair stick from cocokind is called the TURMERIC Organic Spot Treatment Stick. Allow the antioxidants and calming power of turmeric to care for you both inside and out, bringing a smile to your face and health to any skin irritations.
Take this earthy and saffron colored stick from cocokind, pop the cap, and take a little whiff of that lovely golden balm. It doesn't smell perfumey and that's such a relief. What wafts up to your nose is a hint of sunflower oil and the briskness of tea tree oil. When it's time to make your face come alive, these oils will come through. Spread a little on any skin that irritated or blemished. Now move on to any skin that needs a little brightening, a little more balance and warmth. This little stick will help heal as well as balance out any inflamed hues. Turmeric, of course, also adds to the antioxidant capabilities of this treatment. After you've done your spot treatment, wipe off with a warm damp cloth and enjoy radiant skin for the rest of the day. Ahhhh.
Having my moisturizer take on a solid form is so convenient, too. Liquids and lotions can get goopy or even leak when they're trapped somewhere in your gym bag or purse. And we all know how "fun" it is to clean out a goopy bag. Using a moisture stick is the perfect solution, plus it allows the ingredient list to stay short and sweet. No need for stabilizers, liquifiers, and chemicals to make the goop look perfect every time you use it. (Incidentally, this is why most bar soaps are a better choice than liquid soap: less required emulsifiers.)
Take all this knowledge, along with your Paleo goodness, and make sure you don't leave the house without a cocokind stick. Your mother would be proud!
Why cocokind's TURMERIC Organic Spot Treatment Stick is so good for your skin
The WHY is turmeric and tea tree oil working together. First and foremost, the organic oils provide deep moisture from healthy fats! THEN, the organic turmeric works on any skin irritations, reducing inflammation and helping to heal. The organic sunflower oil as the prime ingredient is actually absorbed into the deeper layers of your skin, healing and moisturizing at the same time. Even by the time you wipe off the surface of your skin, these nutrients are doing their deep work.
Here are some of the amazing ingredients in this Spot Treatment Stick
The yellow or orange pigment of turmeric, which is called curcumin, is thought to be the primary pharmacological agent in turmeric. In numerous studies, curcumin's anti-inflammatory effects have been shown to be comparable to the potent drugs hydrocortisone and phenylbutazone as well as over-the-counter anti-inflammatory agents. Curcumin produces no toxicity and is great for your skin where everything is absorbed readily.
Tea Tree Oil
Otherwise known as Melaleuca (I'm on to you, essential oil company!), Tea Tree Oil is probably one of the most potent oils we can all keep in our medicine cabinet. It is a gentle astringent and anti-microbial. You can dilute it (as it is here with sunflower oil) and apply to all kinds of skin ailments for long-term healing and immediate relief. It works on blemishes, irritations, even wounds and things as difficult as psoriasis and fungal infections. Tea tree oil is truly the bomb when it comes to healthy and natural anti-microbial products.
How to use cocokind's Organic Beauty Sticks
Get excited, get simple: pop the cap, smear, sit, wipe off. Think of it like old school acne treatments, except this organic and nourishing balm will not damage your skin by waging war on your irritations. It will actually heal and prevent new issues from coming up. It's a soothing treatment, far from the alcohol days of toners and astringents.
Pick your color of stick, then apply to the parts that match the treatment needed: Beet is an amazing rouge and lip balm, giving just a hint of color. Turmeric helps even out skin colors and clears up acne with antibacterial power (just wipe off to avoid too much golden tone). And Matcha can be just the trick for under-eye shadows, bringing a new vibrancy to everything around your eyes.
