In spring there are more hours of sunlight and the intensity of the ultraviolet rays increases. The atmospheric pressure varies often and affects our circulation. Biometeorology has proven the interconnection between the atmosphere and the biosphere, meaning between the weather, the seasons and our health.

This season is a time of transition, a very delicate period. Many people feel tired in the spring because of the changes in light and temperature – this phenomenon is called “meteor-sensitivity. It is extremely important to prevent skin damage with high quality organic skincare during the springtime.

Profound Nutrition

In spring it is very important to nourish the skin with bioactivators that improve cell functioning with dynamogenic action, meaning it increases the resistance of the tissue to outside aggressions. The prickly pear seed oil and the Neroli essential oil in MIDNIGHT REJUVENATION act in synergy with calming plant extracts to improve the skin’s energy.

The combination of VELVET HYDRATION and MIDNIGHT REJUVENATION is especially beneficial in the morning to hydrate the areas of the decolleté, nose, mouth and eyebrows. It is highly recommended in case of spring dermatitis thanks to the high concentration of rose and neroli.

Overnight Renovation

The high content of beneficial plant extracts in the masque INSTANT LIBERATION effectively treats impurities in the springtime. We recommend to apply it twice per week, massaging a thin layer into the skin and letting it act the entire night.

Preparing for Summer

Mix the oil serum MIDNIGHT REJUVENATION with a small amount of the cream JOUVENCE DIVINE and apply this potion on the lip and eye contour, neck and decolleté. Apply it three times per week in the evening and tap in gently.

We’ve all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But did you know that it is also key for beautiful skin?

A breakfast with protein and healthy fats provides you with long lasting energy in the morning. At the same time you should avoid to eat sugar, fructose, refined grains and grains with a lot of gluten.

We recommend a portion of protein from the following ingredients :

For vegans

  • Nuts like walnuts, pine nuts and almonds
  • Vegan cheeses
  • Vegetable spreads
  • Legumes like lentils and chickpeas in small quantities
  • Quinoa
  • Avocado

For non-vegans

  • Eggs: organic or free range  (number 0 or 1)
  • Goat and sheep cheese (also cow cheese, if it’s a good quality, organic cheese and if you are not cow lactose intolerant)
  • Roquefort (it’s a great source of B12, especially if you don’t eat meat)
  • Ham from organic agricultures
  • Fermented milk like kefir and yogurt
  • Small fish such as sardines or anchovies
  • Organic butter

Combine it with a small piece of organic whole grain bread made from sour dough. Ancient grains such as spelt, kamut or rye have less gluten are easier to digest. You can also have a beverage without sugar – coffee, tea, vegetable milk (use stevia from the health food store or coconut sugar to sweeten)

You can also have a fresh fruit, but do avoid juices, especially fruit juices, in the morning.

A breakfast low in sugar and fructose, and with the right Omega 3 and 6 balance will provide your body with the optimal nutrients and a radiant skin.

INSTANT LIBERATION is a purifying thermo-active masque that regenerates the skin overnight. The Kaolin clay is a powerful hydrolipidic skin regulator and is able to absorb environmental pollutants. At the same time, the medicinal clay purifies the skin while preserving the epidermal flora.

Kaolin is one of the most sustainable and pure minerals on earth. It equilibrates the pH levels, and moreover possesses remineralising, antioxidising and chelating powers. Indeed, through the elimination of homotoxins and heavy metals, it detoxifies the organism.

This highly beneficial mineral allows the skin to preserve the humidity inside the hydrolipidic film without clogging the pores. It softens the skin and exfoliates gently even the most sensitive skin types, helping to eliminate dead cells. This action is highly beneficial as our skin renovation cycles slows down due to age or health changes.

Originally, the name of this precious mineral comes from the first deposit discovered in China namely the Kaoling hill. Since ancient times the kaolin has been used for therapeutic aims and today it is used in a variety of fields such as the pharmaceutical sector, the alimentary sector, the cosmetic sector and the arts.

The Sahara desert – only the strongest can survive in such a harsh climate: extreme heat, cold, wind and almost no water. The few plants that can live there are true survival artists. The cactus Opuntia ficus-indica has adapted to survive in these most extreme climatic conditions, developing very beneficial adaptogenic properties to protect and regenerate the skin.

This cactus belongs to the adaptogenic plants, which helps the body’s adrenal system responds to physical, biological and chemical stressors.

The seeds of the Opuntia ficus-indica are cold pressed to extract the oil from its interior. To obtain 1 liter of the scarce and highly effective cactus oil, it is necessary to press the seeds of 1000 kilos of its fruits. Its extraordinary balance of Omega 3, 6, 7 and 9 is able to regenerate and revive all skin types, from dry to oily.

This golden elixir also contains the vitamins E and K that soften the skin, and contains moisturizing and nourishing fatty acids that prevent the formation of wrinkles, making prickly pear oil a powerful anti-ageing treatment. True organic cosmetics would be unimaginable without it.

It also contains betalains and phenolic compounds that have a great capacity to fight inflammations, which helps irritated skins. It also illuminates skin tone and reduces dark circles.

To combat the stress our skin is exposed to every day, we have selected the most powerful adaptogenic plants such as the cactus Opuntia ficus-indica as ingredients for our high-performance skincare products; among others the SMOOTH ADDICTION total hydration balm and the MIDNIGHT REJUVENATION restructuring oil serum.

 

It’s a bomb of nutrients and highly beneficial when you consume the correct amounts of it, and of course the same is true for your skin nutrition.

If a cream contains chemically modified fats it needs to be heated and diluted with up to 80% water to dissolve these solid substances. So not only does the cream lose actives, but it also has a very small amount of nutrients, to begin with. It is “Skin Fastfood” and very far from RAW. Unfortunately, you will find these type of creams with a “Certified Organic” label.

Our LE PURE emulsions are elaborated at human body temperature, 37 °C and we only use cold-pressed vegetable oils, plant extracts, and medicinal clay, which enables us to reduce the water content to 20-30 %. This means our products are highly concentrated and contain raw, ultrapotent plant nutrients to treat your skin with the best: high-performance, raw superfood.

The total hydration balm SMOOTH ADDICTION made out of cold-pressed cacao seed butter, coconut oil, and shea butter is the antidote to dry skin and wrinkles, this corrective balm hydrates, repairs, fights free radicals and provides instant relief. The balm is ideal nutrition for all skin types and alterations.

More than half of the products in the supermarket contain palm oil and maybe even your investment fund.

It is very hard to avoid palm oil today, as it is included in food, cosmetics, detergents and cleaning products. Even a conscious consumer almost can’t avoid using it, since there is only an obligation to declare palm oil on food products. In cosmetics and cleaning products palm oil is used in a modified way and therefore gets a new name such as Stearate SE or Cetearyl Alcohol. All LE PURE products are palm oil free and we support campaigns such as Zero Palmöl and are listed in their product database.

Below you can find a list of ingredients that contain or are likely to contain palm oils:

Are you investing in palm oil without knowing it?

A new report by the Friends of the Earth US (FoE) states that some of the US’ leading institutional investors, including pension funds, are potentially fuelling environmental and social harm by ploughing billions of dollars into the palm oil industry through opaque financial arrangements.

FoE and As You Sow have developed a new database where members of the public can search for the name of their fund to see what palm oil holdings, and the value of the assets, are in the portfolio.
