HEALTHY HAIR NUTRITION
A well-balanced diet can help keep hair healthy and beautiful. Recommended foods include salmon, which is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, iron and vitamin B-12 to strengthen locks and keep the scalp moisturized. Dark green veggies like spinach contain vitamins A and C to encourage sebum production (which acts as a natural "conditioner"), while eggs and poultry provide much needed protein, and cucumbers have hydrating water and growth promoting silica. Most helpful are nuts: Walnuts, cashews, pecans and almonds are all good sources of zinc to help prevent hair loss, while selenium-rich Brazil nuts keep tresses thick and shiny.
For naturally beautiful, strong and healthy hair, it is important to give your tresses the proper nutrition - inside and out. Pure Fijiʼs exotic blend of oils is not only a natural plant source of Omega 3 and 6ʻs, but also contains a natural bounty of other nutrients to nourish hair and scalp. These include natural antihistamines, antibacterials and anti-fungals to help soothe any sensitive scalp conditions.
Studies have also proven that regular use of a coconut oil product in hair reduces protein loss associated with styling and colouring hair. We recommend a weekly warm oil treatment with Pure Fiji Exotic Oil and daily use of Pure Fijiʼs Shampoo and Conditioner to treat hair to some deep hydration and a bounty of beneficial nutrients. A small amount of Exotic Oil or body butter can also be useful to smoothe down flyaway strands and assist with styling hair.
HOLIDAY HAIR CARE
The change in seasons doesnʼt just wreak havoc on skin—your hair is a victim, too. Cold weather can dehydrate the scalp and locks and wreak havoc with static electricity while wrapping up in scarves and hats can cause hair to tangle more frequently. The same goes for Summer Hair exposed to sun, wind and chlorine.
To help revive stressed tresses, the fastest way to better hair health is a conditioning treatment in the shower. Apply your regular conditioner post-shampoo, massage it in, then covering hair with a shower cap to help keep in the heat and steam. Leave the cap on for 5-minutes as you finish showering, then rinse for hair thatʼs soft, moisturized and tangle-free.
For hair thatʼs really had it rough over the holidays, we recommend a lovely warm scalp massage with Pure Fiji Exotic Oil as long as possible before your next shower - work the oil over the scalp and then through to the ends of the hair. If you can, leaving the treatment overnight is best, just pop a towel on your pillow to protect your linens. Shampoo as normal then apply conditioner with the shower cap twist for luxuriously hydrated and healthier hair.
SPRING CLEAN YOUR SKINCARE REGIME
Spring is a great time not only clean and de-clutter your home or office - give your beauty stash a once over as well! If you havenʼt used a product in the last 6 months, it might be time to toss it - the last thing you want is bacteria laden expired products on your skin and around your face. (By the way - because of itʼs natural antibacterial and anti-fungal properties the shelf life on most Pure Fiji products with normal use is two years.)
To help streamline even more, separate makeup from cosmetic tools (like eyelash curlers and powder brushes), and then sort your cosmetics by type of product, discarding any makeup with missing caps/tops or that smells bad. This will help not only get rid of any expired items, but will also give you a clearer sense of what you have in-stock—and what you might need to buy.
Because Pure Fijiʼs Facial range is suitable for most skin types, making the switch to Pure Fiji Facial Solutions is a great way to declutter your beauty closet. Natural anti-histamines and anti-inflammatories help soothe irritation and breakouts while skin is treated to deep hydration and a bevy of natural nutrients - all within just few, essential products to simplify your beauty routine. Finally, powerful plant actives native to the Fiji Islands work with the skins own processes to optimise skin health - regardless of your skin type.
SMALL CHANGES FOR A BIG DIFFERENCE
If youʼre aiming to eat a bit healthier this year or hoping to lose a few pounds, small changes can really make a difference. Thereʼs five key foods you should be incorporating into your diet—foods that, if eaten every day, will help control your appetite and encourage weight loss.
The wonder list includes: Raw Veggies, which are loaded with vitamins and bulky fiber (choose raw, non-starchy veggies such as carrots, peppers and leafy greens, which are great appetite suppressants); Rice or Nut Milk, which boast calcium, protein, vitamin D and fiber (do at least a serving a day); Green Tea, for the antioxidants and stressrelieving properties; Cinnamon (at least half a teaspoon a day) to regulate blood sugar levels, reduce cravings and lower bad cholesterol; and Lean Turkey, to boost the metabolism and maintain lean muscle tissue.
Just a healthy eating habits are important for good health, a good skincare regime everyday helps boost and maintain beautiful, glowing skin. We recommend augmenting your facial skincare routine with a little bit of Pure Dilo Oil every night under your Pure Fiji Night Creme to supercharge the healing processes that occur overnight. Maintain hydration throughout the day with your favourite Pure Fiji Body Mist and keep on top of problem areas by always keeping a Dilo Body Butter close to hand for spot applications. If you use these products every day to augment your regular routine, your skin will thank you for it.
READY, STEADY - GLOW!
Cooler weather doesn't necessarily have to result in a loss of that summertime glow. To keep skin dewy (and prevent dryness related damaged) when summer turns to fall, the first tip is to stay hydrated. Drinking enough water is important all year round, and just because the weather outside is cooler doesnʼt mean its ok to reduce water intake. Water helps the body cleanse and detoxify itself, disposing of all waste that's bad for your skin. Rehydrating regularly can also help to replenish the moisture lost from all those summer activities, like swimming in chlorine or salt water, and standing in the sun.
It might also be beneficial to switch from a lotion to a cream or butter. Creams and butters are usually richer and provide an additional barrier to help keep moisture. With built in deep hydration provided by Pure Fijiʼs exotic Oil blend, Pure Fiji Sugar Rub is the perfect product to maintain your summer glow over the winter months. This 3-in-1 product provides both a mechanical and a chemical exfoliation with natural alpha hydroxys when applied to pre-moistened skin. Dead skin cells and impurities are effortlessly eased away, and the botanical blend of oils absorbs deeply - leaving the skin refreshed and moisturised. Simply pat dry then, for an added hydration boost, we recommend using Pure Fiji Body Butter on any especially dry areas.
