    How To Care for Mature Skin

    Every face tells a story. A smile, a frown, a lifted eyebrow - our faces are expressive and help us connect with those around us. Our faces are also on the front line, bombarded by the sun, air pollution, and dirt. When we are working too hard or skipping our daily doses of vitamins and water, our faces show this, too. Whether we’re smiling, laughing, crying or puzzling, our faces deserve the best care we can give. Nurturing our faces also lifts our mind and spirit along the way. Having a consistent skincare routine and great products to use will give you the extra edge you need to keep your skin looking and feeling its best.

    What processes occur in our body as we age, and how can we stop them? These are the most frequent questions not only in mature age, but also with younger women who are increasingly proactive about their future appearance. Let's start with what changes take place in our skin with the passage of time. 
    First and foremost the content of collagen and elastin in the skin decreases. These substances serve as a kind of scaffolding, they are responsible for making the skin firm and elastic.

    Another problem is the reduced volume of hyaluronic acid, responsible for retaining water in the dermis. Its low content results in the appearance of wrinkles not only on the face, but also the neck and chest. Over time, elasticity of the skin decreases and it slowly loses its natural regenerative abilities.
    Regardless of the age, your skin also has to fight against its external enemies – alcohol and coffee when consumed in excessive amounts, drastic slimming treatments, cold and/or dry air, sunlight and stress.

    The three main factors affecting your skin's condition are:
    1. Balanced diet
    2.Oxygenation
    3.Rest

    Our skin's condition in maturity is not just a matter of genes and cosmetics, but also how we treated it and fed it throughout our lives. Thus:
     Eat as many raw fruits and vegetables as possible
     Always go for unprocessed products
     Choose dark, whole-grain breads, rice, pasta
     Oxygenate yourself by enjoying sports or taking brisk walks (about 30 min 3 x a week)
     Sleep well – eight hours of sleep is necessary to restore the skin’s power of self-regeneration

    For mature skin; anti-aging skin care focused on active stimulation of collagen and elastin for self-renewal will provide comprehensive care to improve your skin condition. Keep good a balance between a healthy lifestyle, a balanced diet, supplementation and your skin will reward you with a beautiful appearance!

  • From KOI Beauty Bar to Koi Botanicals

    From KOI Beauty Bar to Koi Botanicals
    I’m very confident that 2021 is going to be a wonderful year because Koi is growing and changing to serve you better! I’ve recently earned my Master Herbalist certification! I’m combining this new credential with my degree in biology; 17 years ‘of experience in clinical and research laboratories, Health and Wellness certification and lifelong dedication to proven natural processes, botanical ingredients and current skincare science to deliver something better, bigger, stronger and more beautiful.
    The pain and hardships of 2020 have inspired me to work harder than ever to apply all my experience, knowledge and training to develop Koi products that are the gold standard for effective, all natural and socially responsible skincare! To properly reflect this subtle, but important shift, by February 2021, we will change our name from KOI Beauty Bar to Koi Botanicals. Along with our new name, you will see a higher energy company with updated formulations and exciting NEW products and services.
    The Updated Lineup 
    Turmeric Cleansing Bar will become SOOTHE Turmeric Infused Artisan Soap.
    Wheatgrass Cleansing Bar will become RENEWAL Wheatgrass Infused Artisan Soap.
    Purple Corn Cleansing Bar will become RESTORATIVE Purple Corn Infused Artisan Soap.
    Bare Cleansing Bar will become GENTLE Nourishing Artisan Soap for Sensitive Skin.
    What is Changing? 
    Hydrating Face Cream will become Restorative Beauty Moisturizer. Reformulated with a base of Rose Water, we use the finest and freshest ingredients we could find, for a more effective beauty formula. Great for all skin types.
    Pore Tightening Toner will become Refreshing Toner. Our toner will still have the peppermint you love! And with the addition of Witch Hazel, you’ll find a more effective formula that will positively impact the appearance of pores, while controlling oil. 
    Tree of Life Oil will become Flawless Facial Oil. This will still be our prized Baobab Seed Oil, but we are infusing it with Hibiscus! This encourages an all-round younger, smoother looking complexion.
    What’s NEW? 
    Hydrating Eye and Face Serum! After much research, we felt it was necessary to add a serum to our collection. You can use serum after cleansing, but before moisturizing with the intent of delivering powerful ingredients directly into the skin. Serums are particularly suited for this because they are made up of smaller molecules that penetrate deeply into the skin to deliver a very high concentration of active ingredient. We added powerful ingredients such as Vitamin C to fight free radicals and support natural collagen production along with hyaluronic acid to plump your skin and reduce wrinkles! 
    Herbal Jelly! The un-petroleum jelly! Petroleum is a byproduct of the oil refining and petroleum jelly is highly refined. It can clog pores, and trap bacteria under the skin. Our herbal jelly has only plant oils and herbs making it an effective and better choice over petroleum jelly where intense moisturization is needed. 
    Last But Not Least
    As Koi was restructured, it was important that we work with other small businesses. I am proud to say that nearly 80% of the companies we work with to bring you the most effective skincare are small, family run, female controlled and minority owned businesses!! So, when you buy from Koi Botanicals, not only are you supporting my small business, you are supporting other deserving, hardworking companies as well! 
    Thank you for your continued support! And please be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram and sign up for our newsletter for the latest Koi news, great deals and FREE stuff...and remember to Keep It Beautiful! 
    XOXO
