Empower 2017!

12/23/2016 Osmosis Skincare 0 Comments


 

It's officially a new year! We love the invigorating sense we feel once the clock strikes midnight on December 31st. We also LOVE our stance on NOT partaking in New Year's resolutions this year. Instead (in case you missed it) we are giving you, ourselves, and well... everyone permission to go easy on themselves this year asking that instead of a list of large goals, we are making small changes in our daily activities to better our health, wellness, and spirit.  Find out more about our #StartWithin - Empower campaign here.

Now that the New Year is here, we just wanted to check in with you dear readers, and see how everyone is doing with their daily adjustments?

We wanted to give you a few more tools to make this year, your most powerful yet!

1. Journal! Take note of your feelings, daily happenings, and thoughts written in your stream of conscious. Read every entry at the end of each week and revel in how creative, smart, and wonderful your brain is.

2. Move! Take daily walks for as long or as short as you want, just move! Put on your favorite tune and walk your block, dance around, or moonwalk down your driveway. Simply giving your body a little love by letting it move freely is all you need to feel empowered.

3. Be Well! Obviously we want your health and wellness to be as important to you as it is to us. Make an effort to get in your twice daily Elevate and DIM. If you have trouble remembering to take your supplements, don't be hard on yourself (trust us, we don't make our always daily doses either). Simply leave a cute sticky note in your bathroom as a reminder or set an alarm on your phone and assign the label Power Up to the alarm... then you'll know to down your supplements and maybe get a little giggle.

4. Talk to us! Go here, or here and use our 2017 hashtag #StartWithin and let us know what efforts you are making! We are here for you and can't wait to read about all of your healthy 2017 choices so far!

Winter Body Treatment

12/22/2016 Osmosis Skincare 0 Comments


Cracked heels, cut hands, bumpy dry winter skin... Do those sound like any winter body problems you've experienced? Us too. That is why we have put together a winter body treatment for you to treat yourself to weekly to keep your body moisturized, toned, and flake free.

Dry Brushing - A few times a week, use a dry brush to help gently exfoliate your skin. This technique also helps your lymphatic system push out toxins, and gets your circulation moving. We suggest dry brushing in the morning, before you shower. Starting at your feet, use very gentle strokes with a soft bristle body brush (be sure not to use a hard bristle brush, soft brushes keep the integrity of your skin intact). Follow your strokes up one leg at a time, towards your heart. Once both legs have been brushed, move onto your arms. Hold your arm above your head and follow with soft strokes down towards your heart. Gently brush your abdomen (up towards your heart) and your bum.

Water Oiling - Keep your favorite body oil (we love using Immerse and Coconut Oil) in the shower. Once you are done showering, apply your body oil to your skin while it is still wet. This helps the oil absorb and gives instant hydration to your skin after a hot shower.

Moisturize - While your oil is still damp, apply a body butter or lotion all over. Then walk around (or dance) in your birthday suit while it soaks in (maybe even take a look at your self in the mirror and say thank you to your incredible body)!

Do your oiling and moisturizing every day. Then once a week, follow these steps:

Multi Mask your Bod! Use our favorite enzyme mask Polish to treat your heels, hands, elbows, and knees. Apply to damp skin and massage with a few sprays of Clear or Clear Plus+. While that settles, apply Hydralift Firming Gel Mask to your upper arms and thighs for a toning, hydrating treatment your body will thank you for. Leave both on for 5 minutes, then shower off and follow with oiling and moisturizing.

Keep your Mineral Hydration Mist handy. We love using this mist to finish our makeup application, but it also makes for a great hydrator for the body. Just a few sprays during the day will keep your skin feeling hydrated.

Don't forget to use Immerse for your hair, nails, and heels. This Emu Oil-based hydration booster is multi-tasking wonder!

Empower

12/19/2016 Osmosis Skincare 1 Comments


Is it that time of year already? 2017 is just over the horizon and as it gets closer, we start reflecting on the past year - everything we accomplished, our highlights and every hurdle we jumped. The other thoughts that pop into our minds are the goals that may have fallen by the wayside. That's typically where the New Year's Resolutions start manifesting. While we love setting goals (crossing things off lists is, after all, a great feeling)... but how many of your New Year's Resolutions are re-do's from the past year, past two years or a re-run for the last decade? Yeah, us too! Don't fret, because this year, instead of making a list of goals most of us will forget about, we're choosing to ring in 2017 with one word in mind: EMPOWER. With this word, we're making a commitment to ourselves, to you, and to our well-being to be the best we can be without a list of New Year's Resolutions, because change starts within, not with a list. So join us in our #startwithin movement and say goodbye to New Year's Resolutions and say hello to the new, always improving and always fabulous you! 





Here are some ways, to start your New Year off right without the stress! 

1. Make small daily adjustments to better your internal, spiritual and emotional health. These adjustments should be small, building up momentum as the year (and you) move forward. Try meditating or journal every morning. Keep the thoughts positive. Try our Body Talk Meditation and start seeing results in the way you think of yourself.

2. Look at the past. That's right, take a long, hard look at all you accomplished in 2016. Make a list and revisit that list every time you are feeling stuck.

3. Say goodbye to the negative. While you look at your past years accomplishments, take note of the losses, misgivings and negative impacts from 2016. Once that list is complete give yourself an hour (no more and no less) to grieve, mourn, and accept the bad. Next, step outside and set that list on fire. In the words of Elsa, "let it go, let it go." Accepting the negative, letting it go and moving forward is an ideal task to complete before 2017 rolls in. Start fresh without having past "boo's" cloud your momentum and #StartWithin.

4. Positive affirmations. Write down, in one to two words on multiple sticky notes how you want to FEEL this coming year. Use our word, Empowered or Joyous, Content, Productive, Courage, Strength, Gratitude... the list goes on. Tape them up in places you will see everyday to remind yourself that every action you take should invoke one of those feelings.

5. Take small steps. Be sure to pay a little focus to small things that can impact your health in big ways. These steps should be easy to obtain, and should be taken day by day. It can be as small as flossing daily. Set a note up in your bathroom as a reminder. (DYK that flossing daily can decrease your risk for heart disease)? Keep the focus simple, unclouded and meaningful.

6. Gain gratitude. Let your grateful heart shine through your every pore. No matter what trials and wins you go through this coming year, know that they are stepping stones to personal growth. Throw shame out the window and hit your ups and downs head on. Share your gratitude with strangers. Tell someone at the coffee shop you like their hair, or that they look great today. Giving, after-all is the best way to make your heart sing.

Be empowered this coming year. Your life is in your hands alone and we want to help guide you to optimal wellness, inside and out. We are all in this together and we can't wait to see how you soar in 2017!

Let us know what you are doing to Empower yourself by using our 2017 hashtag: #startwithin.

Happy New Year to All from team Osmosis!

12/15/2016 Osmosis Skincare 0 Comments




Do you have an adventure seeker in your life? Sometimes gifting for those who are more interested in travel and seeking can be difficult, but don't worry we've got you covered. Give your thrill seeker items that will keep their adventurous spirit alive.

 

1 & 2. Modern Maps: Every adventure seeker wants to remember their escapades. Gift them with maps of where they have been or where they want to go. Not only do these make for great decor, but they help keep memories and wishes alive!

3. Compass Necklace: This beauty is the perfect gift for those on the go! Not only is it the perfect gift for those who find themselves on countless camping trips, it also looks great! Bonus? You can customize your astrological sign onto the necklace. It's the perfect reminder of where you have been and where you are going.

4. COFFEE: Who doesn't love (need) coffee? Any adventurer needs a little liquid energy in the morning to jump start their day. Gift them with coffee local to your city. Corvus Coffee offers a great monthly membership with fresh ground coffee delivered straight to your door at the beginning of each month... Yes, please!

5. Osmosis Adventure: Gift your seeker with all they need to stay well and healthy on their outings. Elevate will keep them alert with B-Vitamins while AC-11 will keep their skin healthy and protect them from the environment. Replenish will rejuvenate their skin after a long hard day of exploring and keep it protected from free radicals.  Energize Me is the perfect Harmonized Water to keep on their person at all times. It makes for a great pick-me-up in the middle of a slump! The last (and most important) thing they need for their thrill seeking is Protect. Shielding your skin from the sun's harmful rays is SO important no matter what time of year it is. Protect is the perfect mineral based SPF that works on even the most sensitive of skin. It also happens to moisturize and smells divine!

8 Ways to Winterize your Beauty Routine

12/08/2016 Osmosis Skincare 2 Comments




"Winter is coming!" Actually, winter is already here (but we'll use a GOT reference every chance we get). With the changing of the seasons, it is important to adjust your beauty, wellness, and skincare routine. Colder weather brings on a flurry of skincare concerns that are easy to combat with the right tools. Winter is also be a great time to pay mind to your emotional and mental health too, gloomy days and longer nights can make for a total a change in mood and behavior. Lucky for you, we've got you covered with 8 easy swaps to add into your daily routine to boost your winter health inside and out.

1. Add moisture! Immerse is one of our favorite products to use in conjunction with Quench or Quench Plus. Adding just half a pump of Immerse to your daily/nightly moisturizer will give your skin a huge boost of hydration and moisture. The emu oil is your winter skin superhero, which also makes for a great hair treatment as well.

2. Gently exfoliate. Adding in a treatment that safely sweeps away dead skin build up will keep your winter skin from flaking, and keep it in tip-top health. We love using our Polish mask once a week to gently exfoliate with the use of enzymes. We don't suggest using a harsh scrub as it can compromise the surface and health of the skin, that's why we love this cranberry enzyme mask which gives us a fresh, hydrated complexion.

3. Slather with Refresh PM. This thick, balmy eye treatment will keep your sensitive eye area flake free. It also makes for an incredible lip and cuticle treatment. Load your lips, cuticles, and gently pat a bit around your eye orbital for a deep, moisturizing treatment.







4. Keep your spirit up! Seasonal depression tends to rear it's ugly head this time of year and we want you to know that you are not alone. We are so grateful that we have Body Talk Harmonized Water and Elevate to keep your mental health in shape for the long winter months. Body Talk neutralizes emotional effects on the body and Elevate will pump you full of B Vitamins giving you higher energy (without harmful stimulants), which will help keep your brain happy and healthy.

5. Up your water intake. Yep, it's that easy to calm inflammation inside and out. Increasing your water intake during these long, cold months will help keep your body functioning. It is important to flush out those toxins we tend to take in during the holiday season so our skin can stay healthy. Water is your perfect detoxing supplement!

6. Switch foundations. During the hot months, powder foundations tend to be the bee's knees. But once winter hits, it is smart to try switching your formula. Our CC Cream delivers coverage, protection, and more moisture than its powder sister, making it the perfect swap for winter.

7. Get your Clear on! Many of us at Osmosis have multiple bottles of Clear or Clear Plus in multiple places. From our purse or car to our desk drawer, we love using this refreshing spray to revive tired mid-day skin. Clear and Clear Plus will give your complexion a nice re-up of hydration. Use it during the day to help your skin combat dryness.

8. Use a sleep pack. For those with extra dry, extra sensitive skin, use our Hydralift Mask as a sleep pack. Pat a small amount all over your face, then hit the pillow. Once a week give your skin a treat with this overnight, hydration hack.

10 Ways to Prep your Spirit for a Stress-Free Holiday Season

11/28/2016 Osmosis Skincare 0 Comments


You're a mean one Mr. (or Mrs.) Grinch. That's how a lot of us may feel when the holidays roll around. The stress and to-do lists seem never-ending and by the time the actual celebration arrives, it's almost (almost) too difficult to enjoy it. Don't worry though, we've devised a plan to keep you sane and calm this entire holiday season. Without further adieu (we know there is no time to waste), here is our top 10 things to do to prep yourself for the holidays!

1. Be a list diva! Make detailed lists that are broken down into 3 subjects:
    Your List: Make a list that gives you tasks that will treat your spirit. Schedule a manicure, a massage and facial, and schedule some quiet time for you to read, journal, or just sit in calm silence.
    Shopping List: Make an all inclusive shopping list that details what you need in regards to your holiday food shopping, gift shopping (broken down by person and budget per person), and
    Task List: Write down your tasks (even the most mundane ones) like wrapping gifts, going to the post office, and cleaning duties you may have to prep for holiday hosting.

2. Ask for help. Don't be afraid to turn any task into a group activity with your family and friends. Helping each other out not only puts you in the holiday spirit, BUT you are also able to pull a Mary Poppins and make all jobs a fun game!

3. Say No! We all tend to over-schedule ourselves during the months of November and December. With holiday parties and people in town visiting, it is important to prioritize the events that will bring joy to your life. The one's that don't can be ditched. Saying no is easier than you think, so don't sweat making the choice to do it!

4. SLEEP. Schedule sleep for yourself (seriously). Put it in your calendar and note what time you want to be in bed every night. We suggest a 10 PM bedtime every night so you can ensure that you can grab a full 8 hours of sleep.

5. Treat your skin like you always do, with love. In other words, don't skimp on your skincare just because you are busier than normal. Use our National Healthy Skin Month routine for easy and quick steps that won't steal time away from your schedule.

6. Take your supplements. Don't forget to take your DIM, Complete and Elevate to keep your mind, body, and metabolism firing on all cylinders. Also take some time to utilize Energize Me Harmonized Water in the morning and Relax Harmonized Water in the evening for some balance.

7. Take a whiff. Have your favorite calming essential oil on hand everyday to take a quick aromatherapy break when you need it. We love to take a moment to smell some Lavender and Sandalwood.

8. Work out. Give yourself 30 minutes every morning to get your blood flowing. Keeping your heart healthy and your body moving will reduce stress immediately!

9. Create a competitive analysis to get your money's worth. Once you have your gift list complete, hop online and give yourself 2 hours to find the best deal on the items you want to gift. Often times we end up spending more than we needed to, so do your due diligence to keep your budget in tact.

10. Glam it up! You know the saying Look Good, Feel Better? It's true! Put on a glamorous face to boost your confidence and give you the feeling that you are invincible. Try our holiday look featuring our holiday color kit!

Use these steps to keep yourself calm, cool, and collected this holiday season. Completing these tasks will make you feel productive, accomplished and above all else... AWESOME!

11/17/2016 Osmosis Skincare 0 Comments


Thanksgiving can be a bit of a stressful time. Let's face it, once November 1st hits, the holiday season is officially here and it gets real! Our skin takes a big beating when we are stressed, so we wanted to gift you with a Thanksgiving Facial you can do at home to keep your skin glowing and healthy for turkey day!

Once your turkey prep is done the night before Thanksgiving, take 30 minutes for yourself and do the following:

Pre-Step 1: Pour yourself a glass of wine or your favorite mocktail to enjoy while you give yourself a little glow.

Step 1. Gently massage some water onto your skin and follow with massaging a pump of Cleanse into your skin. Use your fingers in a circular motion to lift dirt and debris from the skin and rinse.

Step 2. Double cleanse with Deep Clean. Let Deep Clean sit on your skin in a rich lather for 60 seconds before rinsing. Rinse skin and pat dry with a soft towel.

Step 3. Give your skin a pre-holiday treat with our cranberry enzyme Polish mask. Apply to your skin then massage with a spritz of Clear Plus. Let the mask sit for 15 minutes. Then rinse with warm water and pat dry.

Step 4. Apply one pump or Catalyst AC-11 mixed with one pump of Calm (or your favorite Vitamin A Serum) and massage into skin with Clear Plus. 

Step 5. Apply a bountiful amount Hydralift Firming Mask to your face, neck, and décolleté. Allow to sit on the skin for 10 minutes, then rinse and pat skin dry.


Step 6. Apply 2 pumps Replenish mixed with one drop of Immerse all over face, neck, and decollété. Finish by spraying 2-3 pumps of Clear Plus onto skin and massage the serums in gentle, sweeping motions.

Step 7. Pat yourself on the back for being awesome! Now, get some pretty, glowing sleep before the madness hits!



When you wake up the next morning, give your skin a light cleanse and reapply one pump of Replenish followed by a pump of Quench for a hydrated, dewy finish.

We hope you all enjoy your Thanksgiving Holiday!

Let's Get Real: Body Talk

11/16/2016 Osmosis Skincare 0 Comments




How many negative thoughts do you have a day? How many self-judging thoughts do you have a day? We know that positive thinking is much harder and takes more effort to obtain than negative thinking. Negative thinking is easy, judging yourself rather than complimenting yourself is also WAY too easy. We currently live in a world, with all of its beauty and wonder, that prompts us to be unhealthily hard on ourselves. We see what we think we are supposed to be on a daily basis whether it be in the media, heard on the radio, or told to us by those around us. We forget oh-so-often to explore and be curious about what we want to be. After all, being open to yourself is the most vulnerable position to be in, and it's scary.

From work stress, relationship stress, and social stress, it is incredibly hard to cut yourself some slack. Instead we tend to tell ourselves, we can't do things because we are not thin enough, smart enough, strong enough, organized enough, healthy enough... you know, that list is endless but Osmosis is saying enough with feeling like not enough!  Negative thoughts have quite an effect on our bodies. Acne, anxiety, hair loss, rosacea and a slew of other symptoms can be linked to negative thinking which in turn, causes stress on the body. So let's remove that word [enough] from our vocabulary for one month, and see how we feel? That's a good start to positive thinking and we now have another tool to guide you on your way to a positive spirit, a healthy mind, and a confident heart.

We couldn't be more proud to introduce our newest member of the Harmonized Water Family, Body Talk. We have utilized our frequency cancellation tool to effectively and gently aid your mind into canceling the negative effects that negative thoughts have on your body. The benefits of digesting Body Talk may range from a temporary emotional detox to improvements in conditions that are affected by negative thought patterns. Let Body Talk help you conquer your thoughts of fear, anger, and sadness. Let Osmosis, guide you through a Be Kind to Yourself Meditation that practicing in conjunction with taking Body Talk will set you on a path to healing.

We want to challenge you to complete our Body Talk, Body Love Meditation. Feeling positive about your body and wellness is important to us. Follow along and enjoy the benefits of positivity. For an extra grounding, take three deep breaths while smelling some Sandalwood essential oil before starting your meditation.

*Sit high on your seat, pushing your tailbone into the ground beneath you.

*Cross your legs and rest your hands, palms up on your knees.

*Close your eyes, take one deep breath and push all the air out through your mouth.

*Take 7 staccato breaths in through your nose. Hold your breath for 7 counts and release your breath in staccato counts of 7 through your mouth, releasing all of the air on your 7th exhale. Repeat this process for 10 minutes.

*While breathing, tune into the the parts of your body and mind that cause you discomfort.

*Replace any negative thoughts towards those areas with positive, grounding words that give you insight to your personal strength. For example, if you don’t like your legs, remind yourself of their strength, power, and ability to carry you. If you struggle with depression, remind yourself just how special and deep your brain is.

Do this meditation daily, focusing on different parts of your body and mind each time. Once you are done with your meditation, take 5 pumps of Body Talk. Be kind to yourself, be kind to others, and stay open on your journey to wellness.

Keratosis Pilaris: How to Get Rid of it for Good!

11/07/2016 Osmosis Skincare 0 Comments




How annoying are those little red bumps that hang out on your arms, thighs, and bum? We know, they are a simple nuisance that tend to ignore any treatment you've tried to get rid of them. Well, we know that dealing with KP (Keratosis Pilaris) can be incredibly tough, especially when you don't see the results you want. Luckily for you we have the perfect prescription to treat your KP right at the source and get rid of it for good!

We love that we are able to provide you with treatments that target your every skincare concern and Keratosis Pilaris is one of them. Let's first get a quick lesson on what KP is. Keratosis Pilaris, while harmless is caused by keratin buildup. Keratin is a protein we all have which aids in protecting our skin from infections. Once the build up starts to get overbearing, our hair follicles become plugged causing small, dry bumps. That is KP on the surface. Internally, yeast buildup is the root that causes the keratin buildup on the outside thus, the life cycle of KP. In order to really treat this issue you must start from the inside. Here is our Keratosis Pilaris protocol:


On the Inside: Start with Skin Perfection Harmonized Water. The frequencies in this water will target gut issues like candida and harmonize the overproduction all while giving skin an overall, internal health check.

On the Outside: Treat bumps with a pump or two of Rescue. This epidermal repair serum will help treat the inflamed bumps, calm redness and kill toxins within the bumps. Give a deeper activation of Rescue with Clear Plus+. After applying Rescue to the needed area, spray the affected area with 2-4 spritzes of Clear Plus+ and massage into your skin.

KP takes time to clear, but it is possible! This trifecta of inner and outer treatments will send you on your way to smooth, bump-free skin. For further detoxing of yeast and sugar (which can help speed up the results) check out our favorite fall detox methods!
