Aftersun anyone? – #SkinliciousSaturdays

Tropic Aftersun

 

☀️PROLONG YOUR TAN or help SUNBURN with our GORGEOUS AFTERSUN - Soothing Tan Optimiser☀️
WHAT DOES THIS PRODUCT DO? ☀️😎👙
This Aftersun Soothing Tan Optimiser deeply nourishes skin that’s been exposed to the sun and helps retain essential moisture in dehydrated skin, to effectively accelerate tan development and reduce peeling and redness, while keeping sun-heated skin feeling comfortable, cool and soothed.

💚HERO INGREDIENTS💚Made naturally with bisabolol, aloe vera juice and calendula.🌿🍃

💛BISABOLOL💛Bisabolol is the primary component of chamomile, which promotes healthy tissue regeneration, and is known for its anti-inflammatory properties, which help to soothe irritated, sun-heated skin.

🌱🌿ALOE VERA🍃🌱Often referred to as the ‘plant of immortality’, aloe vera has been used as a natural remedy for over 4000 years. Renowned for its ability to soothe, calm and condition irritated skin, this powerful healing plant provides excellent care for sun damaged skin. We’ve used a double concentration of aloe vera juice to maximise effectiveness.

🌼🌸CALENDULA🌸🌼Native to southwest Asia, western Europe and the Mediterranean, calendula - from the Latin word calendae, meaning little calendar, because the flowers bloom at the beginning of most months - is reputed to speed up the skin healing process, help soothe itchiness and condition skin to help return it to its normal, happy, healthy self.

Boys body loving – #SkinliciousSaturdays

As a boy, some people think we don’t moisturise our bodies because we are boys and just don’t need to.

That’s rubbish, if anything, boys skin dries out quicker so moisturising should be a daily regime for all of us, especially those that gym or exercise regularly!

I love our Tropic body love as it does exactly what it says on the label. Allows me to love my body, it moisturises, it’s good for me and it smells amazing. Not to mention it has an amazing side effect, it seems to act like a natural insect repellent thanks to the citrus in it.

Have you tried it? It’s amazing!!

Skin problems – #SkinliciousSaturdays

You may have multiple skin problems, you may have none, but one thing we all have in common is how much we should pay attention to what we put on and in our body.

A lot of people don’t realise that for most of us it can take less than 30 seconds for things that are in contact with our skin to sink straight through our pores into our bloodstream. So when you think about all the potential nasties that you could be absorbing all around you.

That’s why I am so aware and conscious of what goes on my body now.

Most of you know I suffer from psoriasis and most of it affects my face and my scalp so my daily face regime has to be simple and as clean as possible.

Do you get psoriasis? If so where? What do you use on it? If it’s anything like mine, I’ve had mine since I was a teenager and only recently managed to get it under control.

Ask away, if you have issues, I’m more than happy to give advice and try and help where I can and the most important one I can give is paragon free!!!

Good luck and ciao for now x

From today I'm going to try and post once a day, every day. I'll be talking about lots of different things but the majority of them will be about your health, happiness and fitness. Not only that but I'll be categorising my posts and each day will be themed around a certain topic which are listed below.

Healing!

This video is about one of my favourite Tropic products, the Tamanu Healing Balm. Award winning product for dealing with stretch marks and helping to heal cuts and scars this is my miracle cure for my psoriasis. Applied twice a day when it's at it's worst and within a week at most I barely have any trace apart from a slight discolouration.

Not only that but anyone with a serious skin condition will know that sometimes you are on steroid creams which are terrible for your skin and this stuff means I don't have to use it anymore! Life changing to say that least!!

If you have any skin conditions give this a try and let me know how you get on!

Day 23 – Tropic Skincare

Today I have taken the brave decision to jump head first into a new product and become an ambassador for Tropic Skincare.

You may ask yourself why I would do this? The reason is because I genuinely love the concept and the ethos of Tropic and I'm looking forward to trying and enjoying their products.

Story
The story of Tropic is fascinating and heart wrenching. Susie Ma is the founder and was born in China but grew up in Australia. At the age of 13 her and her mum moved to the UK where her mum was working multiple jobs so she could continue to pay the bills and give Susie a better life.

Susie was making home made body scrubs from every day kitchen ingredients and was sharing them with friends who convinced her at the age of 15 to go out and sell the home made scrub.

Her first attempt was putting the scrub in jam jars and selling them for £20 each at the Greenwich market.  She sold 49 jars on her first day and made £980!! The extra jar was her tester pot and once people tried it on their skin they were sold on the product.

She kept selling and within 6 months had made a huge £50,000 which she used as a deposit for her mum to buy their first house.

She then applied to the apprentice along with 75,000 others and got down to the last 3! Lord Sugar loved her products so much he offered to invest and in year 1, Tropic had turned over £2.2million and £8million by year two.

Why?
The reason I like this range of products so much is simple. It's vegan. It's completely animal cruelty free. It's gluten free. It's made by hand in a kitchen. It has all the ingredients written on the back in English. Most importantly it's Parabens free. Parabens have been linked to cancer and 99% of all Breast Cancer tumours have been proven to contain Parabens and Parabens are found in almost 98% of our every day toiletries! Plus, did you know it takes just 26 seconds for products to get into your pores and into your blood stream?

So for me, it's ethical, it matches my concept about caring for my entire body, inside and out and it's safer than the every day products I have been using for years.

I will be using these products and probably filming my unboxing to share with you all as well as my journey with Tropic. If you are interested and want to buy your own products to try out you can do so and get them delivered direct to your door via this link:  https://www.tropicskincare.co.uk/shop/melbennardo

Welcome to my Tropic journey!
