Hey, Beauty Birds! As you may already know, we are just launching our Teenage Starter Kit!!! This kit holds a very special place in our hearts as it is a collaboration with a local all-girls school here in LA. This kit has been in the making since November, so we are so excited to finally be able to share it with you guys. What’s also super exciting, is that it includes four new products and a uniquely designed beauty tool, the beauty wand!
Each of these new products was meticulously researched, designed, and formulated by a group of driven and talented young women from the Marlborough School for girls and of course, us here at SkinOwl. We dug deep into the trials and tribulations of teenage skin, determined its greatest needs, and created specialty products to target and treat these common skin woes. Here’s to the first product on our list, the Avocado + Blood Orange Beauty Bar.
The Avocado + Blood Orange Beauty Bar
If you’ve used any of our SkinOwl Beauty Bars before, you’re familiar with their earth-friendly ingredients, their rich, moiturizing lather, and their gentle, skin cleansing abilities. This bar is no different, but it includes some special ingredients that make it uniquely beneficial for teenage skin.
Firstly, we’ve got avocado which contains antioxidants like vitamins C and E to fight free radicals, allowing the skin to repair as well as preventing damage. Avocado oil also stimulates the synthesis of collagen and elastin fibers. Its oleic acid contains potent antioxidant compounds that help slow down aging and prevent premature wrinkles and fine lines. Special compounds in this amazing acid help to strengthen the integrity of cell membranes and foster the repair of damaged cells. Teenagers can benefit from this calming and healing ingredient to help offset damaged cells which show up in eczema, rosacea, and acne.
Blood oranges are wonderful for the skin due to their high citric acid content which is effective in drying away acne. Apart from being rich in vitamin C, blood oranges also offer unique health benefits associated with high levels of anthocyanins. Anthocyanins are red flavonoid pigments that give the blood oranges their intense color and wondrous antioxidant properties.
The blend of avocado and blood orange are purifying, but also moisturizing, healing and protective. The perfect blend of benefits for a young adult!
Some other amazing ingredients found in our avocado bar are nourishing olive oil, castor oil, cocoa butter, and shea butter. Frankincense, known as the skin superhero, acts as a natural astringent and antimicrobial which helps the skin repair and fight signs of aging. Its skin reparative qualities make frankincense perfect for reducing the appearance of acne and scars.
How to Use the Avocado + Blood Orange Beauty Bar to its Fullest Potential
This Avocado + Blood Orange Beauty Bar is pretty amazing right! This invigorating, antioxidant-rich bar balances uneven texture and tone, caused by acne or redness, while drawing moisture into the skin.
- Face Cleanser: This may seem obvious, as it was our original intent for this product to be used as a face wash, but this little guy does some pretty amazing things for your skin. Use it on your face to gently balance and moisturize. If you’re a makeup wearer, I’d recommend removing makeup first before using our beauty bars as your cleanser.
- Body Wash: Just because you use it on your face doesn’t mean you can’t use it for the rest of your body! If you’ve got acne, scars, stretch marks, or wrinkles on areas other than your face, use our Avocado + Blood Orange Beauty Bar as your treatment. Or, if you’re looking for a gentle, yet effective, all-natural formula to cleanse your body with, this beauty bar is your answer!
- DIY Cleanse and Exfoliate: Stick your Avocado + Blood Orange and our Charcoal bar together so that you can cleanse and exfoliate at the same time! Learn how to here!
- Shampoo Bar: Are we blowing your mind yet? This bar can be used to gently cleanse your hair as well. Simply wet hair and massage bar directly onto hair and scalp. Don’t worry if it doesn’t suds up too much. It’s surfactant free and is still cleaning your hair even without the lather.
To use our Avocado + Blood Orange Beauty Bar, soak bar under warm water and apply lather onto entire face. Rinse and pat face dry. Can be used morning and night as a daily face cleanser.
