CEAP!  C-cleanse, E-exfoliate, A-antioxidant, and P-protect.  Keep your skin healthy using four simple steps, CEAP.  ”CEAP”ing skin healthy really is easy, quick and efficient.  The hard part is finding the products that you need for each step.  All skin is not created equal even on our own bodies.  Our lower extremities have thicker tougher skin as opposed to our facial and neck area skin that is thinner and more fragile.  So how can we accommodate the variety of skin needs without filling our shelves with vast amount of products?  The key is finding the organic products that work most effectively on your skin and knowing how to use them.  Let’s take each step one at a time and focus on the body first.

Cleansing your body is how you choose to remove dirt, bacteria, grim, and sweat.  There are three kinds of cleansing products that are organic.  Organic Soap (Superior Organic Soap), Omega 3 Hemp Glycerin Soap, and Body Wash (Body Bubbles).  Superior Organic Soap cleanses with creamy bubbles that lift away grim leaving traces of the rich butters and oils that keep skin from being tight and stripped.  These soaps take four weeks to produce but are well worth the wait.  Most commercial soaps, even one’s that declare that they are moisturizing, use animal fats or petroleum to add softness to the skin.  This is the equivalent to wiping mineral oil or animal fat over your skin.  As pleasant sounding as this is, we also compete with alcohol based bacterial products.  The most recent medical information warns us to stop using bacteria wipes and gels and go back to time honored bar soap.  Another commercial bar soap is called triple milled.  Depending on the ingredients, this can mean that left over bar soaps. glycerin soap and other additives are ground and reformulated with water to create the bars.  The second cleansing alternative is Omega 3 Hemp Glycerin Soap.  Hemp oil is high in providing the emollience of the vegetable version of omega three normally found in fish.  Sweet P’s offers customization of our Custom Glycerin Soap so that you may add butters or even essential oils that control bacteria like calming Lavender or astringent Tea Tree Oils.  Lastly, Sweet P’s Body Bubbles (Hand and Body Wash), provides a unique formula combining the winning abilities of Jojoba and Coconut Oils to bubble away dirt without SLS, parabens or phythlates .  Custom Glycerin Soap and Body Bubbles may be scented anyway you choose so that you may delight your sense or introduce aromatherapy results to your body.  Your skin determines which kind of product you need.

The second step to healthy skin is to exfoliate.  There are two kinds of exfoliants, chemical or mechanical.  Organic exfoliants are mechanical and easily controlled.  It is essential to exfoliate to remove dead, dry skin cells that can clog pores, help create blemishes, make skin appear rough and dry.  Exfoliating even helps encourage increase in cell turnover that we lose the older we get.

At birth a baby’s skin sheds every two weeks.  At age 50, our skin takes 4 to 6 weeks to turnover.  We increase the circulation to our skin and can even help fade age spots by increasing the circulation and cell turnover.  Sweet P’s uses Organic Brown Sugar, White Refined Sugar and Sea Salts in three preparations whipped into an Organic Shea Butter, Jojoba and Olive Oil base.  Organic Brown Sugar Scrub is fabulous head to toe.  Buttery Creme Sugar Scrub is wonderful all over the body and is gentle enough for cracked heel skin.  The most aggressive full body exfoliant is our Souffle Salt Scrub as sea salt crystals take a long time to dissolve.  You control how much you need to remove dry skin cells by the amount of moisture you use prior to applying the scrub.  Skin is fresh and ready for the third essential step to health skin.

Antioxidant Treatments are the third step.  Antioxidants provide a layer of protection against free radicals and environmental damage.  Sweet P’s has two products that are super rich and concentrated in our formulation.  We use wildcrafted prickly pear juice in the liquid portion of our formulas.  I hand pick the fruit and prepare the juice each year.  Prickly Pear Juice Lotion has an 80% concentration of juice that has been documented to take the sting out of sunburn.  Cactus Flower Hydrating Facial Mist is a fabulous hydrator, antioxidant, cell plumper and even increases the cell production.  Both of these products are incredible head to toe.  Skin literally soaks in the organic properties.

The Fourth and final step is protection.  I know you are probably saying what happened to moisturize.  Sweet P’s Organic Shea Butter Sun Block moisturizes while it immediately protects your skin.  There are two kinds of sun protection.  Chemical sun protection takes at least 20 minutes for the skin to absorb along with the associated toxic properties.  Most chemical sun protection products do not protect skin from both UVA and UVB rays.  Physical sun protections uses minerals like titanium dioxide and zinc oxide in their formulas to lay a protective cover over the skin that works immediately and protect from both kind of rays.

“CEAP”ing Healthy body skin is a basic as four steps.  These are easy to remember and even easier to use.  Some of our skin may need additional help with moisturizers, butters and oils but the essentials breakdown to 4 simple steps. C means find the cleanser that is right for your body needs.  E means remove dry skin cells by exfoliating.  A means protect your skin from free radicals and environmental damage by using antioxidants. Finally, P means protect your skin from sun damage that ages, burns, dries, and can cause cancer.

This is the time of year that everyone turns their thoughts to what they can do to improve their lives. One of the most effective things we can do is to “Detox our Skin Care”. Our skin, the largest organ of the human body, absorbs 60% of the ingredients used in personal care products everyday. One of the most easy and effective steps we can take is to remove skin care products that have toxic chemical links. We must read labels and know the names of these chemicals that have adverse effect on our health and the environment.Read More
