A while ago, we posted on the blog about how to get skin that glows, every day. But we realized there was still some curiosity out there about the topic, and we also wanted to specify the best skincare regimen for achieving that healthy, dewy glow. So we sat down with Tata and filmed this video, in which Tata explains her lifestyle & product tips for having glowy skin. We think you’ll love it.
The Regenerating Cleanser is adored for its ability to thoroughly cleanse, detoxify, exfoliate and nourish the skin – without any stripping agents like soaps, detergents, or alcohols. Active enzymes, plus essential oils with antibacterial, antiseptic and antifungal properties help to minimize pores and promote that healthy glow. Skin is left soft and smooth, not dry and tight. Check it out here!
Our Hydrating Floral Essence isn’t your average toner. It’s all about replenishing the skin with essential moisture in its deepest layers, to promote a plump, youthful look as well as day-long moisture. It can be used to promote a glow on top of makeup, or you can mix it in your palms with your antiaging serum for a super-penetrating, hydrating treatment. Check it out here!
The Replenishing Nutrient Complex is a favorite for its ability to deliver a healthy luminosity to the skin overnight. It’s super-loaded with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, lipids and amino acids to strengthen and nourish the skin. Swipe it over your face in the middle of the day for a hydration treatment on-the-go, or apply it around the entire face for a nighttime moisture treatment. Discover it here!
Last but not least, our Resurfacing Mask is our glow-giver. It’s a gentle but super effective beta hydroxy treatment to clear the skin of dead skin and toxins that build up on the skin; it reveals a fresh new layer, while helping minimize pores, reduce redness, and fight breakouts. Use it twice a week as a total glow treatment. Plus, it just won ELLE Magazine’s Green Star award! Explore here.
Here’s a true fact: stress affects the way we look. If only it weren’t so. Stress is our body’s natural response system to keep us alert and aware of possible danger – it’s the feeling of a quickening heartbeat and skin that’s tingly and flushed. Stress becomes problematic when our body experiences it without enough relief or relaxation in between. When we’re stressed, the body releases cortisol, aka “the stress hormone”, which increases sugars in the bloodstream and also takes your body’s energy and attention away from basic everyday functions like maintaining its healthy balance, so that you can be on high-alert. When the body is in stressful-situation-reaction-mode more often than it’s not, it can lead to issues like anxiety, sleep problems, weight gain and depression.
How does stress affect the skin? Since the body is so preoccupied with whatever it’s anxious about, it’s attention is diverted from its healthy skin balancing and healing habits. That means conditions like acne, eczema or psoriasis can worsen. Plus, when people are stressed, it’s easy to skimp on skincare and personal beauty-time, because it really feels like that is just not the priority right now. That neglect can worsen skin problems or lead to new ones.
We have solutions: 5 of them. Keep reading!

We are so excited to share our news with you - The entire SuperNatural Collection is now available on our site! After much anticipation, the Concentrated Brightening Serum and Elixir Vitae are live for pre-order, for those who love being the first in line. These serums join the Boosted Contouring Serum to complete the SuperNatural Collection, a trio of the most highly concentrated 100% natural antiaging serum in the world.
To celebrate the launch of these beautiful new serums, we’re including a free mini Hydrating Floral Essence with every order that includes a Concentrated Brightening Serum or Elixir Vitae, through 11:59 pm August 22nd, 2013!*
What’s so wonderful about these products, and what will they do for you?
These Serums are built on the award-winning, collagen-building power of our Rejuvenating Serum, which contains 29 active ingredients to fight the signs of aging. So, their formulas are already packed with the goodness of that treatment, and we’ve added to each one to deliver targeted antiaging results to meet different aging needs.
The Concentrated Brightening Serum contains 35 active natural ingredients to fight every stage of the hyperpigmentation process, including Brassica Napus Extract to help decrease melanin content in the skin, Sea Fern Extract to help reduce the appearance of dark spots, Sea Daffodil Extract to help brighten the complexion. It’s formula is targeted to deliver both immediate and long-term results, and to fight hyperpigmentation along the entire cascade of events that leads to a dark spot. It’s one thing to simply bleach the surface layer of the skin, where the pigment resides – like many common synthetic treatments – but to truly tackle the problem, melanin must be reduced in every layer of the skin. Plus, we knew that the skin’s strength and resilience to UV damage needed to be reinforced, as well as the skin’s natural melanin elimination process. We included ingredients to help with all of those things, so that what you’re getting is a complete hyperpigmentation treatment – plus collagen-building and elasticity-promoting benefits.

The Elixir Vitae is our ultimate wrinkle solution, and it contains 38 active ingredients to fill & relax wrinkles without injectables. It helps relax wrinkle-causing muscle contractions, while volumizing and redensifying the skin for a more lifted, youthful appearance. It’s our most concentrated treatment yet, and is targeted to deliver both immediate and long-term results. With advanced ingredients like Sweet Iris Stem Cells to help increase skin density, Spilanthes Extract to help reduce muscle contractions, Vitis Vinifera Extract to increase volume long-term by protecting cells, and Snowflake Bulb Extract to relax muscle contractions, this treatment is loaded with cutting-edge technology.

If you are a sucker for a green leafy, flowery label on a beauty product claiming to be “natural”, “organic” or “botanical,” you’ve probably been a victim of Greenwashing – a manipulative practice in which companies mislead their customers into thinking they are “green” when in fact they are not. “Green” in this case can mean they aren’t using use chemical or synthetic ingredients, their ingredients or packaging are environmentally friendly, they stick to environmentally sustainable business practices, their products are certified organic, etc.
Unfortunately greenwashing is common in the beauty industry with companies using convincing packaging and labeling on their products to make us feel we’re supporting eco-friendly practices, or that these products are better for us than their conventional synthetic alternatives. They’re assuming we aren’t going to turn the bottle around and read the label, and perhaps even go the extra step to look up the ingredients listed and that we may discover that these so-called “green” products aren’t friendly to your body or the environment at all.
Tata explains some of the beauty industry’s most common greenwashing habits and her opinions about it (should the government be involved to protect consumers?) in her next EPIPHANY interview from @radical.media Plus she discusses how far natural technology has come since she began developing the line 5 years ago, especially in the realm of natural anti-aging science.
