Benefits of Honey

I have always been amazed at the beauty products you can find in your pantry and fridge. Some might consider honey one of natures best kept secrets, yet it is always sitting on my pantry shelf directly between the sugar and cinnamon. Loaded with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, honey is a natural antibiotic. Its antibiotic properties can assist in healing and killing bacteria associated with acne and wounds. How exactly does honey help heal/reduce acne and wounds? If you place honey on acne/wounds it will absorb the water in the wound. The honey will then kill all bacteria because bacteria needs water to survive as well. The water the honey absorbed will then trigger a chemical reaction, which causes the honey to release hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide is also a wonderful antibiotic and will help to kill additional bacteria associated with the acne/wound. Also, honey is another natural product that can remedy inflammation. Because honey is acidic, it helps reduce the redness associated with acne. Try applying honey directly to the face in mask form to alleviate redness. Also, taking a spoonful of honey daily as a supplement can improve general skin-tone. If you are planning on using honey as a daily supplement, buy it in its raw, unprocessed form. Some people even use honey as their daily face-wash because there are no chemicals and it does not strip your skin of its natural oils. Although this is not going to completely remove your makeup, so it is best to use this face-washing method after your morning shower.

Hello and New products!

Visiting family in the Far East is a treat but coming back to a pile of work is another treat. However, I am getting caught up and ready to share some new things happening at AYU, LLC.

This coming month March – 2011 will be a whole year since we moved into our new facility and since then we have added a few more staff and working to serve our clients with dedication to provide new innovative products  and services.

Some new products that are being launched by in the next few weeks are

Vino Bronzing Mist (Grape Escape Therapy Collection)

Celerity Tan (Rapid Tan that develops quicker then traditional sunless tan)

Here are some images and detail about products:

1) Celerity Sunless Tan

Rapid Sunless tanning with anti aging boost

The secret about this product is that it works quickly, an action packed solution, so by leaving the solution on your skin for a 2, 3 or 4 hour time period it will develop the equivalent strength approximately of a 6%, 8% or 10 % concentration of DHA accordingly.

Key Ingredients:

Rapid DHA ( DHA + Troxerutin), Eco-Certified DHA, Panthenol (B5),Green Tea Extract,Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, Algae Extract, Black Walnut Leaf Extract, Hyaluronic Acid

2) Vino Bronzing Mist: ( one of the product from our Grape Escape therapy collection)

Grape Escape treatment with muscadine grapes which are grapes that are naturally rich in antioxidants, vitamins and Polyphenols. The interesting fact about the grapes that we are using (muscadine grapes) is that they are grown locally in the southern part of the USA and contain a high level of resveratrol, which is an anti oxidant that is absorbed by the skin easily and works its magic to reduce inflammation and slows the oxidation process that most often causes pre mature aging of the skin.

Key Ingredients: Muscadine Grape Skin & Seed Extract, Muscadine Grape Juice, Grape Seed Oil, Hyaluronic Acid, Eco-Certified DHA, Panthenol (B5), Green Tea, Red wine Powder, Vitamin-E
