What Are The Skin & Health Benefits Of Mangosteen?

Discovering the new Eminence Organics Mangosteen Lactic Collection can be a delight for the senses: Antioxidant-rich mangosteen infuses the creamy textures with pretty peach tints and a delicious, tangy scent. One hit of the exotic superfruit is a heady experience and there’s no coincidence that this superior key ingredient is called “The Queen Of Fruits.” Prized for its complex flavors and scents, the mangosteen also grants amazing health benefits and protects the skin. Here are all the reasons why you need to know more about this exquisite fruit:

HISTORY OF MANGOSTEEN

Although it sounds similar to the mango, the mangosteen is not, in fact, related at all. The size of a small apple, the mangosteen is covered in a purple, leathery rind which protects the sweet, white fruit inside. Discovered in South East Asia by 19th century European colonists, the mangosteen won its title of “The Queen Of Fruits” from Queen Victoria. Rumor has it that the Queen heard about this precious fruit, which was a delicious mix of “lychee, peach, strawberry and pineapple flavors” and declared that she would grant a knighthood to anyone who brought her one (National Geographic).

SKIN & HEALTH BENEFITS OF MANGOSTEEN

Not only can the mangosteen boast a royal connection, the fruit is also valued for its high antioxidant concentrations. Mangosteen juice is all the rage, and the much-touted health benefits of the fruit stem from  the type of antioxidant found in the fruit, especially in its rind. These antioxidants are categorized as rich and biologically active xanthones (Men’s Health). Recommended in multiple studies – including a study from the University of Illinois – xanthones are a focus for cancer treatment and prevention (Dr. Axe). Xanthones also protect against heart attacks and bolster the immune system. Besides its antioxidant value, mangosteen’s nutritional profile also provides additional health benefits by helping control blood sugar levels and aiding the digestive system.

For the skin, the mangosteen has traditionally been used for a number of conditions, including eczema. The all-important xanthones protect the skin in multiple ways with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. By capturing free radical compounds, they prevent environmental damage to the skin while anti-inflammatory benefits further protect skin cells from destruction. Besides using xanthones to defend the skin, the fruit also promotes microcirculation which improves the appearance of skin vitality and radiance.

EMINENCE ORGANICS MANGOSTEEN LACTIC COLLECTION

Harnessing the benefits of mangosteen, we are proud to launch the Mangosteen Lactic Collection this season. Formulated to address the root causes of dull and tired looking skin, the collection combines the superfruit with our proprietary Lactic Acid Complex. Together, Mangosteen Daily Resurfacing ConcentrateMangosteen Daily Resurfacing Cleanser and our professional use only Mangosteen Lactic Pro Peel 10% refine pores, gently exfoliate and treat the skin, unveiling a naturally luminous complexion.

doTERRA Recipes: Blackberry Lavender Cream Pies

Lavender’s aromatic flavor blends well blackberries, which are naturally floral in taste to begin with. This recipe focuses on that flavor combination, but if you want to add some citrus flavor to this floral dessert (another great combination) try adding a few drops of Lemon oil to the cream filling.

Ingredients
Doubled pie dough recipe of your choosing
1 egg, beaten for wash

Berry Filling
1 pound blackberries
⅓ cup raw sugar (or honey, if preferred)
4 teaspoons lemon juice
¼ cup cold water
2 tablespoons cornstarch

Cream Filling
4 ounces cream cheese at room temperature
⅓ cup raw sugar (or honey, if preferred)
1 large egg yolk
2–3 drops Lavender oil

Instructions

  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, add blackberries, ⅓ cup raw sugar, and lemon juice. Bring to a simmer, stirring often to avoid scorching.
  2. In a jar or cup, mix together ¼ cup cold water and the cornstarch. As the berry mixture begins to simmer, slowly whisk the cornstarch mixture in.
  3. Reduce heat to low. Continue cooking the mixture, stirring occasionally for about 15 minutes. The berries should begin to break down, the mixed-in cornstarch turn clear, and the mixture as a whole begin to gel.
  4. Using a hand mixer, blend together cream cheese, ⅓ cup raw sugar, and egg yolk in a medium bowl. If using raw sugar, you may need to allow 5–10 minutes for sugar to dissolve, and then stir again.
  5. Add two drops of Lavender oil to the cream cheese mixture and stir. Add more to taste.
  6. Preheat oven to 400° F.
  7. Roll out pie dough and cut with biscuit or cookie cutters in desired shapes.
  8. Cut slits in half of the dough slices for a vent. These will be the lids of the hand pies.
  9. Spoon equal parts cream cheese and blackberry mixture onto the center of half of the cutout dough. Top with lids and crimp edges with a fork.
  10. Brush beaten egg lightly over the tops of the pies. If desired, sprinkle lightly with raw sugar for a rustic look.
  11. Bake for 15–20 minutes, or until crust starts to golden.

Tip: For a dairy-free recipe, omit the cream filling all together, doubling the blackberry half of the recipe and stirring the Lavender oil directly into the berry mixture once it has been removed from the stovetop.

How to Shape and Define Your Brows Like a Pro

Eyebrows have come center stage in the world of makeup; a full, defined brow is in demand more than ever. Perfectly groomed brows frame the face, and if done correctly, can act as an instant eye-lift. They set up your eye area making any eye shadow, liner and or mascara pop and ensuring your eyes become the focal point. To achieve your perfect eye brows, follow these quick steps.

First things first, put down and step away from the tweezers. Over tweezing leads to overly thin and misshapen brows, which require more work on your end to make them full and beautiful again. If any tweezing will take place it should occur at the end of grooming your brows to clean up excess hair.  Remember, we tweeze our brows, we do not pluck them.

How to Shape Your Eyebrows

Brow shape is unique to everyone’s face. Eyebrows are not a one size fits all situation; what looks stunning on your best friend or favorite celebrity, may not be the best shape for you. Here are three steps to help you find the most perfect brow shape for your face:

  1. To find out where your brow should begin (point A), align the flat edge of a straight makeup brush to the outside of your nose/inner corner of your eye.
  2. Your true arch (point B) is found by taking your brush and laying it diagonally from your nostril to the outside edge of your iris.
  3. Determine where your brow should end (point C) by using your brush to create a line from the outside corner of your nose diagonally to the outside corner of your eye.

The Perfect Brow for your Face Shape

  • For a Round Face: To minimize the curve of a round face, direct the outer third of your brow towards the top of the ear.
  • For a Square Face: If the face is square, direct the outer third of your brow toward the middle of the ear. This helps balance the face.
  • For a Long Face: If the face is long, keep the brow more straight across, directing the outer third above the ear.
  • For an Oval Face: An oval face already looks balanced, but to enhance this harmony, you can direct the outer third towards the ear lobe.

The Perfect Brow for your Eye Shape

  • For Wide Set Eyes: Make sure the inner corner of your brows are closer together.  First, mark where your brow should begin by using the Eye Pencil in Taupe to make a small line towards the center of your nostril. Then, use all your other angles to determine where the brow should arch and end.
  • For Close Set Eyes: Try not to make the mistake of over tweezing the area between your eyes; this will throw off they symmetry of your face. All you need to do is use the Retractable Brow Pencil to extend the true arch point out further, to give the eyes more of a wide set appearance.
  • For Hooded Eye Lids: Your ideal brow is thinner. This will open up the eye area and it appear larger and wider. Try to avoid a large, heavy brow because it will create the illusion that the eye is being pulled down further.
  • For Deep Set Eyes: Your goal is to offset any of the shadows seen around the whole eye area. Too dark eye brows will make your eyes appear deeper set than they really are. So, try working with a lighter brow shade, and keep your brow shape more angular. If the brows are too round in shape, they can actually accentuate dark circles.
  • For More Mature Eyes: The trick is to not drag the end tail of your eyebrow down; no need to assist gravity. First, find your true arch. Then, slightly lift the tail of the eyebrow as you create the end point. This will create an illusion of a more youthful eye.

How to Define Your Eyebrows

  1. Once the eyebrow shape is determined, brush the hairs up using a little bit of Clear PureBrow Brow Fix Gel to show you what is going on with your brows, where you need to fill, and so on.
  2. Fill in any gaps and define your brows with the GreatShape Eyebrow Kit. Use small upwards strokes with the angle brow brush included in the eyebrow makeup kit to create lift and the illusion of natural hair.
  3. Seal your work with eyebrow gel to keep everything in place.
  4. Once your perfectly groomed eyebrows are filled in, you can tweeze away whatever is left over. This way you don’t risk over tweezing!

The Eminence Organics Guide To Microgreens & Their Health Benefits

If you’ve heard the term “microgreens”, you may have wondered about these tiny trending plants. You’ve walked past their little bobbing heads at your supermarket, seen them piled up on plates at your local eatery, and they’re even showing up in the Eminence Organics Microgreens Detox Collection

What’s the big fuss about something so small? With Earth Day around the corner, we’re here to walk you through the microgreens phenomenon and help you find out more about these environmentally friendly plants and their health benefits in food and skin care.

WHAT ARE MICROGREENS?

Microgreens are exactly what they sound like: small and green! They are simply mini plants – like broccoli, radish or clover sprouts – that are harvested in their seedling stage before they reach maturity. Planet-friendly because they require few resources, microgreens are ready to go in 14 days or less. These cute little leaves are intensely flavored and add a zesty accent to salads, sandwiches and even soups.

MICROGREEN HEALTH BENEFITS

Besides adding flavor to your plate, microgreens deliver nutrients to your body. According to a study by the US Department of Agriculture, the leaves of almost all microgreens have “four to six times more nutrients than the mature leaves of the same plant.” As USDA researcher Dr. Gene Lester points out, “All of these nutrients are extremely important for skin, eyes, and fighting cancer and have all sorts of benefits associated with them.”

EMINENCE ORGANICS MICROGREENS DETOX COLLECTION


While eating microgreens provides potent nutritional benefits, using microgreens in your skin care products further enhances those healthy effects.

The new Eminence Organics Microgreens Detox Collection harnesses the powerful actions of these leafy ingredients to cleanse and protect the skin from drying environmental stressors with these three products:
1. The Eminence Organics Stone Crop Cleansing Oil restores balance and removes impurities.
2. The Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant brightens and invigorates through exfoliation.
3. The Lotus Detoxifying Overnight Treatment revitalizes and detoxifies dry skin with a lightweight gel cream.

Together, this capsule collection uses microgreens and ingredients like stonecrop to target the drying effects of pollution on the skin. Find out where you can buy the Eminence Organics Microgreens Detox Collection at your nearest Eminence spa.

MICROGREENS, ROASTED BEETS & GOAT CHEESE SALAD RECIPE


To experience the natural potency of microgreens both inside and out, you can introduce them in your diet as well as add them to your skin care routine. We love this recipe that tosses together tender microgreens with sweet roasted beets and the rich flavor of goat cheese:

INGREDIENTS:

Salad:
3-4 beets (we used golden beets)
⅓ cup goat cheese
2 cups microgreens

Dressing:
3 TB extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp Dijon mustard
2 TB white balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Preheat oven to 375F. Wash beets thoroughly. Wrap each one individually in foil, place on baking sheet and roast for 45-60 minutes.
2. Remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes. Unwrap each beet and peel the skin which should slip away easily, then cube.
3. Whisk together the dressing ingredients and toss with microgreens gently.
4. Crumble goat cheese on microgreens and top with beets.
