I’m pretty sure a lot of you have heard about the benefits of Chia, right? Well here’s a quick recap; It’s been clinically proven to increase skin hydration, improve the barrier function of the skin and reduce transepidermal water loss (that’s when water passes from inside you, through the skin via diffusion and evaporates).
So now we’re all on the same page about how amazing chia is, I should really tell you why Beauty Heroes has won, yet again in giving it’s customers an amazing discovery box for January. So please, let me introduce you to Maya Chia’s The Super Couple face oil. Susanne Norwitz is the founder of this amazing brand and has been passionate about beauty, ritual and Mayan culture since she was young. Her father used to travel to Guatemala to perform cleft lip palette surgeries in Mayan communites, so when she discovered the country’s chai seed oil had immense levels of omega in it, beauty and nature came together to make something truly wonderful.
That’s only the beginning though. Once Susanne has discovered Chia seed oil, she started to look for complimentary ingredients that would mean the serum she created would be potent, effective and a luxurious treat for the skin. Enter astaxanthin (yep, I had to look it up too); a compound that comes from microalgae which has more 65 times the antioxidant levels of Vitamin C (er, wow). When she combined both ingredients together along with jasmine, rose, carrot seed oil as well as lots of other goodies, she created the super couple; an ultra luxe face oil that was amazing for your skin.
It’s colour is beautiful, and there is a super impressive, patented form of extraction to ensure that it’s as close to it’s natural state as possible, smells divine (you can really smell the myrrh and frankincense come through which I even surprised myself by guessing right), it’s an absolutely beautiful serum that you need to try out.
Moving onto the side kick. The Maya Chia Supercritical Chia Waterless Wonderbalm is on my list as a new all time favourite. Oh My Goodness. I love it SO much. It’s an all-purpose balm which helps to transform those dry bits on your body back to life. I’ve been using it as a lip balm recently and it smells amazing, performs like a dream and glides on to give you a subtle shine. I really am obsessed. It now comes with me everywhere.
