We’ve fallen — for seasonal skincare

Everything in life is cyclical, like the seasons.

We know that in the longPrimal Life Organics Fallen Face Serum and Body Butter days of summer we’ll be out and active in the sunshine, soaking up the Vitamin D and avoiding sunburns. As the air cools for winter, we’ll spend more time tucked away indoors, away from sunlight and battling the burn from cold winds instead of sunny afternoons.

This time of year, most of us try to enjoy the harvest season and every last bit of warmth we can get before it’s time to prepare for a long winter of bundling up from the cold.

We change the rest of our behaviors based on the season, so why not do the same for our skin? Each season takes a toll on our skin in a different way, so it makes sense to add the unique nutrients it needs to replenish from the harsh aspects of one season and prepare for the next.

Feed your skin what it needs to be at its best this fall. Our bodies need sunshine, but the harshness of summer can do long-lasting damage to our skin. Even if you take every effort while you’re in the sun (like using our sun protection products), give your skin the jump start it needs for the cold, dry air of winter.

Our Primal Seasons products have everything your skin needs to transition from one season to the next with our seasonal Fallen Primal Face Serum and Body Butter. Our Fallen line is only available from September to November, and mixes nutrient-rich and organic Argan oil, pumpkin seed oil, rosemary oil and black cumin oil with cinnamon EO. Argan oil is known for its moisturizing and healing properties, while rosemary oil has antimicrobial antiseptic properties that can help with skin issues like acne, dermatitis and eczema and leave skin feeling toned, protected and not oily.

Still not convinced? Check out our seasonal line for 10% off the order with the coupon code “season.” This code is only good for one week, so don’t wait until the season changes!

All that Zucchini 

Baked Zucchini Spears and dip 2“Waste Not, Want Not” is a motto Guest Cave Girl blogger Heather Seikel  grew up hearing and lives by even today, especially when it comes to quality produce from her garden.

If Zoodle making wasn’t fun enough, Zucchini Breakfast Casserole is worth the time and effort! FreZoodlessh zucchini picked from my garden and Brunty Farm fresh eggs made this an instant favorite for my husband and I.

Later on that day, Baked Zucchini Fries with Bloomin Onion Dipping Sauce was yet again another win!

Kale is another successful grower this season and she has mastered
Pizza Kale Chips and Kale Stem Pesto.

Break the Habit… Go Primal. Live Primal. Choose Primal Products.

Hi.  My name is Trina Felber.  I had a bad habit.  I am a nurse, and I poisoned myself daily for 40 years.  It was a bad habit… it was making me sick, and bloated, and tired, and forgetful, and fat and lazy, and my skin was dull and broken out and oily.

I broke my habit seven years ago- and I never looked back. Today, I have energy, normal functioning GI, reproductive, nervous, immune and endocrine systems.  A healthy metabolism and radiant, glowing, beautiful skin.

My habit?  I never read my labels.  I didn’t know I was poisoning myself with chemicals.  I didn’t realize how commercial skincare was harming my body- causing acne and bloating and oily skin.  My immune system was failing.  I was full of inflammation and disease.

Today, I know better.  I read ALL of my labels… and I made my own skincare to be sure I only feed my body real food nutrients.  And what a difference it made!

Habit

habit (or wont) is a routine of behavior that is repeated regularly and tends to occur unconsciously.[1][2][3] In the American Journal of Psychology (1903) it is defined in this way: “A habit, from the standpoint of psychology, is a more or less fixed way of thinking, willing, or feeling acquired through previous repetition of a mental experience.”[4] Habitual behavior often goes unnoticed in persons exhibiting it, because a person does not need to engage in self-analysis when undertaking routine tasks. Habits are sometimes compulsory.[3][5] The process by which new behaviours become automatic is habit formation. Old habits are hard to break and new habits are hard to form because the behavioural patterns we repeat are imprinted in our neural pathways,[6] but it is possible to form new habits through repetition.[7]

As behaviors are repeated in a consistent context, there is an incremental increase in the link between the context and the action. This increases the automaticity of the behavior in that context.[8] Features of an automatic behavior are all or some of: efficiency, lack of awareness, unintentionality, uncontrollability.[9]  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Habit

Your life is filled with habits. I bet we each have at least 100 habits we are unaware of. Habits we live EVERY DAY!

We all have them. We all live them.

Consider this: almost everything you do, use, eat and touch is a habit. The toothpaste you use is a habit. The shampoo you use is a habit. Your face wash, deodorant, hair spray, moisturizer, soap, anti-aging cream, styling agents… all habits. Taste, smell, sound of the bottle opening. Habits. Habitual items we use every day.

Our feet take us right to them. Our arms know exactly which shelf they sit on and what height to rise to. We grab them.  Our hands know exactly what the bottle feels like- the shape, the texture- so familiar and comforting. We don’t even need our eyes to know it is the right bottle. In fact, our eyes have never even looked at the ingredients… EVERY STEP IS A HABIT! Break the habit and LOOK at the ingredients.

Once home, we put them in their place. Our body knows where they are stored. At the proper time, we reach for them, recognize the bottle, smell the toxic fragrance, apply and are so familiar with the lather, smoothness and texture. NEVER DO WE GLANCE AT THE INGREDIETNS. That is not our habit!

BREAK THE HABIT! Don’t walk directly there. Don’t raise your arm. Instead, STOP…make the conscious effort to turn the bottle over and READ THE INGREDIENTS!

Make THAT your new Primal habit!

Awareness is the only way to stop a habit. Awareness that almost everything we do in a day is a habit brings new meaning to living.

If you have chosen a Paleo or Primal Lifestyle, break free from your skincare habit and read what you are putting on your largest organ. An organ that is supposed to protect you. Serve you. Feed you. Heal you.

Feeding your largest organ a cocktail of multiple chemicals (fragrance, petroleum, phalates, parabens, sodium larueth sulfate, propylene glycol, formaldehyde, triclosan, mica, etc) numerous times a day will lead to disease. After all, these lab-made chemicals have no place in a Paleo or Primal Life. They disrupt your hormones, reproductive system, cause damage DNA, impair your neurological system, endocrine system, cardiovascular system, immune system. They cause inflammation. Inflammation is the root cause of diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, arthritis and more.

Don’t set yourself up for failure… set yourself up for success… and health.

If you have chosen to go Primal in your diet, choose to go Primal in your skin-food! Living a Paleo or Primal Lifestyle is not complete until certain habits are broken.
