Who wants to go out for a romantic night after working long hours, taking care of the kids, or any number of other things we have to face on a day-to-day basis? Still, we want to have that special time with the one we love. Romantic nights at home are not impossible to create, and are quite simple to plan.
Movie Night – order take-out, that way you don’t have to cook and clean up the mess after. Pick up a movie or order one on the tv. You don’t have to watch a romantic movie either. Get comfortable, pop some popcorn, and snuggle up on the couch together while watching your movie. Get a little fancy and throw in a glass of wine.
Romantic Dinner – choose a meal that neither of you have eaten in a while. Dim the lights and have candles lit on the table. Include a centerpiece of fresh flowers. Start off with an appetizer, such as mozzarella sticks or potato skins. You can find both of those in the frozen section of the grocery store. Add a salad to the meal. Include a bottle of wine for a touch of elegance. Now the only thing left to do is sit and enjoy each other’s company.
Massage for Two – take a relaxing bath, either together or on your own. Once out of the bath, take turns giving each other a massage. Use White Camellia Spa Oil to add an extra special touch of pampering for your skin.

Dry skin is a problem that many of us deal with on a daily basis. It could be as mild as flaky skin, to as severe as skin conditions such as eczema. There are many treatments that use chemicals which can do more harm for your skin than good.
Listed below are 10 ways to naturally take care of dry skin:
You should get 7-9 hours of sleep each night.
Your body’s hydration rebalances while you sleep. Lack of sleep doesn’t allow your body to replenish its water balance which results in skin dryness.
Supplement moisture in the air by using a humidifier.
The moisture on your skin evaporates when the air becomes dry. Loss of moisture results in dry skin. The moisture is then added back to the air by using a humidifier.
Avoid hot showers and baths.
Hot water softens the oils on your skin, which strips away the skin’s oil barrier. This allows the moisture to escape from your skin. Instead take warm or cool showers and baths. This will help retain moisture in your skin.
Do not use soap on your skin.
Soap can dry out your skin, so instead use a non-soap liquid cleanser such as our Camelia Blanca Cleansing Oil.
Use a consistent moisturizing routine.
Apply moisturizer to slightly damp skin. Pomegranate Nectar Organic works well to hydrate the skin. Moisturize your hands every time you wash them. This will keep your hands from becoming dry.
Eating healthy keeps your skin from becoming dry.
Eat foods that contain silica, such as celery and cucumber, which boost moisture and elasticity. Omega-3 fatty acid rich foods help your skin hold on to moisture.
Do not consume caffeine.
Avoid caffeine because it is a diuretic which dehydrates the skin.
Drink plenty of water.
Water helps to rehydrate the skin, as well as releasing toxins from your body.
Use sunscreen when going outside.
Use at least a broad-spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen, and a lip balm that has at least an SPF 15.
Dress according to the weather.
During the winter, dress in layers to avoid sweating and irritation. During the summer, dress in light, loose clothing that covers your arms and legs. Wear a hat that will shade your face, ears, and neck.

Everyone wants to have healthy, younger-looking skin. We spend billions of dollars on creams and oils, take care to avoid getting too much sun, and we carefully wash all the grit and grime out of our pores so our skin can breathe. Even if you do that, though, you can’t overlook the importance of exfoliating.
Why Do You Need to Exfoliate Your Skin?
Your skin is the largest organ in your body, and it is constantly exposed to the hardships of the world. Under normal circumstances your skin sloughs off old, dead cells and regenerates new, fresh ones so you maintain a healthy protective layer for all of your insides.
That’s how it’s supposed to work, anyway.
The older you get, and the more damage your skin has to compensate for, the slower the rejuvenation process becomes. This is particularly true when dead skin clings longer, causing makeup, dirt, and other unwanted things to clog your pores. If you don’t actively scrape away all that unnecessary gunk it can cling, and ruin your skin’s health.
That’s where exfoliation comes in.
By using an exfoliating scrub, or washing with an exfoliating cloth or pad, you take the initiative when it comes to getting rid of dead skin, built up grease, and oily build up. By scrubbing away all this unwanted material you’re giving the still-living skin room to breathe, but you’re also stimulating your skin to build itself up. Exfoliation, in short, jump-starts your skin and helps keep it healthier, longer.

Japan’s geisha are a national treasure, and the women who take on the mantle are some of the most highly trained performers in the world. From music and ceremony to dance and poetry they spend years learning to embody grace, humility, and beauty. Today’s modern geisha still use many of the training methods and costumes from years past, but that isn’t the only part of their routines that has remained unchanged for so many generations.
When you think of a geisha chances are you picture them in full costume, with their hair up in intricate patterns and their faces painted a soft, glowing white. This is the look that has defined beauty in Japan for a significant stretch of cultural time, but it looks like an invitation to disaster. Ask any woman who wears heavy makeup on a day-to-day basis what the toll on her skin is like, and you’re sure to hear about a beauty struggle like no other.
So how do geisha keep their skin soft and beautiful while constantly subjecting it to the paint of their profession? By using white camellia oil to make sure they remove all their makeup.
It’s That Simple?
White camellia oil has been a part of a geisha’s routine for hundreds of years, and it hasn’t been replaced with a different cleanser because nothing else works better. The oil cuts through the makeup, gently prying it out of the pores, and it helps repair any damage that might have been done to the skin at the same time. This ensures that geisha have soft, smooth skin that’s healthy and nourished despite the stress and strain of their performances.

As you age, you’ll quickly discover that your skin’s natural luster, shine, and elasticity will decline. While some people panic and turn to plastic surgery, others are looking into the process of juicing for skin care. This all-natural skin care method is rapidly gaining popularity across the country.
What Exactly is Juicing?
Juicing is the act of creating a drink from the juices of one or more different fruits and chugging it. You simply can’t buy juice from the store: it has to be freshly juiced, often by grinding de-seeded fruits in a blender.
Why Does Juicing Work?
Drinking fruit juice offers your body a quick dose of highly concentrated vitamins and nutrients. Nutrients such as vitamin A, vitamin C, zinc, malic acid, and antioxidants help preserve your skin by supporting its health, fighting off infections, and stimulating blood flow to the skin.
Who Can Benefit from Juicing?
Juicers are generally people looking to keep their skin fresh, clean, and young. People in their early 30’s and 40’s are commonly juicing to fight away the wrinkles that are beginning to crease their face. However, anybody interested in a strong dose of vitamins can benefit from juicing.
How Do I Choose the Right Foods to Juice?
Just about any fruit or vegetable will be rich in the vitamins you need to support your skin health. However, the following fruits and vegetables are especially potent:
These foods are high in vitamin A, malic acid, alpha-hydroxy acids, fiber, vitamin C, and anti-oxidant nutrients, such as magnesium and potassium.

Few women take the time to detox their skin. This is a big mistake: skin detox can help your remove harmful toxins from your skin, eliminate dead cells, and even help you look younger. Body brushing is the easiest, and most effective, method to detox your skin.
The Best Time to Body Brush
Body brushing your skin before a bath or shower will open up your pores and release toxins. Then, the bath or shower will wash them away.
Choosing a Brush
There are a variety of body brushes on the market, not all of which will be suitable for skin detox. You’re going to need a stiff enough bristles to open up your pores, but soft enough to avoid skin irritation.
Irritation will actually cause your pores to close up in self-protection and ruin your skin detoxing experience.
Try to find a brush labelled for use with “massage” and try out a few before purchasing to find one that pleasantly stimulates your skin without irritation.
Brushing the Body
Now that you have a brush, you can begin.
- Start by brushing your feet, paying extra special attention to the soles and the ankles.
- Now, move up the legs, making sure to brush all around each portion before climbing up the body.
- Once your reach your waist, brush your hands, your arms, and then your chest. Try to use small, circular brushing motions to stimulate better pore opening.
- Once you’re finished with your chest and belly, brush your face and neck. During the process, make sure you always brush towards your heart. This helps increase your circulation and improve your metabolism.
- Finish the process by taking a bath to remove the toxins and dead skin cells from your body.

With so many facial products, lotions, soaps, shower gels, makeup removers, and anti-aging products at the grocery store, how do you recognize which products are reliable? After using so many products with harsh chemicals through the years, the skin is beyond repair. No worries. Merchandise with natural ingredients is available for skin restoration. Natural products come from constituents that we use for cooking and eating every day. Here are five reasons why using natural skin care is important.
No Side Effects
What’s the point of having flawless skin if the reaction is redness, irritation, and dryness? Lots of skin products on the market have harsh chemicals that cause allergic reactions. The good news is natural skin care products are just as effective without the harmful side effects.
You Literally Are What You Eat
As mentioned before, natural ingredients come from fruits and vegetables we consume every day. These ingredients are amazing for our bodies, so what happens when those foods rub against your skin? It’s the same amazing result. Our skin will experience a skin restoration that includes a smoother complexion and a healthy radiance.
Harsh chemicals age us because it brings out the signs of aging. Even so, you don’t need anti-aging products to stop wrinkles, fine lines, crow’s-feet, discoloration, and age spots from occurring. Natural products defy aging. It keeps your skin glowing and youthful a lot longer.
No Environmental Damage
Merchandise similar to sunscreen includes ingredients that protect the skin from irreversible skin damage. We use it as a supplement to our daily skin routine. Some items have those ingredients included. Either way it doesn’t guarantee your skin will respond well to it. Particles, dust, pollution, the sun, and wind are no match for natural ingredients. Natural ingredients come from the ground, so when it’s on your skin, its natural protection. Thanks to the antioxidants, a barrier shields the skin from unforgiving elements.
It’s too much money to buy a moisturizer, nighttime products, daytime products, and other products just to maintain healthy skin. With natural merchandise, the monetary value of purchasing items cost less. Natural ingredients have a few products to use daily, not several products to use in succession. The few products cover everything from anti-aging to harmful UV rays. It takes several chemically made products to achieve the same result.

We have been talking up the oil cleansing method for your face for a while now. It works wonders on all types of skin, and feels great. The big difference between the oil cleansing method vs. foaming cleansers is that the oil cleansing method uses oil to dissolve impurities in the skin, deeply cleaning it and leaving it nourished instead of dry.
If you are thinking about trying this method, there is a very simple set of instructions to follow. The basic method calls for rubbing about a dime-sized drop oil cleanser into your face for a minute. Add a little water to work up a lather, then rinse it off.
Quality Ingredients are Key
The biggest tip, once you have the basic idea for using the oil cleansing method, is watch the ingredients. The best oils for your face are organic and cold-pressed. Anything else might contain residues you don’t want on your face or not contain the nutrients your face needs. Rosa Y Fruta uses the purest cold-pressed Camelia oil in our oil cleansers.
Once you are using your quality ingredients in the prescribed method, it can take about a week for your skin to adjust. All the impurities in your skin will come out of hiding, and you might be tempted to attack them with soap. Stick with your new regimen, though, and soon your skin will be the smoothest and cleanest it has ever been.
Rosa Y Fruta has creamy moisturizers to apply once you are done cleansing to give your skin the ultimate glow. For skin that might need a little extra help, you can add a little of our Pomegranate Nectar to your face cream and smooth it on to soothe sun damage and dry spots. Your skin will thank you for the attention.
