Is blue light inflammation harming our skin? And what you can do about it.

Is blue light inflammation harming our skin? And what you can do about it.

I don't know why I was surprised when I first found out about blue light inflammation. I mean, of course our nasty little phone habit was ruining our skin. What ISN'T bad for us that we're addicted to? Nothing.  The good news is that small skincare companies (like us at RECREATION) can be super reactive to new research and our Vibrant Skin Face Oil contains a special algae blend that exists to fight blue light inflammation (as well as boost your UV protection).  What is blue light inflammation? Basically, the light emitted from your laptop/device/smartphone is called Blue Light. It's...

Saving Face in Iso

Saving Face in Iso

Of course we wear makeup in Iso. I know I know, a lot of people don't, but to feel motivated enough to run a business, live through home schooling and try my damndest not to become an alcoholic, I feel like I need to be dressed and ready in the mornings or I may just sink into the couch.  Have you gone without makeup the whole time? We'd be so interested to hear your stories in the comments below! Here's what we've been doing to save our skin and hair: Hair Oiling This is a time tested tradition steeped in Indian culture....

Make: Lemon Cheesecake bliss balls

Make: Lemon Cheesecake bliss balls

I think these are healthy. Kind of. I mean, there's cream cheese in them but barely any sugar which really, is the bad stuff. Plus they TASTE EXACTLY LIKE LEMON CHEESECAKE!!!  Which, if you're a cheesecake freak like moi is hard to go past. They're so easy to make. I've adapted this recipe from Wholefood Simply and I  stocked up on cream cheese at the supermarket when everyone else was stocking up on toilet paper because I knew these would make me happy. Here's what you need.  INGREDIENTS: 2 cups desiccated coconut (200 grams ) + 1/2 cup desiccated coconut for...

How my skin is better in my 40s than it was in my 30s

How my skin is better in my 40s than it was in my 30s

Yes, really. Me. Not Cindy or Helena (well probably them too but I can't say for certain).  In my 20's and 30's and ever since I started using skincare, I have avoided oil like the plague. I have oily skin and searched for the magic words "oil free" on everything - cleansers, moisturisers, toners, treatments, foundations, bronzers, blushers, just EVERY PRODUCT I USED.  I couldn't see what the point was of putting oil on my already oily skin. Why would I? As a result, my skin got dehydrated, only I didn't know it. It was CRYING OUT for moisture, and to...

Iso - but make it fashion

Iso - but make it fashion

What to wear when you're staying in? The choices are endless. Comfy pants, followed by comfy pants, followed by more comfy pants! But when you get bored of that (like I did in about 2 days) may I suggest you begin to focus on "Good Casual"?    I find it hard to be motivated enough to work from home in comfy pants TBH. Comfy pants make me want to watch TV which I don't have time to do in between home schooling the kids and keeping the business afloat.  If this is you then you need to embrace Good Casual like it was...
