Beauty tips for a healthy glow from top-to-toe
Beauty tip: After-sun care is essential if you’d like your healthy complexion to keep on glowing. 100% pure organic plant oils are a must! They are like ‘food for the skin’, providing vitamins, mineral and essential fatty acids that help to hydrate, nourish and protect your delicate and beautiful body.
Beauty tip: Due to the golden hue of sea buckthorn oil, this skin loving ingredient is ideal as a subtle skin bronzer, whilst also containing a natural SPF component. Furthermore, seabuckthorn is renowned for its ability to prevent the ageing process due to the high levels of vitamins E and A, which are both essential for youthful, supple, healthy skin. These are the vitamins said to destroy free radicals, giving your skin the gleam and glow that it deserves.
Beauty tip: The SPF of red raspberry seed oil has been found to be equal to that of titanium dioxide and has been rated to have a potential SPF between 28 – 50 for UVB and 6.5 – 7.5 for UVA. It possesses an exceptionally high proportion of alpha and gamma tocopherols (Vitamin E), polyphenols and other antioxidants. It is also rich in Vitamin A and contains up to 83% omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Finally there is a 100% natural and organic sunscreen that protects whilst it nourishes!
Beauty tip: One way to maintain that healthy glow all year round is to apply a self tan. When choosing a “fake tan”, please remember to choose a natural brand, and avoid those with DHA (dihydroxyacetone). Even the naturally-derived DHA has always been questionable. When applied to the skin it has been found to generate high amounts of free radical damage, as well as inhibiting the production of vitamin D. There are studies that link use of DHA with irritation to the skin. DHA is found in various organic and natural self-tanners, and irrespective of whether it sourced from a natural source or not, DHA is still DHA, and with it comes the risks. DHA is also the culprit for causing that orange tone and streaky effect.
Beauty tip: with all that wear and tear over the summer, remember your hair needs a little TLC too. Once a week apply a 100% natural and organic hair treatment to your hair and scalp for a healthy shine, and to counteract the consequences of modern day living.
Maintaining your summer glow all year round is easy when you have these natural, organic, vegan must-haves in your beauty cabinet.
1. HAUT caramel self tan
An organic, vegan, DHA-free self-tan that hydrates the skin and provides SPF. Most tanning creams tend to be drying and create streaks on skin and clothes. With our unique vegan formula from nature you can avoid all that and still get a richly-hydrated, bronzed look that lasts over a week! Free from DHA (Dihydroxyacetone); 100% natural; contains red rasberry oil for natural SPF; a rich, buildable colour; no biscuity smell from DHA; fragrance-free; no staining of clothes; gluten-free; cruelty-free.
2. HAUT raspberry skin elixir SPF30
A light, non-greasy sun protection combined with potent antioxidants and vitamins for a youthful looking complexion. The SPF of red raspberry seed oil has been found to be equal to that of titanium dioxide and has been rated to have a potential SPF between 28 – 50 for UVB and 6.5 – 7.5 for UVA. It possesses an exceptionally high proportion of alpha and gamma tocopherols (Vitamin E), polyphenols and other antioxidants. It is also rich in Vitamin A and contains up to 83% omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
3. LIVE NATIVE essential beauty serum with rosehip and seabuckthorn
A totally nourishing facial serum and antioxidant boost complete with a potent combination of enzyme-rich living botanical oils and anti-aging omega oils 3, 6, 7 and 9 that promotes active rejuvenation of the skin on a cellular level. Naturally UV protective. Beautiful to use in the morning as a stand-alone moisturiser as the golden hue of the oils provide a natural looking glow to your complexion.
4. COCOPURE extra virgin, cold pressed organic coconut oil
The most pure form of coconut oil – as it should be. Our premium quality (100% extra-virgin, cold-pressed, certified organic, raw, unrefined, unbleached) coconut oil is extracted from fresh organically grown pacific island coconuts, and produced using the Direct Micro Expelling (DME) process. This creates empowerment opportunities for farmers, and produces a pure and natural oil within one hour of opening the nut. Available in 2 different sizes. A great multi-tasker, including after-sun body treatment for skin and hair.
5. BE GENKI sensual body oil
The base organic cold-pressed ingredients of sunflower oil, hemp seed oil, avocado oil and rose hip oil are extremely nourishing, readily absorbed into the skin, and dramatically enhancing the appearance of the skin. Especially beneficial for dry skin, stretch marks and reducing the effect of sun damage. The blend of essential oils help to soften and balance the skin, whilst improving the skin’s elasticity. At Be genki, we believe your body deserves the same amount of love and care that you gift to your face.
6. MOROCCAN NATURAL argan hair treatment
Hair is put under pressure now, more than ever – hair dye, hot styling and pollution leaves hair dry and split. Our Argan Hair Treatment helps to prevent hair from breaking, frizzing, and counteracts the consequences of modern day living. Helps rid your hair of dry split ends, restoring the hair to a healthy, shining condition. Also recommended for dry flaking scalp conditions (dandruff).

Our brand and product selection is based on thorough research, based on 16+ years of industry experience. If we are not 100% convinced that an ingredient is safe, we won’t stock the product. ‘Natural’ and ‘organic’ products and online shops are becoming more prevalent these days. Whilst this is great, it also is rather confusing, as many ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ brands out there contain toxic and harmful ingredients that sound ‘natural’ or ‘naturally-derived’ but are indeed irritating to the skin and internal organs.
