Are You Mindful about Skin Care?

1 2 3

Beauty and skincare products have come on in leaps and bounds over the past few decades. The emphasis on wellness, skincare, and self-care practices has inspired a generation of people that aim to look after the skin they live in as well as their body!



The rising importance of skincare products and treatments may also be due to the increasing numbers of people that suffer from skin issues and complaints such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, or just overly sensitive skin. And the reasons for this can be due to some factors including:

  • Stress

  • Environmental 

  • Poor nutrition

  • Lack of Exercise

  • Modern Living (in general)

The first point mentioned is stress, and it is probably one of the most common reasons that many of us suffer from skin issues from time to time or chronically. Stress is one of the main causes of inflammation within the body, and so excess or prolonged stress is a cause for concern for health overall.

Naturally, when faced with an issue in terms of our skin or health, we want to find a solution for it. Good nutrition (most of the time!) plays a major role in maintaining healthier, younger-looking skin. However, numerous topical remedies can help; alongside a greater focus on health overall, improvements to the look and feel of your skin can be achieved.


Chemical Overload

But there’s a catch! It all depends on what products you choose to use. And the most expensive skincare products are not always the best! Unfortunately, cosmetics and personal care products have little government oversight, which means many products, and the ingredients used in today's beauty products, are not well-regulated. There is growing evidence that the toxins in our skincare products are significant endocrine disruptors.

The endocrine system is responsible for regulating many processes within the body, these include hormonal function, metabolism, growth and development, sexual function, sleep, mood, and tissue function.

The main takeaway is to remember that the skin is the largest organ in the body – every time you apply a skincare product to your body the ingredients go through the skin into your system.

We are suffering from chemical overload which disrupts the natural flow of the body and can cause any number of issues, illnesses, and conditions. So, it is time to ask ourselves “Are we poisoning ourselves and setting ourselves up for illness as we age?” 

The good news is that it is never too late to take action toward healthier skin and a healthier body. Skin regenerates every 28 days or so and so any changes put into place should begin to show benefits within 4-6 weeks.

Mindful buying means that you take some time to look into the ingredients of a product and how they can benefit your wants and needs. TRUZEALIA believes in creating healthy changes through mindful buying.

Truzealia helps discerning consumers to be sure about what they’re buying, so they can save time and make informed choices about purchasing earth-friendly, non-toxic, and ethically made products.

They sell artisan products sourced in New Zealand and Australia. Truzealia products meet rigorous selection criteria for quality, design, and ethical making. They visit the manufacturers and use the products to trial them before introducing them to the market.



“Truzealia products are boutique in nature – they are specialized and valued by our customers. Many of the products are only available through our store and a few have very limited quantities. It’s all about quality, design, and create that WOW factor for the customer. Health and wellness are one of our target areas with our skincare range as well as our positive colorful wall art, and t-shirt designs. Truzealia also gives back - 5% of all apparel sales are donated to Jigsaw Whanganui – ‘Kaupapa whanāu - thriving children - thriving families’, an organization dedicated to the welfare of children and families”- Truzealia

Truzealia was founded by twin sisters Cherry and Cassandra in 2019. One lives in Australia and one lives in New Zealand. They started the company to fill the consumer's need for artisan products that are unique, creative, and ethically made.

 “We have an abundance of Manuka, Mamaku, and Kiwi fruit plants in New Zealand. The properties of these plants have been used by Maori for generations for skin and wound care. Manuka of course is used for honey and it also has many antibacterial and anti-aging properties. Another ingredient is Mamaku from the New Zealand native tree fern that also has anti-aging skincare properties. It encourages the production of collagen and elastin cells and is rich in moisture that enriches dry skin. Truzealia- our brand name, came about by combining ‘truly made in New Zealand and Australia”- Truzealia

Here are two of Truzealia’s products: Manuka Night Repair Serum and Rose & Mamaku Daily Facial Moisturizer


Truzealia Manuka Night Repair Serum 

This carefully balanced, oil-based formulation combines gentle organic jojoba oil – a highly penetrating wax that closely resembles the skin’s natural sebum – with fatty acid-rich organic rosehip oil, known for its anti-inflammatory and regenerating qualities. This serum is intensely hydrating and calming; it is fortified with anti-inflammatory botanicals. It is distilled in-house for the highest active ingredients. The blend is further enriched with indulgent, skin-calming essential oils of Manuka, frankincense, helichrysum, myrrh, and geranium; and nourishing antioxidant vitamin e, which also acts as a natural preservative. It feels velvety on the skin and has a sweet and herbaceous scent- applying it before bed feels like a luxurious evening ritual! 

DIRECTIONS: Gently massage 1 to 2 drops of serum onto the face at bedtime, after cleansing.
