Natural Ways to Prevent Aging

Natural Ways to Prevent Aging

How do we fight aging? Does it really even have to be a fight? I think that prevention is really the key. Don’t worry, it’s never too early or too late to start! We all are guilty of speeding up the aging process when we go in the sun without protection, smoke, don’t get enough sleep, stress out, expose ourselves to environmental toxins, eat a poor diet, and use toxin-laden personal care products. Natural Ways to Prevent Aging Skin Damage There are a lot of things you can do to take care of yourself and your skin so that you’ll age gracefully and keep looking fabulous into your fifties (you got that right, since I’m knocking on that door!), sixties, and even seventies. Even if you’re only in your 20’s and not really thinking about aging yet, trust me, when you get to be pushing 50 and people still think you’re 30ish, you’ll be glad you listened! Focus on getting enough sleep (not enough sleep means bags and dark circles), eating right (beautiful skin begins on the inside), reducing stress (meditation and exercise are great for this), and using natural, high-quality skincare products. Let’s focus on taking care of your skin. 1. Choose Natural Skincare Products Go with natural skincare products. Seriously. Most of the “big brands” out there tend to use very small amounts of high quality ingredients (if they use any at all) that don’t really make a difference to your skin and they are commonly packed with cheap fillers like mineral oil that actually cause damage to your skin and your health. In fact, mineral oil is the second leading...

Avoid Petroleum and Mineral Oil in Your Skincare Products Like the Plague!

Do you ever think about what you are putting on your skin?   Truth be told, I never did, until I had to… Most people shop for their skin care based on packaging, advertising, or out of habit from what they’ve always used, but they rarely actually think about what they’re buying or what they are putting on their skin. Believe me, I’ll be the first to admit guilt. I used to be like a cat with a shiny object, going for the prettiest package that I was drawn to because I really didn’t have a clue otherwise. When comparing labels, they all looked pretty much the same to me. So, no judgement from me at all. But, before we dive into the controversial subject of mineral oil which is contained in a lot of those pretty products, let’s take a quick minute here to break things down.   Why you should avoid petroleum and mineral oil in your skincare products like the plague!   Our skin is our largest organ and it serves a very important duo of functions—to breathe in oxygen and to release toxins. You might’ve heard that certain chemicals and toxic ingredients that are probably in your skin care are harmful if ingested, but they can’t penetrate your skin, so you have nothing to worry about. That’s not necessarily true. Mineral oil is a great example. Okay, so that now brings us to mineral oil, which you might recognize as petroleum jelly (Vaseline)… It can show up on ingredients labels as mineral oil, petrolatum, liquid paraffin and paraffin oil. Regardless of what it’s called, there...
Welcome to Kudarat! The All Natural Gluten-Free Skincare Company

Welcome to Kudarat! The All Natural Gluten-Free Skincare Company

Hey there! Welcome to our first blog post at Kudarat skincare! We created this blog to share all things about gluten-free and natural skincare (especially ours!), to launch new products (we’ve got a huge line-up coming!), to educate, and to let you know when we are having sales and specials. Really, though, all that aside, you’re probably thinking, “what the heck is a Kudarat and OMG how do I even pronounce that?!” Let’s start with the basics…how to pronounce Kudarat. My dear family has been relentlessly torturing me on this particular topic. Ha, ha. Kudarat is pronounced “coo-da’-rot”, not “cooter rat” or anything else. We don’t have any cooters (apparently cooters are a type of river turtle…) or rats hanging out here, at least none that I know of! Now that we’ve sorted out how to say Kudarat, what does it mean? It’s actually a really pretty word in Hindi that means nature. We put a lot of effort thinking of an awesome name that reflects our values and also our brand philosophy. Check it out and let us know what you think! This goes along with our tagline, well, really more like our mantra, nature-soul-spirit. Kudarat is not just an amazing natural gluten-free skincare brand, it’s a lifestyle choice. It’s about feeding your skin and nourishing your soul. It’s about choosing natural, safe products that deliver results without harming you or the world we live in. So, without further ado, welcome! We are really excited to have you along for this journey! Want to contact us or find out more? Just drop us an email at info@kudaratskincare.com or post your...
