Calendula

Calendula 400 400 katsimeonidou

Calendula is one of the most well-known and widely used herbs in western herbal therapy.

Due to its long flowering period, from the beginning of the summer to autumn, the herb has been named after the Latin calendulae, which means “all the months”. Its Latin name is Calendula officinalis and comes from the Latin word “calens”, which means “the first day of every month,” as the Romans claimed it was then blooming. It is a plant of one year or two years, height 20-60 cm and flowers yellow or orange. It does not grow alone but cultivated as ornamental in gardens all over Greece.

It thrives in areas with mild climate and in fields of poor-moderate fertility, dry or watered. Multiplied with seed seeded in seedbed.

Components

Calendula contains a set of beneficial ingredients, in which many of its therapeutic actions are due. These include saponins, carotinoids, sterols, flavonoids, essential oils. Contains resins, sterols, flavonoids, carotenes, triterpenes, volatile oil and glissant.

Usage

Calendula is particularly well known for its moisturizing, cleansing, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, astringent, soothing and healing action, and can be taken as a tonic or mild anticonvulsant. For this reason, it is considered one of the best herbs to treat local skin problems, irritations, inflammations, infections, skin ulcers, external bleeding, but also for bruises and sprains.

It is recommended for acne and pimples, boils and ulcers, bruises, burns, conjunctivitis, cuts and wounds, eczema, hemorrhoids, herpes, psoriasis, sore throat, moniliasis, tonsillitis, toothache and varicose veins.

Caffeine

Caffeine 768 768 katsimeonidou

It is a hydrophilic substance found in the grains, leaves and fruits of more than 63 plants. Some of the best known are coffee, tea and leaves, cocoa and guarana. Caffeine acts as a natural pesticide that paralyzes and kills certain insects fed by these plants. The human body acts as a stimulant and is a mild diuretic, and has been a protagonist in many obesity research.

How does it relate to slimming and what exactly is its action?

It is wrong to believe that the more coffee we drink, the more easily we slim down. We remind you that 3 cups of coffee a day cause clarity, well-being and give us energy, but too much coffee causes stress, headache, trembling, and nausea. However, caffeine, when it comes in direct contact with the adipocytes, has a strong fat-dissolving action. That is, it has the ability to help the fat that is trapped inside the adipocytes become more delicate. Thus, it “escapes” more easily to the liver, which will metabolize it. At the same time, it removes unnecessary fluids, treats swelling and decongests fatty tissue. These are the reasons most of the weakening and anti-cellulite cosmetics contain caffeine in their composition.

What criteria do we choose for a weakening caffeine?

Its texture should be light and semi-liquid, like a moisturizing body lotion. It must also be absorbed immediately, dry quickly so that we can dress immediately after application, penetrate the deeper layers of the skin and of course be pleasing to the application.

Are all caffeine slimming products effective?

No, their effect depends on their caffeine content. A good rate ranges around 3 – 6%. Another important thing is: Caffeine has a low molecular weight, so it can be easily absorbed by the skin. However, the other components of the composition and their amount play a role. For example, alcohol is ideally suited to caffeine, however high levels may cause dehydration and irritation to the epidermis.

Which ingredients work complementary to caffeine and enhance its activity?

Together with ginger, it enhances the synthesis of adiponectin, a hormone that burns fat and activates its removal through the lymph. In combination with polyphenols, e.g. from green tea, prevents fat storage and protects the skin from oxidation, keeping the tire tight and tight. Together with seaweed or ivy, decongests and detoxifies adipose tissue while preventing cellulitis and local thickness reappearance. With pepper, it stimulates the lymphatic function and the elimination of toxins, so it causes a burning sensation and possibly redness in the skin. With apple extract, it acts against relaxation since it has the property of protecting the collagen type I and elastin fibers and stimulating the composition of new ones. Along with beetles, it removes all types of grease, even the most resistant (triglycerides, diglycerides, free fatty acids).

What is the correct application of a slimming / anti-celulite product?

No matter how good is the product we use, it does not reach its full potential with a simple spreading. For perfect application, do the following: Morning and evening, spread the product on dry skin and make massive massage, starting from the bottom up, in the lymphatic direction, and pinching the skin with your fingers. Thus, on the one hand the product is properly absorbed and on the other hand it facilitates the elimination of toxins. For an ideal result, before we spread the product, we make a warm bath. In this way, the skin pores expand and allow better penetration of the components.

When does the action of lipolysis peak?

Up to now, we were used to using an anti-celulite or slimming product in the morning. And yet, the time at which its action peak is at night, during sleep. Then natural lipodialysis is accelerated. If we do not sleep well or have poor sleep quality, we are at greater risk of becoming fat, because the function of adiponectin, the hormone that burns fats and the collagen composition is disturbed.

Olive Oil

Olive Oil 400 300 katsimeonidou

In ancient Greece, when philosophy, mathematics, geometry, and medical science were born, people had identified, among other things, the pharmaceutical actions of olive oil. The oil possessed a special place in the diet, but it was also considered a medicine by the ancient Greeks. And not only that, they had deepened so much, that they knew, which type of oil has more active pharmaceutical properties to protect health, and which does not. Today 2.500 years later, people are once again discovering these qualities.

Olive oil is characterized by the oil obtained from the European Olea (Olea europea), with exclusively mechanical means and processes or natural treatments at temperatures that do not cause oil alteration.

Constitution and nutritional value

The composition of olive oil is unique and differs significantly from that of other fatty food, plant and animal oils. More specifically, olive oil:

  • It is a completely natural product without any impurities and no food additives – it has no preservatives, dyes, artificial fragrances, etc.
  • It consists of about 99% fatty acids found in it in the form of triglycerides.
  • It is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, especially oleic acid (omega-9 fatty acid).
  • Contains 6-8% linoleic acid, one of the basic ω-6 fatty acids (polyunsaturated).
  • It has a very low content of saturated fatty acids.
  • It has a high content of various antioxidants and phytonutrients (carotenes, vitamin E, polyphenols, flavonoids, squalene, etc.).
  • Does not contain water, proteins, gluten, carbohydrates, cholesterol or sodium (salt).

Due to its content in all the above, olive oil acquires relaxing properties and contributes to the revitalization of the skin.

Honey

Honey 650 467 katsimeonidou

Honey is one of the products with most references to the mythology, history and tradition of most peoples. In fact, in Greece, its value was highly recognized. In ancient times, they used it very often as an offer for the Gods, while ambrosia, which gave immortality to the Twelve Gods, is said to contain royal jelly. Besides, Hippocrates and Dioscorides in their writings underlined their nutritional as well as pharmacological significance.

Active ingredients

It is rich in carbohydrates, trace elements, proteins, amino acids, enzymes and B vitamins. Due to its nutritional active ingredients it is a source of energy, regeneration and stimulation of the body.

Attributes

Honey is particularly nutritious for the skin, has significant healing and balancing properties, while it speeds up tissue renewal. As it has the ability to attract, absorb and maintain water in its molecules when added to cosmetic products, it offers moisture to the skin and keeps it cool. Traditionally, the various varieties of honey have been used in therapeutic applications, such as e.g. thyme honey for good respiratory function, chestnut honey for gastrointestinal problems, hive honey for its antiseptic and diuretic action, honey from eucalyptus because it softens cough etc.

It can act as an anti-aging but also for the treatment of acne

Honey removes the dead skin cells, renewing the skin. It is also packed with antioxidants, which help combat skin damage. It also has antimicrobial properties and is an excellent treatment for acne. This means that honey can help to clog the skin pores. It is much more skin-friendly than the harsh chemical treatments that conventional skin care products have on acne treatment.

It can help scar healing

Honey is the superstar for scar treatment. Because of its antimicrobial properties, it has been used for centuries to treat wounds. And because it is also a fantastic moisturizer, it can help the skin on the road to renewal. You can place the honey on a scar and cover it with a gauze to help with the treatment.

It’s good for hair

For the same reason that a moisturizer is good for your skin, honey works just as great for your hair. Some use it as a deep conditioner. Mix half a cup of honey with one tablespoon of olive oil. Apply to your hair and leave it for 20 minutes. Rinse very well! Your hair will be soft and silky.

Crystal Sugar

Crystal Sugar 635 406 katsimeonidou

It contains a unique moisturizing system, the composition of which is similar to the normal carbohydrate blend of the outer layer of the epidermis. This moisturizing system:

  • Characterized as a “water magnet” because it has the ability to bind water molecules and keep them on the skin.
  • It creates chemical bonds with skin keratin and so the “water magnet” is not easily removed from the skin, e.g. when we wash our face, except with normal monthly exfoliation of the skin. These carbohydrates become part of the epidermis and strengthen their unique ability to retain moisture.
  • It is one of the very few moisturizing systems that have a very good effect when the usual moisturizing agents are inactive, ie in adverse conditions of low humidity (20-50%).

It implants the normal functioning of the body’s carbohydrate system by mimicking the composition and function of our skin.

Argan Oil

Argan Oil 360 272 katsimeonidou

Argan oil is produced from the cores of the Argan tree, which thrives in Morocco and has been known worldwide for hundreds of years, for its beneficial properties mainly in the care of the face, body and hair.

It is enriched with precious ingredients. Specifically, it is rich in antioxidants, vitamin E, omega-3 fatty acids. Many dermatologists call it super food of the epidermis.

Moisturizes even the driest skins. It is the ideal, moisturizing product with anti-inflammatory properties, which can be applied even to red, irritated skin. Many women say that “no other product compares with it in terms of hydration.”

It has the property of not clogging pores, which we all seek in face care in particular. Many avoid using oil on their faces. However, this has the potential to balance natural fat production on the skin and thus prevents acne. Antioxidants can reduce the inflammation of acne and vitamin E can help heal scars. It is suitable even for people with sensitive skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis.

Finally argan oil has also proven anti-aging action because of the antioxidants contained and can heal the irritated skin. Its action resembles that of anti-aging serum.
