Are We Even on The Same Frequency: Energy Infused Skin Care – How it Really Works

Are We Even on The Same Frequency: Energy Infused Skin Care – How it Really Works

Are We On the Same Frequency 
{Energy Infused Skin Care – How it Really Works}

We say that Yungskin™ products are unique because they stimulate targeted Acupuncture face-lifting points on the face and neck. The products are infused and energized using a high-tech quantum imprinting process to stimulate the Acupuncture points at a deep cellular level. When applied correctly, the skin’s natural vitality and radiance is regenerated, fine lines and wrinkles are significantly reduced and the skin takes on a more youthful appearance. But what is Energy Infused and how does it really work?

You see, everything in nature has its own thumb print or signature, which could also be called its own unique frequency (vibration). For example the frequency of a liver cell differs from that of a lung cell which differs again from say, a skin cell and so forth. Like every part of your body, the skin on your face resonates its own particular energy field and frequency.

Situated on the body are Acupuncture points which are invisible to the naked eye (the Chinese discovered these points thousands of years ago and as many as 2,000 of them) and each one to these points also has its own unique frequency. Within this practice, a popular method of face lifting has been via Acupuncture using fine needles in the face.

These principles sparked Yungskin™ Inventor, Acupuncturist and Homeopath, Dr Philip Sherwin, to spend many years perfecting a formula that contained the essential Acu-frequencies used in face lifting.  This formula was then ‘downloaded’ via specialized equipment and infused into a cosmetic cream. When this cream is applied to the face twice a day, the frequencies/vibrations are able to stimulate the relevant Acu-points with a corresponding face lifting effect. And that, in simple terms, is how Yungskin™  energy-infused skin care originated!

We believe that Yungskin™ is a breakthrough product which uses advanced technologies to provide outstanding benefits without any adverse effects. It works with the natural energies of your body to provide visible and lasting results. To date, and as far as we know, Yungskin™ remains the first and only skin care range in the world to use quantum energy science and cellular stimulation principles based on Acupuncture face-lift points.

Wouldn’t you want to rejuvenate your skin back to its ‘natural youthfulness’?

{By Nathalie Larsen} 

This Gracious Greens salad contains A,B,C,D,E,K plant vitamins that nourishes both inside and out. A complete blend of stimulating anti-inflammatory spices, plant proteins, fiber, healthy fats and immune boosting vitamins.

What you’ll need to fill your bowl:

Sprouts – I chose sunflowers

Raw grated vegetables spirals – I chose zucchini ( you can add carrot & beet )

Broccoli/Asparagus/ Green beans or Peas – lightly steamed

1 cup of cooked gluten free grain – Quinoa/ Millet/ Buckwheat noodles etc – this is totally optional of course 😉

Freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 large or two small Chopped Spring onion ( greens and whites )

Handful of fresh chopped Basil

Crunchy omega Seed sprinkle

Blistered tomatoes or sun dried tomatoes ( your choice )

2 tbsp of Avocado Turmeric dressing, plus extra for the top!

How you’ll do it 🙂

Place your veggie noodles of choice in a bowl along with your grain ( if using ) season with a squeeze of lemon, salt and pepper, add some avocado dressing and chopped basil and spring onion. Mix well.

Place into bowl or a plate, garnish with sprouts, blistered tomatoes or sun dried tomatoes and green veg of choice. Then dress it all with a little extra creamy dreamy avo sauce and top with your crunchy toasted seed sprinkle.

Spiced Avo dressing:  (makes a nice cold soup too!)

  • 1 Ripe, Creamy Avocado
  • ¼ Cup chopped cucumber
  • 1 Cup of mixed chopped Coriander & Dill
  • Optional spices ( ½ tsp ground cumin & ½ tsp turmeric )
  • Pinch of cayenne
  • 1 tsp raw honey or coconut nectar
  • ½ Clove garlic, crushed
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tsp good quality sea salt – add more or less to your preference
  • Cracked black pepper

Method:

  1. Place the avocado in a food processor or blender with all the ingredients and blend till smooth. Add more water if needed and adjust the seasoning to your taste. Stores in the fridge for a day or two – makes enough for a few salads.

Omega seed mix:

1 Cup  pumpkin seeds, soaked overnight in water

1 Cup sunflower seeds, soaked overnight in water

½ Cup sesame seeds

¼ Cup hemp seeds or chia seeds

2 tbsp of tamari

¼ Cup nutritional yeast ( optional for a cheezy tang and B12 vitamin boost )

Extra salt if needed

Pinch of cayenne

Method:

  • Drain your seeds, place them on a baking tray except your hemp seeds and roast at 180 for a few minutes until they turn slightly golden.
  • Shake the pan every now and again to ensure even roasting.
  • Once they start to pop and sizzle, remove from the oven and add tamari and cayenne.
  • Taste it and add extra tamari or cayenne if needed.
  • Mix to coat well and place back in the oven to seal in the flavour for a few minutes – not too long as they will burn. Remove form the oven, allow them to cool completely.
  • At this sage you have the option to pop them into a blender and pulse them for a quick whizz to grind them into a sprinkle – take care not to grind them too fine. Remove, add hemp seeds and nutritional yeast if using and and store in an airtight container in the fridge.

How to Blistered tomatoes

  • Heat a pan over moderate heat, once hot add tomatoes and let sit for 2 minutes or so to blister.
  • Give them a quick stir,  Add a splash of olive oil, a splash of apple cider vinegar, salt and cracked black pepper, stir again and remove from the heat.

Nutritional fun facts of this salad:

YES! There is protein in avocado! And broccoli and sprouts! In fact there are traces of protein in most vegetables 🙂

Applying heat to tomatoes activates their Antioxidant properties.

Fresh herbs like coriander and basil bind to heavy metals in our body removing toxins from our body.

Spices are like magic dust, activating  digestive fire in our body.

Healthy fats, like seeds, nuts and avocado, act as a vehicle to transport nutrients through the blood, keep you sustained for long periods, lubricate your cells keeping them healthy and your skin glowing. 

Tubers – like Spring onions, garlic and turmeric are powerful natural anti biotics

The simple act of soaking seeds in clean water with a pinch of mineral salt for about 6-8 hours, then rinsed and dried, makes them more digestible by breaking down their anti nutrients which are present in their raw exterior.

Balance of raw and cooked food is better than one or the other. Cooking certain foods releases nutrients which otherwise would be hard to digest in their raw state but on the flip side, certain raw foods are better and fueled with sunshine minerals that would normally be destroyed by heat.

Spend a little time to do the research and find the balance that works for you.

Beauty Beyond Skin Deep: Be Kind to Your Body, Mind & Soul

Beauty Beyond Skin Deep: Be Kind to Your Body, Mind & Soul

Food for the Soul  {Every Action has a Powerful Reaction}

Our bodies are stardust; our lives are sunlight.”Oliver Morton, Eating the Sun: How Plants Power the Planet

Food is life & there is great power in Plants. Nature is fueled with an alphabet of nourishing nutrients, naturally designed to assist our bodies in the self-healing and regenerative process we go through on a daily basis.

The inner workings of our bodies can be seen as a mirror effect of the natural world. The nutritional support we get from every unique plant nutrient helps build strong foundations to assist the bodies natural ability to self heal.

By choosing to consume more natural foods we strengthen our Immunity & detoxification becomes an integral part of our daily lives, all of which keeps us healthy and happy 🙂

It’s all one big digestive process, a growth process with every ‘part’ playing a role within the whole.

From the Colours in our food, which bring Rainbows of vitamins & stimulate feel-good hormone production, to the Flavours, which arouse excitement, activating enzymes in our digestive tracts. Mindful moments, encourage us to make better choices while selecting & preparing ingredients & products.

All of that being said, we cannot forget that our skin – our largest organ is as important in the renewal process of the body and therefore needs to be supported by those choices. Beginning and maintaining a flow and cultivating healthy habits that work for you, through listening to your body and becoming more aware of what it requires, is so important.

We struggle to really hear what we need but that’s because we need to clear through the internal noise. That takes time and you need to honour that time.

No quick fixes unfortunately but taking one step each day towards making an effort to crowd out the bad by replacing things with better choices, is your key to sustainable change ~ ie: Refined salt out, sea salt in.

Skincare routines you adopt, the water you drink, the food you eat, your daily movement, rest & even the company you keep, every action has a powerful reaction which can create a natural ripple effect that will bring you closer to your goals.

So as we age through life, we can reflect on this beautiful natural rhythm, a rhythm we can nurture instead of trying to lengthen or avoid. It’s a timeless beauty – to live our best life, In harmony with nature, both inside and out.

Summer Sun(care): When the Outdoors is Your Workplace

Summer Sun(care): When the Outdoors is Your Workplace

Summer Sun(care)
{When the Outdoors is Your Workplace} 

Most of us can agree there is much awareness and education out there to prevent one from baking their skin into… well… leather! We all pretty much know and understand the basics and importance of sun care. But every now and then, even the most vigilant can do with a good ‘ol back to basics refresher.

At Yungskin we realise that our healthy lifestyle decisions exposes us to the outdoor elements. A large amount of our spare time is spent in sunshine, whether it’s taking a quick run, coastal cycles, climbing your favourite mountain trail, chilled vibes by the lake, lazy beach bum days, camping weekends – the list goes on!

Since there is a lot of misinformation out there, misconceptions about sun exposure persist. The following are some common myths from SunSafeRX about sun exposure and the facts to set the record straight.

Myth #1: A Tan Is Healthy
In actuality, a tan is a sign of skin damage. Skin tans in response to sun damage to your skin. Skin tanning is a sign your skin cells and the structures of your skin have been damaged, even if redness or peeling was never present. You’re gaining skin colour at the expense of your health.

Myth #2: Your Skin Is Dark So You’re Protected
Melanin is what gives skin its colour, and melanin does protect your skin from the sun. But it doesn’t completely protect you—the sun still damages people with darker skin. Also, the darker your skin, the more difficult it is to tell when you are burning. Because people may think they are better protected if they have dark skin, they may also take less precautions regarding sun exposure and end up staying in the sun longer and more frequently—leading to more damage.

Myth #3: You Don’t Burn So You Don’t Need Sun Protection
While melanin in the skin does help prevent sun damage, it doesn’t prevent all damage. It doesn’t matter if you burn or not: sun exposure still damages your skin, leading to ageing, wrinkles, sun spots and more serious consequences. You should still be cautious when in the sun regardless of whether or not you think you might burn.

These moments in the sun are mostly by choice, but when the outdoors becomes your office, it is a whole new ball game! Lean in as we learn a few good tips from our newest Brand Ambassador Tasha Mentasti. Tash is a multiple SA Women’s Surf Champ, long time surf coach and a huge lover of the ocean, people and outdoors.

Natural Evolution: A True Reflection of Community

Natural Evolution: A True Reflection of Community

You are the Brand
{A Sustainable Community} 

We often see companies and brands making certain claims and boasting about their innovative approach, culture relevance and dynamic organisation.
 
The Yungskin™ ethos is that  You are the brand . It’s about living the authentic reality. It is not what we say that determines who we are. In fact, it’s who you say we are, that ultimately defines and characterises us. 
 
For this reason we’ve identified and collaborated with an array of like-minded, passionate “life infused energy” individuals. They represent different industries, cultures, vocations and activities that collectively represents ‘holistic living’ and therefore Yungskin™.  We are very excited about  our new Brand Ambassadors who will be introduced shortly.
 
In building a brand we’re building a profile. The Yungskin™ community exists because of the common thread that unites us. Furthermore, it’s the diversity that embraces us, and the all-inclusive spirit  which determines us.  

We’re early in this journey to become a true reflection of our local and global society. New partnerships, ventures and opportunities are being formed and taking shape along this road. It is a beautiful thing having you with on the ride, a key part of our natural evolving Yungskin™ tribe.

A huge thank you for all the support in shaping the Yungskin™ brand!
