One woman’s quest to heal problem skin

Nearly two decades ago, Roni Kramer received a degree in traditional Chinese medicine and Chinese herbology and opened her practice. Soon she realized that a large number of clients were coming to her with skin conditions like eczema, acne and psoriasis because of the side effects they were experiencing with cortisone and other conventional treatments. They were looking for a natural alternative.

That prompted Kramer to form a company called Kamedis (pronounced KaMEDis) and embark on years of R&D to determine what Chinese herbs and other botanicals could be used to treat these conditions safely and effectively.  The resulting products have been sold overseas for eight years – are clinically proven to reduce eczema flare-ups up to 50% in two weeks, acne lesions within 12 hours, and dandruff by 50% in two weeks – and have been available in the U.S. for the first time in January 2018.

Each product contains extracts from multiple plants, using a patented extraction process that produces such a potent concentration of botanicals that you can literally SEE THE DIFFERENCE in the vivid greens, ambers and honey colors of the formulations.

My favorite is their Clear line, as I have acne problems sometimes. And you know, acne is no fun – whether you’re 14 or 27, a single pimple to a full on breakout is straight up the worst. Kamedis created this product that will not only clear your face but keep it clear and resilient. Kamedis also wanted the acne products to balance your sebum production using an oil-free formula that won’t dry out the skin. Through the combination of eastern medicine and western innovation, Kamedis created just what they were looking for and made it available as a treatment set. See results in just 12 hours using the full acne treatment.

New Beauty Plan For The New Year of 2019

Let us try some new beauty products in the new year. This article is perfect for the one who love exploring the new stuffs like me. Okay, Let me tell you what I have found recently and I love them!

First, I want you to know this lovely eye stamp – CLEOPATRA CAT EYE STAMP. Maybe it sounds very new to you, but it is an amazing new product you should get to know. It will help you save a lot of time to have high quality eyeliners.

CLEOPATRA CAT EYE STAMP is:

  •  ACADEMY AWARD WINNING MAKEUP ARTISTS, CELEBRITIES, and BEAUTY BLOGGERS FAVORITE EYELINER STAMP! – THE VERDICT IS IN!! TOP MAGAZINES and ENTERTAINMENT TV NEWS SHOWS like E! News, Entertainment Tonight, Buzzfeed, OK!, InTouch, US Weekly, Star Magazine and many more have named The Cleopatra Cat Eye Stamp one of the hottest items around.
  • DON’T TRUST CHEAPER VERSIONS that may be made with toxic chemicals or be harmful to your eyes. Do your research before choosing. Cleopatra Cat Eye Stamp is dermatologist formulated, tested, and approved. As always it is CRUELTY FREE!
  • STAMP AND EYELINER – Cleopatra Cat Eye Stamp has a precision stamp on one end to create perfect winged eyeliner in under 60 seconds. It also has a built in fine tip point eyeliner on the other.
  • THE LIQUID IS IN THE PEN – You don’t need to buy additional items or brushes. The Luxurious, long lasting richly pigmented eyeliner is already inside. WATERPROOF and SMUDGEPROOF. Save time, save space, and save MONEY.

Get Noticed! Create Even Wings in Less Than 60 Seconds!

  • 2-in-1 Stamp & Eyeliner
  • Perfect Look for Every Personality
  • Easy to Use for Beginners

  • For Your Every Day Use

There are only three steps you can totally follow!

1. Stamp the wing on the desired position at the corner of your eye.

2. Draw the lash line with the fine tip and connect it to the wing.

3. Shape and extend your wing if desired.

There are three types that you can choose from, depending on your style and taste. I love the combo, because I change my style sometime, and I love my makeup can perfect match with my outfits.

I also recommend a great Sun Protector. Korean cosmetics are always one of my favorites. I do Korean facial masques every two days. I also keep using a lot of Korean sunscreens. IOPE is a well-known brand, and their sun protector is amazing.

IOPE UV Defense Sun Protector SPF 50+ ($32; www.us.aritaum.com): This lightweight sun protector strengthens the skin barrier while providing protection against harmful UV rays. Its grease-free formula absorbs into the skin quickly, controls shine, & moisturizes skin.

  • “Light as a feather” texture

The lightweight texture gets absorbed without a sticky finish and protects the skin from UV rays.

  • Protects skin from UV rays and fine dust

The Micro-Filter System™ that protects skin from fine dust also protects from UV rays and harmful environments to help keep the skin in its healthiest state.

  • Treatment for signs of aging from UV rays

The V.D. Booster treats signs of aging from UV rays while strengthening the skin’s barrier to assist the development of even healthier skin.

Another product I would love to introduce is a overnight masque. As we all know how Vital C helps our skin to be glowing and brighter. Image Skincare’s this product, a Vital C hydrating overnight masque can work very well on your skin overnight to make a better and moisture skin the next morning.

IMAGE Skincare VITAL C hydrating overnight masque ($55; IMAGESkincare.com): This overnight treatment is the perfect way to keep your skin hydrated and moisturized after some wind burn. The gel-texture delivers water to the skin and locks in vital nutrients while you sleep, helping to smooth skin and diminish wrinkles. Wake up feeling hydrated and glowing.  This overnight treatment has a triple mineral complex that energizes the skin for a revitalized look. The gel-texture delivers water to the skin and locks in vital nutrients while you sleep. Blue-green algae extract, a natural retinoid alternative, helps to smooth skin and diminish wrinkles. Hematite and malachite provide unique mineral radiance for stressed skin. Wake up with intensely hydrated, glowing skin.

Simply put, IMAGE Skincare knows skin.IMAGE Skincare’s multi-functional products contain the highest levels of active ingredients and are loved—and used—by skincare professionals. IMAGE Skincare clinical director, Dr. Marc Ronert, develops the proprietary formulations to ensure that each one delivers superior effectiveness and real results.

Lower back pain and pelvic pain are incredibly common ailments for men: half of all men will experience prostatitis in their lifetimes, along with other ailments like sciatica that cause pain in the lower back and pelvic regions. Fortunately, there’s an unorthodox new method for men to treat lower back and pelvic pain that’s not only safe but also highly effective: CBD suppositories.

Foria Wellness has released suppositories with broad-spectrum CBD and other organic ingredients (including cocoa butter) that’s designed to treat lower back pain and pelvic pain in men. Foria is currently conducting research with Harvard Doctor Staci Gruber to understand more about how the endocannabinoid receptors in the pelvis work; but what we do know now: Back and pelvic pain are dramatically reduced with this product and all without harmful drugs or surgeries.

CBD Suppositories for Men: A Bold New Way to Relieve Pelvic and Back Pain

Lower back pain and pelvic pain are incredibly common ailments for men: half of all men will experience prostatitis in their lifetimes, along with other ailments like sciatica that cause pain in the lower back and pelvic regions. Fortunately, there’s an unorthodox new method for men to treat lower back and pelvic pain that’s not only safe but also highly effective: CBD suppositories.

Foria Wellness has released a new line of suppositories with broad-spectrum CBD and other organic ingredients (including cocoa butter) that’s designed to treat lower back pain and pelvic pain in men. Foria is currently conducting research with Harvard Doctor Staci Gruber to understand more about how the endocannabinoid receptors in the pelvis work; but what we do know now: Back and pelvic pain are dramatically reduced with this product and all without harmful drugs or surgeries. That yes, Dr. Gruber is affiliated with Harvard Medical School, she is also the Director of Marijuana Investigations for Neuroscientific Discovery (MIND) Program and the Cognitive and Clinical Neuroimaging Core (CCNC) at McLean Hospital.

Basics Suppositories

$ 72.00

Basics Suppositories are formulated for relief during your period, or for local muscular relaxation and inflammation relief. Experience the soothing, tension-melting effects of our pristine broad-spectrum CBD. Each suppository delivers 100mg directly to the area that needs it most.

  • 8 suppositories / 100mg active CBD each
  • Broad-spectrum CBD from sun-grown USA hemp
  • 100% organic & fair-trade cocoa butter
  • Free of solvents, heavy metals, and pesticides
  • No additives, preservatives or THC

Relief Where You Need It

Once again, Foria has followed nature’s design, creating an all-natural formula with the purest ingredients available, formulated for direct, local relief. The vagina and the rectum readily absorb CBD, creating muscular relaxation and localized relief from discomfort and inflammation.

Like Foria Relief (available only at CA and CO cannabis dispensaries) Basics Suppositories are formulated for relief from menstrual cramping and discomfort — but are available worldwide. Basics Suppositories deliver 100mg of active, broad-spectrum CBD directly to the muscle and vascular tissues of the upper vagina and uterus. (Other over the counter remedies affect the entire body — often with unpleasant side-effects.)

Compared with CBD edibles and tinctures, these suppositories activate local receptors much faster. (The only form of CBD that works faster than suppositories is our CBD vape pen — though its soothing effects are more general, influencing overall mood and tension.)

Purity

For us purity starts at the source. This hemp is sun-grown on a sustainable farm that employs permaculture techniques to enhance soil, water, and biodiversity. After harvest, Foria Relief uses CO2-extraction (the gold standard for purity) to create a hemp extract rich in phytocannabinoids and terpenes, and deliver these actives in fragrant cocoa butter that’s 100% organic and fair trade certified. Foria Relief uses independent lab tests to ensure freedom from pesticides, heavy metals, microbes, and other toxins.

Hemp Extract (broad-spectrum CBD)

Broad-spectrum CBD is naturally soothing, helping to unwind local tension & discomfort while oxygenating and rebalancing tissue. CBD offers a tremendous range of potential health benefits, including antioxidant & anti-inflammatory effects, along with significant pain modulation.

Unlike cheaper CBD products made with “CBD Isolate,” Foria Relief exclusively uses Broad-Spectrum CBD — which is far more beneficial because it contains a range of cannabinoids & terpenes that enhance absorption and efficacy.

Organic Fair-Trade Cocoa Butter

Foria Relief‘s pure, organic cocoa butter is a fragrant, easy way to deliver CBD to the vagina or rectum. Cocoa butter is made from raw cacao beans, which are squeezed in a hydraulic press to express the rich, golden oil — which solidifies below 76 degrees.

Fair-trade cacao is grown and harvested by small farmers who work their own land with help from family and community members. Workers’ pay, schedule and accommodations are monitored by the fair trade certifier to ensure that every contributor gets a fair share of the benefits of this high-value crop, re-investing into education and material improvements for the community. (Cacao that isn’t certified this way is typically a bulk commodity with origins in exploitive labor.)

About FORIA:

Foria Wellness is committed to natural well-being & vibrant health. Foria Wellness‘s wellness formulas unite traditional herbs & botanicals to create natural enhancement products that are thoughtfully designed for both women & men.

6 Resolutions To Treat Your Feet Better

‘Tis the time to be inundated with ads for New Year diets, health and wellness trends and exercise classes. The brains behind Baby Foot Exfoliant want to make sure that while you’re thinking about your goals and aspirations for the following year, you’re not neglecting your feet. We all use them everyday, so it’s vital to treat them every now and then. In addition to your regular skincare regimen, make it a goal this year to add your feet to the mix! Here are 6 fail-proof ways to put your best foot forward:

Moisturize
It is essential to moisturize your feet, especially during the colder months since they can easily become dry and dehydrated. Baby Foot’s Moisturizing FootMask ($15) immediately hydrates and replenishes the feet with rich, smoothing components including Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, and 14 natural extracts.

Don’t walk around barefoot
This may seem rather obvious, but walking around barefoot can lead to unwanted strains and even infections (yuck). Yes, even around your house! Opt for some slippers instead.

Bring your own instruments to the nail salon
Taking your own tools to the nail salon may seem extra, but it is SO worth avoiding an infection. Keep a kit in your car, or, have your go-to nail technician keep it for you.

Exercise
Moving around not only promotes a healthy body overall, but it is also good for your feet. Exercise allows your blood to circulate and keeps your feet strong and in shape.

Stay away from high heels
This is perhaps the least ideal recommendation on this list, but you know it’s true. Walking around in high heels almost always leads to sore, achey and blistered feet. Your feet are trying to communicate with you, so give them a break!

Get rid of dead skin cells
Your feet regenerate new skin cells constantly, meaning there is a build-up of dead ones that need to be dealt with. Use Baby Foot’s Original Foot Peel ($25) to remove unwanted dead skin from your feet. Slip the booties on for one hour while your skin absorbs its unique formula containing 16 types of natural extracts designed to exfoliate (there’s even a version for men, too). You’ll start to see your feet peeling within 3 to 7 days after your treatment, leaving your feet super smooth.
