<![CDATA[Hydrate Your Lips With Lavera Lip Balm!]]> http://www.lavera.com/blog/hydrate-lip-balm/ Skin on lips is up to five times thinner than that on the face, making it more susceptible to harsh winter weather and in vital need of extra care and protection. Accordingly, each one of Lavera's new lip balms is formulated with a base of ten organic flowers and plant extracts to provide just the right level of intensive care and nourishment lips need.

Rich shea and cacao butters, together with olive oil and beeswax lend a protective barrier against freezing temperatures, and make for a deliciously soft and creamy texture. Delicate candelilla wax provides further, gentle defence against the elements, while helping to soothe and repair cracked, chapped areas. Precious organic oils of avocado, almond, calendula, coconut and wild rose gently nourish and strengthen lips while guarding against moisture loss. In addition all nine balms boast their own unique ingredients, tailoring each to meet and treat a specific lip care need.

Did you know?

Simply through application and wear, the average lip balm user consumes one stick a year—so choose an all-natural, organic formula, like Lavera's new lip balm sticks, to ensure you're not also consuming any nasty chemicals or artificial ingredients.

Now take a look at our lip-loving line-up…

See your lips comfortably through the most biting winter weather with Lavera Lips Classic, Lips Sensitiv & Lips Repair, three richly nourishing protective formulas.

In addition to Lavera's essential blend of ten potent flower and plant oils, Lips Classic also boasts organic sea buckthorn oil for deep down cell regeneration and rapid repair of chapped lips.

Lips Sensitiv benefits from the addition of organic evening primrose oil, rich in essential fatty acids, to restore suppleness to thin, sensitive lips, plus finely ground mineral pigments for light, year round sun protection. Lips Repair offers a very high concentration of Lavera's ten-strong blend of plant oils and waxes, plus vitamin E, to bring fast, soothing relief to extremely sore chapped and cracked lips, resulting in an immediate improvement in their condition.

Get your berry fix and smooth lips at the same time with Lavera Lips Strawberry, Raspberry & Black Currant, a trio of sweet, mouthwateringly fruity balms packed with Lavera's ten essential plant and flower oils plus delicious extracts of fresh, organic summer fruit and vitamin C. Each tastebud-tingling formula brightens, conditions and softens lips while lending a sheer berry pink stain.

Discover a lip balm that does double duty as a lipstick with Lavera Lips Soft Pearl, Soft Rose & Soft Bronze. Packed with the ten nourishing flower and plant oils found in every Lavera lip balm, these hard-working lip perfectors soften, smooth and protect, while softly shimmering mineral pigments enhance your pout. Choose from three pretty shades of pearl, pink and bronze and give lips a gorgeous shimmer and shine.

<![CDATA[Makeup During and After Chemotherapy]]> http://www.lavera.com/blog/chemo_makeup/ Cancer is always a very difficult thing to go through. With harsh treatments, serious surgeries, and the hope that keeps you fighting, you deserve a little something to make you feel at your best! Lavera offers a whole line formulated for those with sensitive skin. Liz, from Organic Beauty Source speaks about her mother's journey and the products that let her feel like the beautiful woman she is!

"Dealing with cancer treatment and its side effects is difficult enough. Losing your hair can seem like a whole new battle. You still have to go out in public and it boosts your spirits to look nice, whether out or at home. But most of us have little experience with a beauty regimen that includes no eyebrows or lashes.

Like I have mentioned here before, my Mom is once again battling cancer. So, while I would rather not be writing this article about her, I do want to share what we've found with those of you who are dealing with cancer yourselves or have someone in your lives who is.

It is especially important when going through chemotherapy to stay as healthy as possible. Nutritious diet, avoiding unnecessary germs, and lowering your exposure to toxins. Nontoxic make up and skin care are much healthier choices than conventionally made products.

Lavera makes a wide selection of beautiful make up products free from harmful cosmetic ingredients, many ingredients which have been linked to cancer. Their formulations are gentle enough for chemical-sensitized skin and they perform like a dream. Lavera make up is one of my favorite brands, and I always have their mascara and eyeliners on hand.

But how do they work on skin sensitized by chemo and/or radiation? My Mom put them to the test. Mom has a great wig(even her oncologist didn't know it wasn't her real hair!) but was still left with no eyebrows. She tried Lavera Eyebrow Styling Gel and it works like a charm. Very natural looking and easy to apply. Mom also uses Lavera Eyeliner Pencil in brown to create a soft, natural looking lash line.

Thanks to Lavera, and Mom's natural beauty, she looks great through this extremely trying time in her life."
