How do you find the best skincare products?

Good. Better. Best.
Not all skincare products are created equal.

With so many companies touting their wares, and making promises about dewy complexions, looking 10 years younger and so on, the choice can be overwhelming.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could find a skincare company that delivers on the simple promise delivering what it says it will? Like cleansing without drying…toning without the damaging effects of alcohol…rejuvenating without clogging the pores and providing deep hydration where you need it most.

Natural Beauty Care talks about moisturising promises.

The small miracles a tube of moisturising cream is supposed to deliver give pause for thought, don’t they? A refreshing find would be moisturiser that

  • Was affordable
  • Hydrated deeply with lasting moisturising effect.
  • Non-greasy.
  • Not pimple-forming.
  • Not over-perfumed.
  • Didn’t make your T-zone look like a shiny ski ramp
  • Doesn’t cause a rash.
  • And is kind to bunnies – being ethically produced, that is never tested on animals.

And now the wishlist for the ultimate moisturiser.

A skincare range that is:

  • Plant based
  • Harnesses the healing power of nature
  • Is manufactured in clinical conditions – that’s a must I recon.
  • Created by a small family business.
  • The supports the local community in which it is home.
  • A range whose main ingredients are grown organically.
  • The ingredients grow on ground that is no use for anything else – you can’t grow crop on it or even graze sheep as it’s so steep.
  • A skincare range made possible with a freelance workforce whose office is the land on which they work.
  • Workers who pay no ‘rent’ for the land. They do a handshake deal with the farmer and land is  promised to them, for FREE, for, well, almost forever, as long as the farmer and his family stay there too.

Sounds too good to be true? Not really, Aloe Ferox natural skincare products answer the full wish list. Mostly because they are not competing with the global, big brands mass produced and retailed in department stores and supermarkets.

Small, ethical, sound, they use distributors and are ‘never on the high street’.

If you want to get your hands on Aloe Ferox  you can, right here. It’s exclusively available in the UK through us at Natural Beauty Care.

‘In my humble opinion, one of the best skincare  product ranges around.’ Michelle Mitchell, Owner, Natural Beauty Care..

How to look younger for longer, naturally.

How to look younger for longer, naturally.

How to look younger for longer, naturally.

 As we become older, skin becomes less elastic and fine lines and wrinkles appear. Call them laughter lines if you prefer. 

Daily skin care greatly assist in delaying the effects of time. But cleansing, toning and moisturising alone are not anti-ageing solutions. 


Here are some tips for delaying time, and how to look younger for longer by managing your health, fitness and wellbeing. 

  • Be mindful about following a balanced diet as the food you eat is important for your health and skin /complexion.
  • Drink water – plenty of it, balancing your diet and liquid intake.
  • Give cigarettes a skip – nicotine doesn’t do you any favours, and tell-tale smoking lines form earlier on your lips.
  • Try to avoid excessive alcohol – not always the fun option, but the sensible one if you want to take care of your face and liver.
  • Do your best to follow a regular exercise routine. An early morning walk, lunch time gym session or evening salsa class – whatever works for you.
  • Avoid eating trans fats and saturated fats as they aren’t great for your face or your ‘bottom-line’.
  • Adopt a skin care routine that is suited to your skin type, and follow it morning and night.
  • Never let it be said that we said, ‘Do this, do that, do the next thing.’ Rather, just do what you can, when you can.
  • Like all things, let common-sense prevail.

The above are all good habits, but may take time to establish. 

Skincare products that can help you to look younger for longer. 

What do you look for in an anti-ageing skincare range? Timeless Skin? Should it be free of drying alcohol? Would you like it free of preservatives? Would you prefer it without soap? You would expect that it is never tested on animals. But what if you could have all of this and more? 

Timeless Skin harnesses the power of nature and matches it with scientific know-how, using internationally renowned cosmetic actives. In short you have a range inspired by nature and underpinned by science. Can’t do better than that, really.

Take care.


Five common causes for impotence or erectile dysfunction

Five common causes for impotence or erectile dysfunction

Five common causes for impotence.

Impotence is a condition that consistently affects a man’s ability to achieve or maintain an erection, or ability to achieve ejaculation. It’s a form of erectile dysfunction (ED).

There can be several contributing factors for impotence. These include both emotional and physical disorders. 

Approximately 50 percent of men ages 40 to 70 experience some ED at one time or another and the risk of impotence increases with age.

(Source: The Merck Manual).

Impotence more often than not has a negative effect on more than sex life, causing depression, stress and low self-esteem.

It is a complicated problem. Here are five of the most common potential causes to help you understand why you may be experiencing impotence or erectile dysfunction.

1. Endocrine Diseases

The body’s endocrine system produces hormones that regulate metabolism, sexual function, reproduction, mood, and much more.

Diabetes is an example of an endocrine disease. A side effect associated with chronic diabetes is nerve damage which can affect penis sensation. Other diabetic complications are impaired blood flow and hormone levels. Both of which can contribute to impotence.

2. Neurological and nerve disorders.

Several neurologic conditions can increase the risk for impotence as impaired nerve function can affect the brain’s ability to communicate with the reproductive system. Neurological disorders that may be associated with impotence include:

  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • brainor spinal tumors
  • multiple sclerosis
  • stroke
  • temporal lobe epilepsy

Men who’ve had surgery on their prostate gland may also experience nerve damage which may cause impotence.

Activities such as long distance bicycle, bike or horse riding which involve prolonged pressure on the buttocks or genitals may cause temporary impotence.

3. Medication.

Certain medications can affect blood flow, though we strongly warn against stopping prescribed medication without consulting your doctor.

Medications known to cause impotence include:

  • alpha-adrenergic blockers
  • beta-blockers
  • cancer chemotherapy medications
  • central nervous system depressants
  • central nervous system stimulants
  • diuretics
  • selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors
  • synthetic hormones

4. Heart-related conditions.

Any condition that affects the heart and its ability to pump blood properly can cause impotence. Without enough blood flow to the penis, an erection cannot be achieved or maintained.

A condition called Atherosclerosis causes blood vessels to become clogged. High cholesterol and high blood pressure (hypertension) are also associated with increased risks for impotence.

5. Lifestyle and emotional problems.

To achieve an erection, they need an emotional ‘excited’ response. When you are experiencing an emotional disorder, it affects the ability to become sexually excited.  

Depression, anxiety and fatigue can hinder sexual arousal. 

Performance anxiety (not to be under-estimated) can be a cause of impotence. 

Abuse of drugs like cocaine and amphetamines as well as alcohol can also cause impotence.

Types of acne scarring.

There are two types of acne scars; pitted or pigmented.

Pitted scars happen when the underlying skin tissue has been damaged. Pigmented scars (either red or brown) are marks left behind after the acne has cleared up.

Acne scars are most likely to be caused when the acne has been squeezed or pinched or when the acne was particularly severe. Acne scars may take twelve months to heal on their own, however healing differs from person to person. Some people and severe cases of acne may have scars that simply never heal. Like all things, prevention, in this case, of scarring, is better than cure.

To address scars, for best results, it’s best to use an acne scar treatment as soon as possible after the scars appear.

Acne medication and creams.

There are a number of medications; creams and acne blemish treatments that can be used to reduce the appearance of acne scars. When choosing an acne scar treatment, you need to consider the severity of your acne scars, the type of acne scars you have and the type of skin you have. It is recommended that you talk to your dermatologist, doctor, pharmacist or beautician who can advise you on the best type of treatment for your acne scars and skin.
