Whether you’re climbing your way up the corporate ladder or overwhelmed with the organizational tasks of home and kids, a luxurious vacation to an exotic paradise may seem like an impossible dream. You can only fantasize about an outdoor massage among fragrant island flowers or a nap after enjoying a brunch ripe with fruits fresh from the vine.
You might not have the time or the money for a sublime spa jaunt, but today, all it takes is a trip to your local supermarket, pharmacy or health food store to help you pretend. The newest grooming and personal care products are bursting with pampering exotic fruit and plant ingredients that won’t just make you feel amazing, you’ll look amazing as well.
Exotic fruits possess a host of beauty benefits. For example, pomegranate and lychee help rid your skin of toxins, smoothing texture and tone. Who knew that kumquat was so rich in ultra-moisturizing vitamin C? Fig can actually calm stressed-out skin. Plus, all these rich ingredients create luscious fragrances that soothe your soul and lift your spirits.
The newest “crop” of exotic personal care products includes Nature’s Gate Organics Fruit Blends – shampoos, conditioners, body lotions and hand soaps – all infused with certified organic plant essences. Exotic fruits and herbal ingredients, including patchouli, rose geranium, wild ginger and red tea, work together to create an amazingly delicious, pampering experience. In addition, these products smell divine and are free of harsh chemicals and animal ingredients.
So, lay back in your bathtub, close your eyes and let the fragrance of faraway lands take you on a journey. You might not end up with a T-shirt souvenir, but you won’t have to hassle with your passport or airport chaos either. And you’ll look marvelous!
