ZEN a state of calm attentiveness in which one's actions are guided by intuition rather than by conscious effort. We see Zen Lifestyle as an intuitive way of living. When we apply Zen to various aspects of our lives, for example our Beauty + Wellness routines, we are intuitively guided to use products that are more in alignment with our natural selves. By seeking out organic options, and keeping a clean diet, etc. we are leveling up our state of being.
VIBES Lifestyle Curated Collections are meant to enhance your Inspired Life! We want you to Be Well in all aspects, and we don't think it has to be a complicated process. That is why we have personally tried many products to find the best of the best, and we offer those collections to you on vibeslifestyle.com so that you can take the guess-work out of finding what's right for you!
We have to take care of ourselves one way or another, and that means different things to different people. Some people put more emphasis on Beauty, and some put more emphasis on Wellness, while some are able to maintain a healthy balance of both. Where do you land? Is there something that you feel has been lacking in your life? Don't feel bad, most of us fall short of our own expectations, and that is okay because each day is a new opportunity to begin again.
Beauty doesn't always mean what we think it means. Our interpretation of Beauty, is maintaining what God gave you. Taking care of your skin, hair, nails, body and all that you are physically made of is a great way to honor your temple. Replenishing the nutrients that are lost over time, cleansing away the dirt and debris that sinks into and excretes from our pores, removing the toxins, and so on is essential to an overall healthy lifestyle.
Wellness is an ongoing job that never ends. We must always be cognizant of what is going on and inside of our bodies. We need our bodies to last as long as we do, and the world is filled with things that can easily destroy or deteriorate the body over time. Nutrition is a very important element that we must stay mindful of, but so is mental clarity, well-being and peace of mind.
VIBES Beauty Collection is comprised of several reputable brands. First we will look at RMS Beauty, a leader and powerhouse in the world of Green Beauty. The Founder, Rose-Marie Swift has been making beautiful faces more beautiful, backstage and behind the camera for more than three decades, working with some of the most prestigious models, actors, photographers and magazines in the industry. With passion, wit, wisdom and legendary skill, Rose-Marie is a pioneer who, over 12 years ago, developed the holy grail of makeup—a line of living-ingredient-based products that offer true artist-quality performance.
Every RMS Beauty product is a versatile multitasker that’s approachable, uncomplicated, and intuitive to use. So you get high-quality results every time, no matter how much time you have for your makeup routine. RMS Beauty has been setting the standard for clean ingredients since 2009. In the world of today, clean beauty isn’t all the same. Our living ingredients set RMS apart, bringing the energy of raw, food grade, organic, wildcrafted and natural ingredients to your skin, in as close to their fresh-picked state as possible.
RMS Beauty is all about the radiance. And it doesn’t just come from an application technique, or covering up your unique self. It comes from living ingredients that take care of your skin while bringing out the best in your features. It’s one of those sensations you have to experience to believe. We recommend trying the Living Luminizer and Lip-2-Cheek, as they are the go-to's for quick + easy application for a nice, natural glow, and pop of color for your lips, eyes, and cheeks!
Next we will move on to Zyderma Skincare, created by Kelly Muciy. Kelly knows that there are a great number of factors that can contribute to the appearance of problem skin, including a wide array of environmental microorganisms.
Microorganisms are also a natural part of our skin flora. Our skin actively manages the population of the approximately 2,000 different species that reside on our skin (or biome) through sloughing, continuous cell turnover, sebum production and other mechanisms. When this system is compromised, the number & type of microbes can become unbalanced.
Throughout the centuries silver is used for its ability to maintain the balance of skin flora and help reduce the appearance of problem skin. Studies have shown that micronized silver cleanses the skin of microbes and reduce the appearance of problem skin.
Upon application, the cream dissipates leaving the micronized silver particles on the surface and within the folds of the skin. Until washed off, the silver continuously releases ions, which cleanse the skin of environmental microbes.
Ionization is the result of micronized silver particles exposed to a moist environment on the skin’s surface. Released silver ions (Ag+) first bind themselves to microbes, then both deactivate the transport systems and disrupt cell membranes of bacteria to prevent cell division. Without energy production, bacteria can no longer proliferate.
Micronized silver also deodorizes, as its activity reduces odor causing bacteria. Micronized Silver is a pure, elementary silver manufactured using a unique process that does not produce any harmful byproducts or chemicals.
We recommend trying the Gentle Foaming Cleanser, because not only do we love the eco-friendly refillable bottle, but this delicate and well-balanced formula with its rich long-lasting foam provides a gentle and effective cleansing for a variety of skin types, while respecting the barrier function of the epidermis.
The formula is a synergistic combination of delicate surfactants derived from oat (Avena Sativa) lipoamino acids designed to selectively cleanse impurities from the skin without stripping the lipid barrier. This sebo-normalizing activity helps reduce the appearance of irritation associated with traditional cleansers while leaving the skin’s protective barrier intact.
In addition, aloe leaf juice, provides hydration and a multitude of nourishing plant compounds, while hydrolyzed corn starch & beet root extract help increase the skin’s concentration of natural moisturizing factors (NMF) for a long-lasting moisturizing effect.
As we transition over to Wellness, we will take a look at Live Conscious. The reason we love Live Conscious is because they offer a variety of clinically proven products designed to balance your mind, body and spirit in an evolving world.
