Feeling the maya Chia love!
I know, I know, at this point you've heard just about EVERYTHING there is to hear about the gorgeous Maya Chia formulations. In the remote chance that you haven't heard about Maya Chia, click here to check out this amazing indie brand!
In a nut shell: Maya Chia uses only the purest, ethically sourced, and organic/wildcrafted/natural ingredients from all over the world. They never use PEGs, Phthalates, Parabens, SLS, synthetic fragrance, and are all crafted in the USA. The entire line is based around Supercritical Chia Seed Oil which contains tons of antioxidants, essential fatty acids, and is proven to decrease water loss and increase skin hydration. To learn more about Supercritical (aka CO2 extraction) click here.
Well, I'm here to show you how just 2 Maya Chia products can replace 10 of your regular products while not sacrificing quality, performance, and keeping your carry on bag a lot lighter!
Traveling Light While Ejoying the Luxe life
Travel is the name of the game in our family. We work so that we can afford to play! You know what I mean?
Glass bottles are wonderful for sustainability, protecting the potency of your products, and just being a pleasure to look at and experience. However, they are ridiculously heavy!
Enter The Super Couple Face Oil and Highlight of the Day = The New Travel Power Couple.
The Super Couple
The Super Couple Ultra Luxe Facial Oil (check it out here) is an amazing oil-serum that is a fabulous multitasker. It contains asthaxanthin (a high powered antioxidant from algae) which not is a sustainable and renewable resource and also protects your skin from sun damage. It is a pigment that algae produce to protect themselves from UV damage and is said to be at least 65X stronger than Vit C. I personally take this as an internal supplement to give my skin an added UV protection boost from the inside. Great stuff!
This protective factor, mixed with the Supercritical Chia Seed Oil (Super Couple's other main ingredient) makes for a deeply hydrating, fast absorbing serum/moisturizer in one easy to apply product. You can even pat it around the orbital bone (bone around the eye) to replace your eye cream when traveling- see ya later crow's feet!
The Highlight of the Day
The second part of this new Travel Power Duo is the Highlight of the Day. This highlighter is incredibly dense with mica (a mineral) so make sure to shake it up well before using so that the mica particles are evenly distributed. This comes in three different colors so check them out here to find your fave!
This highlighter is fabulous for so many things! I use a drop in my foundation or my tinted moisturizer for an all over glow (I use The Golden Hour for just a soft glow) and then another drop dispersed onto the high points of the face (brow bone, center of nose, cheek bones, etc).
Now here's where it gets exciting! I tried my hardest to fit both of these products, PLUS the Maya Chia Highlight of the Day Body Serum for an all over body glow, PLUS the Maya Chia The Great Cleanse Oil Cleanser. This was not going to work. However, I wasn't going to give up. I NEED that glow, especially on vacation!
So I started experimenting and I found:
*(3-4) Drops of MC Highlight of the Day in Golden Hour + 5-6 drops of the Super Couple Face Oil = a gorgeous body oil with a sheen comparable to the Highlight of the Day Body Serum. You can add more or less depending on the level of shimmer you want but it works beautifully!
*To Cleanse: Work 4-5 drops of the Super Couple Face Oil into your skin before cleansing with a tiny amount of cleanser. The oil breaks down your makeup, SPF, minerals, etc. and keeps the cleanser from drying out your skin. It's a fabulous pre-cleanse!
*Hair oil/frizz preventer/hair gloss: 2-3 drops (adjust according to hair thickness/length) worked into wet hair has kept my fine, frizz-prone curls bouncy, curly, and soft through a week in the humid rainforest. Add 1-2 drops of the Highlight of the Day into your hair for a soft shimmer and shine!
*Pat (1) drop of the Super Couple around the orbital bone (eye bone) and into the lip line/lips for a eye serum and lip serum treat.
* Use (1) drop of the Super Couple on cuticles as a cuticle hydrator. I wash my hands like a fiend when traveling so this is a life saver for my hands and cuticles!
*Last but not least- you can simply use a few drops of the Super Couple on damp skin as your regular body hydrator if needed.
That's 10 Products that are covered by just 2!
So let's recap: these two products, The Super Couple Ultra-Luxe Facial Oil + Highlight of the Day Facial Highlighter can do the jobs of :
(1) Body Oil
(2) All Over Body Highlighter/shimmer
(3) Cuticle Oil
(4) Hair Oil/Styling Oil
(5) Facial Highlighter
(6) Pre-Cleanse Oil to remove makeup, SPF, and more
(7) Antioxidant Facial Serum
(8) Facial Oil/Moisturizer
(9) Eye Cream
(10) Lip Balm
Traveling is exhilarating and stressful (in a good way) all at once. Try these two products to focus on the experience (and less on the shlepping) but still look good doing it! Snag all of your Maya Chia products here!
