Organic Skin Care Powerhouse From The Sea of Galilee: Lavido

From our first visit to Lavido’s breathtaking organic farm located in the heart of the Galilee, we knew this product line was something very special. Lavido products combine the energy and vitality of the best organic, raw, plant-based ingredients with the invigorating benefits of volcanic thermal springs and purified waters from the Sea of Galilee. And, in a short time, Lavido has developed a loyal U.S. based following.

Though the entire Lavido line is stellar, we wanted to highlight some of the unique, must-have products we especially love from this line.

A Serious Anti-aging Moisturizer

One of the active ingredients in the Age Away Hydrating Cream is organic, cold-pressed evening primrose oil, which gives the cream its yellow hue…not to mention many skin-saving benefits! Evening primrose oil contains a natural antioxidant that helps reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Thanks to another ingredient, attar of rose, it smells wonderful, too. This stuff works miracles: You can feel it hydrating and plumping up your skin almost instantly, yet it has a surprisingly light feeling on the skin.

Master Anti-aging Face Oils

The Replenishing Facial Serum is not really a serum, but a luxurious oil blend, including organic pomegranate seed oil, distilled lemon myrtle oil and cold pressed mandarin oil. The oil extracted from the fruits’ seeds contain high concentrations of fatty acids that prevent premature aging and appearance of wrinkles. It also has healing properties that even out skin tone and texture and boost skin’s natural luster and vitality. A little of this serum goes a long way; two drops is really all you need. Replenishing Facial Serum is ideal for dry and/or mature skin, and is fabulous for use as a night treatment, especially as the weather gets colder.

Anti-aging Eye Cream

Hyaluronic Acid Alert Eye Cream is like bright eyes in a bottle. Formulated with plant-based hyaluronic acid, cold-pressed avocado oil, organic pomegranate seed oil and citrus extracts, it absorbs right into the skin and immediately hydrates, de-puffs and brightens the eye area. It is also clinically proven to significantly improve skin texture, firmness and elasticity.

Lavido Antiaging Facial SkincareLavido Utilizes Plant-based Ingredients

We love Lavido’s unique plant-based formulations. Here are just a few of the ingredients used in Lavido products:

Pumpkin Seed Oil

This cold-pressed oil is steeped in zinc and vitamin E, a super antioxidant, which combine to improve skin tone, rejuvenate the skin, and defy the aging process. This ingredient can be found in Lavido’s Age Away Hydrating Cream.

Rose Hips

Two types of rose hip are used in some of our favorite Lavido products. One is the food-grade extract in Alert Eye Cream, which provides an abundance of vitamin C. The other is infused oil, which is used in the Invigorating Facial Serum to calm, cool and soothe puffy skin.

Organic Bulgarian Lavender

Pure concentrations of lavender oil extract contain disinfecting properties that aid in the healing of scars and dark spots as well as the reduction of redness and irritation. And of course, there’s lavender’s legendary aromatherapeutic benefits. Lavender can be found in many of Lavido’s products including Replenishing and Invigorating Serum, Hydrating Facial Toner, Purifying Face Cleanser, Gentle Exfoliator Peeling Cream and Bulgarian Lavender and Avocado Oil Aromatic Body Lotion.

Carrot Root Extract

A root vegetable with ample benefits for the skin and hair, carrot is rich in beta carotene, vitamins A and C, minerals and antioxidants that combine to cleanse, brighten, and tone the skin, while helping to defy the aging process. Lavido Purifying Face Cleanser and Hydrating Facial Toner both contain Carrot Root Extract.

Creating effective skin care products is no small feat! We love spending time with our brand founders to find out what inspired them to create their amazing products. Want to learn more? We sat down with Lavido Founder, Ido Magal, to discuss the genesis of Lavido.

Beauty Essentials for Your Gym Bag

As a working mom who likes to work out, I often leave my house at 7:30am with all the supplies I need for my 7:30pm gym class…I don’t have time to go home between work, kids and class. Because of this hustle, packing my gym bag with the proper products has become a crucial life skill. What do I ABSOLUTELY need? What’s extraneous? What’s a little bit of a luxury that will make a big difference to me at 9pm? All this and more is taken into consideration.

Vine Minus Ion Care Water Does. It. All.

Fixes post-gym crazy hair. Is a great antibacterial pre-workout skin prep and post-workout skin refresher. Due to its germ-killing abilities, you can even use it to wipe down your yoga mat after class. (Read more about the benefits of Care Water.)

Mio Skincare Clean Slate Swipes & Ursa Major Essential Face Wipes

I’ve gushed about both of these products so many times, I’m hoping you’re already packing them in your gym bag on the regular…both are spreading like a virus among my fellow gym members. They come individually wrapped, so they are super compact. I shove a few of each in my bag on Sunday night so they’re there when I need them. Each jumbo Mio Skincare Clean Slate Swipe is formulated with natural ingredients to help prevent blemishes and post-gym breakouts, as well as aloe vera and omega oils to exfoliate and moisturize skin. They efficiently & effectively remove makeup, sweat and oil. Their cucumber and mint infused scent makes me feel like I’m bathing in a huge glass of the cucumber water I sip while at the spa. Mio Swipes are suitable for both face and body, so I like to use one all over post-workout (it is THAT big). Pre-workout, when just my face needs a cleaning, I bring an Ursa Major Essential Wipe specifically for that task. These award-winning wipes also cleanse, exfoliate and hydrate skin to leave it (and you!) feeling refreshed and so clean, clean.

Yu-be Moisturizing Skin Cream

I love kickboxing for so many reasons. What it’s doing to my knuckles is not one of them. To prevent farmhand hands, I make sure to coat my knuckles in this ultra-protective, healing cream before I put my gloves on. If you’ve used Yu-be Moisturizing Skin Cream before, you know its myriad uses, from nose to toes. The one ounce tube is convenient enough to keep in my handbag, so I have it even on my rest days.

Mio Skincare Workout Wonder Invigorating Muscle Motivating Gel

My shoulders have been a tension center for years. Building muscle in that area has only exacerbated the situation. Well, this little bottle earns every word in its name. It is perfect for pre and post-workout, as it not only invigorates muscles, but also helps to soothe them. Extracts of Arnica, Horse Chestnut, Murumuru Butter, Spearmint and natural Magnesium increase circulation, ease aches and inflammation and help speed up recovery. This uplifting cocktail of herbs and extracts leaves my body feeling cooled, soothed and ache-free. Though it’s called a gel, Mio Skincare Workout Wonder is a cream…and a creamy cream at thatzero annoying stickiness. And like every single Mio Skincare products, it smells fantastic.

DERMAdoctor MED e TATE Antiperspirant Wipes

Believe the hype around these wipes! They really stop the schvitz without the gross, caked-on feeling of traditional antiperspirants. They are also so gentle. Trying to apply even natural deodorants right after shaving has often made my underarms feel like fire pits. MED e TATE Wipes are Hypoallergenic, non-irritating, non-comedogenic and oil, fragrance, dye, paraben, gluten and phthalate free.

Shower At The Gym? You Need These

Binchotan Facial Cleansing Mask – This 3-in-1 face wash is downright magical. It is simultaneously the gentlest yet deepest cleansing wash I’ve ever used. It also works in 30 seconds flat. And EVERYONE will tell you how amazing your skin looks. Trust me.

Alchimie Forever Dry Skin Balm – What no one told me about working out was how callused my heels would get. Slathering this balm on them straight out of the shower has really helped. Don’t stop there, though. If you shower in the gym, go ahead and apply this rich balm from the neck down.

Philip Kingsley Try Me Kit – This trio will take up hardly any real estate in your gym bag. Pick the shampoo and conditioner that best suits your hair type; all kits come with the award-winning Elasticizer pre-shampoo treatment. Ready for the best trick EVER? Apply Elasticizer pre-workout, then throw your hair up in a ponytail. Elasticizer will help keep your hair in check and the increased body heat will help the product work better. BOOM. Easiest multitasking you’ll ever do.
