Thank you to everyone who sent in their questions on Instagram — I love hearing from all of you and I wish I could answer every question. Answering five of the most asked below :)
FYI I will be doing this at the end of every month so make sure you’re following my personal account on Instagram @jessegolden and subscribe to my email list HERE so you don't miss your question potentially being answered!
Q1: I have really blue eyes and I want to try the lash serum. I'm scared of eye color changing.
This is something you do not have to worry about with our lash serum, and it's one of the reasons why we created it. The most common and popular lash serums on the market contain prostaglandins - hormones that can indeed help make your lashes grow longer but not without potential side effects such as hair loss, eye color change, and fat loss around the eyes- giving a sunken, aged look. Our Lash serum is formulated without hormones but with three of the most promising peptides for lash growth and plant extracts that support the long-term health of your lashes. I wrote an entire blog post on this topic when we launched. You can read that HERE and learn more about Long Lash HERE.
Q2: Anything you apply specifically under the eye area? Any tips for fighting crows feet?
All the products that I use on my face; Aura Beauty Mist, Youth Beauty Face Oil, Heal All Oil, Instant Glow Facial Mask, and the beauty tools. I also use it around my eyes. These products contain key ingredients like Retinoic Acid, Tremella mushroom, peptides, and powerful antioxidants, all chosen to enhance the skin's texture and reduce the signs of aging, particularly around the eyes.
To maintain the youthful appearance of the eye area, gentle cleansing practices are essential, as well as avoiding any harsh rubbing or tugging when removing eye makeup. For this purpose, I highly recommend our Cleansing Ritual Kit, not only to protect your lashes and brows but also to pamper your skin and delicate eye area.
For a holistic approach to maintaining a youthful look, incorporating regular eye exercises and facial yoga techniques can be quite effective. These exercises help strengthen the muscles surrounding the eyes and reduce the appearance of crow's feet.
Furthermore, our Gold Firming Face Wand, used in conjunction with gua sha practices and sonic vibration therapy, has proven to work wonders on the skiDedicatinging 5-15 minutes to this routine can yield remarkable resullastingast up to 24 hours.
Remember, maintaining skin health goes beyond topical treatments. Staying hydrated and considering overall well-being are equally vital aspects of a comprehensive skincare regimen.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), specific facial features and lines are believed to reflect the health of internal organs. Crow's feet, those fine lines around the eyes, are often associated with the Liver's health in TCM.
According to TCM principles, the Liver plays a crucial role in regulating Qi (vital energy) and blood flow in the body. Imbalances or stagnation in Liver Qi can manifest as various external signs, including wrinkles and eye lines. Stress, emotional imbalances, and lifestyle factors can all impact the Liver's function in TCM.
It's important to emphasize that TCM views the body holistically, recognizing the interconnectedness between different organs and systems. Therefore, addressing Liver imbalances, along with other relevant organs and systems, is often a fundamental aspect of TCM treatments aimed at improving the appearance of crow's feet and enhancing overall health and well-being.
TCM practitioners employ various approaches, including acupuncture, herbal remedies, dietary adjustments, and lifestyle modifications, to harmonize Liver function and address the root causes of skin issues like crow's fee. Suppose you're intrigued by the potential benefits of TCM for skincare concerns. In that case, ns, I recommend consulting a licensed TCM practitioner who can offer a personalized assessment and treatment plan tailored to your unique health and needs.
Q3: Can the body oil be used on face for a nice glow? Trying to avoid tanners.
Q4: Biggest misconceptions of traditional skincare approaches?
For years, the beauty industry has peddled a narrative, one that sells us both the problem and the solution. It's a cycle where products that promise to fix issues often exacerbate them, leading to a continuous loop of searching for remedies. I firmly believe that the core issue lies in this approach – it's time to get to the root cause once and for all.
The truth is, our skin possesses innate intelligence, a remarkable ability to thrive when we embrace simplicity and the right non-toxic ingredients. The biggest misconceptions of traditional skincare practices include:
My guiding principle has remained unwavering: Nature first. I firmly believe that the closer we align our skincare routines with the natural world, the more enduring our skin's health and radiance will be in the long run.
