Chia is being considered one of the super foods of 2012. Whole and ground chia seeds are being added to fruit drinks, snack foods and cereals and sold on their own to be baked into cookies and sprinkled on yogurt. Recognition of its nutritional value can be traced as far back as the Aztecs. (source: NY TIMES)
Chiaseed is a species of flowering plant in the mint family. Native to central and southern Mexico and Guatemela, its nutritious seed provides calcium and protein to body tissues. Also rich in boron, the seed helps the body assimilate and use up calcium.
Now, I'm really loving chiaseed because aside from my resolution to be healthier and fit this year, it could really moisturize the skin!! FYI, the seed can soak up 10x its weight in water. When applied or consumed, the seed can help you stay hydrated longer!
Now, naturalism-based cosmetic brand, THEFACESHOP, has brought the ultimate weapon against dry skin for all. "An innovative natural skincare set that brings superb moisture to your skin has arrived! Main ingredients based on natural Chiaseed with its massive hydration within, CHIASEED series is here to cast SPELL on those who are hungry for naturally glowing skin" In long term, of course this would boost skin's immune system and make it healthier and not prone to damage.
I'm just so excited to try this product. I still believe that my oily skin is a symptom of a thirsty one, especially now that it's still very cold!
Moist skin comes with 5 promises made by THEFACESHOP!
• 1. Contains 100% CHIASEED extracts instead of water
• 2. Uses organic CHIASEED (manufactured via the Fresh Extraction method within 24 hours)
• 3. A Moisture Hug System
• 4. Formula without 7 additives
• 5. Dermatology tested
It also has Camomile for sensitive ones so it's good for everyone. It's also suitable for guys!! I'm just so excited to try and review this, and hopefully have luminous moist skin like Koreans! ;)
