Soothing, moisturizing, and protective, Cucumber Seed Oil provides numerous skin care benefits. Likely originating in India around 3,000 years ago before spreading to China, cucumbers have been used for centuries as a healing and soothing skin care ingredient. Rich in linoleic acid, Vitamin E, and other nutrients, Cucumber Seed Oil is an excellent anti-aging ingredient keeping the skin’s protective barrier strong and improving firmness and elasticity. Both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, this versatile oil diminishes signs of aging while promoting cell regeneration.
According to skin-care experts, overwashing your face is common — and it can be just as troublesome as not washing your face enough. If you have dry or flaky skin that’s not just seasonal you could be overdoing it. There are a couple ways to get back on track.

This anti-inflammatory calming serum relieves dry, itchy and allergy-prone skin and is a lifesaver for those suffering from eczema and other skin disorders. Gently apply a few drops of Calming Serum to face, neck and chest both in the morning and evening and voilà!
October is the month of harvest. Communities all over the world harvest their vegetables, grains and fruits before winter. Both the Bay Area and Hungary’s wine country also harvests grapes during this time. Some of my favorite memories of my childhood were during the wine harvest when I was able to participate in the crush. I remember stomping on the grapes with my mother, sister and other women and laughing for hours. Nowadays the crush is completed via machines, but I think back fondly of those times.
I hope you are able to celebrate some of the local harvest festivals in our area and the last of the warm weather. The holiday season is just around the corner, which means needing to look our best for all the parties.
- 5-10 grapes
- 1 tsp oat flour
- 1 tsp yogurt

When we think about summer a certain set of images comes to mind: beaches, clear skies, sunshine and tan skin. Unfortunately, that “healthy glow” often has a dark side — skin cancer is one of the most frequently occurring cancers in the United States, and ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun is the number one cause of skin cancer. On the bright side, it’s 2019 and thanks to technological advances (and great fashion) we can still embody a summer look without putting our health at risk.
Let’s start with self tanners, which have come a long way since the early 2000s orange Oompa Loompa shades we used to see. There’s a variety of lotions, sprays and even towels presently sold in stores and online that promise a natural looking, streak-free glow. For an extra benefit, layer your favorite self tanner on top of TITOK naturals Antioxidant Serum. This high potency multi-C cocktail drenches the skin in an infusion of powerful antioxidants and offers advanced protection from photo aging, UV damage and hyperpigmentation. Loaded with good-for-you ingredients like astaxanthin — the strongest antioxidant vitamin in nature — and ferulic acid, which neutralizes free radicals and helps to prevent UV damage, TITOK naturals Antioxidant Serum will keep your skin vibrant long after the summer days are over.
Don’t forget to stay hydrated and have a gorgeous season!
