Our Bonne Foi products will help to keep the skin on your face and neck looking soft and lovely all through the winter, but what about the skin on the rest of your body. Most of us don’t think about how important our skin is to our health. If your skin becomes cracked and dry, it can cause sores and bleeding; Once those become infected there is a whole host of things that can occur.
So what can we do to keep our skin soft and moist? I found some good information onWebMD:
Your skin is your body’s first line of defense against the elements. When sun, wind, and cold leave skin dry and itchy, don’t hide it under long pants and gloves. Replenish it!
To get the smooth, sleek skin you’ll want to show off, learn these eight top causes of, and fixes for dry skin.
1. Winter Weather
When the temperature drops, the humidity level plunges too. Dry air leaves skin parched. “Once the weather starts to change, I see patients coming in complaining of dry, itchy skin,” says Linda Stein Gold, MD, clinical research director for the dermatology department at Detroit’s Henry Ford Hospital.
Turning up the thermostat doesn’t help, either. Indoor heating strips even more moisture from the air — and your skin.
Quick Fix: Dial Up the Humidity
Install a humidifier in your home to keep air moist. Set humidity at a constant 45% to 55%, and the temperature at a balmy 68 degrees Fahrenheit.
Before you go outside in wintry weather, create your own moisture barrier. Protect your most sensitive parts — lips, face, and hands — with a scarf and gloves.
2. Steamy Showers
Setting the shower to steamy soothes your body, but it won’t do your skin any favors. “I know it feels wonderful to stand in a really hot shower… but it can dry out the natural oils in our skin more quickly,” Stein Gold says.
Standing under that hot spray long enough to belt out your favorite tune is also a no-no. The longer you linger in the shower, the more you dry out your skin.
Quick Fix: Cleanse Coolly and Quickly
Dial down the shower temperature to lukewarm, and keep showers short. Five minutes is enough to get clean without over-drying. Save the singing for your car.
3. Moisture-Robbing Soaps
Don’t put just any bar of soap into your shower dish — they’re not all the same. Wash with a harsh soap and you’ll send your skin’s natural moisture barrier straight down the drain.
Quick Fix: Go Mild
“We recommend using a mild, fragrance-free soap that moisturizes as it cleanses,” Stein Gold says. Bar or liquid doesn’t matter, but choose a soap that’s specially formulated for dry skin.”
Your skin is important to your health, so don’t forget to feed it from the inside out. Instead of rich, creamy dressings on your salads, make a dressing of olive oil and vinegar with just a touch of seasonings to spice it up. Eat more fish and slip in a few avocados on that sandwich.
Comments Off on Why Is Night Time Skin Care Important?
When we go to sleep at night, our bodies are still working for us. Our minds sort out the issues of the day in our dreams. Our respiratory system keeps our breathing regular and our hearts keep pumping, moving blood through our arteries.
This is a prime time to take care of our skin, to help it be stronger for the new day that awaits. To that end, Bonne Foi has products formulated especially for the night time. Our Two Layers Night Serum, works in harmony with your body’s natural processes. The lactic acid in the Two Layers Night Serum intensifies your skin’s acidity, helping to exfoliate dead skin cells, while the Serum’s concentrated seaweed polysaccharid extract provides rejuvenating nourishment. As an added bonus, this special formulation can help lighten age spots and smooth out uneven skin tones.
Our night cream is also formulated to work while you are sleeping. It is richer than our Day Cream, containing Shea Butter, our unique Seaweed Extracts and other rich ingredients that will help your skin to feel smoother and more supple when you wake up in the morning to face a new day.
Even here in Southern California the weather is colder and drier in winter than in the summer time, so on those days when it is particularly cold and dry, it could be a good idea to use the night cream even during daylight hours. We only get one set of skin and it is important to take care of it. Not to just look younger, but also to protect ourselves from the damage that pollutants and sun can cause us.
Comments Off on Fall Skin Care Tips
Summer time is over, despite the heat wave we have experienced here in Orange County, you can still smell a whiff of autumn in the air first thing in the morning. Just because the weather will eventually become cooler and crisper don’t stop using your sunscreen. And remember that the cooler air will also be drier, and that means keeping your skin hydrated is even more important than it was during the summer.
Drink plenty of water, and please, only use soap on your body, never on your face. Soap is very drying and can cause damage to the delicate skin on your face. Bonne Foi has a great Facial Cleanser that will clean your face, but is very gentle on your skin. And using our Night Time products to gently exfoliate while you sleep will help your skin stay soft and smooth.
Once every couple of weeks, mix up a concoction of either coconut oil and granulated sugar, or olive oil and sugar and give your body a soothing scrub down. This will help to exfoliate your skin, while leaving a thin film of oil that will keep you feeling silky all over.
For the cooler weather, it I also good to switch to a heavier, creamier skin moisturizer to protect your skin from the dryin effects of winter wind and cold. The thicker, more oily cream creates a barrier that will keep water in, and the cold dry air away from your skin. And don’t forget your lip balm, or gloss. Nothing makes you look less healthy and vibrant than dry, cracked lips.
Use all of our luxurious Bonne Foi skin care products to keep your face and neck looking fresh, dewey and healthy, and don’t forget to eat plenty of fruits, veggies and fish!!!

Comments Off on Fresh and Youthful Skin
How to keep your skin looking fresh and youthful? The best thing you can do is use our Bonne Foi product line. In conjunction with that it is important to spend as little time in the sun as possible. You will want to be outside enough to keep your levels of Vitamin D up, of course, but you need to wear sunscreen and if I can talk you into it, a hat as well.
It is also important to learn how to handle stress. Stress and alchohol as well as cigarette smoke are really hard on our skin. Don’t forget to eat your fruits and veggies because we know for certain they help you insides stay fresh and the colors of the veggies can help your complexion look rosy as well. But just know that no matter how hard we try, genetics and the aging process will have an effect on our skin. We know that for women in particular, our Hormone levels change as we age; we lose Estrogen, our skin tone changes. Those of us who had oily skin growing up may start to experience patches of dry skin. Our pores become larger and wrinkles begin to form and deepen with each day.
You can’t stop all the signs of aging, or turn back the clock. But there is hope. All of our Bonne Foi products have been developed based upon award-winning research and use natural ingredients to produce a more youthful-looking skin texture. We incorporate the use of seaweed, an organic source of vitamins, minerals, omega-3 , omega-6 and anti-oxidants into our products. Based upon Nobel Prize winning research we know these nutrients are key ingredients to repairing and rebuilding cell structure. In turn that helps our skin stay beautiful.
So to recap eating green leafy vegetables and taking natural, plant-based supplements which are high in beta carotene and vitamin C, as well as drinking plenty of water and green tea, are known to help keep skin and hair in top shape. Use your sunscreen, and use your Bonne Foi.

Comments Off on Seaweed & Bonne Foi
Why is seaweed such a vital ingredient in formulations which promote good health and heaing? Why do we at Bonne Foi use it in the formula for our skin care line? It’s not pretty to look at. It doesn’t have a pleasant odor. Why then is it so important?
Seaweed lives and thrives in the ocean. The ocean contains minerals, vitamins and nutrients that have been proven to promote healing for centuries. There is mention of the ancient cultures, including the Romans used seaweed to heal burns, cuts ad even reduce swelling. In Japan the people include seaweed in their diet, and that fact is thought to help keep the level of cancer very low in that country. We like it for all of those reasons, but mainly for it’s anti-inflammatory properties.
You say you don’t care how good it is for you, you would never eat seaweed in any form? Well you are probably already consuming plenty of it without knowing. If you eat sushi, it’s in there. If you brush your teeth its in your toothpaste. Like a little jelly on your toast? Think seaweed. And for those of you who love your dairy products, it is in your yogurts, chocolate milk, and health drinks.
Quote from the www.skinstore.com/seaweed site:
“ A traditional marine cure and as a relaxing treatment, seaweed baths were popular during Edwardian times, particularly in Britain and Ireland where seaweed was indigenous to the area. Ancient Greeks believed that seaweed could encourage longevity while preserving their health. Seaweed baths and treatments were commonly used to treat ailments assumed to be the result of a mineral imbalance. Steaming seaweed produces oils filled with minerals, vitamins, proteins, and complex polysaccharides. Since the oils become suspended in the water, they are readily absorbed by the skin’s pores, which have become opened by the steam. Credited with detoxifying the body, seaweed offers restorative capabilities. Seaweed treatments, wraps, and poultices are used to remove toxins while also infusing the skin with the rich nutrients found in seaweed…..
Seaweed offers conditioning capabilities for the skin as well as for the hair and is used in treatments for cellulite and aging.
Absorbing large concentrations of chelated minerals daily, seaweed is filled with Selenium, Magnesium, Potassium, Sodium, Calcium, Phosphorus, Iron, Manganese, and Zinc. It is also vitamin rich, containing up to a dozen different vitamins (A1, C, E, K, B1, B2, B6, and B12). Seaweed offers conditioning capabilities for the skin as well as for the hair and is used in treatments for cellulite and aging. Hair products containing seaweed boost moisture and shine, improving the look and feel of the hair. Skin products containing seaweed are often non-irritating, while enhancing the skin’s natural glow.”
That is why we use seaweed in our natural skin care line here at Bonne Foi.
Comments Off on 8 Ways to a Healthy Summer
Summer is one of my favorite times of the year, the next most favorite being the fall. I know we all complain about the heat, but here in Huntington Beach it’s usually fairly cool in the morning, hot in the afternoon and it cools down again in the evening.
For those of us with children, summer is our main vacation time. It’s a time to travel, to go to amusement parks, to head to the mountains or beaches. This is family time.
So what can we do to help make certain we stay strong and healthy for what is left of the summer?Eat fresh fruits and vegetables Take a multivitamin Stay hydrated Wash up thoroughly after spending time in public places, and when we are in the large crowd at amusement parks, use sanitizer wipes to keep hands clean Use sunscreen, sunburns are a big cause of pain and discomfort in the immediate, and in the long run set us up for skin cancer STAY Hydrated!! Don’t wait until you are thirsty to drink water. And if you plan on being out in the sun for the entire day, make up some water bottles with plenty of ice and maybe even some lemonade. Children will only drink so much water, but some lemonade that has plenty of ice in it is better than becoming dehydrated. Try to keep stress levels low. It can be difficult with working parents to coordinate day care for children during the summer. Network with other working parents and see if you can help each other out. Instead of each of you having to miss work, perhaps each person takes one day off and takes the others children. Let your children play. Don’t try to make the perfect summer, just have some days where there isn’t a grand plan. Trying too hard to fill every minute with activity can be overwhelming for you and your children
At Bonne Foi, we are lucky to be located in Huntington Beach. Our company is in a location that other’s come to for a vacation, and sometimes a walk along the beach, snow cone in hand, can be the perfect way to spend the afternoon.
Don’t forget your sunscreen, your Keratin Hair treatment, and your Bonne Foi moisture cream.
Comments Off on What Does Bonne Foi Mean?
We have talked about this before, but it’s been a while so let’s address it once more. What does Bonne Foi mean? It means Good Faith. My team and I thought long and hard about this name. We wanted it to reflect our commitment to our products and our customers. As you can well imagine before we chose the name Bonne Foi we bantered around plenty of other names, but when this one came up, we chose it.
Our natural skin care products have been developed using the finest ingredients, exhaustive research, and made with the highest of standards. Although our ingredients are high quality, it was important to us that our natural skin care line be affordable, so we made it our mission to keep our prices reasonable. We wanted a high quality skin care product at a reasonable price and we are proud of what we have made.
Okay, on to the second question, what does it do? In very simple terms, our system of products makes your skin smoother; it tightens pores, and nourishes your skin. It also makes wrinkles disappear, takes away dry, flaky patches of skin and it will eliminate brown sun spots. Bonne Foi’s Seaweed Extract formula helps plump up your skin, while the lactic acid product will gently exfoliate and take away the old, dead skin cells. Our Keratin hair care product infuses the hair shaft with Keratin, and makes your hair stronger and thicker.
Now, on to the last question, exactly how does BonneFoi work? That answer comes directly off the pages of our website, https://bonnefoi.com
“n 2003 Dr. Peter Agre won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his ground-breaking discovery of aquaporins, the water-channel proteins that enable water molecules to pass directly through cell membranes. This work paved the way for Bonne Foi’s innovative natural skin care system, which opens up these water channels to allow even more moisture and nutrition to flow directly into your skin’s cells.
If you’re looking for a natural way to take the best possible care of your skin and hair, then you need to try Bonne Foi’s unique products. Our products are specially formulated to work for people of all ethnicities and on a wide variety of skin and hair types and tones, Bonne Foi has no harsh chemicals and no toxins.
Even though the surface of your skin is normally in a mildly acidic state, during the day your higher activity level increases this acidity. Unfortunately, this lack of pH balance – just at the time when your skin is also being battered by UV rays and exposed to chemicals, toxins and pollutants – helps to accelerate your skin’s aging process.… Read more”
Bonne Foi’s mildly alkaline Cell Rejuvenation Tonic balances out your skin’s pH and opens up the molecular water channels into your skin’s cells, allowing the youth-enhancing nutrients of the Bonne Foi Day Serum to flow in. Many sensitive-skinned men also find that the Cell Rejuvenation Tonic helps decrease the irritation caused by daily shaving.”
Bonne Foi is not just a product which has been designed to make your skin look smoother. It is an entire system that will work together to rebuild your skin. You can use each or the products individually, but for the best possible results, using all , or most of the products in the correct order is the way to go.
From those of us at Bonne Foi, we wish you a bright day, filled with smiles and smooth, glowing skin!!
Comments Off on Natural Skin Care, Huntington Beach
There are countless skin care companies today. Some of them are very expensive and promise they will eliminate all signs of aging. The irony is their models look to be teenagers, made up to look like 20 year olds.
Others take older models, and with just the right lighting, make them look unlined and gorgeous, until you see them without all the special effects when they appear on a talk show. It leaves one wondering how well their products actually work.
Our products can not make a 50 year old look like a 20 year old. Not even surgery can do that. But our Bonne Foi Natural Skin care is formulated based upon a Nobel Prize winning formula, will help you keep your skin looking soft and firm. If you start using it in your twenties, keep using your sunscreen and stay hydrated, your skin won’t have the same wrinkles that your Mom got. If you start using it in your 40’s it will smooth away those fine lines, keep your skin looking fresh and hydrated, and it will eliminate those pesky brown age spots. How do I know? Because I had all of those things when I began using it, and I no longer have those problems.
I also had dry hair. Living in a beach climate is lovely, but we all love spending time out doors, walking on the beach . The wind, sun and salt air can significantly dry out one’s hair, but Bonne Foi’s Keratin Hair treatment will take your dry and sun damaged hair, and repair the hair strands so they are once again strong, healthy looking and shiny. You can also use it to set and style your hair.
We care about your skin, and we hope you love our products, and that you tell your friends and family about them. Remember, Bonne Foi is NOT just skin care for women, plenty of men use it too. Sun damage doesn’t care whether you are male of female. It is equal opportunity!
Keep a watch on our Facebook page and here on our blog for our specials. And remember, if you are introducing our products to friends or family, we do have free samples!! Don’t give away yours!!
