There is a saying that goes “you are what you eat”. At WebMD they explain why that saying holds true: “Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants is good for your whole body, including your skin. Antioxidants such as beta-carotene and vitamins C, E, and A can curb the damage caused by unstable molecules known as free radicals. These molecules can harm skin cells and cause signs of aging.

One of the best ways to get more antioxidants is to eat a wide variety of fruits and vegetables.

“I recommend going for as much variety and color as possible in your diet,” Day says. “Try snacking on blueberries, strawberries, grapefruit, kale, spinach, and different kinds of peppers.” She also suggests adding a little tomato paste, which contains an antioxidant called lycopene, to stir-fried vegetables, brown rice, or quinoa.

Another good idea is to stock your grocery cart with foods that are high in omega-3 fatty acids, including wild salmon, sardines, fortified eggs, and walnuts.

“Omega-3 fatty acids help keep the top outer layer of the skin strong and intact so that external toxins and pollutants are kept out,” says dermatologist David E. Bank, MD, director of the Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic and Laser Surgery in Mount Kisco, N.Y.” 

We have also read studies that show as you eat more of the brightly colored fruits and veggies, your skin tone will actually change. Eating more fruits and veggies with deep red colors, like red peppers, cherries, strawberries will help make your skin tone appear warmer and a little rosier.

What it really boils down to is letting some of the processed foods fade out of your diets and bringing in more fresh foods. That not only helps your heart and body, but it keeps your skin looking healthier and stronger as well.

Bonne Foi

 

 

 

 

 

Cameron Diaz Says She is Looking Forward to Old Age?

Comments Off on Cameron Diaz Says She is Looking Forward to Old Age?

A refreshing look at growing older. Most of us work hard to keep our ages to ourselves, Using every new fangled gimmick to try to get rid of age spots, wrinkles and crows feet. While you can tell when you look at her that Cameron Diaz takes good care of herself, she is not afraid of growing older. She eats well, exercises, take care of her skin, but she is not obsessed:

““I can’t wait to be older,” she says with an ear-to-ear dimpled smile. It’s an unusual thing to hear from an A-lister in Hollywood, where the cult of youth still rules supreme, though Diaz sees it differently. “This is something we really need to reframe,” she says. “The most interesting parts are for women who are over 40. We don’t see it that way, because they’re not the sexy parts. Look at the Oscar nominees in the last decade.” Diaz reels off a list that includes Meryl Streep, Helen Mirren and Dame Judi Dench. “We’re not giving those women enough credit for what they’re accomplishing, which is beautiful performances.”

I can see her point. As a beautiful, youthful actress, she is probably offered less of the challenging character work, and more of the romantic comedy, silly roles.

In this blog we have talked about the fact that even with our natural skin care line, you will still have some signs of aging and its better to embrace them than it is to face it with fear and regret.

Social Interaction-Good For Our Skin?

Comments Off on Social Interaction-Good For Our Skin?

Beautiful skin requires care, inside and out. Our Bonne Foi products will help to keep your skin soft, unlined and smooth. The chemistry behind our award winning formulas assures that, but looking good takes more than skin care. 

Good, healthy food, spending time outdoors, getting regular exercise and finding ways to eliminate stress are at least as important to good looking skin as high quality, natural skin care. 

There has been study upon study which shows that social interaction is important at every stage of our lives. Infants need it in order to thrive and grow. Youngsters need positive social interaction in order to learn and garner self esteem. During teenage years it’s critical and as young adults even more so. Spending time with friends and family makes our lives more fulfilling at every age. 

For those of us who have families, especially with women, we tend to sacrifice our social interaction with friends. We can end up feeling isolated and alone. Husbands and children do fulfill certain needs, but there is nothing that can replace our friends. Having and exercise buddy keeps us accountable for showing up at the gym. Walking in the morning with a friend not only exercises our bodies it exposes us to the Vitamin D we get from sunshine, it works our hearts and lungs, and it gives us a sounding board for our troubles. 

Please, men and women both, take a couple of hours out of your busy schedules to spend time with a friend. It will help your feel better, and when you feel better, you frown less, and smile more. When you are happier, your body releases hormones that help you live longer and keep your skin and hair looking healthier. And of course, don’t forget your sunscreen, and your Bonne Foi products!!

Comments Off on Bonne Foi Natural Skin Care

What is Bonne Foi?  Bonne Foi is your local Natural Skin care company. We are made in the USA all the way. Our natural products are formulated based upon a Nobel Prize winning formula and delivered in beautiful packaging.  

Why was the company started?   Basically, it was because our founder could not find a product on the market, expensive or not, that would make her skin look soft and firm, so she decided to make her own line of skin care products and offer them to other men and women with the same need. 

Who is Bonne Foi’s skin care products for? Bonne Foi works for all age groups and even on sensitive skin.  If you start using our natural skin care line in your twenties, keep using your sunscreen and stay hydrated, your skin will stay soft, hydrated and smooth for many years. We have testimonies from teens, from men and women in their 30’s, and men and women in their late  50’s and 60’s see the most dramatic results. If you are in your 40’s or 50’s don’t despair. Bonne Foi’s natural skin can help you, too. 

What does Bonne Foi do?  It repairs damage to sun damage by delivering moisture directly into the cells of your skin. It will fade those pesky brown age spots. 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 even use it to set and style your hair. Our natural Keratin Treatment is not the same as the ones you get done in the salon. Those contain harsh chemicals in addition to Keratin, which are used to straighten hair. Our Keratin Hair Treatment works with your natural hair to strengthen your hair, it will not make curly hair straight.   

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 or female. It is equal opportunity natural skin care product line, made right here in Surf City USA!

Bonne Foi and Dancing

Comments Off on Bonne Foi and Dancing

Want to look and feel younger? First make sure you are using our Bonne-Foi Natural Skin Care line. Next, laugh several times a day. When the news about all the bad things happening in the world start to wear you down, turn it off. Find something to think about that will make you smile and feel hopeful again. And last but not least, DANCE!!

Why Dancing? For several reasons. One, music is almost universally thought of as one of the best ways to life out spirits and soothes our souls. It can transport us back in time to events that make our hearts happy. Second, I challenge anyone to stay sad while they dance. It is virtually impossible. Last but not least, dancing is aerobic, gets your heart pumping, and for most of us, it involves at least one other person.  Dancing uses all different muscle groups, and it makes you happy. If you don’t have a partner or a friend to go out dancing with, join a line dancing class.  It will get you into a very social environment where you will not only have fun; you will probably even make some new friends.

Look at all those stars who participate in Dancing with the Stars, some of them start out heavy, awkward, and for the most part they end up thinner and in much better shape. I am not saying that will happen to you right away, but if you keep it up over time, you will begin to notice a difference in your body, and in your mind.

So the formula for staying young and vital? Eat colorful food, take long walks in the fresh air a few times a week, use Olive Oil for cooking instead of butter. Wash your face with Bonne Foi facial cleanser, and use the Keratin Hair treatment. Last of all, Dance. “ I Hope you dance, I hope you dance..”

Beautiful You, Beautiful Home

Beautiful home, Beautiful you.

Bonne Foi is a skin care line, that much you know. But we care about everything that affects how you look and feel. We blog about nutrition, fashion, makeup, and today we want to talk about your home. It is your environment, one that you come back to every day.

We sometimes take our homes for granted, let things lapse, collect clutter and with everything else going on in our  busy lives, neglect how our homes look and feel. If you aren’t happy with the way your home looks, you will feel that it reflects poorly on yourself. It’s not an active thought but more of a subconscious feeling that registers each time you enter. Today we’re going to explain exactly what can be done to provoke a sigh of relief instead of the usual dulled response when walking through the front door.

First things first, fill your house with shapes and textures that set you at ease. Even if it’s a driftwood lamp, it will be a piece of your happiness and comfort. Most people use pictures and such to relive old memories but the connections between objects and their hidden meanings can tell a stronger story than any picture.

Second, fill your home with your favorite smells and scents. Aroma therapy has been around for ages and has been proven to alleviate stress. It will also keep your home smelling fresh and inspire your family to do the same. Scented candles or oils that soothe you, vanilla, or lilacs, lavender of ocean breeze can instantly relax and soothe you after a hard day.

Third, take a little time to just look around. Appreciate what you have always liked about your home. And, maybe take a trip to TJMaxx, find some brightly colored throw pillows to replace those old ones on the couch. Or a soft throw in a pretty shade of blue.

Make your home beautiful, simple and clean, or bursting with color and fun, whatever will make your happy to be there at the end of the day!!

Bonne Foi

To Wash or Not to Wash

Comments Off on To Wash or Not to Wash

I have heard conflicting opinions, wash your hair every day, wash your hair three times per week, never wash your hair, just rinse it with apple cider vinegar, yuk..

What is a girl, or guy, to do? You want your hair to look soft, healthy and shiny. You don’t want it to look dry and frizzy, but you don’t like how your hair feels if you go more than two days without washing it. Let me offer another suggestion. Wash you hair at least every couple of days, and after each shampoo, spritz you hair with our Keratin Hair treatment. It will help restore the PH balance . of your hair and keep it soft, smooth and healthy looking.

Bonne Foi’s Product line is made with natural ingredients right here in Huntington Beach, CA, in the United States of America.  The Keratin in our natural hair care product will penetrate your hair strands and make them stronger and less likely to split or break.

When the cool winter weather dries out your skin and hair, our products can help to restore the loss moisture that mother nature takes away.

Remember, we have free shipping in the USA..

Bonne Foi
