Comments Off on Protect Your Skin From Signs of Aging
Wrinkles and age spots have long been assumed to be inevitable signs of growing older. Bonne Foi’s skin care proves that it’s simply not true. We now know that some of these signs of aging can be prevented simply by using sunscreen when you go outside. If you do get brown spots and wrinkles, you can reverse those simply by faithfully using our products.
At Bonne Foi, we developed our product line based on Nobel Prize-winning research which proved that the formulation in a skin care product can be effective right down at the cellular level. We have seen firsthand how after using our skin care products for less than a month, our customers have seen their brown age spots disappear completely. Our other products work together to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, and our Keratin Hair treatment has helped people with dry, brittle hair to have soft, shiny hair once again.
The Bonne Foi skin care line also helps restore that youthful glow and it plumps up your skin cells so they appear fuller and your skin looks soft, not dried out. But skin care can’t do the whole job alone. Studies show that good nutrition plays a major role in how your skin looks and how you feel. Eating these types of foods will aid in keeping your skin and mind healthy. Check out this list from WebMd:“Fish. Follow the guidelines of the American Heart Association and eat twice weekly, especially the fatty kind that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids. This is a powerful anti-inflammatory food that offers a multitude of health benefits. Fruits and vegetables are powerhouses of antioxidants. Aim for a variety of colorful produce. Enjoy at least 5 servings per day for the maximum benefits. Whole grains provide soluble fiber to help lower blood cholesterol levels, and also have phytonutrient content equal to any fruit or vegetable. Strive for at least 3 daily servings. Legumes are unsung heroes, packed with nutrients similar to fruits and vegetables and with very few calories. Add them to your diet 3 to 4 times a week. Yogurt has all the benefits of dairy foods, plus probiotics that help add healthy bacteria to the intestines. Moores recommends eating a yogurt with active cultures as one of your 3 dairy servings each day. Nuts are a great source of B vitamins that are good for your heart and your brain. The healthy fats in nuts benefit the elastin and collagen in skin, helping to maintaining skin’s structure and keep it resilient. Small portions are advised, as nuts are high in calories. Water is essential for hydration of the skin, muscles, circulation, and all organs in the body. Enjoy 3-4 glasses of pure water in addition to other liquids and watery foods.”
Bonne Foi loves helping people look and feel good. That is the whole reason we developed and brought this product line to market. If you want better looking skin, whether you are 25 or 65, go to our site: www.bonne-foi and order some today.
Anti-aging and looking younger is not just about Anti-aging skin care lines–it’s also about how you take care of yourself. We hope you take the best of care, and stay around a good long time.
Comments Off on Leopard Fashionista!
Leopard print….a dash or a smash…..from scarves to shoes to leggings and dresses to bags of every type! And, especially now, a great leopard print jacket for the cooler weather is always on trend and has been a mainstay of the fashion runways this year. Here a few tips to think about when adding a bit of leopard or “animal” print to your wardrobe. It’s a great way to capture the eye and add pizzazz to your outfit, but so important to pay attention to how it will work for you. First, remember that adding a “dash” is great with the rest of your ensemble being more neutral. Second, keep it simple. Remember that adding a scarf, bag or shoes to your outfit which has clean, simple lines works best.
Third, if an entire piece of clothing in leopard print is too bold for you, stick with the “dash”, rather than going with the smash! Fourth, be careful in your choice of fabrics when choosing an item of clothing. Go with what flatters your body and style. And, last but not least, my fifth tip….if you are going with leopard print, stay with the “traditional” colors rather than the neon version of the print. Stay with the “real” life colors and add to your wardrobe which will always be “on trend”! From hats, dresses, tops, scarves, and bags to swimsuits, there are a limitless amount of choices that will add to your wardrobe and always be a part of it! Have fun with this “year after year” trend and be fierce! http://ko-te.com/en/fashion/leopard-print-womens-clothing-trend-2013 http://www.elle.com/fashion/trend-reports/leopard-fashion-trend#slide-1
Comments Off on Fall Get Together Recipes
What to serve at your first fall get together? Well, usually the evenings are cooler in the fall so how about something warm and comforting, but not too difficult to whip up?
I found this on the Food Network: Bobby Flay cooking up some Scrumptious Looking Garlic shrimp. Whip up some great margaritas or mojitos,an nice Greek Salad with an basic Olive Oil and Vinegar dressing, sprinkle on a little fresh goat cheese, and you have a lovely autumn dinner..
Comments Off on Beautiful, Soft Hair with Bonne Foi Keratin Formula
At Bonne Foi we know the most common complaint of men and women is dry, brittle hair. As a natural skin care company, people are always asking me how to keep their hair soft and shiny. The top cause of dry, brittle hair in women is styling. We blow dry; we hot iron, use electric rollers or a curling iron on a daily basis. We bleach our hair with red tones for the winter and blonde tones for the summer.
At salons, they sell several different brands of high quality hair products. In general they use more natural ingredients, less phosphates and more ingredients that help maintain a positive PH balance, which is essential for shiny, soft hair.
Beyond that, if you wash your hair every day and style it every day using all the styling equipment we girls use, no matter what products you use, all of these things contribute to keeping our hair from looking its best. But there is something that will help not only women but men as well.
After you shower, towel dry your hair gently, and apply our Bonne Foi Keratin Hair Treatment. Keratin is a building block of hair, and our special formula will help your hair gain back its natural texture and shine. Then let your hair dry naturally, with no blow drying or styling. If you wash your hair every day, stop doing that. Skip a day. If you need to color your hair, keep the color as close to your natural shade, in fact the expert recommend you go no further than three shades away from your real hair color. It will need less processing and will dry your hair less.
And remember, no matter what length your hair, long, shoulder length or chin length, have it trimmed regularly to keep those split ends from spoiling your look!!
Comments Off on Elle and Bonne Foi Both Like Pink for Winter !
Pink is the new black!!
Every couple of years or so the fashion industry comes out with a statement like “Grey is the new black!!” I think that is a statement which only women or men who follow fashion will understand.
You see, black is a go to color for most wardrobes. Almost everything goes with black; a little black dress can be dressed up in different ways, and depending upon the style, can go from day into evening. You can’t go wrong with a few good black garments in your wardrobe. Dressy black pants, and black pencil skirt, a black suit and that infamous little black dress. Keep in mind that it’s a color that mixes well with basic or darker colors. Anything light will clash but certain lighter hues can make it pop with a serious backing.
People of all different ages use Bonne Foi natural skin care, but a good portion of our customers grew up during the late 60’s and early 70’s, where we spent more of our fashion time trying to be unique and colorful. Pink, long considered the go to color of women who supposedly were very soft and feminine, was ostracized as a color. It is the safe version of RED. Red is the color of fire and passion, defiance and strength, while pink was perceived to be docile, cute and somewhat harmless; the exact antithesis of RED. But Pink is regaining it’s power these days. My friend, who is also a Match Maker, told me there is research that shows MEN are very attracted to the color pink on women. Pink lipstick is a big attraction to most men.
Elle Magazine had an interesting take on Pink for fall:
“Pink, as you have probably noticed by now, is having a major moment this season. No, we’re not talking Barbie pink or fuchsia, but more subtle shades of the dusty rose, pastel, and cherry blossom varietals. Making it look edgy and sophisticated, however, is the key, and it’s simpler than you might think.
Take a cue from many of the street-style stars, like Vika Gazinskaya, Chelsea Leyland, and Mia Moretti, who rocked the hue during fashion month. If you are feeling bold, opt for a monochrome, all-pink look. A tailored, menswear-inspired suit, for example, would curb any overly girlish notions.”
To that end, we at Bonne Foi surmise that Pink is once again becoming a color that independent and powerful women are willing to wear. So, the next time one of your girlfriends says that pink is a soft girly color, go ahead and prove them wrong.
Comments Off on Bonne Foi for Fall
As the beauty of fall descends, cooler weather comes with it. And, with this, our skincare routine needs to be changed just as the leaves turn with the cold frosts so that we maintain our skin’s outer “beauty”.
The most important part of your regime should be to give your skin more hydration at this time of the year compared to the summer months. Bonne Foi’s moisturizer is a great thing to put on in the morning before you apply your makeup. A little hint, if you wear liquid makeup, just mix a tiny bit of it in with your makeup. It is also important is to take into consideration your location. If you live in the frigid temperatures of the northeast or any other location with snow, wind and sleet, you will definitely want to consider a moisturizer that is much more intense and has ingredients such as Vitamin E, seaweed extracts, olive oil, to ensure that your skin maintains its “health”. In addition, you need to consider your age and your skin type. They all come into play when choosing the right “formula” for you. Fortunately, Bonne Foi’s natural skin care is ph balanced and works pretty well with every skin type.
Protect your skin even more by considering whether you have an indoor heating system which can dry your skin. Humidifiers and plants can be a great solution to allowing your skin the best “ambience”! Plants need water to survive, so as you water your plants, your plants will clean the air and release some of that moisture back into your home.
Turn down the heat of your shower or bath. Hot water feels good, but it is really not good for our skin, so keep your showers short and warm instead of long and hot!! Apply lotion to your skin after you shower and before you go to bed, and be sure to wash your face before bed and apply our night time products, especially at this time of the year.
Just remember that hydration is the key to keeping your skin comfortable and healthy during the cooler months of the year. Choose a routine that works best for your specific skin type by consulting with the experts at Bonne Foi!
Comments Off on Bonne Foi- A Natural Skin Care Company
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. We have told our story about the how’s and why of Bonne Foi’s development as a company. 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.
Bonne Foi works for all age groups and even on sensitive skin. If you start 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. If you are consistent in your skin care regimen with Bonne Foi, and use your sunscreen, chances are you will not end up with wrinkles and brown age spots.
If you are in your 40’s or 50’s don’t despair. Bonne Foi’s natural skin can help you, too. 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.

Comments Off on Seaweed Salad
We all know how important it is to take care of our skin from the outside with great skin care. By now you may also know that Bonne Foi uses seaweed extracts in our skin care formulations. It has long been part of our blogging theme to post about what good things food does for us on the inside, which also reflects in our complexions. How about this: Seaweed has become a revitalizing ingredient in skin care, so why not “feed” your complexion to a great culinary treat from the inside!
Here is a salad recipe made from seaweed that will bring its rejuvenating powers to you!
Seaweed Salad¾ oz. Dried (Wakame) Seaweed (whole or cut) 3 tbsp. Rice Vinegar 3 tbsp. Light Soy Sauce 1 tbsp. Sesame Oil 1 tsp. sugar Red Pepper Flakes 1 tsp. Finely Grated Ginger ½ tsp. Fresh Minced Garlic 2 Scallions (Sliced) ¼ cup Shredded Carrots 2 tbsp. Chopped Fresh Cilantro 1 tbsp. Sesame Seeds (Toasted Lightly)
Soak the seaweed in warm water for five minutes. Drain and rinse and then squeeze out the excess water. If the seaweed is whole, cut it into 1/2 “ wide strips.
Mix together the vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, sugar, pepper flakes, ginger and garlic in a large bowl until the sugar dissolves. Add the cut seaweed, scallions, carrots and cilantro. Toss all ingredients together until combined. To finish the salad, sprinkle the toasted sesame seeds over the top and serve. Enjoy!
Comments Off on Facial Cleansers
You see the commercials on TV, beautiful women splashing clear, sparkling water on the clear, nearly perfect skin. What you don’t see is something we have posted about before, it’s the effects of the soap, or cleanser that they used on their face over time.
There is study after study that shows cleaning your face in the morning and evening can help prevent and clear up acne, and that cleaning your face with a soap or cleanser that is too harsh, or upsets the PH blanace of your skin will cause premature aging. Public Med.com states: “For many years, physicians have agreed that although cleansing is not effective on its own, effective cleansing is an important part of any acne treatment regimen. However, patients have not been satisfied with the types of cleansers available. In addition to containing dyes and perfumes that can irritate and exacerbate acne, these cleansers often are too harsh and can result in excessive drying of the skin, which leads to overcompensation by the oil glands and ultimately to more oil on the surface of the skin. ”
Our Bonne Foi facial cleanser is formulated to be strong enough to clean your face thoroughly but at the same time it is mild enough not to harm your skin. The formula we use in our entire skin care line is carefully blended to give your face and neck the clean, fresh feeling you want and still keep your skin soft and smooth. Bonne Foi’s Face Cleaning Gel is a safe, mild cleanser that contains seaweed polysaccharide, This water soluble cleaner won’t irritate your skin or leave your face dry or covered in residue. Although you won’t see much lather, one pump is all you need to get your face thoroughly clean and ready for the next step in your skin care system.
We have had several of our customers purchase Bonne Foi to help clear up acne in their son’s and daughter’s faces when nothing else worked. Try our products and see if they don’t make your skin soft, smooth and younger looking in a short period of time!!
Comments Off on Great Skin Care From Bonne Foi
When some of us were children we ran around all summer without the benefits of sun screen. There really were no lotions and potions that actually had sunscreen in them, they were more tanning lotions. Because of that we are praying the price with age spots and wrinkles. Now more than ever, it is so important to take care of our skin. It seems we all have some sort of skin damage from earlier in our lives, whether it is from being exposed to the sun without sunscreen or our lifestyle, which may have included smoking or being exposed to harsh environments.
To help erase the damage or maintain the skin we have, we need to choose the right products that fit with our skin type, as well as keep our bodies healthy. What happens on the inside shows on the outside and what we take in from the outside has skin-altering effects. Bonne Foi’s products are formulated to help remove the “past” from our skin and make it better.
