We’ve been told forever the importance of eating fruits and veggies everyday. And according to the new body care line from Yes to Carrots, we should also be applying them to our skin. The line which is brand new to Canada, consisting of everything from face moisturizers to body lotions to shampoo, follows the mantra “healthy eating for your skin”.
Reaping the benefits of organics fruits and vegetables that are bright orange (think: carrots, pumpkin, melons, and oranges), this formula is a vitamin-enriched treat for your skin. Its paraben free formula combines precious Dead Sea mud, 26 minerals and the juices of fruits and vegetables all working together to detoxify and protect the body’s largest organ.
The key to this orange inspired masterpiece is that these fruits and veggies are known for the ingredient Beta-Carotene. This magical ingredient, known for its anti-oxidant and anti-aging qualities, is great for summer because it will also help reduce UV damage to the skin and hair by aiding in the recovery process.
So practice healthy eating for your skin; you may be surprised to see the wonders these veggies will do to the outside of your body.

Developed by Lisa, an avid traveler, these mini packets contain all the products you need for a complete facial at home or on vacation. Lisa had the common problem of having to pack and unpack all of her favourite beauty products while traveling which can be quite a pain. She also had to decide which products to take and what she could survive without for a few days. With these portable packets you don’t need to leave anything behind and they take up practically no room in our ever-shrinking luggage.
Ten easy steps (each one numbered for newbies) take you from ho-hum to purified and polished. Each perfectly portioned tube is airtight to keep the products fresh and maintain their effectiveness.
Products include: Purifying Cleanser, Toning Lotion, Clay Mask, Treatment Serum, Hydrating Mask, Hydration Booster, Lip Exfoliator, Lip Moisturizer, Eye Treatment and Moisture Seal Cream.
The best part are steps seven and eight – Lip Exfoliator and Lip Moisturizer. They leave lips soft, conditioned and ready for your favourite gloss.

Over the past two weeks I have been using a new moisturizer, eye cream and exfoliant, and I am in LOVE. What am I using? Biotherm’s Ride Repair products.
I had run out of my usual face cream and thought I’d like to try something new. My skin had been looking so dull, and I was noticing that my fine lines were not looking so fine anymore…and I am only 36! I had also been having a terrible time with breakouts on my jawline. These products stated that they rejuvenate the skin and work on those perky wrinkles – I thought why not give them a go.
I honestly cannot believe that my skin is looking and feeling so much better, in such a short time. I guess the moisturizer I was using was not making my skin happy at all. My skin now is noticeably brighter and feels so soft. Even those nasty crinkles under my eyes are softening. No I cannot claim that they have gone, but softening is good to me.
Both the Rides Repair Yeux and Rides Repair Jour smooth into the skin almost immediately and do not leave a shiny film. They smell clean and fresh and not overly perfumed. The same can be said for the Instant Polisher. Also my skin is healing nicely where my blemishes are and I don’t seem to be breaking out as much.
The ingredients that really should be credited for their hard work are:
- Two forms of silicium – one that has an instant smoothing effect on wrinkles and is a mineral derived ingredient, and a fundamental element found in the earth’s crust.
- The other with its intense regenerating power is an essential component of the dermal matrix. These two complementary forms reveal outstanding anti-wrinkle power.
- and Thermal Plankton (PETP) that works to keep skin looking young.

Here’s to looking younger!
