Reduce the Premature Signs of Age


Aging is inevitable. The goal should be to look and feel as good as possible regardless of what birthday you’ll celebrate next. I’ve always looked forward to getting older (and wiser hopefully) but I don’t necessarily welcome the extra aches and pains or the “smile” lines I’m noticing around my eyes and mouth. So what can we do to minimize the signs of age that we see in the mirror or feel every morning when we get out of bed? Many of us will sit back and just let it happen. Others will take action!

The visible signs of age show up mainly on our skin. Our skin is the largest organ in our body and we do in fact take it for granted much of the time. The damage that we do physically to our skin can cause it to age prematurely. This type of aging due to external forces is called extrinsic aging. This includes, but is not limited to, good ole Mr. Sunshine and all those years we spent basking in its rays as teenagers. Take a look at this great article from the American Academy of Dermatology. It recognizes right off the bat that a large part of HOW & WHY our skin ages is genetic. They call this type of aging intrinsic aging. The article lists 11 ways you can REDUCE premature skin aging. Be sure to note that a few of the items on the list will ALSO help with those morning aches and pains.  Treat your skin like the rock star it is.  Protect it!  Pamper it!  Give it the love you deserve!

Don’t take this whole aging thing lying down.  Break out the sunscreen, commit to eating healthier and take the stairs more often.  We are all going to age. Let’s just do everything we can to look and feel our best while we do it!  Until next time, stay beautiful!

Beauty IS More Than Skin Deep


Here at SIBU, we constantly tout the benefits of taking care of your skin from the inside and the outside. We live and breathe sea berry and the amazing benefits of Omega-7 for WHOLE BODY HEALTH and beauty.

Beauty is defined as the quality present in a thing or person that gives intense pleasure or deep satisfaction to the mind, whether arising from sensory manifestations (as shape, color, sound, etc.), a meaningful design or pattern, or something else (as a personality in which high spiritual qualities are manifest).

It’s true that society today places a huge emphasis on external beauty. However, the determination as to what is beautiful is completely subjective and is “in the eye of the beholder”.   Inner beauty that starts with a kind heart and a life filled with gratitude can and will shine through in any crowd.  We are each entitled to define beauty for ourselves and we owe it to ourselves to do the good things for our minds and bodies that will allow us to look AND FEEL our best.

The things we put in and on our bodies make a difference and thankfully there is a lot more attention paid to these things today.  Natural and organic foods and personal care products, vitamins and supplements and getting out and being active can all play a part in how “beautiful” we look and feel.  We love this post by Carlen Altman via freepeople.com. It says so much about the way we should think about beauty. Check out this link and accept Altman’s challenge at the end. We believe that YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!

Sea Buckthorn for Clear, Calm, Beautiful Skin

Problematic, acne prone, sensitive, or irritable skin?… SIBU was made for you!

But first, what do SIBU customers have to say?

  • “I’ve come down with acne in my later years and the prescription medication that my Dermatologist prescribed was so drying that I started developing more age line (which I didn’t have before.) I read about this Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil in one of Dr. Gott’s newspaper column and thought I would give it a try. The very first day my pimples started clearing up and by the 5th day it was all gone and my skin looks better than it has in years. Just one drop on each side of my face and a dab on my nose and chin at night after washing my face is all it takes. I just splash tepid water on my face in the morning and that’s all I do. I would recommend this product to anyone having a problem with acne.” – Scott L.
  • “This oil is AMAZING. Seriously, it’s amazing. If you have any red, rough, scaly, dry, peeling, etc patches on your skin, this stuff will do wonders….My dad has chronically red, flaky patches around the eyebrows and this stuff literally soothed them and made them go away over night.” J.J.
  • I am post menopausal and have been plagued with acne breakouts and large pores my whole life. So, believe me when I tell you I would never put oil on my face. I read about Sea Buckthorn oil I decided to give it a try. I am amazed!! I have only used it for about 4 days but already my skin looks good enough to go out without makeup – something I never usually do. My skin looks and feels smoother, my pores are smaller and any pimples I had healed and disappeared.  I would definitely recommend this product (and already have.)”

If you’ve ever said, “I can’t use anything on my skin because its so sensitive” or “Everything I do seems to make my skin worse” or “nothing works on my skin!”

…SIBU was made for YOU

  • Calms and soothes irritated, sensitive skin (often after one day’s use) so your skin is calm & clear.
  • Helps repair blemished and damaged skin so your complexion is smooth and radiant
  • Natural anti-bacterial and anti-microbial sea buckthorn properties help stop breakouts & diminish acne problem
  • Helps accelerate tissue healing so your skin can quickly recover from breakouts for that night out on the town.
  • Nourishes your skin from the inside out for the critical Omega 7 internal nutritional support. It’s food for your skin.
  • The biggest benefit? Feel good in your own skin again!

Problematic, sensitive skin is all too common, with far too few solutions. I take that back, problem skin is all too common with, far too few solutions that work.

We’ve all been there. We hear about the newest cream, cleanser, or serum, that will finally improve our skin, so we go out and buy this new miracle product with our hopes high, only to repeat the viciously endless cycle.

Buy. Try. Repeat. Buy. Try. Repeat.…… Sound familiar?

You start to wonder, will anything ever help my skin?

You’re not alone. Skin care sales are expected to rise to $121 billion by the year 2016 according to Statista.com. Let that sink in a bit, $121 billion!
Yet, a study commissioned by Dove reported that over 90% of women are unhappy with their appearance.

Do you see anything wrong with this picture?

It’s not a shortage of selection, that’s for sure. Just take a stroll into any store with a decent skin care section.

With so many choices, you’ll be forever lost in trial and error trying to find the right product for your skin. Back to that old rut again……. Buy. Try. Repeat. Buy. Try. Repeat.

Wouldn’t it be great to find a product you can count on?

Why not go for something with a proven track record? More than just a typical testimonial that says, “it’s a great product”.

I’m talking time tested solutions. Solutions that have been used as far back as 1,300 years! Think about it, anything that stands the test of time will all have one thing in common. It works!

Why else would it be passed down generation after generation?

The elusive Sea Berry (sea buckthorn) is one of those few that have passed the test.

Referenced in various ancient medical texts, the most well-known, the Sibu Yidian dedicates an entire 13 chapters to this little berry and all its health & beauty benefits. (It’s how SIBU’s name came to be!)

There are various types, but only one measures with the highest overall nutritional values. It’s called Turkestanica. So in a world full of products that are all hype and no results, what are we to do? Simple, look for skin care with a proven track record.
