Do you like Piña Coladas, getting caught in the rain…?
Of course you do! We’re right there with you so we’ve come up with a recipe that’s delicious enough for your weekend celebration but packed with skin loving superfoods to give you that aloha glow! We were inspired by the fabulous ingredients in our Kalima Cleansing Powder. Each step of cleansing with Kalima is a ritual of beauty, which begins the second you pour its soft powder into your palm. Organic coconut milk, vibrant rosehips, and fresh pink guava puree are the key ingredients in today’s beauty cocktail (perfect for mermaid happy hour!). The delicate texture and exotic flavours will brighten your spirits and leave you glowing from the inside, out (just like sweet Kalima herself).
Activated with water, Kalima will metamorphose in your palm into an effervescent pink potion emanating soft vanilla and citrus notes that will gently exfoliate and thoroughly cleanse your skin, leaving your complexion soft and silken. The superfood ingredients work harmoniously together to boost collagen production and even out the skin tone. Today we’re using these yummy ingredients to recreate the traditional Pina Colada recipe into an all-natural beauty cocktail that we know you’ll love.
ORGANIC COCONUT MILK softens and moisturizes the skin and contains skin loving vitamin A and C, calcium, iron and natural proteins. The natural fatty acids in coconut milk help to clarify and tone. Adding coconut milk to your recipes is highly beneficial. It creates a wonderfully creamy (dairy-free) texture to smoothies and desserts. It also provides your body with long lasting energy, replaces electrolytes, and fights against viruses and bacteria. The benefits from coconut are truly endless.
ROSEHIP FRUIT contains vitamin C as well as 32 other vitamins and minerals. Rosehip is high in antioxidants and helps improve elasticity of the skin, it also has anti-inflammatory and astringent properties. You may have enjoyed rosehip tea before, this fruit is very beneficial to the immune system due to it’s high vitamin C content. It’s also a good source of vitamin A, calcium, and iron. Some people sip rosehip tea to help enhance a positive mood.
GUAVA is full of skin loving vitamin C and antioxidants. The natural acids in this super-fruit help to even skin tone and mildly exfoliate. Eating this fruit helps to balance several systems in the body. Guava fruit is a great source of dietary fiber and helps to regulate the absorption of sugar. It is also a source of copper which is an important part of regulating thyroid metabolism by helping to control hormone production and absorption.
Hawaiian red alaea sea salt gets its beautiful red colour from the native volcanic clay here on Kauai. This salt is highly beneficial both internally and externally. It has a rich mineral count that is easily absorbed into the skin to promote a smooth complexion. It's smooth flavour also makes it a great addition to recipes as the high mineral and electrolyte levels offer many benefits.
