During my December trip to Costa Rica, I visited the old town of Nicoya in the Guanacaste region.
Nicoya is one of the five “Blue Zones” in the world where people live the longest while having a great quality of life.
HEALTH AGING – 5 Places Where People Live the Longest and Healthiest Lives
By JAMIE DUCHARME February 15, 2018
According to scientists, the most likely factors for this longevity are family connections, diet, exercise, and the local environment.
Does this beach paradise hold the secret to long life?
By Robert Howell, CNN “This notion that you have to be rich to be healthy is completely wrong, and in Blue Zones we’re almost wholly seeing longevity among people who would technically be well below the U.S. poverty line,” says Buettner.
Read more and make sure to watch the video. I guarantee you will be amazed and book your next vacation (or retirement place) to Costa Rica.
So if you plan to move to beautiful Nicoya, don’t forget to pack your supply of KENZA beauty products so you can look your best in your 100s (or just order online and we will ship to your address in Nicoya).
“Being natural is incredibly empowering for women because it’s just who you are. You’re embracing all the beautiful things about you from your head to your toes. Because when you mask so much of your natural beauty, people don’t get to see that.”
The singer-songwriter and early ‘90s member of group TLC is spot on with her quote about natural beauty. And a lot of people seem to agree with her.
According to a recent report by Grand View Research, “growing demand for organic and natural hair care, skin care, and cosmetic products is expected to augment” the growth of the global organic personal care market to $25.1 billion by 2025 as demand for organic skincare, haircare, and cosmetics drives consumers to look for natural and organic labels.
Because skincare (body lotions, sunscreens, and face creams) is expected to have the largest market share, followed by haircare, natural and organic skincare is expected to be close to one-third of the total global organic beauty market.
This phenomenal growth is driven by factors such as:
– Changing consumer perception towards organic products
– Growing awareness of harmful effects associated with chemical substances
– Rising demand for chemical-free skin and hair care products
– Changing lifestyle of consumers regarding organic personal care
– The ability of natural ingredients to provide anti-oxidation properties and improve skin immunity
– E-commerce as a key source used by consumers’ access to products that are otherwise unavailable in malls and retail stores
– Stringent regulations promoting natural product use in the skincare industry
The global cosmetic market is highly competitive due to many large cosmetic brands. Market leaders are launching new products and acquiring smaller companies to grow their product line and to expand geographically. KENZA International Beauty has carved a niche in this ultra-competitive market by providing the highest quality natural beauty products to meet the increasing demand for clean label products by health conscious consumers globally.
We also supply many indie beauty brands around the world that proudly create unique cosmetics with our wholesale organic Moroccan oils Argan oil and Prickly Pear Seed Oil) and Essential oils (Lavender and Lavandin oils) sourced from Provence, France.
Our customers are now free to use less or no make-up and let their natural beauty shine!
We are surrounded by many holistic wellness optons or approaches to heal symptoms, diseases and overall well-being. It includes Naturopathy, homeopathy, massage therapy (deep tissue, Thai massage , Chi gong, Shiatsu, Ashiatsu) , meditation, aromatherapy, Ayurveda, Acupunture, Reiki, or even hypnotherapy.
I participated to this symposium without thinking that I was also a healer. After two days of listening to holistic experts talk, I understood that there are many ways to offer healing. I discovered that by offering beauty products made with natural, botanical active ingredients, I am also contributing to your well-being and therefore I am a healer.
This is the path that I want to continue exploring and by offering what nature already blesses us with, I want to be part of your well-being.
I am so grateful to all the participants for guiding my way by sharing their knowledge, passion and love of healing others.
I know for sure that many women deal with this issue and are willing to do whatever it takes to have beautiful, clear, glowing, even toned skin.
Well let me tell you that you do not have to use dangerous chemicals, expensive treatments, or heavy make up to mask the problem. You can achieve clean, beautiful, glowing skin by switching to natural, potent, botanical skincare. It may take longer to see results but once you reach it the results last.

I love my Saturdays! Taking time off should be taken without guilt.
Don’t you love the weekend when you get to relax, exercise, spend quality time with your family and friends and most importantly pamper yourself?
After a long week of work managing my business, taking care of my family and figuring out what’s for dinner, I make sure to take some time off and Saturday is my day. I am neither a mom, nor a wife, I am Khadija and I make myself a priority. It may sound selfish but I truly believe that you can always give the best of yourself when you take time to decompress, change your mind and step out of your routine.
What I love is taking fitness classes or working out on my own at Equinox Fitness Club. After working out I love to treat myself, depending on how much time I have, with either a reflexology massage a manicure & pedicure or with a Moroccan Hammam SPA (my ultimate favorite).
Of course I bring all I need: Moroccan Black Soap, kissa (exfoliating glove), a hair mask, a facial scrub (that I also use as a mask because it has rose powder, honey and Argan oil. Soon available in our e-store), and my Argan oil, Fusion oil and Eye serum. Oh, I forgot I soak my hair the night before with my Hair oil Treatment too.
I have to admit that it is nice to have a facility like Equinox where I can do all of this but you can create your own Hammam SPA at home as well. Here is how:
MOROCCAN HAMMAM SPA RITUAL
• In a Moroccan Hammam SPA or your bathroom warm up your body with a hot bath, shower or steam for 10 min to open pores.
• Apply generously (1 tablespoon) KENZA Pure Moroccan Black Soap all over your body. Let it penetrate for 5 to 10 min (it is important to stay in a warm environment). Rinse off with warm water (no soap). Video via Organic SPA Magazine
• Rinse the glove and start massaging gently skin (body only) in circular motion. After few minutes layers of dead skin and impurities will roll off the body onto the “Kissa” exfoliating glove.(Wash and dry your KENZA Hammam Glove).
