Ingredient Spotlight: Pumpkin Seed Oil + DIY SERUM

Here we go again-another post about pumpkins.  With fall well underway, you are inundated with recipes and recommendations all centered around pumpkins, am I right?!  In fact, even I-who has sworn off high acid coffee, found myself in line at Starbucks last week ordering a pumpkin spice latte!  Insert 12 eye roll emojis.  Tis the season.  Anyway, if you haven't had enough pumpkin talk go HERE for my pumpkin recipe round up and read on to learn more about how pumpkin seed oil can greatly enhance … [Read more...]

PLANTAE-Taking the Guess Work out of Choosing Natural.

Since you're here, I'm assuming you are very aware that there are so many beauty products that are full of scary ingredients.  As I've said before, I so want to help make your decision to find safe, clean beauty products as simple as possible.  It's a travesty that we have so many options that MUST be weeded through.  There are so many super careless skin care companies doing whatever they can to pad their pockets with no concern to your health.  What's even crazier is that there are so many … [Read more...]

Cucumber Ice Facial

Last week I did a lot of research on the benefits of "ice facials" and posted THIS post all about how to do it and what it will do for your skin.  Today I'm taking ice on your skin to the next level and incorporating ingredients besides ice to boost it's effectiveness!  Plus, if you haven't tried icing your face, you're missing out.  It is weirdly relaxing and your skin glows afterwards!

Benefits of Ice Therapy for the Skin

I'm always watching out for new (or at least new to me) beauty treatments that are natural, affordable and effective.  I'm probably not ever going to tell you to run to your local spa and get a $200 sperm facial.  I truly am a minimalist and this helps when you're trying to stay natural and go easy on the wallet.  I had heard of the benefits of ice on the skin for quite sometime but it wasn't until my face swelled up like a balloon thanks to pollen literally taking over the outdoors, that I … [Read more...]

The Benefits of Toner and Are They Really Necessary??

Toners are one of those skin care products that a lot of people question whether they actually do anything.  In fact, I myself have questioned their importance so that's why I decided to do some digging and finally find out if they are more then just refreshing spritzers that smell good. Originally, toners were absolutely necessary due to cleansers having a very high pH.  In order to restore the skin's pH after harsh cleansers, a product was needed that had a neutral pH.  Most skin care … [Read more...]

Ingredients Spotlight: Squalane

Squalane is an up and coming beauty product that has numerous benefits and when sourced properly, is organic, vegan and great for all skin types! Squalane belongs to the oil family.  It is found naturally in our skin and helps with cell function, elasticity and hydration.  By around the age of 25, the amount of squalane in our skin begins to rapidly decline.  By age 50, we have only 5% left.  Just like it's cousins, collagen, coQ10 and hyaluronic acid-they don't stick around indefinitely and … [Read more...]
