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...]

Allergy Season Must-Haves

It's that time of the year again... ALLERGY SEASON.  This year my allergies have hit me like a ton of bricks.  We've had a very random winter with very cold days mixed with record breaking highs and so the trees are budding earlier then usual which according to the weather man means allergy season is prolonged this spring.  Great.  In the past I've blogged about essential oils and allergy relief but for me personally, essential oils weren't enough.  I refuse to take allergy medicine despite … [Read more...]

What I Learned From My 3-day Cleanse…

Last week I did a 3-day cleanse.  It was the first "cleanse" I have ever done.  Honestly, I've just not felt like I could do it and I didn't see the benefits out weighing the sacrifice.  However, something in me felt it was time and a necessary step in achieving optimal health.  During the 3 days I had some very unexpected revelations and was able to break a few strongholds that were keeping me from nurturing my body and healing my gut.  I wasn't planning on sharing my experience with you … [Read more...]

Peace Out, Puffy Eyes!

Lately I have been a big, puffy mess.  My spring allergies came early this year and my head feels like a balloon.  The nose running and sneezing isn't helping either.  Unfortunately my schedule has not allowed me to hide (lol) so I've had to act fast and figure out what to do about my massive under eye bags. Many of us suffer with under eye bags at one time or another.  Some causes of under eye bags are allergies, bad food choices, not drinking enough water and not getting enough sleep. … [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...]

These 5 Things-Valentine’s Edition…

I used to do a series called "These 5 Things". It was one of my favorite posts to do because it was light, personal and fun! These 5 things are 5 things that make me happy. Something popped in my head the other day that I had several really cool things I wanted to share and since it's Valentine's weekend, it just felt like the perfect time to revisit this series! This DIY manicure could not be easier but is so cute and perfect for V-day! I found these stickers at Target but you can find … [Read more...]
