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...]

DIY Hyaluronic Acid Serum

I think everyone has probably heard of hyaluronic acid.  Whether you take it for your joints or you apply it topically for anti aging purposes, it's a pretty well known substance.  I mean, you can go to Walmart  and find loads of skin care products that contain hyaluronic acid.  I always noticed it in skin care but I never really knew what it was.  I just assumed it was a lab-created ingredient that was probably unsafe.  When I read THIS book I realized hyaluronic acid is actually a natural … [Read more...]

Recover from Summer with 1 Ingredient…

So summer is winding down-school is about to start and I'm starting to get goosies (i'm using that word too, J.Lo) just thinking about fall!!!!  That being said, despite cooler weather on it's way, my hair and skin are leaving a lot to be desired.  I'm sure I'm not the only one in need of some major moisture and healing??!!  If you are looking for a 1 ingredient solution to stressed out skin and dry, stringy hair, open your cupboard-SURPRISE, it's coconut oil!! I think I mentioned this a few … [Read more...]

Homemade After Sun Relief Lotion

Lately I have been a lotion makin' fool!  If you haven't caught the bug already, once you get the hang of it, you will probably be one too!  It's just so rewarding to create a rich, creamy moisturizer that your skin literally drinks up!  Being aware of each and every ingredient is a rare thing in the skin care world.  Did you know that the skin care industry isn't regulated like the food industry?  There is no guarantee that what is printed on the ingredient list is actually every ingredient … [Read more...]

My Winter Skin Care Routine…

As we age, keeping skin balanced and happy can be quite a tricky endeavor.  Typically, the older we get, the drier we get.  That is certainly true in my case but like a lot of you, I still experience blackheads and blemishes.  For the most part, treating dry skin is exactly opposite of treating acneic skin.  So what's a girl to do? I am super nervous about letting my skin get dry.  That tight, scaly feeling that comes with dry skin really freaks me out.  Why?  Because tight, dry skin ages … [Read more...]

Make Up Primer & Finishing Spray

I have to say, I love this DIY.  Earlier in the week, I posted a recipe for mineral make up.  I have used mineral make up for many years now and loved it.  This year my skin has taken a huge turn.  I have always had slightly oily skin but this winter I have become crazy dry.  Like peeling skin, rough dry patches and make up looking pasty and uneven.  In a nut shell, my skin looks really parched.   Honestly, I have no clue what's going on-hormones are my guess but none the less, it's no good.  I … [Read more...]
