Find the Perfect Clay for Your Skin Type

DIY Acne Clearing Moisturizer

As I posted a few weeks ago, I had quite the shopping spree at Mountain Rose Herb, where I purchase about 90% of all my skin care ingredients.  I blindly chose a few oils that were affordable not really knowing what they were good for.  Turns out,  several of them are perfect for oilier skin types and known to not clog pores.  So, I formulated a super simple facial oil that is non-comedogenic, will help fade acne scaring and has been proven to reduce inflammation while killing bacteria.  While … [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!

DIY Clay & Tamanu Oil Cleanser…

I realize I tend to focus many of my DIYs around anti aging solutions.  It's been many years since I've dealt with acne prone skin.  It's also been years since I've dealt with oily skin.  I usually base my DIYs on how the product works for me so I don't feel very qualified to share recipes that I "think" will work for oilier and problematic skin types.  But-I've had some extra clogging lately and had an idea.  Since I swear by The Oil Cleansing Method, and a lot of you are very apprehensive to … [Read more...]

Tamanu Oil

Tamanu oil is an oil we should talk about.  It's a lesser known oil then coconut oil or rosehip oil but it is said that tamanu oil has qualities that allow it to be very effective for healing damaged skin.  Many people suffering from acne have found great relief and clearing when using tamanu oil! Tamanu oil is an amazing tool when it comes to healing and regenerating the skin!   It is  antineuralgic, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antibiotic, and antioxidant.   There is much emphasis on … [Read more...]
