Bathroom Beauty

Every holiday season I struggle. I struggle with gift giving. Do I simply make a large donation to a worthy cause in all my loved ones’ names? Do I make gifts, like jams, breads, cookies or pickles? Do I make watercolor paintings or drawings?

 

Love the Skin You're In, Baby!

Women spend a staggering $426 billion on beauty products each year:  shampoo, conditioner, body wash, dry shampoo, face wash, facial scrubs, tea tree oil, shaving cream, razors, toothbrushes, whitening toothpastes, serums, body lotion, face lotion, primers and toners.

 

When it comes to beauty and appearance maintenance, it can feel like there’s no limit to how much we will spend. There’s always a new miracle product that promises us clear skin and eternal youth.

 

Your Precious Skin

I love The Environmental Working Group. I have found that their research is impeccable and they do not resort to simple scare tactics. But they also don’t shy away from the truth. I turn to them for a lot of information.

This month, as spring springs, we think skin. We want to reveal a dewy lush complexion as we face sunny days and fewer clothes, but it’s important to take care of our largest breathing organ and to know what is in the product we are slathering all over our precious skin.

Natural Radiant Beauty

Radiance, beauty…that elusive glow that we all seek to achieve.  I would venture to say that we would rather look good than feel good.  Unfortunately, you can’t have one without the other.  Like love and marriage, looking great is usually the result of feeling great...and conversely, if you don’t feel well, it’s hard to put your best face forward.
