Face Mask Friday: Greek Yogurt Clay Mask

TGIF beauties! This week I'm here with another clay mask recipe using a pretty basic kitchen ingredient. And the recipe is simple enough you'll want to whip it up tonight for a moisturizing exfoliation treatment.  Exfoliating once or twice a week is an essential part of a balanced skincare practice. Regular exfoliation increases circulation in the skin giving your complexion a healthy, brighter appearance. It also promotes the shedding of dead skin cells, giving our skin that glow and aids in the absorption of our skincare products.

Facial Friday: At Home Facial 101

TGIF Beauties! And you know what that means. It means time for a bit of self-care this weekend and maybe, if we're lucky, time to take our weekend skincare to the next level. So this week, I'm walking you through an at-home facial that covers all the basics. When we want to improve the look and feel of our skin, we address daily skincare practices first.

Unfortunately, by eliminating fats altogether from your diet, you skipped out on the good fats, too, with side effects like making you feel colder, hungrier, more cloudy-headed, and may even mess with your monthly moon cycle.  Fats provide critical elements in a natural...

The Skin Diet Connection: What's the best diet for good skin?

     So, what's the best diet for good skin? The health of our skin is a direct reflection of what's going on inside our bodies. I've been working with women for over a decade to help them look and feel their best, and it's hard to deny that what we eat and how our body digests foods are two significant factors in getting that healthy glow.
