Tips and tricks for natural body care
It’s November: Dark and cold, the leaves are falling, fireplaces are burning logs of light and warmth, soup is on in the kitchen, and holiday gatherings are like waves rolling in. I’ve selected three of my favorite go-to products that will help you enjoy the holidays more, while maintaining your glow!
Aroma is a healthy way for people of all ages to regulate mood. I love ADORAtherapy Chakra Boost roll-ons because their blends are fresh, tried-and-true and yummy. Place them in the dining room or bathroom so guests and visitors can use as needed. Use Vitality for strength and grounding, Creativity for creating cards and homemade gifts, Joy to feel “it” even when your mother-in-law chastises you for your outfit and your kids are fighting! Buy the whole set ($112 for a set of 7) and have them ready for your or give them as a great gift.
ilike Rose Hip Exfoliator Mask ($48)is a winter miracle for dry, dull skin. It’s full of vitamins and trace elements that gently remove impurities while soothing skin and lending a super-fresh rosy glow. Lactic acid loosens dead cells and encourages new cell growth while rosehip revitalizes, balances and protects, while light herbal oils nourish the skin. This mask is so refreshing it’s like a mini vacation. I use it twice a week on my face and décolleté. A must try for out of this world results!
Last but not least, I’ll tell you my secret for pure sun-kissed color even in winter…SHHHH!!! Dr. Hauschka Translucent Bronzing Tint ($45) has been in my bag for over a decade and is one of my all-time favorite products. It contains only the purest ingredients, such as olive oil, beeswax, witch hazel and copper. This bronzing tint offers super-light, gorgeous blendable color that brilliantly matches your skin tone, whatever it is. I mix it with a moisturizer and apply in morning. It smells and feels great on the skin, plus it lasts forever!
