DIY facial

     This week I wanted to share easy to make DIY cleanser, face mask and toner that will work wonders on your skin.  These are slightly modified from a book calledNatural Beauty by Aldo Facetti.

     Let’s start with the cleanser. My mother is 69 years old and has amazing skin. One of the things she has always done was to use egg whites on her skin. This really grossed me out when I was younger, but now that I am an esthetician I know why this old time remedy works!

Winter skin tips

     Winter skin in Idaho often means dry, itchy, and irritated. Here are a few ways to take care of that!
 The first way to help combat dry skin is to stay hydrated. Drink plenty of quality water every day, get a humidifier to help keep some moisture in the air, and take natural oils. Hemp seed oil, chia seeds, flax seeds or fish oils all help to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out.
      Other factors to consider are what you are using on your skin.

Gluten Free Treats

        Fall is here and sugary treats are everywhere. If you have food allergies this can sometimes be difficult.  I have discovered some great Gluten free treat recipes that I wanted to share, and some are even dairy free, gluten free, and vegan treats!  These are really tasty recipes that my family has tried and approved before posting here.
     The first two recipes come from a book called The Gluten Free Bible from Publications International, Ltd.

Mind, Body, Spirit : How to Integrate them into your Daily Practice


      In order for a theory or practice to work for me it has to combine mind, body, and spirit. What that means for me is scientific explanations of how the mind interacts with the body, how the body interacts with the mind, and how the spirit interacts and connects it all. I am a seeker. Anyone who knows me well knows that I am constantly seeking knowledge into the field of mind, body, and spirit and how that works in everyday life.
     With this being my focus I am always looking for practical ways to integrate this into daily practice that can improve life.
