Top Acne Prevention & Healing Tips for Every Age from a Skin Health Coach

I am a Skin Health Coach and a Natural Skincare product formulator. I have studied extensively how to get healthy glowing skin using natural, plant-based ingredients such as what is used in natural skincare products that are tailored for acne-prone skin, as well as the role that nutrition and stress plays when it comes to the skin. 

In other words, I take a holistic view of the skin and look at both what you put ON the skin as well as what goes IN the body. 

I am an expert in Natural Skin Health and love all things to do with the skin, our largest organ. That is why I became a natural skincare product formulator and started my own indie skincare brand (indie means independently owned). I am also a Certified Nutritional Aesthetics Practitioner (CNAP) because I care passionately about how to help women to get healthier skin at all ages, but especially in (peri)menopause.

Is self care the new mandatory must-have of basic personal care?

Is self care the new mandatory must-have of basic personal care?

The concept of self-care has been around since the days of Socrates in 5th Century BC but it seems to me that everywhere I look nowadays in 2022, kind of "post-pandemic-ish", there are messages of self-care popping up. Is it overused? Misunderstood? Or the necessary messaging that we all need nowadays? 

While I couldn't agree more that if ever there was a time for self-care: IT IS NOW. The pandemic taught us that our time on earth is fragile, misused and misunderstood. Our entire world and being was turned on its side and we had to learn to question everything. 

But, what really is Self-Care anyway? 

"First off, the Greek word for "care" would have been understood to include meditation, regular fasting, prayer, education, music, exercise -- anything that can be said to feed the soul.

Summertime is upon us finally! And while we want to spend as much time outdoors as we can in our short summer season (in Canada at least!), we need to take some steps to keep our family and our own skin healthy in the summer sun.
Firstly, remember that your body is not just your skin on your hands and face but a whole ecosystem - you have to balance what's on the outside with what's on the inside. And, you have to know what is good and not so great to put on and in your body. And know that NOT all natural products are friendly in the sun.

How to Prevent Thigh Chafing with Natural and Home Remedies

How to Prevent Thigh Chafing with Natural and Home Remedies

Thigh chafing is a real struggle that almost all women face, no matter what size body you have or how large or small your thighs are. #chafinghappens

I was recently on a beach vacation in sunny Punta Cana, Dominican Republic and walked 2kms on the beach in my bikini to visit some friends at a neighbouring resort. By the time I arrived, my thighs were on fire with the worst thigh chafing I have had in a long time. Lucky for me, my friend uses my favourite natural cream deodorant and was able to help me out and calm my rash very quickly! 

Yes, I used natural deodorant to make it all better and to prevent further chafing for the walk back along the beach which I was dreading badly from pain.

Yoga Therapy for Your Body, Mind and Skin: A Pro-Aging Solution for Women

Yoga Therapy for Your Body, Mind and Skin: A Pro-Aging Solution for Women

I escaped my computer today, at noon on a Monday, in order to visit my yoga studio for a hot vinyasa yoga class. Of all the things I have been missing during the pandemic, my in-person hot yoga practice at my studio has been top of the list. I didn't realize how much I even missed it until I had the chance to return to it these past couple days.

This may not seem like a big deal to you but it's a big deal to me. Monday's are usually the worst day of the week for me. The most stressful with the longest "to do" list ever, my most anxiety-filled day that I just power through with all my masculine energy to tackle all the "stuff" on my list. In fact, I almost cancelled my yoga class booking but felt bad to do that to my friend who owns the studio knowing they have been closed for months. 

As I lay there on my mat, I felt calm and peaceful.

I felt at one with the other humans in the room who were also there sweating their butts off from the minute of entry into the hot studio. If you have never experienced this, you must. And you may hate it. But that's part of what I am writing about here today. 

To me the part of being in the hot studio is that it is uncomfortably hot. That's the point. Doing yoga in this hot studio, like actually moving your body and getting into challenging poses, is also uncomfortable...and furthermore part of the point.

3 Spring Natural Beauty Rituals that You Need Now for Aging Skin

3 Spring Natural Beauty Rituals that You Need Now for Aging Skin

When it comes to aging skin, we always like to think and speak of Healthy Pro-Aging, not anti-aging. We just don't believe in using the term anti-aging because it has become a systemic issue of negativity associated with aging in our society. We like to say "Age Gracefully", with style, confidence and great health!

This is what it means to live a Pro-Aging life!

Especially as women, it can be very hard to reject the negativity around aging and the stigmas that are associated with it. Sadly, many skincare and wellness brands, along with health professionals (aka "weight loss" and fitness trainers) use negative tones that make us feel bad about our body, our skin, and about aging, when trying to sell their products and services. 

Just because I am over the age of 35, doesn't mean I need to anti-age. Since when did aging become a bad thing?
