Another hot sweaty yoga class. Perhaps another day of having to quickly run straight from class to a meeting or to run errands. You know you should be taking better care of your skin, as you do your mind through your yoga practice, but are not sure quite what steps to be taking. If you don't take the proper steps you can develop acne, rashes, ingrown hairs, and more. But a few simple steps before, during and after your practice can help to keep your skin looking gorgeous and glowing!
As a yogi or yogini, you know your skin can take a hard toll especially if you are doing a lot of hot yoga and daily yoga practice. Your skin needs to be given the same amount of conscious effort as your mind, muscles and nutritional needs both pre and post yoga practice.

Face feeling tired and dull? Lacklustre? Dry? Just open your fridge and pantry to find the answers to mix up into a custom face mask to restore your glowing complexion.
Face masks are one of my favourite skin care products, especially when you want an instant glow for the holidays or special occasions. They’re easy to apply, fun to use and are great at delivering results often after one or two weekly applications. My favourite thing about applying a good face mask is the feeling of tightened and toned skin after a single use.
This is a common question that I get asked. With the uprise of facial oils in Western Society, it is a good one to ask for certain. Whether you have oily, acne prone skin or dry skin, you may also be wondering about the facial oil hype and whether or not it is the right skincare solution for you. The magical panacea you have been longing for perhaps. On the flip side, I've even had some people have a complete meltdown as an adult when oil touches their face because they still remember being covered in pimples as a teenager just for coming anywhere near oil on their sensitive, hormonal faces.
If you haven't yet introduced any facial oils into your skincare ritual, I highly recommend you overcome your fears and embrace the oil. In fact, in Eastern cultures women have been using plant based oils abundantly for thousands of years. And their gorgeous, youthful complexions certainly show it.
Back to school time is around the corner. It is a time of much anxiety and also sadness as the carefree days of summer end for thousands of school-agers and teenagers who are heading out to do their back to school shopping and facing the uncertainty of what the coming school year will bring. Help your teens feel more confident about their body odour and acne issues with natural solutions that treat these common challenges without the use of harsh chemicals.
