face wash. I do too. I have been using Good Science Beauty’s 002-Re: Skin Renewing Polishing Powder. The powder turns to a cream when you add water. This powder is made of Bentonite and Good Silicon clay-based powder to deeply cleanse and gently remove dead surface cells, while delivering antioxidants and skin conditioners. It uses Vitamin ETurmeric and Sandalwood to help calm and regenerate your skin. Good Science Beauty has created something they call “good silicone”.   Good Silicon+ is the unique technology powering the entire Good Science Beauty product line, and the foundation of the company, not to be confused with silicone. It is a patented technology that carries ingredients to where they need to be and release them over time. This face wash will give you a gentle, deep clean. So get clean before you get dirty…

clear and calm skin. It’s easy thanks to Flora + Bast. They are “founded on the belief that skincare and beauty is a lifestyle decision, and that natural products designed, preserved and delivered properly outperform any synthetic product.” Why all the hype about cannabis? Cannabinoids balance over and under production of oil. Cannabinoids regulate apoptosis (programmed cell death) to ensure that skin cells die if and when they are not functioning optimally, allowing new cells to take their place. At night I’ve been using their Age Adapting Facial Serum and Age Adapting Sleep Tincture. The serum balances your endocannabinoid system. So your skin can repair itself naturally. It is rich in phytocannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and fatty acids. The formula is free of water, preservatives, and fillers. The Sleep Tincture works by regulating sleep-wake cycles.  When taken before bed, you should fall asleep faster with greater ease, stay asleep longer, and wake up more refreshed. I have noticed these benefits myself. You know you already love Cannabis, now let it into your skincare routine…

ingredients and the science to back it up. There is a moisturizer out there for especially extra dry, damaged, hurting skin,  It is Adamia Skincare’s Therapeutic Repair Lotion. It uses Macadamia Oil and Promega 7. “Since macadamia oil is among the closest of all botanical oils to human skin oil, it restores to skin the omega-7 that is lost with aging. It quickly penetrates the outer layer of skin, absorbing to help calm and soothe irritated skin.” So take care of your skin with Adamia, and let it go deep….

restfulsleep
well I’m not, but Restful Sleep from Healthy Directions will. It is an all natural supplement to calm your mind, promote a full nights rest, nourish chi to bring harmony to the body, and wake up refreshed. The creator of this supplement is Dr Yan Ping Xu, a certified practitioner of Oriental medicine and board certified herbalist. He believes the spleen is the key to a healthy sleep. “in traditional Chinese Medicine, it’s believed that when you’re having trouble sleeping, it’s your spleen’s chi that is off balance. The ancient herbal blend that the Chinese have been relying on for thousands of years to remedy sleep problems by rebalancing chi is called Yi-Fang. Restful Sleep’s formula uses the same exact Chinese herbs in Yi-Fang that have been used for over 2,000 years! And to make sure the herbs are pure and top quality, Dr. Xu personally selects each herb on her yearly trips to China, then makes sure each herb is processed, purified, and sterilized to remove any toxins—all done right here in the U.S.A.” She’s also included ancient herbs to rebalance your spleen chi, and modern-day nutrients to help prepare your body to accept the herbs. This includes calcium, magnesium, and potassium. My readers get 20% off with code SAVEREST (exp12/31/15). So try Restful Sleep, and have sweet dreams….

peppermint_clarifying_hydrogel_120ml_288
There’s a new way to tone your skin. Astringents and Toners can dry out your skin, and leave sensitive skin red. If you’re looking for something different from the norm, try Heaven skincare’s self-healing hydrogels. They consist of a cross link network of organic polymer-style molecules that calm, soothe, and firm skin tissue. They deliver vital skin nutrients and hydration, making them more than just an ordinary toner. My favorite is the Peppermint Clarifying Hydrogel. It cools distressed skin and refines pores. Peppermint and spearmint essential oils calm, while the antiseptic and anti-microbial properties of lavender soothe and coconut moisturizes.
