It’s that time of year! Protect your skin while you celebrate!

We need extra protection for our skin when we travel. Our skin is a defense from germs, viruses, and free-radicals. Keeping our skin in top condition is a smart health practice.  Keep a small mister in your purse, especially on airplanes to keep your pores hydrated and nourished. This is often overlooked, but it’s extremely helpful!


Protect your lips for extra kisses

BREAKING NEWS: Eye creams are not designed and formulated for our lip areas

However, our lips, just like our eyes, require special care

Start exfoliating and moisturizing now with specialized formulas to prevent dry, cracked lips this winter. Always use non-petroleum based lip balms. Aloe-based lip scrub and balm are most effective; you want very fine and gentle ingredients with natural scrubs that are earth-friendly. 

Did you know aloe vera possesses anti-bacterial qualities?! That’s one of the many reasons it’s perfect for lip care!


Ditch the soap

Fragrant soapy scrubs might feel (and smell) wonderful after a day at the beach or a long day of traveling, but they leave your skin dry

When Fall arrives, switch to a soap-free hydrating cleanser. It’s time to put away the gels and bring out the creamy aloe-based body wash that is infused with nourishing botanicals.


Be gentle and resist the urge to “over” exfoliate

The summer sun and chlorine may have left your skin feeling dry and flaky

Start the new season off with a full-body exfoliation session! Oil-based scrubs are wonderful because they exfoliate and hydrate. Exfoliate with a scrub rich in essential oils and natural ingredients to restore and protect.


Touchable, soft, beautiful skin

Invest in aloe-based body lotions, creams, and butters. Hands and feet often become dry and cracked during Fall and Winter. A single ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

Start moisturizing your hands now to ensure soft, supple hands all Winter long

 Although it may not be super sexy, treating our feet to body butter before bed and slipping into aloe-infused buttery soft socks will ensure we wake up with soft, healthy tootsies! Most of our cellular regeneration happens as we sleep, so this helps us, help our bodies heal.



Hair products end up on our skin during each shower we take, so it is very important that our body and hair products harmonize with our facial products! Even when we have dry skin, we can get break outs – in fact, that is one of the biggest challenges we face during the Fall and Winter seasons!
