Botanical treats for the face are one of the most ancient practices for facial skin. When teas are used as facial steams, the aromatic oils of the herbs, rich in nutrients that soothe and tone skin, are released into the heated water and absorbed by the skin.
It may surprise you, but I have never been obsessed with skin care products. My skin care regimen consisted of a shower with soap and water--and I was done! If you would have told me 10 years ago that I would soon be massaging myself with sugars, salts and pulverized beans, I would have politely disagreed. But my skin now thanks me each and every day!
Why use a natural deodorant? The simple answer--why not!
Making sense of the myriad of ingredients in skin care products is challenging and confusing. There are many ingredients that are "considered safe in the small doses used in skin care products." But when I think of the various products I use on my skin each and every day, I can’t help but wonder how much is "a safe small dose" after 65 years.
