Cream Of The Crop

Cream Of The Crop

If you require a heartier skin routine as the seasons change, trade in your foaming cleanser for a creamy formulation. The KORA Organics Cream Cleanser gently cleanses away impurities, make up and congestion without leaving a filmy residue.

Fat For Your Skin

Fat For Your Skin

Dr. Ian Mussman gives us the skinny on Good Fats Vs. Bad Fats

All fats are not created equal.

I recommend that everyone educate themselves so that they include the good fats in their diet and avoid the bad ones.

In my experience, most people don’t get enough good fats in their diet. This can lead to a variety of issues, some of them serious.

For instance, fi you are deficient in good fats, your skin, connective tissues, and joints dry up. Importantly, your brain and nervous system also require a lot of good fats to function optimally.

The Care and Feeding of Your Beautiful Skin

The Care and Feeding of Your Beautiful Skin

Did you know that you should feed your skin the way you feed your body?

Something I learned from KORA Organics: if you are going to give your skin real, certified organic “food,” then you should probably feed your skin more than once a day.

Three times a day would be better.

Why? Because certified organic skin care such as KORA, which is primarily composed of plant-derived certified organic ingredients, is healthy for your skin because its organic makeup allows it to be taken in by the skin cells, circulated, and excreted… just the way our body cells do with food.

One of My Inspirations: Susan Boyle, Part 3

One of My Inspirations: Susan Boyle, Part 3

Susan Boyle, in that first audition, is one of my greatest heroines. She sings the truth through the light of her open heart, and it blesses all who hear it. Even now, when it’s racked up over 50,000,000 views on YouTube (there are several clips posted, that’s the collective total as of this writing), it continues to bless those who see and hear it.

What if I could be like Susan Boyle was in that audition, every day? What if I could be willing to forgive every past disappointment and hurt, and even forgive those who were mocking me in the very moment that they did so, and just open my heart and my mouth and sing and bless them in the next instant?

If I could, then I would be free.

One of My Inspirations: Susan Boyle, Part 2

To me, what Susan Boyle did in her first audition was transcendent. She had been laughed at all her life, and called “Simple Susan” as a child. In fact, she’d had an earlier audition a few years prior for a similar show and apparently the judge was more interested in making fun of her than in hearing her sing. His loss.

If you read up on her, you learn that she was essentially unemployed her entire adult life, never married, no children. Living alone with her cat, Pebbles. I cringe with sadness when I think of it: that beautiful, transcendent voice hidden away in a Scottish village, alone at home with her cat her whole life. Meanwhile she had to endure the mockery and condescension of those who had the power to give her an opportunity.

One of My Inspirations: Susan Boyle, Part 1

I write a lot on the topics of self-love, on releasing our negativity and tapping into the power and expression of our higher selves.

For my next few posts I want to write about one of the most inspirational examples I have ever witnessed of a woman doing just those things. It’s always good to have an example to show us the way.

Move Over Matte

Sweet Dreams

Foundations are exiting the stage and faces are getting updated with a more translucent glow. Formulas such as KORA Organics Tinted Day Cream are more transparent and allow the skin to shine through, lending a more natural look, whilst still boasting a luminous velvety finish.

I keep a KORA Organics Calming Lavender Mist bedside and mist my face and pillow with it to help me drift off to sleep. Lavender is renowned for its calming properties, reducing tension, stress and promoting a restful nights sleep.

The Application of Essential Oils, Part 2

The Application of Essential Oils, Part 2

Continuing our discussion on essential oil application, so what do they have to do with the demands of modern living; when we continue to expect more of ourselves; others/relationships and our peers/careers than ever before? How can these catalysts of change help us when we continue to feel time poor; as we strive to excel at home, work and play (because we want it all), when we push ourselves to meet deadlines, fulfill even the most unrealistic goals; and … we want to make money, have fun, be successful, be loved, nurtured and on and on our wish list goes.

Well, maybe they can help us make the small and effective changes to our body and mind by simply deploying them in our everyday skin and body care regimes. All it takes is ‘choice’ and ‘action’.
