Chia for Beauty

I am so excited to be a contributor to the new book Superfoods for Life: Chia by Lauri Boone, RD. I met Lauri a few years back when I was assisting Kris Carr for an inspiring Omega Institute workshop. We stayed in touch and I was thrilled when she asked me to contribute a beauty recipe to her second Superfoods book!

Lauri included my Soothing Chia Beauty Mask in her power-packed book of recipes featuring this amazing little seed.

Pick up the book here to get my hydrating mask recipe and much more chia goodness!

Winter Weather Beauty Essentials

With the cold outside and dry heat inside, let's just say we can feel a little less-than radiant during this time of year!

Here are 3 beauty products that can make your skin and lips feel a little more lush these days...

W3ll People Nudist Lip Balm - While I love lipstick, even the natural ones can be drying and the freezing cold temps certainly don't help. That's why W3ll People's aloe-based lip balm has become an essential I keep close at hand. Not only is it the most hydrating lip balm I've tried, but it also delivers a lovely pop of sheer color. Winner!

Nourish Organic Raw Shea Butter - This is a must for winter-weather! Shea butter is extremely moisturizing and creates a protective barrier between your skin and the elements. I love this one by Nourish Organic because it's simple, affordable and odorless, just in case you don't like the nutty smell of some raw shea butters.

Kahina Giving Beauty Serum - As soon as the weather changes, your skincare routine should likely have changed too. For the past few winters, Kahina's Serum has been my staple and this season was no different. I just love the way this product smells (ylang ylang, neroli, myrr, lavender!), feels and how it soothes and repairs dry skin instantly. I use it on my face but it's fabulous on body and hair too!
