Comfortable in Your Skin: About & Beyond Skin Food

Holding Space for Sleep

Holding Space for Sleep

Sleep, soft and deep—rich with dreams, shredded by nightmares or dreamless. How much do you get? How much do you need? How much do you value it? 

Whether your concern is saving your skin through the adequate release of toxins, relieving stress and inflammation, pulling away from the edge of irritability that is the hallmark of poor sleep, slowing down the aging process, treating acne, wrinkles, or peace of mind, sleep is a good place to start, because even small changes in habits can make a significant difference.

This is Not a Whisky. It is My Precleanse Routine.

Cleansing or precleansing with oil is a wonderful way to remove impurities from your skin and make the most of your skincare products. Follow with Bentonite Clay and Yogurt Cleanser with Coriander, Frankincense, and Palmarosa.
Cleansing is the most important step in a skincare regimen. Well cleansed skin helps prevent premature aging because it allows skin to receive the benefit of products and greater oxygen flow.  But what about oil cleansing or precleansing with an oil? At least twice within the space of a week's skincare routine, I find an oil precleanse to be a helpful and relaxing step in self care.  I am not a fan of a stand alone oil cleanse, but a precleanse can boost the power of your regular cleanser and offer a welcome massage.
