the Beauty of Self Care

Ancient texts and modern philosophers speak of our universe as a totality — an organic whole. Today, this holistic vision is not one commonly embraced or understood, and I believe it is why self care is often so mistaken, and under-appreciated. I see self care as so critically important, because I have learned that everything starts with — You. It is …

When to buy organic

People often ask me if I always buy everything organic, but I’ll be the first to tell you that health coaches definitely aren’t always perfect! What really matters is how the food was grown. Some smaller farms use all organic practices but haven’t gone through the full organic certification process yet because it can be expensive for a small business. Get …

Alcohol + Skin

I am not a heavy drinker, but I do enjoy having a drink when I am out with friends. Different alcohols have different effects on the skin, but as a general rule, the clearer, the better: vodka, gin, and tequila get out of your system quicker.  Dehydration is the issue — Because it is a diuretic, alcohol pushes water out …

Sagging Eyelids

The skin on your eyes is the thinnest skin on the face. As we age, our skin produces less and less collagen – the protein which is responsible for keeping the skin tight and plump. Eyelids are thin and thus more prone to aging because there is no lipidic layer and very few collagen fibers.  So it is natural for them to …

Décolletage SkinCare

Most of us have been cleansing and moisturising since we were in high school but how many pay attention to our chest? The skin on the décolletage is very fragile as it produces less oil than the face, but also often receives more sun exposure so forgetting to apply SPF and neglecting to nourish it can result in premature ageing …

High Frequency Facial

High frequency is used in our facials to treat acne, stimulate collagen production, and increase blood flow, resulting in a clearer, brighter complexion. High frequency safely stimulates the skin using thermal energy which triggers blood flow and creates …
