Skincare Saturday: Skintervention Q&A!

Skincare Saturday: Skintervention Q&A!

Happy Skincare Saturday! This week we’re featuring our third Q&A session with the Skintervention Team! We got some great questions from our Facebook followers for our new Q&A feature, and we’re answering your questions right here on the blog.  We’ll be adding some of our other FAQs to the mix to bring you even more skin care help. For more in-depth information on each topic, be sure to check out the Skintervention Guide. Today’s Q: Sandal season is approaching and my feet could use a little TLC! I have dry, cracked heels AND my toenails are yellow and brittle. Help! We all want our feet to be as non-offensive as possible. But getting those feetsies into summer sandals requires a bit of preparation. Let’s start with your heels! To get them ready, try soaking them every d …Continue Reading

Skincare Saturday: Drink tea for a healthy glow!

Skincare Saturday: Drink tea for a healthy glow!

Happy Skincare Saturday! The Skintervention Guide isn’t just about what you put on your skin. It’s about healing your skin from the inside out. You can’t change the outside without also changing the inside. This means changing what you eat AND drink. As many of you know, tea is excellent for your skin! There are many different plant-derived and herbal teas to choose from – whether it’s green, black, white, rooibos, or chamomile. But different skin-enhancing teas provide different specific benefits. #1: Antioxidants All herbal teas contain polyphenols or flavonoids, which are powerful antioxidants.  Antioxidants are used by your body to protect and heal cells, and promote a healthy glow. Tea is much richer in antioxidants than fruits and vegetables. However, not all types of tea …Continue Reading

Skincare Saturday: This month’s skincare favorite (& a giveaway!)

Happy Skincare Saturday! Don’t miss your chance to win some amazing goodies at the end of this post! When an awesome company comes along that uses sound ingredients and ethical practices, we love sharing their work with you. We’re thrilled to announce this month’s skincare favorite: Buffalo Gal Grassfed Beauty! Meet Shalley! Founder, Shalley Carrell, is a grass-farmer raising Asian water buffalo, alpacas, and sheep. Being an active farm girl requires a daily deep pore cleansing and detoxification. Everyday farm life exposes the skin to wind, dust, dirt, and grime. So how do you remove all that dirt and grime caked in your pores at the end of the day? For years Shalley searched for an all-natural moisturizer that would nourish the skin without stripping its natural oils. When sh …Continue Reading

Skincare Saturday: How to take Fermented Cod Liver Oil (video+outtakes!)

This post also appears at Real Food Liz. Hello, Skintervention-ers! Liz here. I want to chat a bit about one of my favorite skin care super-foods. Few things strike fear into the heart of Real Foodies like figuring out how to take Fermented Cod Liver Oil. And while I can’t promise it’ll be all tasty rainbows and candy butterflies, I (and my skin) CAN tell you…it’s worth it. IMPORTANT THING ALERT: Actually, the Green Pasture product I take in the video below is the “Blue Ice Royal” Fermented Cod Liver Oil/Butter Oil BLEND. That’s the product I recommend. The product I DON’T recommend is lazy, slow, sputtering backwoods country internet that takes 12 hours to upload videos in which you incorrectly identified what you were taking. (Sorry, y̵ …Continue Reading

Skincare Saturday: a few of my skincare favorites…

Skincare Saturday: a few of my skincare favorites…

When it comes to healthy skin, I’m always learning and experimenting with new products. Some things have worked, and some haven’t. What I’ve learned is that you don’t need a bunch of fancy products! In fact, a lot of my favorites are fairly inexpensive, extremely versatile, and will last a LONG time! You can make your piggy bank happy AND establish a skin care routine that’s effective. As always, the foundation for healthy skin is good nutrition and well-managed digestion. Liz talks about this in the Skintervention Guide. So here’s what I’m loving right now: #1 – Bentonite Clay While a large chunk of the Skin & Body Care Section of the Skintervention Guide is devoted to healing masks, you can learn a lot about these skin-care powerhouses by sim …Continue Reading
