Skincare Saturday: DIY Facial Toner with Apple Cider Vinegar – Restores pH, Great for All Skin Types

Skincare Saturday: DIY Facial Toner with Apple Cider Vinegar – Restores pH, Great for All Skin Types

This post originally appeared at Don’t Mess with Mama. It was so popular there, we wanted to share it with our Skintervention friends! For as long as I can remember I’ve been using harsh toners on my skin. Most contained alcohol, salicylic acid and a number of other additives, perfumes, artificial colors, etc. I thought they were working, but in the end they were just causing more redness, dryness and inflammation on my skin. Just check out the label for a toner I used to use. It was supposed to help my acne and keep my skin’s pH level in balance. But do you see all the ingredients? I can’t even pronounce much of it, plus there’s artificial dyes in it too. This is definitely NOT something I want on my skin anymore. Then, I learned about apple cider vinegar (ACV). It is absolutely AH- …Continue Reading

Skincare Saturday: Eczema solutions – diet, lifestyle & topical strategies for problem skin

Skincare Saturday: Eczema solutions – diet, lifestyle & topical strategies for problem skin

This post also appears at Real Food Liz. “Any advice for dealing with eczema naturally?” This is one of the top questions I get when it comes to natural skincare and healing (one of my passions). When it comes to eczema, I know a few things for sure: 1) It’s incredibly frustrating (I’ve been there); and2) There are a few “first steps” to dealing with eczema that all sufferers should try; but3) Nothing works for all eczema sufferers, all the time – because we’re all dealing with different precipitating factors. In other words, if you’ve struggled with eczema and the “first steps” toward dealing with it naturally haven’t solved things (they often don’t, at least, not completely), you’re not alone – and it’s time to dig deeper. The “first steps” are so often considered the only steps in solvi …Continue Reading

Skincare Saturday: Skintervention Q&A! What brand and type of hairbrush should I use?

Skincare Saturday: Skintervention Q&A! What brand and type of hairbrush should I use?

Happy Skincare Saturday! This week we’re featuring another Q&A session with the Skintervention Team! We got some great questions for our new Q&A feature, and we’re answering them right here on the blog. We’ll be adding some of our other FAQs to the mix to bring you even more skin and hair care help. (For more in-depth information on each topic, be sure to check out the Skintervention Guide.) Today’s Q: What brand/type of hairbrush do you recommend? Before we get to hairbrush types, let’s talk about something equally important: some people don’t realize that HOW you brush is an important part of hair care, too. It may not seem like a big deal, but the brush you’re using – and how you’re using it - does matter. Proper brushing begins with the prope …Continue Reading

Happy Skincare Saturday! We love hearing about people’s progress. We’re sharing a special testimonial from a faithful follower today. After adapting a more natural approach as outlined in the Skintervention Guide, Kelsey was able to take control of her skin by changing her diet and her routine – healing her skin from the inside out! Thanks for sharing your story Kelsey! -Amanda  ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ As most kids, aside from a very lucky few, I faced horrible acne when puberty hit.
