November 2014

In our quest to live healthy and productive lives, we often latch onto mainstream health advice and fads that lead us off into a the wrong direction. We think we are doing everything right and suddenly we find out that it probably wasn't a good thing after all.

We are bombarded with advertisements and commercials on a constant basis. We want to believe all of the lofty promises and so we take chances and spend our hard-earned money on things that just don't work, and often do more harm than good.

I have spoken with so many clients who tell me they have baskets full of  products that just don't work. But, they are reluctant to throw them out because of the money they spent. Why
don't these products work when they have got added collagen, retinol, jojoba, hemp oil, lavender oil, plant stem cells, aloe vera... and on, and on?

Simple... they are polluted with synthetic chemicals. When we consume products that contain synthetic ingredients, our bodies do not recognize these chemicals and do not know how to process them. And so, the body stores them and they build up in our systems where they can cause serious problems such as autoimmune disorders, breast cancer, bladder cancer, neurological damage, reproductive problems, and birth defects.

When we consume organic materials, whether they are ingested, or absorbed into our bodies through our skin, our bodies recognize these materials and know exactly how to process them. This is why using basic organic formulations can produce such wonderfully dramatic results.
Ultimately, the choice is yours. Be an informed consumer.

If you really want to clean up your skin care regimen, but are reluctant to let it all go, pick out a couple of items at a time and look up their safety rating at Take it from there. Small changes can make a big difference.

Beautiful skin is the reflection of a healthy body.

The following recipes are from Return to Beauty: Old-World Recipes for Great Radiant Skin, by Narine Nikogosian:

Simmering Pumpkin Cleanser

Pumpkins are high in the mineral zinc, which is a mild astringent that tightens body tissue. It also has anti-inflammatory properties.


1 pumpkin wedge (to make 1 cup shredded)

1 teaspoon salt


Preparation: Peel and shred the pumpkin. In a small saucepan, bring 1 cup of water, the pumpkin, and salt to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the pumpkin is soft. Drain. In a blender, puree the cooked pumpkin until creamy. Allow to cool.


Application: Gently wash your face in the evening with a small amount of this mixture. Rinse off with warm water.


Cranberries 'n' Apples Mask


The beautiful dark red cranberry contains an antioxidant that helps reduce the risk of skin cancer. Because of its mild acidic quality, this fruit also offers gentle skin exfoliation.


Preparation: In a small saucepan, boil the cranberries for 5 minutes in 1 cup of water. Mash them and then allow them to cool. Shred the apple. Mix the fruits together, then add the flaxseed oil to bind.


Application: Apply a thick layer and relax for 20 minutes. Rinse off with warm water, then apply your moisturizer.


Carrot Protector Moisturizer

Your skin loves carrots year-round. High in vitamins and minerals, this vegetable prevents dryness. Gentle yogurt and olive oil combine to create the perfect emollient for hydration.

1/2 carrot, unpeeled and chopped

1 teaspoon plain yogurt

1/2 teaspoon olive oil


Preparation: Boil the carrot in 1 cup of water for 5 minutes, drain, and mash. Allow to cool. Stir in the yogurt and oil.

Application: Apply this to your face every morning and evening after cleansing.

Rich Girl Eye Cream

Avocados contain more protein than any other fruit. Their natural oils offer hydration. Sour cream will lighten dark circles.

1 teaspoon avocado

1/2 teaspoon sour cream


Preparation: In a small bowl, mash the avocado with a fork. Blend in the sour cream and mix well.

Application: Massage this gently around the eye area every morning and evening.
