Scrubs are a year-round essential to give your skin a fresh start at least a few times a week.
Once you get good at eyeballing (or measuring) proportions, you can make a scrub that is perfect for your needs! These are a great start… and from here you can add fun things like:
- add specific essential oil blends for whatever you need skin & mood-wise (frankinscence is excellent for immunity and grounding, rose is beautifying, etc, etc. )
- you can also substitute coconut oil, sweet almond oil, sesame oil or grape seed oil for olive oil
- or… use super-fine sugar for sensitive skin, and raw sugar for more voluptuousness!
Have fun mixing up freshness for your skin every day! xoxo Dana

Well, well, well, just when I thought I’d tried every detox bath out there…. Cinnamon sticks, lemons and hebal teas are going in the bathrime rotation thanks to the brilliance of Picklee. They’ve broken down the benefits of each bath component right HERE in case you are wondering what it does!

Roses are healing flowers.

Today, I am so excited that celebrity makeup artist Chantal Moore has discovered a new rose-enriched health & beauty upgrade for everyone- a brilliant natural deodorant- from Lovefresh.

I first “got into” brows after a rather vintage episode of Oprah where she demonstrated the difference in faces after shaping and filling in the often ignored eyebrow. What I thought initially would be an episode that would lead me down the road of my Auntie Val who had silent movie star perfect “drawn” eyebrows 24 −7, instead brought a realization: a little brow powder was something magical, a whole makeover to structure my face more definitively without much fuss or skill. It was like my eyes were brighter, my cheeks seemed perkier, my whole face a bit more lit up.
And its simple.
Today I am thrilled that celebrity makeup artist Chantal Moore is sharing a cruelty-free, vegan brow powder from Tarte that also doubles as a hair powder for a bit of oomph when you need it! Continue Reading…
Beauty oils are my personal favorite beauty-anything! Body oils, hair oils, scalp massage oils… and skin oils. While standard virgin coconut oil and sweet almond can do wonders after a shower, and jojoba, castor oil and even argan are great in my hair, a perfect face oil is way more specialized. Beaty oils require a bit more refinement and alchemy in their mix to actually do a job and not sort of sit on my face. Today, celebrity makeup artist and balanced beauty expert Chantal Moore shares a divine beauty oil that is not just brilliant for your face… its magic wherever you need extra-rejuvenating glow!

I’m a kitchen beauty alchemist. At least three times a week you’ll find me stirring, shaking, mixing and rubbing all kinds of oils, fruit and spices with clays or aromatherapy for some grand beautifying purpose. It’s always been a great love of mine to “feed” my skin and hair.
That said, I have brands I reach for that far surpass my kitchen capabilities and all kinds of potions that are in the spirit of my own kitchen experimentation. Today, celebrity makeup artist and balanced beauty expert Chantal Moore has shared a brand- and a face glow mask- so deliciously wonderful I think it will be my new chocolate beauty passion of the year.
