WHAT WE’RE LOVING THIS MONTH
Let’s talk about exfoliating for a minute, shall we?
Like many of you, I’m all about minimal products in my bathroom. I can easily turn into a product junkie but then I don’t end up using half of the products and they end up expiring. So, I’m doing something a bit different this year.
I threw away ALL of my beauty products (and I get sent a LOT of products from brands) because it was overwhelming and so many products – even though they claimed to be ‘clean’ – were still filled with junk that were affecting my skin and my hormones (hello PMS!). It’s amazing what a chemical in a beauty product can do to the chemical reactions in your body, isn’t it?
Anyway, that said, I’m on the lookout for a VERY FEW key products this year and when I find them I’m going to share them with you.
First up are non-toxic exfoliants, because a girl’s gotta exfoliate that skin of hers to get that soft baby touch we all crave. I’ve never been a weekly exfoliator but I do like to do it once every two weeks to keep my skin soft and silky.
HOW WE USE THEM
I’m going to start by talking about the glove in the top row. That’s all I really need to address here. Everything else is up to you and will depend on your personal preference because we’re all different. But this GLOVE! Where do I begin?
My skin would feel like sandpaper without it. Let’s just put it that way. I think that should give you a good understanding of how powerful this baby is. You can use this glove with regular soap or with an exfoliator on your body and WOW, you will notice results within a few minutes. I kid you not. Try it for yourself.
The other products are all brands that I trust and admire because they’re clean and their ingredients are pure. I’ve used each of these products throughout the last few years and I must say these are my favorite non-toxic exfoliants to use because they’re not too harsh and they’re not BS – they’re just right, like Goldilocks. You’ll see.
WHY WE TRUST THESE BRANDS
I’ve been through my fair share of brands and these are the ones that I’m relying on right now when it comes to exfoliating. I highly suggest clicking on each one to see what works for you. Some of you exfoliate in the shower, others do it in the sink before bed and some of you in the AM before work.
There is no one-size-fits-all approach so do as you wish and have FUN with this. Beauty is supposed to be F-U-N so go enjoy yourself and treat yourself to a little scrub to polish that beautiful body of yours.
SHOP the STORY
My upcoming Whole Body Transformation Retreat in Santa Cruz, California in August a great place for you to start to dive into understanding these deeper layers of healing and to understand for yourself first-hand that healing is a journey. This retreat is my lowest price point yet, which is a great opportunity for anyone looking to meet me in person and understand the missing pieces keeping you unwell.
This retreat is based on the groundbreaking new method I created and called The Valpone Method™, which I developed to help you understand and discover the emotional, energetic and physical aspects of healing. And that’s exactly what I’m here to help you with because somewhere deep inside you know that there is more than just eating clean to really bring yourself back to life. Unfortunately, there is no quick fix or magic pill for health issues.
