Oil Uses and Benefits for Your Skin and Cooking

Oils have been used for thousands of years in multiple cultures for medicinal and health purposes. They can be applied to your skin, hair and in cooking. If you have a sun burn, oils can hep sooth and hydrate your skin. If you want an anti-aging formula to reduce fine lines, oils can add hydration and smooth out wrinkles. If you are looking for a healthier way to cook, oils can give you the anti-oxidant, heart health benefits and flavor that other cooking ingredients do not.

I use oils for everything: my hair, face, in food, as a perfume, a bronzer and so much more! Here are my favorite oils, their uses and benefits from Beautycounter, Conscious Coconut, Stacia, Egyptian Magic, Spectrum and Avohaus. It’s impressive how beneficial oils are for our health and skin!

After Sun Care: Prolonging Your Tan While You Soothe and Hydrate Your Skin

As we get older, we get wiser about tanning and being under the sun. But for those of you who want a bit of that natural sun kissed glow, it’s important to make sure you soothe and hydrate your skin after you’ve been under the sun for several hours. Although post-sun skin products won’t reverse the sun’s damage, they will lock in moisture and restore the dead skin cells to help new ones grow.

I recommend Beautycounter’s Baby Oil, the Lustro Shimmer Oil, and the Hydrating Face Oil to restore hydration back into your skin, and soothe any sun burns that you may have. Plus, these oils—along with proper water rehydration and gentle exfoliation—will help prolong your tan for weeks!

Pajama-rama with an Extra Cup of Matcha Tea

gap pj's and coffee cupI love wearing comfortable PJ’s over the weekend to lounge in, while sipping and enjoying that extra cup of Matcha Green Tea. The PJ’s in this photo are from GAP, and they are the best, and even better, on sale! The material is extremely light and comfortable. Plus, the combination of blue and white is perfect (one of my favorites).

I use this “I Love You California” mug from Malibu Farms all the time. It’s a reminder of my forever love for the sunny state! 😉
