How To Take Care Of Your Lips: Carmex Comfort Care Lip Balms

Everyone knows that it’s important to take good care of your body whether its feature or figure. There are plenty of areas of the body to focus on, but have you considered your lips as one? You ladies probably stock up your cabinet with cleansers, serums, creams, sunscreens, and masks; but do you have the proper care instruments for your lip? If you think about it, your lips are always exposed; they’re prone to dehydration. The skin on the lips is also unlike skin anywhere else on the body: it’s thinner and has no oil glands.  The result can be red, rough, and chapped lips. In order to prevent that, you are going to need a product you can depend on to stop that! I happen to know just what you need: Carmex Comfort Care Lip Balms.

Mother’s Day: Cherry Blossom at Descanso Gardens

Mother’s Day is coming up and if you’re lucky enough to have your mom around L.A. on that day, you’re probably thinking about how to celebrate. Brunch and flowers are not the only things you can do to thank your mom for all she has done for you! Be creative! This year (2018), thanks to the weather, the cherry blossom in LA has been delayed until mid-May and it’s perfect to take your mom to see that delicate flower, all pink and white-a slice of spring magic. You don’t need to fly her to Tokyo or DC to see the cherry blossom…but just drive 20 minutes outside Los Angeles to La Cañada Flintridge where Descanso Gardens is.

My Plant-Based Hair Care Routine: How I Keep My Long Hair Healthy

As my husband and I care for our dog, Lychee, fighting his kidney disease battle, we learn a lot about macrobiotic lifestyle. We incorporate more plant-based meals into our daily life. We learn that our kidneys are not only affected by the bad toxic food we eat everyday (fast food, white rice/bread, oily/sugary snacks, sodas, coffee,…) but also by fragrance chemicals that we’re possibly exposed to every day (perfumes, detergent, soaps, lotions, shampoos,..). These fragrance chemicals (synthetic scents) represent an unidentified mixture of ingredients including carcinogens, allergens, respiratory irritants, endocrine disruptors, neurotoxic chemicals and environmental toxicants. So my husband and I try our best to replace everything “fragrant” in our household with homemade plant-based alternatives; for example, we home grow aloe vera and use the meat (with Manuka honey) for body lotions and face masks, we use our garden grown grapefruits to make our own dish washer and hand soap,….As we were trying to figure out how to make our own shampoos and conditioners, I got contacted by Phyto to try their plant-based haircare products. For over 50 years, Phyto has been a leader in plant-based hair care. All of their products are overall 95% botanicals and formulated in their family-owned labs in France.

Their products embrace the principle that healthy hair begins at the root, and they have created so many unique products that contain no parabens, sodium laurate sulfate, synthetic fragrances, and no added water. Since then I have incorporated Phyto in my haircare routine and every since I started following this regime my hair changed completely! Below, I’ve outlined this routine and the products I use along the way for you. My hope is that all of my time and energy can help at least one of you get one step closer to the hair you’ve always dreamed of.
