6 Useful Foods For Beautiful Skin

Do you know how to eat for beautiful skin?

I visited last week to read up on their suggested foods for beautiful skin.  Beauty from the inside out, right?

' of the fundamental tips to make your skin perfect. Health scientists prove that fruits and vegetables can provide the body with essential nutrients. Let’s discover how several foods benefit our skin as follows.'

Below are snippets of the do's and don'ts shared.  Visit to read the complete article, to get the WHY.

  • Get soft skin with fresh water.  Leave the mineral stuff alone.
  • Remove wrinkles with Black chocolate.  I chuckled at that one, because I'm sure they meant dark chocolate.  Have you ever heard anyone call dark chocolate Black chocolate?  
  • Too much sodium intake can cause wrinkles and hair breakage. 
  • Chard is an excellent source for vitamins A and C.  Hmmm, how do you season yours?  Do you even eat it?
  • Yes, honey is one of the best natural anti-aging foods, but, um, I don't think I want them in my potatoes. 
  • Fruits, fruits, and more fruits.  I'm a big juicer (Not me literally.  I like to juice.  LOL.), so I give thumbs up on this tip.  Did you know that melons prevent the appearance of skin-aging?  Stop running away from that watermelon. ;o)
  • Got acne?  Eat fish.  Mackerel, as a matter of fact. 
 Will you be eating for beautiful skin? After reading the full article, come back to let me know.

To you skin health,

Sub-Tropical Gem : What's In It? Series

Avocado Butter- INCI: Persea Gratissima

So we know that avocados are good to make a dip for chips, but those green gems aren't just for your belly, your skin wants in on the love.

Avocado Butter is obtained from the fruit of the Avocado tree which grows in sub-tropical regions of the world. Our avocado butter is made with pure avocado oil, that is expeller crushed from the fresh flesh of the avocado fruit.  This is truly a superior skin care product.

Why We Use It & Why You Should Be Using It:

  • It contains the antioxidant vitamins A, E and D that kill of the free radicals that age your skin. Not only will vitamin E fight free radicals, but it will also fade dark spots/age spots.  
  • A great emollient for dry and damaged skin.  Remember an emollient seals in moisture, so use it after showering/bathing, and on wet, clean hair.
  • A sunscreen by nature.  Hmmm, seems as though we offer several products with that attribute. Natural sunscreens are definitely needed for those with an increase of melanin in their skin. 

Avocado Butter can be found in our Lush Body Butter and in DECADENCE Chocolate Truffle Layered Sugar Scrub.

What are your thoughts on the What's In It? Series? Helpful?  Informative?  Can live without it?

Woman Entrepreneur : Myisha Croom-Turner

Woman Entrepreneur: Myisha Croom-Turner
Who Is She: wife, mother, daughter, sister, bohemian jewelry designer, wearer & seller of feminine, bohemian garb (I love it ALL!)
Mantra: be free. be unique.

Personal Note: Another beautiful person that I met online in 2007.  From the moment I saw one of Myisha's bauble creations, I was hooked, and knew that I would buy her creations from years to come. I really like her... She is girlie stylish; I "oooo" over pictures that I see of her and her family;  And she just seems super cool to chill-out with (I am drama-free. LOL.)  This year for my birthday, another great woman in my network bought me a bracelet, created by Myisha.  This woman did not know how fond I already was of Myisha and her baubles; she didn't know she was adding to my collection.  I thought that was just AWESOME!  

My Mission: My goal is to create fun, fashionable, and unique bohemian style jewelry that goes beyond the changing trends. I like creating pieces that can be worn today or 10 years from now and still be very boho chic!

My motto: Why are your trying so hard to fit in when you were born to stand out?

Inspiring, right!

How do I stay connected to this fabulous Light?

Customer Product Review -Essentials Deodorant | Smell Good Spa™

I told J___ I went to the store and bought him some deodorant.

He said and I quote, "No, I like this one better. The one from Miss Itiel. It's the best thing I've tried. It works because I don't smell."

Take that compliment from a growing 14-year-old boy. That's his statement and he is sticking to it! :-)

He also said, "It smells a lot; but it's a good smell." (the deodorant)

He also likes it because he can sweat. The other deodorants prevent him from sweating. He said that didn't seem normal.
