Natural Skincare

Many times we seek out products that we think will make our skin feel and look healthy, but in fact, we are doing the exact opposite.  I, for one, know this to be true from years of working with clients and teaching them proper skincare for their particular skincare needs.

I know for me my skin is super sensitive, and I make the joke that if you think of touching my face, it automatically reacts… LOL!! I am asked daily what do I use on my skin, and how do I keep it so healthy?  Ladies, I’m going to be 100% upfront with you “I am that all-natural skincare kind of girl.”  

What does that mean?  Most of my skincare regiment is found right in your kitchen.  Yup, you heard me correctly, it is found in your kitchen.  My first line of skincare is none other than H2O.


That’s correct; you read that right, it is water.  I mean, most people don’t realize how important it is for healthy skin to have enough hydration, and that starts within.  Your skin is an organ one of the largest, with cells made up primarily of water; so when it is deprived of water, it suffers.  With all that being stated it is important that you set for yourself a daily water intake schedule.  I personally drink about 52fl. oz of water per day, starting my day off with an 8oz glass of room temperature bottled water.

Now let’s get into my skin regiment – if you’d like to receive more of my tips you should follow our Instagram page at

The most effective way that I found to remove my makeup was to use a facial oil, but over the counter, facial oils irritated my skin; so I decided I would use pure olive oil.  Yes, olive oil it’s a natural emollient, which breaks down makeup and even melts away the toughest of mascara.  I use a dampened makeup remover cloth to remove my makeup once it’s broken down.


From this point, I like to make up my natural facial scrub more things you’ll find in your pantry.  Cornmeal and honey, yes cornmeal and honey- is a natural exfoliant and makes your skin feel exuberant… Here is how I make up the scrub:

  1. In a small bowl, combine the cornmeal, honey, and water.  Let it sit for about 2 minutes so the cornmeal absorbs the liquid.
  2. Gently massage your face and neck with the scrub
  3. Leave it for about 1 minute and then rinse it off with warm water

What you need:

  • 1/2 Tbs. Cornmeal
  • 1 Tbs. Honey
  • A bit of Water

Now you may or may not know how important it is to moisturize your skin.  This is such an important step that you do not need to skip at any time- Your skin needs to stay supple, which will help in warding off wrinkles, dry spots, and breakouts.  Let’s head back to my kitchen for the moisturizer I like to whip up a little bit of honey, olive oil, and lemon:

  1. In a small bowl combine all the ingredients and mix
  2. Apply to your face and neck making sure to massage up and out
  3. Allow the mixture to sit on your face for about 20 minutes, at this point I love to use my Nano Ionic Facial Steamer.  Then I use my makeup cloth to remove the product from my face to reveal glowing beautiful skin

What you need:

  • 1 Tbs. Honey
  • 1 Tbs. Olive Oil
  • A Squeeze of Lemon (a Natural skin brightener)


My final step is something that is just so healthy for your skin and it is natural, safe, clean herbal skincare, that is never tested on animals.  This product is one of the leading cosmetics and it is SMD Cosmetics Saromae Snail Serum Concentrate.  This product makes your skin glow because it is a natural hydrating solution.  This is a powerful natural herbal medicinal formulation that boosts cell regeneration and cell turnover.  The President of SMD Cosmetics understands the struggles of healthy skin and her journey to developing a product so excellent was driven from her own personal experience with issues of skin problems…  I had the great pleasure of meeting her a few years back during StyleCon NY and just to hear her story and the journey was powerful and I knew I wanted to try a product that promised to deliver so much, even for someone that has incredibly sensitive skin.  I can honestly say that I’ve fully endorsed this product have given it to my clients and family members to use and not one person has said anything different and they keep replenishing their personal supply.
