Skin Remedy of the week

“Take a few minutes to relax and simultaneously improve your skin with a botanical facial steam! Steam by itself opens up the pores and gives a deep cleanse. Deep breaths of steam can also clear congestion in the sinuses and lungs as well as calm the nervous system. Adding dried herbs to the steam will have even more great benefits for your skin, as well as aromatherapy!

To start, you will get your herbs ready. You want about one cup total of dried herbs:

1/4 licorice root (soothing, deep cleansing)
1/4 calendula (regenerative, anti-bacterial)
1/4 chamomile (anti-inflammatory, soothing)
1/4 rose hip (hydrating, toning)

-Bring 2-3 quarts of water to a boil, add herbs. Simmer for five minutes while you go wash your face
-Remove pot from heat, land make sure it is on a stable surface
-Drop a towel over your head and the pot, keeping your face at least 10 inches away from the water at all times
-Close your eyes, take some deep breaths and relax
-Steam for no longer than 7 minutes!
-When finished, rinse your face with warm water

*You don’t have to follow this recipe exactly, add or remove herbs freely-marshmallow root and elderflower help to hydrate dry skin, while rosemary and sage clarify oily skin.”

-Tarren Brooks

“An apple a day keeps the doctor away”

The adage, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away,” has been found to be more than true. In fact, it has been proven to be both one of nature’s best antioxidants and a friend to anyone who wants healthy hair and skin. Rich in Vitamin A, B, and C it’s skin and hair’s super food right at your fingertips.

Apples, green in particular, are great for toning and reviving tired, stressed skin. Their natural antioxidants work to fight off the free radical damage we’re exposed to every day and are especially healing if you’ve had just a little too much sun! Add wheat germ to the mix and you’ve got a ten minute mask that will give you some exfoliation and leave your skin supple and glowing.

Here’s how we do it at home:
Grate or puree an apple of your choosing so that you have a tablespoon worth of apple. In a small bowl mix with a tablespoon of wheat germ (or as much as you need to get the consistency of a paste). Apply this to a freshly washed face and leave on for ten minutes. Enjoy!
For additional variations try mixing apple with honey to a paste-like consistency and leave on for ten minutes for some extra nutrient-rich hydration. And as always, make sure you follow up with your favorite moisturizer after your at home treatment.

Skin Remedy Tip of the Week:
Skin Remedy Serum

The Skin Remedy Serum is procured from ingredients grown from Justine’s very own garden in Sausalito, CA.
Composed of Rosehip, Lavender, Geranium, Lemon, Verbena, and Chamomile this serum is generally best used on dry skin. Applied at night its anti-septic and anti-inflammatory ingredients will moisturize, soothe, and calm the skin. As an added bonus it’s combination of ingredients provide the relaxing therapies of Lavender and Chamomile to ease you into the oh-so-important good night’s sleep. Follow up with your moisturizer and wake up with truly renewed skin.

Skin Remedy Of The Week:
antioxidant rich calming and soothing mask

Did you all have a great time at Outside Lands Music Festival this weekend?! Is your skin showing it!? If so, here’s a great antioxidant rich calming and soothing mask to get that glow back and help to deliver the nourishment that was lost over the weekend.

You’ll Need:
1 tablespoon of beet juice
1 tablespoon of ground colloidal oatmeal.
1 teaspoon of honey.

Mix all ingredients together to form a paste similar to the consistency of pancake batter. After fully cleansing the skin apply this mask just before hopping in the shower. Leave on for the remainder of your shower so the steam assists in penetrating the active ingredient further into the skin. Tone and moisturizer as usual.

Beet juice is a very powerful antioxidant that reverses sun damage and gives your skin a deep exfoliation. Colloidal oatmeal helps to calm, soothe and heal damaged skin while the honey acts as a humectant, and has powerful antibacterial ingredients.

Voila! Ready for Monday!

Skin Remedy of the Week:
Hyaluronic Serum

Hyaluronic is a timeless classic in the world of skincare. Known to be the most powerful humectant every skin type can benefit greatly from this ingredient. Skin health relies heavily on maintaining a proper amount of moisture – and this can be tricky when we’re battling the sun, the environment, and our own specific skin conditions. In order to stay youthful and healthy our skin must have enough moisture.
So what makes the Hyaluronic Serum the right choice? The answer is in the name – Hyaluronic holds 1,000 times its weight in water and will seal in the moisture your skin already has. It plumps out fine lines and provides a deeper level of hydration than over the counter moisturizers. Our Hyaluronic serum feels light and won’t leave you with a greasy finish.
Skin Remedy recommends use in the morning and at night underneath your daily moisturizer for an extra kick of hydration!
