DIY Homemade Skin Conditioning Wipes // Natural Skincare

The weather is incredible here in Minneapolis right now and I can't keep myself indoors! I've been outside for hours every day. So good! But I've really been noticing the effects of months of frosty, dry weather on my skin. My face is breaking out a bit right now, (too much sugar?) but has dry, flaky patches, too. It's time for me to switch up my routine a bit and make sure that I'm taking a bit better care of things!

I got to work creating a lovely skin conditioning wipe that cleans your skin, moisturizes your skin, and feels refreshing without drying. Not only are they wonderful for your skin, but they are super easy to make.

Avoid Stress Eating with Self-Care {Bright Line Eating Book Review}

In my adult life, I've been a size 2 and a size 12 - and every size in between. It seems the older I get, the less I care about the size of my pants and the more I care about how I FEEL. Lately I've been FEELING stressed. I'm not talking about the kind of stress that takes away my appetite and makes me lose weight - like when I went through my divorce. I'm talking about the kind of stress that makes me want to head for the comfort food.

I know that I'm not alone. In my circle of friends, especially my female friends, I'm hearing the same thing from almost everyone. We are stressed out by constant political posts on Facebook and Twitter. We are afraid of what might be coming down the pipeline. (literally and figuratively) We are worried about losing our rights. We are worrying ourselves sick - and that state of constant worry is starting to have a pretty dramatic impact on our bodies!
