Our skin is actually the largest organ and needs nourishing attention. With a little extra lovin', our skin will glow from the inside out, so edible, living skincare must be accompanied by a wildly natural and luscious diet with cleansing, whole, living ingredients. If we can eat our beauty regime and we're using organic foods to make our products, the ingredients are likely safe for our skin.
My career as a "natural dermatologist" began as I mixed living, whole ingredients together to make the following three skin treatments. I opened the cupboards, harvested some fruit and herbs, and took out the blender.
The Moisturizing Mask
This stuff works miracles — my skin looks brighter and feels fab. Both basil and grapefruit seed extract are antibiotic and work to prevent and heal breakouts. Orange peel is an amazing brightener and the benefits of Vitamin C are extraordinary. Skin also gobbles up the moisturizing fat and nutrients in coconut milk, leaving it smooth.
