Glowing Skin with Prtty Peaushun – Review & Giveaway

Glowing Skin with Prtty Peaushun – Review & Giveaway

Celebrities are known for looking perfect on the red carpet because there is always an army of people and products that go into their appearance. And you know that shimmering, glowing skin celebs have on red carpets and models have in photo shoots? Well, you can blame Prtty Peaushun‘s line of skin firming, shimmering lotions. 😉 Developed by Hollywood makeup artist, Bethany Karlyn, Prtty Peaushun (pronounced “pretty potion”) is a favorite of celebs like Gwyneth Paltrow, Cate Blanchett, and Taylor Swift, and trainer Tracy Anderson. Aside from getting gorgeous, dewy skin with an Epic Beauty-style diet and lifestyle, you can get an instant, picture-perfect glow from Prtty. I was looking into buying a pouch to try and, as fate would have it, they contacted me to ask if I’d like a Prtty lotion to review. My answer was “absolutely!” and here I am, reviewing this natural glow-giver. It’s not a self-tanner and it won’t make you look like a trashy sparkly mess, thanks to the super tiny light-reflecting particles. (Want a Prtty pouch of your own? Click here or scroll down to enter the giveaway – there will be 2 winners!) First, I love the pouch. It is a heckuvalot bigger in person than the pictures lead you to believe. Here’s my hand holding it, for perspective (and do note: my hands are not tiny – I have those long skinny witchy hands). It’s minimalistic, easy to use, and allows you to get out every last drop. Each pouch is 8 fluid ounces, which will last me months (probably a year, since I don’t use lotion often). The color...
GIVEAWAY! $150 Skin Apotheke + $75 U.S. Wellness Meats Gift Certificates

GIVEAWAY! $150 Skin Apotheke + $75 U.S. Wellness Meats Gift Certificates

Today I have a special treat for everyone… I am combining two of my favorite companies in one superb giveaway: Skin Apotheke and U.S. Wellness. I am rarely loyal to skin care brands, but Skin Apotheke is one of my rare exceptions. Ria, the owner and meticulous creator of this Ayurvedic goodness, is not only a wonderful person with a gigantic heart, she is fantastically gifted at what she does. Her skin care line is at once simple and expertly formulated, and lends incredible results. Soft, dewy skin that enjoys the treatment, instead of looking punished by it (red, irritated skin after a mask, anyone? not the case here). One winner will get a $150 gift certificate to use on any of the products in the Skin Apotheke online shop. Check out these bestsellers from Skin Apotheke: Organic Radiance Ubtan Scrub Rejuvenating Eye Creme Ayurvedic Fresh Wild Rose and Sandalwood Mask U.S. Wellness Meats is my trusted source of grass-fed and, most-importantly, compassionately-raised animal products. As a teenager, I went vegan for animal rights reasons, not knowing that other facilities existed besides disgusting feedlots and cruel slaughterhouses. I learned while living in Northern California that there are farmers and ranchers that love their animals and care for them properly. I only purchase from U.S. Wellness Meats and local humane farmers, and they are graciously offering a $75 gift certificate to one winner. Check out these bestsellers from U.S. Wellness: Pastured, antibiotic-free ground turkey 85% lean grass-fed ground beef Tri-tip grass-fed steak  GIVEAWAY DETAILS One $150 gift certificate to Skin Apotheke (e-gift certificate, not physical gift card).

Talking Beauty with Sarah Fragoso + Cookbook GIVEAWAY! (Closed)

Hey everyone! Today I have an awesome interview with Sarah Fragoso, author of the super popular Everyday Paleo website and Everyday Paleo cookbook. She is one of my favorite paleo folks – she’s a working, traveling, super busy mum of 3 boys and maintains a fantastic diet and exercise routine for herself and her family. Her cookbook is also an excellent tool for anyone wanting to follow an Epic Beauty Guide-style diet for clear skin, since her recipes are quick and tasty. Annnnd…we’re giving away a copy of her cookbook! Keep reading… 1. Your cookbook is a favorite in my household collection. How long did it take you compile this tome and what was your favorite part of creating it? It took me almost a year to create and compile Everyday Paleo.  My favorite part of creating it was the simple fact that this was a family project.  My husband and my children were all extremely involved, interested, and honest throughout the process and I could not have done it without their loving support. 2. If you could pick one recipe from Everyday Paleo, which one would you say is your favorite? My personal favorite would have to be the Steak Chile Rellenos but my families absolute favorite is hands down the Everyday Meatloaf. 3. You have three adorable sons and are in great shape. Could you tell us how you got fit post-pregnancy? Changing my eating habits was number one in my physical transformation. For fitness I worked out twice a week at Norcal Strength and Conditioning under the guidance of Robb Wolf and his amazing wife Nicki...

How to Beat Eczema & Dry Skin – Plus, GIVEAWAY!

Hey everyone! As you all know, I’m a huge fan of Ayurvedic medicine (and Ayurvedic products like Skin Apotheke) as a tool for skin care, and it’s an excellent compliment to anyone’s skin care knowledge. Today I have a great guest post by Kristen Ma, author of Beauty Pure & Simple: The Ayurvedic Approach to Beautiful Skin. Her book is an awesome resource for Ayuverdic techniques for skin care and beauty. Keep reading and don’t miss the bottom of the article, where I announce an awesome giveaway for 3 lucky winners. ……. The Three Faces of Eczema: Beauty Through Ayurveda (How to Beat Eczema & Dry Skin This Winter) by Kristen Ma www.tibetconnection.org/administrator/sys/ With the winter weather approaching, our skin will get battered and beaten by the elements. This makes our complexions vulnerable to dehydration, irritation, and a variety of skin ailments. One of the most common winter-triggered beauty conditions is eczema. Unfortunately, it is one of the most misdiagnosed skin problems due to the fact that it is also very misunderstood. From a dermatological perspective, we don’t really know what eczema is and have come to no conclusions about its real cause. Usually, a derm will send you home with a prescription for cortisone – which is a steroid that suppresses your immune response and thins your skin over time. While this will calm the condition down temporarily, it does not take a long-term approach, leaving the root cause of your eczema untreated. It is also a confusing condition because it is expressed in so many different ways. Some of us are red, some itchy, some flaky, and...
