    Monthly Chin Breakouts - how to tackle hormonal acne

    Monthly Chin Breakouts - how to tackle hormonal acne

     
    In this podcast episode, I answer a question the question: 
    "How do I get rid of chin acne breakouts that keep coming back each month?"
    Cyclical breakouts, especially those in the chin and jawline area point directly to our hormonal cycle - which includes the increase in inflammation in our body that happens at this time as well as the change in our sebum (our skin's natural oils get stickier during this time).
    SKINCARE ROUTINE - Check out the full show notes for a step-by-step simple skincare routine.
    To really get a handle on monthly breakouts though, you'll need to focus on internal support for your skin as well (a low inflammatory diet, etc).
    HOLISTIC LIFESTYLE - Check out the skin-supporting actions and internal support suggestions that have worked for me in the full show notes over on the blog. 
    For further help with inflammation and breakouts that flare up due to hormonal spikes, check out the fulls show notes for links to checklists and other resources.

    Correcting Dry, Flaky Skin + How to Fade Acne Scars

    Correcting Dry, Flaky Skin + How to Fade Acne Scars

    In this episode of the Grounded Sage Podcast, we tackle two trending skincare concerns from our radiant rebel community: dry winter skin and acne scars.
    In this episode, I answer two common skincare questions:
    1) "My skin is dry and flaky no matter what I do! Help?!"2) "How do I fade post-acne scars/uneven skin tone and redness?"

    Vitamin C + Probiotics Serum - fade acne scars!
    See how quickly I faded a big scar on my arm here.
    Apply Body Butter to legs, arms, etc while your skin is still slightly damp for the best absorption.
    Use a cocoa butter-rich bubble bar to turn bathwater into a moisturizing treatment.  
    For dry lips, apply Lip Balm+ each and every night before bed - during the day, try out flavoured lip balm or lip rescue jelly.
    Gentle cleansers
    Good Morning Micellar: Soothing Sea Salt
    Good Morning Micellar: Acne Clarifying
    Pure Amore Gel Cleanser
    Wild Basil & Cucumber Oil Cleanser
    Happiness Boost Body Wash 

    Hydrating and moisturizing clean skincare products 
    Don't skip using a dedicated hydrator - these products are applied after cleansing and before moisturizing. They soften skin, help lubricate our pores (so debris and dead skin cells can be purged), and are often the missing key to healthy skin when a moisturizer alone isn't cutting it. Use this quiz to find one that's right for your facial care routine. For body care, use our aloe-ver body hydrator.
    Calendula Gel Hydrator
    Pumpkin Enzyme Mask as an overnight treatment (applied as my moisturizer)
    Balance Serum overtop - but feel free to try different combinations to find out what works best for you.
    Add a serum to your evening routine to give your skin the lipids it needs to rebuild and repair. My top recommendations for correcting winter dryness with serums are:
    Super dry skin: Flourish and Nourish Serum
    Sensitive skin: Rosy Repair Serum
    Acne-prone skin: Balance Serum

    How To Check In With Your Skin's Natural Barrier

    How To Check In With Your Skin's Natural Barrier

    Did you know that many skin challenges can be attributed to by a weak lipid barrier in our skin? It's our skin's natural protector (like a suit of armour) and when it's down (or in a weakened state) it leaves our skin open to irritants and sensitivity. The good news is that checking our lipid barrier, and supporting it when it needs it, doesn't have to be complicated!
    In this episode, Jamie talks about:
    How to check if our lipid barrier is in a healthy state
    How to make seasonal adjustments for autumn that support our lipid barrier
    How to support your lipid barrier with natural ingredients
    How to make sure you're not missing a key piece of the skincare puzzle
    How to identify if your lipid barrier is down and needs some TLC

    Things that stress out our skin but are often overlooked

    Things that stress out our skin but are often overlooked

    In this episode, Jamie (the founder of Grounded Sage) and Karla (brand & marketing manager for Grounded Sage) engage in a casual conversation about factors that stress out our skin outside of topical skincare products. 
    Factors discussed inhibit balance from the inside out, and while one podcast episode isn't enough time to explore all the factors that can affect a holistic whole-body approach to skincare, Karla and Jamie share how they navigate things that can take a hit on our healing journey. 
    Some of the things discussed included how the following things affect our skin:
    Moving our body vs exercise - where the two meet, how we're finding ways to move our bodies that don't require iron clad will power or a motivational pep talk
    Sleep - two different takes on how to get enough, how we're navigating changes to sleep, and what's working now (and what's worked in the past)
    Toxic relationships, boundaries, and expectations - why this affects our skin, what we've learned so far, and what hope to continue to move towards within the relationship in our lives. 
    How skincare and beauty fads, trends and novelties affect the long term health of our skin
    Seasonal living - what it means to each of us and how we work it into a skin-supporting lifestyle.
