    Skin Care: My Routine and Why I Don't Use Sunblock

    Skin Care: My Routine and Why I Don't Use Sunblock

    As we age, our skin becomes more dry.  Estrogen keeps our skin and tissues more supple and when that declines, the skin can become more delicate and fragile.  In this episode, I share skin care tips and my routine.
    I mentioned in my episode about hydration that water helps to keep you skin plump, which can reduce wrinkles.   
    Here is a link to a short Instagram video I did on drinking water as a meditative experience.
    Products mentioned in this episode (if you use the following links, I will receive a small percentage which supports the podcast):
    Rosewater Face Mist  
    Aroma Glow Face Complex for Dry/Sensitive Ageless Skin
    Aroma Glow Face Therapy for Dry/Sensitive Ageless Skin
    Whether you want to try the products from this store or another aromatherapy store, I highly, highly recommend using natural, organic, handmade, plant-based products. I feel that they are amazing for a skin, a luxurious treat, and they are also not tested on animals. I hope these skin tips are beneficial to you!

Yes! I love this podcast. Thank you for bringing holistic awareness to peri / menopause and helping woman navigate this transition in life. There is still so much stigma around being able to discuss this openly. Honoring this stage of lives is essential. Your information is priceless.
