I have documented here on my blog some struggles with rosacea and acne that I have had. I often try new products hoping for some new magic to shine through and give me clear glowing skin. Lately I have felt I barely need to put powder on which is Huge for me. I am loving my skin. The only problem is because I began so many changes all at the same time I don't know if there is one magic cure or a sacred combination in the mix. So, I thought I'd share it all! Starting with Simply Divine Botanicals a skincare line so pure you could eat it. One of my goals has been to use paraben-free products which is tricky when dealing with rosacea and acne because most lines dealing with these issues use them. But not this yummyness!

I've been using:
*Black Velvet Foaming Facial Cleanser for all skin types (I had tried You Can't Zit Here and found it too much for me). Black Velvet suits me perfectly- sensitivities and all! Daily.
*Gypsy Rose Tea Astringent for all skin types- amazing healing life changing product for me. Love! Daily.
*Face the Day! a seaweed serum I don't use daily but I love this when I'm feeling a little dry or have stressed skin (like from flying a lot!).
*Plump up the Volume facial mist is used to activate the above seaweed serum but sometimes I use this over Skincredible (below) because it just feels so nice.
*Skincredible. Seriously. Daily. Smells earthy and heavenly at the same time. Gorgeous results.
*Honey I Shrunk the Pores- I can use this every other day and the result is firm glowing skin. Love.

And because they deserve mentioning: Two body products I've been using from Simply Divine Botanicals are How Now Brown Cacao which is a rich chocolaty body cream- swoon! And You Glow Girl Glitter Body Butter which smells like lemon, lavender and sage and makes me all shimmery! Check it all out at http://www.simplydivinebotanicals.com/ and another fun place to shop for these is at http://www.oneluckyduck.com/

I've also been taking some new supplements and vitamins:
*Vitamineral Green almost every day a scoop of this green powder goes into my smoothies.
*On a whim after reading this article http://galadarling.com/article/i-love-my-magical-pills
I quickly snatched up and started taking both Multi + Daily Glow and Perfect Skin. I take one pill of each with food every other day. I didn't realize these weren't veg when I bought them but I'm going to continue to use them because I paid for them and I think they are helping.
*MegaFlora Optimal Potency Probiotic Formula, one every day before I eat breakfast.
*Whole Foods Blair's Liver Renewal. Also one with food every other day.
*Chlorella tablets   I munch on these with my smoothie after a good workout! Angela Stokes-Monarch has been known to eat these and her skin is to live for!

New routine:
*Drinking more water, tea and kombucha.
*Exercising six days a week without fail. Consistency in weight training, cardio, plyometrics, and sweat!
*Deep breathing & meditating.
*Yoga- spending a little time upside down every single day!

Happy October first! I wish you health, happiness, deep awareness and peace. And of course an abundance of love.
