Caroline Stilwell Burckle Loves Natura Culina!

“Being a swimmer, my skin was always subjected to the harsh chlorine chemicals every single day. When I retired from the sport, I couldn’t seem to shake the dry skin! Very few products quench the thirst that my skin needs, except for the Natura Culina Shea Butters! My favorite scents are Blissful and Delight. I love to layer these butters on after using my favorite scrub, the Layered Chocolate Lavender Body Scrub! It is the most perfect way to exfoliate and moisturize at the exact same time.”

She Scribes About Natura Culina

August 16, 2014 | Leave a comment

chocolate dynamic duoShe Scribes” recently reviewed Natura Culina’s Spa Day Dynamic Duo of Chocolate Sugar Body Scrub and Organic Lavender Shea Butter

I’d like to think that the title for this post caught some people’s attention.

Most people love chocolate. A little piece of real dark chocolate daily can actually be good for you. I’m referring to read cocoa (like 90% cocoa) not the inexpensive chocolates you find at your grocer’s checkout. Sadly we can’t indulge in a lot of chocolate because it does contain fat, calories and sugar. All the delicious things usually do.

What if there was a way to enjoy chocolate that was fat free, sugar free and calorie free? You are probably thinking that such a chocolate would taste kind of gross. It probably would if I was referring to the kind of chocolate you eat. I’m actually talking about chocolate you can enjoy in the shower.

Summer Travel

SUMMER TRAVEL


Who doesn’t love going on vacation? The summer season is a favorite for most people’s annual “time-out” and most of us will be boarding a plane to get to our destinations which mean challenging our skin to the limit.

The recycled and pressurized air in the cabin is extremely drying and dehydrating, leaving your skin looking dull and dry. Then add on the stress of travel and jet lag and you’ve got a recipe for redness, blotchiness and the dreaded breakouts.

Hydrating Hydrosols

July 10, 2014 | Leave a comment

FEATURED PRODUCTS – NOURISHING FACIAL MIST

ROSEHYDRATING HYDROSOLS:
Hydrosols are also known as floral waters and are made from the steam of distilling various plant materials. We love rose! Not only for it’s beautiful scent but also for it’s amazing hydrating and skin smoothing qualities.

Hydrosol are like essential oils but in far less of a concentration and safe to use directly on the skin. You see when a distiller brews the plants petals and leaves the steam fills the pot and, as it rises, it causes the “glands” of the plant to burst and release the oils and essence of the plant into the steam. The oil rises through a condenser and collects in a separate vessel. This is what we know as essential oil, but what about all of that fragrant water that was steamed? Well this is our hydrosol, or floral water.

Don’t Fry This 4th of July

DON’T FRY THIS SUMMER! IT’S ALL ABOUT HEALTHY SKIN!

summer-skinJuly 4th is the official start of the summer season.  Time to enjoy the outdoors with the ones we love!  Many of us will be dusting off the BBQ, packing a suitcase for a long weekend getaway and hopefully considering ways to protect our precious skin!

There’s little that we regularly come in contact with that damages our skin more than the sun. Luckily, there are ways to minimize that damage. Here are a few things you can do while also enjoying the deliciously sunny weather!

BEFORE HEADING INTO THE SUN:

COVER UP
Wear protective clothing, such as a long-sleeved shirt, pants, a wide-brimmed hat, and sunglasses, where possible.  There are so many stylish ways to keep covered!

AVOID SUN TANNING AND TANNING BEDS
Ultraviolet (UV) light from tanning beds and the sun causes skin cancer and wrinkling. If you want to look like you’ve been in the sun, use a sunless self-tanning product instead.

SEEK SHADE/USE UMBRELLAS
Seek shade when appropriate.  Take an umbrella to the beach or pool.  Remember that the sun’s UV rays are strongest between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Lucky for us, Daylight Savings makes it easy to enjoy many hours of fun outside of these hours.

Summer Solstice

June 21, 2014 | Leave a comment

summer-solstice-sunset

Did you know that while the Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year, it’s not the hottest day of the year?

Earth’s atmosphere, land, and oceans absorb part of the incoming energy from the Sun and store it, releasing it back as heat at various rates. Water is slower to heat (or cool) than air or land. At the summer solstice, the Northern Hemisphere receives the most energy (highest intensity) from the Sun due to the angle of sunlight and day length. However, the land and oceans are still relatively cool, due to spring’s temperatures, so the maximum heating effect on air temperature is not felt just yet. Eventually, the land and, especially, oceans will release stored heat from the summer solstice back into the atmosphere. This usually results in the year’s hottest temperatures appearing in late July, August, or later, depending on latitude and other factors. This effect is called seasonal temperature lag.

Beauty Tips For June Brides

June 17, 2014 | Leave a comment

June Bride

Historically, June has always been the most popular month for weddings. That is where the term “June bride” comes from. The month of June derives its name from Juno, the Roman goddess of marriage. It was anciently thought that couples who married in June would be blessed with prosperity and happiness.

There were also many logistical reasons for brides to consider June weddings. Brides married in June were likely to give birth to a first child in spring (also thought to bring good luck) and recover in time for the fall harvest. And we love this little fact from history: During medieval times a person’s annual bath usually fell in May or June, meaning that June brides still smelled relatively fresh. Yicks!
