Turkey Day is here! I fully support stuffing your face with Thanksgiving food, but in addition, how about putting those ingredients ON your face, for healthy, glowing skin?
I’m not suggesting you slather the actual mashed potatoes on your cheeks between explaining your political views to your red-state uncle, but rather look to the traditional ingredients of this American food orgy for inspiration!
As we head into the holiday season, which is also cold weather in most places, here are a few ideas to use Thanksgiving food ingredients to keep your skin healthy and happy.
Celebrate Thanksgiving from the outside in!
– Cranberry sauce = Cranberry Seed Oil in Laurel Whole Plant Organics’ Anti-inflammatory facial serum (https://www.laurelskin.com/product/serum-anti-inflammatory/)
– Apple Pie = Apple fruit extract in One Love Organics’ Easy Does It cleanser (http://shop.oneloveorganics.com/products/easy-does-it)
– Pumpkin Pie = Pumpkin seed oil in Maya Chia’s Revitalizer body oil (http://mayachia.com/product/the-revitalizer-beautifying-supercritical-body-oil/)
– Marshmallows on Sweet Potatoes = Marshmallow root in Weleda products for kids (and grownups!!) (http://usa.weleda.com/our-products/shop/Baby-Derma-White-Mallow-Body-Lotion.aspx)
– Mushrooms in stuffing = mushroom extract in Tata Harper’s Clarifying Moisturizer (http://www.tataharperskincare.com/clarifying-moisturizer)
P.S. We wish a healthy, safe, and peaceful holiday to you and yours, but also want to say that the irony of this celebration cannot go unmentioned. We stand with our fellow citizens at Standing Rock and encourage you to support them in any way you feel comfortable doing so.
P.P.S. You might have noticed we’ve been quiet on the blog since the election. While this is not a forum where we choose to discuss politics often, the human rights issues that face our country also cannot go unmentioned today. Please read, volunteer, call, protest, and donate as you see fit. Here’s a great resource:
