From the Inside Out: Eating to Improve Your Skin (Recipe: Kale Salad with Sunflower Seeds)

Karen's kale salad

I’d like you to meet my friend Karen.  I asked her to do write my blog today because she has some great ideas about eating for healthy skin. Head on over to www.sicilean.com to read more of her work.

Like most women, I’ve gotten a lot of advice, over the years, about skin care. This advice came from my mom, my dermatologist, my girlfriends, the salesperson at the health food store, even infomercials (I’m not too proud to admit it!) and almost all of it focused on what to put onto my skin.

Soap Conference Day 3

 

My last email to my friends about the conference.
Hi Everyone,

I have mixed feelings. I’m sad to leave but anxious to get home. More workshops today, fun stuff like advanced swirling and making milk soaps, and then some more technical/chemical stuff (stop rolling your eyes, I will spare you the details)  By far the best part of the past few days are the new friendships I have made and the old friends I have been able to catch up with since the last conference. It’s amazing to me how well we remember each other even though it has been a year since we have been together. For that I thank Facebook and Twitter. I do love modern technology, even though I struggle with it occasionally. (more…)
