As the weather warms up so does a desire to streamline our beauty and skincare routines. The simpler, the better, yes? Well, it can’t get any simpler OR better than this latest Chalkboard Mag advice. In our opinion, taking a cure from nature is always a safe bet.

Honey is so much more than just sugar, and the wide-reaching benefits of honey prove it. Everything about this golden goop boosts beauty, both internally and externally. We’re not ready to try the bee sting facial just yet (yes, that’s a real thing), but we’re more than ready to use honey – a potent antibacterial and anti-inflammatory – for these three simple beauty ideas to get our skin purified, plumped and glowing!

Tan skin can sometimes feel like a right of passage into summer. Having that radiant glow is all about long beach days, late bonfire nights and weekend travels to be cherished for a lifetime.

Unfortunately, what doesn’t often get invited along for those memories is proper skin care. Whether we’re beckoning the rays with baby oil (I’m totally guilty of doing that in the past) or just neglecting any coverage at all, it’s damage to our body’s largest organ. Luckily, over the years, experts have developed innovative and completely natural products to keep us healthy and lustrous — without the danger of long-lasting repercussions.

In spite of what the cozy sweaters, knit beanies, and insulating footwear do for the rest of our bodies, no matter what winter always seems to leave our hands pretty worse for wear.

Maybe it’s because we’re glued to our phones instead of our mittens, or with all the baking (or germs!) going around we’re more apt to wash our hands and rub them dry. Whatever the case, we thought it’d be helpful to run to the drugstore and hit a few online retailers for you testing out which hand creams truly salve  the day. Curious? Keep reading!

We’re back again with more helpful, natural health info from Chalkboard Mag. Today they’re sharing what it looks like to rummage in the fridge for more than just food, but healthy, healing ingredients for the outside of your body, too. 

JUST LIKE the food we eat, when it comes to our skin, we like to keep things simple. When we’re buying off the shelves, our motto is “the less ingredients the better.” And when we DIY it up, our step-by-step is usually short-and-sweet (the last thing we want after a long day is to spend hours on what should be self-care!).

Thanks to Deborah at Hello Natural, we’ve found the piece-de-resistance of DIY skin care – or should we say, ten of them. These all-natural, one-ingredient wonders prove that less is more, and use things you probably already have in your pantry or fridge …

Full disclosure: Seeing as how there’s always something new popping up in the beauty industry, it takes a lot for us to stop and really take notice. While we’ve known for awhile now about the amazing benefits behind fermented foods and teas, (kombucha, anyone?)  we were genuinely impressed to meet Carla Oates of The Beauty Chef and to learn about her inventive line of fermented skincare products.

We know what you’re thinking. So continue reading to learn more about Carla and her inspiring twist on developing this healthy kind of beauty … the kind where you glow from the inside out!
