My constant beauty travel companion is adara! $12. It comes in Lavender, Jasmine, Peach, Green Tea, Rose and Unscented. It's my work-horse beauty product that is super multi-functional and effective. I'm ready to pack my bags again this weekend to head to NY in search of new brands for our customers. adara always goes in my carry on bag! The travel size is TSA approved so no worries about them tossing it in the trash during security check through. What do I use it for? Everything! I use it to wash my face (without water), remove my eye makeup, moisturize my face and body, repair my cuticles, heal my dry lips overnight, tame hair fly aways, to relax in a hot, fragrant oil bath at night and more! While I love choosing from an array of beauty products, carry-on travel these days can be challenging for the beauty-junkie. I can always rely on adara to keep my skin healthy, clear and glowing while I'm away. And it makes me feel great knowing that I'm putting on my skin 99.9% organic, fair trade coconut oil!

We are obsessed with the multiple powers of adara. I use it nightly on my face....a little goes a long way!

The bonus is that it is natural, organic, fair trade, PEG free, Paraben free and more! I'll be addicted to the healing powers of this product for the rest of my life.
Are you afraid to put oil on your face? Don't be!!! European women have known the power of face oils for centuries. I literally slather this oil on my face, neck and chest at night. The gorgeous aromas lull me to sleep! I have very oil skin. Normally around 10:00 in the morning I have a shiny face. When I use adara the night before my face stays matte all day long. Why? Because my skin is getting the natural hydration it needs so my body doesn't over-produce oil during the next day.
Also, the natural anti-bacterial powers of coconut oil help heal and prevent pimples. The natural anti-inflammatory powers help get rid of redness...and of course the hydrating powers help firm skin! It's a work-horse!
Added benefits are that you can use it for conditioning hair treatments, to tame fly aways, as a massage oil, as a bath oil and of course a body oil.
Remember that untainted coconut oil will solidify in colder temperatures. Simply run under hot tap water to liquify. adara likes warmth like we do!

After going off the pill a couple months ago to try and get pregnant I thought my skin would remain having its occasional breakout, but normal skin tone. Boy, was I wrong. Initially when speaking to friends who'd gone through skin changes due to fluctuation of hormones I thought I was lucky and had somehow bypassed all the acne and oily skin that typically occurs when you go off the pill. Literally one day I was talking about how my skin had remained the same and the next it was like a war had broke out on my face with no hope of surrender. Washing my face became a nightmare, instead of the feeling of smooth skin, it was replaced with rough skin texture and a nagging need to want to start popping blackheads every night. Gross, I know.
When you get pregnant you need to be wary of what skincare ingredients you can safely put on your skin. Your normal routine of highly active ingredients might now be a no-no for the next nine months. Because my husband and I have decided to wait a few months until my hormones level out before we start trying I gave myself the green light and recently purchased some pimple fighting products from one of the leaders in skincare, Peter Thomas Roth. Whether you're experiencing your own battle with acne congestion due to going off the pill or problematic skin in general, here are a few tried and tested suggestions:
Whether you have hormonal skin or not, everybody and I mean everybody can see results when using a Clarisonic. I don't care what one you choose to invest in, the power of sonic cleansing speaks for itself in the thousands of lives it has changed. With special brush heads that work together with gentle vibration to remove blackheads, gently and effectively exfoliate the skin, as well as improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles; this is a cleansing device whose results speak for themselves. Washing your face with your hands will be thought of as the dark ages in no time at all.
Peter Thomas Roth's Beta Hydroxy Acid 2% Acne Wash sounds like it will be very drying and cause cracked lips and nose but that couldn't be further from the truth. Gentle yet very effective, this oil free acne wash gives a deep cleanse while 2% salicylic acid helps to loosen sebum, clear pores and prevent future breakouts.
I love a great peel but some can strip the skin to harshly which can then lead to other problems. Peter Thomas Roth's Gentle Correction Pads are a favorite of mine (and Allure magazine) as they won 'Best Peel' in their Best of Beauty awards. With a peach bellini scent, regular use of these exfoliating pads will reduce the appearance of fine lines, clear blackheads and refine pores. I like to them once a week!
A great night treatment is essential to keep all the good work going while you're getting your beauty sleep. Peter Thomas Roth's Acne Spot and Area Treatment is a maximum strength, yet non-drying topical treatment that works quickly on a single blemish or can be used on larger problematic areas to fight present and future breakouts. You could use it during the day but I don't really like to because it does have a sulfur like smell that can be noticed if you get to close to people.
I hope these pimple fighters work for you as well as they worked for me. Remember, if you're pregnant you should consult your physician prior to selecting new skincare products!Read More »

Shop Clark's Botanicals here.
Hailed by celebrities and beauty mags alike, Clark's Botanicals has established itself as a plant-based skincare line, specializing in rebalancing the skin regardless of type. What's maybe even more fascinating than the results you'll see using their product, is the story of how the company came to be.
In the summer of 2002, founder Francesco Clark (pictured) suffered a crippling spinal cord injury in a swimming pool accident. Shortly after losing his ability to walk, Clark discovered he had also lost his ability to sweat, leading to clogged pores and chronic breakouts.
Enter Francesco's father, Dr. Harold Clark. Trained in both traditional Western medicine and homeopathy, Dr. Clark worked with his son to develop botanically-based formulas that effectively rebalanced his skin - clearing it up entirely. Word got around about their plant-based cure, and in 2005 (three years after Francesco's accident) Clark's Botanicals was launched.
More than 1,600 SELF Magazine readers tested 1,505 new beauty products launched this year, and the results are in! Check out the b-glowing.com brand products that won 2013 Healthy Beauty Awards!
