Yum – Ginger Souffle sounds already delicious and my skin is definitely enjoying the treat every time I use Origins ginger body wash and creme. Both the wash and the souffle have a creamy soothing texture with a crispy- fresh ginger and citrus scent. You probably figured that I have a love for Ginger, hence the name for this blog. Here is why: ginger is anti-inflammatory (=anti breakouts), it is also anti-bacterial (fabulous remedy for a sore-throat), it stimulates the metabolism and it contains enzymes that help fight free radicals. Other ingredients include Grape Seed Oil, Olive Oil, and Apricot Kernel Oil to soothe and nourish the skin as well as Lime and Bergamot essential oils to energize and calm.



I discovered these soap bars from Southampton Soap Company in a tiny book store in Sag Harbor, NY and immediately fell in love with them. Their soaps are all hand-made and 100% natural. My absolute favorite this summer is Seaside Spa which is made out of water from the Atlantic ocean, sea clay which helps remove dirt and toxins and sea algea which has antioxidant and nourishing properties. Use it under the shower after a day on the beach and you actually feel like you’ve just been to the spa!

Check out their website for local stores in the New York area. If you’re not in NY, you can buy these soaps on Etsy!



Do you often have dry skin on your legs after shaving?

Shaving gels that foam are fun, but they contain lots of bad stuff like Sodium Laureth Sulphate which is actually a skin irritant and carcinogenic. So when it comes to shaving sensitive skin and your most intimate area, would you really like to get in contact with cancer causing ingredients? Me neither … Kiss My Face Cool Mint shave cream works really well without foaming and it has a super nice fresh scent. It contains only natural ingredients like arnica, aloe vera, coconut and olive oils, and  sage which all help to make my skin feel moisturized and incredibly soft after shaving. I took me some time to get used to shaving without a thick layer of foam, but now I absolutely prefer it!

What shaving lotion are you using?
