Soap, shampoo, conditioner, wash cloth, towel, and you’re just about ready to turn on the water and hop into the shower. Before you do, though, get out that skin brush and give yourself a once-over, because it only takes a minute to detox for the day.

It’s too bad that Labor Day signifies the end of summer, because even though we get shorter days and longer nights, the weather tends to be as pleasant as it gets all year. But once the grills are put away and the kids are sent back to school, it’s time for the fall routine to begin.

I looked in the mirror this morning and my face was looking like winter. Winter is over, Spring is here, and my skin needs to look new and fresh and rosy.

In my last blog post, we talked about coconut oil. Now I want to give you a favorite recipe of mine - Relax & Unwind - and show you how to blend it, so you can make your own personal combination.
