Inquires about my skincare have led me to this post. I’m no beauty maven. I have spent a LOT of time outdoors in my life. I was raised in the 70's and 80's when sun damage was not much of a concern and sunscreen was only used to prevent sunburn those first few days at the neighborhood pool.
I spent my 20's outside in the mountains in Jackson Hole at elevation all day every day. Literally.
I LOVE sunshine. It is our number one source of Vitamin D and so good for the soul. I have also spent as many hours as possible in the intensely salty ocean waters surfing. My days of daily surfing were primarily along the Los Angeles coastline, where the oceans are unfortunately far from being free of toxins. I am also fair, and while I do not burn easily, my skin tone is more subject to damage than others.
Essentially, my skin has taken a beating. It is far from flawless. But at least I have lived! I have certainly used skincare and cosmetics with known toxins and without. Mostly without for the last couple decades. I do not use Botox or related, have never had any peels or related, nor acupuncture or whatever else exists out there to release wrinkles. And honestly, have only experienced two professional facials in my entire life. Currently, I only use a few very simple 100% ‘of the earth’ products that also happen to be very affordable. Happy to share.
My #1's toward skin health are: Nutrition, Hydration, Exercise, Sleep, several modalities toward Stress Reduction, and Self-Care. Ask me about these basics toward skin health and overall wellness.
In 2013, as I first began my switch from living and breathing wellness to teaching, coaching and consulting within wellness, I spent some time with the owner of The Herbal Face Food learning about his product and working for him: hands-on producing the product all the way to shipping it out the door. I know his personal story and what motivated him to create The Herbal Face Food. I can also share every single ingredient as well as where they are sourced.
I first tried the introductory regular strength Herbal Face Food serum and after using one 1 oz bottle...
I watched the sun damage on the bridge of my nose where my sunglasses sit DISAPPEAR.
I thought I would never get rid of that tan line! Friends at my yoga studio in Santa Monica commented that my skin looked different – and great. I only used one more 1 oz bottle and then with an unexpected move across the country due to a broken leg, it kinda just fell off my radar. Years later, summer 2017, I had a couple of sun spots spring up while living back at high elevation and decided to give it another test drive. I wanted to use it consistently for 4-6 months to see what would happen. Result: one of the spots is completely gone and the other is continually fading.
I don’t know about you, but for me, seeing is believing. I would personally never endorse a product I have not first used for a noteworthy length of time. As I mentioned, there are only a few skin care items on my list – ask me - and I am very happy with the quality and simplicity. The results, along with the fact that it is so clean that it is truly edible, speak volumes. Yes, you can actually ingest this product. My only warning is that it can sting especially the first few times you use it. There are three different strengths. I suggest you approach your spice level like ordering spicy food.
The Herbal Face Food line has expanded to include Herbal Face Cleansing Lotion and Herbal Body Food. Contact me with any questions. Take care of yourself, live large, and find your freedom. -Joni
