For most of my life, if you had asked me to talk about skin, I would’ve not only said no, but it would’ve made me feel pretty awful too. I spent a couple decades wrangling around with my skin—and honestly, for most of that time I had clear skin (or clear-ish) because I was medicating it. It was still a pain in terms of texture, dryness, oily-ness… and just blah-ness.
To be truthful, I’d rather not admit all that—I’d like to just forget about it. But I do believe that all “struggles” we encounter contribute to making us who we are. I also know how it feels to be frustrated about skin appearance… so I want to share what I know. I’m going to do a series of videos, and break it down into little topics and ideas.
Here’s the first one—-The Fundamentals
What do you think? Are you into skincare (and natural skincare)?
Do you have skin frustrations? How about melasma?
Seriously, if you have melasma, let’s chat. It’s hands down the most frustrating thing I’ve encountered with my health—and I’m vain enough to admit that it concerns me more than anything going on inside my body (although I know it starts inside).
Here’s the link to Laury’s recipe for Body Butter!

News/Notes: I went to the Getty Villa today. I also sat on a oceanside deck with drinks (mine had pineapple juice and jalapeno in it!), and took a walk down to muscle beach and the pier. Yep, good second date.
Also, I tried slacklining last night (briefly). It is SO difficult… so, I promptly ordered a slackline, and plan to go to the beach to use it everyday until I don’t look like a drunk tightrope walker on it. I’ll embed a video below that shows the slackline setup in Santa Monica and what it is—note, I am not aiming to do tricks (right away). I’d just like to be able to walk on it. This video is kinda long, but just watch for a few seconds to see what it is (and where I live!).
Here are a couple things I made for my client this weekend…
Anyway… my life revolves around food, whether it’s mine or for my client. I’m loving the personal chef thing, even though it literally caused my morning to move forward at a near sprint today. I had to get it done before the afternoon!
Side note: I really do believe that eating food like this of the best quality contributes to clear beautiful skin. It has to, and speaking from experience, it makes a difference for me.
And now, I have to go get some work done so I can play more tomorrow…
