Botanical Skin Care
Friday, 8 November 6pm – 8:30pm
Saturday, 9 November, 9:30am – 1:30pm
Botanical skin care – Naturally! A high percentage of what we put on our skin goes directly into the bloodstream. Why use products with synthetic colors or scents, cancer promoting and hormone disrupting ingredients? Even natural ingredients can be inferior quality. What does “natural” on a label even mean? The intention of this workshop is to build our consciousness and become aware of what we put on our body. We’ll unpack what makes up skin care products, the healthful ingredients and the ones we just don’t want to use and why, and begin a journey towards a healthier, more beautiful you.
While this workshop is for people of all ages, there will be a focus on older skin. I’m always told I look younger than I am – I’ll be 60 in April! Part of that is genetics, although what I’ve used for my skin care over the decades has played a very big part in my youthful appearance. Come to the workshop and learn my secrets! I’ll take the guesswork out of the best regime for taking care of YOUR skin. Feel confident in the skin you’re in!
An important aspect of having beautiful skin is emotional/spiritual. Beyond skin care products, we’ll chat about the importance of hydration, stress relief with yoga/exercise, meditation, and sometimes talking things out with a trusted friend or professional.
Layering skin care is so important to beautiful, healthy skin. The workshop will include these beautifying skin products that will be made during the workshop.
