Essentials for beautiful skin

Keep your skin looking youthful and vibrant this fall with my easy regimen that nourishes and promotes skin health.

For years, I’ve enjoyed my morning and evening time of caring for my skin.

I love my routine and each day I notice the benefits. In fact,  beauty is one of my three approaches to well-being. Here are my “beauty” beneficial essentials that I find to be youth-enhancing year round!


Exfoliating can improve the results of your skin care routine and help rejuvenate your skin.  Some of the benefits include: softer silky skin, a brighter complexion, improvement of skin tone, and removal of dead, dull skin cells.


Cleansing helps minimize pore size, leaving skin looking clearer and fresher.  It also removes excess oil and impurities to help improve skin health and radiance.


Toning will remove any remaining bits of oil, dirt and debris left behind by the cleanser. More importantly, toning will soothe, nourish and hydrate the skin while restoring its delicate pH balance.


Moisturizing is awesome for the face and body! Our bodies are 75 percent water, which helps maintain body temperature and more. Spending time and care moisturizing your face and body will keep them hydrated and healthy for many years to come!

Remember, beauty truly does start from the inside out, so fuel-up wisely to maintain a healthy glow. For example, sweet potatoes can  promote glowing gorgeous skin. They are loaded with Vitamins A, C, and E, which can help improve the look of your skin.

I hope you find my beneficial essentials helpful and I encourage you to incorporate them into your autumn skin care routine!
