The Oil Boom: A Secret to Smoother Skin

Next Tribe face oil for smoother skin

“Oil me!” was what the Tin Man squeaked out in The Wizard of Oz, and when Dorothy and The Scarecrow administered a few drops, it worked like magic, right?

I took some time to get on board with this skin oil trend, but I have to admit that the Tin Man was onto something.

For years, I was afraid to use oils on my skin, especially my face, thinking (wrongly) that they would make me greasy, slimy, and possibly pimply. Now, I live for oils, slathering on products balanced with multiple wellness benefits, a veritable A to Z ingredient list from Argan to Zea Mays (corn) oils. My body loves me for it. My skin looks and feels smoother, less lined, and glow-ier. Oils have become my fountain of youth as my aging skin produces less natural lubrication.

While I’ve found that coconut oil is fine as a daily go-to, I’ve become devoted to Angela Shore’s divine oils from her lovely Jiva-Apoha (or “soul-healing”) collection. Not only does her Sundara face oil make me feel (dare I say, look?) younger, but it smells delightful, imbued with rose, lavender, chamomile and jasmine, among other essential oils.

At $110 for a 15ml bottle, it certainly isn’t inexpensive, but it’s made with the highest quality ingredients, minimizes and fights lines, improves skin tone and texture, and you only need a tiny bit at a time. Plus Angela is a modern day shaman, an Ayurvedic healer with a deep understanding of holistic wellness; this oil is worth it.

The Brilliance of One-Piece Yoga Gear

And you thought onesies were just for babies!

That all-in-one fashion garment is baaaaack — and in a big way. It may seem like a redux of that 80s catsuit (remember, worn with heels and maybe a boxy man’s style jacket with sleeves pushed up?). Its return is a hot trend for workout rats, especially those hitting the yoga mat.

New Movie We Love: “Finding Your Feet”

The movie Finding Your Feet isn’t going to shock or surprise you. Here’s the plot: Somewhat stuffy midlife woman discovers husband is having an affair and embarks on new life that loosens her up. You’ve probably seen the same plot play out once, twice, three times as you sat in the dark with a small sack of popcorn on your lap.
