Natural skin care solutions for San Miguel skin!
By Sunne Justice
The great thing about the skincare business is that everyone in the world has skin. Yet the variety and abundance of unhealthy, chemically derived skincare products that flood our lives is insane! Let’s simplify things and get healthy and skin conscious.

Here is my one simple rule for skincare… don’t put it on your skin if you would not put it in your mouth and eat it. That’s it in a nutshell. It can’t get much more simple than that. Our skin is the largest organ of our body, but most folks treat it like a coating or a Formica finish and rub it with all kinds of chemicals. Understanding that your skin is truly a remarkable and resilient organ that clothes our inner being, changes your point of view about skincare.
During my 13 years as Burt’s Bees Chief Pollinator, I traveled extensively teaching people all over the world about natural skin care and earth-friendly skin care. It’s important to realize that the personal care industry is one of the biggest polluters on the planet when you consider how many chemicals you wash down the drain each day with shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, facial cleansers, hair color, bubble bath and the list goes on. So it is important to take care of both your skin and Mother Earth at the same time. And it’s easy, if you just know what to use and how to use it. For example organic apple cider vinegar is one of the best skin toners you can use. Or maybe you have tried using coarse sugar as an exfoliant for your body. It’s great to know that Mother Nature provides and Moonrise Health supplies!!
I now truly know what dry as a bone feels like!! Last year was my first San Miguel’s dry season…whoa! And then add the effects of hard water and hard sun; it’s a major challenge to everyone’s skin and hair. I have discovered many natural solutions to soothe and nourish aging, dry skin in many different climates, like wonderful carrot seed oil, a major healer for skin aged by sun exposure. It is totally possible to keep your skin, your hair, lips, hands and feet moisturized, soft and protected during this intense dry season and in every kind of weather. You just have to understand the basics of proper skincare, the advantages of using natural products and the challenges chemicals present to your skin.
The great thing about skin is it really loves you, the person it protects and does its best to constantly heal and rejuvenate itself. All it asks is for you to give it some healthy food, instead of some nasty chemicals. Your skin just wants a healthy diet like the rest of your body.
I look forward to you joining me at Moonrise Health. We will have a great time demystifying face care and teaching men and women of all ages how to care for their body skin naturally. You might even get to eat your skincare!!!
