DIY Coconut Scrub

Sandal season may be far in the distance for those on the East Coast—unless you have a resort vacation on the horizon—but our feet are always in need of some restoration and hydration. Whether you’ve had a long day at the office or you’re trying to break in a new pair of heels, there is nothing a DIY at-home foot scrub can’t fix.  

 Try the below recipe for a luxurious, at-home foot treatment from celebrity manicurist and owner of As “U” Wish Nail Spa, Skyy Hadley, and your feet will feel good as new in no time! Skyy Hadley’s Recipe for the Ultimate Hydrating Coconut Scrub: ·      

   Begin by muddling a few fresh mint leaves in an empty jar to release their natural essential oils. This will help you relax while providing hydration. ·      

   Warm up some coconut oil and pour into the jar until it is halfway full. ·    
     Add 2 tablespoons of honey and mix in 1 tablespoon of sugar until the sugar is completely immersed in the oil mixture. ·   

      Take a couple spoonfuls of the scrub and work into your legs and feet to fully exfoliate, sloughing away dead skin and smoothing out calluses, cracked heels and rough spots. ·       
  The coconut oil will provide a great amount of moisture, leaving skin feeling smooth and supple. ·
         Also, be sure to rub on toe nail beds and in between toes to prevent nail infections and fungus (as coconut oil contains anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties).  ·       

  Repeat 1-2 times per week for a moisturizing and revitalizing at-home spa treatment. -

Is Mixing Skin-Care Products Dangerous?

Could your daily beauty routine be putting your skin at risk? Find out which ingredients you should never combine to avoid problems down the road.
Every dermatologist and skin-care professional has their own opinion when it comes to combining ingredients. Some doctors say strong ingredients should never be mixed together and should be used solely on their own, while others disagree, saying it’s safe to use them together as long as they’re applied at different times of the day. Before you layer product on top of product, seek out the advice of your dermatologist or plastic surgeon to reduce your risk of irritation. 
Don’t mix vitamin C with:
1. Alphahydroxy Acids (AHAs): Overloading your skin with too many acid based-ingredients (both vitamin C and AHAs are acid-based) increases your chances of redness, peeling and irritation. “Some AHAs even come with instructions to wash it off after a certain amount of time so that the skin can accommodate and tolerate it,” says Miami dermatologist Loretta Ciraldo, MD.
2. Copper Peptides: Copper peptides help to encourage elastin and collagen formation, making it necessary for wound healing. But when used with vitamin C, the effects of each are cancelled out, rendering the benefits useless.
3. Retinol: Many experts will say that super-strength concentrations of vitamin C and retinol shouldn’t be applied to the skin together, or only with extreme caution, since both are very powerful and can cause the skin to become dry. However, there are some topical products that contain both ingredients, but chances are they contain low concentrations of each, making them safe to use. 
Don’t mix retinol with...
1. Benzoyl Peroxide: Retinol and benzoyl peroxide can ward off acne and prevent the formation of new blemishes, but when used simultaneously, they can counteract each other’s benefits. “Both are drying, exfoliating, peeling agents, and when they’re mixed together, they can cause excessive peeling, unwanted pigment, lasting redness and even blistering and scarring,” explains Seattle dermatologist Jennifer Reichel, MD.
2. AHAs: Both retinol and AHAs can help to generate new collagen, but be careful when using them together. “It’s okay to use both as long as you are not too sensitive to the combination,” says Dr. Ciraldo. “Most women with sensitive skin need to alternate, applying the AHA in the morning and retinol at night for the first few weeks so a tolerance can be built.” If you’re using either a retinoid or AHA, it’s essential to use a daily sunscreen as well, since both cause UV sensitivity.

5 Tips for Handling Post-Holiday Blues Naturally

After the holiday, people often feel like the blues settle in with the cold winter weather. Dr. Frank King offers helpful tips to naturally restore and continue good cheer, all year.

5 Tips for Handling Post-Holiday Blues Naturally
Asheville, NC, January 08, 2015 --( Once again, the holidays have wound down and winter is upon us. Too often, people feel unhappy following the holidays. The child inside may whine, “I didn’t get what I wanted, the parties weren’t fun, being with relatives is hard, and now I have all these bills to pay. Plus, taxes are looming, and what about that fine for not signing up for health care?”

Dr. Frank King, a doctor of naturopathy and chiropractic with nearly 40 years’ experience in natural healing, offers help. He explains that unrealistic holiday expectations often lead to emotional letdowns and even physical ailments. Since the holidays coincide with wintertime, the extra stresses of travel, late nights with parties and feasting, combined with potential reductions in immune system functioning, often result in maladies such as head-colds, sleeplessness, digestive upsets, and stress headaches.

In addition, many suffer from annual seasonal affective disorder (SAD), feeling gloomy as the days grow longer and darker. Lack of sunlight negatively affects SAD patients’ biorhythms and biochemistry, and their mental and even physical health suffers.

Dr. King, author of The Healing Revolution, offers these five tips to combat the post-holiday blues naturally:

1. Move. Try to get outside for natural sunlight each day. Even better, sidetrack isolation by joining others for exercise or a walk. Not only will the exercise releases endorphins that help you feel better, but sunlight also helps your body make melatonin, a hormone needed for proper circadian rhythm and sleep. Investigate whether or not a full-spectrum light might be helpful.

2. Sleep. If you have difficulty sleeping six or more hours per night, limit your on-screen time before bed. Keep electronics out of your bedroom – create a “sleep sanctuary,” and play relaxing music at night to help your mind wind down. Limit or eliminate all caffeine, including chocolate.

3. Nourish. Include nutritious, organic foods in your diet that contain ample amounts of the vitamin B complex, Vitamins C and D, and essential fatty acids. For example, eat foods such as flax seed oil, leafy greens, raw nuts, green peas, lentils, eggs, sweet potatoes, small amounts of healthy lean meat, and salmon. Consider supplements to ensure a steady supply of all essential nutrients.

4. Say “No” to most sweets. Avoid sugar, which is addictive and hides in many foods, including salad dressings, ketchup, alcohol, sodas, and fruit juices. Sugar causes blood sugar spikes and crashes that can lead to mood swings and yeast overgrowth. Artificial sweeteners are not the answer, either. Researchers link artificial sweeteners to adverse brain function. When you crave a sweet, replace unhealthy choices with a piece of fresh fruit.

5. Consider homeopathy. Homeopathic medicine is affordable, safe, natural medicine that has been used worldwide for more than 200 years, and can help with all of the above suggestions.

King should know. Twenty-five years ago, he founded a homeopathic manufacturing company in North Carolina. He was inspired to begin the venture after helping hundreds of patients regain their health after they had previously found no relief with conventional medicine.

“There’s no need to suffer,” King states. “Homeopathic medicine offers help for everything from relieving pain to correcting indigestion, and improving sleep to enhancing mood.”

Through his company, King Bio (, Dr. King has formulated 500 natural medicines.

“Homeopathy is what I call the ‘perfect medicine,’” King says. “It’s safe for all ages, has no known negative side effects, no contraindications, is non-habit forming, and has no overdose toxicity. It’s all pluses, and no minuses.”

Dr. Frank King is the founder and director of King Bio, an FDA-registered homeopathic manufacturing company dedicated to the production of safe, natural medicines without negative side effects. Dr. King is committed to empowering people by sharing his knowledge. His book, The Healing Revolution, offers numerous life-changing tips, including easy hands-on techniques anyone can learn, to achieve optimal health, happiness, and success.

Shea Butter

Shea Butter is naturally rich in Vitamins A, E, and F, as well as a number of other vitamins and minerals. Vitamins A and E help to soothe, hydrate, and balance the skin. They also provide skin collagen which assists with wrinkles and other signs of aging. Vitamin F contains essential fatty acids, and helps protect and revitalize damaged skin and hair. Shea Butter is an intense moisturizer for dry skin, and is a wonderful product for revitalizing dull or dry skin on the body or scalp. In addition, Shea Butter offers a low level of UV protection (approximately SPF-6), and may be incorporated into natural sunscreen recipes because of its soothing nature, anti-inflammatory and rejuvenating effects.
