Three Steps to Smooth, Soft, Touchable Arms and Legs
Today I have a quick tip for you - my three steps to smooth soft skin on your arms and legs - AND you can do this easily and at home with all-natural, chemical-free, hormone-friendly products.
The 3 steps that will transform your skin
Step 1: Exfoliate
This will remove the layer of dead skin cells on the surface. If you don't do this, your moisturizer can't penetrate and do its job.
I have two methods for you (watch the video for more details)
#1: Use a wet washcloth - pour body oil onto it - and scrub your wet arms and legs with it in the bath or shower
#2: Use a body scrub. In the video I explain how to make your own or find my favorite
Step 2: Moisturize Deeply
After exfoliation - while your skin is STILL WET - apply a body oil. In the video I mention lots of my faves. Then pat or air dry.
As for why an herbalist like me is even talking about skin care...
#1 - I like to help you celebrate your over-50 fabulousness
#2 - Using skin care that doesn't contain hormone-disrupting chemicals is an important part of the hormone-friendly lifestyle that help your body balance hormones naturally.
And bonus - it'll help your herbal remedies for menopause (my specialty) to work even better. Check out my free resources so I can help you learn to start balancing your hormones naturally right now.

Step 3: Seal in Moisture
After the body oil, while your skin is still damp, apply shea butter or a rich body cream. (Watch the video for tips on how to use the shea butter.)
