Prepare Your Skin for Fall - Facial Care
With Labor Day weekend now behind us, Pinterest boards and crafty types alike are looking forward to the coming of fall. As the temperature starts to drop, though, heaters turn on and so begins the season of dry skin. Never fret: we’ve put together a few tips to help keep your beautiful skin happy, hydrated, and nourished all season long. Ensure that your face wash isn’t stripping or drying. That squeaky clean effect may feel great, especially in summer, but it can also strip skin of its natural balance- leaving your skin tight and dry. Try a gentle cleanser that includes moisturizing ingredients like Weleda’s Gentle Cleansing...

A Weleda 4-Step Facial
  Sometimes a little “me time” is the perfect escape from a crazy and hectic day.

Well here is a suggestion straight from Weleda for your very own 4-step facial. And there’s very little time, money or thought required!   End this facial with a cool sensation: run a washcloth through cool water, wring it out, and lay it over your face for five minutes while you rest. Dream of cool water on grand beaches or an open meadow colored by flowers—anywhere that takes you...

Easy Ways to Find Safe Cosmetics
This week’s blog is a guest blog from Sarah Finnie Robinson and our friends over at Practicallygreen.com .  Visit their site to learn more about how you can take simple steps to live a healthy, green lifestyle.  Happy Reading! Feeling parched, chapped, and leathery? You’re not alone. As the weather changes, so does skin. This goes for men, too! Before you moisturize, take a moment to consider what’s in the ointments, creams, and oils you’re slathering on your skin—after all, it is your largest organ.

The Benefits of Baby Massage
 We recently started offering baby massage, and baby massage classes, at our spa in Palisades, NY. I sat down with Patricia Pol, our infant massage therapist and instructor, to ask her about the benefits of massaging your baby. Little did I know there would be so many!

It can also ease congestion and soothe babies with colic. Using long strokes helps with muscle coordination and aids development. It can even help them build up the strength in their neck,...

Teeth Brushing for Tots
We get a lot of questions about our Children’s Tooth Gel. When to use it? Is it safe?

You can do this by first wrapping a piece of wet gauze around your finger and using it on their gums. Then you can move on to a little finger brush with a dot of Children’s Tooth Gel. The parents who call are always happy to hear that our Children’s Tooth Gel is safe to swallow. And kids love the taste. Becket, pictured, the son of our sales manager Gannon, is 14-months-old and, as his mom puts it,...
