Ok, Bare Babes. FINALLY the post you've all been waiting for and asking for is here. We wanted to bring you the best information, so in addition to our own personal research and experiences, we worked with a licensed esthetician on this post, Tessa (that beauty with the glowing skin pictured above). Our friend and trusted skincare guru gives us her product knowledge and suggestions for a routine based on skin types, and we give some of our personal recommendations and favorites!

Because we take a holistic approach to our health, before telling you what products we like to put on our skin, we had to do our due dili...

     Summer is approaching, and it's a time where many of us are traveling. Not only is summer an especially common time to travel, but it’s also swim suit season, so we think now is a really good time to talk about these tips. Of course, these tips are relevant ANY time you travel, because even when you're not planning on showing skin, it's a good practice to maintain a healthy lifestyle all the time.

Can you enjoy that pizza in New York, that wine and cheese plate in California, or that gelato in Italy? OF COURSE. Half of traveling is getting to taste and experience delicious, local food. What you don'...

Ever get a random breakout in between your eyebrows or forehead? What about the cheeks? THE WORST. You may start to notice that you get those after traveling or after a weekend where you ate out more-- both situations where you may have had more “rich” foods. Same applies to when you feel like your skin is more dull, the bags under your eyes are showing a bit more, maybe you have some dark circles or discoloration. What have you been eating and drinking? Have you had enough water, leafy greens, healthy fats, bright fruits and veggies?

Think about when your skin feels amazing, bright, and clear. What has your diet...

It's likely most of the #BareBabes reading this have tried drinking apple cider vinegar, incorporating turmeric or turmeric supplements, or tried adding things like cinnamon, ginger, or cayenne into your diet, because we've all heard about the supposed benefits. It's likely almost all of us have also gone to the local juice shop and ordered a wellness shot (a $3-6 shot, mind you!) when we've felt... let's say... lackluster, under the weather, dull, or just to detoxify or cleanse. Those shots are filled with superfoods that give hope for some kind of miracle to happen. But let's be honest with ourselves....

This post has been a long time coming. Skincare is something we get asked about A LOT. People want to know how they can improve their skin, how to achieve glowing, flawless skin, and how to prevent aging. Most people want to know what to put ON their skin-- what type of natural, non-toxic products we like. Our initial response back is not always what people want to hear...

But, it’s that we first need to understand our skin and what’s going on with it. Then we need to focus on what we are and aren’t eating in order to really make a long-lasting difference. In other words, treat your skin and prevent aging from THE...

Cortisol & Stress

Cortisol seems to be one of those buzzwords these days. People talk about trying to control their stress level in order to minimize the amount of cortisol in their bodies. But what exactly is cortisol? How does it work in the body and what are the effects? What can you do to minimize high levels of cortisol?

I don't know about you, but I  am constantly rattling off my to-do list in my head or stressing that I'll never have enough time to complete it. I have a perfectionist mentality and often think, “What if I fail?” I always feel that I need a plan for the day, week, year, or future. It gets over...

You want to make a change. A positive, healthy lifestyle change. Something permanent that will actually stick. You know what you want to do, you have goals in mind, but you're not sure how to get there or how to even start. Or maybe you have been making progress with your health or lifestyle goals, but you've had trouble with sticking to healthy habits or you keep getting "off track." Maybe you're doing great with developing healthy habits, and you're ready to build upon that, but you're not sure how.

There are some super important things to consider and steps to take when you're ready to hit that reset button an...

Essential oils. Yep, you’ve heard of them. All those crazy hippies are into them. They’re totally a fad.

Except they’re not! In fact, essential oils have been around for almost 5000 years, starting with the Egyptians. There are recipes on ancient Egyptian scrolls dating back to 1500 AD!

Alright we get it. They’re old. Why should we care about them?
Because they will literally change your life if used properly and consistently.

What are essential oils?

Let’s give the brief version of what essential oils actually are. Essential oils are the blood-life of the plant. All parts of plants— shrubs, leaves, flowers, r...

 Ohhh, where to start. All things mental health-related can be so misunderstood… in every way possible. From a personal standpoint, it can be hard to understand why you may be feeling “off.” From a therapeutic standpoint, it can be incredibly difficult to treat due to the subjective and complicated nature of mental illnesses and mood disorders. From a social standpoint, people around you might not know what’s going on, why you may be acting different, or why you are interacting less with your friends and family. Maybe you’ve talked to them about it, but they still don’t understand, or maybe you haven’t talked abo...

+ Our Version of the Bulletproof Coffee Recipe


     At some point, I think we've all heard the popular advice to eat five to six small meals a day. The theory there, is that you're never stuffing yourself, and you're never getting really hungry, so blood sugar levels stay stabilized, and you're constantly "revving up" your metabolism. However, now the opposite is also being preached:  We should have less, but more significantly sized meals, and we should periodically go without eating for an extended amount of time in between; aka intermittent fasting, aka IMF. The idea here is that your digestive syst...
