The trees by my market have these little pods on them that look like paper lanterns. I like how they sway in the wind. "Dry dust of blossoms, dim and gray,
lost on the wind?..."
I’ve been unable to stop thinking about California lately. Ever since my last trip I’ve been dreaming of returning. I think it’s the warm but dry climate. I hate humidity, but in the dry air I thrive. I’ve also noticed that all of my favorite clothing is designed and made in California, and I think that’s a sign too. Really hoping to make a trip happen soon.
This air can wreak havoc on both our bodies and homes. We all seem to take the comfort of our air for granted, but why don’t we take that comfort to new heights? Check out our whole house humidifiers available! Link in bio. #humidifier#dryair#hvac#augustahvac
Air quality affects your skin more than you realize.
The #cosmetic industry has made a fortune selling products that promise #anti_aging and moisturized skin. Between over-zealous heating systems during the winter and air conditioning in the summer, we spend a great deal of time in indoor environments that dry out our skin. It is not just #DryAir that has an effect on your skin, #AirPollution can take its toll as well. Instead of investing in expensive #SkinCare regimes that need replacing every few months, obtain these results for your #IndoorAir with a #Venta#Airwasher .
Skin is the largest organ of the body and the natural protective layer is exposed to plenty of irritating factors such as dry air and environmental #pollutants daily. These can leave lasting negative impacts on your skin like increased #wrinkles , a dull and flaky appearance and can even aggravate #acne . Because we spend roughly 90% of our lives indoors, we are exposed to heaters and air conditioners that dry out our skin when inside.
Venta Airwashers alleviate the harsh dryness created by these household appliances. Providing rooms with upwards of 40-55% humidity, the Airwasher is a #DrySkin solution for every season. While the Airwasher hydrates your skin, it is also creating a #CleanAir environment, which is a welcome relief from harsh environmental pollutants.

New product alert! This would be awesome for people who work in offices or travel on planes, or anywhere with recycled air. I find my skin gets so dry in recycled air!
From the company:
Instantly refresh and re-energize your skin anytime with lightweight, oil-free, alcohol-free Hydrating Facial Serum Mist, while simultaneously treating your complexion to long-term anti-aging benefits. This fine, quick drying mist can be spritzed under or over your makeup and is packed with hydrating ingredients like Apple and Kale extract to soothe, moisturize, and help boost skin’s radiance. Powerful Hydromanil helps to pull moisture into skin and lock it in for lasting skin benefits.
Hydration facials are exactly what they sound like. The facial adds moisture to your skin and locks it in, eliminating dry spots and bringing that nice supple look back to your skin. When you skin drys out it has a tendency to create excess oil, and disrupts the balance in your skin. Being in Utah, these facials are a must to combat our dry air.
My two favorite products to combat all that dry skin from our never ending winter! Yes it is April but we still are having those cold days that make your skin dry out.
Lavender lotion on my legs and hands everyday. I have been using the rose ointment on a dry patch of skin that is caused by my mousepad at work. After being consistent with applying the ointment my little patch of dry skin is all gone😉.
April 4th: Hydration is extremely important for the overall health of the body and athletic performance. The easiest way initiate a shift in diet and lifestyle is to become aware of your water intake and stay hydrated! Maybe start your day with a glass of water with a lemon in it! 🍋How much water have you consumed today?
Your body needs water for digestion, regulating temperature, cellular communication and all metabolic functions. Water constantly moves through your cells and your body parts have different water content.
Blood is approximately 93% water, muscle is about 73% water and body fat 10%.
Body water absorbs heat from your muscles and sweat dissipates heat. Sweat keeps you from overheating during exercise and in hot environments.
When you sweat you lose water from inside and outside your cells. The water outside the cells is rich in sodium, and electrolyte that works in balance with potassium. Potassium is an electrolyte inside the cells. Sweat contains about 7x more sodium than potassium. Sodium is the most important electrolyte to replace during extended exercise. 💦
Dehydration can hinder mental and athletic performance. Water can reduce constipation and help with UTIs. Increased water improves weight loss, removes toxins, improves skin tone, muscle performance, memory and mental clarity.
Drink in response to your thirst. If your lips are chapped, you’re already dehydrated 😱. If your urine is scanty, dark and smells, drink more. If you have not urinated during your work day 8-3 you’re severely dehydrated. Please don’t drink water out of single use plastic. It’s equally important to take care of our planet as it is our individual body. 🌏Now go drink a glass of water! If you want a pure electrolyte powder without all the fillers and flavors that are full of questionable proprietary ingredients buy some YogaLyte at the studio! Stay hydrated! @yogalyte #hydration#stayhydrated#electrolytes#water#highelevation#mountainlife#dryair#drinkmore#hydrate ! #nomoreplastic#saynotosingleuseplastic#protectouroceans#cleanwater

Love may spring eternal, but actual SPRING is nowhere to be found!! 😭 It is so cold out there!!!

Here's another airplane tip: every hour you are in the air, mix together the following ingredients and apply the mixture to your face:
1. Colloidal silver hydrosol (I like Argentum 23)
2. Rose or lavender hydrosol
3. Argan or jojoba oil
This combination provides anti-microbial protection from the colloidal silver, hydration from the rose or lavender hydrosol, and the oil will lock in the moisture preventing moisture evaporation. If you follow this routine every hour, you skin won't get dry and you won't break out!
