Take your stress away with a little calming lavender!


The seasonal transition from summer to fall not only brings cooler weather, but also the hustle and bustle of going back to school or work and the new stresses that come along with them. Wash or soak away your worries with these naturally-based balancing and soothing bath and shower products from Kneipp. Whether you’re looking to cool down after a long day, or begin the morning with a fresh perspective that’s free of anxiety, these holistic products will keep you calm, cool and collected.

I was sent these two products to try out*, and let me tell you – I LOVED trying them out! Both of these products are so relaxing, so heavenly, I think I drained an entire hot water heater in one sitting! This time of year is really stressful for me, and having something like this to look forward to at the end of my day has been so great.

I LOVE lavender, in fact I planted some this year because I love it so much. It’s just so calming to me. Both these products are amazing!

Pour one cap of the salts under running water, and soak for 15-20 minutes to reap the benefits of the lavender.

The Truth About Clear Skin
The truth is, breakouts can affect anyone – not just teens! In fact, adult acne affects 25% of adult men and 50% of adult women at some time.

According to dermatologist Dr. David Bank, the damage of the summer’s rays can cause blockage of the sebaceous oil glands, sometimes translating into breakouts during the fall season. (This makes year-round sunscreen even more important!)
