    Best Clean Skincare Products For Fall
    As in all seasons, we must change our skincare regimen to match with our sudden adjustment to change in other lifestyle areas. As with changing out our denim shorts and tees to jeans, sweat sets and cozy sweaters, we must also trade out a few products or invest in new ones to accommodate the new scene. The similar issue the majority of us seem to face in cooler weather is increasing dryness in our skin, or a lack of summer glow, so without further adieu, these are my top products that I recommend incorporating into your newly adjusted fall routine. EVERYDAY NATURAL'S POMEGRANATE LIP SCRUB This is a MUST year-round for me, really. The feeling of dry lips is always bothersome, so having a lip scrub - not to mention a super yummy lip scrub - on hand is convenient when my lips begin to even hint at making way for new, soft skin. EVERYDAY NATURAL'S POMEGRANATE PLACE LIP BUTTER These two really go hand-in-hand. A genuinely moisturizing “butter” that’s 100% vegan AND petroleum free (yuckyyy) to serve as a barrier and add a hint of gloss, which always makes the lips appear plumper, is a win-win for me. I often wear this "butter" directly over my bare lips, but for a meeting or dinner out, I'll generously dab it over my Everyday Natural's Lip Gloss of choice. EVERYDAY NATURAL'S EVERYDAY NATURAL'S BAOBAB FACE OIL This intriguing exotic blend is thoughtfully infused with the finest Baobab oil, which boasts an incredibly high amount of antioxidants and doesn't break out my super sensitive skin. I love how a little truly goes a long way with this one. When applying it, compared to other face oils, I find myself only using 1-2 small drops, and still getting intense hydration without feeling extra oily. Somehow even with my using it sparingly, I seem to go through these bottles as it's become a staple in my skincare routine. PLANT APOTHECARY’S WASH YOUR FACE: ORGANIC ALOE FACE WASH My skin has a love-hate relationship with every season. In summer, it's usually very oily and loves looking like a bright red tomato if I don't keep up with keeping inflammation at bay. As the weather begins to cool down in fall, it has a tendency to become a little dry in areas. I generally make a switch over to a lighter, way more gentle cleanser to balance my skin's mood. This Aloe Face Wash is non-stripping, has a delicate scent, is fragrance-free, and is suitable for ALL skin types, even the most sensitive. ACURE’S ULTRA HYDRATING GREEN JUICE CLEANSER This creamy supergreens-filled cleanser is just another I couldn't leave out, by one of my favorite brands Acure. It's formulated with holy basil, reishi mushroom, turmeric, kale, spinach, neem, spirulina and more to give a deep, purifying clean like no other. This one is also great for all skin types, but especially sensitive. For me, it hydrates any dryness that may arise, even after it's rinsed off. Read more

    Everyday Minerals Spotlight: Meet Alysse
    Was there a distinct moment when you knew exactly what you wanted to do with your life/career? Not at all. It’s still constantly changing honestly! I have far too many passions and interests - it’s a blessing and a curse. Usually I’m one who finds solace in finite plans, but this year has really shown me (and us all, really) that that just doesn’t exist, does it? It’s forcing me to be more comfortable with uncertainty. Right now, I am just so grateful to have a stable job and my health. What would you say ultimately drives your passion for your work? I’ve always had a love for photography and, being a very image-driven industry, I think it makes sense I am drawn to this way of story-telling. Morning routine… I *try* to walk and/or run first thing in the morning. I find it a nice way to clear my head - free from my phone, tv, etc. While doing my morning skincare routine, I make a cup of hot lemon water and throw on my morning playlist. After that comes the coffee - which I drink far too much than I should admit. Book or podcast you recommend in the name of motivation or self-growth… Everyone should read The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business. It was such a life-changing book for me and really helped me identify what areas in my life I wasn’t happy with. Another favorite is You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life. If you are doubting yourself or at a crossroads, this is the book for you! What is your definition of being in complete alignment with your 'Soul Purpose’? I immediately think of a state of being. As in, not only reaching a place where you identify the area you are most passionate about, but then also acting on it. I think that’s when your soul feels most fulfilled. Read more

    Everyday Minerals Spotlight: Meet Devri
    Hey Devri! Tell us a little about yourself & your journey. My name is Devri and I am a writer and editor based in New York City, originally from Texas. Ihave worked in the editorial world for about a decade now, and I am super thankful for loving this life I have cultivated and worked so hard for. I also have a rare autoimmune disease called Takayasu’s Arteritis which affects only 1 in every 2 to 3 million people. You've taken a rare condition that you deal with daily, Takayasu's Arteritis, and have used it on your platform to empower others... Can you touch on this? I was diagnosed when I was 20 years old - it was a life changer for sure. As a writer, a creative, a woman, and a woman of color living with something so rare, I could never not incorporate it into my everyday life and content because it is something I experience on a daily basis and have had to navigate through with challenges. How are you taking in all that's happening right now while pushing to continue flourishing? I take it day by day. Some days are easier than others. In the first two months of quarantine, I was devastated. Through it all, I’ve been able to keep working and staying busy, so that’s been good. I also have spent a lot of much needed alone time that I don’t think I would’ve given myself if the pandemic hadn’t happened. Read more

  • My skin is definitely on the combination/oily side, however when I’m going through a major breakout I tend to bump up the glycolic acid and other powerful acne-fighting yet unfortunately drying ingredients. A few of these products I’ll incorporate into my routine for 2-4 days as a barrier while my skin heals. And others I’ve listed, I would not personally use for my skin type as they be a bit heavy on my sensitive combo skin.

    Pangea’s Organics Facial Cream Dry & Sensitive Skin

    The Rose Otto Essential Oil in this facial cream is calming and deeply nourishing for all skin types, even sensitive & mature. Argan Oil is all the rave right now, and for good reason, it's glow inducing benefits with antioxidants like Vitamins A + E and complexion-loving omega-6 fatty acids and Linoleic Acid make it worthy in a woman's beauty wardrobe. Argan actually absorbs rapidly and in turn boosts cell turnover, which is crucial in any morning routine for bringing out sustainable supple skin. Shea Butter and Sunflower Oil further enhance the glow and even help with sun damage. Marshmallow plumps the skin and soothes unwanted dryness and premature aging. Read more

  • Hey Sara! Tell us a little about yourself & your journey.

    Hi there! I’m a photographer, blogger, and interior decorator based in Los Angeles. From New York originally, I moved to California for college and never left! I live here with my partner, Eddie, in our lil two bedroom cottage I fondly call “The Hobbit House.” A few of my passions include plants, cozy interiors, sustainability, and travel - all things I discuss on my Instagram and lifestyle blog, Black & Blooms. I’ve been a creator for 4 years now, and just went full time last November. This first year of being self-employed has been quite the adventure!

    How are you taking this all in right now? Are there activities you've been incorporating to stay motivated?

    Working from home I’ve found that establishing a daily routine helps me stay motivated. Enjoying slow mornings before starting to work, taking lunch breaks, getting some fresh air and a change of scenery when I’m feeling stuck. I’m taking everything day by day and trying to give myself a bit of grace when some days aren’t as productive as others during this time. Read more

  • We’re going through a strange time. And for many of us, it’s taken a toll on our mental health, and for others still, the health state of our skin. My skin is particularly prone to breakouts, and in all of my years of constant trial & error, I have found a nighttime bath routine with a candle, Himalayan pink salt & a good face mask.These are just a handful of MANY I’ve used, my most-trusted mask bffs.

    This sheet mask, yep, rinse-free, is suitable for even the most sensitive skin. Ideal for thirsty skin needing a little hydration boost with its star ingredients fermented Coconut and Hyaluronic Acid & Plant Peptides, but also a go-to when relaxing in the salt-bath on good skin days.

  • Tell us a little bit about yourself and your journey.

    Hi, I'm Claire Wasserman and I'm the founder of Ladies Get Paid a global community and platform that gives women the resources and support to advance professionally and financially. I also have a book coming out on January 12, 2021!

    I started my career as an independent film producer in Bosnia. There was a guy I'd met in college who was writing a film and I said, What the heck let's just go for it and we actually ended up being nominated for a student Academy Award. But my concern was that making a film takes a very long time. It's also an financially unstable path. I looked back at my high school experience my college experience and I realized that something that I was extremely good at that I really enjoyed was making projects happen, primarily through raising money.

  • How did 'Hey Moon' begin?

    I had been making ceramics for about 5 years and had a lot of vessels kind of piling up. I bought a starter candle making kit and made a few candles in the vessels I had. Then a good friend (who owns Little Sister salon here in Austin) asked me if I would consider making candles to sell in her shop. That was maybe 5 years ago? I’ve lost track of time!

    Was creating heavenly-scented candles always in the cards for you?

    It’s been a long road to where I am now. I never, ever thought I would be a candle maker!

    At a glance, what does the process of bringing to life one of these look like?

    It’s a lengthy process! Every vessel I make I throw on the potter’s wheel. Then I trim off the excess clay, dry, kiln fire, glaze, fire again, then pour the candle. After that, the candle needs to cure for about 2 weeks.

    What kinds of scents are currently on the roster?

    I’m always experimenting and changing the scent line up. I personally tend to go for really earthy and woody scents so many are in that family (Mesa, Tarot Den, Palo Santo, Wildwood). I also love florals (Dark Rose, Fields, Vetiver), and slightly unexpected fruity scents (Fig Harvest, Pomelo, Bergamot). Read more

  • Hey gal! Tell us a little bit about you.

    Hey hey, my name is Zohara. I am half Israeli Moroccan and half Jamaican British. I grew up on the island of Bali, Indonesia my whole life, now for the past 3 years I have been living in New York City.

    I am a full time model, and the daughter of a photographer and a musician. Because of this I have always been in a creative environment which has now inspired me to create my own clothing line - make sure to stay tuned on my instagram! :) @zohara_even

    What does confidence mean to you in this day & age?

    To me to be confident is to feel completely strong and comfortable with myself, both mentally and physically. It means allowing myself to be happy with the decisions that I make and not feeling vulnerable to external judgements. Having a good support system of friends and family is so important to boost my confidence level, and I am beyond grateful for that.

    How do you face obstacles or personal challenges with grace?

    When I am faced with a challenge my first reaction is often to overthink the situation. Recently I’ve learned to take a step back and look at the bigger picture, while I still analyze all my options and outcomes I've learned to give myself some more breathing space and acknowledge that personal growth also comes out of challenges that come my way.
