Resources for Lifestyle Recommendations

 
Skin brushing

Loofah Pads – These are the loofah pads I use for my daily skin brushing before every shower. You don’t need anything special, but you want to make sure it’s a natural fiber.

Skin brushing technique – This is the technique I use when skin brushing.
 
Cosmetics and Skin Care Products

All of the ingredients in your cosmetics should be food grade. For example, use skin care products that contain ingredients such as:

  • Organic Shea Butter
  • Cocoa Butter
  • Virgin Coconut Oil
  • Jojoba Oil
  • Murumuru Butter
  • Rice Bran Extract (Oryza Sativa)
  • Palm Oil
  • Aloe Vera Juice
  •

    Facial and Body Moisturizers

    These are the products that Amy and I use on our skin . . . all right, who am I kidding? I don’t use them. These are the products that Amy uses on her skin.

  • Organic Rose Water – Alcohol-free toner.
  • Rose Hip Oil – Amy uses this on her face and neck for moisturizer and skin damage repair. A little goes a long way.
  • Emu Oil – Excellent for skin healing and hair moisturizing.
  • Coconut Oil – More pure than the cooking-grade coconut oils, which is what you want if you have any skin issues.
  •  
    Coconut Oil Soap

  • Coconut Oil Soap – Okay, this is the one we both use. I use this for both shampoo and a body wash. And these are the loofah pads I use (different than the ones I use for dry skin brushing and again, a natural bristle). Amy noticed a huge difference in her skin once she started using this soap.

    Coconut Oil (Lauric Acid)

    Coconut Oil – Again, I recommend this brand, which is more pure than a cooking-grade coconut oil. If you’re using coconut oil for acne, eczema, and/or psoriasis, you want an oil that is more pure than cooking-grade.
     
    Oregano Oil

    Oregano Oil – This is a very fragrant oil. A little bit goes a long way. And yes, you will smell like Italian pasta sauce after you apply this so you may just want to do it at night.
     
    Detox Program

    14-day Detox Kit – Everything you need to detox once every 3-6 months depending on your skin condition. I really can’t recommend this program enough. It is especially helpful for skin conditions, but can also be used as an excellent health promoter.
     
    Detox Baths

    Epsom Salt – DO NOT buy epsom salt in a store. It is grossly overpriced. It should be this cheap.
     
    Healing Mask

    Bentonite Clay – I love this stuff. It feels really cool!

    Resources for Dietary Tips

     
    High Quality Protein

    PaleoMeal DF (Dairy Free) – We currently do not offer PaleoMeal online. It is only available at CrossFit Redux. Chocolate, Vanilla, or Berry.
     
    Collagen Powder

    Great Lakes Gelatin – This stuff is awesome. I’ve had a number of people tell me how it has improved their skin, joints, and hair. It’s a tasteless powder so you can dissolve it in anything from soups and stews to protein shakes.

    Sally Fallon’s Nourishing Broth – This is an outstanding book to learn how to make bone broth, which can revive your skin and health in general.
