Drying, redness and peeling—the tell-tale signs that you’ve just OD’ed on too many acne products. Enter Santalia, an all-natural cure to this problem. Santalia uses organic sandalwood oil to calm irritation and fight acne-causing bacteria. I particularly love this product because it also contains kakadu plum, which is rich in vitamin C. Added bonus: vitamin C protects skin from oxidative stress, which causes wrinkles, sagging and discoloration. If you’re still battling acne into your adult years, I highly recommend this non-toxic choice.
Let’s be honest: Most home spa tips we hear get filed away under “something lovely to consider when someone adds an eighth day to the week.” But during a visit to New York’s Sweet Lily Natural Nail Spa the other day, we discovered the exception to the home spa rule: a treatment we would actually do at home—and in fact, have done since then. All that’s involved is halving a lemon crosswise, dipping it in granulated sugar, and working the surface over your soles.
