    Under The Sea

    The ocean is wild and calm, dangerous and beautiful.  It holds miraculous treasures; powerful, healing treasures.   Life flourishes here.  Algae are one of those life forces with abundant potential for our skin.

    Sleep Wrinkles

    The position in which we sleep and the material our pillowcase is made of might play a role in wrinkle formation or what are called sleep lines.  When we lie on our side or stomach, our face gets smooshed into the pillow.  If this happens over and over, permanent lines may form.    The best option is to sleep on our backs.  This position may not be comfortable for some people and we move around a lot when we sleep, so we are likely to end up on our side at…
