Did you know that if everyone in the United States replaced 1 roll of nonrecycled toilet paper with a roll of recycled, 423,900 trees would be saved!!!  If everyone did that with a box of facial tissue, another 163,000 trees would continue to do their job absorbing carbon and creating more oxygen!! (Find this tip and many others in the book The Eco Chick How to Be Fabulously Green Guide to Life)

There are many brands of recycled toilet and facial tissue so to help you make the best decision, check out a shopping guide from the Natural Recources Defense Council for toilet paper..I tend to us 365 (Whole Foods brand), Green Forest , or Seventh Generation or which ever is less expensive..(added bonus! Green Forest is super soft!)

Something I learned this past year while in cancer land was about dry brushing.   This is something you want to do before you get in the bath or shower.  It is an excellent exfoliant and stimulates your lymphatic system to help fight disease.  (it also helps break up cellulite!!)  The brushes are very inexpensive (I think I paid $10 for mine at a small local health store)  I found this great blog called Dry Skin Brush that gives great details on the importance of dry brushing as well as a demonstration on how to do it.  Please watch the video because there is a very specific way to brush to get the maximine results and the best way for your lymphatic system.

Happy Brushing!

There are many different factors that go into making your skin looking younger..and one of the best ones is a gentle exfoliating scrub.  Sloughing off any dead or dry skin will instantly make your skin brighter and your moisturizer will sink into to every nook and cranny making you look younger instantly!! My favorite scrub is Pangea Organics Egypitian Geranium with Adzuki Bean & Cranberry Scrub.  Not only does this product feel amazing on your skin, and is completely free from any harmful ingredients, its packaging is also made from 100% post-consumer newsprint (without any glues or dyes) and is embedded with different seeds for planting!!
