If you see a white scratch forming when you run your fingernail against your skin, you’ve got dry skin. Dry skin that is left untreated can become tight, weak, flaky, and prone to skin conditions.
Here are some of the reasons why you may be experiencing this:
1. You Wash Too Often
Keeping yourself clean is great, but using harsh products excessively will leave your skin feeling dry.
Our skin comes with a natural moisture barrier that consists of water, oil, and other natural moisturizing factors. When we bathe using body washes, shower gels, or even some cleaners, it strips our skin of these essential hydrators, causing it to feel dry and parched.
Dermatologists recommend opting for oil-based cleansers and limit their use. Using too much of even the best products can be bad for the skin.
2. Washing With Very Hot Water
It’s no secret that showering with hot water is incredibly relaxing, but while your mind may be at ease under a hot shower, your skin is likely irritated. The skin isn’t designed to withstand high temperatures.
Hot water breaks down our skin’s natural barrier, strips its oils, and causes inflammation and irritation. If you have tight, flaky skin, it’s likely because you have long, hot showers.
Dermatologists suggest not showering for longer than 10 minutes, using temperate water, and patting your skin dry.
3. There’s a pH Imbalance
Our skin is on slightly on the acidic side of the pH scale because it needs to protect us from bacteria and environmental triggers.
Conventional bar soaps have an alkaline pH that disturbs the outer layer of the skin and makes us prone to bacteria. For healthy skin, we need cleansing agents that match our skin’s natural pH.
You can also opt for gentle cleansers that allow you to clean your skin without disturbing its pH.
4. You’re Exfoliating Excessively
It’s tempting to exfoliate rough skin in an attempt to get the smooth, supple skin you want, but exfoliating excessively will further aggravate your skin.
If you have dry skin, use a gentle body scrub no more than twice a week, and make sure to moisturize afterward to replenish all the essential oils.
Are you ready to put your dry skin woes behind you?

There was once a time when family members would share a bar of soap. Today, bars of soap have been replaced with body washes in most households; these last longer and aren’t as messy as bar soaps.
But not all body washes are the same; some are more suitable for your skin than others.
Use the following tips to help you pick the best body wash for your skin type:
Have you noticed how some bottles are labeled “body washes”, and others are “shower gels”? Consumers tend to use both terms interchangeably, but they aren’t the same.
The primary function of a body wash is to clean the skin thoroughly, and that’s exactly what shower gels do—a little too well.
Shower gels are made of detergent and water. The detergent consists of sodium laureth sulfate, and is designed to clean grime and oil from surfaces.
Detergent is harsh on the skin, so manufacturers have to add conditioning agents to their products to make them more suitable. They also infuse scents into them to provide lasting fragrance after use.
Because of the quantity of detergent in these products, they can make the skin dry—especially if you already have dry skin. Shower gels are also help wash away sweat post-workout, but their harsh ingredients can leave the skin feeling very dry.
Unless you want to slather layers of heavy moisturizers on you, it’s better you opt for a body wash over a shower gel, regardless of your skin type.
If you’ve used both shower gels and body washes, you’ll know that the latter is a lot creamier. They also look more like a lotion than gel and offer moisturizing benefits.
Body washes consist of large quantities of oil (sunflower and soybean), which make them gentler on the skin. They may also have petroleum jelly to help their particles latch on to the skin; this way, your skin feels moisturized even after you rinse the product off.
Over exposure to the sun, heat and dry weather causes the skin to feel parched. If you have extremely dry skin, look for a moisturizing, organic body wash that are enriched with natural ingredients that nourish the body.
Other than cleaning and nourishing the body, body washes, and shower gels can also provide additional benefits that include exfoliation and medicinal treatments for people with skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis.

Veganism was once considered to be a fringe concept, but it has now become mainstream. The term vegan is no longer exclusively used in a dietary context; it’s grown to encompass every aspect of life, including the development of skincare products.
2019 was declared ‘The year of the vegan’ by The Economist, with almost a quarter of millennials identifying as vegetarians or vegans. Outspoken celebrities such as Miley Cyrus and Beyoncé have been quite vocal about going vegan and are encouraging fans to switch as well.
Much like the dietary restrictions that come with being vegan, vegan skincare avoids any ingredients derived from animals or animal byproducts.
Vegan skincare products don’t include traditional ingredients such as honey, keratin, collagen, and beeswax. These ingredients are substituted with plant-based or synthetic ingredients that have been sourced ethically.
Good for Your Skin!
The ingredients used in vegan skincare products are natural—and very minimal. They nourish the skin gently by penetrating it, and are free from any chemicals that cause skin irritation or other dermal issues.
Since vegan skincare products are entirely made from plant extract, they are suitable for most skin types, including sensitive skin.
They also contain minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants that help hydrate and repair skin cells. Although vegan ingredients do not contain the collagen that is necessary for keeping the skin fresh and rejuvenated, the plant-based ingredients boost the natural collagen production of the skin, keeping it looking younger and healthier for longer.
Good for the Planet!
The runoff from most synthetic skincare products contains harmful and toxic chemicals. Once it goes down the drain, it eventually ends up contaminating the earth, as well any water source nearby, including rivers, lakes, and oceans.
It also contains a large number of animal byproducts that are derived from livestock. Studies show that livestock is responsible for almost 50% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. Not to mention all the poor animals that are subjected to product testing to make sure that these products are safe for human use.
Vegan skincare products do not contain any animal products or byproducts. They are also free from harsh chemicals and pesticides that many animals are exposed to. The ingredients are completely biodegradable, which means they don’t end up contaminating the earth or the water supply. The reduced carbon footprint is one of the main reasons people are moving towards vegan skincare products!

Millions of women in the United States put on several different types of cosmetic products on their skin after they wake up. This is exemplified in the fact that the cosmetic industry in the U.S. is worth $72 billion
From influencers to brand loyalty, several trends are shaping the future of the cosmetic industry. However, one of the biggest ones is customer demand for clean, natural, and sustainable products that are made from organic ingredients.
According to a survey by Forbes, over 59% of customers indicated that they would consider switching their favorite cosmetics brand for a brand that offers natural products.
Let’s take a look at the amazing benefits of natural and organic skincare products:
No Harmful Ingredients
How many times have you picked up a skincare product from your local drug store and failed to recognize its ingredients? Most non-organic skincare products are full of human-made synthetic chemicals such as sulfates, sodium laurel, petroleum, and parabens. These ingredients can cause dermal issues such as irritated and inflamed skin. Long-term use can even lead to hormonal imbalances and organ toxicity.
The best thing about natural and organic skincare products is that you can recognize almost every ingredient used to make them. All components are derived from plants and, most importantly, they are grown organically without using GMOs, pesticides, and synthetic fertilizers. That means your body only absorbs natural and real ingredients that are completely safe.
Suitable For Most Skin Types
As organic and natural skincare products don’t contain any harsh chemicals, they are less likely to cause irritation, inflammation, and allergic reactions.
Any allergic reactions caused by natural skincare products can be directly linked to food allergies, such as strawberries or peanuts, all of which are quite easy to identify and avoid.
Organic skincare products are made in the most natural way possible to preserve the vital vitamins and antioxidants found in the plants that comprise them. Because they are grown without using pesticides and herbicides, the products are free from contaminants. This also means that 95% of the product’s contents are active ingredients, which makes them more effective compared to synthetic skincare products that contain only 5 to 10% active ingredients.
Healthier, Glowing Skin
While synthetic skincare products may offer quick, visible results and provide instant gratification, long-term exposure to the chemical components of these products can weaken and damage the skin. Prolonged exposure to synthetic chemicals can reduce the skin’s oxygenation levels, causing wrinkles and other signs of aging to appear prematurely.
Natural skincare products can take longer to show any visible results, but the real nutritional benefits of the organic ingredients are incomparable. They are gentle on the skin and are known to replenish, moisturize, and nourish for long-term healthy and glowing skin.
Better For the Planet!
The beauty industry has often received criticism for its impact on the environment, as well as conducting animal testing to ensure that products are safe for humans.
Natural skincare products have a minimal impact on the environment as they are free from toxic chemicals and are fully biodegradable. Organic skincare products are also cruelty-free. Made with all-natural ingredients, they don’t require testing to ensure they are safe for humans!

So here we are, in the middle of an epidemic I never thought I'd see. And of course it would take place once I opened a small business. I ran everything online and recently rented a cute little place in Newport Beach on a busy street off of 17th Street and PCH.
I work hard, I have 2 children and just like everyone else, things are uncertain right now. I have no will to stop what I'm doing because it brings me joy and I need to continue for myself mentally and spiritually. I will do just as everyone else and cut my costs to be below cost, because I need to create and move products.
Right now if you are a grocery store you're fine. If you are a skincare line also inside the store you are fine. Small businesses are the ones who aren't going to make it and we are the ones who need to most of all. I mean, come on, look at what these little guys like myself offer.
NoSH BoDY uses the BEST ingredients, they are paraben free, non-toxic, never harmful, always fresh, organic and mostly vegan as well, earth friendly, safe for children, excellent for delicate and sensitive skin, tested, have results and is guaranteed. The products speak for themselves and so do the ratings on Google, YELP, Facebook and my Intagram followers and clients include celebrities and are often featured on their IG Stories. I also have been written up and featured in The Skinny Confidential Blog and won awards and been the featured business for Tailor Brands.
I have worked in skincare and cosmetics for many years prior to NoSH BoDY and have a passion for creating products that are interesting and unique to my brand. I literally make Food For the Skin, especially since it is the largest organ.
I am Beettan Certified and offer SugarBeet Spray Tanning at my studio or I do mobile pop-ups in home or anywhere you'd like to have an event. Bachelorette parties are the BEST! This tan goes on dry, doesn't use bronzers so you can wear white after you spray, uses your own natural color to develop into your own golden glow. So it is NOT a FAKE TAN, it is real. The Sugar in the Beets created the DHA and your own natural epidermis to create your personal tan. You should try it sometime of course onece things go back to normal. In the mean time there is also, a self tanner that is buildable and goes on clear, it fool proof and smells great too just like the spray.
As far as right now and the world and COVID-19 I feel it is God calling out to us all. He is asking us all to STOP! Life needed to come to a halt, we were all running the rat race and living from one stressful moment to the next. Money may be the uncertainty right now but what does our soul need. We need to reconnect with family, spend more time at home with our loved ones, take a step back from the world and go into the darkness to once again see the light. Next time maybe we will see, we will know and we will understand that we need to balance things better. Also, love thy neighbor, not hoard and steal toilet paper from others or bottled water. I'm not here to judge but honestly people, your soul can live with that? Let's be kind, giving and show peace and happiness. Be thankful and grateful for each day.
Again, so online, support small businesses that are struggling. If you need a product, try looking online at the bottom of the search for a local company and see what they offer. I have my customers purchasing online and shipping or purchase and do porch pick up if needed.
Let's give everyone a change to make it out of this and still be ok.
Sending all of your family, friends, co-workers etc a healthy quarantine time and we will get through this....UNITED!
Grateful and thankful,
Today we are talking about our ARM PITS, it's an area we all have to cover either the stink, the sweat or both. I have used other natural companies and this one is different....by far!
I met Mila Shmurak back in 2014 when my daughter Priscilla was only 6 months old and we were in a Mommy and Me class, she was there with her second son Avi. I instantly gravitated to her, she's warm, charming, funny, personable, outgoing and gorgeous!
Over the next year or so of knowing her she created a small business and it's one that I think is genius! She wants to educate and get people to stop sweating though personal pit care. Yes, you heard right...through arm pits! She started Bare Pits which is an all natural organic
During that time I had been dealing with itchy arm pits and couldn't figure out what it was. I had tried creams and all sorts of things to make it stop but the itching always came back. I have very sensitive skin which has only happened as I've gotten older. I was sure it was contact dermatitis of some kind. I would get it to stop for awhile and again returning.
When Mila first started I purchased a container of deodorant, she was so nervous because all of her mommy friends wanted to try her handmade in small batch deodorant. I could't believe after a week of using it my itching stopped!
Mila has grown her company so much since my first day or purchasing that container, I find her products sometimes in yoga studios, little local markets and she has an amazing online shop. She has so much information on arm pits and personal pit care, who knew?
With a growing business and juggle now 3 children, she is a wonderful inspiration. In fact, she was the one who cheered me on when I started NoSH BoDY. So, just as she encouraged me, I encorage you to try Bare Pits. It's sooooo good!!!! It's on point too with it being earth friendly, non toxic, made fresh, organic and some vegan products and she has literally something for everyone!
Check her out, I promise you will not regret it!
Thanks for reading and Happy Holidays!
Happy Holidays Everyone!
The year will be coming to a close in the next few weeks and we will bid farewell to 2019. This year was a good year and a lot of interesting things unfolded for myself personally as well as within NoSH BoDY. I'm so excited to leave this year on an up note and sweep it into the New Year and show that 2020 is a year to GLOW and GROW!
I decided to have some fun with my company and do the first collaboration with another company. I have always done everything myself and am very much a control freak when it comes to what I do because I have such a passion. It is hard to find like minded people who I know really are all about the best for people and found someone who was willing to trust in me with what she was passionate about. I found Michelle through a recent customer that fell in love with my products, she read about me on The Skinny Confidential Blog with Lauryn Evarts Bosstick. Suzanne owns The Bronzed Beet and was blown away with what I made and we shared some messages back and forth and she sent me a tanning lotion that was created by Michelle. Now I have worked with tons of tanning creams and bronzers and lotions and even worked in the old days at a tanning salon in Carmel, California when I was 17. But to my surprise this lotion was different. It went on clear, the smell was amazing and not a long drying period where I was walking around naked before getting dressed for bed. I just put my pjs on and fell asleep. In the morning after dreaming of the tropics because I smelled so good, I jumped up excitedly to see what my new lotion left me with. Would I wake to a nightmare or pleasant color that I dreamt of.....NO STREAKS, NO DISCOLORATION, NO WEIRD MARKS ANYWHERE!!!! YES, I had beautiful golden glowing tan skin in December, even in Orange County it's too cold to glow like that naturally but I was! Michelle Peth who started BEETTAN in 2014 was all about starting a healthy way to tan. Her younger sister was a fair skin, red head beauty but had some scares with skin cancer and could never get that golden glow she and all of us want, naturally and organically. Michelle worked hard on finding a way to make it possible! Michelle and I both have a love and passion for teaching people that having beautiful skin naturally is achievable. She worked with chemists and was able to make from the sugars in beets a natural way for the body to create a tan from your own mix of your skin with the organic ingredients.
NoSH BoDY will be presenting SugarBeet Organic Tan this New Year here in the OC! I will make the announcement once I am certified by Michelle and ready to take on clients. My NoSH BoDY skincare line and NEW garden collection will help enhance your skin for this youthful glow.
Let's be more health conscious this year and start feeding our skin pure natural organic skincare products. NoSH BoDY is here to be Nourishing Organic Simple Healthy and that is exactly what this year is about!
This year 2020 it's about you, your family and healthy beautiful skin!
Have a wonderful and spectacular New Year and start it off right....
Til Next Year.....
Today I had The skinny told on Nosh Body by none other than, The Skinny Confidential herself, Lauryn Evarts Bosstick
A few months back I had my friend Faye's big sister ask me some questions about an upcoming blog she wanted to write. She had recently been using my products and secretly was pregnant.
She sent over some questions and I never knew if she would get around to posting it, I mean she was recently written up in USA Today ( link below), now pregnant, still busting her butt as a posdcaster, writting, reading, organizing, working out, wife, blogger, the list was endless...but I know her secret, it's called time batching.
She has over 50 million downloads, she is the queen on skincare, cosmetics, health and wellness both physically and mentally. Her team includes her husband Michael Bosstick a wonderful staff that all seems and some are family. The fun begins when you listen to she and her husband and the relationship and banter they have, it is so hilarious. Their podcasts can tune you in even if you don't even know who the people are that they are interviewing, they have you captured and listening, literally sucked in within seconds of tuning in. I always feel great after listening to them and always learn something. In fact, I had never had the patience to tune into a podcast until I got into there podcasts.
Her sister has always been such a fan of my products and she always told me NoSH BoDY is the BEST and it's going to be BIG someday. I'm still a small business and being a stay at home mom is first to me but as my kids grow I hope NoSH does as well. It is a dream to create something that everyone connects to.
I hope you enjoy the post and blog written and I do hope if you haven't tried NoSH BoDY you will, I am always creating.
It is with a grateful heart that I have people who believe in me and I can't thank each one of you enough!
To Health and Wellness Inside and Out!
in search of the everlasting glow....Do you wonder why your skincare still leaves your skin flat, dull and lifeless?
.Are you putting products on that you bought at a beauty counter and it's giving you empty promises, or confused at the drug store with all the different cute packages of natural skincare? Or something that sounds good so why not, only to find it in your drawer used maybe a few times. Then months later you find it at the bottom of the drawer and hate to thow it away even though it's now expired and you KNOW you are NEVER going to use it but think another wasted $30 or more and it's hard to toss. You are not alone!
When you think about the skincare industry your mind probably thinks of the big major labels that have lasted the test of time. A lot of reasons why they last, they are made in mass production by companies who have chemists, who put together compounds and ingredients that are modified, made in a lab, created by mixing chemicals and some natural things, using the same chemicals that keep going into the skin and absorbed into the bloodstream.
Well I'm here to tell you that shouldn't be the case, you don't need all that to look great and have your skin glow.
I've created NoSH BoDY to be nourishing organic simple and healthy, food for the skin. I believe in feeding the skin, the largest organ the healthiest ingredients. It won't sit in a drawer I promise you. You will use this from beginning to end and look amazing. No more wasted money guaranteed. It is not sitting on the shelf collecting dust and getting old in the containers and full of preservatives that are harmful to your body.
NoSH BoDY is made fresh in small batches and made with only the most high end luxurious ingredients. I did all the research and tracking down and creating for you of what works! You should be using your products and not hoarding a collection of junk in your drawer. Even those "toxic" skincare items expire eventually after you open them, so a few months go by and you haven't used it, it's like opening a container of cottage cheese, it's going to spoil and have chemicals so you NEED to throw it away. Have you ever looked at those tiny pictures of the jars on the bottom 6M means 6 months from when you open it.
NoSH BoDY is feeding your skin the freshest and healthiest ingredients. Everything is perfected to not be harmful or irritating. Even down to each essential oil used. Some independent companies over do the ratios and can leave the skin to have more damage. Less is more as you've probably heard before. This is the case with the amount of essential oils because they need to have a safe dilution ratio. We at NoSH BoDY are overly cautious with each thing we put into our line which makes it the safest for your whole family.
So if you're using NoSH for the first time you'll notice that a little does go a long way. You shouldn't feel weighed down and heavy but an uplifting and fresh feeling to your skin. You don't want to feel full after a meal, you want to feel like you're nourished and satisfied. This goes for the skin as well.
NoSH BoDY is all organic and some products are vegan, they are always all natural and you will not get toxic, synthetic or harmful ingredients at all. We are a family based business and wanted to create something that was earth and eco friendly as well as sustainable products that will go with the sign of the times. We are dedicated to making the most health conscious skincare for ourselves and our children Did you know that even while pregnant, mommies to be, need to do the same while the baby is growing. You need to protect that child and start with safe ingredients for mom snd baby.
When you start feeding your child for the first time, you wouldn't give them old food to try, so why feed their skin something that's been sitting on the shelf for 6 months.
You can trust that this is in the best interest of your child's skincare needs, I do know they need freshly made products that are healthy and simple. I researched over the years and continue to educate myself. I know that there are a lot of products that are "potential hazards after long exposure to the use of them".
I've dug deep in my investigations of skincare and my findings are completely awful. I'm not at liberty to get into which products and manufactures but I can tell you there are so many that have information on their own companies and know that some of the things they use in their lines eventually can lead to cancers, infertility, skin issues, psoriasis, rashes and diseases that were once rare but we are finding out aren't so rare anymore due to exposures to certain ingredients repeatedly.
If you can't understand what is inside the container why use it? Your skincare should be up there with fresh milk, eggs, produce. The skin is the largest organ of the body and things are absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream. Toxins are stored in the body and harmful ingredients ingested or absorbed are simply not healthy by any standards.
As with any company or any ingredients not everything is for everyone, that is also why I try to keep it on the safe side of how I use and mix, create and the ratios used in my line are overly safe. I always guarantee everything I make, so there's nothing to loose by trying something that is good for you, healthy for you and so delicious your skin will thrive. Here's to revitalizing your skin!
To Great Skin and A Healthy Glow,
Have you ever wondered why you can't seem to get your lotion to last. Why you try numerous balms, butters, lotions, creams....everything you can imagine but yet you still look like a dehydrated prehistoric dinosaur an hour after you apply?
When the epidermis has a harsh layer of dead skin on the outer portion it is hard for your body to allow the penetration of the hydration of your moisturizer.. Leaving your skin feeling dull and dry and your pocketbook empty with all the promises of youthful looking skin down the drain.
All skin in different, When you are young and when you are much older I believe a more mild exfoliation is necessary. Young skin usually doesn't get the brunt of the build up and older folks have thiner skin so gentle is the way to go. This is why I created the Sugar Oat Mimosa Scrub. It is lightly exfoliating the skin with the organic coconut sugars and organic raw sugars. The organic oats are blended to a mix that will help gently remove dirt and oils that clog the pores, it helps treat acne , has antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties and treats dead skin. Oats contain a compound called saponins, which is a natural cleanser. When you exit the shower you will already feel your skin glowing. The fresh citrus scented blend will make you relaxed as if you've had a nice delicious mimosa in the shower. You need not rub the skin but gently pat it dry.
For a more invigorating scrub I highly recommend the Peppermint Latte Scrub. It is made with the most amazing and most luxurious salts from the Dead Sea, this scrub helps reduce aging, the depth of wrinkles on the body, and treats body acne and psoriasis. This is why I like to have my clients leave it on the skin for a bit (turn the shower off when you scrub) and after is sits for a bit I like to rescrub the surface one more time. The salt will stimulate the blood circulation and with the added organic coffee it can help reduce the appearance of cellulite. It's also very calming, has vitamin B-3 to help fight cancer and reduces inflammation in the skin. The peppermint will leave you feeling like you have walked out of a spa. And with both of my scrubs you will not need to even hydrate the day you exfoliate the skin with NOSH BODY because it is the most hydrating scrub you will ever experience. The organic beeswax and organic oils will do the work that day. So just enjoy being pampered!
You will know when you need to exfoliate again but everyones skin is different. I suffer from aging dry skin and so I exfoliate 2xs a week with the latte and 1x a week with the mimosa. I like the mix because midweek I like the lighter formula and use it on my face. I do not recommend using the Peppermint Latte Scrub on the face as I think it is too abrasive.
After doing this though you will notice a huge difference in your skin! You will need far less product of moisturizer as it should seep into the skin and not sit on the surface. I tell my NOSH BODY clients a little should go a long way. Your skin can only take In so much and if your putting too much on it's a waste.
This should help you though with how your use your moisturizer and it should last you much longer. It should glide on and be a thin layer, if you look greasy you've over used! Start off small amounts you can always add more is what I do.
I hope this helps you have better results with your skin and by knowing that you need to remove that dead layer you'll feel lighter....not your pocketbook (wink).
