tulips

because i know these beauties are sitting on my work {dining} table at home, wilting in the muggy heat, while i am here working in the foggy cold. los angeles is a city of variant climate pockets...

thanks stacy, and sam. they are so beautiful...

and i am hoping for some guidance. what do you wash your face with? i have used cetaphil for yrs - happily - but am looking for something "better"... thanks!

I use soap and toner. Currently using Aubrey organics rose mosqueta moisturizing bar and Druide toner. In Winnipeg (where I keep a little stash so I don't have to haul supplies every weekend), I've been using Druide goat's milk soap and Avalon lavender toner. The Avalon toner is too drying though.

My skin is super dry (a by-product of Grave's coupled with the climate) and both these soaps work really well for me. I'm religious about using moisturizer though, so that probably helps.

Beautiful flowers.

No help with the products. I have dry and very sensitive skin and for me, washing my face only very rarely (once a week at most) with a plain, unscented castile soap works best.

I will say that I do like Dr. Hauschka products though. Their Moisturizing and Rose Day Creams, while expensive, are quite nice and I've found them to be non irritating.

Hehe... ready? Water. Yep. Not that I can boast about beautiful, moisturized skin - it's just I get all itchy and tingly and red if I use anything but water.
I have been using a bar of peppermint soap from the herb farm lately and it seems to be mild enough... I just adore handmade soaps. The smell is absolutely divine.

Hope you find a good suggestion!

Hmmm. Probably a lot worse in many ways, but I use Chlorhexidine (used to be marketed under the name Hibitane, but I now get it by the generic name behind the counter). It is an antibacterial/antifungal (I know, bad bad, gasps of horror - should I even admit this on your blog? - but really, no one wants face fungus) Not that I have a huge break-out problem but i have a higher tendency now than when I was in my 30s, and it does seem to keep that in check, doesn't dry my skin either.

Just found your blog and it's lovely.

thanks all! i actually got talked into a zia product at the WF by the guy behind the counter. so far i like it. but i bought the teeny weeny size so that if it doesn't work out - i can always try another!
