This post is part of a campaign with Mom It Forward Influencer Network - all my opinions are my own.
If I had to give you the top two questions I get asked most as a nutritionist and natural living advocate they would be...
1. What does your weekly meal plan look like?
2. What do you put on your skin?
Just like what we put IN our bodies, what we put ON our bodies is vitally important to our health. Toxic, unnatural ingredients can cause an array of health problems, both short term and long term, which is why it's important to be educated on what goes into what you're putting on your body. This is a message I convey to all my clients.
I have a few top favorite brands that I go to when it comes to hair, beauty and skin products and you've seen me touch on the topic from time to time. But there's a new kid on the block that is making waves in the organic beauty world and I wanted to introduce you all to one of my very new favorites.
With over 8 Collections to choose from to create your own specialized regiment, Organic Doctor utilizes organic ingredients from around the world. My personal regiment uses products from four of the collections which I will outline for you below.
The award-winning line offers both skincare and haircare products and is new to the U.S. The company, founded in Britain, scours the planet for the finest botanical and naturally inspired ingredients to ensure that the bioactive properties of the organic ingredients in each product are truly captured.
The products are now available in CVS throughout the United States, as well as on Amazon for easy online ordering.
I use a four-step skin care process that combines products from their Tea Tea, Rose Otto, Snail Gel and Coconut Oil collections. Living in a dry desert state, it helps with moisture retention, as well as anti-aging and deep cleansing. All of which I need.
My morning routine includes their Organic Tea Tree Face Wash and Virgin Coconut Oil Hydrating Radiance Elixir, to keep my skin feeling light and revitalized all day. The face wash is a gentle yet deeply penetrating facial cleanser, formulated with a proprietary blend of pure Tea Tree Oil, Mandarin Oil, Lemon Oil and Witch Hazel. I love its mildness and fresh, clean smell. While the elixir is light, fast absorbing and hydrating, it instantly penetrates my skin with and gives a subtle glow to this busy mama.
At night, I use the face wash once more, this time finishing with the Snail Gel Cream instead of the elixir. I like having something a little more decadent to put on a night, that can quickly absorb and restore the natural moisture levels of my skin. It also helps my skin feel firmer and more toned when I wake up in the morning.
And once or twice a week, or when I feel like I need a deep cleansing boost, I use the Rose Otto Face Mask. It makes me feel like I'm taking "me" time to pamper and take care of myself, which is so important during this season of motherhood. The bio active organic Rose Otto Oil is a hydrating and moisturizing essential oil blended with a mineral rich clay and offers renowned skin toning and healthy aging properties.

Always remember, nosh clean and nurture your skin. It will thank you.
