Sunday Rituals: 5-Step Facial to Heal and Hydrate Winter Skin

Winter is a brutal time of year for our skin. There’s the hustle of holiday travel, mad dash for projects and presents, and skin-parching parties (hello rosacea, my old friend) paired with whipping winter winds (eczema, I’ve come to talk with you again). It’s no wonder that every winter, my face’s wish list consists of nothing more than a little extra love. So goes that saying, “the cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears, or the sea.” As I start to itch (literally itch, for lack of sunshine and humidity) for sun and sand in some soft and faraway warmer clime, this season I’ve set a quiet ritual of candles and a few favorite ocean potions. Sundays are set for my afternoon vacation embarkations into the bath. Bottled straight from the sea, all-natural OSEA Malibu is my longtime skin savior and go-to for weekly holidays in a bottle. Their powerhouse skin solutions are packed with vitamins, minerals, and natural ingredients like certified organic seaweed that’s hand-foraged as it drifts from the sea to Patagonia’s pristine …

Gifts for Her & Him, Home & Them

Growing up, my favorite moments were spent over winter break when the luxurious gift of time was bestowed upon little me — better known then as “Messy Jessie” for the many craft projects that blanketed our home’s hardwoods in glitter, twigs, and bits of tartan ribbon. I’d spend whole weeks making and dreaming and hunting for the perfect presents for loved ones. I found a sense of pride in punching above my weight, poring over endless aisles and catalogs to unearth the biggest and best gifts that my budget would allow. Then and now, my holiday compass points to what is joyful, useful, beautiful, and worthwhile. This year’s holiday gift guide is stocked accordingly with consciously considered ideas and objects that are ethical, sustainable, well-made, and filled with delight. I hope you enjoy them as you celebrate many merry moments this season. PS: 34 slow fashion, healthy home, and natural beauty spots and Cyber Week deals to shop.

5 Minute Face: Dewy Daily Makeup Routine

My idea of perfect daily makeup is somewhere between I woke up like this (flawless) and that endless summer glow that can only be found after a week sunbathing off the coast of Spain, lips stained and cheeks flushed off a big glass of Malbec and night of dancing. Really reasonable for a designer who works in an office all week and gets fully flush-faced at first sight of sunshine and rosé, right? With practice and a few miracle workers, I’ve figured out how to roll out of bed with eyes half shut and spend five minutes prepping for my day with a few good products to get glowing. Here we go… OSEA Sea Minerals Spray A couple spritzes of this perks my face right up. OSEA’s Spray is the first thing I put on my face in the morning and the last thing I spray on each night, before my face has to go eight hours without water. It’s a seriously calming formula that’s packed with vitamins and finishes skin with a gorgeous dewy …

5 Steps to Glowing Skin: Beautifully Natural OSEA Skincare

“You look so much healthier than before the wedding,” my mom recently mentioned as I watched her eyes trace from my forehead down over the bridge of my nose, resting on one cheek then crossing to the other. “Your face looks a lot… better.” Had anyone else made the comment it would have hit a nerve and I would have jumped to the defense of last summer’s skin. But when my mom notices something, she’s usually right. She’s just as perceptive as she is honest as she can be blunt. Six months ago my face was a mess.
