Skin Superfood Smoothie (Dairy-Free + Refined Sugar-Free)

Hi there! Erica here from the Paleo and Whole30 food blog Real Simple Good. I am one half of the duo behind Real Simple Good. In our former lives before turning our blog into a business, my husband, Justin, and I were both CPA’s (certified public accountants) – yeah I know… SO BORING right?! We both felt like we had more to give to the world than punching out spreadsheets and talking about last year’s financial results. To top it all off, I was diagnosed with the autoimmune disease Multiple Sclerosis (MS) over a decade ago and really needed to...

Our Founder Shares Her Nighttime Skin + Hair Care Routine

It’s funny to think about how much my nighttime routine has shifted over the years. Back when I was a teenager and well into my early twenties, my nighttime routine was minimal at best – I was proud of myself if I remembered to just wash my face before going to sleep. I spent so little time caring for my skin, hair and self, but so much time getting “done up” in the morning. Now, the complete opposite is true. When carried out in its entirety (which doesn’t happen every night), my nighttime skin and hair care routine is somewhat...

PP Babe: Christine Longoria

A couple of years ago, I came across the most stunning pair of gemstone studs at a small boutique. Not only did I fall in love with the simple design + minimal packaging, I noticed on the label that a part of the proceeds went to support anti-human trafficking efforts. I was sold. I wore those studs everyday and shared about the mission (and must-have pieces!) of Dear Survivor ever since. Fast forward to a year and a half later, on a camping trip in the desert, I discovered that the founder of Dear Survivor was there as well! Such...

Why Aluminum Isn't The Only Ingredient To Avoid In Your Deodorant

Aluminum. The dreaded ingredient in deodorant. By now, we’re all well aware of the harmful effects it has on the health of our body + brain and to steer clear of aluminum in deodorant. Our delicate underarms are located near our lymph nodes and breast tissue, making it essential for our health to swap out an aluminum-filled antiperspirant for a non-toxic alternative. While we’ve finally learned to avoid aluminum in deodorant, there are even more sneaky + unsafe ingredients found in “natural deodorant” that you never want to apply to your pits. The one we’re focusing on today, and want...

3 Things I've Learned While Balancing Business and Motherhood

Just when I think I've struck a decent rhythm with the mom/business owner balance, I get knocked back down by some unexpected curveball. The most recent one came this morning as I was getting close to leaving for work. I was downstairs making breakfast and goofing around with my daughter (2 yrs) for most of the morning. When I began to gather my things, slip on my shoes, etc. she suddenly blurted out the words, "mommy no work". MAN - that got me. I've dealt with "mom guilt" off and on since becoming a mom two years ago, but this...

Double Cleansing: Do or Don't? Our Holistic Esthetician Explains Why

We’re all about simple + powerful ways to care for the skin. So let’s get back to the basics. While there’s so much hype about miracle ingredients + must-have products, we can’t overlook the most crucial step in any skincare routine: cleansing. The fact is, most of us are already making several cleansing mistakes. We either cleanse too quickly, we cleanse too often (or not enough!), we aren’t completely + thoroughly removing product (cleanser, makeup, etc...), or we're using the wrong cleanser for our skin type (wreaking even more havoc on the health of our skin). After cleansing, have you...

Wellness Expert Sara Adler Shares Her Top Tips for Better Sleep

Before we jump in today, I just have to tell you one thing. I’m actually a tiny bit nervous to share my real (unedited) nighttime routine with you guys.

The Dirt On Dry Shampoo (Why You Should Swap Yours Asap)

Dry shampoo has become a daily staple in most women’s beauty routines. It extends the life of a style in between washes, helps to absorb excess oil and refreshes second (or third… or fourth) day hair.

PP Babe: Allie Lehman

Allie has played an instrumental role in our success as a company ever since I reached out to her about wanting to re-brand 6 months after starting Primally Pure.

Why You Need to Break Up With Your Lipstick

As women, we love our lips. We line them, color them, stain them and plump them. We pucker up, we pose for selfies and we smooch our partner. Lips are a feature most of us love about our faces and we apply products religiously. It’s rare to go bare when it comes to our lips. We have one chapstick in the car cupholder, a lipstick tube (or two) in our bag, a few of our favorite colors in our cosmetics drawer and a lip balm on our bedside table. We wear a different color depending on our outfit or occasion...
