Posted by & filed under Our Story.

I’m new to the Skinfix team and feel proud to be part of an organization that provides consumers with skincare products that are safe, thoughtfully formulated and full of natural, good for your skin ingredients. That’s one of the reasons I’m so excited about our Healthy Skin launch.  This new collection includes Skinfix®Cleansing Oil WashTM , Skinfix® Daily LotionTM, Skinfix® Ultra‐Rich Hand CreamTM, Skinfix® Lip Repair BalmTM. These are the kinds of products that make me feel good about what I’m introducing into my home and into the lives of my family. I’m a self-professed beauty junkie but for the last little while, I’ve been more mindful of the choices I make. Now that my daughter is almost twelve and has taken a keen interest in everything beauty-related, I find myself scanning labels a little more diligently. As a parent, it’s my job to make sure I am making healthy choices for my family and by extension, that includes the products we use on our bodies. The other day, we purchased an aluminum-free deodorant and nail polish that was free of toxic ingredients. I also replaced her scented body wash with our new Cleansing Oil Wash and I was pleasantly amazed at how receptive she was to all of it. Now that the colder weather is approaching, I know she’ll need products that soften and protect her delicate little hands and lips. Products that will relieve dryness and won’t irritate her skin.

As a consumer, she has options. I want her to get used to the ritual of making informed decisions. Doing research. Reading labels. Feeling empowered and educated. I want her to use products that are healthy and nourishing and gentle. I’m excited to watch her journey of self-discovery unfold. And a really big part of that is standing on the sideline as she makes choices about what she eats and who her friends are and what products she uses on her own body.

How to Squeeze in a Workout During Naptime

Posted by & filed under Our Story.

The naptime workout…not just a sleep deprived dream anymore.

via Modernize

There comes a time after the birth of your child when you’re fed up of sitting on the couch and watching the Kardashians. When that time comes, you soon realize that the only time you will ever have to work out is when your baby is sleeping. If, like parents everywhere, you know that naps are too short, do not fear. Here are a few tips for fitting in a workout (okay, and an episode or two of Bravo’s best) during naptime.

Be prepared
Utilize your newly honed organizational skills by prepping for your workout before baby sleeps. Put on your workout clothes, grab some water, and set up your exercise space while your little one is in a good mood, or if you’re very clever, first thing in the morning. Having a dedicated workout station is a good idea too, as you will spend less time tidying up and more time sweating.

Choose a routine
Part of being prepared for your workout includes finding and sticking to an exercise plan that works for you. Choose a DVD or online program that can be done in smaller increments, or challenge yourself to a couch to 5K challenge. If your baby loves sleeping outside, then pop her in the jogging stroller and take to the sidewalks. Knowing what you will be doing before your workout time starts keeps you from wasting precious minutes hemming and hawing about which yoga, or barre, or Insanity routine to attempt.

March to the beat
Headphones are the exercising parent’s best friend. Naptime workouts don’t have to be silent for you, so load up the iPhone with your favorite fast paced tunes and get moving. Most monitors these days have video screens, or volume alerts at the very least, so you can stretch, run, and jazzercise away with the knowledge that your little one is sleeping soundly.

Stay accountable
You are more likely to keep to your naptime workout regimen if you log your progress in some way. Join a Facebook group, download an exercise app, or write down your workout stats every time to keep yourself motivated. But remember to be flexible, too, since naptime is often unpredictable and a stressful environment is not a good workout environment. If your exercise time has to be pushed back every once in awhile, then so be it, because happy babies make happy parents.

Taking the plunge into post baby workouts can seem an impossible task. But, if you plan your exercise routine and prepare your space ahead of time, you can make the most of the naptime hour (or hours, if you’re lucky!) and have a successful training session on a fairly regular basis. When your child stops taking naps, all bets are off, so get exercising now!

Skinfix is proud to partner with Habitat for Humanity again to support Nova Scotia’s first annual Women Build program! This week, leading female business and community leaders will take over the organization’s build sites in the Halifax area, forming crews to become part of a global campaign that brings women together in the shared mission to help families in need of a “hand up.”

To support these helping hands, Skinfix is providing each builder with Skinfix Hand Repair Cream in their tool belts, and daily door prizes of Skinfix favorites, including our Daily Lotion, Cleansing Oil Wash, Hand Repair Cream, and Lip Repair Balm!

Funds raised through the Women Build will help Habitat for Humanity Nova Scotia mobilize volunteers and community partners to build safe, decent and affordable housing, making homeownership a reality for many who would otherwise be unable to own their own homes.

Habitat for Humanity Nova Scotia is a non-profit organization working towards a Nova Scotia where everyone has a safe and decent place to live. Since 1992 the organization has built 45 homes throughout the province to help low income working families achieve the goal of successful homeownership.

Follow along on social media this week with #NSWomenBuild and @skinfixinc!

Breakfast-Cookie-Wendy-McCallum-photo-for-August-blog-1.jpg.pagespeed.ce.-MgmHDomwQ

Great news! Breakfast cookies are a thing, and these just happen to be gluten, dairy & and refined sugar-free, but somehow still decadent enough to eat for dessert! Safe for the lunchbox, they also make a terrific recess snack.

Ingredients:

2 mashed ripe bananas

1/3 c maple syrup

1/4 c coconut oil, melted

1 egg

2 tsp vanilla

3 c slow cook rolled oats

1/4 c sunflower seeds

1/4 c raisins

1/3 c dark chocolate chips

2 tbsp chia seeds

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp sea salt

To make:

In a medium bowl, combine mashed bananas, maple syrup, coconut oil, egg and vanilla.

In a large bowl, combine oats, seeds, raisins, chocolate chips, chia, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt and mix well.

Add wet to dry and combine.

On parchment lined baking sheets, drop cookies in about 2.5 tbsp amounts (about 8 per sheet), They won’t really spread much, so they don’t need a lot of space in between them. Lightly press the top of each with a spatula to gently condense (not flatten!).

Bake at 325F for 16-17 minutes, taking care not to burn bottoms. Transfer to racks and let cool.

Makes about 24 cookies.

Enjoy!
