Expert Advice

Braving the overcrowded airport for some much needed festive QT? Wouldn’t you like to arrive at Grandma’s house fresh-faced and glowy? If you answered yes to any of the preceding q’s, you won’t want to miss these four in-flight skincare tips.


We love seeing family for the holidays, but air travel can take a serious toll on the skin! Airplane cabin air is extremely dry and sucks the hydrating water content right out of your skin. Studies show that most cabin air is at about 20% humidity, 10% lower than a Las Vegas summer. Not to worry loves, there are a few easy travel hacks to keep you looking fresh as a first winter snow.

Travel with a reusable water bottle

Having your own reusable water bottle is essential to getting enough liquid to support your skin’s hydration level. We suggest filling (and refilling) a 12oz or larger bottle and drinking half of your body weight in ounces over the course of the travel day.

Don’t wear makeup on the plane

Covering your skin with a layer of makeup during a drying flight can clog pores with environmental toxins and bacteria contributing to irritation and breakouts.

 Avoid plane food

Not that you were looking forward to it anyway, but plane food is chock-full of sodium that can cause unwanted puffiness and swelling. Pack healthy low sodium snacks like cut veggies, unsalted nuts, and fresh fruit to support your skin.

Not Too Cheesy: Vegan "Cheese" Recipes That Taste Like The Real Thing

Recipes
Food
Nutrition

We all love cheese. And if you don’t love cheese, well, you just haven’t found the right kind for you. If you’re unlucky like me, however, cheese does not like you. Thankfully, we live in 2020, where plant-based cheese recipes are alive and well.

I have been dairy-free for a few years, and cheese is truly the food group I miss the most. As much as we try, we sometimes just can’t get vegan cheese to taste like the real thing. So, I recruited my dairy-loving, cow-consuming friends to be my taste-testers. Their brutal honesty helped me create some “fake” cheese that can actually compete with the real stuff.

Goat "Cheese" Ball
