Girl Talk: DIY Skin and Bodycare (Part 6) … a.k.a., “The Orange Article”

Wow!!! A couple of women actually wrote me and said they can't wait for the next "Color" article in my DIY series. Started out as just something "fun to do" (my excuse to thumb through dozens of photos of lovely ladies 🙂 ), but now, it is a full blown well received series of articles for the blog.

….and of course, I'm always trying to make health and wellness "hip and trendy".

Anyhooz, it seems, with so many beautiful women's photos, so many DIY formulas from so many great bloggers, and so many colors left in the rainbow, this series can go on for a while……..


Bad skin is often a result of imbalances deep within the body, often provoked by what we eat (or don't eat). Bad skin is usually the result or the body's natural process of pushing excessive toxins to the surface.

You have to work from the inside out for good skin. To get more info on this subject, check out my article….
