Does your skin get dry in the winter? Of course it does. It’s winter. Try living out here in the Arizona desert. After Christmas we Phoenicians look less like goddesses and more like a vintage handbag. Seriously– after a full winter of this dryness, my face feels rougher than a Piers Morgan interview with Tonya Harding. (zzzzing!)

Even if you don’t live in drier climates, winter has some surprising negative effects on skin. Our skin starts to feel the

paleo friendly cookie emmy's organics review

Review: paleo-friendly cookies. (No, really.)

Whenever I’m surfing Pinterest and land on something about “paleo-friendly cookies”, my eyes roll legit ALL the way back in my head.
