ep. 4: Natalie Davis, Colonic Therapist

We all need healing, whether from a broken heart or a chronic health condition. Join self-help obsessed writer and founder of BeautyBets.com, Elizabeth Dehn, on a weekly spirit journey with the teachers and gurus who are transforming lives in unconventional ways. These modern-day healers will change the way you view the universe—and your ability to heal yourself.

Natalie Davis is the butt of a lot of jokes. A former candida sufferer, she saw five different doctors before finding relief with colon hydrotherapy. Now the founder of Move Colonics, Davis administers warm water using a really big tube to help people flush out the toxins that can cause everything from bloat and constipation to acne and autoimmune diseases. It’s a dirty job but somebody’s got to do it.

What Does Your Skin Say About You?

FACECHART

Thanks to the little visitor that appears on my chin every 28 days, I’ve always known that the skin is the window into our bodies and the health of our organs. But connecting the dots isn’t always easy, seeing as how I prefer to believe my insides are made of spun silk (weak stomach). This visual cheat couldn’t be handier—or more empowering. No more feeling clueless about your skin and disconnected from your body. Oh, it will still be frustrating as h-e-l-l, and you’ll probably want to find a good naturopath, energy healer, acupuncturist, or yoga class, but at least you’ll have a place to start!

XO,
Bets

P.S. Although nothing can do for your skin on the outside what you can do for it on the inside, I swear by One Love Organics Detox + Glow kit to balance troubled skin and restore radiance :

Indie Beauty Week: Stark Skincare

There’s something so joyful about Stark. I felt it in my first email exchange with founder Jessica Lafleur, who’s across between sunshine and wonder woman, what with her work in social sciences, herbalism, fashion marketing, environmentalism. I knew I was doing something good for my skin and my spirit when I tried the Montreal-based brand’s 100-percent-natural products. While I normally do the talking on this blog, Jessica describes her brand better and truer than I could’ve myself:
.
Stark is obsessively natural, simple without being boring, luxurious without being over-the-top, educates and empowers customers, and is made specifically for the needs of a city-dweller’s skin (and aesthetic). Oh, and the products had to look really great in their eco-friendly packaging, because why not make your everyday objects beautiful?

Yes! Yes they should. I also love the brand’s Skin & the City approach. It’s not only witty but incredibly relevant: arming the modern woman with naturally powerful remedies for the pollution, stress, late nights, poor diet and other land mines we face in the urban jungle.
.
Best Bet: If you have combination/oily skin, the Whole Shebang is where it’s at. Stark’s entire skincare regimen at a special price ($110) includes a box of soothing yet powerful delights: a grime-busting grapefruit cleansing balm, blemish-fighting and protecting toner, invigoratingly herb-y serum, and detoxifying green tea mask.

Confirmed: Dairy and Sugar Cause Acne

Happy Monday, y’all! Is everyone sufficiently back in the saddle after last week?

I was still feeling a bit strung out despite a super relaxing holiday, so headed over to Spot Spa in NE Minneapolis for a Grounding Treatment ($60/1 hr): Foot soak, salt scrub, and a full 15 min of reflexology while lying on a bed of hot stones brought me back down to earth.

Confirmed: Dairy and sugar cause acne. Not that there was any doubt. (Well + Good NYC)

Dani chatted up Kate Walsh about her favorite fragrance and ours, Boyfriend.

Emma Stone makes me want red hair and a blue dress—bad. Also note how well the red lipstick works. (We Heart It)

Eye Candy: 2011 Red Carpet Hits and Misses (NY Times)

My horoscopes have never been so spot-on since stumbling upon the AstroTwins. Yes, I believe in this stuff.

FTW: It’s a Brad Brad World, tonight on Bravo. Brad and his gem of a partner Gary (an exec producer on Will & Grace, no less) banter like a witty old married couple.

Totes going to try Rachel McAdams’ easy, overnight trick for beach waves (US Weekly)

What happens when a style + body image expert, sex educator and wellness coach team up? Women take over the world. (Strong, Sexy, Stylish)

Further proof that the Clarisonic is da bomb, and those knock-offs are not (WSJ)

Here’s to more makeunders in 2012. (xojane)
