“When our skin's microbiome isn't intact then our immune system is challenged." – Nadine Artemis
This week we were given the opportunity to chat with Nadine Artemis, the creator of Living Libations, a line of organic and pure renegade beauty products! Nadine is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to health and beauty, and it all stems from her childhood immersed in nature and “mixing things together”. What started as a 9th grade science fair project making perfumes by mixing essential oils, later turned into a lifestyle as her interests carried her through college where she started making her own food and skin care products all while majoring in women’s studies.
By age 22 she had opened up North America’s first full concept aromatherapy store and since then she has written two books: Holistic Dental Care: The Complete Guide to Healthy Teeth and Gums and most recently, Renegade Beauty: Reveal and Revive Your Natural Radiance–Beauty Secrets, Solutions, and Preparations, which offers a comprehensive guide for true health and wellness.
This is the real deal, guys – Nadine knows the science behind her products and she wants to share it with you. We’ll talk the best ingredients for your skin, why sunblock can actually be harmful, things you can do to improve your dental health, and why eating organic and using natural labeled products might not be enough. Be sure to stick with us till the end where Nadine will lead us in her personal practice, a being beauty meditation.
