How self-care, health and fitness stem from self-love (or at least “self-like”)

In Conscious Beauty, Exercise and Fitness, Mind/Body/Spirit by Robyn Landis0 Comments

A few weeks ago, I posted a photo that my neighbor and friend took of me in my new swimsuit (my first item as a Prana influencer, and I just loved it) as I was headed off to the pool. It happened to be the night that my latest online course registration was ending, so I paired it with a reminder about that, along with a heartfelt sharing about what it means to me to “love your body.” (In essence, that I believe you can love yourself first, love yourself as action of treating yourself lovingly…which nourishes …

In Conscious Beauty, Conscious Consumer by Robyn Landis9 Comments

The sun is a beautiful and powerful source of light, energy and—for many of us—joy. But most of us have to contend with sunscreen when we spend time in the sun, and sunscreens are confusing for many people. We’re urged by most health authorities to use it regularly, yet there are conflicting reports on whether / how / how much / what kind we should be using. As a longtime natural skin and hair product enthusiast and aficionado—and ingredient watchdog—one of the most common questions I get (besides food/exercise- and herb/supplement-related queries!) relates to sunscreen. …
