Are you ready for another great skin care recipe from our Kimberly Smith? This one is so easy: Cranberry Tea Toner.
Kimberly recommends keeping this in a spray bottle in the refrigerator, then refresh your skin after a nice long bath. As always, if you have questions about these recipes, just post a comment and Kimberly will respond.
Cranberry Tea Toner
- 1-2 organic cranberry tea bags (or other you would prefer)

Just drop a good quality organic teabag with no spicy ingredients into a bottle of organic witch hazel. Steep it overnight and the next day, you get a great toner. Incredibly simple!
It’s the Catch 22 of the holidays – everyone wants to take a picture, but the stress is wreaking havoc with our skin. Welcome to the social media equivalent of the advent calendar … for your skin. Starting today, Rejuvena’s own Kimberly Smith will unveil her “Holiday Glow” – daily skin care recipes and tips revealed on our Facebook page. Each product is an easy DIY recipe created by Kimberly.

November is National Diabetes Awareness Month. Food will always be our best medicine, and this is particularly the case with diabetes. Early intervention can stop this potentially debilitating disease in its tracks by making only a few changes in an individual’s eating and lifestyle habits. It is important to note that diabetes is not, in fact, a disease of blood sugar, but it’s actually a disorder of insulin and leptin signaling.
Insulin regulation plays such as an integral role in your health and longevity, that elevated levels are not only symptoms of diabetes, but other diseases as well (heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, peripheral vascular disease, obesity, and cancer).
Foods to Avoid: Sweets, sodas, juices, breads, pasta, cereals, rice, potatoes, and corn. You may also want to avoid or restrict fruit consumption until your blood sugar gets under control.
