Starting Fresh

The new year is the perfect time to refresh and reinvigorate your health and wellness plan and set the tone for the coming months. Let’s take this new beginning and clear canvas as an opportunity for growth, self-reflection and improvement. 

At the start of a new year, people are more likely to stay on track with new goals and stay motivated. Did you know that having new goals actually stimulates a dopamine response, that feel-good chemical that our body produces naturally? 

So now is the best time to take advantage of this natural boost and lay down some new tracks of what you would like to accomplish for yourself in the coming months and years. 

Your journey starts now toward a healthier, happier life. Here are some suggestions to get you started:  

Start small

Start with one small thing and feel victorious. Define specific, achievable, and measurable goals. Whether it’s drinking more water or exercising a certain number of times a week, make sure your goal/goals are clear and attainable. 

Achieving a healthier lifestyle can begin with one simple change. Once you establish that one thing it will perpetuate you to do the next thing and so on. 

What one thing would bring you the most dynamic change at this time? What one thing is attainable for you right now? The key is being consistent. Don’t forget to praise yourself for your efforts! Tell yourself how awesome you are and give yourself a high five!

Start your day with some form of movement

We all know the importance of exercise and when it’s freezing cold outside, it can be challenging to stick with your routine. Winter is when you need  movement  the most to support immunity, cardiovascular health, metabolism, and mood. 

Even just a 10-minute walk outside in the sunshine will do the trick and you’ll be getting your vitamin D too! 

Winterize your workouts and be kind to yourself. Opt for slower, more focused workouts and yoga this season. Slow and steady wins the marathon. 

Cultivate stress management tools and stillness

Keep it simple and just do it! It’s a necessary part of creating balance in this fast-paced world we live in. Start with 10 minutes a day and build from there as you become more comfortable. 

This year, make it a point to create this incredibly healthy habit. Did you know that If you do something consistently for 40 days you can establish a new habit that will last? 

If you need some support to get you started I would be happy to help. Simply email me at I can answer any questions you may have and offer suggestions. I am a certified meditation teacher. 

There is a wonderful program on the Gaia channel called Rewired with Dr. Joe Dispenza that will help you integrate the importance of stress management. I encourage you to watch and absorb the information because it will help you understand what happens to your body and mind under stress and offers healthy ways to trigger the relaxation response. It also explains the physiology of the positive changes that occur during meditation. After watching this program you’ll feel inspired to continue your meditation practice or start one.

I hope your new year is off to a good start at a medium pace. Let’s take this time to appreciate the stillness in the season of winter while we start implementing baby steps toward our goals of health and wellness. 

Everyday is a new opportunity to do it better than yesterday! Cheers to you! 

Wishing you all the best in health, peace and love, 💙

Every individual possesses a unique set of talents and abilities that make them truly unique. These special qualities are what I like to refer to as superpowers. Whether it’s an innate gift for empathy, creativity, problem-solving, or anything else, your superpower is what sets you apart and can give you a sense of purpose.

In this blog, we want to inspire and empower you to discover and embrace your personal superpower/s so you can live a fulfilling life with a sense of purpose and perhaps even make a positive impact in the world.

Unveiling Your Superpower:

Your superpower is not something that can be taught or learned, it’s something that comes naturally to you, a part of your authentic self, and usually shines through in everything you do.

Take a moment to reflect on what makes you come alive and feel inspired. What do you excel at effortlessly, and what brings you joy and fulfillment? 

It could be your ability to connect with others on a deep level, your knack for problem-solving, your creative flair, or your unwavering optimism. Embrace these unique qualities as your superpower and celebrate them. 

Oftentimes we tend to judge ourselves and see our gifts as a fault or negative trait. All it takes is a shift in one’s perspective to see through a different lens, rather, one of appreciation for these unique traits.  

The Power of Self-Appreciation

Appreciating and embracing your superpower is an essential step towards self-love and feeling worthy. Recognize that your superpower is not only valuable to yourself but also to others. 

It is a gift that allows you to navigate through life with purpose and perhaps even make a meaningful contribution. Cultivate a sense of gratitude for your superpower, for it is a reflection of your authentic self.

Discovering Your Path

Your superpower can guide you toward your true calling and the path that aligns with your natural gifts. Take the time to explore different career opportunities, hobbies, or volunteer work that allow you to fully utilize your superpower.

When you find activities that resonate with your innate abilities, you’ll experience a deep sense of fulfillment and flow.

Follow your passion and pursue opportunities that allow you to express your superpower authentically.

Discovering your superpower involves self-reflection and exploration to find your unique qualities. Here are some steps you can take to uncover your Superpower:

1. Reflect on your passions

Take time to identify the activities, hobbies, or subjects that truly excite and energize you. What are the things you enjoy doing the most? Your superpower often aligns with your passions.

2. Identify your strengths

Consider your natural abilities and talents. What are you good at without much effort? What skills or qualities have others acknowledged in you? Your superpower often lies in these innate strengths.

3. Seek feedback

Reach out to friends, family, or mentors and ask them what they perceive as your strengths and unique qualities. Sometimes, others can offer valuable insights about your superpower that you may not recognize in yourself.

4. Embrace authenticity

Embrace who you truly are without trying to conform to societal expectations or norms. Your superpower comes from your authentic self. Be true to your values, interests, and beliefs.

5. Pay attention to moments of flow 

Notice the activities or tasks where you lose track of time and feel completely absorbed. These moments often indicate that you are utilizing your superpower.

Nurturing Self-Love

As you embark on this journey of self-discovery and embracing your superpower,

remember to practice self-love and self-care. Treat yourself with kindness, compassion, patience, and non-judgment.

Celebrate your successes, no matter how small, and acknowledge the unique qualities that make you who you are. Surround yourself with positivity, inspiring individuals, and nurturing environments that support your growth and encourage you to utilize your superpower.


Embracing your superpower is not about seeking external validation or comparing yourself to others. It’s about recognizing your own inherent value and appreciating the gifts that make you extraordinary.

Everyone has a superpower waiting to be unleashed. So, take a moment to reflect on your innate gifts, discover your path, and embark on a journey of self-love and purpose!

Organic skin care products use natural ingredients that are safer and healthier than synthetic chemicals found in conventional products.

Did you know American brands can use the terms clean, all natural and organic on their packaging with no regulation? As more of us look to lead a life with fewer chemicals in it, our quest for clean products is gaining popularity. What makes a product clean and organic?

Do you know what organic skin care is?

Organic: Ingredients grown without the involvement of pesticides, artificial fertilizers and any other synthetic ingredients. Something that exists in nature and has not been modified by chemistry done in a laboratory.

According to the standard of organic law, a product has to be between 95-100 % organic and chemical-free. You can find lots of certified organic companies and lots of companies that use all organic ingredients but choose not to go through the long and arduous process of becoming certified organic because it is an expensive and complex process. There are even some certified organic products that have ingredients that are questionable. So what it all comes down to is reading and understanding what’s on your product labels. 

Organic skin care products should be formulated with certified organic raw materials strictly from nature. Here are some tips to look out for to ensure the quality and integrity of a product.

1-Trust the company that you are buying from

Learn about their ethics, standards and mission statement in order to build trust and confidence to know that what you are buying are in fact high-quality products.

Organic skin care is a good example of a category of products where you need to be careful about the company that sells it. Some companies use harmful chemicals in their products along with organic ingredients, which can be misleading. The chemicals can have a negative impact on your skin’s health.

2-Beware of marketing lingo

Companies are always looking for key marketing words or phrases that are popular and relevant for the times. These marketing strategies are constantly changing according to what is in demand at the moment. 

Because of the growing demand for clean personal care products these days, there are some key things to look out for.

Examples of this are: All natural, green, healthy, clean, non-toxic, organic, eco friendly etc…

The truth is there are lots of companies touting that their products are clean, all natural and organic but if you read the ingredients you will see in fact, that isn’t so. 

Unfortunately at this time there are no laws against this false advertisement, so it is up to us to make sure we understand what is actually in the products we are purchasing. If you are ever unsure about an ingredient you can always refer to the Environmental Working Group. Just type in the ingredient or brand name and you will find your answer. An amazing resource! 

3-Know The Never List

According to extensive research “The Never List” are known ingredients that can cause health issues anywhere from allergic reactions to reproductive issues and cancer.  

I always stress the importance of becoming a label detective so that you can be informed as to what you are putting on or inside your body. Remember the skin is our largest organ that absorbs everything we slather on our body! It’s the things that we do every day that accumulate and can have an impact on us, be it good or bad. Becoming a label detective is the first step in truly taking charge of your health. 

Remember,  it’s up to us to take control of what we introduce onto our skin and into our homes. Familiarize yourself with safe ingredients, read your labels and do your own research. 

You will discover there are tons of products out there that are formulated and composed of mostly synthetic ingredients with just a few organic ingredients in the mix. If you read the labels on these products you’ll find most of the ingredients difficult to pronounce, which brings me to introduce to you “The Never List”. 

What’s in The Never List?

Side note, when creating Chiki Buttah Products we prohibit the use of these harmful chemicals on this list:

  1. Benzalkonium chloride
  2. BHA and BHT
  3. Coal tar
  4. Ethylenediaminetetraacetic Acid EDTA
  5. Ethanolamines (MEA/DEA/TEA)
  6. Formaldehyde
  7. Hydroquinone
  8. Methylisothiazolinone and Methylchloroisothiazolinone
  9. Oxybenzone
  10. Parabéns (Methyl-,isobutyl-, proply-)
  11. Phthalates
  12. Polyethylene glycol (peg compounds)
  13. Sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium laureth sulfate (SLS and SLES)
  14. Synthetic flavor and fragrance
  15. Toluene
  16. Triclosan and triclocarbon

You can keep this list as a reference and check your labels to see if any of these ingredients are lurking in your products. Again if you are unsure about something just check it with the EWG skin deep link.

Why choose clean, all natural and organic skin care

My philosophy is the more informed we are, the better choices we can make in regards to our health and well-being. 

Personal care products are some of the most unregulated and toxic products on the market. We must be diligent and open our eyes to the truth and be proactive to make a difference in our own health and the health of our loved ones.

Please feel free to share this information so we can cultivate more awareness on this subject. 

Chiki Buttah is looking out for you! We got you covered in truly clean and organic products! 

Wishing you all the best in health, peace and love, 

Kim Keeshin 💙

Every season poses challenges for your skin. Try these tips to feel confident that your summer skin care routine is golden!

Summer is one of my favorite seasons. I love the long summer days, outdoor activities, poolside, beach time, refreshing summer recipes, grilling and so much more! 

While we are having all that summer fun, there is also more heat, sweat, and dehydration. It’s no secret that every season poses challenges for our skin so it is important to have a few tips and tricks for the season so you can feel confident that your skin care routine is working for you no matter what season we are in.

Here are some things you can incorporate this summer to keep your skin hydrated, balanced and glowing!

Summer Skin Care Tip #1

Use chemical-free SPF. This is the most important thing you can do to protect your skin from too much sun exposure. Even when it’s cloudy, make sure and apply an all-natural tinted SPF 30-50 to your face, neck and decollete.

My pick: Raw Elements tinted SPF 30. If you are out in the sun all day, you should reapply every few hours. Raw Elements also makes a non-tinted SPF that you can use for the body.

Important tip: Remember most commercial sunscreens are full of toxic chemicals so please please please stay clean and chem free when it comes to sunscreen!

Summer Skin Care Tip #2

Wear a wide brim hat and sunglasses. Wearing a hat and sunglasses will shade your face and minimize damage caused by the sun’s rays, especially in the high heat of the day. This is a great way to avoid sun spots from showing up in the future. 

Summer Skin Care Tip #3

Wear less makeup. Makeup will clog your pores and with the added heat and sweat can cause a build-up of bacteria which leads to breakouts. Let your natural beauty shine!

Summer Skin Care Tip #4

Exfoliate. Use a gentle, all-natural exfoliating product to remove the buildup of dead skin so that your pores can breathe and skin can glow. Exfoliate every few days and follow up with a serum and light moisturizer (if needed). My pick: Eraorganics Manuka honey walnut scrub.

Summer Skin Care Tip #5

Apply an everyday face serum. A good serum is great for replenishing and adding vitamins back to your skin. It will also aid in creating a protective barrier for your skin to ward off bacteria and keep your face from breaking out. Try our Healing Hemp Face Serum. It’s best to use your serum just after you wash your face 2x daily.

Chiki Buttah Healing Face Serum

Summer Skin Care Tip #6

Drink water and replenish with electrolytes. Higher temperatures and more time outdoors lead to internal dehydration which can result in headaches, dizzy spells and drier skin! Drink plenty of filtered water throughout the day. Make sure and incorporate good quality trace minerals.

Important tip: To stay well hydrated we need more than just water, that’s where trace minerals come into play. My pick: Beam Minerals. They also have a mineral spray that you can use to spray your face and hair to replenish lost minerals to keep your skin glowing and hair shining. 

Summer Skin Care Tip #7

Homemade replenishing face mask. Treat your skin to a luxurious and inexpensive mask that you can make with items you have in the refrigerator.

Try my favorite creation: Avocado, yogurt and Manuka honey mask.

Mix together the avocado, yogurt and manukau honey. Apply for 1/2 hour. Rinse.

This mask will transform your skin! The yogurt has a mild exfoliating quality and will also help balance your skin’s PH by feeding it with healthy flora. The Manuka honey is antibacterial, anti-fungal and is a superb humectant that will attract lots of moisture into the skin. Avocados are loaded with antioxidants and minerals and can gently exfoliate your skin to unclog pores. You can use this mask 1-3 times a week.

Summer Skin Care Tip #8

Wash your face morning and night. Make sure you cleanse your skin 2x daily with a mild face cleanser. Try Chiki Clean Aloe Cream Cleanser. Aloe is the main ingredient in our face wash and it’s perfect for soothing the skin in the summer.

 chiki clean

A very important tip: When washing your face use only lukewarm water, as hot water can cause inflammation and strip your skin’s natural oils and can cause irritation. Always follow up with your serum and a touch of moisturizer (if needed).

I hope you try one or all of my summer skin care tips and feel confident about your skincare routine this summer.

Remember it is also important to nourish yourself with lots of fresh fruits, veggies and clean protein. Check out your local farmer’s markets this season. You’ll not only be supporting the farmers but also eating local foods that are in season and are the most nutritious! 

Lastly, don’t forget to take some time to enjoy all that this beautiful season has to offer!

Wishing you all the best in health, peace and love,

With the end of 2021 in sight, Looking back I think we can safely say that we have all endured many challenges, changes and transformation. As we look ahead to 2022 let’s try and meet the new year with fresh eyes and the focus on opportunities for new beginnings. Let’s try to meet this new year with a  sense of hope moving toward a new normal as we navigate our lives with more confidence, ease and way less fear.

From the inside out: Health and wellness trends you should try in 2022

I think the key to feeling confident and empowered is through taking care and taking charge of our health and wellness by looking after our mental, physical and emotional well-being. We all have to start exactly where we are with no judgments. It is in the simple incremental things that you do and incorporate daily that add up into the big picture. 

I’d like to offer a list of wellness trends that are on the rise for 2022 to help get you started. 

This list is meant to inspire you rather than overwhelm you, so relax, take a breath and allow new and fresh ideas to wash over you.

As you read the list, tune in to yourself and see which ones inspire, resonate or spark your curiosity. 

For now, enjoy and imagine the possibilities of a new year and a new you!

Kim’s list of health and wellness trends to start in 2022

1. Virtual fitness

These days it is nice to have the option of exercising at home. There are so many fun videos to choose from, the possibilities are endless! 

5, 10 or 30 minute video for any fitness level in many different workout types at your fingertips in the comfort of your own home. Take the plunge and just get started and you will soon adopt a new highly addictive healthy habit! Even if you just do 10 minutes a day you are on your way to a healthier you!

Do a quick search on YouTube. There are so many videos with virtual fitness routines!

2. Breathing techniques

You would be surprised at how practicing focused breathing techniques can quickly change your body, mind and emotions. By sitting in a comfortable chair and practicing a simple technique called the box breath for 5 minutes, you can reset your entire system. There are many resources, also on Youtube, for trying all kinds of breath techniques which are very effective in calming the nervous system and emotions. 

Box Breathing

Step 1: Breathe in counting to four slowly. Feel the air enter your lungs.

Step 2: Hold your breath for 4 seconds. 

Step 3: Slowly exhale through your mouth for 4 seconds.

Step 4: Hold the exhale for 4 seconds: Repeat steps 1 to 4 until you feel re-centered.

3. Mental fitness (emotional freedom)

Meditation is the key to mental fitness. It is like lifting weights for your mind. The more you practice the stronger you become. With consistent practice you can train yourself to be able to redirect the current of your thoughts and navigate away from negative thoughts. 

Meditation will also strengthen your ability to quiet the mind with more ease. With consistent practice you will begin to condition your mind to respond at your will and command. Sounds good right? 

All you have to do is start and be consistent just like working out, after some time you will start to see the positive changes. There are loads of meditation apps that can help you stay on track. We all need support and coaching at times and the apps are like having a virtual coach that will help you not only get started but also stay on track. It’s like training wheels until you are able to ride on your own. We all have to start somewhere and this is an extremely effective tool!

Here are a few of the top meditation apps:

1. Calm

2. Ten Percent Happier

3. Headspace

4. Buddhify

Download one now and get started today!

4. Self-care

Self-care is looking after yourself physically, mentally and emotionally. It is filling your cup up with an activity that raises your energy levels and brings you into alignment with your center and true essence. 

Try this exercise: Write down a list of things that you would like to do for yourself that would be restorative, replenishing, healing or just fun! It could be a bath, massage, yoga class, reading a good book, horseback riding, taking a dance class etc…

Free your mind and allow yourself to indulge. Add to your list whatever it is you can imagine. Now look at your list and pick something/s that you can do right now and incorporate into your life that will recharge your batteries and make you feel good. 

Self- care is necessary for creating balance in our busy lives. It’s taking a break from all the many roles we play for our family, friends and community. Take some time to unplug and tune in to that still part inside of yourself that reconnects you with the essence of who you truly are. Things that make you go ahhhhhhh… 😱

5. Gentler workouts

You don’t have to work out hard to make a difference!

Let’s face it, most of us are not in our 20’s anymore and we can let go of the version of work outs we used to do and adopt  workouts that feel more appropriate for this phase of life. There is no one size fits all. 

Listen to your body and do what feels right and feels good. There are so many different kinds of workouts these days. Let go of your old videos and find something new. Youtube is a great resource for this. 

One of my favorite channels is by Maddie Lymburner.

These workouts will kick your but in the most gentle way! Check out her app too. It’s a great tool to stay on track with a virtual coach. Just do it! 💪

6. Emotional Wellness

Our emotions are part of the human experience, we ARE emotional beings. That is a good thing, except when our emotions start to rule our lives and we lose a sense of control. Emotions can be like a ride on a rollercoaster. 

There are practices that can help navigate through our emotions, helping us to better understand the underpinnings and be able to then heal the triggers that stir these emotions. 

Emotions are like clouds passing. If we adopt practices that can help calm the emotions, we have a better opportunity to move through them with more ease, bringing one back to a neutral, natural state of mind. 

Some practices and healing modalities that help with balancing overactive emotions are:

1. Yoga

2. Meditation

3. Walking outside in fresh air

4. Breathing techniques

5. Holographic Repatterning (look this one up for advanced healing)

6. Dancing 

7. Digital detox

Are you in need of a social media cleanse? Are you ruled by your electronics? It’s time to set some boundaries so you can take back control. Step off the hamster wheel of checking your phone, computer, social media etc…and allow yourself to tune into the natural rhythm of nature and the universe. 

Tap into the infinite creative space around you and allow for new thoughts, inspirations and ideas to come through. You can’t do that if you are constantly checking your phone! Start with a few days and see how you feel. 

Make sure to incorporate a meditative practice while detoxing so you can feel the deeper health benefits with more clarity. When you return to your regular digital routine you will have a fresh perspective and a little more control.

8. Simplify

Some wisdom that I learned long ago is to “make my NOT to do list!” We, as a society, tend to fill our list with so many things that we end up always feeling defeated because of our unrealistic goals! 

Begin by scaling back and prioritizing the most important things and simplify your list so that you can feel victorious every day.This is much better for your mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. It’s also a great way to keep yourself from feeling rushed and stressed all the time.

Stress weakens our immune system! Practice simplifying to keep the stress at bay each day.

I hope this list inspires and helps you to imagine new ideas and healthy things to try. Your power is in showing up every day to meet your practice, whatever that may be. The practice is in your commitment and persistence. And, always remember practice makes progress! 

I’d like to wish you all a safe and fun New Year Holiday weekend. Then, let 2022 be about taking care of you! 💙

Wishing you all the best in health, peace and love,

Face wash is one of the daily essentials for a healthy, youthful skin. So look for a clean face wash with all-natural ingredients and a ph balance between 5-7.

There is a thin layer on the outer skin called the acid mantle. This mantle is a very fine, slightly acidic film on the surface of human skin acting as a barrier to bacteria, viruses and other potential contaminants that might penetrate the skin. Sebum is secreted by the sebaceous gland and when mixed with perspiration becomes the acid mantle. 

When products are too alkaline (high PH), it strips this acid mantle away leaving the skin dry, irritated and vulnerable.

The desirable neutral range for PH level is 4.5 to 7. Having skin that is too alkaline is more common than overly acidic skin (low PH level) because most soap is generally alkaline with a high PH of between 9-11. This high alkalinity is detrimental because it depletes your skin of vital, natural fats.

This is the foundation of many skin disorders, like psoriasis and eczema. And that’s why your face wash is so important.

What is the role of the acid mantle?

In a nutshell, this is what the acid mantle does:

The acid mantle on your skin is not only affected by the skin care products you use, but also by your diet, and environmental factors.

Fundamental tip to restore your skin’s acid mantle

Face wash is one of the daily essentials for a healthy, youthful skin. So look for a clean face wash with all-natural ingredients and a ph balance between 5-7.

Using properly PH balanced clean products on your skin will never strip your skin of it’s outer protective layer. Many people are accustomed to a foaming soap cleanser and like the feeling of being squeaky clean after they wash their face. But, this tends to be irritating to the skin and can cause skin problems down the road. I find that cream cleansers work better to keep the PH of the skin more balanced.

Once you disrupt the skin’s protective mantle, it is difficult to get that PH balance back to where it needs to be. Your skin will reflect this imbalance through the way that it looks and feels. If your skin’s complexion is lacking luster, feels dry with rough patches or is irritated, then this is a good indication that your PH is out of balance. Using an organic face wash and moisterizer is going to help you restore your skin’s pH.

Prime ingredients of an effective face wash

Here are a few key ingredients in face wash that make it work so well. These are:

 1. Aloe – It’s known to soothe irritated skin and contains aloin, a natural depigmenting compound that has been known to lighten dark spots. Additionally, aloe moisturizes the skin, slows down the signs of aging, fights acne, fades blemishes, cleanses the skin and provides some exfoliation.

2. Calendula extract – It’s nourishing benefits help to plump the surface of the skin to give you tighter, more supple skin almost instantly. The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties help to protect your precious collagen and elastin.

3. Green tea extract – This ingredient can help improve your skin’s natural moisture, fight acne, unclog pores, and reduce inflammation that can make your face look puffy. It also contains catechins, which are antioxidants that help protect the skin. It also has anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and astringent properties which makes it a potent beauty buddy.

4. Neroli – It has antimicrobial, antifungal and antioxidant properties. It is helpful for reducing acne breakouts and skin irritations. Neroli contains citral, a chemical known to regenerate skin cells. Lastly, neroli oil helps to improve skin resilience, giving it awesome anti-aging properties.

5. Castor oil – This amazing ingredient can help even out your skin tone making your face appear brighter and younger. It refreshes and gives the skin a natural glow, narrows pores, removes dirt and deeply cleanses while reducing inflammation. Lastly, the fatty acids in castor oil can promote the growth of healthy skin tissue.

One thing that you can do now to be pro active in taking better care of your skin is to get yourself some PH strips and test the products that you are using.

Make sure they fall in the range of 4.5-7. That way you will know exactly which products you will need to replace to stay in the proper range. Pay attention to your skin after you use your products. Your skin will tell you what it needs. You simply have to tune in and know the signs to look for.

Some signs of an unbalanced PH level:

I can’t say enough about the importance of using organic, chem free products. Commercial products are full of chemicals that can not only throw off your skins PH balance but can also cause so many other health related issues such as: allergies, hormonal disturbance, inflammation, respiratory issues etc… If you haven’t made the switch, now is the time to take control of your skin and health overall. 

Did you know that the skin is the largest eliminatory organ on our body? Did you know that whatever you put on your skin, 60% of it will get absorbed directly into your bloodstream? This means that it bypasses the digestive process so the liver cannot assist in eliminating the toxins. No bueno!

Keep your skin care simple, chem-free and clean and use your PH strips as a guide. Feel good about the product choices you are making. Information is power and learning these tips and tricks will keep you inspired to try new things to support the health of you and your skin. When your skin is happy, it’s a good sign that you are doing something right! 

Wishing you all the best in health, peace and love,

Here are my skin tips for this season! Remember to always take extra care of your skin during seasonal changes. We are now in the season of Fall and with that brings a change in the air that can  affect the moisture in your skin. Therefore, your skin needs increased moisture and gentle exfoliation to keep dullness at bay and help maintain your radiant glow.

Remember to wash your face 2 x daily and use a mild all natural exfoliant every few days to keep your skin smooth. Then, look for products that can balance the skin tone and act to hydrate and soften your skin.

We have just the thing to help you maintain that beautiful glow!

Looking for the best moisturizer for dry skin? Reach for these

Our dynamic duo is the best moisturizer for dry skin and will protect your skin from the elements while deeply nourishing and replenishing essential vitamins that will keep your skin looking it’s radiant best! Remember hydrated skin is beautiful skin!

Beauty is health. Health is beauty.

We would like to also acknowledge October is Breast Cancer awareness month. Let’s be proactive and feel empowered to insure our breast health by making it a self care ritual to do breast massage after a bath or shower. Massage is a great way to get the lymph and blood circulating, releasing blockages and bringing fresh nutrients to an area.

Our breasts  are ever fluctuating and can harden and develop nodules, which is why it is so important to get the blood circulating specifically to this area. You can keep your breasts healthy with just a few minutes of breast massage daily using Chiki Buttah.

With a long background as a massage therapist, I created Chiki Buttah with the intention of using it as a medium for my massage clients. A proven winner!

This product is perfect not only for moisturizing your body but also for your daily breast massage! It’s the best moisturizer for dry skin. It’s all organic so nothing toxic and no chemicals which is extremely important for maintaining not only our breast health but overall health!

How to massage your skin

1- Scoop out a quarter size of your favorite Chiki Buttah, rub palms together and begin in a circular motion using the tips of your fingers to stimulate the blood flow and break up any lumps or hard spots.

2 – While massaging, focus your attention and intention to bring fresh blood flow to your entire breast area.

3- Continue for about 3 minutes or more. 

4 – Take note after, how do your breasts feel? 

You will find that they feel warmer, smoother and if your breasts could smile they would be smiling. 🙂

Bonus tip for the Fall

Besides looking for the best moisturizer for dry skin, this fall you can also reach for a natural lash and brow moisturizer.

We have an exciting new product announcement! It’s here! Happy Lash -n- Brow!! An all organic conditioning and growth serum for healthy lashes and brows.

I have tried so many lash serums in the past and yes, some worked but at what cost to my health over time?

I needed something to combat dull and brittle lashes and brows. Just as we care for our skin so must we care for our hair and well, lashes and brows are hair right?

So I decided to create my own product, something that not only grew longer and thicker lashes and brows but also conditioned them! Happy lash does just that! And it’s made with all organic ingredients!

Remember to take before and after pics so you can see the contrast. You will be amazed at the results! Please share your pics with us, we would love to see your lashes. 😉

Wishing you all the best in health, peace and love,

It’s always a good idea to take extra care of your skin whenever we are transitioning into a new season. Spring is around the corner and will be here before you know it! Let’s shed that winter skin and make room for that fresh glowing skin that we’ve all been pining for. 

6 Important skin care tips for the Spring

Try these 6 tried and true methods that will keep you on top of your skin care game. Ready, get set and glow

1. Exfoliate Your Skin

This will remove the dead layer of skin that’s been lingering from the winter months.

Make sure to use something mild and all natural. I prefer to grind up adzuki beans and add it to my face wash every 3 days. It makes a great DIY scrub!  Make sure to first heat the adzuki beans in a pan to remove the moisture and then grind them into a powder. You can keep them in an airtight container next to your face wash.

2. Lightly moisturize

For the spring and summer season you may want to go a little lighter on your moisturizers and serums. You can still enjoy the healing benefits without slathering it on too thick.

3. Apply an all natural SPF even on cloudy days

Make sure to read your labels and use something without all the harsh chemicals. 

4. Exercise regularly

This will help detox your skin and  increase blood flow, which helps maintain healthy skin cells.

5. Stay well hydrated

Make sure to drink plenty of filtered water and herbal teas. Also, include a good quality trace mineral supplement. Hydration is skin food!

6. Wash your face

Make sure you wash your face twice a day, especially in the spring. When spring has sprung and everything is exploding with life, there is an increase of airborne pollen that adheres to your skin and hair and can cause allergic reactions, not only sneezing and sniffles but also skin rashes and hives. Washing your face helps to remove the pollen and keep your skin from breaking out.

If you’re looking for an easy but effective skin care routine try our Dynamic DuoChiki Face and Healing Hemp Face Serum together or separately. Yes, the face serum is great for men, too!

Healthy Choices for a Healthy You

This January, we at Chiki Buttah Products are excited to share healthy lifestyle habits, and how we support local Austin businesses and combine these activities with our own health-driven products to promote a healthy you!


Product Highlight: Chiki Chill Balm a healthy you

Hitting the gym or taking a jog are great lifestyle choices, but they can have strenuous effects on your body. Jogging can put extra pressure on knee, hip and ankle joints, causing soreness and inflammation. Many activities at the gym, such as weight lifting, can have the same effect on the entire body. Not to mention, when we push ourselves physically, there can be muscle strain and pain that comes with it.

Our Chiki Chill Balm is the perfect relief for pain and ailments brought on by these kinds of activities. Packaged in an easy-to-use twist up tube, Chiki Chill can be applied whenever or wherever there is tension, pain or discomfort.

Here are some of the ingredients, and short explanations of why they work so well:



Arnica has been embraced for centuries as a natural healing agent. The oil made from its herbaceous yellow flowers have been used to treat muscle tension and various traumatic injuries such as bruising, swelling and broken bones.



Absorbed through the skin, magnesium oil has been believed to calm the nervous system, relaxing muscles in the body.


Essential Oils

Our aromatic blend of essential oils including plai, ginger, peppermint, cinnamon, camphor, cajeput, rosemary and wintergreen will increase circulation in tired, aching muscles. Just a whiff of this therapeutic balm will ease a headache, open up sinuses and even help relieve nausea.
