What is Self-Love?

Posted by Smita Kishore on

All of this talk about Valentine's Day and Love last week got me thinking: What does it really mean to love thyself? Is it taking a moment to pause and breathe in the middle of a hectic day?

Learning to Be Selfless

Posted by Smita Kishore on

Some of the best papers I’ve written began at 12am and under the pressure of a deadline.

Recently, however, I began to question this way of thinking, which led me upon a quest that at the start felt so important, but in hindsight was shortsighted as my journey was longer than I expected.

Why I Went All Natural

Posted by Smita Kishore on

I started reading a lot about the ingredients in our beauty products, as well as the chemicals in our food, during my sophomore year in college. My curiosity was sparked when the Environmental Working Group (EWG) launched their Skin Deep database in 2004 and when I discovered the Seafood Watch consumer guides...These resources made me more conscious of what I was putting into and onto my body. At first, I monitored my products here and there, but mostly continued using many of the same brands due to a lack of availability of something purer.
