Why You Should Wash Your Face With Oil

Why You Should Wash Your Face With Oil By Denise Prichard Are you fed up with expensive face care products, layering chemical after chemical on your delicate skin? What if I told you that the secret to perfect skin has been sitting in your house all along?
As a former acne sufferer, I’ve been through tons of prescriptions, ranging from pills to harsh creams. When my skin was finally clear, it was so sensitive from the benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid that I could barely go outside without feeling like my face was on fire. 
I live in Arizona, where it’s pretty much swimming weather nine months out of the year, and due to my high activity level, I knew I needed to find a better solution. I then stumbled upon this magical concoction that not only cleared up my skin, but is inexpensive, easy-to-use and makes your skin glow.
It’s called the "Oil Cleansing Method," and it will replace your current face wash and moisturizer.
Wait a minute.

Cabbage & Apple Slaw w/ Tahini Dressing

Cabbage & Apple Slaw with Tahini Dressing
Using Tahini I’ve been enjoying tahini most often in salad dressings, like the one in this cabbage slaw. I find that pairing it with something sweet like maple syrup or apples creates an irresistible combo that grabs hold of my appetite and keeps me wanting more.
Of course, a little tahini in hummus is a must, too. But it also can add a mysterious and mouthwatering depth to smoothies. (Just know that a little goes a long way.)
This experiment in training my taste buds to enjoy something new has me wondering what else I might learn to love. Sardines? Seaweed? Hot peppers?

4 heaping cups thinly sliced green cabbage

1 medium Gala apple, cored and cut into matchsticks

For the dressing:
3 tablespoons tahini (sesame seed butter)
