With that job description, it’s not a surprise that Thomas has a dreamy hippie skin-care routine. She also believes in maintaining daily routines outside the bathroom. “Creating your own ritual practice is easy,” Thomas told the Cut. “Start with identifying what brings you serenity each day. Treat yourself to a moment of silence; curiosity seeds your consciousness when the mind can be still.”
Self-care isn't about material things, it's a state of mind. But certain moments can feel even more special with the right combination of essential oils, luxurious butters and scents of relaxation. Latham Thomas, wellness maven, beloved doula and founder of Mama Glow, has put together a product line that's the perfect companion to your self-care practices. She created a collection of five products for women (moms, single ladies, kids — anyone can use this line!) that come with a Ritual Guide to Glow Time booklet too with suggestions on how to use the products and some new self-care rituals to indulge in.

“The vision wasn’t just about creating products. It was about inviting women to celebrate themselves and step into self-care as a practice,” says Thomas. “The goal is to transform behavior. We really don’t want women to think, ‘I’m going to hurry up, lather this on my skin and get out the door.’ I want to help people get back to the practices my grandmother did. I would watch her brush her hair and braid it at night, and carefully put cream on her skin. When she passed away, her skin was smoother than mine. The older generations did things we just don’t do anymore, and we should.”
Alicia Overton of Good Medicine
The co-owner (one of five women!) of the desert-born botanical skincare brand on the best oil and butter to use, and why you shouldn’t underestimate your skin’s intelligence.
"From the high Tibetan plateau to the gold leaf making factories of Kyoto, we travel to the wild deserts of Southern Utah and into the Good Medicine Beauty Lab; where wild botanicals are blended with essential oils, fruits and vegetables into artisanal formulations.
Led by five women — Karen Hudson, Cris Coombs, Alicia Overton, Lara Wright and Whitney Dunn — the third generation family company stepped into the world of naturals and clean beauty before it was even a thing back in the 1960s. Nurtured by extreme climates, sunlight and rain, botanicals like juniper berries and larrea were plucked and gathered by hand, then brought home to undergo extraction and bottling. The idea was to transfer these plants’ ability to thrive in intense conditions to skincare solutions..." Read The Article

My Favourite Summer Beauty Essentials For Healthy Glowing Skin Posted by Sarah
"When it comes to healthy and glowing skin, there is no doubt that adequate nutrition is primordial. However, there are a few other factors to consider as well. What you put on your skin, for example, is just as important if you want to avoid intoxicating your body from the outside in (more on that: here). Besides, in the summer time, given how strong the sun can get in certain parts of the world, it becomes even more essential to protect and nurture your skin. Hence the topic of today’s post: my favourite summer beauty essentials for a healthy & glowing skin...." Read The Article

Pamper, Protect & Restore Your Skin: Posted by Trisha
"First up, is this amazing Ashes cleanser from Good Medicine. At first glance, I thought this cleanser would be like other grain-like cleansers I’ve used in the past, but it isn’t. These grains, when wet, bubble, fizz, and thicken to create a moisturizing cleanser. When it first touched my skin..." Read The Review
