Good points. I forget that season changes can effect skin conditions and products.

Great to see such lively action in the store. I like the information on video more then just the audio podcasts.

New look, I like this video. All to often I wonder if I'm choosing good products for my skin type.

I've always heard that just plain water is the best facial cleanser. Maybe this doesn't work for oily skin? For me, I hold a hot wash cloth on my face to open the pores, then I place a cold water wash cloth on my face to close the pores. This has worked well for years.

There is allot of great information in this video, I found it going by quickly however. Is there a printable version of the highlights and products one should use for each skin type? It would really help I think to have a list I could print out and take to the store, so I can set up the best system for my face. Does this ring true for anyone else?

@Mama Z Hello, Winnie from Whole Foods here. We don't currently have a brochure that highlights the specific treatments for each skin type - but it's definitely something we can work on. In the meanwhile, if you go to your local store and speak with a Whole Body associate, they should be able to help you pick out the right products for your needs. Also, there's a downloadable PDF of some spa tips on the Whole Body site: http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/wholebody/begood/spa.pdf

You've done it again. I actually started using your mineral fusion when I bought the starter kit, good stuff + it seems to have resolved my skin troubles. If I don't use mineral makeup I general don't use anything, just water, and have found that less is more. Products from before seemed to dry my skin out, but the mineral makeup and water do well.

Wonderful video coverage of a topic which may seem simple but really is not. I also checked out the brochure which is very helpful, and lovely!

Love the vid. Skin can be so troubling, what's more is trying something expensive only to find it isn't working! I hope this advice helpsme narrow the search.

Good work here. I am a huge Fan of some fo the skin care products you carry, and have trouble finding Zia elsewhere. Keep it up.
