Renegade Beauty is really about engaging with the elements, being in contact with nature, and getting back in touch with our bodies again. We need to engage with the water, air, sun, and earth aspects of our lives. The body is alive and its cells and bacteria create billions of points of consciousness besides whats being radiated from our thoughts and heart. The ecology of our bodies is what's allowing our cells, bacteria, and our own selves to thrive. - Nadine Artemis

Modern advice tells you to pile on all the SPF you can when you go outside but what does ancient wisdom say about the benefits of sunbathing, vitamin D absorption, and avoiding toxic chemicals?



In Wellness Force Radio episode 230, world-renowned health and wellness speaker, gifted aromacologist, author of Renegade Beauty: Reveal and Revive Your Natural Radiance and Holistic Dental Care: The Complete Guide to Healthy Teeth and Gums, and Co-Creator of Living Libations, Nadine Artemis, shares whether or not taking Vitamin D supplements is the same as spending time outside in the sun, what steps you can take to end cultural programming of beauty standards for women, and why you should be using oil-based cleansers over soaps or foaming liquids to clean your face.

Listen and learn about the healing powers of natural plants, aromas, and essential oils that you can easily add to your daily beauty routine.

"Essential oils can really tap into our emotions, mind, and physiology in a way that quite frankly is a little bit magical." - Nadine Artemis of @LivingLibations on @wellnessforce Radio episode 230

Renegade Beauty by Nadine ArtemisRethink conventional notions of beauty and wellness, abandon established regimes and commercial products, and embrace your “Renegade” Beauty.

Power Quotes From The Show

"Our flaws in the industrialization of beauty have been highlighted and criticized while supermodels' cheekbones get mythologized."- Nadine Artemis of @LivingLibations on @wellnessforce Radio episode 230

"There's a standard, a message, and images of what "beauty" is. It changes throughout the seasons or by the magazine but it's so deep in our culture and it's growing more because of social media. There are ads and images that we're seeing all the time and we're not even really dissecting them or looking at what's influencing us. Our mission at Living Libations is to really undo that cultural programming. " - Nadine Artemis

"Our skin is designed to be exposed to solar rays; it's our form of photosynthesis and cosmic pollination. We have thousands of vitamin D receptors in our skin including places that don't even see the sun. When we receive the sun's rays through our skin, then we're able to literally fill up our vitamin D receptors. While vitamin D supplements are important, especially for people who live in winter climates, we really need to remember that the skin is designed to be exposed to the sun. We need to re-learn that we can trust this ancient design of our bodies." - Nadine Artemis 

“Essential oils help us to really tap into our own emotions, mind, and physiology in a way that nothing else can. We have the ability to experience plants and herbs through eating them or drinking tea but essential oils just have this other, unique element that quite frankly is a little bit magical." - Nadine Artemis
