Body Care for Every Body

Elevate Your Daily Routine – Head to Toe!

Routine or ritual? Most of us have an established body care process, even if we don’t realize it! 

And since we’re already spending time tending to our heads, shoulders, knees, and toes, why not find small, simple ways to elevate the experience? 

Our team of Wellness Experts share three easy steps that can help you turn your routine body care into an act of self-care – here’s how:

See the Opportunity

When it’s time to do any type of personal hygiene task, don’t forget that this is an opportunity to focus on you. From mindfully dry brushing your skin to flossing your teeth, you can create moments of calm and relaxation that would otherwise be rushed through.

Choose Body & Earth-Friendly Ingredients

Everything ends up somewhere… and that’s true of the products we put onto our bodies! Lotions, oils, creams, and makeup can be absorbed by our skin. And, when we dispose of products, they can ultimately end up being absorbed into our water supply. Choosing natural, nourishing ingredients is good for our individual health and for our planet.

Follow Your Senses

For thousands of years, people have enjoyed the physical and emotional benefits of aromatherapy, and more now than before, aromatherapy is a huge element to skin and self-care products. It’s no secret that lavender oil can be very calming and relaxing, while peppermint or citrus are uplifting and invigorating. If a certain scent makes you feel good, follow your nose and bring more of that scent into your self-care routine. 

Wondering What Products Are Best?

Here are a few of our favorites, for Every Body! 

Bath Care: Great for the whole family! Alaffia body wash and bubble bath are made with ethically traded ingredients, sulfate-free and clean. Their Everyday Shea Body Wash is handcrafted with neem extract, lavender oil, and unrefined shea butter from cooperatives in West Africa to gently cleanse away pollutants while nourishing and protecting your skin.

Body Care: Does your deodorant give you 100% performance with 0% toxins? Hume Supernatural deodorant is a highly effective deodorant that not only smells amazing but also works. Born from the desert, where the natural flora has rich chemistry that sustains, nourishes, and protects life. Hume was drawn to these plants for their unique ability to work together and adapt in the face of diversity—something our bodies need to do throughout the day. So, they created smarter formulas that combine the natural intelligence of these plants with the insights of modern technology.

Facial Care: Upgrade your facial care ritual by swapping your regular face wash to cleansing milk for a nourishing experience. Evan Healy has created a gentle cleansing formula to nurture and purify your unique skin condition. The aromas and velvety texture of their cleansers turn the action of cleansing into a therapeutic ritual. Begin and end your day with a gentle, rhythmic facial massage, immersed in the fragrant and healing embrace of nature.

Hair Care: Want hair care that is 100% Vegan and 0% Fuss? Then Acure Hair Care is just right for you. Acure Shampoos and conditioners provide lasting moisture leaving hair soft, manageable, and ready to rock. They are completely free of parabens, sulfates, and mineral oils and of course, they are cruelty-free.

Oral Care: Have you tried toothpaste tablets? Maybe it’s time to switch to natural, sustainable & conscientious toothpaste with low-impact, zero-waste oral care like Georganics. These mouthwash tablets are made from entirely natural and non-toxic ingredients. The Fluoride, Glycerin, and SLS-free formula helps to restore a healthy pH balance to your mouth, maintain good oral health and freshen your breath. Flavored with organic Peppermint oil, these eco-friendly tablets, that you add to water, are ideal for everyday use and travel.

It’s easy to make small choices that add up to a big difference.

  • 2 cups gluten free or all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup monk fruit sugar
  • 1 cup vegan butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Dipping Sauce:

  • 2 cups strong coffee
  • 1/8 cup rum (optional)
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup or vegan honey


  • 2 cups raw cashews soaked in water for 2 hours
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup strong coffee
  • 6 large pitted Medjool dates
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • 4 cups whipped coconut cream (freezer section)
  • 1 cup shaved semisweet chocolate
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder


  • 2 medium bowls
  • Whisk
  • Mixing Spoon
  • Piping bags
  • Measuring spoons and cups
  • Blender
  • 9×13 or 12×12 dish to assemble tiramisu


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F
  2. Remove tofu from package and drain liquid. Place tofu on a plate and place heavy plate or object on top of tofu for 15 minutes to release excess liquid.
  3. In food processor, blitz graham crackers, walnuts and vegan butter until mixture becomes a fine crumble. Firmly pat mixture into a 9-inch springform pan and wrap the bottom well with 2 sheets of tinfoil, leaving the top exposed. Place pan with foil inside into a sheet pan and pour 1.5 cups of water in the sheet pan around the springform pan. This will help ensure the crust doesn’t crack when baking. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
  4. To blender, add drained tofu, dairy-free cream cheese, 8 figs, monk fruit sugar, vanilla, lemon juice and lemon zest. Blend very well until smooth.
  5. Once pie crust is cooled, pour mixture on top of crust (still in springform pan on sheet pan) and bake for one hour. Once done, turn off oven, open oven door and allow the cheesecake to cool inside the oven for 1 hour. This will present the cheesecake from cracking.
  6. Once cooled, refrigerate the cheesecake for 4 hours and decorate the cake with fresh figs.

Tip: Place the cheesecake in freezer one hour prior to serving to ensure the cheesecake slices smoothly. Enjoy!

Easy Ways to Celebrate Earth Day, Everyday

Every April, we celebrate Earth Day. How we celebrate has changed, though, since it was founded in 1970.

The first Earth Day focused on organized rallies and educating people about the importance of caring for our environment. The impact was huge and in the following years, major legislation was passed to make environmental policy a priority, including the:

  • Clean Air Act
  • Water Quality Improvement Act
  • Endangered Species Act
  • Toxic Substances Control Act
  • Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act

52 years later, over 1 billion people take part in celebrating and recognizing Earth Day.

Ready to get more involved? Here are a few simple ways our team and Wellness Experts like to celebrate Earth Day, in April, and every day!

1% For the Planet.

Lazy Acres is proud to invest 1% of participating Lazy Acres Private Label item sales to our 1% for the Planet Non-profit Partners. From April 1, 2021, to March 31, 2022, we’re donating proceeds to Grades of Green, the Rob Macha Foundation, and Balboa Park Conservancy.

Clean Up Your Beach.

Every Lazy Acres Market serves a beach community, so this is close to our hearts! You can get involved by connecting with your local Chamber of Commerce. Or check your local Facebook page or connect with a community group through your favorite local coffee shop to find out when your community members host ongoing beach clean-up days. It’s a great way to get outside, connect with others, and help show our beautiful environment some love.

Plant Native Plants and Wildflowers.

Many plants are not native to our coastal desert region and while they can look very attractive, they don’t support the overall ecosystem. Planting native species attracts and supports pollinators. Choosing native species also creates more harmony and health in our local ecosystem, impacting birds, animals, and other insects that rely on these plants. Plants and wildflowers native to Southern California save water and bring harmony to their environment. Want to learn more? Click here!
