Washing Your Face With Oil For Beautiful, Glowing Skin

Say what? Washing your face with oil? Doesn’t that ensure your face will be oily to kingdom come? Breakouts galore? The simple answer is nope. Nope, nope, nope. Because of one simple principle: like removes like. In fact, after finally giving in and trying this method of washing my face, I couldn’t be happier! It’s by far my favorite. And over the years I have spent countless dollars on facial products from my skin. (Starting with the Proactiv that my sister and I ordered from TV in high school out of desperation!) to Clinique products, Origins, and, after starting the…

How To Heal Naturally: Part 2

Yesterday, I shared about one of the most powerful supplements available for staying healthy in cold and flu season, and that is Vitamin D. My favorite is Garden of Life’s Raw D3, which you can read more about here. So, on to step 2…. Using an extremely powerful and effective probiotic to positively overload and drench your immune system with friendly bacteria. It’s also by Garden of Life and it’s called Raw Probiotics. You take it for 5 days only and it is 400 billion live bacteria per serving. This is actually part of Dr. Mercola’s protocol for recovering after…

What To Do If You’re Sick

It’s that time of year, and sickness spreads like wildfire πŸ™‚ So what do you do if you feel like you’re coming down with something, or you already have? The first thing I’d recommend is to amp up your Vitamin D. Vitamin D is extremely important and from the months of October- May in all parts of the country except for Hawaii, Florida and California, you are unable to get the Vitamin D that your body requires from the sun. This is something you can’t do anything about, it’s because of the latitude and longitude of the sun as it…

Supplements For Amazing Health: Part 5

Here’s why I love Ionix Supreme: When I am freaking out, stressed out, kids screaming, and energy levels are tanking, I take Ionix Supreme mixed in 6 oz. of spring water, and I feel better and calmer within 5 minutes. Enough said πŸ™‚ That being said, the reason Ionix Supreme works is because it is an adaptogenic blend of herbs, superfoods, and botanicals that help the body cope with stress in a less taxing way. Your body will always have to deal with stress. But, when you supplement your body with adaptogens, it helps your body experience less of a…

Supplements For Amazing Health: Part 4

Let me begin this post by saying that my Dad has been trying to get me to to try the Isagenix product line for over 2 years. (I”m kind of a tough nut to crack sometimes) πŸ˜‰ He would go on and on about the amazing New Zealand grass fed whey, and how he thought such a high quality nutritional product that was so quick and easy was a perfect fit to my busy lifestyle. I looked in a cursory way at the products, but didn’t believe they matched my excessively high standards until I met someone recently who personally…
