How To Take Care Of Your Lips: Carmex Comfort Care Lip Balms

Everyone knows that it’s important to take good care of your body whether its feature or figure. There are plenty of areas of the body to focus on, but have you considered your lips as one? You ladies probably stock up your cabinet with cleansers, serums, creams, sunscreens, and masks; but do you have the proper care instruments for your lip? If you think about it, your lips are always exposed; they’re prone to dehydration. The skin on the lips is also unlike skin anywhere else on the body: it’s thinner and has no oil glands.  The result can be red, rough, and chapped lips. In order to prevent that, you are going to need a product you can depend on to stop that! I happen to know just what you need: Carmex Comfort Care Lip Balms.

My Plant-Based Hair Care Routine: How I Keep My Long Hair Healthy

As my husband and I care for our dog, Lychee, fighting his kidney disease battle, we learn a lot about macrobiotic lifestyle. We incorporate more plant-based meals into our daily life. We learn that our kidneys are not only affected by the bad toxic food we eat everyday (fast food, white rice/bread, oily/sugary snacks, sodas, coffee,…) but also by fragrance chemicals that we’re possibly exposed to every day (perfumes, detergent, soaps, lotions, shampoos,..). These fragrance chemicals (synthetic scents) represent an unidentified mixture of ingredients including carcinogens, allergens, respiratory irritants, endocrine disruptors, neurotoxic chemicals and environmental toxicants. So my husband and I try our best to replace everything “fragrant” in our household with homemade plant-based alternatives; for example, we home grow aloe vera and use the meat (with Manuka honey) for body lotions and face masks, we use our garden grown grapefruits to make our own dish washer and hand soap,….As we were trying to figure out how to make our own shampoos and conditioners, I got contacted by Phyto to try their plant-based haircare products. For over 50 years, Phyto has been a leader in plant-based hair care. All of their products are overall 95% botanicals and formulated in their family-owned labs in France.

Their products embrace the principle that healthy hair begins at the root, and they have created so many unique products that contain no parabens, sodium laurate sulfate, synthetic fragrances, and no added water. Since then I have incorporated Phyto in my haircare routine and every since I started following this regime my hair changed completely! Below, I’ve outlined this routine and the products I use along the way for you. My hope is that all of my time and energy can help at least one of you get one step closer to the hair you’ve always dreamed of.

Bellabeat Leaf: The Fashionable Fitness Tracker

The Bellabeat Leaf is described as “smart jewelry” which, like many activity trackers on the market, is designed to track your daily step counts, your sleep, and your calories burned! But what sets it apart from other health trackers is when paired with the app using Bluetooth, it also tracks menstruation and ovulation and offers guided breathing exercises to reduce stress. Most fitness trackers out there are ugly and bulky. Bellabeat Leaf, with its sleek and elegant design, fits perfectly in with both my wardrobe and my style. The LEAF is made of sustainable wood and hypoallergenic stainless steel, and its sophisticated design makes it look like a stylish piece of jewelry than a standard tracker from a company like Jawbone, Nike, or Fitbit. Bellabeat Leaf can be worn on your wrist as a bracelet, as a necklace or even clipped onto your clothes like a broach.

Luxurious and Healthy Choice for Breakfast: Acai Bowls

Nowadays healthy food-choice old-time vocabularies like “smoothies” and “salads” are not as as hip and trendy as some modern phrases like “grass shots” or “kale bowls”. And the world of healthy eating has constantly evolved into something more complex every day. Just when you think that you get acquainted with terms like “antioxidants”, “detox” or “Himalayan Salt”, new concepts  have already emerged as the new trends in town. The newest trend in the world of “eating your greens” or “eating raw” is the decadent “Acai Bowl”. If you notice your Instagram feed lately, you may have recognized that the Acai Bowls with colorful berries and seeds are such a huge hit. It looks very complicated to prepare an Acai Bowl, but it is actually easier than it looks; most of the work is just gathering all the ingredients. In this blog, I would like to share with you my simple Acai Bowl Recipe.

My Detox Plan

There are lots of options for detox plans depending on the purpose (clear skin, weight loss, take the load off the organs that detoxify your body: kidney, liver,…).

For me my goal is mainly to improve digestion and have that sparkling skin glow. So my detox plan is pretty simplified and the duration is about 7 days.
