Even the most expensive skincare products and treatments in the world wouldn’t be able to make up for a lousy diet and poor nutrition. Here are some of the best vitamins and minerals you should get more of if you want to have healthy, beautiful skin:

Biotin is a B complex vitamin that helps promote cell growth and is necessary in the process of converting food into energy. It is sometimes also called Vitamin B7 or Vitamin H. Without enough biotin, you may experience hair loss, dull hair prone to breakage, weak or brittle nails, and itchy, sensitive skin. Biotin can be found in many hair care and skin care products, including natural beauty products by brands like Well Within Beauty.

Biotin helps your skin protect itself from acne, inflammation, infections, dryness and rashes. It also helps to strengthen your hair and nails, making them less brittle and prone to breakage. You can increase your biotin intake by consuming more foods that are rich in biotin, such as eggs, salmon, cauliflower, avocado and berries. You can also take supplements for healthy skin that include biotin high up in the ingredients list.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is usually associated with the words “fresh” and “bright” and vibrant, happy colors like sunny yellow and zesty oranges. This is exactly what it does for your skin—it makes your skin look fresh and bright, giving you a healthy, radiant glow. Vitamin C has powerful antioxidant properties, which makes it very effective at protecting your skin from damaging free radicals and the harsh effects of sun exposure and pollution.

Increase your Vitamin C intake by eating more bright, citrus fruits like oranges, grapefruit and lemon, other fruits like mangoes, watermelon, papaya and strawberries, and vegetables such as broccoli, brussels sprouts and kale. You can also take Vitamin C as a supplement; they usually come in the form of tablets or chewables.

Considering adding a Vitamin C serum to your morning skincare routine, to help fade dark spots and even out your skin tone, and to give you a beautiful, radiant glow.

Vitamin D

Known as the “sunshine vitamin”, Vitamin D has strong anti inflammatory properties, so your skin can fight against acne, breakouts and infections. It also helps to boost your skin’s elasticity and stimulates collagen production, preventing early signs of skin aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin D helps your skin look plump, supple and youthful.

Our bodies naturally produce Vitamin D when we expose our skin to the sunlight, but getting just enough sun exposure can be a bit tricky. Too much sun exposure at the wrong time when the sun’s rays are at their harshest can lead to severe skin damage and problems such as sunburn, dark spots, fine lines, wrinkles and even skin cancer.

The best time to get some sun is early in the day, before 10 AM. Ten to fifteen minutes of sun exposure every day during this time can benefit your overall health and improve your skin’s appearance and texture. You can also increase your Vitamin D intake by consuming more salmon, sardines, milk and yogurt.

Skin that is healthy and balanced can do an impressive job of maintaining, repairing and protecting itself. All you need to do is to make sure that you’re feeding your body the proper nutrients it needs to keep itself healthy. Make sure you get enough of these skin-essential and skin-boosting vitamins and nutrients, for your healthiest, most beautiful skin yet.

THE NON-CAFFEINATED ENERGY SUPPLEMENT MIX THAT WE ARE ADDICTED TO

September 1, 2019

When we first about Revive, we thought, oh no, another “energy supplement” – the only thing that caught our attention was this part:  “non caffeine energy generator”…

Hmm…well, that did sound interesting…And we read on about REVIVE and grew even more intrigued.

  • SFH REVIVE is formulated and clinically proven to be a non caffeine energy generator perfect for fueling your body with the energy that it needs.
  • REVIVE is unique. Other marketed energy products are in large part just mixtures of caffeine and high glycemic sugars that potentially increase insulin release and raise heart rate.
  • In clinical studies involving 62 participants over a one-month period, REVIVE’s premium blend of CoQ10, BioEnergy Ribose, and N-Acetyl-L-Carnitine, has been shown to:
  • increase energy
  • improve alertness
  • decrease fatigue
  • encourage hydration

Ok, let’s try this thing!

And LO AND BEHOLD – we were obsessed from the first taste of the Mojito. IT IS THAT INSANELY GOOD.  Not to mention – zero buzzy coffee feeling. None. Just sustained energy and hydration tested over several weeks of 2 hour mountain hikes.

“REVIVE was designed to be a biochemical energy generator by enhancing our mitochondria’s ability to generate energy (ATP). Ribose, carnitine and C0-Q -10 are absolute requirements for our mitochondria to generate energy. We have filed a US Patent Application concerning “Comestible Compositions for Promoting ATP Synthesis.” This patent teaches how a combination of Ribose, N-acetyl-L carnitine and Co-Q- 10 is an effective combination to enhance ATP Synthesis in mitochondria and thus enhance cellular energy generation (people have more energy and are more alert).”

Ingredients Explained:

  • REVIVE dissolves easily in water and has a slight sweet taste. The slight sweet taste is from ribose, a sugar by chemical structure, that does not function like a sugar at all! In fact, in contrast to other sugars, Ribose has a negative glycemic index and has been shown to lower blood glucose. Our bodies need Ribose to make ATP, the most basic form of energy.
  • Co-Q-10 is a powerful antioxidant that our bodies make naturally but production declines as we age. Co-Q-10 is an absolute requirement for energy generation Our bodies use this to generate energy at a cellular level.
  • N-Acetyl-L-Carnitine is a brain active form of Carnitine critical for energy generation. It transports fatty acids into the mitochondria so that they can be oxidized (burned) to produce energy.
Stronger Faster Healthier (SFH), a sports nutrition brand that manufactures gluten-free, soy-free and non-GMO supplements with no artificial flavors. The brand was started by a pharmaceutical and medical scientist who has designed and developed nutraceuticals to positively influence consumers’ health and wellness.
 
 
Through intense research and case studies, SFH has been able to prove that the science behind REVIVE is what differentiates their product from the traditional sugar and caffeine packed energy drinks. In a 2018 clinical study involving 62 participants over a one-month period, it was proven that their energy surged while their fatigue decreased. The results found that 85% of all participants reported increased energy or alertness. In addition, participants noted that they did not experience the extremes of jitters, racing heart or the “crash effect”, which can happen on a daily basis to most caffeine consumers. A follow up survey was given, and 58% of participants that completed it indicated their daily coffee consumption had decreased.
 
Dr. Jeff Leighton, Chief Scientist at SFH, stated “REVIVE is a unique approach to addressing low energy conditions. Biochemically, REVIVE was designed to activate mitochondria and make more energy.” SFH focused on the consumer demand for a more efficient energy intake, while also discovering ways to lead healthier lifestyles and improving quality of life. REVIVE is the solution for these needs and is an ideal product for working professionals, parents, students, and athletes. The patent-pending formula is positively changing the energy supplement industry.
 
The key ingredients in REVIVE include Bioenergy™ Ribose, which is a sugar-like molecule with a negative glycemic index. This is beneficial because our bodies use Ribose to make ATP, the most basic form of energy. REVIVE also uses a brain active form of Carnitine, which transports fatty acids into the mitochondria to produce energy. The third ingredient, CoQ10, is a powerful antioxidant that our bodies make naturally, but which declines as we age. CoQ10 supports heart and health and immune function. 


REVIVE is easy to use on the go. Each product comes with a Scoopie® funnel, a portable tool which allows you to pour the supplement easily into any shape water bottle or canteen. Study results show the effectiveness of REVIVE increases with how many times it is consumed daily. Drink one to three times daily, or as needed.
 
Available online at SFH.com, on Amazon, and in 3,900 CVS stores nation-wide. REVIVE comes in two all-natural flavors including Mojito and Citrus Punch, and retails at $34.99 for a 20 serving container. Skip the expensive coffee shop visit this afternoon and shake up some refreshing Revive for just $1.75 per serving. Your wallet and sleep schedule will thank you!

DIRTY LEMON Drops First Seasonal Drink, +aloe, To Keep Your Skin Hydrated This Summer

June 15, 2019

Summer is here! Let’s celebrate!!

My fave go-to, DIRTY LEMON, captures the essence of summer in a bottle with its first limited-edition seasonal release, +aloe. I am obsessed with Dirty Lemon and their new wellness formulations and cutting edge eye on beauty enhancing ingredients.

The formula combines the benefits of aloe vera and coconut water to deliver a thirst-quenching daily beverage to hydrate, cool and soothe summer skin. Perfect for, well, all day everyday, this summer.

“Proper hydration is often overlooked as a necessity for optimal skin health,” says Dr. Laurie Brodksy. “The vast majority of us don’t drink as much water as we should and when we become dehydrated, as we do by spending more time outside during the summer, our skin requires restoration to correct this imbalance.”

DIRTY LEMON’s +aloe is designed to replenish this moisture loss and maintain optimal hydration levels needed to prevent the most common skin concerns associated with dehydration and ensure a healthy summer glow.

The flavor profile is inspired by a beachside favorite, the mojito. The refreshing and tropical elixir contains aloe vera juice harvested from Mexico blended with organic Idonesian coconut water and paired with vanilla, mint and lime. Each bottle contains only 15 calories and less than 1g of sugar.

+aloe FORMULA:

● Aloe Vera —Packed with over 200 biologically active amino acids, minerals and immune-boosting polysaccharides to soothe, cool and hydrate inflammatory skin problems, such as sunburn, acne and rosacea

● Coconut Water —A great source of natural electrolytes as well as vitamin C, potassium, calcium, magnesium and glucose, the primary energy component of skin cells

● Lucuma —†Abundant in beta-carotene, zinc, iron and vitamin B3, studies show the Peruvian superfood has wound remedying properties and supports skin rejuvenation

+aloe BENEFITS *Provided by Dr. Brodsky:

● Hydrates —Aloe vera contains mucopolysaccharides (sugar molecules) that help bind water droplets to the skin, replenishing cells from the inside out

● Heals —Studies show ingesting aloe vera reverses the effects of aging and visibly reduces wrinkles. The amino acids in aloe vera soften dehydrated skin cells, while zinc acts as an astringent to tighten enlarged pores for a more supple appearance.

● Protects —Aloe vera provides an antioxidant-rich barrier to fight off acne-causing bacteria and inflammation associated with free radical damage

Plumps —Studies show drinking aloe vera stimulates fibroblast cells that produce collagen and elastin fibers, helping skin look smoother and feel more elastic

+aloe is available for a limited time only on June 17th from $45/case. To order visit DIRTYLEMON.com

Heal Your Relationship Space with – Jusstine K

June 14, 2019

I just had a reading and healing with Jusstine K or Psychic Girl as she’s been known amongst celebrities and the like for over 30 years. I read her about Jusstine on GOOP in an article titled Detox Your Heartspace (me!) and had to know more as I have been really struggling in the love department lately.

I was lucky enough to have Jusstine to my home for a personal reading. I came loaded with questions for her. She tuned in with a general about myself first and then we got into specifics. What I loved about this reading was that she didn’t tell me what I was hoping to hear. In other words, no unicorns and rainbows. It was this is not happening here or that is not happening now and rethink this and it’ll be a year before that….

I am for sure in an interesting place! All during the reading, she kept saying, I know this probably isn’t what you want to hear, somewhat apologetically and always with the notion, but we have free will, life intervenes and these are messages she is getting from my guides. Thing is, things can change.

Ok, this all sounds really sad but really it wasn’t at all. We got clarity around my budding business. Jusstine clearly reflected back exactly what was going on with me in my partnership/romance/love/relationships world and the good news is, she has found a way to share healing in this space with everyone by creating a download that is nowhere near her session fee. Phew.

Heal Your Relationship

Effortless Way to Heal Broken Hearts

“After two decades of studying and researching in the physical, metaphysical and spiritual realms, I was inspired to create what I believe is the most powerful relationship tool there is. Heal Your Relationship Space instantly heals your heart and shifts the energy around relationships. It gets you out of emotional pain with just one listen, and then continues to heal you the more you do it!”

– Jusstine K.

Jusstine took me through a healing – one on one – and it was so relaxing from the start that I was immediately open to go deep into the visualization journey with her.

And I am soooo excited about this download because it’s so cheap you don’t even need a discount code or anything – it’s $25!!

“That’s the beautiful thing about my meditation to clear your emotional space: It’s a cheat sheet to healing heartache. It’s like taking a shower from the inside out, so you are ready to attract what’s best for you.” – Jusstine on Goop.

Ok somehow I just copied and pasted this button from her site – so wow – you can just click this big pink button below!

“Heal Your Relationship Space is a 15 minute MP3 download. All you do is close your eyes, listen and you will heal. Since everything on the outside of you is a reflection of what’s happening on the inside, as you heal yourself spiritually the physical naturally follows. Just imagine being able to wash away every traumatic relationship experience that has made you who you are today. Heal Your Relationship Space does just that! It is like giving your spirit a shower from the inside out.”
