Your skin is the largest organ on your body, so protect what you’re exposed to

When we were in elementary, we were already taught that the largest organ of the body is the skin. We were also taught to take care of our skin as it is exposed to a lot of harmful elements. Our skin acts as an insulating shield, waterproof, guards the body from extreme temperatures, protects the body from the damaging sunlight as well as protects us from harmful chemicals.  Whatever we put on our skin it is absorbed into our blood stream, just like that.

Aside from all of these, our skin is also an indicator on how old we are. That’s why many wish to have a younger looking skin and get rid of the fine lines and wrinkles that appear as we get older. The simplest way to take care of our skin is always to keep it clean. But sometimes keeping it clean is not enough and you would need some skin products that would help you repair damage skin as well as prevent it from getting more damage.

The abundance of skin care products in the market comes with a good reason and that is because more and more individuals are becoming conscious about their skin and would want to protect it the best way possible. Products like Arborne skin care are made to make sure that your skin is protected from the harmful elements that it is exposed to. Prevention is still the best remedy on protecting our skin from what’s its exposed to. So start protecting your youth and your body by protecting your skin.

Why we should all detox

Toxins are everywhere and whether we like it or not, our body gets bombarded by toxins. Our body’s natural reaction is for the liver to filter away the toxins so that we will not be poisoned. Although our liver is effective in taking care of the toxins and impurities in our body, it still needs a little boost. And we can help our liver and our body be free from harmful toxins through detoxification.

The main purpose of detox is to reduce the pollutions and toxins that go into our body and help the detoxification organs to clean our body. It also promotes healthy eating, getting more nutrition as well as supplementation in helping our body to efficiently clear and clean the toxins in our systems.

Aside from those main purposes, detoxification has other benefits. For one it helps our immune system by improving it with its function. It does not only eliminate toxins but also scavenges free radicals which are harmful to the body. Our blood is also being purified when we undergo detox. Not only does our blood benefit but detoxifying our body also cleanses mucous, fermentation, congestion as well helps in the prevention of digestive tract inflammation.

One of the leading causes of deaths nowadays is cancer and when we undergo detox, you are strengthening your body to fight the growth of cancer cells as well as help our body to produce healthy cells. Products from Arbonne help in the detoxification process and cleansing our body. so if you want a healthier life, consider detox.

Foods play a big role on having a beautiful radiant skin. By being healthy on the inside, you will glow from the outside by having a clear and radiant skin. By altering your diet a little bit you will feel and see the effect unfold right before your eyes. Here are some of the foods and vitamins that you can eat to help you have a beautiful skin:

Vitamin D is a good thing!

Posted on

One vitamin that can be produced by our body naturally with the help of the sun is vitamin D. That’s why doctors would recommend for babies to be exposed to sunlight for 30 minutes a day. Although sun exposure can help in the production of vitamin D, it should still be controlled as overexposure of the skin to the sun can damage it, thus the reason why many would turn to drinking supplements or using skin care products enriched with vitamin D.

This vitamin is needed by our body because it contributes to the process of skin metabolism as well as growth. It is also effective in treating some skin conditions such as flaking and itching skin. In fact, a lot of topical forms of vitamin D are being used as treatment for skin conditions.

Aside from the healing properties of vitamin D, it is also rich in antioxidant which destroys the free radicals that damages the skin and the body. As a result it prevents the premature aging of the skin as well as reduces the spots and signs of aging.

Using skin care products that are rich in vitamins like Arbonne is recommended especially if you want to have a younger looking skin. You can also drink vitamin D supplements to make sure that your body has ample supply of vitamin D instead of toasting under the sun.

The DL on tanning

Posted on

The beauty of sun-kissed skin cannot be denied and many would line up under the sun to get that exotic and sexy looking skin. Unfortunately aside from getting a tan under the sun, you will also skin damage when the skin is overexposed to the harmful rays of the sun. That’s why it is recommended to put some sunscreen on with at least SPF 30 before you go tanning under the sun.

If you want to get a beautiful tanned skin without exposing your skin to the harmful rays of the sun then you can take advantage of self tanning lotions and products. It can give you the skin color that you want without going through the penance of sun exposure. Sometimes it’s even better in terms of color as it can give you the beautiful non-orange glow if you had found the right product.

Some products just fail to give non-orange glow as well as give a certain smell of awful acrid stench. Other products give an unusual texture as well as give an uneven streaking which gives a funny looking mottled result. Thankfully the Arbonne self tanner does not give you these low downs when tanning.

Finding the right product on self tanning would mean finding a product that gives you great fragrance instead of the awful acrid stench. It should be easy to use. Most of all it should give you an even tone to avoid getting laughed at.

Be Aware! The FDA allows cosmetic and skincare companies to use animal products and bi products in your everyday products. No testing on animals!

Posted on

Yes it’s true! Although the FDA does not specifically require using animals for testing the safety of cosmetics they do however encourage and advise cosmetics manufacturers to use animals for testing cosmetics. They support the development as well as the use of alternatives to whole-animal testing!

What’s alarming is that animal testing is done in most products with a ratio of 94% to use animals in determining the safety of certain cosmetics as well as household products which only leaves a meager 6% for research. Now I say that is downright wrong!

It’s not only cruel to use animals for cosmetics testing but there are some cases where studies have shown that animal testing does not work because according to the  Huntingdon Life Sciences the  connection of human and animal testing only agree within 5-25% at a time. With that ratio, it’s a wonder why FDA still approves animal testing.

The good news is there are more than 450 methods being used nowadays to avoid animal testing and experimentation. There are also a whole range of cosmetic products that does not use animal testing. One of my personal favorites is the Arbonne line of cosmetics and skin care products as they do not use cruel animal testing with their products.

With the presence of such products, why would you support cosmetic products that were tested on animals! Start making a change and be an advocate to stop animal testing starting with your personal choice of cosmetic products.

How often should I wash my hair?

Posted on

Some hair experts say that if you have dry hair, you should not wash your hair everyday for it to have enough time to produce natural oil. On the other hand, if you have oily hair, it is recommended to wash it daily or at least every other day. But with all the pollution and the dirt, not to mention hair products like hair sprays that go into our hair, how can you not want to wash your hair everyday to feel refreshed?

Truth of the matter is if you wash your hair every day, the natural oil that our body produces are being stripped off. These oils keeps our hair shiny and most of all healthy looking. Add to the fact that the shampoos that we use to clean our hair are made up of chemicals that could damage the hair with daily use.

If you are the type who can’t bear not to shampoo your hair every day then it is important that you chose the right shampoo and hair products to maintain a healthy, shining and beautiful hair. Choose one that is made of natural products and one that helps you maintain the natural oil in your hair like Arbonne.

Also make sure that you moisturize your hair and get some hair treatments if time permits you. And more importantly chose hair products that are designed to fit your type of hair to prevent it from getting damaged.

Tips on picking out a bikini

Pick a flattering bottom: For shorter torso’s pick a bikini bottom that fits below the stomach.  Lengthen short legs with a bottom that is higher on the hips.  Prevent hip bulges with a tie on the side.  If you have a “belly” stick with elastic bottoms.

Pick the right top: Go with ruffles or figure 8 if your small breasted.  Go with under wires if your large breasted. Go for a string bikini if you have a boyish figure, leave a minimum of 3 inches between your breasts.
