In a world where botox, facelifts, and Instagram filters exist, our obsession with retaining our youthful skin has reached new levels. After all, no one wants to look older and have a face full of wrinkles. But aging is inevitable and while we’re all for embracing ourselves no matter what our age, you don’t have to give in to not looking and feeling the best you can.
“Wow, did you get a facelift?” your friend asks as she looks at you with amazement. No matter what age you are, everybody wants glowing, bouncy skin.
Trust me, I’m 54 and know how getting older feels. Like you, I don’t want wrinkles, skin discoloration, and dull, dehydrated skin. But I also don’t want to spend my precious time having to get expensive facial treatments or getting injections of toxic Botox.
Did you know that Botox is made out of the same toxin that causes a life-threatening type of food poisoning???
The stress that comes with the belly pain, bloating, leaky gut and discomfort of digestive issues can literally send a person right into a “meh” existence. I AM VERY familiar with all of this, as I have struggled with SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth).
A few years ago, I was placed on antibiotics for 9 months that destroyed my gut ecosystem and left me with a digestive mess. As I am on the journey to improve my health and my digestive brain, I am sharing a smoothie with a secret ingredient that will heal and soothe your gut with each slurp: Aloe Vera.
It’s well known from extensive research that fragrance is a common sensitizing ingredient for all skin types. Yet, despite this information, fragrance is common in more skincare products than you can imagine.
Many people don’t realize the damage fragrance does to your skin and your body… and if you think you are “safe” because you purchase “unscented” products, think again.
Many synthetic ingredients used in skincare (natural products included, especially water-based skincare) have a horrible odor.
In order to cover up the bad odor, so you will apply it to your face or body, companies will use fragrance (the F-word of skincare) to neutralize the bad odor… odor eater chemicals if you will.
