Do You Know Organic?

Organic is Vibrant well-being

Fruits and vegetables are imperative for our well-being, before antibiotics, our ancestors relied upon Mother Nature for effective and safe remedies. Healthy skin is achieved from within, I would like to share a few recipe treatments using of my favorite  healing foods.

Organic Seeds

Pineapple

  • Reduces inflammation
  • Speeds up tissue repair
  • Protects bones
  • Energizing
  • Immunity booster

Pineapple is rich in vitamin C, manganese, and bromelain. If your skin is dry, soak it in warm water for 10 minutes, cut a piece of pineapple peel and place it flesh-side down on the area, (miracle worker for dry heels), you may secure it with ace bandages, leave over night. When removing the dressing, gently peel it back, soak the area in warm water for 5 minutes, and dry. You may repeat this up to 3 nights, resulting in amazingly soft skin!

Pumpkin Seeds

  • Promotes prostate health
  • Fights fatigue
  • Aids memory
  • Helps skin complexion

What a great snack! Pumpkin seeds are high in zinc, iron, protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and B-complex vitamins. Excellent snack, easy to carry around and super healthy!

Slippery Elm

  • Soothes digestive tract
  • Eases colic
  • Emollient
  • Soothes sore throat
  • Calms irritated skin

Slippery elm is a soothing herb, used internally may help prevent digestive problems, crohn’s disease, and colitis. Used topically, slippery elm soothes wounds, burns, itchy and irritated skin. Cleanse the skin, then apply this soothing magical herb to the area and leave for 5 minutes, repeat as needed.

Milk

  • First-class protein
  • Strengthens bones
  • Rich in calcium

Milk does the body and skin good! Full of calcium, vitamin-B, iron and zinc, some studies have shown it may be good for the brain, nourishes the skin, reduces liver’s production of cholesterol and lowers blood pressure. How about a milk & honey bath lotion? Simply add half a cup of milk, 2 eggs, 3 tbls oil, 2 tsp honey, 2 tsp organic shampoo and 1 tbsp vodka in a bowl, mix together and pour in a glass bottle. You may add 3-4 tablespoons to bath water. (Keep the home-made lotion in the fridge, and use within 3-5 days)

Tea Tree

  • Antifungal
  • Antiseptic
  • Treats skin infections
  • Used for oral infections

Tea tree is an effective remedy for a brad range of ailments, especially fungal and skin problems like acne, insect bites, athlete’s foot, yeast infections, ringworm, sore throats, may help combat gum disease, and useful for colds. Tea tree skin wash is amazing, make your own! 1 tsp dried or 2 tsp fresh tea tree leaves and 1 cup of freshly boiled water. Steep the herbs in water for 10 minutes, then strain. Leave it to cool, then bathe the skin of affected area, repeat as needed.

Healthy Skin Secrets

Healthy skin care begins at home, if your skin looks terrific, you’ll feel beautiful all over. Home-Spa treatments are on the rise, many prefer the intimacy  and comfort of their own home instead of busy spa, for a personalized and efficient treatment.

Do You Want Eternal Beauty?

“Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart

~Kahlil Gibran

[slideshow]

How many people worry about aging? How many people say “Oh, another birthday, let’s not mention it, at my age I would rather lose count ….” ? Is this what Hollywood has done to mankind? Perhaps magazines? Don’t waste another year, celebrate, you’re BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

Don’t you know beauty doesn’t age? Did you know beauty comes from within? When we’re happy, we glow and attract people who are positive and see our inner beauty, which magnifies our outer beauty as well, causing it to stand out while brightening the world we live in! Smile all the time, even when a birthday is approaching, have fun and cherish every moment, your skin will appreciate it too!

Little Secrets about Beauty

POSITIVITY

Positive and optimistic attitude is important and associated with youth, why you ask? According to statistics, it shows younger people have not experienced real life challenges, therefore they may appear happier and more upbeat, making them look younger than what they are … I disagree, there have been many instances where an individual faced a life threatening obstacle, illness, or some type of traumatic experience, but that very same individual chose to feel the pain and release it, leaving room for personal and spiritual growth, equating to a positive outlook in life, and eventually moving on. So, why not begin today, and try to do out best in loving ourselves, our age, our soul, and by doing so, let’s smile, the more you smile, the younger you look!

SLEEP

Dark circles, bags, or both? Don’t rush to a plastic surgeon yet, begin by changing your sleeping patterns. You may see a dramatic change from how you feel, to your complexion. Did you know lack of sleep dehydrates the skin? Causing breakouts, uneven color pigmentation, or/and dark patches in the eye area? Begin today! Promise yourself this now, you’ll do the very best in setting an earlier bedtime, by leaving your laptop on the desk, turn your phone off and don’t watch t.v, meditate, and drift your thoughts and mind toward a deep, sound sleep. Like everything, this too is a learned behavior, you may call it a learning process. Begin today, your goals towards wellness and a more beautiful you!

EXERCISE

Did you know another secret to vibrant looking skin is exercise? Yes, you heard right, exercise helps you feel better about yourself, but it also helps your skin release any toxins via sweat glands. Don’t forget epidermal elasticity, by exercising regularly your body releases natural hormones making your face, neck, and all over appearance look and feel firmer. Give it a try! Exercise your way to beauty!

DRESS TO IMPRESS

Look in your closet, what do you see? Do you like your wardrobe? Or is it time for an update? How do you look and feel? Keep up with changing times and trends! It feels good to look good! Meaning, wearing clothes that fit you, not too loose nor too tight! You deserve to feel and look your best in a casual setting, work environment, or special event, dress to impress yourself! When a person feels good, he or she may smile more, igniting and projecting their inner beauty to the outside world. Life is beautiful, not only due to nature, or things in it, but also because of people who actively make themselves part of it. Live a beautiful life, don’t settle for just “being” there, …. you are meant to SHINE!!!!

These are a few of the many secrets to eternal beauty. Beauty comes from within, make your uniqueness stand out! Your are BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

Guinot Creme Beaute Neuve Radiance Renewal Cream (CLICK on image for details).

Gently eliminates, through a biological exfoliating action, dead cells which suffocate the epidermis encouraging young and well-moisturized cells to rise to the surface. Restores a radiant complexion and reduces signs of aging, wrinkles and the skin’s small blemishes.

Best Eyeliner and Eye-shadow

“The best thing is to look natural, but it takes makeup to look natural.”
~ Calvin Klein

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! But isn’t true  beauty also natural? Of course it is! We may cover up blemishes and tired skin with make-up, but we can still look natural and refreshed, right? The answer is always a big  YES!!!

I love make-up. It’s fun and makes me feel pretty. Finding the right products was a little challenging, considering I have allergies and my skin is hypersensitive. My make-up has to stay put for the entire day, or until when I decide to wash it off. Constant touch-up, running eyeliners, smudging shadows, are amongst my biggest pet peeves, and will not stand for them. Does anyone want to look like a losing boxer? What do I mean by that? Hmmmm, walking around with two black eyes? No, not pretty! How about eyeliners that burn your eyes so much, causing them to tear the entire day?  Thanks but no thanks! There are brands which I stick by because they totally work for me, today I’m going to share them with you.  Please CLICK on images for product details and ordering.

Here’s a Quick Way to Heal your Lips

Napoleon Dynamite : “My lips hurt real bad!”

Classic! This one liner is by far one of the best quotes out there, why?  Because I can relate to it, considering my skin is sensitive and prone to allergies, my lips are also, what works for me? Carmex of course! Over the years I’ve tried and experimented with many different products, leaving my lips flaky, sticky, and most of all peeling … ugh … if you’re anything like me you can understand my frustration and at times annoyance towards the skin care industry, grrr! Lol!

Last year, around Christmas time, a good friend of mine re-introduced me to an old faithful product “Carmex” … perhaps she was tired of looking at my crackling lips? Maybe, but whatever the reason was, my overall look benefited by a million! This is not a joke, think about it, when you interact with people what do you notice first? Not being shallow here, just honest and truthful. I notice lips, eyes, and brows … so if you have severely chapped lips speaking can be difficult and at times painful.

Carmex Moisturizing Lip Balm, 0.35 oz

My love and loyalty for carmex doesn’t stop at the usual tube, but it carries to their new cosmetic lip line as well, and I truly like the new tinted lip care, if you’re a woman like me who cannot wear many lipsticks or glosses, this is a perfect alternative until your lips heal or you find the right product.

Carmex Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm with SPF 15, Sheer Peach Tint

I hope these products help you as much as they’ve helped me, would love to hear your feedback and advice! Thank you for stopping by and as always “Pass the Blog”!!!

Pure Healing

Fighting germs organically?

Nature offers many antiseptics, we can benefit from them and heal common health problems with a little help . Every household should have tea tree oil and grapefruit seed extract handy, they are the most powerful natural disinfectants on earth.

Tea tree oil and grapefruit seed extract

Tea tree was discovered in Australia, there are tea trees in other parts of the world, but Australian trees are more concentrated in oils. Tea tree is considered very safe, like anything else, please use caution when using this product, never use full strength oil on infants, children or pets, always dilute it first, if eye contact occurs, rinse throughly with cold water, if accidental ingestion , do not induce vomiting, drink large amounts of water, and, if available, take activated charcoal tablets to absorb the oil within the stomach.

The seeds in grapefruit kill germs on contact, new to the health industry, holistic practitioners are beginning to use it as natural antibiotic and immune system booster, it may be used topically and/or internally. Again, use caution while using products containing grapefruit seed extract, long-term use may disrupt intestinal balance, try limiting intake to 4-6 weeks, please consult with your local holistic physician for optimal results.

  • Are your muscles aching? Do the feel tired? Massage oils containing tea tree soothe and heal the body, and reenergize you, try it next time.
  • Morning breath? Cleanse your mouth with tea tree or grapefruit seed extract, dilute a few drops of oil in 6 ounces of water, then rinse! This works great in treating gingivitis as well.
  • Tea tree oil and grapefruit seed extract kill fungi on contact; nail fungus, athlete’s foot and jock itch can be treated with them by soaking affected area in water with either one of the antiseptics, then make sure the skin surface is dried well, wear socks, or clean underwear.
  • Household surfaces, in a spray bottle dilute solution of tea tree oil or grapefruit seed extract, and spray the germs away! Safe to use on doors, telephones, counters, bathrooms, shower curtains, moldy walls, trash cans, humidifier, spray into air ducts and filters, and the air (instead of lysol).
  • Chronic ear infections are the leading cause of antibiotics prescription in children, and myringonotomy (small incision of eardrum where excess fluid is drained, with insertion of tympanostomy tube, to keep the middle ear aerated for a prolonged period of time). Tea tree oil and grapefruit seed extract are proven ear infection warriors, by placing a few drops in each ear a few times a day, it will clear infection and heal the eardrum, however if you’re not comfortable diluting and preparing the drops for the child (completely understandable, considering you may be tired and lack time) check out this site, you can buy the drops already made www.imhotepinc.com/product1.html
  • Acne can be helped, simply add a few drops of tea tree oil or grapefruit seed extract to shampoos, conditioners and face wash, for spot treatment apply full strength tea tree oil to blemishes 2 times a day, leave to dry.

Have a great Memorial Day, please remember the ones who fought and are fighting for our liberty, freedom and peace. As always, thank you for reading! Please, pass the blog!

Is your face the roadmap to health?

Your skin is trying to speak, … listen …

Our face is the roadmap to health;  face mapping has been around for centuries, used in traditional Chinese medicine, which observes the appearance/feel of the skin, by determining the well-being of the body, mind, and spirit. Acupuncturists, doctors, homeopathy, nurses, aestheticians, massage therapists, use this practice in better evaluating  patients seeking an alternative  to Western medicine, by naturally healing the body from inside out.

The Forehead – Intestinal imbalance

Breakouts in this area is an indication of colon congestion or purging and cleansing are occurring.

If the area is red, it may be an indication of excessive intake of stimulating foods, salt, red meat, or dairy products.

If the are appears white, too much sugar consumption, artificial ingredients, drugs, caffeine, or fruit (which contain natural sugars), may be the problem. Moderation is always best.

Lips – Stomach

Cracked and dry lips may be a warning the intestines are not working properly, or our diet is high in preservative content. Lipsticks contain dyes, which compromise mouth and saliva enzymes by inhibiting proper digestion.

Vertical line between the eyes – Liver

Liver malfunctions, disorders and weaknesses may be caused by alcohol, drugs, poor diet, excessive preservatives, don’t ignore this signal, pancreatic cancer is the fourth silent killer in the United States.

For more information please visit CANCER AND PANCREAS

Lines on either sides of the brow bone – Spleen

The spleen, know as the filtering organ, once clogged will create stress-related illnesses, and behavioral changes. The lines on either side of the brow bone, may also be linked to tight shoulder area, (again stress related), which may indicate a malfunction of the adrenal glands.

Under eyes darkening – Kidneys

If under eyes begin darkening to brown or black, it may be a sign of kidneys malfunction. If the area also becomes irritated, red, swollen, too many rich foods are part of the diet, alcohol, and/or nicotine, drugs, or other substances may be the cause of the problem.

Nose redness – Male reproductive organs

Redness around the nose, in males, may signal prostate gland malfunction. Similar to the forehead, redness around the nose may also indicate excessive salt, red meat or dairy products consumption; if area surrounding the nose is white, then too much intake of sugar, artificial ingredients, drugs, caffeine or fruit may be the problem.

Tip of the nose redness – Heart

Expanded capillaries, swollen tissue, redness, may indicate heart conditions and high blood pressure.

Cheek area and/or nostrils irritation – Lungs

If the cheek area and/or  irritations in the nostrils consists of blackheads, white heads, the person may have bronchial problems and frequent colds, may also be another sign of poor diet, too much sugar, and dairy products.

Mouth – Stomach

Irritation surrounding the mouth and lips, may indicate poor digestion, and lack of enzyme in the stomach acid.

Chin – Female reproductive organs

Hormonal imbalances in women are manifested on the chin with breakouts, which cause migraines, mood swings, yeast infections, irregular menstruation. Chin breakouts are red and bumpy, cystic like, and painful, depending on the condition. These types of breakouts may continue for months, hormonal therapy may be a solution, however, it may mean a type of weakness in the reproductive organs.

A balanced diet, proper exercise, daily skin care regimen, stress reduction with meditation, are simple ways to achieve optimal health, and the road to a healthy complexion! Let’s begin today!

As always, thank you for reading!

Fillers

Beauty  ….

What is beauty? Allure, physical attractiveness, good looks, grace, or style? You tell me, enlighten me with your definition of such term. Beauty is perceived differently by all of us, making it easy for us to like different types of people. Every age has its own beauty, we need to embrace and cherish our inner and outer elegance, unfortunately we don’t. We are our own worse critic, we pick, hide, and complain about imperfections, very much unknown to the outside world; in front of the mirror we pull, tuck, and stretch our skin, hoping it will appear tighter, smoother, and perhaps plumper. Society has made coming of aging unacceptable, we look for quick fixes, from facials, peels, and fillers, we are thriving for perfection, which doesn’t exist.

Fillers

Q: Do fillers really remove years?

A: Yes, but the results are temporary.

1. Which are the most common areas fillers are used on?

  • Chin Creases
  • Uneven Brows
  • Dropping corners of the mouth
  • Muscle bands of the neck
  • Crow’s feet (outside eye-corners)
  • Marionette lines
  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Lines on the bridge of the nose
  • Deep expression lines

2. Possible side effects?

Always check with your doctor prior any procedure, safety and well-being are more important than beauty.

The crow’s-feet area is a bit pesky, the skin is thinner and the muscle causing the wrinkles is quiet strong, which may cause the treatment to go wrong, by pushing the solution in different parts of the face resulting in deeper wrinkles and a possibility of uneven skin around the injected area.

3. What kind of fillers are available?

There are more than 70 different types of fillers on the market, consult with your doctor by asking questions in ensuring the best choice for you.

The most common fillers are :

  • Botox
  • Juvederm
  • Hylaform
  • Captique
  • Radiesse
  • Restylene
  • Collagen
  • Fat Fascia Dermis (your own fat, which is the best option and less expensive)
  • Liquid Silicone
  • Poly-L-Acid known as Sculptra (currently only available for HIV – patients)

Beauty is beauty, but if a treatment or two makes a person feel better about themselves, I say go for it, why not? Keep it in moderation, be healthy and happy!
