Are You Getting Your Greens? – Trophic Greens Supplement Review

While nothing beats getting your fresh greens, supplementing them when you’re on the go isn’t a bad idea.  I’ve shopped around a lot and had a hard time finding a greens supplement that did not contain sweeteners, preservatives, wheat or yeast. Because of the “greeny” taste, many products come with some form of sweetener (watch out for that). I don’t mind the taste, since I usually add it to my green smoothie which has enough fruit to over power any {Read More}

Natural Lip Treatments – Madara Ecolips Regenerating Lip Balm Review

If you’re similar to me, you hate the feeling of naked lips…or even worse, the feeling of dry ones. I think I inherited a somewhat OCD compulsion from my beloved mom, who is the Queen of lip-care. As a result, I always have a chap-stick, lip gloss or other lip product on hand, no matter what I’m doing or where I’m going – including to bed. That being said, before catching my Z’s, I have to have something on my {Read More}

Natural Sunscreen for Face – Kimberly Sayer Ultra Light Facial Moisturizer SPF 30

I love the sun as much as the next girl, but being fair skinned has made me especially aware of the damage that it can cause. So, I guess it is no surprise that I am known to wear SPF 110 on anything that sees daylight. Over the last year, however, I have found that using a natural SPF 30 suffices for day-to-day use, and if I’m out hiking, skiing or at the beach, a reapplication (or two) does the {Read More}

Snack Attack – Great Ideas for a Healthy, Alkaline & Beautiful Body

It’s the late afternoon and like clockwork, I start to get the need for a pick-me-up. This is the time when you need to be prepared.  If you’re not, you’ll find yourself reaching for that coffee or sugar-laden plastic-wrapped snack. Before you do, try to think about how glorious your skin will feel in a week’s time when you’ve managed to cut out sugar and refined foods… Why Are Alkaline Bodies Healthier? Up until this point, we haven’t chatted much {Read More}

Best 100% Natural Moisturizer for Body and Hair – Benefits of Coconut Oil

Visiting one of my girlfriends in London last week, I saw a funny looking jar in the bathroom…one that I usually find in my kitchen. Sitting there a top some beauty products was a big mason jar full of coconut oil ready for slathering on her bod post shower. She raved, so I had to try. Admittedly I’ve thought about it before and used it on my feet as an over night treatment, but never thought to try it as {Read More}

Summer is coming and that means the numerous things that have been left unkempt need some tending. After a long cold winter in Norway (and Canada) my feet needed a little TLC to say the least. I did some research on most effective natural foot treatment for dry heels and the likes and came across this little gem: Balm Balm Tea Tree Foot Balm Why it is great and good? Well for starters, it did wonders on my heels over {Read More}

Beauty Benefits of Turmeric – The Best Beautifying Spice

In a follow-up to yesterday’s post, I wanted to continue talking about ways to clear up our skin and prevent many signs of aging, naturally – from the inside out. The Sacred Spice Most people think of turmeric as a spice used in Indian and South Asian food, but not necessarily as a medicine or beauty remedy. The truth is, tumeric is one of the most powerful beauty AND health supplements out there (are you noticing the correlation between beauty {Read More}

Best Natural Anti-Acne & Anti-Aging Secret – Sugar Free Diet

Sugar is bad. We all know it. It causes inflammation (which promotes both aging and disease), suppresses our immune system and our human growth hormone (the hormone that keeps us young). Not to mention, it also raises our insulin levels and promotes glycation (which essentially speeds up the aging process). It is one of the easiest culprits to target but one of the hardest additives to change in our diet; however, once you do, a world of difference in your {Read More}
