I often get questions about my skincare regime and what products I like to use, so today I thought I would shed some light on the subject and let you in on my skincare secrets!
Our faces are like magic mirrors reflecting the inner workings of our bodies, and conditions like acne, premature wrinkles, inflammation, and other skin-related conditions are all indications of something going on at a much deeper level. When our bodies are clean-celled and functioning optimally on the inside, it’s only natural for healthy and radiant skin to surface on the outside.
It can be really tempting to search for a miracle cream or lotion that will fix your skin problems if you’re feeling desperate, but unfortunately many of these same products are laden with toxic chemicals that only poison the bloodstream and never actually address the root cause. Keep in mind that everything you slather on your skin is absorbed into your body, so this is why it’s really important to opt for clean, non-toxic skincare alternatives.
Before I get into my healthy skin tips + skincare routine, I just want to preface this by saying that although I’m a big proponent of non-toxic beauty and clean skincare products, I actually attribute the health and look of my skin to my diet and lifestyle (and of course genetics plays a role too). I just don’t want you to be fooled into thinking that expensive creams and lotions will ever correct an underlying issue or internal toxicity.
So with that said…
Here are my top 5 tips for naturally radiant skin, followed by my personal skincare routine! Continue reading
Digestion is a hot topic around here, and one that I’m very passionate about. This is because I know that an optimal functioning digestive system is the cornerstone to great health!
Did you know there’s a direct correlation between your digestive health and your ability to fend off illness, the look and tone of your skin, and even your ability to lose weight?
At the end of the day though nobody wants to feel bloated or gassy, experience heartburn, or suffer from constipation and irregular BMs.
This is why further to my last post on food combining, I thought I would compile a list of all my best digestive health tips and put them into one little handy checklist that you can have at your fingertips!
Notice that these are all things you can start doing right now without having to buy any fancy supplements.
Check out my checklist!
Today I want to talk to you about an often overlooked practice that can dramatically improve your digestion and even help you shed excess weight.
Food combining is one of those things that I’ve always kind of known about but didn’t really put into serious practice until about 4 or 5 years ago. Although I had already been eating pretty healthy for quite some time, integrating food combining into my life elevated my digestion to a whole new level and helped me shed the excess weight that left me feeling a little heavier than I desired.
In a nutshell, food combining is a way of eating that respects the natural biochemistry of the body. Different types of foods require different types of digestive enzymes to break them down, along with varying pH environments (i.e. acid/alkaline). They also have different rates of digestion. Eating foods in easy-to-digest combinations ensures that things move smoothly all the way through without encountering pileups along the way. Continue reading
Want to know what I eat? Here you go!
It’s not often I post about my daily food intake, but a recent discussion I had with a client inspired me to do so.
She was struggling. She was stressed out and busy at work and by the time she got home in the evening the last thing she had on her mind was preparing something healthy to eat for dinner. Although she loved vegetables and considered herself a great cook, she basically just concluded that she didn’t have enough time to prepare a healthy dinner because “following recipes takes too long”, and that if she was ever going to make this work, well then she would have to devote her weekends to meal prep and trying out new recipes.
I stopped her in her tracks. This was the LAST THING I wanted her to do. Continue reading
