Our Favorite Detox

Every season I like to give myself a healthy detox to reboot my skin, body, and mind.  A detox plan is a great way to make yourself feel new and fresh whether it is after the winter holidays filled with Thanksgiving and Christmas indulgence or if it is to prepare for summer days filled with sun, surf, and bikinis.  Below are my favorite ways to renew and revitalize myself in order to prepare for my next grand adventure. Drink lots of hot water, ginger, lemon, and honey. Simply pour yourself a mug of hot water, and add 1 tablespoon of Manuka honey, 3-4 dices of ginger root, and half a lemon. For an extra kick, add a dash of hot red pepper flakes. This warm concoction is the ultimate way to flush out your system. Ginger is well known for its digestive and anti-inflammatory properties, and it’s a natural remedy for nausea and heartburn. Lemon not only helps balance your body’s pH levels, but it also aids digestion by acting as a gentle diuretic. Honey is another digestive aid that will soothe inflammation and can boost your immune system. Manuka honey has particularly strong digestive and antibacterial properties. Exfoliate your face and …

Moment” 3. OPI “Suzi Says Feng Shui” * I used Essie “Good to Go” top coat and ALMOST added a little glitter sparkles for fun. * You’ll need a pin or toothpick to create your tie dyed effect. How I achieved my tie dye nails… this video tutorial may help if you need it. 1. Paint a base coat, I chose white, but it depends on what order you’d like your colors to display. 2.

DIY: Homemade Coconut Milk Shampoo for Summer

Nothing brings about that summer feeling more than the delicious smell of coconut, and we have a recipe that will lock that glorious summertime scent in your hair: homemade coconut milk shampoo. What You Need: ½ cup coconut milk (this can be found in the international aisle at most supermarkets) 2/3 cup castile soap (this can be found at health food stores like Whole Foods. I always stick with Dr. Bronner’s because it’s made of pure, fair trade ingredients) 1 tsp vitamin E oil 1 tsp coconut oil Like many beauty products, the ingredients can be altered to fit your scent preference, as long as these two stay the same: coconut milk and castile soap. As for oil, you can use vitamin E, coconut, almond, or olive. You can also add a few drops of essential oil if you like. I think next time I will go with lavender or vanilla. What you do: If you’re using coconut oil, place it in the microwave for about 30 seconds or until it’s fully melted. Combine all ingredients in a container with a lid, and shake. To use, shampoo your hair as you normally would. Use 1-2 teaspoons of the shampoo, depending on hair …

Two DIY Homemade Energy Bar Recipes

Making your own energy bars will not only save a few bucks, but these bars are a lot healthier than any you’ll find at a store. Homemade bars tend to be better fuel for your workout since they don’t contain any preservatives or artificial sweeteners. They’re super easy, too. Here are two different recipes, one chocolatey and one fruity, with the option to make them chewy bars or crunchy. Enjoy! Crunchy peanut butter, chocolate granola bars from Emma Christensen, Note: Double the rice syrup in this recipe if you’d prefer chewy bars. Makes 8 large or 16 small bars. Ingredients: ½ cup unsalted peanuts, chopped 1 ½ cups old-fashioned rolled oats 1 ½ cups crispy rice cereal 1/3 cup brown rice syrup 3 tablespoons smooth peanut butter 1 tablespoon brown sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract ¼ teaspoon salt 2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips 1.

DIY: Coffee and Coconut Body Scrub

If you haven’t already seen the flood on social media about the newest beauty trend, you may find it a little unusual to rub ground coffee beans on your body instead of sipping them in your iced latte. Unfortunately these coffee scrubs can run a little pricey, but here is an awesome, affordable recipe that I have tested and now can’t shower without. The ingredients in this scrub are ideal for achieving smooth, soft and glowing skin. The coffee, sea salt and brown sugar help exfoliate your skin while coconut, vitamin E and jojoba oils replenish and soften head to toe.  The best part about this scrub is that the caffeine from the coffee helps stimulate blood flow and tighten skin, leaving a firm and youthful appearance. Ingredients: 3 cups ground coffee of you choice 1 cup coconut flakes 1 tablespoon sea salt 3 tablespoons brown sugar 2 tablespoons coconut oil (cooled or melted) 2 tablespoons vitamin e oil 1 tablespoon jojoba oil Directions: Mix all your ingredients together until you get a consistent pasty, scrub-like texture. Because this is a larger batch, you may want to blend the ingredients in smaller sections and combine at the end to ensure you have an even …
