Halloween is around the corner, and we all know what that means for parents with kids… bags of candy! Candy is a huge culprit when it comes to tooth decay. But so are soda, potato chips and even raisins!
So although it is obviously best to avoid consuming sugar-laden food, realistically, kids will probably have a few pieces.
Here are some tips to keeping your little ones’ chompers strong and cavity-free.
1. Reduce bacteria in the mouth. Since bacteria is what causes cavities and dental decay in the first place, it makes sense to try to keep it at bay. Bacteria feeds in acidic environments and it thrives on sugar… even natural sugar. So cutting back on these kinds of foods will help the mouth not to be such a prime environment for bacteria to reside. Another way to help with this is to sip on water or swish with water while you are eating, so food has less chance to stick to the teeth. (more…)

Mother’s Day is only days away and if you haven’t found something special for your mom yet, Village Green Apothecary has wonderful gift ideas that are natural and that she will love.
1. Logona Free Body Lotion: FREE Body Lotion meets the unique requirements of highly sensitive, easily irritated skin. Premium botanical ingredients, such as sweet almond oil, jojoba, shea butter and burdock seed oil, nurture and protect the skin, and improve the balance of the skin’s oil and moisture levels. The neutral pH value reinforces the acid mantle and strengthens the skin resistance to negative environmental influences. FREE Body Lotion helps restore a more supple texture to your skin and produces a well cared for appearance. (more…)

Even in the cold of winter, your skin still needs protection from the harsh effects of the sun. Don’t pack away the sunscreen with your shorts and swimwear once the weather turns cold. Sunscreen should be part of your routine, just like brushing your teeth… especially for your little ones.
Before heading out the door, apply sunscreen liberally to all exposed areas. Even if your kids are riding in a car or school bus, those harmful rays penetrate the glass and cause skin damage.
MyChelle Dermaceuticals: Sunshield SPF 28 is an unscented, environmentally-safe, full spectrum UVA/UVB sun defense that offers powerfully effective protection, yet is gentle enough for infants and non-irritating near the eyes. It uses translucent zinc and titanium dioxides that act as physical barriers.
