  • 3 Tips to Get Your Skin Ready For Warm Weather

    by Paula Gallagher | March 9, 2016

    For the last few months most of us have been covered up from the neck down. With spring coming, the layers start to come off and more of our skin is exposed. Here are some tips to get your skin ready for warm weather!

    1. Brush: Skin has its own life cycle. Every so often, skin cells close to the surface die and should be removed to reveal the younger, newer skin cells below. What better time to focus on this practice than this season of new life? The result will be glowing skin and a vibrant, springlike appearance. There are two effective ways to do this:

    • Exfoliate your face and body with a natural scrub. Choose an exfoliant that has natural, organic ingredients that are gentle to the skin. Mychelle Fruit Enzyme Scrub gently polishes the skin without irritating or tearing the surface. Fruit enzymes further dissolve away dulling residue for ultra-smooth, ultra-soft skin. Read more

  • A Healthy Home – Some Steps to Take

    by Caroline Blazovsky, Healthy Home Expert | February 22, 2016

    cleaning-productsThe decision to start creating a healthy home is not always an easy one. Many people feel overwhelmed and confused by the process. I often hear questions like: What is a healthy home? Where do I begin? What might be toxic for me and my family? Remember, changing to a healthier way of life is a learning process. It does not happen overnight. Each move is a stepping stone toward the goal of healthier living. Be patient. This should be an exciting and positive experience. Here is some information to help you on your journey.

    Most detergents, commercial cleaning agents and personal hygiene products populating grocery shelves contain chemicals that can contaminate our homes, contribute to health complaints, and end up in our environment, affecting plants, animals and our ecosystem. These daily-used products may contain formaldehyde, benzene, trichloroethylene, toluene, as well as many other chemicals. It is important to educate ourselves about the products we use and understand how they can affect us. By switching to natural home cleaning and personal care products, you can reduce possible harmful exposure, while promoting a healthier home and planet. Read more

  • My 3 Must-Have Natural Beauty Products

    by Paula Gallagher | February 15, 2016

    lavenderWe can easily be seduced by promises of longer lashes, less wrinkles and smoother skin, and then end up with drawers full of useless stuff!

    The three products below are my favorite natural beauty products. They are tried and true, and some may even sound "old school," but they work even without a movie star endorsement. They have multiple purposes, are inexpensive, and are great for your skin.

    Coconut Oil: The current darling of the health food industry, coconut oil does it all. Not only can you cook with it, it can soften skin too. For some it may be too rich to use as a facial moisturizer, but it is an ideal body moisturizer. Massage it into parched winter skin, such as legs after shaving, or dry elbows. Read more

  • How to Whiten Teeth Naturally

    by Paula Gallagher | November 2, 2015

    teeth-whiteA great smile is the first thing that people notice. For many, whiter teeth make them feel more confident and they smile more often. But those neon white teeth we see on celebrities are not a reality for most. Teeth naturally fall within a range of light greyish-yellow shades, depending on your genetics, and will darken as you age. Lifestyle habits also play a role in the whiteness of your your teeth.

    Here are some tips to whiten teeth naturally, for a brighter smile:

    Drinking coffee, tea and red wine, and eating dark berries and chocolate can stain the teeth, and those stains build up over time. Even drinking milk can lead to an increase in tartar production that causes yellowing. Limit the number of cups of tea and coffee you drink, and swap the red wine for a glass of white. Or brush your teeth after eating or drinking, or rinse your mouth with water. Read more
