Aiming for healthy glowing skin? Consider adding facials to your skincare regimen. Add facials would be very beneficial to the health and wellness of your skin, both in the short and long term. Consider the regular appointments you make with your personal trainer, the dentist, and your hair stylist, your skin deserves some attention too. Commit to make some time for your skin. Because after all you only get one face and one shot to maintain healthy radiant skin. Here are 5 reasons why you should get facials regularly.
Getting Facials Helps you to Get the Most out of your Skincare- Facials are meant to assist with what’s going on underneath the skin. Think of it as a compass. Once your skin is navigated in the right direction, you can get the most out of your skincare products you use at home.
At Home Skincare Guidance- The great benefit of getting facials is that you get to work with a trained esthetician who is a skin specialist. The esthetician will assess your skin and make recommendations on how you can maintain your skin at home and in between your facials
Masks and Peels will give you a healthy complexion- Facials will give you an instant healthy complexion. During a facial, your skin will be steamed to open pores, extracted and then prepared for a mask or two. Depending on your skin’s needs, the mask’s purpose may be to calm, hydrate or decongest the skin.
Seasonal Skin Changes- Season changes bring skin changes and your skin needs to be tended to accordingly.
Deep Cleansing- Deep-cleansing facials removes all the dirt and oil build-up without drying the skin. Proper cleansing will refine your pores and your complexion will look and feel rejuvenated.

Isn’t this medicine cabinet just lovely? As much as we love various skincare products. The truth is you don’t need to use so many products. You don’t need to exfoliate every day and perform so many acts of skin cell turnover at one time. Using too many products at once, can wear down the skin’s barrier function and cause a ton of surface dryness. It can also drain your bank account. Scale back, and pepper different products throughout the week or month so you don’t accidentally wake up one morning a faceless (we’re just kidding).
My… time sure does fly. Summer is just about over, and we enjoyed the sweet watermelon and electric kiwi. Now fall is on the horizon, and the fall harvest is bringing in a variety of nutritious packed fruits and vegetables. Bring in the fall with these four superfoods.
APPLES. We have heard the saying over and over that “an apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Apples are enriched with antioxidants. They could help detoxify your liver, improve your digestion, and control weight. Apples also contain Vitamin C, which could help the body’s resistance against infections. There are also a variety of apples you could try if you’re feeling adventurous. You could grab an apple on your way out of the door or you could try out different recipes such as Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal or Beet and Apple Salad, just to name a couple. Check out these healthy apple recipes: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/photos/healthy-fall-apple-recipes
CAULIFLOWER. Cauliflower is also full of antioxidants and contains a range of vitamins and minerals that could boost your health. Cauliflower is rich with Vitamin C and fiber and could help balance hormones. With colder temperatures right around the corner, you could cook up a nice Cauliflower Soup dish or rice bowl.

SWEET POTATOES. I just love the smell of sweet potatoes. But smell isn’t the only thing I love about them. Sweet potatoes are a great source of beta-carotene, which is known for helping to prevent and repair damage to your cells. They can also help you maintain clear skin. Although we may love Grandma’s Sweet Potato Pie, there are other delicious meals such as Sweet Potato Casserole and others that we could try out at http://www.delish.com/cooking/g3753/healthy-sweet-potato-recipes/.
PUMPKIN. Pumpkin spice and everything nice, that’s what fall is made of. Pumpkin contains a high dosage of Vitamin A and potassium. It could help strengthen your vision and immune system. Pumpkin seeds also hold a great nutritional value due to the protein and fiber they carry. Yes, some may familiarize pumpkins with Halloween, but pumpkins are everything but scary to your overall health. Instead of just using a pumpkin to carve out for the holidays, check out the Beef and Pumpkin Stew and Pumpkin Turkey Chili and more at: http://dish.allrecipes.com/healthy-pumpkin-recipes/.
Back to School is in full throttle. Bells are ringing…School buses are filled to capacity… Recess is back in effect. As parents we are excited to get our children back into the groove of the school environment, but we must also make sure that they are in the position to have the best school year of their lives, academically and socially. Therefore, we must help them to create healthy choices. We must produce Healthy Kids on the Go.
Create a sleep schedule. Sleep is very important and vital to the health of your children. It is essential to good health and just as important as nutrition and exercise. Now that school is in, make sure that your kids aren’t still on a summer time sleep regimen. A lack of sleep will affect their performance in school, sometimes resulting in falling asleep in class and not paying attention causing them to earn low grades. Studies show that sleep also improves growth, helps the heart, and helps fight germs.
Promote healthy eating habits. Now a days, students tend to skip lunch to hang out with their friends. Sometimes they just grab a bag a chips and a can of soda. As parents, we must provide our children with healthy eating options. Not only should we pack healthy foods in their lunch boxes, but we should also provide a nutritional breakfast and dinner. When children aren’t eating properly, they tend to lose focus. It becomes hard for them to concentrate. Eating the proper food provides energy and focus to support their ability to learn. Include foods that are rich in fiber and protein. You can pack a nice pasta salad, watermelon slices, carrots, tuna sandwich, or peanut and butter sandwich on a bagel. Check out recipes at: http://www.parents.com/kids/nutrition/lunch/healthy-school-lunches-snacks/.
Promote water intake. Studies have stated that drinking water can improve brain function by 15%. Not drinking water causes dehydration. Children lose water throughout the day, and it is important for them to drink water on a continual basis. Studies have even suggested that water helps improve exam grades. Water not only boosts their metabolism and helps to flush out toxins, but it also helps prevent headaches. Children are unable to apply themselves 100% if they are dehydrated and not feeling well. Water may not be the #1 drink on your child’s list, but you must stress the importance of drinking water. Provide your child with 1 to 2 bottles of water in his or her lunch. You can also buy them a cool water bottle that will encourage them to drink and drop a teaspoon of Oringaa Original Blend to add a little protein, vitamins and minerals. Make it fun. Make it rewarding. Create a contest. If your children drink the appropriate amount of water a week, maybe you can reward them with a trip to the water park on Saturday. Going to the water park may be your child’s reward, but a having healthy child is yours.
Less screen time. Yes, I know that this is the social media era, and entertainment is at an all- time high, but limiting your children’s screen time will pay off. Less screen time will leave more time for studying. Too much screen time could affect their bonding time with you, their physical activity, and sleep regimen. Children should be socially and physically active to keep their energy flowing. Also with all of the cyber bullying that surfaces on social media, it is important to limit their time on the telephone and other devices to decrease the chances of them facing cyber bullying problems. Watching too much television can produce unhealthy habits.
Teach your children about positive self-messages. Being positive has a huge impact on your self-esteem. Whether you believe it or not, being positive creates a longer life span, lowers stress levels, and lessens the rate of depression. Having healthy kids on the go also details helping them to feel good about themselves. Help them to value healthy choices and relationships. Encourage their interests and passions. Create an affirmation that they can say every morning before they go to school. The affirmation should include uplifting and encouraging words that promote success and positive self-identity.
Healthy Kids, Healthy Life!
