Hello Beauties, welcome back!
This year I have been doing a lot of research on inflammation because this is one problem I struggle with (I’ll get more into this in a future post). Turmeric, ginger and garlic are the few top herbs that help with inflammation. While doing research I came across black seed and as most of you may know black seed is amazing! It’s known to combat allergies, asthma, diabetes ect. I could ramble on all day about black seed but I’m going to stick to a few things that benefits me and those close to me.
Being as though that the body naturally has inflammation to protect you from unfamiliar substances, black seed helps stabilize healthy and uncommon inflammation in the body. If you want to lessen your chances of cancer then I’d say make black seed your go to! Black seed contains a compound named thymoquinone that ceases inflammation and tumor growth. (Speaking of thymoquinone, it’s also great for men infertility boosting sperm count!)
Diabetes is one of America’s top diseases, diabetes is a result of high blood glucose. Black seed tweaks glucose tolerance, strengthening insulin production and beta cell proliferation. It also betters blood sugar and cholesterol and minimizes damage to beta cells. Going hand in hand it can also help lower high blood pressure by taking small amounts at least twice daily.
Experiencing hair and skin problems? Worry no more! Black seed is greatly known to promote hair growth by sustaining a healthy scalp by fighting dandruff and clogged hair follicles/ pores. It’s a natural conditioner for both hair and skin, battling acne, psoriasis and saves the hair from damage. One of the best things about black seed is that you can get it in many different forms. They have oil, ground, powder or pill form which makes it so universal! I hope I’ve been helpful, check back later for more health tips!
Hi and Welcome back, Beauties!
As I’ve stated in my previous post, it is now officially Winter (not my favorite season)! It’s now the end of the year and of course as the seasons change, we change too! So it’s important to cleanse yourself of toxins or any build up when the season changes, to prevent you from getting the common cold or flu. While on my fast a couple weeks ago, instead of just drinking water and tea, this time I decided to make fruit smoothies with sea moss aka Irish moss. As some of you may know, sea moss has a collective of 92 of 102 minerals that the body is made up of!
So of course, this stuff is amazing! To prepare my sea moss, I boil it until it becomes a gel and I store it in the fridge. I usually use a tablespoon while incorporating it into my smoothies and although sea moss isn’t so tasty, you can barely taste it when it’s mixed into milk, a smoothie or whatever you choose! One thing I realized while having sea moss on my fast was that it gave me a boost of energy! Any time I started to feel weak, I would blend up some fruit along with my sea moss and within minutes I was revived!
Sea moss is known for boosting energy, curing anemia, bettering your skin, helps with digestion problems as well as improving your mental and ect. I could go on and on with the benefits of sea moss, but I rather stick with telling you how it helped benefit me! For as long as I can remember, I always struggled to keep my body warm, now trying sea moss I can see how much warmer my body has become. I’ve also noticed how my skin has become much clearer and I feel like my face has more of a glow to it now. I have had acne problems since I hit puberty and I’m telling you, I’m loving my skin now!
So if you’re having any skin problems such as rashes, acne, eczema and or psoriasis, sea moss is the answer for you! Another problem I’ve been experiencing for a long time before converting to being vegan and fasting is constipation! And as you can imagine, constipation sucks! Constipation leaves you feeling bloated, full or causes stomach pain. Worry no more! Sea moss will definitely help aid with digestion, just changing your diet can also help!
Lastly, because of all the bad foods we put into our bodies, it has our mental out of wack! It definitely helps me to think clearer and tames my anxiety as well as it brings my stress levels down! As you all should know, stress is very dangerous to your health, so sea moss would definitely help in this area! If you always find yourself stressed, take some time to yourself and meditate (yes, it really helps)! I hope I’ve been helpful, please check back later for more health and beauty tips!
I have missed you so much! I have been enjoying life, taking time to myself and just learning more and more each day! As you know, it is now Winter (not my favorite season)! Being as though that it is now Winter the air is now cold and DRY and being that the air is dry this may cause dry skin, brittle hair and of course CHAPPED LIPS! I previously talked about chapped lips briefly, today I wanna get a little more into this topic.
We often try to treat our lips way after they have gotten chapped. They start off dry, then we lick. Then we lick, lick, lick, again and again. Then they start to get chapped and we try to use lip balm, at this point forget about it, it’s already way too late and our lips start to crack! Going through this cycle repeatedly your lips may become discolored from lack of moisture. (discoloration can also come from smoking, dehydration even applying lipstick can discolor your lips) which is why it’s so important that we try to keep our lips moist before they get dry and of course always make sure you stay hydrated!
Discoloration in the lips can be embarrassing and you might find yourself trying to cover it up with lipstick (and we all know that most lipsticks are toxic). Well, hide no more, Beauty! I have a solution for you! My lips had gotten really discolored, as you can see in the picture above on the left. I started dabbing apple cider vinegar on my lips with a cotton ball each time before I applied my lip scrub (lip scrub coming soon). Within two weeks my lips were revived of its color and were as plump as ever (as pictured above on the right)!
Apple cider vinegar is well known for it’s magical toning properties, so usually when I see discoloration on my skin, apple cider vinegar is my go to! Having a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in your tea can be very beneficial not only for your skin but for your health overall. It flushes the toxins out of your body, leading you to optimal health! I hope I’ve been helpful my beauties, please check back for more health and beauty tips. Love you all!
