Benefits of Sea Moss

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!

Detoxing

Welcome back, Beauties!

Today I wanna share an amazing tip with all of you. Detoxing! Detoxing is very important for overall health but also for clear, healthy skin. When I had started drinking a detox tea every day, I had noticed that my acne had suddenly disappeared! My face had gotten so much brighter, softer and blemish free! It’s important to start detoxing if you already aren’t because there are a lot of toxins clogging your pores as we speak.

My favorite way to detox is by drinking Triple Leaf Detox Tea every day. It’s made with potent Chinese purification herbs for healthy skin. It helps promote clear, healthy skin by cleansing the body of toxins. It’s suggested that you drink at least 2 cups a day, I drink it once a day and still got amazing results! You can drink it bland or add a little raw honey and lemon, which I prefer.

If tea isn’t really your thing, try making your own detox water. There are lots of detox water ideas online! I hope this tip was helpful, come check back later!

Benefits of Turmeric and face detoxing

Hello Beauties!

We all at some point, experience unwanted dark spots, acne and or an uneven skin tone. Turmeric can be the cure for all of that and much more! I love to use turmeric under my eyes when I’m experiencing dark circles or as a face mask to help even out my skin tone by erasing blemishes. After making a turmeric face mask my skin instantly feels so amazingly soft and so bright, leaving my skin glowing! So if you have unwanted scars, oily skin and acne, turmeric is the answer for you!

It’s important to always start on a clean face. As I said in my previous post, I love to wash my face with black soap (preferably Raw African Black Soap). I then like to tone my face with my apple cider toning potion, let it dry then apply my turmeric & honey mask (I mix honey and turmeric to the thickness of my liking) and let it sit for 15 mins. I rinse my face with cool water and pat my face dry with a paper towel. I reapply my apple cider toning potion, let it dry and apply my favorite face moisturizer.

Face detoxing can also help you battle acne as well as black heads and should be done daily. A face detox cleanses your pores and improves the skin tone. I love to use Moroccan red clay powder because it’s for sensitive skin and it’s pure powder! It cleanses and purifies my skin, making me glow. I like to add a few capsules of vitamin E because it helps heal acne scars as well as keeping your skin looking ageless! When I do the Moroccan red clay powder mask I do the same process I do with my turmeric mask instead just using Moroccan red clay powder instead.

Benefits of Aloe Vera

Hello beauties!

Let me start off by telling you that aloe vera is amazing, could really say it’s one of my best friends! Aloe vera has amazing healing properties; it can be used to heal acne, soften the skin and fade scars. After using it one night before bed, I woke up to a much clearer face! Couldn’t believe the results I gained so quickly! Aloe hydrates the skin, fades wrinkles and heals burns. So if you aren’t already using Aloe, why not?

IMG_8819

As you know by now the benefits are endless with Aloe! It also moisturizes and cleanses the skin without the worry of causing build up. I usually wash my face with black soap then apply my apple cider toning potion and let it dry. After letting it dry, I rub aloe Vera gel on my face and let it sit for 15 mins. I then wash my face off with warm water and dry my face with a paper towel. I reapply my apple cider toning potion, let it dry then apply my favorite moisturizer.

Not only is aloe beneficial but also very affordable! You can grow your own aloe plant or buy it by the leaf at your local super market. Be sure you clean your aloe leaf before cutting it open. I hope I’ve been helpful beauties, please feel free to reach out to me about anything! Come check back later for more health tips.

Benefits of Apple cider vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is awesome, especially for your skin in my experiences! Apple cider vinegar seems to fade pimples and scars overnight! Apple cider vinegar disputes wrinkles, clears/restores the skin and removes toxins! If it seems like you can’t get rid of acne no mater what you use, try apple cider vinegar! It will lift all the dirt in your pores.

IMG_8809

I have oily skin so I love to use apple cider vinegar as a toner. Apple cider vinegar alone can burn your skin so it’s important that you dilute it, making it half water and half apple cider vinegar. In my apple cider toning potion I love to add essential oils, one of my favorite oils I use is tea tree oil! Tea tree oil is good for combating acne. I usually have my apple cider toning potion in a spray bottle so that I can just spray it onto a cotton ball and rub my face before I go to bed.

Is that soap right for you?

Do you ever experience really dry, rough skin after getting out of the shower? The toxins in your soap could be the culprit! Some of the harmful ingredients found in soaps can affect your hormones, cause allergic reactions and dryness. Most soaps on the market eat away at your skin, strips your skin of its natural oils and ages you faster. Sometimes you can still experience dryness after putting tons of lotion on.

So if you aren’t already using Black Soap, next time you go to your local market pick some up! Black Soap treats acne, vanish dark spots, lightly cleanses the skin to prevent stripping you of your natural oils. If you want other than black soap be sure to read ingredients and be aware of harmful toxins that can irritate the skin, such as sodium lauryl which is usually found in detergents, parabens which affect your hormones and diethanolamine which can obstruct nutrients. Black soap promotes smooth, soft and moisturized skin. It has truly been a skin curer for me and my experiences. I hope I’ve been helpful, come check back later for daily tips!

Exercise + Sleep = beautiful skin

Exercise promotes healthy, beautiful skin. By exercising, your blood circulation increases; carrying cell ravage off. While you’re working out and you start to sweat, be happy! It carries away all the dirt in your sweat glands.

Sleep also contributes to having healthy, beautiful skin. Have you ever woke up to a nice glow after a good nights sleep? Not getting enough sleep can cause dark circles under the eyes and wrinkles. So be sure to get some good sleep tonight and maybe take a morning run! I hope I’ve been helpful, please come check back later.
