Three weeks to summer: holistic beauty boosters
There’s only so much exercise and healthy eating a girl can do. So if you’re all tapped out when it comes to these areas, why not try something new? These holistic beauty boosters may be just the key to being your happiest, healthiest self this summer.
Dry body brushing
Adding a quick dry body brushing session to your pre-shower routine will benefit you on both the inside and outside. Along with removing dead skin and combating cellulite, the natural bristle brush will also help to break down unwanted toxins in the body, strengthen your immunity and increase blood flow to the heart. Just be sure to use gentle, upward strokes, starting at the feet and moving up towards the heart.
Green juices have been hyped up a lot lately, but are they really worth the time and mess to make? Well, if you think more energy, better immunity and even a little weight loss are worth striving for – get juicing! To ensure you’re receiving the maximum benefits, keep your juices 50-50 when it comes to fruit and vegetables. Greens like spinach, swiss chard, kale and cucumber are great for beginners.
If you thought mediation was only for hippies, think again. The practice can actually be done by anyone at anytime, anywhere. Meditation has the ability to decrease tension-related pain (think headaches, muscle and joint problems), lower high blood pressure and improve mood and behaviour. Start by finding a quiet space to sit down, close your eyes and focus your mind until you feel calm. Try to do this for five minutes a day, gradually increasing to 20 minutes as you get better.
This amazing superfood is high in protein, iron, vitamin B12, chlorophyll and antioxidants. Throw it into smoothies, avocado spreads, protein balls or salad dressings to treat your body to a whole bunch of nutrients that boost energy and support key body parts like the eyes, brain, heart and immune system. It’s the perfect everyday diet addition for those looking to enhance overall good health.
