SKINNYMINT 28 DAY TEATOX

Hey Beauties ! Today I want to share and talk about trying Skinnymint detoxing tea.  Now that its summer and we all want to get fit and flaunt our summer tanned sexy bodies! As well as,  have clear flawless looking skin with as minimum makeup as possible! Haha, natural look is always effortless yet beyond GORGEOUS ;). Alright, let’s get into it, shall we…

What is the Skinnymint 28 Day Teatox?The 28 day teatox consists of drinking two varieties of tea – one ‘Morning Boost’ which is drank each morning to give you a bit of pep and energy. ‘Night Cleanse’ is drank last thing in the evening every second night, to help ‘flush out toxins’ and remedy bloating and constipation. You receive 28 morning tea bags and 14 night time tea bags.
The aim of ‘teatoxing’ is to ‘help boost your metabolism, flush out toxins, reduce bloating and burn fat’. The teas are drank alongside whatever you usually eat, and can simply replace your usual morning and evening drinks.Morning Boost is primarily a green tea blend, with over half the contents of each teabag being green tea leaves. Green tea is a well known aid when it comes to weight loss, helping to boost the metabolism and burn fat more efficiently.

Night Cleanse is a senna tea, supported by a host of other ingredients which boost senna’s main property as a laxative. Following from senna we have ginger root. Skinnymint were quite clever in including this guy, as ginger will help in soothing the digestive tracts after senna has done its thing by irritating them. Gingers soothing properties has actually made it quite popular with those who suffer with irritable bowel syndrome!Peppermint leaf is a genuine wonder ingredient and peppermint tea is something I’ve actually drank for years. It’s brilliant for stomach aches and cramps. Peppermint is also a great aid in stopping bloating, as it helps you rid excess gas (yup, burping and farting – better out than in) which can make your stomach appear flatter.
Licorice root and psyllium husk are both included in the mix, licorice for its ability to soothe the stomach no doubt, and psyllium for its fiber and colon cleansing power. We also have hawthorn berry thrown in, which helps with anxiety, insomnia and mood-swings.

How do they taste?I have heard that ‘Morning Blend’ tastes like fruity green tea, as you might expect! The trick is NOT to brew it in boiling water, as that creates the nasty bitter taste I’m sure more than a handful of us associate with green tea.’Night Cleanse’ is pretty darn gingery, which makes it taste very warming and soothing. Ginger is the only flavour you get from this, then again, it is the strongest spice so it’s to be expected. If either tea isn’t to your taste, you can always add lemon or other citrus fruit, mint, herbs, cinnamon or honey to the blend without hindering their diuretic/ laxative properties. They can also be prepared in advance, kept in the fridge and served with ice.I will surely do an updated post on how well it works after trying it!! So stay tuned for that! 🙂

Get Moving!

Monday is the perfect day to kick your week off on a fit and healthy note. In light of summer and all the fun things that come with it, such as trips to the beach and pool parties, I wanted to share a great motivational tip for you guys to keep in mind throughout the week:
get moving quote
I love this quote because it inspires me to get moving! Even the simplest of exercises and moves, such as walking or jogging, can make us happy. Our mood becomes more positive because natural chemicals in the body, called endorphins, are released during exercise. These chemicals interact with our brain, reducing stress, warding off anxiety, boosting self-esteem, and improving sleep. Oh yeah, and exercise is great for getting a fit, fab bod too!
Not only is exercise a positive influence on your body, as well as essential for your health, but it can also be a lot of fun! Single song workouts  and simple moves for different areas of your body are fun ways to keep moving. Each day I try to do something from my 3 Moves Series. I do moves for my arms, my booty, my abs, and my legs! And all of these routines take less than 15 minutes. So why not get your workout on and boost your mood at the same time?

What exercises are you going to do to get moving this Monday?

Benefits Of Yoga

yoga image 1 3649Hey Beauties! Today I wanted to share some quick benefits of doing yoga with you guys. Yoga is really helpful with A LOT of things, see for yourself!

Physical: The movements of yoga will carve out a long, lean, strong, and confident body.

Mental: All those deep breaths reset your mind back to its natural state: calm, focused, and sharp.

Psychological: All the focusing inward illuminates our behaviors and tendencies. The same habits we have on our mat are the ones we have in our lives. We see this, and we gain the freedom of choice. Who do I want to be? We get to create or re- create ourselves each day. Regular practice gives you a clear mind and the inspiration and courage to be constantly expanding and improving your life.

Neurological: When your brain is “on yoga” your neurological system is brought back into balance and is conditioned to steer you naturally toward a healthy lifestyle. Our bodies are constantly rewired to make whatever we practice get easier. When we practice healthy, balanced living we get more healthy, balanced living.

Intuitive: When there is tension in the body and mind, your intuition gets buried and your body switches to survival mode. Your yoga practice makes space in your body physically, releases tension, and calms your mind, making room for your intuition to float to the surface and guide you.

Creative: Creative juices start to flow when your body and mind begin to release mental blocks. Creativity doesn’t like to come out when there are stressors, whether from physical tension or mental cloudiness. When the stress melts away, creativity can come out to play.

Connected: Yoga is the practice of getting connected. However you choose to view your spirituality, when you practice yoga, you remember that we all are connected, here to help each other, and that we have so much potential when we are kind to others.

5 Reasons to Love Lemon Water

Hey beauties! I love being inspired to write posts about healthy new discoveries. Today’s post is about something that I find very interesting, and I’m sure you will too! I’m going to tell you a bit about why you should be drinking lemon water every morning and how your body and mind will benefit from doing so.

Here are five reasons why you should start your morning with a refreshing glass of lemon water:

1. It detoxes your body. According to Natural News, citric acid (found in lemons, oranges and limes) does a great job at cleaning out your system and detoxifying your body. Drink up to get those toxins out!

2. It works wonders for your skin. Since lemons have a ton of vitamin C—a vitamin that rejuvenates your skin—drinking lemon water will help to give you a clear complexion. And, according to Cajunlicious, not only will it freshen up your face, it will also freshen your breath!

3. It helps with digestion. Lemon juice helps your body to flush out bacteria that hinders digestion. It will also help your body to do a better job at flushing out toxins.

4. It wakes you up. According to Livestrong, lemon water is a natural energy drink. Not only is it way healthier than coffee or chemical-filled energy drinks like Red Bull, but drinking it regularly is also said to give you more energy than these caffeinated beverages.

5. It keeps you slim. Making lemon water a part of your daily routine will help keep your body looking like a lean machine in several different ways: Lemons have fiber, which helps to stave off hunger cravings, and drinking a glass of lemon water will help you stay full longer throughout the day. In addition, MindBodyGreen reports that it boosts your metabolism. What’s not to love!?

A glass of water with a twist of lemon is such a rejuvenating way to start your entire day. The strong citrus taste may take a bit of getting used to, but drinking this elixir is definitely worth it. Just taking one look at the many health benefits above makes me want to gulp down a glass right now…

Will you try drinking lemon water each morning? Do you have any health tips you would like me to share in a post?

Leave your comments, questions and blog requests below and I’ll be sure to check them out 🙂

Exploring Manuka Honey Benefits

By RubyBeautyOrganics

Honey, that wondrous miracle product of nature and nature’s little helper, the bees. Its numerous uses and benefits are well-known throughout the decades. An ancient Greek physician dubbed honey as “good for all rotten and hollow ulcers.” Today we still use it for its healing properties. So what makes the recently popular Manuka honey special when there are numerous benefits already that can be obtained from any ordinary honey? What sets Manuka honey apart?

Honey, that wondrous miracle product of nature and nature’s little helper, the bees. Its numerous uses and benefits are well-known throughout the decades. An ancient Greek physician dubbed honey as “good for all rotten and hollow ulcers.” Today we still use it for its healing properties. So what makes the recently popular Manuka honey special when there are numerous benefits already that can be obtained from any ordinary honey? What sets Manuka honey apart?

Taking a quick look at the background of Manuka honey will probably already set it apart from the rest. It is not just any ordinary honey, but a special honey that is made from the nectars obtained from Manuka bushes in New Zealand. Manuka bushes are uncultured and are known to have antibacterial effects.All honeys have antibacterial effects because they discharge hydrogen peroxide that can eliminate bacteria. But the manuka honey aside from releasing hydrogen peroxide also releases more antibacterial compounds that are non-peroxide.

Manuka honey, because of its antimicrobial properties can help treat a wide array of diseases. It is well-known for curing stomach ulcers. This is done by inhibiting the growth of helicobacter pylori or H. pylori, the bacteria that causes ulcers and dyspepsia. Other ordinary honeys do not exhibit the same result in fighting against H. pylori.Taking a teaspoon one hour before meals and one at bedtime will provide beneficial results. Another bacteria that can be eliminated using Manuka honey is the bacteria that causes sore throat. It shows that propolis or the antibiotic substance in honey is the substance that is most effective against bacteria. .

There are several Manuka honey benefits for various skin disorders like ulcers, boils, cracked skin and wounds. Its antimicrobial properties can diffuse into the skin which in effect kills even germs buried deep within.  It is effective in cleaning wounds which makes healing faster. It also lessens scarring because it aids in the cell formation that will ultimately avoids scar to appear. It also has anti-inflammatory qualities that will prevent swelling.

There are however various grades of Manuka honey to test its effectiveness against ailments. TradeNZ and Honey Research Unit established a classification of antibacterial qualities of honey. UMF or Unique Manuka Factor is created to rate the antibacterial activity. UMF registered trademarks are the ones considered to have therapeutic benefits. UMF strength of 10 or more is the grade ideal for healing.
