  1. Quick Stress Relievers Everyone Can Use

    Quick Stress Relievers Everyone Can Use

    Stress is your body's way of responding to any kind of demand or threat. That demand or threat once upon a time was things like lions, tigers, or bears. Now, our stresses are slightly more tame: a looming deadline, a botched sales call, or a tricky office relationship.

    When you sense danger - whether real or imagined - the body kicks its defense mechanism into gear with the fight or flight response in an effort to save your life. Your body either wants to flee from the dangerous beast that's trying to eat you (or your lunch that's in the office fridge), or stand its ground and fight.

  2. Your Eyes Reveal More Than Just Your Soul

    Your Eyes Reveal More Than Just Your Soul

    Your eyes are most definitely the window to your soul. You've heard it a million times. People can really tell a lot about you from just looking into your eyes. That statement really seems to hold true when it comes to judging your willingness to tell the truth, your sincerity, and the depth of your heart if you follow the romantics.

    There have even been scientific studies that show personalities are linked to the irises of a subject's eyes, and that your eye color may even indicate your pain tolerance.

    That's all on a deep and personal level. But the skin around your eyes can tell a story all its own, too, indicating how much sleep you've received, how stressed you are, and whether you've done a good job protecting yourself from the sun. Your eyes really do reveal so much about you.

  3. Education Corner: What Are Topical Probiotics?

    banner

    What are topical probiotics?
    Probiotics in skincare draw a similar parallel to their usage in dietary supplement form. We ingest probiotics (living beneficial bacteria) orally to support overall body immunity. Our recognition and research into the skin as the immune organ that it is, has allowed us to launch an incredibly powerful skincare system that harnesses the most beneficial components of probiotics for topical application. These probiotic derivatives support and strengthen the skin's immune system for the ultimate defense against environmental aggressors that cause it to age, as well as give the skin the tools it needs to repair and rejuvenate itself naturally. Clinically, topical probiotic usage leads to a dramatic reduction in the visible signs of aging, including lines and wrinkle

  6. 10 Ways to Glow From The Inside Out

    10-ways-to-love-yourself-more When you’re being kind, considerate, compassionate and giving of yourself, your soul will rejoice. You’ve reached the highest level of self-love in this state of serving others. And even though it is good karma to be kind to others, sometimes we forget to include ourselves in the mix. Being kind to yourself is NOT selfish – in fact, it’s entirely selfless because when you feel good, you are more inclined to help others feel good as well. When I’m teaching yoga, I often reflect on this quote from Buddha: If your practice of compassion doesn’t include yourself, then it is incomplete. Find ways to do small and large things to appreciate those kind and generous souls that not only add abundance to their lives, but your life as well. By practicing conscious acts of kindness and giving, you can spread the love while also adding positivity to your life. Over time, you’ll realize that the only person who is responsible for your happiness and positive outloo

It's made with coconut water, chia seeds, lemon and a hint of agave nectar and is extremely effective in hydrating the body and balancing electrolytes after a good sweat.

    In fact, prebiotics are essential to probiotics carrying out their duties. Simply put, prebiotics are food for probiotics and they help increase the absorption of minerals in our body while bal

    sulfate-free-girl

    Over the last decade or so, more and more people have been jumping on the healthy lifestyle bandwagon - or pursuing a "greener" and "cleaner" life. We fill our plates with nutritious foods, drink plenty of water, exercise regularly and some of us have even adopted a daily meditation ritual to help better our health and well-being. However, despite our best efforts, we could still be exposing ourselves to an insane amount of toxins on a daily basis. In fact, some researchers have even suggested that the average woman uses products that contain 168 chemical ingredients on a daily basis. Yeah, let that bit of information sink in for a minute.

    How is this possible, you ask? Well, what we put on

    By now, you have probably read your fair share of skincare articles that tell you that one of the keys to nipping acne in the bud for clear, radiant skin starts with a healthy inside. For the most part, this information is very accurate - if you're fueling up on empty calories that are riddled with preservatives (chips, soda, fast food, etc.), not only are you going to feel terrible, your skin will start to look and feel that way too.
