Traveling…I get asked all the time what I pack when I travel. Besides the obvious of clothes & shoes, I always pack these extras. Years ago I wasn’t so natural. I would pack items from a drugstore for coughs, colds and sniffles, headaches, tummy aches – you know- whatever might come up when you are travelling with your family…something for stress reduction!, but over the years I’ve become a lot more preventative with keeping my immune system strong and therefore no more of those. I’ve upped my nutrition and it comes with me. I’m all natural when it comes to what I put on my skin and in my body. And yes, I feel the benefits. I’ve got natural items for digestion, headaches, too much time in the sun, staying calm, having great sleeps and more.

coconutWhy use coconut oil in your smoothies?

Coconut Oil

Healthy fat that is a highly efficient fuel that helps your body burn fat and create instant energy. Can raise your HDL (good cholesterol) and help to protect you against heart disease. Coconut oil will boost your immune system, plus it’s a natural antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory, making it very effective at combating yeast and parasites.4

Coconut Oil is ideal for dry, rough and wrinkled skin because it contains MCFA’s (medium chained fatty acids) and is easily absorbed by the skin. It prevents stretch marks and lightens existing ones.  Its antiseptic elements keep the skin young, healthy and free from infections.  It’s also an excellent lip balm5.

I keep it in my bathroom, kitchen and a little jar in my purse.

Consuming coconut oil regularly restores thyroid function, often relieves hypothyroidism and actually increase the metabolic rate, leading to weight loss

Tanya’s 5 Beauty Secrets

I have searched high and low for natural beauty tips that are effective, simple and won’t break my bank account. I thought I would start by focusing on our skin, which is our largest organ and absorbs everything we put on it into our bloodstream, and hair!

Who doesn’t want thick, gorgeous hair and radiating skin? Our skin is a road map to deeper issues within us. When we have something wrong with our skin we tend to cover it up with creams, lotions, and/or makeup and clog our precious pours that are trying to breath! Instead, it is wise to take a look at the root cause and ask ourselves, “Why is my face breaking out” “Why am I aging so quickly” “Why does my hair look so dull and keep splitting”. I want to keep this as simple as possible but I always love knowing the “WHY” which helps me to make changes a lifelong habit instead of a one week trick!

Here are 5 of my many secrets….

  • Lemon and water every morning (sometimes I add a sprinkle of cayenne!)
  • Nutrition aka Juicing
  • Dry Brushing
  • Coconut oil
  • Ho Shou Wu

BEAUTY TIP #1 LEMONS or Limes!!!

Can you say CLEANSING!!!

Start your day off with this incredible cleansing and mucous dissolving drink that will have your cells jumping for JOY. Your other “morning choice” may be depleting essential nutrients from your cells, exhausting your adrenals and irritating or thickening your skin and other organs.1

Not ready to give up your morning java? Just have water and lemon while it’s brewing!

BEAUTY TIP #2 Juicing

You have finished your lemon and water and are ready for more!!Would you rather sit down and eat a pound of vegetables (green is the colour of choice), chewing, chewing & still more chewing into very small pieces for high absorption, or juice and sip?

Juicing allows all the nutrients to quickly enter into your cells doing a happy dance while spreading vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, chlorophyll, enzymes and antioxidants EVERYWHERE without the energy of digestion.

Beauty starts from the INSIDE!! Vegetables and fruits are nature’s gifts to healing and repairing our body…and….juicing happens to be the best and fastest way to do it. So, hydrate your body, and allow your cells to soak up all the life-giving nutrients. This provides you with radiating skin, anti-aging arsenal, clear eyes and boundless energy. Let’s not forget strong nails, white & strong teeth and gums, and thick hair.

Using organic produce will ensure reduced or the absence of pesticides, free from GMO’s and irradiation. Thereby providing you with the BEST for your BODY!

Basic Beauty Juice

1 apple

½ – 1 cucumber

2-4 stalks of celery

½ – 1 peeled lemon (if organic use half with the peel on)

Wash and then put through your juicer!! I love my Omega 8006 and for a quick juice the Jack Lalanne juicer

Gorgeous Juice

Ingredients from Basic Beauty Juice,

Plus 1-2 handfuls of a dark leafy green (kale, swiss chard, lettuce)

Small handful of parsley or cilantro

Wash and then put through your juicer!!

Enjoy these great two juices and feel the radiance of your beauty!

BEAUTY TIP #3 Dry Brushing

Whether you use a natural bristle brush, a dry brushing mitt, a cheap loofah glove (I’ve tried them all and have finally found the VERY BEST from Living Libations which all my clients love as well), give your body a scrub and

  • Loosen the dead cells to allow the toxins a quick and clear exit out of your skin!
  • Leave your skin SOFT and GLOWING
  • Reduce CELLULITE,
  • Stimulate your immune system
  • Wake up your circulation,
  • Move your lymph
  • And so much more!

“THEY” say to start at your feet and work up and sometimes I do, other days I don’t. The key is to make it FUN and a part of your day! Then jump in the shower!

LOVE LOVE LOVE Living Libations. I use their dry brushes, lymph+ tonic, dew dab and best skin ever seabuckthorn (not to mention their shampoo/conditioner/healthy teeth products and more)

BEAUTY TIP #4 Coconut Oil

I used to suffocate my skin with creams that promised “no wrinkles” and spend a tiny fortune trying this and that. Slowly but surely I started to read labels and realized that what we put on our skin enters our blood stream and heads towards our cells and hangs out there…..creating toxic waste…YIKES! So, if I couldn’t eat the creams, lotions, serums I had in my beauty case, out they went. This led me to use coconut oil and aloe vera right from the plant. Both of these choices I can eat so no more chemicals being dumped into my cells.

Coconut oil contains pregnenolone (an antioxidant) which improves circulation in the skin, gives the face a lift, restores sagging skin and reduces bags under the eyes…don’t everyone run out at once!!! 2

This being said, when you eat a nutrient dense diet you will notice that your skin won’t need as much lotion! Try out the avocado mask and the [youtube http://youtube.com/w/?v=d1mRSp5Icrw&list=UUb9X-1EHXOZIdJlOzHJeRcg&index=2&feature=plcp]!

BEAUTY TIP #5 Whole Food Nutrition

If your hair is brittle and going grayer by the minute, your diet may be lacking specific minerals! No amount of hair product is going to change this problem…it may cover it up but your graying, brittle, lifeless hair will still be there! BOO HOO!

Are you getting all the nutrition you need for healthy skin, hair, nails etc. Check out this link for this Beauty Tip!
