I am big advocate of using natural, toxin-free (and even organic when possible) beauty care products for me and family. With more studies coming out every day on the shockingly harmful effects of the chemicals, preservatives, lab fabricated fragrances and cheaper ‘natural’ alternatives have on the functioning of organs of our body , I am more adamant than ever that those chemically loaded products from the brands that we all have grown up with and come to love (Johnson&Johnsons, Dove, Aveda and yes even Chanel )… no longer have a place in my home!
And here’s more from one of my favorite award winning Dubai based (but formulated in Germany) skin care and body care brands, Herbal Essentials!
Did you know that all of their products are made with Himalayan spring water and pure essential oils?
Also it’s free of the major nasties ( that are quite harmful to the body) that most branded products out on the shelves contain… and it’s certified cruelty free.
Herbal Essentials have a special offer this Eid with 20% of their products and complimentary delivery within the GCC! Just use code EID2016HE and also receive a surprise product with order. Don’t you just love surprises? I know I do
From the latest beauty magazines to your fitness buff neighbor living next door, if you haven’t heard about detoxing then you must have been hiding under a rock for the last ten years somewhere in Kalamazoo. It can seem trendy, exciting yet unnervingly daunting all at the same time…and the big question is, “HOW exactly do I do a detox?”
I was introduced to meditation when I started yoga classes at the tender age of 18 (yes, just a young punk now that I look back lol). The whole process of the physical movement of yoga postures along with the moments of inward silence really resonated with me and always left me feeling refreshed and completely re-engergized. Even at such a young age, I think a part of me knew that I had managed to stumble on a gold mine of a technique that could potentially unleash my super powers. Over the years, I have come to learn about the never ending list of physical, mental, emotional (and did I mention anti-aging?) benefits that comes a lot with that feel good burst of energy.
This initial experience with meditation was probably the trigger that led me to become the Holistic Therapist and Trainer that I am today. And for that I am ever so grateful.
Guess what lovelies? I had the unbelievable opportunity to interview the beautiful Nitika Chopra, the inspirational Self Love Guru based out New York City. She has created quite a buzz on spreading self love and natural beauty to women across the US and even the around the globe. I have been following her on social media and her blog for sometime now, and I’ve always loved how she shares her personal stories so candidly and with an open heart. She truly is so charming and easy to talk to, no wonder so many women connect with her!
Read her more about Nitika below, be sure to check out her show on Z Living Network and her blog nitikachopra.com
Almost 90 percent of all women have cellulite (‘orange peel skin’ as it’s nicknamed) at some point in their life, and it’s a misconception that you have to be overweight to have it. Women and even men pay thousands of dollars in treatments that claim to treat this skin condition, contributing to an ever growing industry that brings in millions of dollars every year. Why spend all that time and money on treatments (that can even be hazardous) when you can do it naturally at home? more “Baam! Pow!: Cellulite Busting Home Remedies”…
I have been hearing the buzz around town and in all the beauty magazine about a miraculous all natural soy based product that has astounding results through releasing excess centimeters off the body, by the rather curious name of Shrinking Violet. Testimonials rave about how many centimeters thinner (in some case up to 20 cm) they somehow magically let go of after a few sessions of oil-lathering-plastic-wrapping. Huh? Could this really be natural and does is really work?
I was invited to test out the newly launched mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy from o2 Life, and as you may be thinking right now, I had absolutely no idea what that meant. Upon the initial viewing of chamber, I found it a little intimidating, not to mention claustrophobic, and my first thought was, “why would anyone willingly want to zipped up in a sausage-like white bubble for one whole hour??”
I am beaming with happiness that so many friends and even family members are expecting little bundles of joy! Its always so exciting and brings that bubbling joyful feeling inside my heart (even though I’m not the expecting mama).
During my various pregnancies and particularly the first one, I really appreciated the first hand advice and tips that I received from my friends that already had been there, and done that. After having three children, and experiencing the up and downs that pregnancy can present I believe that I have a few of my own tips that I can now pass on to all those new mamas -to-be out there.
