Why The Chemically Based Billion Dollar Beauty Industry Is Harmful & What You Can Use Instead

Published

on

Do you have skin like the model in this photo does? Nope, me either. The beauty industry, which is set to be worth 265 Billion by 2017, is full of images like the one above, but these girls are often heavily airbrushed and altered to make people think their skin is perfect and that if you buy the product they are promoting, then you’re going to have perfect skin too. But logically we know that most of the time, skincare just doesn’t work that way, especially if the products we use are not formulated well or are full of chemicals that can make your skin (and health!) worse over time. Many women don ‘t realize that their skin products will actually age them in the long run, not to mention damage their vital organs.

It’s true though isn’t it, that the first thing someone notices about you, and you about them, is usually their skin.

If we don’t have naturally good skin, is it possible to drastically improve it without harsh treatments and toxic ingredients, and without spending a lot of money? Can we really clear up acne quickly and safely, without using chemicals or drugs?

As an ex-cosmetician who has been interested in the skin for a very long time, I found it really disheartening to think that for big changes in the skin to happen some harsh treatments may in fact be needed. But that was before I found out about this amazing new product.

I’m thrilled to say that recently I came across Herbal Face Food TM – created by J. Michael Zenn, microbiologist and herbalist – which is a world first organic serum containing a special blend of  100% organic and wild-harvested essential oils, concentrates, and extracts that are sourced from all over the world. Also unique about this serum is the fact that it contains a heretofore unheard of ORAC score of 10 million!

ORAC means “Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity” and is a rating system created by scientists at the National Institutes of Health to measure a food’s antioxidant capacity. Foods that have a higher ORAC score contain more antioxidants, which are essential for good health and good skin. Other types of natural skin care products often receive up to a 100,000 ORAC score. I used to think that was pretty good, but once I learned that there was a product like Herbal Face Food out there with a score of 10 million, I knew I needed to try it. Now, I totally get that skin is usually a reflection of what’s going on on the inside. You’ve got to eat right and take good supplements to have good skin. But I think using the right products on the outside can effect change on the inside too. You’ve just got to know what works.

Main Ingredients Of Herbal Face Food And Why They Work So Effectively

1) Herbal Face Food TM married spicy hot with cooling herbs so you get the powerful benefits of antioxidants and enzymes.
Clove, oregano, and thyme are SPICY herbs.

Myrrh has been celebrated throughout history as very precious. It has anti-aging effects on the skin and a wonderful perfume.

2) The serum doesn’t just contain essential oils. The plants in the product are a combination of concentrates, extracts, essential oils, CO2 extractions (this method ensures the most potent extracts), and plant particles from the bud, leaf, root, fruit, and pulp, allowing for maximum nutrients and powerful effects.
Aloe Vera, healing, soothing. cooling, treats acne, is anti-aging.

Skin Face Food May Help Your Health Internally Too

It’s not often a skincare product can do this, but due to the presence of powerful essential oils and other penetrative ingredients (essential oils can penetrate across the blood brain barrier), Herbal Face Food TM can work its magic deep inside the body too.

Many people who say they’ve tried “everything, so many diets, supplements etc.” are saying that Herbal Face Food has worked for them when nothing else did. I personally believe it’s because of the special intensive essential oils in the formula that people are noticing drastically improved skin. The high ORAC rating would also be responsible for this impressive reaction.  I think Herbal Face Food TM is a great way to treat both the outside and the inside, as essential oils can work in harmony with whole body system.

Herbal Face Food TM is very potent and powerful and should be used 2x a day – morning and night. A 2oz full size bottle is made to last a month to 6 weeks. If someone is dealing with severe acne, cystic acne, scarring, melisma, or hyperpigmentation they can use it more often to see quicker results.

Did you know: “You eat what you put on your skin”? 

It’s true. 70% of what you rub on your skin gets absorbed into your bloodstream. Toxins from conventional skincare products (linked to cancer amongst other things!), can be found in your blood within minutes and in your organs within hours after applying.

If you wouldn’t eat something or don’t want it in your body, then please don’t put it on your skin. But when you rub Herbal Face Food TM into your skin, it’s like feeding your face and your body a pure, healthy, concentrated salad. Herbal Face Food TM patent-pending plant formulation helps heal the ten most visible signs of aging: wrinkles, enlarged pores, dryness, discoloration, loss of radiance, redness, uneven skin tone, loss of firmness, loss of smoothness, and impurities/toxins.

Benefits Of Herbal Face Food:

  • treats eczema, rosacea, psoriasis, acne
  • treats melasma
  • helps bug bites, burns, and scars
  • acts as a natural deodorant
  • reduces wrinkles and sun damage
  • deeply hydrates and nourishes

  • antioxidant
  • anti-inflammatory
  • anti-bacterial
  • anti-fungal

  • anti-aging

What Is It Like To Use Herbal Face Food?

Herbal Face Food TM has a powerful herbal scent. These plant concentrates are extremely “aroma therapeutic.” Many experience relaxation and a sense of well-being after use. It absorbs rapidly and the aroma generally fades in 15 minutes.  The company says they “cannot alter the powerful scent without distorting the healing powers of the plant.”

Upon application, Herbal Face Food TM will create a thermophillic effect upon your skin. This stinging to burning sensation can last up to a minute or two. This is totally normal and signifies that the powerful plant antioxidants and enzymes are stimulating and working deep in the skin cells.

Herbal Face Food TM has been used not just for the complexion but for a number of other things as well. Many people now use two drops of Herbal Face Food TM on their toothbrush for bleeding or receding gums. The company have a handful of clients that have offered testimonials claiming that their skin cancer has reduced or gone away entirely. Herbal Face Food TM however, does not claim they cure cancer.

Tips On Overcoming Sleep Problems During Pregnancy

Published

on

Getting a Good Night’s Sleep in the Third Trimester is a Challenge

As the body changes, a pregnant woman may suddenly find a handful of reasons she can’t get to sleep at night. Try these tips for an uninterrupted night’s sleep.

A common complaint among pregnant women, particularly those in their third trimester, is the inability to fall (and stay) asleep at night. Many factors are often to blame, making it difficult to know exactly how to address the issue. From growing size to frequent urination, there seems to be no break for a rest. But some very basic techniques can help pregnant women get the sleep they need.

Why Can’t I Sleep?

As the body changes throughout the first and second trimesters, some women may notice changes in their sleeping pattern. Most, however, aren’t too affected until they reach month seven or so. As the body rapidly adapts to the growing baby, some issues may arise:

Frequent urination can be a huge annoyance. As the kidneys do double-duty to filter the increased blood volume (about 40% more than normal), the body produces more urine. At the same time, the baby’s growth has increased pressure on the bladder, making the time between bathroom trips very short. Babies active at night may also increase the number of trips for some mothers.

A rapid heartbeat is needed to pump that extra blood throughout the body, but some women find it difficult to relax in these circumstances.

Shortness of breath, due to pressure on the lungs and the release of certain hormones, can make it a challenge to fall asleep at night. As the fetus grows, the diaphragm will compress more and more, increasing the pressure on the lungs.

Aches and pains are quite common, since a pregnant woman’s center of balance shifts and places extra pressure on new areas. Leg cramps and lower back pain are a typical night-time complaint since the hormone relaxin is working to stretch out and loosen the ligaments to prepare for delivery. Injuries and strains become more likely later in pregnancy.

Digestive problems, like heartburn and constipation, abound as the process of digestion slows down. Food backs up in the digestive tract, taking longer to break down, and the result is mom’s discomfort.

Get Comfortable

Doctors recommend that pregnant women lay on their side at night to allow proper blood flow throughout the body. For stomach- and back-sleepers this might be difficult, but it’s important. Choosing a comfortable mattress and pillows is a must as they will help make a pregnant woman more comfortable at night. Use pillows under the belly, behind the back, and between the legs. Try experimenting with different pillows (body pillows, wedges, etc.) and different positions.

Get Prepared

When it’s almost time to get to sleep, start preparing the body for bedtime. Take a relaxing bath, have a glass of warm mylk, or a night-time massage. Putting the mind at ease can help make the transition to sleep easier. For some, foods high in carbohydrates, like a snack of bread or crackers, will help with sleep troubles. And to limit bathroom trips, be sure to avoid drinking fluids too close to bedtime!

Get Healthy

The right nutrition and exercise can go a long way, especially during pregnancy. Certain things should be avoided and added to optimize sleep:

Adding calcium to the diet will help to curb those painful leg cramps.

Protein-rich diets can ward off those unpleasant pregnancy nightmares.

Skipping caffeine, or limiting it as much as possible, can have a dramatic effect. Many pregnant women’s bodies cannot break down caffeine, so it remains in the system much longer than usual.

Avoid foods that trigger heartburn.

Get enough fibre to reduce constipation.

Try yoga for relaxation, walks to keep joints limber and moderate activity to help promote sleep. Adding exercise every day might be the key to getting to bed at night.

Paying attention to the body, staying relaxed, and getting the right nutrition is essential to quieting the mind and getting a good night’s sleep during pregnancy. Follow these tips and try to stay positive; only a few more months (or weeks) to go!

8 Comics Showing How Much Today’s Childhood Differs From Ours

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The childhood experience today is inevitably affected by--and sometimes even centered on--technology.

  • Reflect On:

    What is technology giving to our children, and what is it taking away? Should we be more proactive about our children's exposure to technology?

When I was a child, there was no shortage of getting told by our parents and other adults about how much better we had things than they did when they were children.  Stories of having to walk for miles to go to school, sleeping in the same bed until they became an adult, having the same food all the time, and having only a few simple toys to last them several years were not uncommon at all. There was a definite sense that as society modernized, things were getting better for children.

And as children we certainly didn’t disagree — hearing our parents’ stories did indeed make us feel that we were better off than they were. We certainly would not be inclined to exchange our childhood for their more rugged, austere version. And yes, to some extent these stories gave us a bit more ‘appreciation’ for what we had, despite not showing enough of it to satisfy our parents.

How About Today?

Today, I’m not sure that familiar line of conversation that has spanned many generations is going on anymore between parents and children. As the father of a 4-year old, the most immediate difference I notice is that we seem to have less time for our children than our parents did, especially if both parents are working full-time, which is just about a requirement these days.

The other major difference is the level of technology children have access to. And in some ways, technology has come in and ‘filled the gap’ where a parent’s attention is absent. Now, undoubtedly, there are some benefits to technology for our children. But when we take time to reflect on it, we might recognize that we have come to a particular stage in the modernization of our society where most of us are not sure that ‘newer, bigger, faster, more convenient’ is necessarily better, especially with regards to the type of childhood that serves as a foundation for a happy and prosperous adult life.

Here are 8 pictures comparing childhoods then and now, where technology has become ubiquitous in the lives of our children. Do you think our children have it better than we did?

Are they having more fun?

advertisement - learn more

Are they being more creative?

Are they more ambitious?

Are they healthier?

Are they understanding consequences better?

Are they feeling things more deeply?

Are they experiencing more frustration?

Is their sense of wonder being cultivated more?

How Did You Score It?

How you answer these questions might give you some insight into how much you want your children’s early experiences to be influenced by technology. As everyone knows, childhood is the most formative time of a person’s life, which is why, as parents, some of the choices within our control that we make about our children’s exposure to technology might have a significant impact.
