Benefits of Oranges and Get Some Egg On Your Face! Healthy Food Tips and Natural Skin Care!

orange benefits

Did you know the smell of orange can reduce stress by up to 70%? You know that smell when you first start peeling an orange and you get that burst of citrus? Oooo, that smells oh so good!!! 😃
There are many benefits to eating oranges. We all know about the Vitamin C. But, oranges are also rich in fiber (17% of your daily allowance is in one large orange), and they can also improve heart health. Studies have also shown that the flavonoids may preserve brain health. Oranges enhance immunity, digestion, and skin health! They are full of other micronutrients too, like folate, potassium, and thiamine, and it’s no secret that the antioxidants in oranges in skin care has pretty impressive results like anti-aging, anti-wrinkle, UV protection, and decreasing age spots! Ask me which Posh products have loads of orange in them!

Oranges are low in calories, but you won’t get the same benefits by drinking orange juice. The fiber in the whole orange slows down absorption of sugar into the bloodstream, so make sure you go for the whole orange. 🍊

I’m really enjoying how this new Egg On Your Face with Korean skin care technology cleanser is making my skin look and feel!!! Awesome!!!! 👍🌺🌈
It is a very nourishing cleanser that is great for sensitive skin and formulated for all skin types.
This is a Wonderful Winter cleanser that gently washes away toxins, makeup, dirt, and excess oil while it adds Poshbiotics to your face! What is that???? 🤔 Well, Poshbiotics is a proprietary blend by Perfectly Posh of pre and probiotics, milk and eggs that soothes, smoothes, and balances pH. I’ve noticed more even skin tone and a softer smoother complexion. It comes in a nice 4 oz. tube and smells very lovely!!! It’s a top notch way to pamper your face! 🧚‍♀️🧚‍♀️🧚‍♀️

The Benefits of Sunlight!

benefits of sun

Spring is a time of renewal, and we are able to get outside so much more and enjoy the benefits of sunshine and fresh air! I would add to the list below, that sunshine can help with depression, children thrive and grow more in the Summer, our hair grows faster, sunlight kills bacteria, and benefits skin disorders such as eczema, acne, and fungal infections. It is especially beneficial to get outside in the mornings for sleep, because this sets our circadian rhythm, our internal body clock which tells us when to sleep, rise, eat, and go to bed.

I always sleep better in the Summer and on days when I am outside more. I have had my Vitamin D levels checked twice a year for several years, and I don’t have to supplement in the Summertime, because my levels go up due to the increased sunshine!!! I’m living proof straight from the lab that we absorb Vitamin D from the sun. My hair definitely grows faster in the Summer. Does yours? My children have all had big growth spurts in the Summer and always go back to school looking healthier, with rosy cheeks and a glow to their skin!

Remember to wear your sunscreen and spend no more than 15 minutes in the sun without it. Enjoy the benefits of our beautiful Sun!

Have a super day!


Stress and Anxiety Reducing Color Therapy (Coloring Isn’t Just for Kids)

Coloring for Adults to reduce stress or anxiety and increase a sense of well being? That’s what this book I found at a local book store recently claims. Currently, Color Therapy books are outselling cookbooks in France. See this article in the Huffington Post. The beautiful hardcover and intricate pictures piqued my interest. Stress reduction is one of the areas I work on with my clients. Coloring therapy books are currently outselling cookbooks in France. With stress on the rise, it is becoming more and more difficult to unwind, focus and decompress. I picked up a copy and couldn’t wait to get started and give it a try!

What I found:

I have been using this book for a month now, and my concentration has increased, and I feel calm, peaceful and focused after a coloring session. Right now I am working on a two page spread of Koi Fish. I have taken it to the beach in the evening. Feelings of wellbeing washed over me like the sound of waves in the background as I let my artistic inclinations run free. Sitting outdoors with my husband chatting casually with each other, I picked up the hardcover, sturdy book, and actually found I heard more of what was said in the conversation and my mind did not wander (aren’t we all guilty of this sometimes?). I have also been using it when I need to unwind or am in go, go, go mode, and it has helped my mind slow down and think more clearly.
