Purity for The Skin

Hello! Recently I have had a try of a few different products for skin care (body not face) and stumbled across these wonders. “Frank” is a naturally made body scrub of coffee grounds, brown sugar, essential oils, orange extract and other beautiful ingredients that you rub all over your body and literally have the worlds softest skin as a result. It’s beautiful. 250 grams of the magic is only $12.00 and available online only. Just google “frank coffee scrub”.

Another item I tested was pure coconut oil. I tend to get really dry skin from being in the chlorinated pools so much so this is a nice treat to my skin. I found it just at my regular supermarket in the Asian foods isle. A big jar like this was $6.00 but I’ve just now seen it online for cheaper through organic sellers. So have a shop around. Rub it all over your body in the shower and go about your usual routine letting the water run over it for a few minutes. Get a pH neutral wash and rinse off to get the residue oil off your body. It will leave your skin beautifully soft. I’m very impressed. I tried it in my hair, but it was just a tad too hard to get out.

Enjoy bloggers!

Facts About Exercise.

Did you know…

– Exercise improves your immune system- that is, helps your body fight off potential illness.

– Eating fruit before exercise reduces the chance of you losing weight as a result of the exercise. Your body uses the fructose instead of body fat as fuel for energy during your workout. People who do not want to lose weight, but want to exercise regularly should consider having a piece of fruit 30 minutes before your workout.

– Exercise reduces the effects of stress, depression and anxiety by assisting the body in releasing happy hormones to improve your mood! (IBS sufferers, this is ideal for you. Did you know the main trigger of IBS is stress? Even if you don’t think you are stressed it could be the cause of all your pains and discomfort. Add some more exercise into your routine to cheer your body up!)

– Eating properly pre-workout, post-workout and pre-race can improve your performance, for a good read, click here: http://www.womensfitnessmagazine.com.au/fitness/exercises/2013/9/eat-for-exercise/

The Giggles of Health Food

So, today I decided to be a bit adventurous in the health food isle at my local supermarket. I came across 2 new things I thought I’d give a go: 1. Dairy-Free White Chocolate – Don’t try this haha. It was awful, I’m not sure what I expected but I use to love white chocolate before I became dairy intolerant. This will never replace the real stuff!

2. Tamari Roasted Almonds – If you find these, definitely try them, they are delicious.If your Australian they are at Woolies in the vegetables section in a little container (check my Instagram to see a photo).

So I scored a 50% success rate in finding something nice today, there are some duds out there. But if your lucky you can find some really delicious products that are healthy alternatives to the real thing and that may actually taste better.

Anyone have any recommendations for nice things to try? I absolutely love food, and like to take my time to browse items in the supermarkets!
