The Benefits of Drinking of Water.

Something so simple, but hard for people do on a daily basis? drink water. Now that spring is slowly approaching and the sun will be getting hotter, it is BENEFICIAL to drink water and stay hydrated all the time. But creating the habit of keeping water in your diet can also have some perks throughout every season of the year!

SKIN: looking for that natural glow? continuing to use the same chemicals to try to clear your skin? Drinking water habitually will NATURALLY treat your skin by detoxing and moisturizing cells in your body.

LIPS: always wondered why you have to apply those extra coats of lip moisturizer? just like your skin, drinking water will moisturize the cells in your lips, decreasing the amount of outside moisture to keep moisture locked in.

METABOLISM: slow metabolism? drinking water can regulate a sufficient metabolism and digestive tract!

EATING HABITS: Drinking water before a meal can actually reduce the amount of food you eat. Trying to eat smaller portions throughout the day? Water is your friend.

BECOMING HEALTHY: Overall, restoring your body with the nutrients and liquids it needs to function properly is always beneficial. Trading in a soda for a glass a water each day can be the fewer changes you need to complete the journey of living a healthier. Besides, who wouldn’t want to live healthy?

The average water intake is 7-8 glasses a day. To reduce spending money on the Earth’s biggest resource, invest in a water bottle, and fill it up every time you run out of water!

Water is beneficial to one’s life. Stop playing with yours and take a sip, you’ll live longer!

Going Natural…With Lip products.

The recent “National Hair movement” has sparked a wave of people to seek other ways to live a natural life. When i was asked about the lip products that i regularly used, a conversation with a person who has “natural lips” interest me to start researching the idea of natural lips..

For those who use the most popular lip protectant, Blistex, can be quite intrigued with the information that I’ve found out. Blistex has a chemical ingredient that soaks up the natural moisture in your lips, making them become more dry and having the consumer (YOU)  apply more Blistex and buy more of their products. I can admit that Blistex was my guilty pleasure and it might be yours but there’s other options to keep your lip moisturized. I promise.

ImageThe late and great natural product, BEESWAX, is a great way to protect your lips and keep them moisturized and healthy. Beeswax also has great UV protection from the sun and has a GREAT smell that is appropriate to apply to your lips. Unlike Blistex, you begin to apply less beeswax because its restoring the moisture in your lips, meaning you spend less $$$!

Other organic products are available like the EOS egg that recently came on the market (and which i personally use) to begin my natural lip journey. Like any other transitioning method, it takes time and great patience to continue using these organic products to start seeing change. And its actually A LOT easier to just run back to the product that you have been always using. BUT HOLD ON, AND KEEP STRONG! I promise it has its benefits 🙂
