How to Naturally Protect yourself from Corona Virus

According to the Center for Disease Control, there is currently no vaccine to prevent corona virus; however the best way to prevent yourself from catching this virus is to avoid exposure and to practice preemptive actions to prevent the spread of germs, viruses and bacteria. Below is a list of natural ways to protect yourself from Corona Virus.

1- Be vigilant in public places.

To stop any pandemic, the trick is to avoid exposure. When you are in public, be vigilant of using public items like water fountains, handrails and door knobs.

2- Wash your hands.

Proper hygiene is essential to the prevention of germs, virus and pathogens. It is important to wash your hands after touching any public surfaces and before you eat.

3- Don’t touch your face, eyes, mouth with unclean hands.

Germs can stay on your fingertips and hands hours after being exposed to certain viruses and pathogens. This is why it is important to avoid rubbing your eyes, nose and face without washing your hands first.

4- Use natural remedies.

Diffusing essential oils such as lemon and eucalyptus can actually sanitize the air and provide a natural, clean scent instead of using toxic chemical aerosol sprays. You can also utilize things such as Himalayan salt lamps to naturally detoxify the air in your home.

5- Don’t share personal items.

It is important to keep your personal items to yourself and not to share items such as hairbrushes, make-up items, and toiletries. It is also helpful if you remove your shoes before entering your house and not to wear clothes you’ve worn in dirty public places in your home.

Summer Skin Care Secrets

Summer Skin Care Secrets

Summer is a time for fun in the sun and enjoying warm temperatures outside! But summer activities such as exposure to excess sunlight and chemicals in pool water can damage your skin.

Below is a list of skin care secrets to help you keep beautiful looking skin no matter what the season!

Be Smart with Sun Exposure-

We all love to soak up the sun, but excessive sun exposure raises the risk of melanoma, a type of skin cancer. It is important to apply sunscreen and utilize shading devices such as hats, sun-visors and umbrellas when you will be in direct sunlight for long periods of time. The sun’s rays are the hottest during midday, so you might consider planning your outdoor activities for the late afternoon or evening.

 

Wear Summer Appropriate Clothing-

Certain fabrics such as flannel and polyester are not heat friendly and should be avoided during the summer time. When your body becomes overheated, you sweat and these fabrics do not allow your skin to “breathe.” This can cause a build up of bacteria on the skin and lead to break outs.  During summer, fabrics such as cotton should be worn. Cotton is a light, breathable fabric choice that will not harbor heat like polyester and flannel fabrics do.

Use Summer Specific Make-Up-

Certain cosmetic items do not withstand summer stressors and can end up making you look like a melted wax figure. It is important to choose makeup products that not only withstand things such as sweat and water exposure, but also offer healthy benefits to your skin. There are many options such as natural mineral powders that will give you flawless coverage while also nurturing your skin. You can also wear foundation that contains sunscreen for added protection against the sun’s harmful UV rays.

Establish a Daily Purifying Routine

Sunscreen, makeup and sweat can build up in your skin’s pores and cause you to break out and look older. It is important to establish a daily routine to cleanse your skin. Products such as our natural, organic exfoliating scrubs and cleansing charcoal facial mask are premium options that will help you keep your skin fresh and clean. For optimal, clear skin, always wash your face before bed and never go to sleep without washing off makeup or sunscreen.

Stay Hydrated-

Your skin contains 64% water, so without proper hydration, it will not look it’s best.  It is recommended that adults drink at least 8 glasses of water daily. Drinking appropriate amounts of water while you enjoy the summer heat will not only make your skin look better, but will also prevent harmful things such as heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Take a thermos or bottle of water with you as you enjoy summer activities and remember to stay hydrated!

Pick the Right Sunscreen-

Choose a sunscreen product with an SPF of at least 15 or higher. It is also important to choose a sunscreen with as little chemicals in it as possible. There are options for making your own DIY, natural sunscreen as well. Remember to apply sunscreen thoroughly to all sun exposed areas. Areas such as the ears, nose, face, arms and back typically are the most exposed, so be sure you are covering these areas with appropriate amounts of sunscreen. Re-apply as needed after water exposure and sweating.

 

Remembering these tips will help you achieve the great summer skin. Don’t forget to take care of your skin this summer!
