Talk to Mamma
Mamma has always been able to detect alcohol in products. Anytime she would buy lotion products for her skin, she would immediately know that there was alcohol in the product. When Mamma would rub the lotion on her skin it would seem to absorb rapidly and then her skin would feel somewhat raw. After a lot of trial and error to find a good product, Mamma realized that the alcohol in the product she had used had actually been creating more of a problem than helping her skin. Alcohol is in many skin care products. Some people have reactions to alcohol and others don't. Alcohol actually acts as a pathway to open the skin and deliver the product to the underlying layers of the skin. In a sense, it abrades the skin. Whenever you abrade the skin you are traumatizing it. You can read more about alcohol in skin care products at www.bubbleandbee.com and www.paulaschoice.com Alcohol has many different applications in products that are helpful, but Mamma doesn't like it on her skin. She likes a more natural way.
Many of us get very concerned about what we should use and how we should look. A lot of advertising is geared this way. Really, we should all be our own best advocate for what works best for our own skin and what is safe for us. Have you had a reaction to alcohol? What products do you like that are alcohol free? Talk to Mamma and let her know!
This morning Mamma was getting ready to mix her protein shake. She noticed on the window ledge in her kitchen that her wheat grass had grown significantly and was ready to harvest. Since she likes to juice her wheatgrass, she decided to add it to her shake to give her an extra energy boost in the morning.
Wheat grass is said to have many health and healing benefits. Many people extol wheat grass as a super food. Mamma likes her wheatgrass fresh juiced using her wheatgrass juicer!
Just remember, not all juicers can juice wheatgrass. You need to get one specifically for wheatgrass and other leafy greens. Mamma likes the Lexan Products GP 27 for juicing. The website www.energiseforlife.com/wordpress/2009/05/22/wheatgrass-health-benefits/
has a lot of really good information about wheatgrass. Do you juice wheatgrass? Or do you buy it frozen or dried? Talk to Mamma and let her know your experience with wheat grass. Mamma wants you to live a healthy and fulfilled life!
Mamma was having her morning coffee and heard on her favorite news show something that the dermatologist community has long known: daily sunscreen use helps significantly delay the signs of aging and reduce the risk of developing skin cancer. This was announced on the heels of a reputable, long term study done in Australia. Skin cancer is the number one form of cancer in the United States.
Natural, mineral based sunscreens have gotten a bad rap in the past, as they tend to be thicker and creamier and leave more of a chalky residue than their chemical laden counter parts. But, if you are reading this blog, then you are probably like Mamma, and you are wanting a healthier, more natural way for you and your family.
Mamma has found several more natural sunscreens that have worked well for her and go on more easily than many other mineral based sunscreens, while providing protection from UVA/UVB rays with the safer forms of sunscreen titanium dioxide and zinc oxide.
Mamma wants you to have fun this summer, but to protect your skin, too, so here are some ideas:
Mamma wants to know what you and your family like to use for your sunscreen care? Have you found a product that works well and goes on easily? Are you still looking? Talk to Mamma and let her know what's on your mind!
Summer fun has begun! Mamma recommends you follow a safe skin care regimen so you can enjoy these sun-filled days and still look and feel fantastic!
Protect your skin from harmful UV rays, hydrate, and replenish. A good skin protectant is needed every day, even on cloudy days. Depending upon your activity, don't forget to reapply if needed. Keep your sun exposure during the hours of 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at a minimum. Increased temperatures and activity require increased hydration. Listen to your body's thirst and drink plenty of water--your skin will thank you!
This is the time of year when Mamma likes to "summerize" her moisturizing and use light weight Aloe Jelly Jiggle as an all-over moisturizer. It doesn't feel heavy or sticky in the summer, yet soothes and softens. Aloe Jelly Jiggle is 95% organic, alcohol free and paraben free.
Soothing aloe is perfect for so many summer issues: apply after sun exposure to cool and soothe skin, aloe jelly can be helpful in relieving the itch of insect bites, and Mamma's Aloe Jelly Jiggle makes a wonderful shaving gel!
Remember, Mamma wants you to have fun this summer, and feel good, too!
