Flora-Bast-feature-try
clear and calm skin. It’s easy thanks to Flora + Bast. They are “founded on the belief that skincare and beauty is a lifestyle decision, and that natural products designed, preserved and delivered properly outperform any synthetic product.” Why all the hype about cannabis? Cannabinoids balance over and under production of oil. Cannabinoids regulate apoptosis (programmed cell death) to ensure that skin cells die if and when they are not functioning optimally, allowing new cells to take their place. At night I’ve been using their Age Adapting Facial Serum and Age Adapting Sleep Tincture. The serum balances your endocannabinoid system. So your skin can repair itself naturally. It is rich in phytocannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and fatty acids. The formula is free of water, preservatives, and fillers. The Sleep Tincture works by regulating sleep-wake cycles.  When taken before bed, you should fall asleep faster with greater ease, stay asleep longer, and wake up more refreshed. I have noticed these benefits myself. You know you already love Cannabis, now let it into your skincare routine…

restfulsleep
well I’m not, but Restful Sleep from Healthy Directions will. It is an all natural supplement to calm your mind, promote a full nights rest, nourish chi to bring harmony to the body, and wake up refreshed. The creator of this supplement is Dr Yan Ping Xu, a certified practitioner of Oriental medicine and board certified herbalist. He believes the spleen is the key to a healthy sleep. “in traditional Chinese Medicine, it’s believed that when you’re having trouble sleeping, it’s your spleen’s chi that is off balance. The ancient herbal blend that the Chinese have been relying on for thousands of years to remedy sleep problems by rebalancing chi is called Yi-Fang. Restful Sleep’s formula uses the same exact Chinese herbs in Yi-Fang that have been used for over 2,000 years! And to make sure the herbs are pure and top quality, Dr. Xu personally selects each herb on her yearly trips to China, then makes sure each herb is processed, purified, and sterilized to remove any toxins—all done right here in the U.S.A.” She’s also included ancient herbs to rebalance your spleen chi, and modern-day nutrients to help prepare your body to accept the herbs. This includes calcium, magnesium, and potassium. My readers get 20% off with code SAVEREST (exp12/31/15). So try Restful Sleep, and have sweet dreams….

Skinny & Co.-Extra-Virgin-Skinny-Coconut-Oil-X2igAFR9but your coconut oil should be. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard that coconut oil is a health and beauty miracle. I use Skinny Coconut oil because it is 100% pure, extra virgin, and 100% raw.
