Natural skin tightening facial mask

Have you thought about a peeling facial treatment but the downtime with flaking skin puts you off? Regular use of the Sea me mask will give you similar results over time without the flaking. We’ve added masses of chlorella (an algae) in the recipe which tightens skin, improves production of collagen, stimulates cells to produce at a faster rate and acts as a skin healer (goodbye acne). Apply a thick layer to your face, neck and décolleté, wash of after 20 minutes for instant radiant results. Chlorella also improves overall skin tone and helps to diminish the signs of aging. I always also add Sea me mask to my head for a scalp massage (best hair day ever) A tip is if you wake up with puffy under eyes, apply a thick dollop of Sea me mask as an under eye mask. Gently remove after 20 minutes with a wet cloth. Et voila, reduces puffiness significantly 👍

Apply body lotion for blood circulation

At times it’s easy to neglect our skin below the neck and just give attention to our faces. Especially in winter times when we can cover up. But our skin is the largest organ and deserves love and attention all over. Blood circulation is essential, your heart, is striving for your health by sending tiny, tiny blood cells to every part of your body, helping them to thrive by giving your cells oxygen. Boost your blood circulation by excising, dry brushing and massaging with body lotion. For example with our absolutely delicious organic Body buddy lotion 💚💚💚

Solutions for chronic stress

 

Hello healthy body! Long term continuous chronic stress is a major cause of disease today. My belief is that it doesn’t matter how much kale you eat, or how fit you are, if you have long term chronic stress wreaking havoc in your body, it doesn’t make much difference. Chronic stress and worry wears down our body’s defences and lowers the immune system.

So, what can we do about it? There are 3 easy things we can start with right now.

The effects are immediate.

  1. Your breathing. How are you breathing right now? Shallow breath or maybe even holding your breath without noticing? Practice breathing deeply. When you inhale, your tummy should go big and when you exhale your tummy should go in.
  2. Check your body. Sometimes we sit or walk with our shoulders up by our ears or wear a frown we are not aware of. Relax your body.
  3. What are you thinking about? It may take some discipline but it’s a habit we can develop. Start in the morning with positive affirmations and being grateful for small things. Try to keep this positive bubble longer and longer every day, with some practice, it will become effortless.

All of the above will help trigger the release of endorphins which are the feelgood hormones. It will promote better blood flow, improve immunity, reduce inflammation and many other benefits. Make it a habit to check-in several times a day, breathing, body and brain. So now, go ahead take another deep breath and make your tummy BIG.

Boost your immune system with deep breathing techniques

Did you know that some deep breathing techniques can boost your immune system?
As we are experiencing winter here in the Northern Hemisphere, the virus season, it feels important 
to boost the immune system . 
Eating well, sleeping enough and exercising moderately goes a long way.
But we can take it even further with deep breathing exercises .
I watched the @goop series and came across the Wim Hof method (check out on YouTube ).
Wim Hof is a Dutch guy also known as The Iceman. He is an extreme athlete known for his ability to withstand freezing temperatures.
He is apparently never sick and has even been injected with toxins which his body neutralised. 
The Wim Hof method is a combination of breathing exercises, body exercises and cold baths or showers.
I’ve been trying it out for a few days now. At the end of my shower in the morning, I turn the water to ice cold for two minutes.
They say, that you won’t like it in the beginning but that you will start loving the cold showers.
Of course I’ve heard the health benefits of people doing the ice plunge and polar bear swimming clubs apparently you feel fantastic and refreshed afterwards . At this time I think I’m going to stick to my 2 minute cold shower and dearly hoping to fall in love with it soon. Brrr…
My question is, who is going to join me in this challenge?
