1. Coffee and tea

  • We all know this – coffee and tea stains teeth
  • Contains tannins which leads to the staining and discoloration
  • Coffee is also acidic, and when the pH of your mouth is lower, your teeth are at higher risk for damage
  • Adding a splash of milk makes them less damaging to our teeth!

1. Eggs

  • If you’ve heard of biotin supplements for hair growth, eggs have a good amount of natural biotin!
  • Biotin is essential for production of keratin – the hair protein!
  • Protein is another ingredient important for hair health and eggs provide a lot per gram
  • Eggs also contain nutrients that your hair needs such as zinc and selenium

Is your hair falling out? Is it driving you crazy even just to shower? With all the ups and downs of life, it’s hard to manage a proper diet and keep stress free. Hair loss has three major causes: thyroid issues, anemia, or stress. If you can rule out the health issues, focusing on stress can help reduce hair loss. A stressful life can be hard to manage, and it can be especially hard to get all the vitamins and minerals you need. Adding supplements can make a world of difference and can reverse hair loss and help regrow hair. Look for these ingredients when choosing your supplements!

1. Collagen

As trendy as collagen seems, it works. Adding collagen as a supplement is important because you are getting nutrients you usually wouldn’t get unless you’re actively eating chicken, beef, or fish bones. Collagen has been revered as the fountain of youth for most Asian countries, who prize chicken feet as the answer to supple skin and flowing hair.

Ever heard the saying that you are what you eat? As much as you can invest in skin care products and facials, there are certain foods to eat and certain foods to avoid while on the quest for perfect skin. Your skin works as a reflection of your overall health, as it is directly tied to your stomach bacteria. Your skin is your body’s biggest organ, and is extremely responsive to shifts in diet. Having a healthy gut and digestive system reflects directly to clear skin! I have experimented with different diets, and I’m certain to say this list reflects not only scientific evidence, but tried and true experience.

1. Celery Juice

Celery juice is the ultimate detox drink. The celery has anti-inflammatory properties and resets the stomach’s hydrochloric acid. Celery juice has the ability to starve viruses, bacteria, and mold in the body. Starving these ailments can lead to a healthier gut, reduced cravings, and overall glowing skin.

We recommend 16 ounces of celery juice on an empty stomach everyday for 30 days for results to be realized.

Depending on your skin type, you can find key active ingredients that will change your skin for the better.
