The Dead Sea “Sea-crets”

At 3 million years old, The Dead Sea gets its name from the high mineral content which allows for nothing to live in its waters. Located in Israel, the Dead Sea is the lowest elevation point in the entire world. Most of us had some sort of knowledge about the Dead Sea. Here are some facts though, that you may of not of known about the Dead Sea.dead sea 3.jpg

  1. Did you know that the Dead Sea is the second saltiest sea in the world with a salt content of 33%? (First is Don Juan Pond in Antarctica). Since the salt content is so high, you are able to lay on the surface of the water without even trying to float!dead sea.jpg
  2. The unique salts contain many minerals which can treat a number of skin conditions like acne, psoriasis, hives, cellulite, dandruff, and many others. It has a natural healing qualities, clearing a lot of skin conditions.
  3. The Dead Sea mud is very high in magnesium, Vitamin E, calcium, and potassium; all great minerals for your skin. Many vacationers come seeking remedies for their skin conditions. The Dead Sea is the best free spa there is! Scientists have studied and concluded without a doubt that the Dead Sea mud benefits the skin. The mud has very strong cleansing capacity which is great for skin rejuvenating, cellulite, and skin dryness.
  4. The rim of the Dead Sea filters the sun’s ultraviolet rays. So it is the only place on earth where you can sunbathe for long periods with little or no sunburn because there are no harmful ultraviolet rays. You’re getting only ‘good’ UVB, which doesn’t happen anywhere else on the planet.

  5. Not only is the sea full of minerals, but the air is as well. Because of the low height in relation to the sea level, high atmospheric pressure is created in the Dead Sea which makes the air 6% richer in oxygen than normal. The air is also very rich in minerals such as magnesium and bromine.

Since traveling to The Dead Sea is unfortunately not that easy, we have many products that are available to us such as the Natural Elephant Dead Sea Mud Mask and the Natural Elephant Dead Sea Bath Salts to help with our skin.

What’s the Deal with Paraben?

What is the deal with parabens and why is it more beneficial to use paraben free products? Should we worry? Parabens are chemicals that have been used since the 1950’s to prevent bacteria growth in items. Another huge reason why they are used is because they are inexpensive and effective. Over 85% of cosmetics and many hair products that have parabens in them. So basically they prevent bacteria, are cheap, and popular! So what’s the big deal? Are they really that bad?

In the 1990’s parabens were proven to disrupt hormones in the body. “estrogen disruption” is linked to breast cancer and many reproductive problems. In 2004, a researcher from England even found parabens in many breast cancers. They also came to a realization that in the long run, parabens can accumulate and create many health problems in the long run. So maybe it is better to switch to paraben free products after all?

I guess parabens has its good and bad. The good is that it is the main reason why some of our favorite products stay at a reasonable price. The bad though is that it has been proven to cause a series of serious health problems. So if you want a little more comfort when you use your cosmetic products, stick to the paraben free products! It is a little tough considering that they can be more expensive, but it could be extremely beneficial in the long run!

Want to make the switch and tryout some paraben free products? At Face and Body Shoppe, there are many products that are paraben free such as Jojoba, Amir, and Mineral Fusion. Brands like these can help lead you on the road to good health! Try them out and let us know what you think? Did you find a difference between paraben and paraben free products?

5 Benefits Vitamin A Gives to Skin

Vitamin A is known as a very powerful antioxidant that creates wonders for the skin. Usually when we think of Vitamin A, we think of our daily vitamin and the internal importance of Vitamin A in our body. But did you know that it has amazing powers to give you that amazing, beautiful skin you have been dreaming of? Here are 5 reasons why you should add more Vitamin A for younger and more beautiful skin.

  1. Let’s face it. None of us want to age or look like we are older than 25. Unfortunately, there are no inventions yet that turns back the time, but with an abundance of Vitamin A, you can slow the signs of aging. Vitamin A is an antioxidant that helps bring down the damage of “oxidation caused by free radicals.” Oxidation that is caused by the free radicals is the main cause of..well…skin decay and disease. Woman's portrait  20,60 years old.Adding more Vitamin A to your everyday life such as eating more leafy greens or adding topical products to your skin can actually slow down the aging process.
  2. It can prevent and help treat skin cancer. This magical vitamin is able to control cancerous cells in the body. Retinoic acid, which Vitamin A is rich in, is very important in the cell development and cancer treatment. Researchers found proof that these molecular mechanisms in retinoic acid may control or even stop cancer cells.
  3. It also is a great protectant against skin infections. Vitamin A aids the white blood cell called a lymphocyte. A lymphocyte attacks bad and harmful substances to help the immune system create antibodies, which attack your skin from antibodies. Vitamin A makes sure that your skin stays healthy and protects your organs from infections. Are you getting enough of it? Women should have at least 900 mg and men need 700 mg.

  5. Vitamin A in your diet and on your skin can clear up acne! It is important to the regular shedding of the dead skin cells that have been building up on the inside of the pore which causes acne. Vitamin A prevents all the bad “breakout” buildup that would have clogged a pore. Vitamin A also is an anti-inflammatory and reduces the redness and breakout redness.concept skincare .

Ayurveda – What is it?

kansafaceweb

What is Ayurveda? Ayurveda literally means “life science.” (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge) and is one of the most powerful mind-body health systems. It is the practice of balance within diet, sleep, and nature in order to be the best and healthiest version of yourself.

The two main principles that Ayurveda stands by is that 1) the mind and the body are inseparably connected, and 2) the mind is the greatest power to heal your body.

Sounds a bit different than Nyquil. Wanting to know the steps of Ayurveda? Look no further.

  1. Eating a Healthy Diet

Eating healthy is something we should be doing no matter what right? Well it is the number one principle in following Ayurveda. It says to create a plate full of color in which your food identifies a rainbow. Not only that, you must include the six Ayurvedic tastes of sweet, sour, salty, spicy, bitter, and astringent in every meal. The reason is that when you follow all of this you become more satisfied and don’t feel the need to snack or eat junk.

  1. Getting enough Sleep

This may be one of the hardest for us and we don’t even realize. While we sleep, our body repairs and revives itself. When we don’t sleep enough, our immune system weakens, and even worse, speeds up the aging process. An easy way to know if you are getting enough sleep is if waking up is easy or hard for you in the morning. If you feel energetic when you wake up, then it means you have had enough sleep, if you feel the opposite and tired, you have not had a good sleep.

  1. “Being in tune with Nature”

This phrase simply means that you should have “healthy desires that match what you actually need.” What you need and what you want should mean the opposite. When you are in the proper Ayurvedic balance, you naturally desire which makes you feel satisfied with life and health and simply do not crave any unhealthy desires or wants. When you slip out of balance, you may start indulging in junk food, don’t sleep well or quit exercising, and take part in unhealthy behaviors.

  1. Be in contact with your body’s needs

Making choices that balance your life can be very difficult. But sometimes we don’t listen to our own body which messes up our rhythm. You can tell if your body likes something or not with how comfortable you are feeling versus not. This does not mean that we don’t have to do anything in life we don’t want to do or taking healthy risks. The body will never doubt itself and it will always bring you down the path of truth.

  1. Have a Healthy Digestion

Good balance means good overall health. Good health means that we can completely metabolize what we eat healthily. Digestive energy is also known as agni. When agni is healthy, there is no surprise that we will also have healthy tissues, and eliminate waste properly. On the flip side though, if our agni is damaged, the digestion leads to an overflow of toxins known as ama. When ama builds up in our bodies, it pauses our flow of energy which is the main cause of all diseases.
