The juicing trend has been growing for quite a while, but is it really worth the hype? I'm going to give it a yes. Check out the reasoning, as well as some super cool juicing recipes from Bailey, our guest blogger from Green-ish.com.
In Brazil's Amazon rainforest, Andiroba (pronounced: an-jee-ROH-ba) trees are an important part of the local culture and economy. Learn more about the powerful skin-renewal properties from the Amazon's most sustainable tree.
Known to natives as food of the gods, Cupuaçu (pronounced ku-pu-ah-SU) may not be as well known in the U.S. as Açaí, but we believe its moment in the spotlight is coming up fast for this highly sustainable, antioxidant and moisture powerhouse for your skin and hair.
The sun, beach and pool help give your skin a wonderful glow, however for lasting and healthy results, it's necessary to invest in a healthy, balanced and colorful diet! Foods rich in beta-carotene - a precursor of Vitamin A, help with the production of melanin, responsible for skin pigmentation and help keep a healthy color. And of course, don't forget your sunscreen.
Açaí (pronounced ah-sigh-ee) is one of those intriguing ingredients that everyone seems to love these days. You hear about celebrities and health experts using it, and you might even see it added to food and drinks at your local grocery store.
This refreshing juice is rich in antioxidants and has great anti-inflammatory properties. The high concentration of vitamin C makes this awesome juice a great contributor to glowing summer skin!
Buriti - Pronounced boo-ree-CHEE—is a rich, smooth oil that I've loved for years. It is sustainably harvested from a palm tree that grows all over the tropical forests of my homeland of Brazil – generally in wetter areas near rivers and streams. We Brazilians know the Buriti palm as the "Tree of Life," and with good reason.
This excellent Açaí summer breakfast recipe has amazing antioxidant power, healthy omegas and anti-inflammatory properties, helps with weight loss and athletic performance. Enjoy!
Learn more from our guest blogger Dr. Q (Woman Entrepreneur and CEO of Shtrands) on Buriti's awesome chemical composition and why it is so great for hair.
