Beauty Brite Disclosure

With going Back to School in full swing, and the inevitable flu and cold germs lingering, I have been frantically searching the web for ways to improve my children’s immune system. With two children starting Kindergarten, amid a pandemic no less, it hasn’t been an easy feat but I have found a few products that have given me some peace of mind.

Workout, Replenish, Repeat!

Beauty Brite Disclosure

It is safe to say that I am the queen of yo-yo dieting & failing to stick to a workout routine. I have tried all the fad diets and weight loss pills with minimal success and no real long lasting results. Now that 40 is right around the corner, and I dont have the greatest health, I needed to take myself seriously and start holding myself accountable.

The last 6 months I have changed much of what I eat and increased my physical activity. I began to keep it very simple with wholesome foods and used simple equipment to help make working out enjoyable. 42 pounds later (YAY!) I am ready to find my strength with weight training, and I couldn’t be more excited.

Curing Cystic Acne During Stressful Times

Beauty Brite Disclosure

These are definitely strange and stressful times we’re living in right now. In our state, COVID-19 has everyone quarantined in their homes. Unemployment is high, grocery stores are pretty cleared out, and everyone is feeling stressed. My job let us know that we’d be off of work indefinitely until it was safe for the school district to resume. My husband’s employer did the same. In addition, less than three weeks prior, I lost my father. Basically, with all the combined stress, my skin started to explode in painful cystic acne.

At the store, my usual cleanser was gone and impossible to find online. I was desperate for a solution! Signature Clear had really good reviews, so I was excited to give it a try.

I have to admit, the idea of rubbing a product with oil all over my cystic acne made me very hesitant. But, I decided to be brave and trust the process. I highly recommend trying the Acne Clearing Bundle. It’s everything you need, and it gave me a chance to try each of the products. For me, the Acne Clearing Bundle worked harmoniously to clear my breakouts.

First, I started with the Magic Melter by taking a pea sized amount and warming it up in the palm of my hands. Then, I rubbed the Magic Melter over my face, avoiding eyes. Lastly, take the dampened muslin cloth and wipe off the Magic Melter from the skin. You may also repeat this process. I love this stuff because it really “melts” away the makeup, oil, and impurities from my skin. My skin looks and feels very clean!

Next, I recommend following up with Magic Oil. Apply a few drops to your hand, rub together in palms, and apply to your face. Concentrate especially on the areas with heavy breakouts. This hydrating oil helps clear acne and strengthens your skin against bacteria. Magic Oil removes makeup, cleanses skin, moisturizes, and doubles as a makeup primer!

The oils in Signature Clear products are ranked very low on the comedogenic scales, which prevents them from causing breakouts. The oils bring balance and nourishment to oily skin. Signature Clear is made from natural ingredients such as hemp, manuka, and black currant oils. There are never any fragrances, fillers, or preservatives.

Signature Clear is a nourishing and natural approach to cystic acne. Even with life’s stressful moments, I like having a natural solution that not only heals my cystic acne, but it hydrates and improves my skin’s texture.

The Best New Products For Women’s Health

The Best New Products For Women's Health
Beauty Brite Disclosure

It’s a brand new year and a chance to feel better than ever before! Because well-being and fitness are important to me, I love discovering new products that support women’s health.

I wear lots of hats as a wife, mom, daughter, and working mom. Most days leave me feeling drained and exhausted. It’s important that I have products in my life that help me look and feel my very best. 

I’m excited to share with some of my recent finds! Whether you’re a college student, stay-at-home mom, beloved Nana or a corporate mama, there’s something for every woman at every age.

For most of my life, I’ve struggled with the exact opposite of gorgeous hair. Naturally, I have very fine hair without much volume. After my son was born, I actually ended up losing a lot of hair! After that, I knew I needed to find a supplement that could help improve my hair.

I was really excited to check out Vegamour Love Struck Biotin Gummies. I love the super cute heart shape, and the summer strawberry flavor is tasty! Vegamour Love Struck Biotin Gummies are vegan, gluten-free, gelatin-free, and contain zero artificial flavors. 

Vegamour Love Struck Biotin Gummies are comprised of a special blend of vitamins and minerals that promote healthy hair, starting from the scalp and encouraging hair growth. Made of a power-packed blend of biotin, folic acid, B-5,6,12, Vitamin A,C, and E. These were incredibly gentle on my stomach and I could even take them on an empty stomach!

Low carb diets are very popular right now. Whether it’s Keto, South Beach, Paleo – many people are switching to a low carb way of life and reaping the benefits. My husband and I follow the Keto diet which can sometimes leave us feeling fatigued, especially when our electrolytes are out of whack. Ultima Replenisher has become a daily essential for me!

I can’t stress enough how well this product works! After a workout or a hot day, this is the perfect “pick me up,” as it replenishes electrolytes lost. Ultima Replenisher is vegan, gluten-free, GMO-free, caffeine free, peanut/soy free, and sweetened with organic stevia. Simply add the packet to your bottled water, shake, and enjoy. I highly recommend the Cherry Pomegranate flavor, so delicious!

Rosebud Woman is a family-owned business that puts great care into the products they create. Every feminine health item they make is plant-based and gentle for skin. I also love that when I purchase from Rosebud Woman, a portion of their proceeds are donated to vetted non-profits who are supporting women and their families. 

I highly recommend Honor Regenerating Balm! It’s a great balm for women of any age, very gentle and nourishing for the most intimate skin. Honor Regenerating Balm improves skin resilience and accelerates skin repair. This has helped me greatly since becoming a mom. Applying Honor Regenerating Balm before baby helps reduce the risk of tearing during delivery. For current moms, it will promote faster healing after giving birth. For menopausal women, this will help greatly with frequent dryness. I recommend using this nightly to revitalize intimate skin, or it can also be used 10 minutes before a sensual encounter. 

Many of us need a little help getting our “groove” back after we’ve had children or reached a certain age. Arouse Stimulating Serum has definitely become one of my go-to products. If you’ve been feeling a lack of sensation, it will help enhance any sensual encounter. Using a natural stimulant, Spilanthes Acmella, it will deliver a gentle tingle to the most intimate areas. This luxurious serum stimulates, lubricates, plumps and tingles! 

These days, I’ve got plenty of aches and pains. I’d been searching for a natural source of pain relief instead of constantly reaching for the bottle of aspirin. I’ve heard wonderful feedback from friends that tried CBD products for pain relief. I loved getting to check out Muscle MX CBD Balm, it worked fantastic for me! Muscle MX CBD Balm is THC-free and made in the USA with all-natural ingredients.

Muscle MX CBD Balm Activate works at the start of your day, apply first thing when you wake up. Muscle MX CBD Balm Activate will help prevent any pain later in the day. I love to use this on the back of my calves and lower back.

Muscle MX CBD Balm Recovery is the perfect remedy for sore muscles. My husband swears by this stuff after a long day at work! It’s icy cool and feels so soothing anywhere I’m feeling tension or pain.

For additional muscle relief, the Rykr Roll is a unique handheld massager that gently applies accupressure to muscles. I love using Rykr Roll on my feet, calves, arms, back, and temples! Self massage is an effective method of pain relief that doesn’t involve costly pills or prescriptions with dangerous side effects.

Rykr Roll works on muscles to increase oxygen flow and improve blood circulation. In addition to relief for sore muscles, Rykr Roll also works to relieve symptoms of arthritis and fibromyalgia.

I hope you’ve enjoyed these new and exciting women’s health products! Let’s make 2020 the year that we feel our best! What products have you been enjoying this year? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments!

Boost Your Child’s Health With Chewable Burstlets

As a mom, I am always looking for vitamins and supplements for my son to take. However, we have one major obstacle.

As you can imagine, it’s been difficult to find products that he will take! It’s time to boost your child’s health with chewable burstlets!

Hemp Oil Vs CBD Oil

Hemp Oil vs CBD Oil… what is the difference?

There is a lot of people out there that have no idea there is a big difference. Like myself! The past couple years the “green rush” of cannabis products have been flooding the market.  A question I hear a lot is…Can you get high from the CBD or Hemp Oil?

No- you can’t get high from hemp or CBD hemp oil or CBD products.

There are two different cannabis plants one is non-psychoactive hemp and the other is psychoactive marijuana. I want to share with you what I’ve been using on myself and my family.

Moms- 4 Ways To Treat Yourself Better

I ask myself this a lot…what about ME? Moms are always giving to others, but you need to give back to yourself too. No one is going to take care of you, so here are some ideas/products to treat yourself better!

Drink Your Water

All my life I have heard…did you drink your water? No I’m not too fond of water, yes I get it I need it. But do I like it, NO! I try to drink plain water, but it just isn’t my thing. So since I need to be that example, I need water that has flavor. Being healthier is the number one way on how you can treat yourself better. Plus I can get my veggies and vitamins in too!

Unboxing:

Yep…flavored water but I’m also going to take it a step farther- water that gives me my daily dose of green nutrition plus tastes fantastic. I’m talking about AMAZING GRASS. They have tablets you put in water. By the way, Green Effervescent tablets are PERFECT for the mom on the go. You can get flavors that help with energy, hydrate, detox, and even beauty tablets.  

4 Ways Moms Can Treat Themselves!

 If you want to go all out and get on the drink water kick with me, then you need the Eff Your Water Kit which is terrific. You will get one branded glass water bottle with sleeve, five effervescent tubes including Lemon Lime, Energy Tropical, Hydrate Strawberry Lemonade, Detox Lemon Charcoal, & Beauty Pink Lemonade, plus fun collateral and one pack of Eff Your Water stickers!

All you have to do is drop an effervescent tablet into your drink, making it the most novel and convenient way to get a daily dose of green nutrition. The tablets are made with the brand’s proprietary alkalizing greens blend, including wheatgrass, barley grass, alfalfa, spirulina, and chlorella, plus more than 30 antioxidant superfoods to help support immunity.

They offer a variety of functions:

  • Detox is great for those that are interested in detoxification, especially after a fun weekend. It includes 7+ cleansing superfoods to support the elimination of toxins. 
  • Beauty can help you reach that glow you’ve been striving for with biotin, collagen, and reviving botanicals. 
  • Energy comes in handy for those that need a boost once the 2 pm slump comes around! One tablet contains 85 mg plant-based caffeine from green tea extract. 
  • Hydrate is comprised of electrolytes. It’s especially convenient for the people (mostly everyone) that forgets to drink half a gallon of water a day, especially with these hot summer days.

I love the fact I can have different flavors and it helps me get my water intake in plus my greens, antioxidants, and vitamins. Mama is getting her healthy on with all these healthy water tablets.

Take Care Of Your Skin

I’m in my 50’s and skincare is a big thing for me! It really doesn’t matter what age you are, taking care of your skin is definitely a way to give back to yourself. Every morning I take time to do a beauty routine that gets me in the mood for the day.

First, make sure the products you use don’t have a bunch of junk in them- you know they make your face greasy and then you break out- stop using those products. You want all-natural products that will have you looking clean, healthy and of course looking amazing.

My favorite brand is SOMA AYURVEDIC because it works!

But also it has all-natural- ingredients that come from the most biodiverse forests. It is plant-based and vegan which enhance and maintain natural collagen levels to keep skin elastic. My face is so smooth after I use SOMA AYURVEDIC! A skincare routine is a great way to treat yourself better.

I’ve been using the vitamin C serum, anti-aging cream, and under-eye gel for a couple of weeks now and OMG my face is looking so healthy. I don’t look like I haven’t slept in months and my face has a glow to it now. Even my husband who barley comments on how I look even noticed how healthy my face looks. Let’s just say I’ve been taking a lot more selfies, lately.

Create An Oasis

My Backyard Oasis

Home is where the heart is right…well it also is where everyone wants Mom to do everything for them so I created an area where I can go relax. I created a Summer Oasis for myself out in the backyard. What a wonderful way to give back to yourself- create your own space. Now it’s nothing like a SHE SHED but it is my space that I enjoy every day. When I need time away from the chaos of life and family I head to the backyard.

I’ve been wanting to do this for years by the way. But guess what never took the time to do it- not this year and I had help from Decocrated.

The Deoccrated Summer Box gave me the inspiration I needed to get my oasis started. Plus it was really fun getting a box full of decor items that are colorful, functional, and perfect for the summer. The summer box has a hostess with the mostess vibe going on and I love it. Colors are amazing and I’m digging the tropical theme- who doesn’t like Flamingos.

4 Ways Moms Can Treat Themselves!

The art print can be framed and reused in the home. It also has two sides so you can utilize both prints and change up the decor.

The apron and napkins can be used year-round since they are my favorite colors. Omg…you need to check out Pinterest for fun things to do with a cloth napkin. My husband thinks the apron is for him but no way it is way too pretty for him to wear it while BBQ’ing but I sure will rock it at my many summer parties.

4 Ways Moms Can Treat Themselves!

The box art can be displayed inside too. Create a relaxing oasis on your bookcase too. I love to feature it on our wall outside for now. Which also features the wood plaque. The plaque has two sides and this plaque definitely will be hung inside by my desk after summer.

4 Ways Moms Can Treat Themselves!

The HELLO hook will be hanging by the front door soon- but for now, it’s outside holding the cute TIC TAC TOE travel game.

My daughter and I play this game almost every night outside. By the way, you can also throw this game in your beach bag for a day trip. Tic Tac Toe is a fun game to play, no matter what age.

The vessel can hold all kinds of items outside and inside- think bills and stationary. Outside it holds the napkins, utensils, and seasonings. I can use this vessel for so many things in the house.

4 Ways Moms Can Treat Themselves!

The lantern is my favorite item in the box because I’ve always wanted one. It is outside now and holds candles. When I bring it inside I might use it for a plant that has an ugly vase.

Thank you Decocrated, pronounced (DECO-CRATED), a new quarterly (seasonal) home décor subscription box for my inspiration for creating an outside summer oasis for me to unwind and relax. The box has over $200 worth of items that you can use all year round and is priced under $80. Love this deal.

Eat Cookies!

We all need cookies in our life, right? How about a cookie that is healthy? What the heck is a healthy cookie- well CompletEats is a plant-based grab-and-go cookie that is gluten-free, vegan, 7 grams of protein, full of Omega-3s and fiber. See healthy.

4 Ways Moms Can Treat Themselves!

They have three flavors: Cherry Almond, Mocha Chip, and Chocolate Chia. And each cookie has 6-7 ingredients and all are sourced in California. Since I live in California I knew I had to try these cookies. Healthy cookies are also a cool way to treat yourself better!

Each cookie has 7 grams of protein, full of Omega-3s, and fiber. CompletEats cookies are perfect for before and after your workouts and will keep you full and energized throughout the day.  Now that is a cookie- that is recommended with exercise.

See it’s not all healthy stuff but fun stuff to treat yourself!

MOM’S you need to treat yourself better and I hope you think about some of these products or ideas to create a happier and healthier you!
