Turmeric is one of those magical skincare and wellness ingredients. It’s a simple root from the Curcuma Ionga plant and has so many uses and benefits! It’s been used in traditional Chinese and Indian healing practices for centuries due to it’s amazing anti-inflammatory effects.

Use it as a toothpaste to naturally whiten your teeth and support gum health. Use it in a yogurt and honey mask to soften and brighten your skin. Drink it with a little cream and black pepper to encourage health and reduce inflammation! *Be sure to get pure turmeric and not the dyed stuff that comes cheap! Check the source and use the good stuff – it’s well worth it and won’t stain your skin! Unsure? You can also buy turmeric root and shave and use it like you would use ginger!

Jen’s Turmeric Mask:

1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder

1 tsp Raw Organic Honey

1 tbsp Full Fat Plain Yogurt

1 drop Young Living Lemon EO

Combine all ingredients. Stir & apply to clean, damp skin 10 mins. Rinse. This mask can be used for any skin condition and is very healing!

 

Acupressure Self Massage

I am a firm believer in facial massage. You have a great opportunity twice daily to do a little lymphatic or acupressure self massage. This is help create better circulation of blood and lymph, reduce congestion and puffiness and keep skin looking amazing! So, while cleansing or applying your serums morning and night – take a couple extra minutes to massage the product and reap the many benefits!

 

Here’s an easy and fast acupressure massage routine to get you started:

Physical Wellness is Connected to Emotional Welless

Our minds govern our physical bodies. We become what we thing, focus on and suppress. I love how this simple chart shows just some of the many ways our emotions are manifested physically in our bodies. This is one of the main reasons I do so much massage and practice mindfulness in my treatments.

Enjoy! Now, go meditate and get a massage!!

This terrific article does such a great job of explaining the basics of how inflammation causes distress on the system. The author also points out the major causes of inflammation and how to avoid triggers using diet change and stress management. I’ve been saying this for years – inflammation is the root of all imbalance and any skin disturbance. Glad to see this getting more press and love the simplistic language and explanations in this article. read, enjoy and pass along the info to someone you love!

 

 

It’s ALL About the Lymph, baby!

This doctor’s video lecture does such a great job of simply explaining how the lymphatic system works and what it’s importance is for wellness. The healthier the lymphatic system is, the healthier your skin will be and the more radiant you will feel. I add a little manual lymph drainage into almost every single facial for my clients because I truly believe this is vital for skin health and total wellness. I look forward to more intensive MLD training this fall as well, so that I can provide even more benefit for my clients!
