Hello and welcome to my blog. As the title state i am going to discuss why i jog or run.

imag2081-e1521905491597.jpg

After a 6 miles jog. I did some floor exercise before i left as well.

When i started my clear skin care journey, the book (Clear Skin Diet) i read spoke of the pH level within, circulation of blood and it importance to your wellbeing and overall health. It also pointed out it importance and contribution to your overall health.

Take good care of you from the inside. You will have a lot or enough energy to complete a lot of things you need to do during thw week.

What i picked out from the book was that, your skin thrives on blood circulating and coming towards the skin on the inside. This is why diluted essential oil such as rosemary which encourage blood circulation to the surface of the skin when applied, helps with hyperpigmentation. So it is important that you do an exercise which encourages blood circulation.

You can start small and increase the distance as time goes on.

With this said, you can see that to get new blood pumping means your heart will be beating and i believe more regular. Your body and mind rest on your heart beating regularly as it pumps new blood to the other parts of the body ensuring the pH within is also balance. If your heart is not pumping new blood, your are filled with old blood which maybe toxic, causing you to fall ill regularly.

You can do some floor exercise if running is not for you.

Anything opposite this is likely to contribute to acne formation and feeling sluggish in addition to illness.

I saw a lot of improvement in my skin and general health. I slept easily and really well. I will encourage you to take up some form of exercise if you want to improve your health in addition to eating well.

Until next time, happy workout.

Hello and welcome to my blog. As always and without fail i try to make my smoothie each week. This is yet another all of 5 a day vitamin packed smoothie with vibrant colour fruits. This weeks smoothie ingredients are as follows:

Blueberries

Strawberries

Pineapple

Apple

Conference pear

Cinnamon

Coconut water

I have not taken the time to look at the ingredient on the coconut water carton well but i chosen it because other fruit juices tend to have too much sugar in them.

Hello and welcome to my blog. I am not sure if i mentioned this in my previous blog posts but i used to do a 10 miles per week jog. I documented this but never shared it as i did not want to disclose my location. However i have found a way to do it safely. This weekend i wanted to go jogging but it started drizzling so i did a bit of cardio outside then came inside to do some more and film. Although a couple of years ago i was able to jog in harsh weather conditions, i feel i need to slowly work my way to previous standards or benchmark.

Let’s have a tea party

Healthy Drinks, Healthy Tea, Uncategorized, Vegetable Juicing

Hello and welcome to my blog. This post is about herbal powders and dried berries. I only started food swaps about 4 or 5 years ago when i bought the book The clear skin diet. My skin had been acne prone the longest time ever which had a toll on my confidence.

The Clear Skin Diet Book

I finally said enough is enough and came across the book The Clear Skin Diet. Adopting some of the recipes and changing my lifestyle helped alot. I have an indepth post awaiting posting so i will share that very soon.

I recently bought a few things from realfoodsource which i want to share with you. I bought their organic green blend which is a mixture of matcha, wheatgrass, chlorella, spirulina and green tea. I also bought the Organic Maca powder and Organic goji berries.

The green blend from realfoodsource

The goji berries act as my snack, they are very chewy and sweet so i rarely have other cravings at work. I also have the green blend tea whenever i am at work after my breakfast. I recently made a spinach, broccoli and blueberry smoothie with coconut water and added some of the Maca. The taste was alright. I have also added some to my oats which was not too bad. Previously i have drunk the following teas: goji berry, Pu-erh and green tea. I purchased them from a Chinese herbal shop in East Ham, London.

 

I was never into normal tea so i was glad to have come across other hebal teas upon an advise in The Clear Skin Diet book. I have read a lot of good things about Matcha which influenced my desire to buy the green blend and give it a try.

Delicious Cucumber juice. This is not that sweet but the taste is acceptable. Kids may not like this so much.

Other drinks i have incorporated in my diet and love are carrot and cucumber juice. I recently went back to juicing but the juicer broke so i am stuck with a lot of carrot i have to try and eat. Drinking these two vegetable juice helped cleared up my skin too. When i run out of tea i drink hot water with lemon alone and at times with honey; using a straw because of the acidity of the lemon and my teeth. I do this in the early hours of some mornings at the moment.

Delicious Homemade Carrot Juice. This juice is sweet and kids will love it.

I hope this has been helpful. Let me know which herbal teas you are currently drinking and any vegetable juice you have done or are currntly drinking.

Until next time, happy tea partyand happy juicing

Welcome to my blog

Natural Hair Makeup

Hello and welcome to my blog. I am a twenty something year old from the UK. I have a lot of quality content to share with you all.

I have been growing my natural hair since 2010 and have ample information about natural hair. I tend to use a lot of natural product and would like to call myself a “mixtress” and a “facialist” who is very happy being in her own lab. 😁 I also tend to use natural ingredients from the kitchen to combat acne and hyperpigmentation.

I am also experimenting with makeup and will be reviewing beauty products i have purchased online and in store. (Yes i like to play with colours). I am not a makeup artist but try my best to beat my face well to that standard.

Until next time, its bye from me
