Plants are powerful allies for creating a life of vibrant health and joyful well-being.

Medicinal plants can help you heal inflammation, quiet your mind, and remove toxins. They can rebalance your emotions, release your addictions, and give you sustained energy.

They can also protect you from the negative effects of modern life, from electromagnetic field radiation to chronic daily stressors to the toxic buildup in food.

You may already be fascinated by the healing power of herbs or by systems of natural medicine like Ayurveda and Chinese wisdom.

If you want to make a real and lasting change for your skin, opt for natural alternatives such as these magical herbal agents.
  • Chamomile. Chamomile is one of nature’s miracles. …
  • Witch Hazel. …
  • Aloe Vera. …
  • Calendula. …
  • Lavender.

Often we go about it the wrong way and apply harmful chemical laden synthetic beauty products that end up causing more harm than good.

I’m Fabulous Cosmetics integrates plants and botanicals into their skin care products.

Most plantbased skincare products are always of natural origin, including fragrances and colorants. Derived from an array of high functioning botanical extracts, our products infuse your skin with nutrients that are rich in plantbased vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients.

For example Aloe Vera has been known not just for its positive effects on skin but also for treating many health ailments. It has long been considered a miracle plant because of its numerous curative and healing benefits to the body.

The gel extract from the Aloe Vera leaf contains Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C and E, Folic Acid and Niacin. Minerals found in the Aloe Vera plant extract are copper, iron, sodium, calcium, zinc, potassium, chromium, magnesium and manganese, which is a lot of nutrients for just one plant.

Glass skin, which is the fancy name for clear, luminous, seemingly transparent skin, is taking over social media — and one person’s skin-care routine for achieving the look is going viral. Makeup is great but if you apply makeup without taking care of your skin what is the point! Right? Better to have an amazing skin and use little makeup. Because anyone can archive a flawless complexion or glass skin if they take care of their skin.

Each year on February 14th, many people exchange cards, candy, gifts or flowers with their special “valentine.”. The day of romance we call Valentine’s Day is named for a Christian martyr and dates back to the 5th century, but has origins in the Roman holiday Lupercalia.

Valentine’s Day is celebrated on February 14. It is a festival of romantic love and many people give cards, letters, flowers or presents to their spouse or partner.

Are you taking a fabulous Cruise?

When booking a Valentine’s cruise there are several factors that will ensure you and your sweetheart have a romantic time.

The choice of destination is paramount. Tahiti, Bali or the Seychelles automatically conjure up romance, but they’re a long way away and priced accordingly, so our advice is to set your sights more modestly. Mid-February is not a good time for romantic sunsets on northern seas, so if you and your true love are sun worshippers a fly/cruise is a perfect option. However, if your paramour is content in your company whether it rains or shines there’s a host of options that won’t turn out to be passion-killers.

The Maqui berry grows wild on small evergreen trees throughout the Patagonia region of southern Chile. It is purported to have a lot of amazing health and nutritional benefits.

Here are some of the reported benefits of the Maqui berry:

The Maqui berry contains high levels of polyphenols, anthocyanins, quercetin, flavonoids, along with omega fatty acids, iron, calcium, vitamin C and potassium making it a very highly nutritious, high antioxidant fruit that can help to improve the immune system. Antioxidants are substances that may protect your cells against the effects of free radicals. Free radicals are molecules that are formed when your body breaks down food and is responsible for aging and tissue damage. Thus by reducing the number of free radicals in the body, it is believed that this will lower the risk of cancer, heart disease, and memory loss. The high antioxidant activity of the Maqui berry may also help to prevent the oxidation of the bad LDL cholesterol in the blood, thus reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases such as heart attacks, atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and stroke.

The high levels of anthocyanins in the Maqui berry also exhibit powerful anti-inflammatory properties that may help to reduce the amount of inflammation in bones and joints and reduce the onset of degenerative inflammation diseases. The Maqui berry’s anthocyanins contain a very high amount of delphinidins. Delphinidins is what gives the Maqui berry it’s rich deep purple color.

Delphinidins acts as a potent anti-inflammatory and has antiangiogenic properties. Antiangiogenic properties is used to stop the growth of tumors and the progression of cancers by limiting the formation of new blood vessels. Studies are being conducted to see whether delphinidins may be effective in inhibiting the growth of prostate and colon cancer cells.

Consuming the Maqui berry may cause a significant increase in the release of insulin in the body, which in turn helps to lower the circulating amount of glucose in the bloodstream and prevent the formation of new fat cells.

To show that the Maqui berry may be the new superfood, ponder this fact: the Acai berries contain ten times more antioxidant vitamins than grapes and twice as many as blueberries. The Maqui berry is reported to have an antioxidant level 4 to 30 times higher than the average Acai berry.

The Maqui berries currently contain the highest antioxidant value of any known superfruit.

COFFEE BENEFITS ON THE SKIN:

  • Skin Exfoliation. Coffee grounds work great as a face scrub because their texture helps exfoliate the skin and remove dead skin cells. …
  • Skin Softening. …
  • Cellulite Reduction. …
  • Treating Dark Circles and Puffy Eyes. …
  • Anti-Oxidation. …
  • Skin Tightening. …
  • Skin Brightening. …
  • Anti-Inflammation.

Caffeine also has several properties that are good for your skin, doing everything from diminishing under-eye circles, reducing inflammation and redness, and doing away with cellulite. If you want to reap the benefits of coffee for skin, add it to your skin care routine and find out how your complexion improves.

ANTI-INFLAMMATION

Caffeine has anti-inflammatory properties that make it a great way to get rid of any redness and swelling on your face and skin. It works so well that a study has even shown that its performance is already comparable to that of aspirin when it comes to minimizing puffiness, at least on rats. Another experiment that involved testing the effectiveness of coffee as an added ingredient to anti-inflammatory creams yielded significant positive results, proving once again the benefits of coffee on the skin.

SKIN SOFTENING

Easier and cheaper than a salon facial treatment is a coffee-cocoa face pack, which can quickly be made even in the comforts of your home. Simply mix two spoons each of cocoa powder and ground coffee, then add to three spoons of milk and a spoonful of honey. If your skin is oily, you may want to use yogurt instead of milk. This mixture can then be applied directly on your face. After about 30 minutes or so, you can wash off the face pack with clean water. The benefits of this face pack include softer, healthier, and hydrated skin. It can also tighten your pores.

CELLULITE REDUCTION

Another one of the great benefits of coffee on the skin is reducing cellulite. This is so because the caffeine in coffee dehydrates your fatty cells, causing the cellulite to appear diminished and making your skin look much smoother. In fact, studies have shown that skin creams which listed caffeine as an ingredient are up to 17% more effective when it comes to cellulite reduction. To make your own body scrub, just mix together coffee, pure aloe vera gel, and vitamin E oil in a 2:1:1 ratio, then apply the mixture and massage onto your skin. Make sure that the coffee you use is finely ground to achieve the best results.

TREATING DARK CIRCLES AND PUFFY EYES

Yet another advantage of coffee is its ability to reduce the appearance of puffiness and dark under-eye circles. Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, caffeine can minimize the accumulation of blood under your eyes, therefore preventing dark circles. It is so effective that almost every product marketed as a way to erase dark circles has a certain amount of caffeine in its formula. However, take note that dark circles and under-eye puffiness can be caused by a number of factors, including dehydration, sleep deprivation, and allergies. Although it can remedy excessive blood flow, caffeine cannot remove dark circles that are caused by hereditary factors.

SKIN EXFOLIATION

Coffee grounds work great as a face scrub because their texture helps exfoliate the skin and remove dead skin cells. The benefits include a smoother and cleaner face, and as an added benefit, the coffee also helps prevent dryness on your face. To use, simply make a scrub out of half a cup each of brown sugar and ground coffee, along with a quarter cup of olive oil. Mix well until it turns into a fine paste and applies it directly to your face, massaging in circular motions. When you’re done, rinse thoroughly and apply moisturizer for best results.

ANTI-OXIDATION

Coffee is very rich in antioxidants and surprisingly has a far higher content than even fruits and vegetables. This makes it a great remedy for skin damage caused by UV rays from exposure to the sun. Research has proven that applying coffee on the skin provides a layer of protection from harmful radiation. It does this by inhibiting a certain protein enzyme, thereby reducing the risk of getting skin cancer. Moreover, coffee’s diuretic properties make it great for treating a condition called Rosaceae, relieving the discomfort caused by redness and irritation due to sun damage.

SKIN TIGHTENING

Adding to the long list of benefits of coffee on the skin is its properties that allow for skin tightening. Caffeine is great for minimizing the appearance of fine lines around the face, and can also diminish puffiness in certain areas of the face. It is not a surprise that once again, coffee is added as an ingredient to many anti-aging beauty products that aim to tighten skin and reduce fine lines. Most importantly, caffeine has been shown to hinder the development of cancer cells in the body.

SKIN BRIGHTENING

The key to having beautiful skin is to have healthy skin, and the best way to achieve this is to make sure that you are protected from viruses, fungi, and bacteria that can harm your face and affect your skin. To give yourself a radiant glow, mix coffee grounds and Epson salt in warm filter water and use this to wash your face. Afterward, use the same coffee grounds to massage and exfoliate your face, rinsing again with the same coffee water.

ANTI-INFLAMMATION

Caffeine has anti-inflammatory properties that make it a great way to get rid of any redness and swelling on your face and skin. It works so well that a study has even shown that its performance is already comparable to that of aspirin when it comes to minimizing puffiness, at least on rats. Another experiment that involved testing the effectiveness of coffee as an added ingredient to anti-inflammatory creams yielded significant positive results, proving once again the benefits of coffee on skin.
