Happy July everyone! I hope you all had a happy, healthy and safe holiday this past weekend!
It’s hard to believe we are already through the first half of the year and into the hottest time of the year. Here in Arizona, we have already reached 118 degrees! It’s hot!
And with the heat comes time spent outdoors in the pool or at the beach, if you are lucky enough to live near water! Summer also brings treats, like ice cream, grilled meats and sugary drinks. The excess acids in these foods can lower your immune resistance and make your skin prone to inflammation. With all of this acid overload, people are more likely to get acne, sunburns, and eczema. To avoid acidic build up in your body, balance your PH and keep your skin looking fabulous, eat a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and nuts. Drink a ton of water and stay away from processed foods.
And, if you will be spending a lot of time in the sun, be sure to load up on anti-oxidants such as vitamin A, C and E.
Keep your skin healthy with this sugar scrub that has anti-microbial properties, is exfoliating, moisturizing, and cleansing! Use it a couple of times a week or as needed!
