Health & Fitness

By Christina Hull

If you’re tempted to use April showers as an excuse to skip your workout, these healthy items just might make you think twice.

Hint Essence Water

An alternative to plain, tasteless water, Hint Essence Water will give you the hydration you need, plus a kick of yummy flavor. Lightly infused with natural flavors, Hint is free of sugar, sweeteners, preservatives, and more importantly, calories. Hint Essence Waters are available in eight delicious and delightfully unusual flavors: Pomegranate-Tangerine, Peppermint, Pear, Raspberry-Lime, Lime, Tropical Punch, Apple and Cucumber. For more information, check out http://www.drinkhint.com.

Wai Lana EnviroMat

From famed yoga instructor Wai Lana comes an environmentally friendly yoga mat that will make you feel really good about exercising. Made from 100% biodegradable and recyclable materials, the EnviroMat is not only good for the Earth, it’s also good for your health! The product is latex- and PVC-free, and devoid of other harmful components like phthalate, toluene or heavy metals. It’s also designed for superb traction and support for the ultimate yoga workout. For more information, go to http://www.wailana.com.

By 142 Moisture ABSORB

By 142 is the very first line of luxury medical and pharmaceutical products created to address actual skin problems we all face. Think sweaty palms when you’re trying to get a tight grip on your tennis racket or your golf club. Instead of a bottle of baby powder, you can now turn to By 142’s Moisture ABSORB. A sweat-absorbing antibacterial cream, it contains Polypore 200, an ingredient that sops up 110 times its weight. For more information, go to http://www.by142.com.

Guilt Free Snacking

If you’re looking for a healthy afternoon snack to satisfy that pesky sweet tooth, put down the candy bar and pick up a package of Crispy Fruit. This unique, freeze dried snack (available in Apple, Peach, Pineapple and Apricot) has zero fat, cholesterol, additives or preservatives. Best of all, each is equivalent to one perfect portion – though with 40 calories or less per package, you can afford to indulge in more than one. We recommend Apple and Peach! For more information or to purchase Crispy Fruit, visit http://www.crispygreen.com.
