Here are some new-and-improved everyday items that will render your trip healthier and more beautiful, whether you’re traveling across the globe or the city. Toss them in your luggage, gym bag, or purse and enjoy.
We love Erin’s Faces for make-up and skincare because it’s a brand with integrity: ingredients are cruelty free and thoughtfully chosen to be both healthy and effective, with no petrochemicals. For Spring ’18, try Erin’s Faces 8 mineral lip glosses, which are named after NYC neighborhoods + infused with delightful surprises such as essence of peppermint and vanilla and shimmer (not glitter). Some have no fragrance, while others offer kissable essence, and they’re not overly-sticky. Flattering colors range from sheer to a beautiful browny mauve – and all of the pinks, reds, salmons and beiges in-between. Check them out at http://www.erinsfaces.com and let us know which are your favorites.
Crystal Invisible Solid Deodorants offer protection without the harsh chemicals and are incredible. They’re invisible, solid, moisturizing, and are Made Safe-certified. Do they work? Absolutely. They’re available in three different scents from essential oils and Unscented: Vanilla & Jasmine, Lavender & White Tea, Chamomile & Green Tea. They battle odor for 24 hours and are endorsed by breast cancer and oncology treatment centers across the country. Read more at http://www.thecrystal.com and find them at your favorite drugstore.
If you want to counteract the effects of cramped footwear and pointy-toed heels and achieve a perfect yoga-toe spread, then align, strengthen and restore toes with Correct Toes. Correct Toes are clear and almost invisible, and can be slipped on a foot or feet to solve foot problems without medication, surgery or orthotics. You can sleep in them, you can wear them under socks, and you can decide how long you wish to keep them on – whether it’s all night while sleeping, or for twenty minutes while watching Netflix. Use them for bunions, runner’s knee, hammertoes, flat feet, and a host of other foot problems. Read more at http://www.correcttoes.com.
If you’ve ever been mystified by your own eating habits or those of a loved one, pack the book “Thin Is a State of Mind: The No Stress Weight Loss Guide” by Nancy L. Bryan because it’s not your typical weight loss book. Quoting Emerson and drawing from her insightful personal experiences of binge-eating and trying out various diets, she helps guide readers through pitfalls and misperceptions to find sane, successful strategies for maintaining a healthy weight. And add the book “Growing Younger Every Day” by Dr. Laurie Steelsmith and Alex Steelsmith if you want to de-code your hormones and how they contribute to youthfulness, weight loss, and optimal health – as well for finding solutions to typical hormone-related health problems.
Happy and Healthy Trails this Spring!
