Beauty Best Bets: Earth to Skin and Chyavanprash

Staying healthy is especially important during these tough times and with the winter season coming up. Depending on your current situation you may be constantly washing your hands or perhaps have increased your tea and immunity intake. Here are three fabulous products that help keep you safe and feeling good.

Earth to Skin
Moisturize and firm your hands and body with Earth to Skin’s Black Tea + Rosehip Oil Hand + Body Balm. Made with hyaluronic acid, known for promoting more healthier supple skin, and rosehip oil, this enriching blend helps tight and hydrate the skin as soon as it is applied. What is also great about this moisturizer is that it is not greasy and the skincare line is cruelty free and formulated without harmful ingredients like parabens, petroleum, sulfates and gluten. The best part is the product is affordable. So, you can treat yourself without breaking the bank!

Another fantastic product the skincare line caries and this is something we all use regularly, is hand sanitizer! Earth to Skin Hand Sanitizer comes in a variety of delectable scents and kills 99.99% of germs. Again, you can feel good about this product because it is produced with no sulfates, parabens, it is vegan, and there is no animal testing. Each bottle is two ounces so they are perfect to carry around in your car, purse, or the odd drawer at home. The bottle is even packaged nice so you don’t feel like you are putting on hand sanitizer, but rather a luxurious lotion. Find these fantastic products at Walmart stores and

If you have heard about Ayruveda, one of the world’s oldest holistic healing systems, you may have heard of Chyavanprash. A dark, rich, herbal jam that has been around for thousands of years. The jam is best known for strengthening and maintaining a healthy immune system.

I was able to try for the first time Chyavanprash, created by Banyan Botanicals. Founded by Scott Cote and Kevin Casey in Albuquerque, New Mexico the company began in 1996 and has been thriving ever since. The recipe of the jam is made in a base of amalaka fruit which is a natural source of antioxidants and in turn nourishes and strengthens the body providing energy and vitality.

What is great about Chyavanprash is depending on how you like the taste, you can take it a couple of ways. Some people find it delicious and just eat a spoon of it, like you might do with peanut butter. Or depending on your palate and what you normally like, you can spread it on your favorite piece of toast, or mix it in a cup of warm water or tea. According to Bayan the recommended dose is 1-2 teaspoons in the morning and evening.

Bayan Botanicals Chyavanprash provides deep rejuvenation to all the seven body’s dhatus (tissues) and all the three doshas (energies that define every person’s makeup). The jam contributes to a wide range of benefits and is practically for most people. Chyavanprash is commonly used to support: the immune system, lungs, reproductive tissues, rejuvenation, digestion, metabolism, and healthy skin.
