1. Last Monday I told you about all the amazing benefits of chamomile tea. If you missed it here’s what I wrote:
It’s no secret that chamomile tea is relaxing and can be a sleep aid. But it has many other health benefits you might not know. You see, chamomile is high in antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor properties. It can improve circulation, vision and mood while strengthening bones. If you are not a tea drinker, or you don’t like chamomile, you can always add it to your smoothie.
Well there are more benefits I wanted to share with you about this pretty little flower. Because it has anti-inflammatory properties when used topically it can calm the skin and heal acne, psoriasis and eczema. And the antioxidants also protect the skin from free radicals – which ages skin.
2. Regularly consuming 2-3 cups of ginger tea daily can slow down skin aging (maybe that’s the beauty secret to Asian skin ?).
3. If your bathroom habits are stopping you from getting a good night’s sleep, try cutting your salt intake by 20%. You see, researchers found that a simple diet change made a big difference in the frequency at which their subjects urinated. Dropping from 2.3 times a night to 1.4 times.
4. Dry shampoo has really regained popularity in the last couple of years. But user beware! It can clog your pores and smother hair follicles. Once a hair follicle dies, the hair falls out and that follicle can no longer produce a hair. So if you are a fan of dry shampoos, use sparingly.
Have a great week!
For a healthier you!
