Alchemy Organic Super Blends Sport Elixir And Energise Smoothie Recipe

Prepping my body for exercise and replenishing it just after is something I have only recently started to fully appreciate.

Going to the gym, attending fitness classes, running outside or whatever it is we do to stay fit is all well and good (and it is good!), but we won’t benefit completely unless we look after our bodies at other times too.

Inlight Organic Firm & Tone Oil and Organic Body Oil with Arnica – Summer Body Prep

I choose skincare to meet a particular concern. For example, if my complexion is looking uneven, I’ll buy a formula that treats pigmentation. If it’s feeling dry, I’ll choose something that’s super hydrating.

When it comes to bodycare, I do things differently. Here it’s the ingredients that come first. I adore rose. Yes, it’s very hydrating (so that serves a purpose) but I just love the fragrance. It’s definitely my fondness for scents that prompts me to buy body products. The condition of my skin seems to play second fiddle, and it probably shouldn’t with Summer just around the corner!

Sirco Fruit Juices – Getting to the Heart of Things

I suffer from a condition called Raynaud’s. When it strikes (randomly it seems) the ends of my fingers turn white, become numb and feel cold. My hands take on this very weird two-tone appearance. I also get regular migraines.

The two are linked, in as much as they are both to do with poor circulation. They occur when blood vessels collapse, stopping the blood from flowing through them smoothly. I am on prescribed medication for my migraines as they are pretty nasty.

I’ve read a fair amount on both conditions over the years, so have become fairly knowledgeable. But one thing I didn’t know until very recently is that there’s a fruit juice available that promotes healthy blood flow. It’s called Sirco - and it’s widely available in supermarkets.

Key Skin Supplements and What They Do

I first started taking food supplements when I was trying to get pregnant. I wanted my body to be in tip top condition, with the optimum level of nutrients to support a growing baby.

How helpful my Pregnacare capsules were in this process is impossible to measure. But I felt sure enough to continue with supplements post birth, moving on to ones for my skin, hair and nails. 

Over the past few years, as I’ve become better educated about my skin and as I noticed it starting to age, I have added more specific supplements to the mix such as hyaluronic acid and collagen –  substances produced naturally by our bodies but which decline with age.

Here is a quick look at key skin supplements and what they do:
