moringa mornings

For busy mornings, shared mirrors & skin that’s in need of a little lovin’… If you start the day with exercise, a swim, a surf, road-running or wake-up with dry skin, our moringa all-beauty crème will give your skin the pep it needs. This moisturising cream is versatile and designed to care for all skins, men included. Men’s skin can tend to be thicker and in need of a real boost of vitamins and hydration. We’re glad it’s 2019 and men can take care of their skin, spend a little money on products that make them look and feel good, and also – prevent damage from sun exposure, pollution and the weather. Switching to natural skin products can alleviate many common skin complaints, including dryness, redness and breakouts. And we all know that limiting our consumption of chemicals – both internally and externally – is a good thing.

feminine energy

Monica Yates is an ICF certified Life Coach and Period Coach. She is your go-to girl when it comes to anything period related. She shares with us the importance of honouring our feminine part and how to do so. “The modern world is predominantly masculine dominated and as a result, women have become much more masculine in the workplace, bedroom and at home. Now I’m not saying that this is a bad thing, but if a man is trying to be masculine and a woman is also always in her masculine, there isn’t the opportunity for polarity which is vital in a sexual relationship. I did an Instagram story about this last week and got a few messages of hate saying that I was alluding that women couldn’t be CEO’s and had to be sheep. Ummmmm….that was NOT what I was saying at all. In fact the opposite. I want my business to take off into a massive corporation and to be running the show! What I was instead saying, is that imagine if in the workplace, …

urban detox

Two of the biggest stressors for our skin are the sun, and pollution. We can wear hats and apply SPF for sun protection – protecting against pollution is more complicated. The urban areas we live & work in are usually polluted. Smog from cars, congestion, lack of green spaces all contribute to an environment that is not always skin-friendly. Invisible particles in the air can clog pores, affect skin health and contribute to lines developing. You know when you haven’t binged on junk food or alcohol, you’ve exercised nearly every day and still – you wake up on a Sunday morning with redness or a breakout? Sometimes, pollution is the villain… We can’t do much about the pollution that gets on our skin as we wait for the bus, catch the subway or take a stroll to the neighbourhood park, we can do a lot about getting it off. This is our best defence… remove remove remove!

coffee and period pain

Jennifer Ward is a leading Naturopath trained in herbal medicine, nutritional medicine and health coaching. She created her own blog ‘She Glows’ to help educate women about the inner workings of their bodies. In this article, she writes about the relation between coffee and period pain. “Having your period is a pretty cool thing (seriously!). It reminds us of our femininity, child bearing abilities and shifts us back a notch to marvel at the wonders of the human body. For some having a period is a dream, however if you are reading this is it likely it’s a less rainbows and lolly pops and more like there is something trying to claw their way out of your uterus. Yes, it can be that bad. With each cycle you may be experiencing cramping, period pain and that can’t-get-out-of-bed-to-face-the-world exhaustion. With an energy dip a natural go to solution is to grab an almond latte or iced long black, right? Because let’s face it, coffee = getting through the day.
