All mists hydrate skin, tone skin, set makeup, act as a serum to nourish skin throughout the day, or even cool skin down.
Mists help your moods If scented :
Certain scents can be effective against depression, anxiety, insomnia or exhaustion. Just make sure to read the ingredients list carefully. Some essential oils, such as cinnamon, can cause irritation or breakouts.
Mists help you look good :
Mists, can temporarily give you a dewy glow if your skin is feeling dried, and help set or refresh your makeup.
When your skin is dehydrated, its protective barrier gets weaker, which means collagen and elastin can break down faster, and also heat can cause oilier skin which can clog your pores setting you up for pimples.
What should we look for in a Mist:
If looking to add some extra moisture to your skin with a mist, look for one with hyaluronic acid. To calm irritated skin and ease redness look for Rose water and Aloe.
We hear from friends and coworkers that fasting is their choice of regulating their weight during this time of the year.
Does it really work or is it healthy it all depends on how fasting is done!!
When we consume Carbs, sugar and refined grains, they quickly break down into sugar, which our cells use for energy. If we are not active we store it in our fat cells as fat. But sugar can only enter our cells with insulin, a hormone made in the pancreas. Insulin brings sugar into the fat cells and keeps it there. If we don’t eat between meals our insulin level goes down and fat cells release sugar stored so we can move around and be active.
When we fast our insulin levels go down far enough and for long enough that we burn off our fat.
Studies show when we stop eating during the day is a key on losing weight. Eating between 7am to 3 pm, or 10am to 6 pm, and avoiding any snacking between meals is the smart way to regulate our weight .
