      Your Health, Natural Illness Prevention and Immune Support

      The FROWNIES mantra, and the foundation for all our ingredients, products, and company standards, is based upon holistic health principles. Which also means natural, organically grown (plant based) ingredients. We believe a strong immune system is the best defense mechanism to fight against infection and illness. Do not fall prey to vicious illness; instead empower yourself to HAVE control, because you do! You have all the power you need to remain healthy by keeping your immune system strong! It is vital to have a strong immune system to sustain health. 

      Strengthen and support yourself and your family by acknowledging the autonomy within. Feeling empowered to learn will build autonomy within you and within those around you (especially the littlest ones around you, let's be honest, they are watching EVERYTHING). To protect you and your precious little ones sometimes demands taking preventative measures. This is what natural health practices are all about. 

      Healthy Immune System 

      The immune system can become weak from nutritional deficiencies as well as lack of physical exercise. Too much stress can also impair immune functions and compromise immunity. This increases both risk and severity of infection. An inch of prevention is worth a mile of cure. 

      The Immune system is made up of a network of cells and organs. The foods you eat have a huge impact on your immune system. So feeding your body foods that are dense in nutrients and contain disease-fighting properties helps to keep your immune system staying strong.

      Here are some super foods full of vitamins and minerals that can help you kick sickness to the curb and have control of your whole health, naturally!

      Natural Home Remedies

      Turmeric –A powerful anti-inflammatory and has properties that allow to generate more immune cells. 

      Garlic –Contains sulphuric compounds that protect against illness. 

      Oregano –High in antioxidants and saturated with phenolic acids and flavonoids.

      Ginger –Minimizes heartburn, motion sickness, migraines, and prevents colon and ovarian cancers. Ginger also gives your immune system an extra boost.

      Broccoli –Rich in vitamins and minerals; one of the most effective immune boosters. Contains the anti-cancer and potent antioxidant compounds, vitamins A, C, and E, 

      Red Bell Peppers –Increases your energy level and strengthens your immune system. Great source of vitamin C; of all the fruits and vegetables, red bell peppers are one of the best sources of vitamin C.

      Green Tea –Strengthens the immune system and fights bacteria and viruses. Contains epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which prevents a virus from being replicated, and multiplying; a cancer-fighting agent.

      Pumpkin –Rich in beta-carotene, the main component of vitamin A. Vitamin A prevents cancer and strengthens cellular communication in the immune system. Pumpkin seeds are also a great source of protein and zinc. 

      Sickness Prevention Tips

      1. Wash hands frequently. This is an easy way to protect against illness every day.

      2. Get a full night of restful sleep. This is when the body restores and healths itself the most.

      3. Eat a healthy diet of organic fruits and vegetable. This will give antioxidants that help remove harmful free radicals from the body.

      4. Exercise regularly to stimulate the immune system.

      5. Avoid sugar, which depresses the immune system.

      6. De-stress. Stress affects the body’s ability to fight off infections and throws hormones out of balance.

      7. Take vitamin D3. 

      8. Take immune boosting supplements (vitamin C, probiotics, zinc, garlic, Echinacea) that will help boost the immune system.

      9. Make sure hormones are in balance. Hypothyroidism and hormonal imbalance can lead to a weak immune system.

      10. Drink lots of water to help stay hydrated. This helps remove toxins from your body.

      11. Be sure to use non-toxic beauty products such as FROWNIES since 1889

      It is important to be proactive and take charge of your health so that you can prevent and fight off infections, such as the flu and viruses, both naturally and safely.  Prevention is how you have control of your health, naturally!

      Protect your hands!

      Frownies hand was and hand sanatizer

      As you touch people, surfaces and objects throughout the day, you accumulate germs on your hands. You can infect yourself with these germs by touching your eyes, nose or mouth, or spread them to others. Although it's impossible to keep your hands germ-free, washing your hands frequently can help limit the transfer of bacteria, viruses and other microbes. Are you washing your hands correctly?

      We are supposed to sing our ABCs while washing our hands and that is supposed to be enough! It's generally best to wash your hands with soap and water. Over-the-counter antibacterial soaps are no more effective at killing germs than is regular soap.

      Frequent hand washing in warm or hot water with soaps or hand sanitizers that contain known chemicals can cause your hands to become dry and cracked. Too much hand sanitizer is not the answer. You can use the hand sanitazer when not at home or when good quality moisturizing hand soaps are not available. Daily  hand washing is the best way to reduce disease. With a conditioning hand wash and sanitizer your hand may be washed several times a day without drying or cracking. 

      This is a perfect storm for the COVID-19 Coronavirus and instead of protecting ourselves from viruses and diseases, cracked skin invites it!

      According to a 2013 FDA study, chemical-based anti-bacterial hand soaps have never been proven to be any more effective than washing with natural hand soap.

      Use Frownies Lush Lime Hand Wash as a clean soothing hand sanitizer  to provide first line protection against; Influenza, Candida, Staphyloccus, Pseudomonas, and COVID-19 as reported by the CDC. 

      Wash your hands frequently with hand soap that moisturizes your hands and does no damage. Frownies Lush Lime Hand Wash with vitamins, AHA, minerals,  Aloe and moisturizing lipids will help you clean and protect.  Your families daily hand hygiene. Protection has always been or deepest concerns.   

      The Most Powerful "Super-food" CHIA

       

      Frownies Family want to share with your how to be  healthy and beautiful with simple changes that give big results. Just like our skin care products and wrinkle treatments. 

      Being so small and unknown, they may not seem like much on the surface. But chia seeds (Salvia hispanica) are one of the most nutritionally-dense “superfoods” on the planet.If you’ve s never tried them, this may soon change for the benefit of your health and the health of your skin. Frownies family is committed to helping you understand beauty starts on the inside. 

      Chia seeds represent a complete form of nutrition that doesn’t go rancid or spoil, a perfect survival food or daily nutrient boost. 

      Modern science suggest that chia seeds just might be one of the most underrated foods for living a healthier life.

      What is Chia's greatest benefit?

      Omega-3 is great for your skin, hair, nails, heart and a host of other body parts and systems. Research it; I won't go on about it, except to say,a single ounce of chia seeds contains 4,915 milligrams (mg) of omega-3s, as well as a healthy portion of dietary fiber, protein, calcium, copper, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc.  All health and skin healthy nutrients. I want to spark your interest enough that you do your own research and get the facts. 

      How to incorporate Chia into your diet?

      The easiest way to consume chia seeds is to simply eat them whole as a mix of both speckled black and white varieties. Since they’re essentially flavorless, bearing only a  mild nuttiness, you can add chia seeds to almost anything – oatmeal, salads, stew, soup, you name it.

      Another option is to add chia seeds to your favorite smoothie or mix them in juice. The ancient Aztecs  made chia seed juice by mixing chia seeds with lemon and water (and maybe a little bit of sweetener such as green stevia) to make “Iskiate.”

      Herbs to improve wellness frownies boost the immune system

      We at Frownies want to be sure you understand natural health and don' jump to conclusions that are not correct.  I’ve seen  posts online with what may be misleading and incorrect information about using herbs for viruses, namely the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2).

      People often think that herbs are used just like pharmaceuticals. They are not.

      For over 40 years our President at Frownies has been dedicated to  safely and correctly using herbs in her life. It often requires looking at the big picture in terms of lifestyle and how we look at health.

      When we hear the term antiviral, it’s easy to jump to the conclusion that they work just like pharmaceutical antibiotic drugs. In other words, if you have an infection, then you take something to kill the pathogens.

      But herbal antivirals don’t work that way. In fact, they simply can’t work like pharmaceuticals.

      Many herbs can modulate or strengthen the immune system. When taken before an illness (or sometimes at the start of an illness) these immune-modulating herbs may shorten the duration of an illness or stop it entirely. the best action is not getting sick in the first place. That’s why herbalists love to spend a lot of time promoting herbs that build and nourish the immune system, like astragalus, blue green algae and medicinal mushrooms. Most herbalists’ experiences show that nourishing the immune system can help to stave off illness.Especially for people who are overworked or stressed on a regular basis, it is important to keep your immune system strong. 

      Drink lots of filtered water and eat fresh and vitamin C rich foods every day before after and during any illness or just as a health supportive lifestyle; this is action no one debates. 

      Stay away from toxic chemicals in your personal care products, and cleaning products. 

      Get outside daily for the fresh air and sunshine (if there is any)! 

      Move your body, exercise with the many online groups out there.  Find a person that you enjoy and follow them as they work out. 

      Walking is a great full body exercise.

      Epsom salt baths are wonderful if you over worked out or just boost magnesium in the muscles. 

      Use herbal teas, golden milk, lemon water and green drinks to support your body daily. Antioxidants topically like in skin care and internally like in fruits, vegetables, ginger and turmeric are excellent options daily. 

      Meditate and be still know that no one knows everything but you are doing what you can. 

      Right now wash your hands and wash thoroughly.  Frownies newest Citrus Honey Body Wash can be used as a good hand wash that keeps the hands soft, promotes healing and killing viruses.  

      Cleanliness is everything, it is what we do everyday now and it is a new understanding of life style. We called people clean freaks when they cleaned as we need to be doing at this time and for the future. We should all become clean freaks as soon as today. 

      Using Essential oils in your environment as cleaning and air cleaning products is a measure that should be investigated. Essential oils can help clean the air.  On sight water filtration air cleaners, essential oils are the new normal for healthy living. 

       

      Facial Gels and Masks for Non-Invasive Wrinkle Treatment

       

      Looking for an Anti-wrinkle treatment for puffy bags under the eyes? We’ve got it! Frownies Eye Gels contain powerful antioxidants that help protect your skin. With just one 15-30-minute treatment 100% of women testing Frownies Eye Gels saw a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and dark circles 

      Frownies biometric membrane carrier patch used in our Eye Gels, Full Face Mask and Neck Mask, stores powerful nourishing and moistening extracts. The transdermal system, allows for deep penetration of the skin, to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and tone the under eye area. 

      As your skin ages, it may look dull and become susceptible to irritation, redness and fine lines. Ingredients in the Transdermal patches are designed to support aging skin with an additional treatment like given at a spa. With aging, your skin may also get rough and dry and less absorbent of ingredients– but using glycerin regularly can make your skin smooth by filling in tiny cracks and prevent other problems associated with dryness. Humectants in glycerin attract water from the environment and keep water in your skin. Glycerin minimizes water loss due to evaporation and maintains skin’s water balance on an intercellular level– so keeps skin well hydrated and nourished. Alone glycerin is sticky but in the mask it can help super hydrate.

      Because of its skin nourishing properties glycerins regular use will help keep your skin healthy, soft and fresh. It is especially great to use in the winter time to help combat winter dryness. Glycerin supports the formulation of the masks and is a key ingredient. 

      Strictly speaking, using succulents in skin treatments is not a new thing—indigenous people have been utilizing succulent plants for centuries. Chances are you’ve been told to apply Aloe on a sunburn at least once in your life. Aloe is the number one skin hydrator and promotes healing better than an new ingredient.

      Sodium alginate is extracted from mineral-rich brown seaweed. This fine white powder transforms into jelly when put in contact with water, creating a unique all natural texture for holding the other skin care ingredients—helping to absorb and smooth skin.

      Sodium hyaluronate is powerful stuff. This gel-like water-holding molecule is a moisture-binding ingredient that helps keep skin plump and hydrated. And, it’s actually something our bodies naturally produce. Sodium hyaluronate sometimes called Hyaluronic Acid helps retain over 1,000 times its weight in water within the cells of skin, making it an excellent moisturizer.

      Scientific studies have shown that Hyaluronic Acid improve hydration and production of collagen, fight free radicals, maintain skin elasticity, and even has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that help with healing wounds.

      Sodium PCA is the sodium salt of pyroglutamic acid which is a common amino acid found naturally in many proteins. pH balance of 6.8-7.4, occurs naturally in human skin and is responsible for binding moisture to cells. Highly water-absorbent, holding several times its weight in water, making it an excellent humectant (moisture preserver). Know as The Skin-Penetration Enhancer—Sodium PCA is a naturally stronger hydrating agent, often way more so than other common compounds.

      Niacinamide also known as vitamin B3 and nicotinic acid, niacinamide is one very effective skin-restoring ingredient that offers multiple benefits for maturing skin including increased circulation. 

      We use phenoxyethanol in a very low concentration as a preservative because the most accessible alternatives for these types of formulas include parabens and formaldehyde-releasing preservatives. Phenoxyethanol is very safe at low levels. It’s been tested on the skin and eyes and it is non-irritating and non-sensitizing at levels of 2.2% or lower while being effective at only 1% concentrations. The European Union and Japan both approve its use up to that 1% level and our formulas fall well below the recommendation. Also phenoxyethanol doesn’t react with other ingredients, air, or light. This kind of stability makes it an especially effective preservative.

       Ethylhexylglycerin serves as a surfactant and preservative enhancer and acts as a safe preservative in minute amounts. It’s a proven preservative-enhancer and is often used instead of controversial parabens.

      You can count on Frownies quality natural ingredients to help enhance the appearance of the under eye area of the face.

      Why Trans-dermal Patches Help

      The weight of the patch smooths the underlying area and protects the integrity of the acid mantle (your skin's protective layer). Frownies gel masks promote smooth skin that looks more even toned and provide antioxidants to fight free radical damage! The mask laying on the skin helps penetrate the ingredients deeper in to the various layers of the skin.No more than 30 minutes is needed but you can try less and see results. 

      How to Use

      Use your first set of Eye Gels three nights in a row, and then use them once a week for best results. The combination of Frownies  Eye Gel Patch,Skin Serum at night and Eye Cream during the day will help improve the appearance of fine lines, dark spots and discoloration under the eyes as well as tone the area. Neck and Face Mask may be used as often as you like for the extra trans-dermal treatment and reused as well. 

      *Keep Gels moist with Frownies Rose Water between usages

       How to apply Trans-dermal Patches

      1. Remove the patch tray from the foil packet. The Face Mask has two sections and the Eye Gels have two pieces. The larger Mask may be slippery so take care not to drop it. On clean skin get everything ready then apply and lay back to relax. 
      2. Apply one patch to one eye area adjusting it to cover the area being treated.
      3. Once on the skin gently smooth out all the lines under the patch with the pad of your finger over top of each patch, this is so the patch’s active ingredients affect all the areas of the skin. If there are any deeper creases press the ingredients into the area. 
      4. Leave on for 15-30 minutes. 
      5. You may use the Eye Gels as a collagen treatment patch on the eyelid or around the mouth and lip area as well. 
      6. The Gel is very rich and your first application will require you rest your head back to keep the patch from slipping down your face.  As you reuse the patch it will stick more to the face.  The amount of gel allows you to reuse this patch multiple time. 

      How To Store

      Gently remove the patch and place back in the patch tray. Re-wet the patch in the tray with Frownies Rose Water Toner Hydrator to extend the life of the patch, place it in a sealed plastic bag and put in the refrigerator to use again. The patch starts to dry and become brittle because the ingredients are the patch, and they are being applied to the skin. Re-wet the patch with Rose Water Hydrator between applications to keep it active for as many uses as you can before it dissolves.
