      Think Green for March Health Madness

      What food is sadly lacking from the diet of most people around the world? Greens! St. Patty's Day or getting ready for spring, green is the color.  Green beer, just one or two, but the rest of the month look for green foods daily to improve liver function which improves you skin's clarity and over all appearance. 

      Greens are packed with nutrients, especially vitamin C, vitamin B6, calcium, iron, zinc, folate, lutein, beta carotene, chlorophyll and protein. Yes, protein. Greens contain a large percentage of calories as protein.

      For example, broccoli is over 50% protein. Kale is 17% protein. One bunch of kale supplies above the recommended daily allowance for many of the essential amino acids, the building blocks of protein, and close to the RDA for many others -- all in roughly 225 calories. 

      Try pampering yourself with a fantastically colorful salad, a roasted pan of green  vegetables like mustard greens or collard greens, or a beautify and nutritious green smoothie. 

      The possibilities are endless, although it may seem like you’re relegated to choosing between broccoli or a Caesar salad, both are great but there is more. 

      Get creative. Get loving. The act of cooking for yourself is itself a declaration of your own value - treat your body kindly. Liver gets active in the spring to cleans the blood and the color to cleanse the liver is green. 

      Greens provide essential alkaline minerals such as calcium and magnesium that are not found in sufficient quantities in fruits, nuts and seeds. When animals are fed a low calcium diet that is high in phosphorus, they develop bone disorders and dental problems.

      To provide enough minerals in the diet, we need a sufficient quantity and variety of green vegetables. We also need to eat greens in such a way that the body can easily assimilate the nutrients.

      Most people don’t eat a great variety of greens, and sadly, when it comes to the most important greens, they don’t eat hardly any of those at all. The most important greens are the ones that contain the most minerals such as kale, broccoli, mustard greens, and collards.

      These greens are not eaten raw very often because their tough, fibrous nature make them tough to chew, the valuable nutrients aren’t always released from the cell walls from chewing alone. These vegetables are best cooked.

      For optimal health, you need to include green vegetables daily, in a form that is easy for the body to assimilate. While salads are great, and should be eaten regularly, it’s often the case that they are not providing all of the nutrition necessary for optimal health because they are not chewed well enough to release all the nutrients from the cell walls.

      Sauteing, steaming and boiling dark greens and adding our favorite dressing is a place to start. Green drinks are easy and tasty start with a simple basic and build your favorite. 

      Take leafy greens such as dark green lettuces, kale, spinach, parsley, or any others and enough  water for blending. 

      Place a handful of green leafy vegetables in the blender.  Add enough water to cover the vegetables and blend until vegetables are completely dissolved. Pour liquid into a 1 1/2 to 2 quart container and fill with water.  Shake well before drinking.  Sip throughout the day in place of water.  Adding fresh ginger root, lemon or mint to the blend adds a nice flavor. Mix in any frozen fruit for a thick smoothie. If the drink seems plain add lemon it always picks up the beverage. 

       

      Don't Treat Yourself with Junk Food

      frownies self love valentine special offer

      Valentine’s Day may call to mind fatty steaks and rich chocolates, but the truth is heavy food and overeating leaves most of us feeling slow and sleepy. Not a good way to love on yourself!

      Try pampering yourself with bone broth soup, or a fantastically colorful salad, a roasted pan of cruciferous vegetables, a delectable dark chocolate mousse, a cheesy frittata, yummy mint hummus, candied walnuts, dill salmon and quinoa pilaf…

      The possibilities are endless, although it may seem like you’re relegated to choosing between a loaded baked potato and a Caesar salad.

      Get creative. Get loving. The act of cooking for yourself is itself a declaration of your own value - treat your body kindly.

      Swivel down into the most comfortable spot in your home (bring yourself some of that herbal tea and a square of dark chocolate) and let yourself get lost for a little while.

      This list is certainly not exhaustive.

      Singing by yourself? Totally restorative.

      Stretching out on the floor and staring through a skylight? Magical.

      Practicing re balancing your energy through strategic breathing exercises? Priceless. (YouTube breathing exercises)

      Toxic Skin Care Ingredients 

      Everyday the average person uses 10 different skin care products on his or her face and body, We slather, lather, rub and spray--and since our skin acts more like a sponge than a barrier, we absorb approximately 130 chemicals in our daily routines. For most, these are chemicals we regularly expose ourselves to. Cosmetic companies and the FDA maintain that these chemicals are safe, and some of them somewhat are—IN SMALL DOSES!

      Effects of Hidden Ingredients

      Consider this, the average woman wears makeup every day. This helps you to begin to understand how a little pump here and a simple spray there begins to add up! The scary fact is, no one fully knows how certain chemicals affect us long-term, or how they react when combined together within our bodies. There are other chemicals that do have known dangers: Phthalates, for example, often found in artificial fragrances, are classified as hormone disruptors which can be linked to birth defects, sperm damage, and infertility.

      Switching to Non-Toxic Skin Care

      The face and neck area is where the most products are applied. This is why switching to non-toxic products for this area of the skin is how you can make the biggest difference for your skin and overall health. Swap out skincare with hidden ingredients for Frownies Moisturizer for Face and Neck and Frownies Eye Cream. If you think about it you may cringe. Why would we want to put the grossest ingredients right on our face? Not to mention a lot of skincare and anti-aging treatments for face and neck have neurotoxins, yet we put them right on our heads.

      The Power of Awareness

      Sometimes a little awareness can go a long way. Being aware that you can't see all the ingredients in your beauty products may leave you a bit hopeless, but there is hope. Frownies Products have no hidden harmful chemicals, ONLY HEALTHY PLANT INGREDIENTS that help heal and protect your skin naturally. Diet can be a large factor in skin health but unnatural skin care ingredients will perpetuate skin issues and illnesses. Just like your body needs healthy natural ingredients to thrive so does your skin. Don't starve your skin, instead feed it what it needs to do its job properly.

      Having Hope During Illness

      Before you give up hope take a moment to love your skin, having gratitude that there is another option. You can change the quality of your skin's health with Frownies, and the side effects are balanced, glowing, younger looking skin!

      5 Ways Cold Climates Help Our Skin

      Frownies Cyro therapy for your face Wrinkles pores wrinkle cold weather  

       When we think about winter weather, we think dry hands, cracked noses, red cheeks— basically, we’re reminded of a slew of unsavory skin conditions that colder temperatures inflict upon us. 

      But, given that we have a few more months of freezing weather to endure, Frownies invite you to put on your rose colored glasses  with us and see if there are actually some benefits to those icy winds. After learning the following five ways chilly temperatures can actually help your skin, we’ve decided that maybe cold weather really isn’t so bad after all.

       

      1. It helps keep pores clog-free.
      Think cryotherapy; cold weather can act as a tonic or astringent. It helps to reduce clogs and keep pores less visible and refined. Cold weather also slows down and prevents the secretion of sebum, keeping shine at bay and reducing acne.
      2. It can improve your sleep.
      Getting a full night’s sleep is necessary for skin health, from reducing under eye circles to making sure your complexion stays glowing. Too-high nighttime temps actually disturb sleep—causing tossing and turning for most people—while coldness mimics the body’s natural drop in  internal temperature, which occurs a couple hours after we hit the sack. Therefore, most sleep scientists believe that a slightly cool room contributes to good sleep.

      3. It reduces puffiness.
      Cold weather promotes blood circulation in both the face and body, having a magical effect on reducing inflammation and swelling to the eyes and face. 

       4. It can keep you looking younger. 

      Cold weather enhances the complexion and rejuvenates skin. In a way, it slows down the aging process—think of cryotherapy spa treatments or splashing cold water on your face in the morning—and keeps skin tight, vibrant and radiant.

      5. It helps you burn fat.
      Okay, so this is more of an all-over-your-body effect of cold weather, but it can make a significant impact on your general appearance: In 2012, researchers discovered that cold weather appears to trigger calorie burn. Basically, cold temps signal your “brown fat” (the fat that allegedly helps burn your other “white fat”) to get to work, meaning that winter weather can be the catalyst for weight loss.
