What is Chlorophyll?!

Hello my beauty fans... Have you ever seen anyone drinking green water or seen on Pressed Juicery’s menu “chlorophyll h2o ”? It may have been a long time since you have heard the word chlorophyll. Many of us learned about it in elementary school, it is the pigment that makes plants green. This helps them convert sunlight into energy through photosynthesis. Chlorophyll is comparable to hemoglobin, the red blood cells that get oxygen to your blood. This means our body will benefit from chlorophyll since it knows exactly what to do with it!

Chlorophyll is a super food! It’s packed with magnesium, iron, calcium, potassium, vitamin A, vitamin K, vitamin E, vitamin C, antioxidants, and beta-carotene. It will cleanse your blood, carry oxygen, and fights anemia. It is great for digestion and a healthy detox. Chlorophyll will flush out toxins and promotes healthy blood flow. Here is one many will love and who suffer from breakouts… Chlorophyll can help stop breakouts or make them clear up faster! Chlorophyll acts as a germ killer meaning it will fight blemishes inside and out. Lastly, it can protect your skin from the sun by absorbing sunlight and protecting from harmful UV rays!

I have had many people seen me drink this green water and the first thing they ask is, “Does it taste bad?” In my opinion it’s flavorless and I love to add it into my water bottle every morning before heading out! You can find chlorophyll drops at a health food store. Add a few drops into your water and you will give your water an EXTRA BEAUTY BOOST!! Let me know if you try it and is you see any difference in your skin!

Remember… Keep it beautiful!!

XOXO

Will cutting dairy cause your breakouts to stop?!

It is important to cleanse your face and use the right skincare but it is only half of what it takes to achieve a clear, glowing complexion. You can give your skin the best treatment but sometimes not see results and this can be very frustrating! This is why what put into your body is just as important as what you put onto your face! May diary be the reason why your skin does not seem to clear up?

After reading an article about Khloe Kardashian cutting out dairy and how it contributed to her 11-pound weight loss in just six weeks I decided it was time to inform you guys a little on what dairy can do to your skin. It can cause your skin to create excess oil (sebum), which clogs pores, and it can cause dead skin cells to bind to one another, leading to more acne. Dairy contains growth hormones and cause inflammation! Once again this can lead to acne!

We all love ice cream during the warm weather and who doesn’t want to get froyo on a warm summer night?! Everyone enjoys some cheese too and if you’re like me you love to ask for some extra cheese (you know you’re guilty too)! How about this summer we all try limiting our diary intake to two servings a day or try replacing dairy with some alternatives! Ben and Jerry’s offers non-dairy flavors so whenever you have a sweet tooth craving why not try their Chunky Monkey flavor!! If cutting down dairy works for you let me know you can even take before and afters to see what difference it will make on your skin!
