1907 Alkaline Water Review

Benefits of alkaline water via @agirlsgottaspa

By now, we all know…or should know the health and beauty benefits of drinking water. Approximately 50 to 70% of our body mass is made up of water so it is important to replenish our bodies with the water that we lose on a daily basis.

Water is essential to our health because it removes toxins from our bodies thus cleanses it and is required to process all of the nutrients from the food we eat and carry the assimilated nutrients to the cells by circulating through the lymphatic system.

Drinking water also has a ton of beauty benefits.  Drinking water prevents dehydration, which becomes most noticeable in your skin first. If you’ve ever gotten the flu and became dehydrated you may have noticed it first in your lips cracking and becoming dry and then on your face as well. Read more

Health and Beauty Dead Sea Minerals Review



Health & Beauty Dead Sea Minerals #Skincare

The Dead Sea is known for its one-of-a-kind mineral-rich properties. It is highly sought after in skin and body care because of how well it nourishes the skin.

Health & Beauty Dead Sea Minerals, an Israeli based beauty brand, recently reached out to me to try some of their skin care. This winter has caused carnage with my skin, so I agreed without batting an eye.

Soapless Face Peeling with Dead Sea Mud: This is an exfoliating cleanser that contains dead sea mud, green tea extract, argan oil, olive oil, tea tree oil, aloe vera and chamomile. It is gentle enough for everyday use. The consistency is like a thin gel and it’s not drying to your face. The exfoliation is nice and my skin felt great after using it. It does have a strong fragrance to it.

Purifying Mud Mask: I do love a good mud mask, which always works best with my combination skin. While oftentimes the downside is that clay or mud masks can tend to also be drying, this particular mud mask is enriched with aloe vera. While Health and Beauty says this product is safe for use 2-3 times per week, I always advise to only use a mud mask 1-2 to prevent skin from going into overdrive with sebum production. The texture of this mud mask is creamy and it does have that familiar mud fragrance that I love. Read more
