Simple Tips to Staying Healthy During The Rest of the Holidays!

Simple Tips to Staying Healthy During The Rest of the Holidays!
The winter holidays are known for bouts of binging on the treats we look forward to all year. And it’s no wonder either. But then there’s the guilt that follows - and you end up regretting everything you enjoyed so much.
So what do you do? Skip out on the fun and festivities? No way. We love our sweets (obviously - we’re a bakery!) and we aren’t about to ask you to put them down. However, if you really want to enjoy them - make sure you’re balancing out all that sugar with some healthier practices.
  1. Drink a LOT of water. Water is cleansing and balancing. It helps to detox the extra sugar you’re consuming as well as dilute it so you don’t get that dreaded sugar hangover.
  2. Eat twice as many greens. Similar to water, greens detoxify and balance out your body. They are packed with minerals which are the opposite of sugar. So eat plenty of them and even better - grab a high quality green powder supplement.
  3. Drink less alcohol. Not saying you shouldn’t have a drink or two, but keep it at that. More than two drinks overwhelms your liver, dehydrates you and reduces your sleep quality.
  4. Sleep. Don’t skimp on the rest. It’s when you sleep that your body has the chance to detoxify what it’s been given. So either go to bed at a decent time, or make sure you’re able to sleep in the next morning.
  5. Detox Deeply. What goes in must come out. The best way to do this is through hydration and sweat. Water carries a ton of our toxins out of the body so make good use of it. Run a hot shower or sit in a sauna/steam room and breathe in the heat. For an even deeper detox, add a few sprays of our Eucalyptus Shower Mist into the steam and let it clean you out and relax you at the same time!
We want you to be healthy and also enjoy your life. There will always be many occasions in life that call for sweets and sugary delights. It’s just about finding balance. And then the benefits will come through for you!

At Eurospa, we are always here to make the quality of your life, even higher. Reach out for ordering or to ask further questions!

Gift the Gift of Happier Winter Skin for the Holidays!

Dry skin happens. It’s just part of winter. It’s even worse when you’re constantly going from inside heat to cold outside air.  It causes your skin to tighten and become severely dehydrated. It’s so uncomfortable, makes your skin crack and flake and it’s just downhill from there.  Nobody wants that. So why we want to share some tried and true natural fixes to help you save your skin this winter as well as how to pass the gift of healing on to others.

Exfoliate often. The more often you feel that tightening of your skin, the more often you should exfoliate. You can easily make your own scrub by mixing lemon juice and sugar and then gently massaging it into your skin. With a circular massage of the skin with this beauty scrub, rough spots on the face become even. The vitamins C in the lemons is a good astringent that lightens the skin tone, removes patches on the skin and encourages cell growth. Mix a teaspoon of sugar and mix it with juice of half a lemon, use cotton balls to scrub all over the face. Put a jar of it on your nightstand and apply it regularly. Want it less abrasive? Replace the sugar with baking soda.

Get into the steam. Moisturize efficiently. Get into a steam room or use a humidifier the most common rooms of your home. Humidifiers add a subtle moisture to the air, helping bring balance to your dry skin. We definitely recommend adding a few sprays of our eucalyptus oil shower spray to the room, the humidifier and also your steam room, sauna or shower.  Eucalyptus in the air will not only open up the bronchial passages for better respiratory health and to cleanse the skin! It's affordable, has a long list of health benefits and fits great as a stocking suffer!

Oils and creams. The right kind of moisture forms a protective layer on the skin keeping it safe by keeping it hydrated. Oils that are easily absorbed by the skin, such as coconut, jojoba and almond, tend to be better at keeping the real moisture in, allowing the skin the best nourishment possible. Coconut oil makes the skin feel softer and removes its previous scaly characteristic by moistening it in a natural way. Coconut oil has sufficient amounts of fatty acid that make up for any loss of moisture from the skin. It works best when left on for an entire night. Apply proper amount before going to sleep and wash it off in the morning; do this every night. Over the counter creams work well in the beginning but only leave a surface layer of hydration.  

Drink up. No, not alcohol - that’s dehydrating! Drink more water and reduce your caffeine intake. Caffeine dehydrates the skin cells and causes inflammation. Drinking water does the opposite; calms the skin and nourishes the cells, causing you to adapt to the changing temperatures more easily and beautifully!
