5 Body Parts You Can Use Natural Deodorant to Stop the Smell

Ever notice a little funk in places that cause you a lot of embarrassment such as in your cleavage, stomach rolls, or your stinky feet that never smell fresh?

It is very common to sweat in places you don't imagine such as your groin and you may also notice that groin sweat smells different too than in other areas of your body. And it does in fact because your sweat glands ARE different in terms of the secretions they emit as you sweat.

And remember it is the sweat that contains bacteria that causes the body odour. It doesn't mean you are a stinky person but certainly some people seem to barely sweat at all while others sweat profusely.

Yoga is Therapy for Your Body and Mind: A Pro-Aging Solution for Women

I escaped my computer today, at noon on a Monday, in order to visit my yoga studio for a hot vinyasa yoga class. Of all the things I have been missing during the pandemic, my in-person hot yoga practice at my studio has been top of the list. I didn't realize how much I even missed it until I had the chance to return to it these past couple days.

This may not seem like a big deal to you but it's a big deal to me. Monday's are usually the worst day of the week for me. The most stressful with the longest "to do" list ever, my most anxiety-filled day that I just power through with all my masculine energy to tackle all the "stuff" on my list. In fact, I almost cancelled my yoga class booking but felt bad to do that to my friend who owns the studio knowing they have been closed for months. 

As I lay there on my mat, I felt calm and peaceful.

I felt at one with the other humans in the room who were also there sweating their butts off from the minute of entry into the hot studio. If you have never experienced this, you must. And you may hate it. But that's part of what I am writing about here today. 

To me the part of being in the hot studio is that it is uncomfortably hot. That's the point. Doing yoga in this hot studio, like actually moving your body and getting into challenging poses, is also uncomfortable...and furthermore part of the point.

The Story of How I Cleaned Up My Health and Got Big Rewards

I was in my late twenties, a newlywed woman, ready to finally ditch the birth control pills I had been on since 16 when the doctor put me on it because of brutally heavy periods. I was 27 and we were ready to have a baby...but alas my body was so messed from being on the pill that the period never came and apparently baby-making wasn't going to happen. I was diagnosed with PCOS, Polycystic ovarian syndrome. Basically I would never ovulate on my own and my hormones were a mess. Who knew!?

Is Your Skin Getting the Health Benefits of the Sea Every Day?

As a woman in midlife, you want to be making the healthiest choices possible when it comes to what you put ON and IN your body. Quality really does matter. 

Choosing toxin-free, clean and natural skincare is one of the first steps to take to ensure your health and longevity in midlife. Making the choice of clean skincare products can help to ensure that you do not get any side effects such as hormonal disruption (from xenoestrogenic toxins), any topical skin issues such as skin rashes, or irritation, or more severe symptoms such as headaches, nausea, fertility issues, or other known effects from toxic ingredients. 

One of our most revered ways of unlocking our own skin's potential is with the use of marine ingredients in both our topical natural skincare and in ingestible products. With that in mind, we want to introduce you to Bend Beauty. We discovered Bend Beauty by virtue of being two proudly Canadian brands who share a mutual love of marine ingredients in skincare products.

7 of the Best Ways to Conquer your Puffy Eyes and Wrinkles

7 of the Best Ways to Conquer your Puffy Eyes and Wrinkles

I am passionate about pro-aging which means finding ways to answer the question that is often asked by women all around the world which is "How to age gracefully with diet, exercise and wellness products?". I feel very strongly that right off the bat we need to stop thinking about aging as a bad thing. If you aren't aging, then you aren't alive. 

Having said that, I believe that we can age with grace and beauty and, most importantly, appropriately for our age. Have you ever met someone that is your age or younger but looks much, much older than you or older than you would have guessed?

Chances are high that they have been living large and not following some basic fundamental principles of looking after their skin. It could also be genetics or skin type, of course, as some people are prone to age quicker than others. 

In fact, if you are familiar with the field of epigenetics you know that a large portion of your health can be attributed to genetic makeup whereas the remaining health factors come down to lifestyle habits and living a life of wellness that can change the course of your health.
