Love your Summer Skin

It’s no secret that the earth would be a depressing place without the sun.  The sun brings life to our world and it also produces us with a source of vitamin D, as essential vitamin that plays a core role in human development.  Vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of many fundamental functions, but this does not warrant an excuse irresponsibly expose your skin to the sun’s rays.

The Skin is our largest organ

The surface of the skin is covered by a coating known as the acid mantle.The acid mantle is made from perspiration and sebum (an oil), and it;s role is to protect the skin from any unwelcome damage.  The acid mantle also inhibits the growth of fungi which can reduce the risk of allergies and blemishes.

However, there are many factors that can impact the acid mantle, which in turn can alter the pH level of the skin’s surface (healthy skin should have a pH of 5.5). Since the skin is our largest organ, and one that protects all out other crucial components it is therefore vital that you show love and care towards your skin, particularly during the summer months.

Avoid Sun Damage

The UK may not be renowned for its sun-infused climate, but sun damage is still possible and something that should be approached seriously.  If you are planning a trip abroad this year, perhaps somewhere a little more tropical, it is crucial that you keep your skin protected; sun damage can cause premature ageing due to the effect UVA rays have on elastin fibers in the skin.  Too much sun exposure can lead to a loss of elasticity and this, ultimately, causes wrinkles.

Make sure you avoid the leather look by following some simple steps:

  • Wear a hat and sunglasses – these will protect the most sensitive areas of your face and neck where your skin tends to be more delicate.
  • Slap on the sunscreen – this will offer your skin the greatest protection.  Both of the Aloe sunscreens will leave skin silky smooth; they are water resistant and they can double up as an after sun lotion.  SPF 30 is also believed to protect the skin from 97% of all the incoming UVB rays – the rays that cause the skin to turn red – and this can make a significant difference to your skin.  Forever’s sunscreens also protect the skin from UVA rays, UVA rays penetrate deeper into the skin that UVB, which means skin cells are more susceptible to being damaged.

Forever Protein Pancakes

When you follow the Forever F.I.T. program, which is our follow on weight management program which many people do after the Clean 9 cleanse, you don’t need to keep to an exact strict regime of protein shakes for breakfast, by trying out different recipes and keeping variety in your diet you are far more likely to succeed and hit your long term goals.

Why not try a scoop of the Forever Lite Ultra protein powder in your pancakes, for a delicious breakfast alternative.  Protein builds muscle and without proper protein intake, your body will struggle to recover after exercise and build muscle.  It may even break down muscle tissue in order to access essential amino acids.

For more great recipe ideas take a look at my dedicated Forever FIT website, where you can learn more about the Clean 9 cleanse and the follow on FIT programs, or tale a look at the weight management category here on my blog.

Forever Lite Ultra Protein Pancakes Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1/2 a cup of oats
  • 1/2 a banana
  • cinnamon

Aloe Vera Gel – FAQs

There are many different Aloe Vera drinks available on the market.  The advice given in this post refers to Forever Living Aloe Vera Gel, which has the primary ingredient of pure stabilised aloe vera fillet gel, taken directly from the centre of the leaf, and is available in 4 different flavours.  Aloe Vera Gel, Bits n’ Peaches, Aloe Berry Nectar and Forever Freedom. 427566_323028404422414_219087814816474_902641_18814447_n

Like orange juice, Aloe Vera is a non toxic natural drink.  It has been drunk by man for many centuries and most people are only now discovering its benefits.

 

How much should I drink ?

This depends on your reason for drinking Aloe.  As with other nutritional supplements, some people take a small amount each morning – 2fl oz (60ml) to maintain general well being.  Other people boost their intake for specific reasons – when they might drink up to 6fl oz (180ml) or more a day.  The average, and the dose I personally take, is 4fl oz (120ml) per day.

Some people, such as the elderly, need less, whereas those with a larger frame need more.

Can children drink Aloe Vera?

Yes they can, but the serving size is reduced depending on their age.

  • Over 12 Years – as for adults
  • 6-12 Years – half of adult dose
  • 3-5 years  – quarter of adult dose
  • 2-3 years – sixth of adult dose
  • Not recommended for under 2s

Can I mix it with anything else ?Bee_Products_large

Yes, if you really don’t like the taste then try mixing it with pure fruit juice, cordial or honey.

 

When is the best time to drink aloe?

We recommend you take your Aloe on an empty stomach first thing in the morning to get the maximum benefit.  After drinking Aloe you can go ahead and have your tea/coffee or breakfast.

When should I feel some benefits?

We anticipate that few people will feel notable benefits before 6 weeks. We would urge you to take it for a trial period of at least 3 months.

How should I store the drink?

As with most natural foods, once you’ve opened  the bottle, it should be stored in the fridge with the lid tightly closed.  Of course, during storage, the natural pulp will settle, so you should always shake the bottle before use.  Note that the date stamped on the bottom of the container is the bottling date.  The ‘use by’ date is on the label on the lid.

5 ways to prepare for the Clean 9

The Clean 9 program is a body  cleansing system expertly devised and formulated by Forever Living products.  It is designed to kick-start the FIT program  and gives you the perfect starting point for transforming your diet and fitness habits.  Is it based around Forever’s best-selling Aloe Vera Gel drink and is a nutritionally balanced program which allows you to see great results in just 9 days, hence the name.

To get the best results from the program preparation is key, so here are my 5 top tips at getting the most out of your C9 program.

  1. If you have never tried Aloe Vera Gel before then when your box arrives start drinking the Aloe Gel for a week before you fully start the program.  Ideally you should drink 60mls each day, however this would mean buying an extra bottle of drinking Gel.  You can drink 30mls each day for 6 days before you start with the Gel that comes with the pack, or up your dose to 60mls and miss one of the 120ml doses on each of days 1 and 2.
  2. Cut right back on caffeine and alcohol.  It is withdrawal from these which often causes people headaches on the first 2 days.  If you can stop completely for the 4 days before you start then that will give you the best chance of success.
  3. Start doing 30 minutes of exercise every day (or more) for 5-7 days before you start so you get into the habit of it.
  4. Up your water intake to 2 litres per day.  To help with tip 2 and tip 4 together you can replace tea and coffee with hot water and lemon and always carry a bottle of water round with you.  Always start your day by drinking a large glass of water.
  5. Practice making some 600 calorie meals ready for days 3-9.  I use myfitnesspal to log my calorie intake, or if you have a FitBit  you can log your exercise and calorie intake on their app too.

You can purchase the Clean 9 from my on-line shop, and when you do please get in touch as we have a secret Facebook support group you can be added to, and I can personally offer advice and support to help you achieve your own personal goals, which can be different for everybody.  It may be you want to look and feel fabulous for a party or special event, look great in your bikini on holiday, or just improve your diet and fitness generally.

What do you do after the Clean 9 Cleanse?

The Clean 9 is a full body cleanse, and if you don’t already know all about it please take a look at my previous posts about the Clean 9, and my earlier video diaries of day 1, day 2 and day 5 of the cleanse.

Update – December 2016 – The FIT program has been updated with a new pack and fabulous new exercise plans and support and changed to a more flexible 15 day programme – read my latest post https://siliconbullet.wordpress.com/2016/12/12/new-forever-f-i-t/ for more information.  The supplements and shakes still remain the same as in this video.

I have reached the end of my cleanse, and I feel fabulous!  I feel less bloated and I have increased energy and  I was told I was ‘glowing’ by a customer this week too, which really helps my self confidence.

But once the 9 days are over , what do I do now? Take a look at my Day 9 video diary to find out

F.I.T. Program

My FIT 1 Pack

My FIT 1 Pack

The F.I.T. 1 program, is a 30 day regime which allows you to continue towards your weight management goals in a sustainable, healthy way F.I.T. 2 builds lean muscle, tones and transforms your body and is the third step in the program.

F.I.T 1 and F.I.T. 2 both come with everything you need to follow the program, plus an information booklet with full details to help you achieve the results you desire.

The main product I find which helps me maintain my weight is the Forever Lite Ultra Shakes, which I use to replace my breakfast every day, or when I just don’t have time to prepare a healthy meal.  They are just so convenient and prevent me grabbing for the wrong kinds of foods.

Take a look at this video all about the shakes, which I prepared for an online informaitonal event my Forever team did together to promote the weight management products.  It’s my first attempt at a ‘shopping channel’ type informational video, so be kind and not too critical!

Please contact me for full details and pricing or take a look at my on-line shop for details.

Clean 9 Cleanse Day 5 – What can you eat on Clean 9 ?

If you don’t know what the Clean 9 cleanse is, then please take a look at my previous post about the 9 Day cleanse Program, and also my previous Video diaries from Day 1, about what is included in the program, and Day 2 about the best way to prepare for your cleanse.

The common misconception about the Clean 9 is that you can’t eat at all, but this is only the case in the first 2 days. You only give your body a break from full meals at the start, then from days 3 to 9 you include a healthy 600 calorie meal into your program, either at lunch time or for an evening meal.  So tonight I recorded a video about what you can eat whilst my dinner is cooking!

You need to try and avoid processed food and high sugar and fat content whilst doing the cleanse, and if you would like to see some wonderful healthy recipes then please take a look at my previous posts All About Nutritous and Nutritious Nutrition.

Remember you also have free foods, a list of which is found in the booklet you get when you buy the program, which include many fruits and vegetables, mostly eaten raw, which are low in GI.  As of December 2016 the programme has been updated with more information about Free Foods – you can read a summary of what you need to do in my post Clean 9 Free Foods – Updated.

If you decide that you would like to try the Clean 9 yourself then please get in touch.  I can share with you lots of hints and tips and more recipe ideas to make your cleanse really successful and tasty. So get in touch to find out how to buy your own Clean 9 pack and get started on a new you.

I am also currently looking for people who are looking for extra income to join my growing team, and if you have a business which involves health or fitness, adding the Clean 9 to your business by joining my team could be just what you are looking for.  We offer full support and training to new team members, get in touch to find out more.
