We were blessed with a few brilliant beams of sun this weekend and it felt amazing. It was like a breath of fresh air, providing a little sample of what’s to come this spring. So in the spirit of those bloom-filled days that are just around the corner, I’m sharing 3 things I’m completely smitten with that will put a little spring your step, making you look and feel beautiful inside and out.

Juice Beauty
Did you know that your skin absorbs over 60% of what’s placed on it? Off-hand do you know the ingredients in your ‘favorite’ cleanser or mascara? I’ll be honest, before I started blogging (which really opened my eyes to good skincare practices), I was using whatever had a pretty bottle. Well, I’ll be the first to tell you – a pretty bottle does not create a pretty face.

So when Juice Beauty contacted me, I did a little research (as I always do before working with a brand) and discovered this stuff is really incredible! Juice Beauty creates clean makeup and skincare that is certified organic, vegan and cruelty-free. Their main ingredient in most of their product is organic juice!

Once I found out that Gwyneth Paltrow, whom I admire on so many levels, is their Creative Director for Makeup, I was game to try! The products I recommend include: Green Apple Peel Sensitive, Green Apple Age Defy Moisturizer, Green Apple Age Defy Serum, Stem Cellular Organic Exfoliating Peel Spray, Stem Cellular CC Cream, & Phyto-Pigments Ultra Natural Mascara.

Salad Power
I came across Salad Power via Instagram and knew I had to try it. They’re the only juice company that uses more vegetables than fruit! Their name lives up to the taste – you literally feel like you’re drinking a really delicious salad. It’s not too sweet, has a little spice and is the perfect morning or afternoon snack. Salad Power includes their veggie superfood blend in all of their juices which consists of kale, carrot, spinach, celery, cucumber, tomato and bell pepper. This makes them lower in sugar and higher in vitamins than most all other green juices. My favorite is the Assorted Pack which includes every flavor – Veggies + Apple, Veggies + Mango, Veggies + Pineapple & Just Veggies. And I love every single one.

Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics
I’ve been taking Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics for the past month and have noticed a significant difference in my daily digestion. “Science has established that approximately 70% of immune system cells reside in the digestive tract. Probiotics support those immune system cells by, among other things, crowding out unfriendly guests. The gut is the first line of immune defense, and to stay healthy, we need a healthy population of friendly bacteria.” If you’re looking to just feel better or maybe alleviate a little bloat before spring break – I definitely recommend Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics to kick your system into gear…and to maintain a healthy, regular status (if you know what I mean).
