Spring Cleansing Juice

With Winter done and dusted, what better way to welcome Spring than with a gorgeously green cleansing juice! All Winter long, we tend to hold on to toxins, and that creates mucus in the Spring. Then, with the Spring pollen and irritants in the air triggering allergies, we become sick. To help ward off the sniffles, whip up as many green juices with some slightly bitter foods to enjoy throughout the week. You’ll flood your immune system with supportive nutrients so you’ll be fully armed against any pesky allergens flying your way.

I just found out about this amazing trick on how to get the best shave. Instead of using shaving cream, you use coconut oil. It prevents your skin from getting those red, itchy bumps because it doesn’t contain any of the chemicals that shaving creams use. Using coconut oil as shaving cream also moisturizes your skin and prevents dry skin. Now you will never have to get out of the shower again and run to the moisturizer to stop the itching and burning! The coconut oil takes care of all that! You will never use regular shaving cream again.
