How do you drink in the glow?

Botanical based nutrient drinks are the best way to quench your thirst, hydrate and benefit your skin. When you head to the pool, deck or go to reach for a refreshing drink after the bike ride, why not make the drink work for you? Key nutrients are needed for our body to maintain healthy glowing skin. Great skin begins within after all. So what are some key nutrients to look for in your summer mocktail?
Hyaluronic acid helps retain moisture to support and maintain the look of supple, radiant skin. Sea buckthorn powder, pine bark extract, and vitamin
C provide antioxidant protection and support collagen production. Biotin helps support and maintain healthy skin, hair and nails, Gotu kola leaf and stem extract maintains healthy circulation to help keep skin nourished from within. Like a super water for your skin, it’s your daily dose of inner-loving care to help skin maintain its elasticity, smooth texture, plumpness, and overall healthy-looking glow. So instead of searching all over for this magical combo, my fav go to brand you hear me talk a lot about has this beautiful combo in their Health Canada approved Skin Elixir. With an Acai flavour, the Elixir is a great addition to your Fizz drink or added to a beautiful steeped tea of Hibiscus.

Add in Hibiscus Steeped Tea

For an added boost of skin & health benefits, why not add in a cool pot of steeped hibiscus tea? Now you are packing this mocktail with some great benefits.In a 2010 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial, it was found consuming hibiscus tea lowered blood pressure along with possible effects of reducing cholesterol.
Five key health benefits of hibiscus:
  • could promote weight loss
  • may boost liver function
  • may lower blood fat levels
  • packed with antioxidants
  • may lower blood pressure

Entrepreneur’s Elixir

One group of people who could really use support for their skin and boost nutrients is entrepreneurs. If you subscribe to my YouTube channel, you know I love to chat about and offer tips to entrepreneurs. First, I am a serial entrepreneur. I understand how we tick and what we will not give up for our businesses. Typically we will trade our health for more time and money over and over. Years of this practice eventually compromises our health routines, nutrient intake and our skin begins to show the signs of neglect. Second, coffee and entrepreneurship are life companions. I have worked with entrepreneurs who start their day with a coffee and by 3pm and they are on coffee number 5 with no food. Finding hacks to get nutrients into entrepreneurs is one of my favourite things to work on in my nutrition practice.

Not only will they begin to help improve their skin for client meetings, being online or in pictures, but they also will increase their nutrient intake with this little hack. As we age, naturally our collagen production begins to slow. Combined with stress, environmental factors and how the entrepreneur lives for “good” stress, this Skin Elixir and hibiscus tea mocktail could be the best win for you this summer! Your body will thank you!
