Ca Botana: Transition skin from summer to fall


Months of swimming and tanning can strip your skin of essential oils and nutrients, leaving it dry and dull.  Get your skin glowing again for fall by exfoliating dry, dead skin and following with a hydrating, nutrient-rich mask!

  • Bamboo Cream Peel provides radiant skin year round. Slough off dead skin cells with this gentle skin smoother with natural bamboo, jojoba beads and crushed almonds. Leaves your skin soft, smooth and silky.
  • Ginkgo Mask contains a revitalizing blend of vitamins, minerals, plant extracts and Ginkgo Biloba bioflavonoids which help to brighten the skin and restore its vitality by stimulating micro-activity. Ginkgo has long been recognized for its powerful free radical scavenging abilities as well as its ability to strengthen tissue and help cells maximize skin’s oxygen levels. Skin will emerge refreshed and smooth with natural moisture balance restored. Sweet almond oil softens skin and acts as a free radical exchanger while aloe and chamomile extracts soothe and calm.

Fall Is Here! Tips on how to transition into your new autumn wellness routine.

Fall Is Here! Be prepared to transition into your new autumn wellness routine.

Summer has ended and Fall is officially in the house!   As we move from the heat of Summer, to the temperate weather of Autumn, here are some great tips to ensure a flawless transition from your Summer routine to your new Fall plan.

1.  Have Fun Outside with Autumn Activities – Hike to see the leaves changes, check out a corn maze, or just be outside to enjoy the cooler temperatures.  Organize a weekend trip with friends and family.

2.  Get Involved in Community Events – With the fall season comes many holiday themed local fun runs and events.  Look in the newspaper for Halloween runs, turkey trots and reindeer romps.  According to a 1991 summary report by ERIC Digest, a specific goal such as a race to train for increases adherence to an exercise program.  Signing up with friends or family will hold you accountable for completing the training.

3.  Head to the Trails – Fall is one of the most beautiful times of year for getting outside.  Grab a friend and find some local parks or trails to walk, run or ride a bike and take in the view of changing leaves.

4.  Dress for the Weather – When weather gets cooler, it can deter people from going outside to workout.  This problem can be mediated by wearing wind-shielding clothing and dressing in layers.  Proper attire and accessories (hats, gloves, etc.) that cut down on bulk but still allow for warmth make outdoor fitness more enjoyable as the chill of fall approaches.

5.  Drink Water – Stay hydrated even when the temperatures cool down.  People often feel less thirsty when it is not hot outside, but staying hydrated is just as important in the fall as it is when the sun a blazing down.  When fall rolls around, remember to stay on top of your fluid intake to help with both exercise recovery and appetite control.

6.  Drink Tea -  More tea to warm up for the cooler temperatures.  Green tea and black tea contain antioxidants that help ward off diseases during flu season so you can remain healthy and active as the season shifts.

7.  Avoid Holiday Candy – According to the National Institutes of Health, on average, non-obese adults gain about a pound a year around the holidays.  In addition to creating unhealthy habits, accumulation of this weight over time can lead to obesity.  Be sure to pack lots of healthy snacks to munch on throughout the day to help deter you from grazing on sweets that pop up in the office, at home or at holiday parties.

8.  Turn Fall Chores into a Workout – Raking leaves or gardening can burn around 150 calories every 30 minutes.  Turn these chores into a game by setting small, achievable goals to help pass time and burn away fat.

9.  Exercise Early in the Day – Try to work out in the morning or during the day.  With the time changing and it becoming darker earlier, it can feel as if it is later in the day than it really is.  This can make people more tired than usual.  Getting into a routine of working out early will guarantee the workout gets done and still allow time in the afternoons and evenings to relax.

10.  Vary Activities – As the weather cools down and summer ends, it can become difficult to stay motivated. Trying a variety of different activities and varying workouts, will help keep a fresh spin on exercise and allow for confidence to build within a wide range of activities.
