Ghassoul Sugar Scrub

Category: Skin Deep
Posted: 2008-04-18 14:51

Sugar scrubs are all the rage right now. So, how about making your own, one that will bring toning, health, and vitality to your skin!

Mix your Ghassoul Mask paste as usual and let sit 5 minutes. Right before applying, add 1 tsp Turbinado* sugar and combine.

Apply your Gassoul Sugar Scrub and massage (avoiding eyes) with a gentle circular motion. You will feel your skin loving this treatment! To complete, simply rinse with warm running water and pat dry.

Don't forget to hydrate your skin afterwards! My pick is Palm'Hydra Face cream.

If you want to pamper yourself from head to toe, make up a larger quantity and you will have the softest, healthiest skin in town!


*Turbinado sugar is a coarse, un-refined sugar usually found in health food stores but now more easily found at your local grocer with other baking supplies.

Girls Best Friend! Catabolic Foods

Category: Food & Your Health
Posted: 2008-04-09 20:57

Well, I continue to be amazed at all the information that exists!
I have never heard of Catabolic Foods before and venture to guess you havent' either!

So, together, let's feast!

CATABOLIC FOODS

Catabolic foods burn up more calories than they supply. Catabolic foods are the opposite of Anabolic foods. For example a medium sized apple (which is catabolic), would provide an average of 85 calories, however your metabolism would require an additional 99 more calories to metabolize it. As a result, you burn calories (and hopefully fat!)

To help maintain your weight it would be helpful to eat a minimum of ten servings of catabolic foods each day. In addition to catabolic foods one can eat proteins and other carbohydrates in moderation without gaining weight.

The high grade catabolic foods are more effective than others. It is best to spread the consumption of your catabolics over the course of the whole day.
