Are you ready to feel and look fabulous with your partner this pre-Valentine weekend?

I would like to share 3 mind, body, spirit, beauty remedies and tips suggested by Dr. Oz.  They may help you reduce stress, improve your mood; nourish and rejuvenate your skin, and keep your heart healthy.

1. One of Dr. Oz’s tips is a relaxing beauty remedies facial mask that you can use to exfoliate, rejuvenate and nourish your winter skin.

Mind Body Spirit Beauty Remedies and Tips For Valentine

Beauty Remedies Facial Meditation with a Hot Cocoa Face Mask


  • 3 tbsp cocoa (contains fatty acids to keep skin nourished)
  • 3 tbsp plain yogurt (locks moisture in)
  • 1.5 tbsp raw honey (reduces inflammation and redness)
  • 1.5 tbsp oatmeal (an exfoliant that is also good for sensitive skin)
  • some water if needed


Mix all the ingredients and apply to your face and neck for 15-20 minutes. Rinse the Hot Cocoa Facial off with water.


2. Dr Oz also believes that having happy and healthy sex can help you relax and feel sexy.

Hot Valentine Love

Sex not only reduces stress, it can also help you feel and look happier and younger.

To improve your libido for your Valentine, you might want to include some nutmeg, oysters, nuts and seeds, bananas and asparagus with your Valentine meal.


3.  Finally, Dr. Oz suggests that having a glass of hot red wine may help you prevent heart attacks

Hot Red Wine for a Healthy Heart

If you enjoy some mulled wine with your Valentine– red wine heated with cinnamon, clove, brandy and lemon zest – you can help reduce your risk of a heart attack. It’s rich with antioxidants and inhibits the narrowing of arteries. Bonus: cinnamon and clove can help lower cholesterol.


P.S. Enjoy a Valentine Bonus

Beauty Remedies and Tips for Weight Loss Detox in the Summer

July 28, 2012

1 Comment


Summer is a beautiful time of the year. It can be also the healthiest time if you learn to take advantage of the summer weather, long days and abundance of seasonal fruits and vegetables.

Summer can be the right time for natural fast weight loss,  detox and lots of inexpensive beauty remedies to nourish and rejuvenate your skin.

Here are some helpful hot weather tips for you to enjoy your summer  :

I. Try to drink two-three extra glasses of water a day– it is very easy to do when it is hot outside. If you can develop this habit, you will continue drinking more water in the fall and winter.Summer Weight Loss Detox and Natural Beauty Remedies and Tips

Dehydration is one of the causes for headaches, migraines, and constipation, all of which can lead to high blood pressure and heart disease, hormones imbalance, PMS symptoms, etc.

One Extra Glass of Water to Drink and 500 calories to Burn the Easy Way

II. Start an easy excercise program. By easy I mean think about some outdoor and indoor activities you might have forgotten you enjoy, like  walking, bike riding, tennis, swimming, hiking or even dancing. If you are extra ambitious, consider camping.

Summer days are long enough, so no excuses for not having time for an excercise program. Eventually it will become your daily routine and will thus be easier to keep up with in winter.

III. Try to reduce high-calorie and high fat foods by replacing them with an abundance of fruits and vegetables that can help with constipation. Eating more plant foods helps with weight loss,  detox, and to cleanse smart. Why? Because all fruits and most vegetables are laxative = rich in fiber. And foods high in fiber is what you need the most if you want to have a healthy digestive system.

Avoiding high calorie and high sugar foods can also relax you, which is very important if you want to feel and look fabulous (remember: stress and nutrition are related and needed for natural fast weight loss)

Tips on How to Read Labels and Find Hidden Sugar

IV. Try to eat more detoxifying food, for example, diuretic foods, such as cherries, pine apple, celery, parsley root, water melon, cucumbers, artichokes, watercress, all of which improve urination.

Hot weather increases sweating and reduces urination, which can lead to water retention, and sometimes to a puffy face or heavy legs. These foods will also help you reduce your blood pressure which is very important for healthy kidneys and heart. Check which fruits and vegetables are from Dirty Dozen List, and why it is better (healthier) to buy them as organic fruits and vegetables for their organic food benefits.

Why Strawberries, Peaches and Cherries Can Be Dangerous for Health

V. Try to spend at least 10 – 15 minutes every day being with and in nature: at the beach, in the park, in the woods, in your back yard watching birds, floating clouds, your favorite flower or a tiny lizard; or maybe doing completely nothing. It will de-stress your mind and relax your body.

Take a Break and Relax with Flowers

VI. Make some homemade beauty remedies using Summer fruits and vegetables that can nourish, moisturize and cleanse your skin.

Let us take advantage of Summer time to get healthier and happier, shall we?

Breathe, smile and be happy.
