Jane Carter Solution - Nourish & Shine

Jane Carter Solution’s Nourish & Shine is a blend of all natural, healthy butters with vitamins and essential oils to nourish hair and replenish dry, parched strands as well as moisturize your face and body!

Ideal for medium to coarse hair textures, the creamy butters melt into strands like a dream, reducing dry, coarse hair without weighing hair down or leaving hair feeling or looking greasy.

The Shea butter based moisturizer is also infused with mango butter and citruses such as lemon, orange and grapefruit to add a rejuvenating scent.  Nourish & Shine is 100% natural and great for your skin too!  You can use it on your face as an all over moisturizer, on dry patchy areas or as an overall moisturizer.  When applied to my face, it gives my skin a fresh, dewy glow!

This creamy moisturizer is great for sealing in moisture and adding shine.  For hair, start with a pea sized amount, rubbing your palms together, the Nourish & Shine will start to dissolve and then apply it directly to your hair, as a finisher.  It's a thick, creamy based texture that turns to an oil on contact.  
For best results, seal in after misting with a water-based hydrator.  A little goes a long way!  For Skin, add generously, anywhere you'd like.  It can be used on dry hands, feet, lips, etc.  I use it all over as a moisturizer a few times a week, especially on my lips!  This product can work for the entire family but a little goes a long way.

Nourish & Shine retails for $22 and can be picked up at your local Target, ULTA, Sally Beauty Supply, select Whole Foods and at www.janecartersolution.com.

Delicious Green Smoothie Recipe

I've been experimenting with smoothies lately and I found a great one from Prevention Magazine that came out great!  Green smoothies may look or sound weird but they can be amazing if you find the right fruit / veggie combination.

This smoothie tastes like delicious fruit, only we're hiding the healthy greens to get plenty of healthy antioxidants, vitamins and minerals you need to get through the day.  This one's great for the entire family, as a meal replacement or just a healthy pick me up!

Green smoothies benefit skin, hair and nails as well as our internal health, cleaning your cells at the cellular level.  Green smoothies also cleanse your body of toxins and can help you loose weight, clear up your skin and make you feel so much better.

Alkalizing foods, such as fruits, vegetables are not only nutrient packed and inherently healthful, but alkaline-promoting foods which are thought to help prevent kidney stones, keep bones and muscles strong, improve heart health and brain function, and lower our risk for chronic diseases such as cancer and diabetes.

Here are some of the ingredient benefits in our health green smoothies.  Avocadoes really hydrate your skin and help to bring back that glow.  Mangos contain carotenoids that help our skin glow as well.  Carotenoids help bring a beautiful rosy glow to dull skin.  Spinach is a superfood that helps remove toxins from our bodies.

Note: Buy Organic and Non GMO as much as possible so you get the full benefit of these ingredients.

If you're looking for an awesome green smoothie -  try this one!  If you don't like one or two ingredients, replace them with something you do like.  I love smoothies especially for summer.  When you add frozen fruit, their so refreshing!  You can change it up and add more or less fruit and veggies and toppings to make it your favorite green smoothie.
