Breakfast smoothie for healthy skin

A good protein breakfast has everything your body needs to build healthy lean muscles and repair the skin and hair. The skin cells recycle every 28 days meaning the skin sheds and new cells rebuild to protect your body.  The dead skin cells naturally fall off themselves after about 28 days but as we get older, the process slows down and this is why facials and good skin care help to speed up that process to smooth out the skin.

Beautiful glowing skin starts from the inside out. As you can see below, my client Abigail has gorgeous skin and she religiously eats healthy, exercises, and gets regular facials.
In my experience, eating a good high-protein breakfast will save you a trip to the fast food joint! Processed food doesn't give your body the proper nutrition it needs to have energy, alertness and to repair itself. These proteins and nutrients help you put your best foot forward in the workplace. If you're a stay at home mom, the same goes for you.

Love yourself and believe that you deserve to be the best you and it starts with healthy choices in the morning. We are all slowly aging but you have a choice to age gracefully!

Here is my favorite breakfast on the go!

  • One scoop of whey protein powder. My favorite protein powder is Gold Standard vanilla ice cream by Optimum Nutrition because it's low in carbs and fat
  • 5-8 frozen strawberries (frozen strawberries help give the shake that great smoothie consistency and are loaded in antioxidants).
  • 1 serving of 6 oz Chobani greek yogurt
  • 1 cup of 1% or 2% milk and blend in the blender. My favorite milk is Calorie Countdown 2% because it only has 3g of sugar per serving vs 11-13g for regular milk. You can usually find it at Walmart or Winn-Dixie.
  • If you have allergies to strawberries then you can mix and put whatever fruit you want in its place! Make your smoothie custom to what you like and enjoy it!

Chirally Correct - The Cosmedix Difference

Chirally correct skin care! Huh? What's that you ask? And how is this more effective for my skin than traditional skin care?

To be chirally correct is simply a chemistry process that ensures an improvement to the skin at the molecular level which improves the skin's physiology and dramatically decreases the possibility of adverse reactions!

The molecules in chirally correct products and facial treatments such as Correct Peels penetrate the skin without irritation. The product molecules work on skin conditions like smoothing wrinkles (by actually producing collagen) and lifting pigmentation off the face instead of lightening it. The product molecules also slow oil production to correct acne instead of drying your skin out until the point you feel like a snake that needs shedding, but your skin is so oily you can't bear to apply moisturizer.

Believe me when I say I feel your pains with your skin concerns. I can help you through your skin's woes and can recommend the products and treatments to do the work.

Cosmedix's chirally corrected Correct Peels are a new technology of peels that work in harmony with your skin's cell receptors. Traditionally a product or treatment that is not chirally correct would damage healthy tissues by busting through your cell wall creating damage to your cells and causing irritations like redness and excessive burning before the product even starts working on the conditions you were trying to address in the first place! In this case, most of your time would be spent putting on calming cream, staying indoors, and trying to heal the damage from the treatment without receiving a single improvement to the skin.

By switching to a chirally correct skin care line and facial treatments you will see actual changes in your skin's appearance (with minimal down time) for good!

Book a free consultation with me and I'll be honored to provide the right series of chirally corrected products and treatments for your skin!
