Celery Juice Body Benefits

Celery juice may not sound like the most appetizing food to fall in love with, but it is the new wellness food that people, including celebrities, can't get enough of. This trend started on Instagram with wellness channels beginning to promote this celery juice, and all of its benefits from helping with eczema to delivering antioxidants. So this begs the question...should you add celery juice into your spa menu?

The low-calorie juice checks a lot of boxes in terms of delivering vitamins A, K and C, beta carotene, flavonoids, phytonutrients and tons of other nutrients the body needs. However, it goes beyond being low calorie and diet friendly, and it is shown to help prevent chronic diseases, lower blood pressure and minimize oxidative stress, according to Healthline.com.

While this may have started trending in 2018, the research for it can date back to 2015. A study published by NCBI discussed the anti-inflammatory benefits, explaining how it can be used to treat arthritis.

Celery and the Skin

It is fairly well known that celery has anti-inflammatory properties, and it is actually the luteolin and polyacetylenes that provide powerful antioxidant properties and lower inflammatory prostaglandins.1 

A more indirect way that celery juice can actually help the skin is by promoting sleep. Getting enough sleep at night is important for skin care, and celery restores hydration and contains a high amount of magnesium to help clients sleep better at night. 1

Finally, drinking celery juice can actually improve the skin as well by providing anti-aging benefits through vitamin K and vitamin C.1

It is high time we paid the rest of our body as much love as our beloved head and neck. The skin on our bodies need to be exfoliated as regularly as our faces. Our body's skin also needs nourishing and hydrating like our facial skin. Come in and check out our great-smelling body scrubs and hydration products and schedule a body treatment. 

Sun & Skin

More than one million Americans are diagnosed with skin cancer each year.  Many more are diagnosed with pre-cancerous conditions.  These numbers continue to increase, not only in the U.S., but worldwide.  A nice dark tan looks great, but is it healthy?  The notion that sunscreen is an occasional summer-only accessory is still prevalent, yet mistaken.

It’s all About the Eyes

When dealing with skin care it is often focused on the face only. The forehead, cheeks, chin and nose are focal points for breakouts and pigmentation. A forgotten zone may be the delicate eye area.

Premature aging can show up in this area before other areas. The skin on and around the eyes, often referred to as the periocular area, is approximately 10 times thinner than the rest of the face.

How Do We Exfoliate?

The cell renewal factor (CRF) is a natural process that slows down with age.  Babies renew their cells every 14 days, teenagers every 21 to 28 days, middle-age adults every 28-42 days and it takes 42-48 days to renew cells by age 50 or older.  Many things influence our CRF like the environment, lifestyles, medical history, genetics and hygiene.
