break out of your beauty rut

Let’s face it: every now and then, most of us get into a rut with our beauty routine. I’m the worst: I’m always afraid to alter my skin- or hair-care regimens for fear of a breakout or bad hair day (both of which happen anyway, because, well, that’s life!). Working on our annual Best of Natural Beauty Awards for more than a decade has forced me out of my beauty comfort zone. I’ve had the opportunity to sample a range of amazing natural products for skin, hair, and nails. And I’ve discovered many gems in the process, including vitamin-infused serums (my favorite), anti-aging eye creams, and spa-worthy body scrubs. See our roundup of the year’s most exciting beauty brands on p. 25. These innovative products really deliver! The best part about natural…

high-energy liquid collagen: the cure for low energy?

“I HAVE MORE ENERGY!” Jim Caras frequently heard from many of his clients after using his medical-grade liquid collagen. “At first it didn’t make sense,” says Caras, Founder of Health Direct and author of the anti-aging book, How to Completely Reshape Your Body! (one of the first to detail the benefits of collagen 20 years ago). “Collagen is known to enhance beauty, support joints, and firm your body…but energy?" Caras had to know, “Why were people experiencing more energy after taking the liquid collagen peptides in AminoSculpt? …And why weren't they getting the same energy boost when using collagen powders and pills, or other proteins?” His research led to the discovery of a surprising cause behind many people’s fatigue, and the creation of an enhanced “high-energy" collagen to solve it. “PEM” - The Reason…

the keto diet for dogs

After being diagnosed with terminal cancer in 2014, Cali’s life expectancy was six weeks, at most. But along with veterinary treatment, she began eating a keto diet and miraculously recovered. To this day, she is a happy, active, healthy dog. Cali was the first of many shelter dogs treated at the KetoPet Sanctuary, a program run by the nonprofit Epigenix Foundation. What began as a study to test keto in the treatment of terminal dog cancers has become an online resource to help all dogs live longer, healthier lives. Why It Works “Smart dogs eat low-carb,” says Paul Raybauld, president and CEO of Epigenix. “It’s about getting the carbs out because of all the inflammation they cause your dog.” The KetoPet Sanctuary offers a free personalized eating plan for any dog, based on…
