  • What You Put ON Your Skin Is Not Enough

    We have all heard the saying, “you are what you eat”. Well, truth be told, what you put on your skin is not enough. It is the entire “sum” of our life that ages us and affects our appearance. From what food you put in your body to what thoughts you think, it shows on your skin.

  • Ask Pharmaca: How Can I Keep My Skin Looking Younger Longer?

    This is a great question—most of us don’t even think about aging skin until it’s upon us! But taking a preventive approach early on can help you retain a healthy, youthful glow for years to come. Healthy habits can certainly be a challenge when late nights and junk food are the norm—but it’s these things that can prematurely age your skin. So start by choosing a healthy lifestyle, then add a simple skin care routine to keep your skin looking young longer.

    The healthy trifecta: Diet, exercise & sleep
    Hippocrates famously said, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” This simple yet profound statement teaches us that food really can serve as the foundation of our health.

    The best thing for a healthy lifestyle is to learn to cook with quality, healthy ingredients that nourish the body with valuable nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Save money on take-out and pizza delivery by cooking simple, healthy meals at home. Invest in a few cookware essentials (aluminum free) and convenient food storage (like these from Lifefactory and U Konserve) to pack leftovers for lunch the next day.
