5 THINGS THAT ARE KEEPING ME HEALTHY + GLOWING DURING COVID-19

What a time to be alive. Really though, who would of thought the whole entire world would be closed down right now due to a global pandemic? Not I, LOL. Now more than ever, I've really been focusing on what I'm fueling my body with to keep the germs and sickness as far away as possible. I wanted to share 5 things I incorporate in my daily routine that have kept me healthy and thriving during quarantine.





1. COLLAGEN PEPTIDES

Okay, but really, what can't collagen peptides do? Adding this supplement into your daily routine improves your hair, nails, joints, ligaments, gut health and much more! I've been LOVING this Vital Proteins collagen peptides powder. I add the powder to my coffee, smoothies, and favorite desserts! I get the unflavored kind which is perfect to incorporate in pretty much anything!


2. dōTERRA ON GUARD® BEADLETS

These little guys are the real deal. You can take up to two beadlets a day, which support your immune system. Before Coronavirus hit, I would always have these beadlets on hand while I was traveling on a plane. Currently it's hard to keep the beadlets in stock since they are such a hit, however, dōTerra carries On Guard as an essential oil to diffuse, as well as, a touch roller to apply to your skin.


3. HOT TEA WITH LEMON + MANUKA HONEY

Most nights before I go to bed, I love a good mug of hot tea, with squeezed lemon and manuka honey. The lemon kills whatever germs could be in my system, and the manuka honey includes healing antibacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties that can treat various ailments. This is my favorite manuka honey! (Forewarning: Manuka honey is on the pricer side because of it's healing properties; however, a little goes a LONG way.)


4. WATER, WATER, + MORE WATER

I know this sounds so simple, but drinking enough water is super important for overall health. I try to drink a glass of water first thing in the morning before I even eat breakfast. A little tip to get focused and motivated on drinking more water, is to buy a fun new water bottle. I love my Hydro Flask, and it is definitely my favorite to carry along with me all day long.


5. TULA SKINCARE PRODUCTS

I think skin health is just as important as physical health. Right now I am obsessed with my TULA products. I have such dry skin, and have never been able to find a good hydrating cream until now, thanks to TULA. Now is the time to get into a skincare routine, since we all have some extra time in the day. Currently I am using their; Hydrating Day + Night Cream, Blurring + Moisturizing Primer, Purifying Face Cleanser, and Cooling + Brightening Eye Balm. Can't say enough good things about TULA! I'm so excited to try their Daily Sunscreen next!


Let me know how you've been staying healthy!
