I’ve tried almost everything when it comes to health and beauty, and I’ve adopted a few habits over the years that have become absolutely essential to my everyday. Many of you guys tell me that I glow, and I know that these little game-changers have made a massive impact on my health and beauty.
Bone Broth is a miracle food. If you’re looking for a natural tonic for total-body health and beauty, bone broth is it. When I started including bone broth as a regular part of my diet, everything improved – my digestion, my immunity, energy levels, my skin, and my joints. I've even passed the ritual on to my mom who has had 7-level spinal fusion three years ago and she's never felt or looked better.
I use this mineral-rich liquid gold as a base for soups, sauces, and veggies, and I love sipping it straight every morning – usually with a pinch of Jacobson's sea salt, fresh pepper and a pinch of turmeric or Lithe Spice.
Alphaeon & Val Daily skin care systems have been total game changers for me. In just three weeks my fine lines disappeared. Alphaeon smoothes, plumps, and hydrates without a needle or a laser. It's the only product proven to enter the dermis without an injection. It's fragrance-free and not tested on animals. Sold exclusively at Dr. Bucky's.
Cardio-Cheer-Sculpting has transformed my body. I’m stronger, lean, muscularly balanced, more flexible, and less stressed. Movement is my happy place and I love the intense slow sculpting and the empowering high-energy cardio workouts. There's nothing else like it.
Mindfulness is so powerful. I make sure to take a time out every day, and I always feel a million times better because of it. I use the Buddhify app. It's so easy. Just grab your phone; you’ll be a better partner/mom/employee/boss or friend because of it.
Eating Lithe goes far beyond weight loss. Many issues like bloating, fatigue, stress and depression originate in the gut. Eating whole, healthy foods is a game-changer when it comes to boosting your health. Adding superfoods, smoothies, cold-pressed juice, probiotics, and fermented foods (like kimchi and kombucha) keeps me energized and healthy.
Foam Rolling is a part of my everyday because stretching is never enough. I want to feel fluid, and rolling improves circulation, which preps my body for my workout and helps it recover afterward. Foam rolling also assists in breaking up trigger points (knots that limit range of motion), resuming normal blood flow and function to the muscle. Releasing trigger points (knots) helps to reestablish proper movement patterns and pain free movement, and ultimately, enhances performance. By applying pressure to specific points on your body you are able to aid in the recovery of muscles and assist in returning them to normal function. Normal function means your muscles are elastic, healthy, and ready to perform at a moment’s notice.
All Girl Getaways are immensely therapeutic. It's the ultimate re-charge. For me, getting away with girlfriends and hitting the reset button is hands down the best way of getting out of a rut. I return with a renewed sense of energy, purpose and independence. The empowering benefits of a girls getaway is what inspired me to create Lithe Escape. The effects and results are deep-rooted and long-lasting.
