Building UP the BOOB (and your body)

 

 

 I'm thrilled that you joined us! 

You're family, which means...
ROAD TRIP on a very important topic.  

Yes, BOOBS. 

____

Fact: 

  1 in 7 women will be affected by Breast Cancer.

Seat belt on as we  gather some facts and shed light on “Breast Cancer” month.

Get relevant information about how our hormones (imbalance) deeply impact us and to how to implement key pro-active everyday actions raising us above that 1 in 7 bell curve.  

I’ll be focusing on the impact of estrogen, clearing your detox pathways and building back up the body (and the boob).

Let the "girls down" and read on!

DETOXING DETRIMENTS  
Do not fall for this.

With the best of intentions, many fall into impulsive “Detox in a Box” syndrome. This can lead to a short-term unraveling of toxins from the adipose (fat) tissue to only RE-UPTAKE and re-circulate into the bloodstream.  

WHY and HOW Toxins Re-circulate?
There are 3 essential phases of detoxification. If your liver and body do not have the energy to fully transition the toxins OUT - honey, we have a larger issue.

80/20

At BE, I attribute our total health backed by the rul of  “80/20.” rule

80% of our health is determined by our lifestyle & 20% is genetic.

Copy of 2017 (1).png

FACT

Only 5% percent of breast cancers are related to genetics. Addressing estrogen dominance through lifestyle investments is critical in reducing your estradiol levels and the increase of estrogen-related cancer.

 Xeno - what?

Xeno-estrogens raise estrogen through being a "fake mimicker" of our natural production, tricking the body.   They come from plastics, chemical/synthetic beauty products, and GMO-driven food sources.


How Estrogen Feeds the Fire

BE AWARE: SIGNS & Symptoms

Get to know the normal look and feel of your breast to better detect any symptoms...like: 

  • A lump, lumpiness or thickening.

  • Changes to the nipple such as a change in shape, crusting, a sore or an ulcer, redness or a nipple that turns in (becomes inverted).

  • Changes to the skin of the breast such as dimpling of the skin, unusual redness or other color changes.

  • Change in the shape or size of the breast – either an increase or decrease.

  • Unusual discharge from the nipple without squeezing.

  • Swelling or discomfort in the armpit.

  • Persistent, unusual pain not related to your normal monthly cycle, which remains after a menstrual period and occurs in one breast only.

 -So girlfrend.... what goes down, must GO UP! -


Rebuilding YOU

Yes, and the BOOB.

Our Evoq Beauty essentials focus first on BUILDING  the skin and hair at the cellular level ( root ) for longevity.  

Same goes HERE and back to the DETOX in a box.  

While needing to remove toxins from our everyday, we have to focus on building up - what we tear down.

THE KEY NOURISHMENTS

Fortify & Protect - on the daily.  

Calcium D Glucarate

Known to be the best-researched supplements to help with detoxification and reduce estrogen (breast cancer hormone catalyst) uptake.   

Load up on the Cruciferous
Indole 3 Carbinol has been shown to block and chelate excess estrogens and toxins that lead to cancer growth.  Enjoy cruciferous vegetables like kale, broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage.

Selenium’s High Impact on Fighting Cancer

Selenium is able to inhibit cancer and tumors generated by abnormal cellular growth and development by its powerful natural DNA repairing attributes.  

Recommendations for Selenium Consumption

You can find Selenium in brazil nuts, and even better, indulge in marine algae and sea salt-rich in macro and micro minerals.  

Lifestyle Love with EVOQ:

Relief & Relaxation by Soaking in a Sea of Nutrients
Bathing in a sea salt soak rich in selenium {ritual}

Seaweeds stimulate the body's metabolism, which accelerates the body's own detoxification process. These minerals are easily assimilated by our bodies and this is achieved because seawater has a similar composition to our blood plasma.


TAKE ACTION

Exercising your Breast - Lymph, that is.  

Why?  

When the lymph becomes congested, the cells cannot remove their waste and the white blood cells in the lymph and the immune system become stuck.

This can compromise your breast health and the lymph becomes toxic because they are in an area of dense lymph concentration.  

  • Oxygenated Organic Body Oil to Nourish and Revitalize Cellular Health
  • Our EVOQ Beauty food grade curated Healing Breast and Body Oil promotes breast health and provides adequate transdermal absorption of nutrients beneficial to keep the breast area well cared for.
  • Ritual Breast Massage Benefits:
  • A daily massage stimulates lymph circulation and blood circulation.
  • Improved circulation to the surface of the skin helps blood and lymph flow.
  • Massage promotes the production of oxytocin (happy hormone).

In summary, it is critical to remove the daily exposure from everyday toxins and excess estrogens.

Create a piece of mind and enjoy the grace of everyday by engaging on a long walk with your BFF, laugh, get enough sleep, eat your veggies and  love and let down your breasts - on the daily.

Autumn Chinese Principles "to Fall For." Shifting Inner Health & Outer Beauty

Autumn Ancient Chinese Principle to Shift our Inner + Outer Being

 

10.png
In traditional Chinese medicine we recognize that humans, like animals and plants, are affected by seasonal changes.


Anything done to the body has equal consequence for the mind and spirit also. If you feel good physically, you will be more balanced emotionally, mentally and spiritually”

Autumn is a time of establishing a rhythmic order and turning inward.  The softer calm and re-centering energy ground us from a restless mind and body.

As Women, we innately “nest” in the fall as we prepare our hearts and home with comfort foods brimming with sensational scents of garlic, fennel and sustaining broths.


Lungs, Skin & Large Intestine

Fall corresponds to the lungs, skin, and large intestine.  The lungs and large intestine are in charge of digestion and elimination.  Fall is the best time to focus on digestive health by integrating a light cleanse.

 

Full of Inspiration

The fall element consists of metal and is our source of new ideas and is where new emotions take shape, since it’s our inhalation-connection (lung) to the universe.  

Emotionally

“The Large Intestine ‘lets go’ of what is no longer necessary. A healthy balance between the Lung and Large Intestine is demonstrated by a person that can honor commitments, but then let go of a relationship when it is over.”

It’s a time to let go of old ideas, beliefs, and attachments, leaving room for new space to grow and evolve.

10 (1).png


Autumn + Skin Health

Skin is our largest organ, but it is the LAST to receive essential building blocks from your daily food choices.  Essentially the ability to convert the energy and metabolism from inner intestinal track through out the rest of the body - is key.  


oil

Why are Dry Skin + Pesky Breakouts are at their worst during Fall?

Frequent dry spots, skin irritation and ailments like blemishes and psoriasis can be at their worst during Autumn months.

Warm and cool air trap the skin’s cellular turn over, met with the natural shifts biorhythm cause inconsistency and much-needed exfoliation and rich oils to replenish the deep layers of the skin.

Your dry, brittle hair and sun-worshipped skin will thank you for it.

Yin + Yan = Cause + Affect

The inability to eliminate through regular bowel movements or continue to move the lymphatic system (we have more lymph than blood).   

If the Lungs are strong, the skin will be lustrous and firm.

 

10 (2).png

FALL FOODS
Shopping List Love

Add nourishing {yin foods} to your diet to promote body fluid, soothe the lungs and protect you from dryness.

 

Roasted carrots

The taste associated with metal is pungent or spicy.

HIT LIST to GET STARTED:

Wild rice, raw onions, garlic, radish, turnip, kohlrabi, cinnamon, mint, rosemary, scallions, cloves, fennel, anise, dill, mustard greens, horseradish, mustard, basil, nutmeg are considered metal foods.  

 


Restore your skin and spirit with our leading medical aesthetician by integrating seasonal earth clay masks combined with Evoq Signature Skin Care home rituals brimming with rich oils and minerals.  All essential for restoring the root - to dewy, firm and plump skin - irritation free.

The #1 KEY Ingredient to Heal Frizz & Damage (to have & to hold)

hair keratin

There is a fundamental relationship with your hair and essential amino acids.  

When left untreated, it undermines both your hair color and the cuticle integrity.  

But, when nurtured and treated right…. It can be a game changer! 

Don’t go it alone.  

The overwhelm of TOO MUCH OF EVERYTHING is real -- especially when it comes to walking the Sephora or Ulta beauty isles.  

Don’t waste your money on one trick ponies like shine serum based silicones. They actually hover and pull out your hairs natural moisture content.   
It’s really fundamental.

The Long and Short of it.

No matter what texture and type of locks you have --  fuller, youthful and longer lasting color are all part of every woman’s  #HAIRGOALS!

If bodacious, thick and shiny locks do NOT come naturally to you, the right ingredients and strategic salon services can be game-changing.

Get the quick cliff notes on exactly what to do when it comes to creating your most healthy and happy hair relationship. 

Dull. Destroyed. Devitalized.  

Topic at hand?  

PROTEIN.

Are you IN?
Fundamentally, shiny and more youthful hair starts at the root…..”aka” your nutrition and the steak on your plate.

Or OUT..
Shinier locks are also a direct reflection of how harsh, synthetic (silicone cheap cover-ups) or chemical laden your home products are.

Another key catalyst of breakage prone and dull hair is from harsh professional chemical services. (See how we address this below).

Perfect Hair Strand Check.

If you have the following strand checklist covered, then no need to read further.

  • Flexible movement and bounce
  • Vibrant color that shines
  • Concealed split ends
  • Strong
  • Thick and full of body

And If not…..Stop and REFLECT as we DELIVER HOW TO GET IT.

Q:
Does your hairstylist have your best interest in mind (and cuticle)?

Hair cannot repair itself, so we have to put back in what was taken out.  Your hair’s condition is paramount and always comes first.   

At BE, we’ve re-engineered your color and home care essentials to keep your hair healthy, shiny and in top condition.

Traditional Hair Color + Amino Acid Degradation
Aside from toxic chemicals and off-gassing fumes harming our health, the traditional components in hair color such as ammonia (and tricky silent substitutions) severely depletes the hair’s delicate integrity and ability to hold your hair color.   

Color Conditioning Technology at BE
When I pioneered our professional color services at Beauty Ecology over 8 years ago, I sought first to remove deplenishing ammonia and peroxide altogether and replaced it with gentle marine enzymes - keeping your hair free of damage.

What happens when your FIRST LAYER of DEFENCE is compromised?

Net Net:  Your cuticle provides the first layer of defense for your hair.

Strand Anatomy
Your hair is made up of the cuticle (outer layer), cortex (middle layer comprised of protein), and the medulla (the center).

The Mane Appearance to Shine
When undamaged, your cuticles lay flat like tiles on a roof and your hair appears shiny.

On the Flip Side….When in Lack of Keratin
When damaged for too long and deprived of what it needs, it can never fully recover. Double the assault, It loses the capability to hold moisture, resulting in frizzy, dry, brittle hair -- as well as the inability to holding a curl and taking longer to dry.

FAQ - UNFILTERED. 

How does the color work?

When we apply the color mixture to your hair, the alkalinity in the color opens the cuticle layer on your hair surface, and the dye pigments enter into your hair cortex. The alkalinity is also a reactive agent for the oxidation of the dye molecules while the developer provides the oxygenation. Once the dye pigments are oxidized, they expand and fuse with your natural hair structure, and the bond formed is permanent.

 

Why is your ammonia-free formula different from other brands?

While there may be more ammonia-free products, they may contain other harmful ingredients. Our formula uses the finest dye pigments in an ammonia-free and low alkalinity conditioning solution. Our goal is to keep your hair as healthy as possible. In addition to being ammonia-free, our formula is also free of PPD, resorcinol, gluten, phthalates, and chemical preservatives.

 

What is an alkaline agent and what does it do?

Alkalinity and acidity are measured by pH levels. A pH of 7 is neutral, and an alkaline agent has a pH balance above 7. In hair color formulas, alkaline agents are used to open your hair’s cuticle. Ammonia is the alkaline agent in color formulations.

 

Will I get complete coverage with your formula?

We’ll give you 100% full coverage every time - including gray coverage!

 

Is bleach used? Can you do you do highlights without using bleach?

With our formula’s ability to lighten up to five levels, we can replace bleach in over 95% of cases. We can lighten the whole or partial head for highlights, and the enlightener system is fortified with keratin. We’ll use the Vivabond Complex to strengthen and hydrate your hair after high lift applications. Keep in mind that there are some desired results that only bleach can achieve, so we still use “bleach” in some situations.
 

Is your hair color safe for my allergies?

Fortunately, by removing the compound PPD and other harsh ingredients, our color formula is safe if you have chemical sensitivities or allergic reactions. If you are highly sensitive and still concerned, we can do a 48-hour patch test to ensure the color is safe for you to use.

 

What is an allergic reaction?

An allergic reaction is your body’s response to either a harmful or harmless substance. If your body becomes sensitized to a substance, it can become an allergen. Always listen to your body and stop if something doesn’t feel right. You can become sensitized to substances over time, too.

 

Why are some people allergic to hair color?

Allergens can get into your body topically, like hair color. We’re not totally sure why some people react to things that other people don’t. Studies show that an abundance of internal stressors crosslink and cause an allergic response when a combination of toxins and chemicals get built up in your system.

 

Is this color formula Gluten Free?  

Yes! In addition to being gluten-free, our formula is also free of dyes, sulfates, parabens, phthalates, neurotoxins, aluminum compounds, formaldehyde donors, propylene glycol, DEA, and carcinogens.

 

Will coloring my hair damage it?

It’s true that your hair can be damaged by using hair color products that are high in ammonia and MEA and contain few conditioning ingredients. Ammonia can weaken your hair and strip the outer layer of each shaft. Many color formulas are now “ammonia free”. Our color formula has conditioning and the proprietary reparative complex, VivaBond, added in so we ensure your hair is healthier after the service than it was before.

 

I’m just starting to go gray. Is there a way to blend the gray into my natural color?

Yes! We have many strategic ways of coloring and foiling to help you in the transition for blending away gray for beautiful and natural looking results.



You say you have plant enzyme developers versus peroxide?  What does this mean?

We prefer plant enzyme developers because they are a gentler and safer alternative to regular peroxide products. Hydrogen peroxide has been used in hair color for a long time as the reactant agent that delivers the tones into your hair cuticle. Now, we can use plant enzyme developers to naturally accelerate chemical reactions to cut your hair color process time in half. The enzymes nourish, heal, and protect your scalp and hair, so you’ll leave us with soft, shiny, manageable, and luxurious hair.

Our mission at Beauty Ecology has always been to create formulations that are both gentle and effective—removing harsh chemicals and introducing natural elements that preserve the integrity of the hair and scalp. Hair anti-aging at it’s best!

I love my natural hair color. Can you make my natural hair color shinier?

If you’re looking to enhance your natural hair color, we can glaze your hair with a clear gloss to make your hair shinier. We also recommend our restorative hair mask by evoqbeauty to add health and moisture to your locks. We believe in getting to the “root” of the issue.

Is your hair color organic?

No, there is no such thing as organic permanent hair color on the market today. No professional hair color company currently has that certification, even if they put the word ORGANIC in the name of their company or the name of their brand, it is not considered *Organic.

The CLIFF NOTES:

First things first, high-class. 

Free Radicals & Electron Theft

Free radicals are the by-products of oxidative reactions in the body that **take electrons from other molecules to stabilize themselves.**

This causes cell destruction (aka. advanced aging and inner-health decline). 


Our Modern Lifestyle & Oxidative Stress
 

There's  no way around it, so here's how we address it. 

The body's in a constant state of repairing cellular damage.  

Optimal cellular health comes down to addressing the seen and unseen catalysts consisting of environmental pollution, UV/UVB/Infrared,  personal care products laden with harsh chemicals, off-gas from hair color and more.

Everyday excessive oxidative stress result in symptoms like:  

  • skin and hair damage with no return
  • thinning hair
  • accelerated aging
  • infertility
  • anxiety and depression
  • fatigue
  • neurological disorders
  • allergies
  • cancerous activity

 Pro-active topical support is Essential to Restore Cellular Health.

  This is why all Evoq Skin Essentials are formulated with an abundance of antioxidants from the purist extraction methods possible to assure matrix repair for your chance to achieve softer skin and outer glow.

SKIN BARRIER 101

 

"Ok...so these are DECENT ANSWERS, and I'll give you partial credit." 

Great habits, but slightly off-target when it comes to the bottom line.

So what's the the ANSWER?

To "nurture the daylights out of your deepest dermal layers!" 
------
Tell Me. 

Is your product diluted with water as the first ingredient?

Invasive synthetic actives causing irritation by forcing the skin?

Molecularly too large to penetrate for true transformation?


Laying the RULES of FOUNDATION. 

So here's the problem darling.  

Chances are, your natural product purchases are NOT being delivered at the  level where it matters for transformative collagen and elastin regeneration. 

Elements need to be absorbed by the deeper layers of the skin - but this first requires transforming them into a state that your beauty biology can readily recognize.


After the age of 35, the amount and capability of skin lipids decrease significantly, which is why we are more prone to dry skin, wrinkles and sensitivity as we age.

If your skin's fabric structures are plagued with ‘short term’ fillers or synthetic chemicals -- your healthy skin goals desired -- will be stunted.

 Chemicals, water and synthetics makeup ingredients hove over the skin and actually pull out your skin's natural moisture barrier.

To get fit and fresh skin success, let's grab the pieces that build our skin’s dermal health for a strong cellular framework resulting in volumized and dewy skin. 


”LET’S GET OUT OF OUR HEAD AND INTO OUR SKIN.”

YOUR SKIN’S STRUCTURE

When your structure is compromised, you experience symptoms like:

1. Loss of hydration in the deeper layers of your skin which can no longer work.

2. Your skin is damaged and dries out = spots, redness, flaking eczema  and premature aging of the skin.

Setting the STAGE and revealing WHATS BEHIND THE CURTAIN.

ARE YOU GIVING YOUR SKIN WHAT IT NEEDS?


The skin's biome and ecosystem changes through season, hormonal shifts, stress and environmental exposures.

While helpful to know your skin "type," and we help you do just that, we suffer from being able to slow down and be in-sync with our beauty biology's inner ecosystem and natural bio-rhythms.

Setting the Stage - 
Foundation First

Your skin’s outer layer, the stratum corneum, contains cells embedded within what is known as a lipid matrix.

Lipids are natural fats that surround skin cells to protect against water loss from the inside, and bacteria and allergens from the outside.

Dry, sensitive skin occurs when the natural moisture barrier of the stratum corneum becomes disrupted, leading to loss of moisture and penetration of irritants, causing dryness and sensitivity.

  • maintains hydration, firmness, and softness  
     
  • minimizes water loss and is essential for strong, healthy, hydrated skin. performs 3 important functions
     
  • traps water molecules and prevents the passage of water leaking out called Transepidermal Water Loss (leaky bucket) 
     
  • prevents environmental chemicals and biological irritants from entering skin

UNIFYING YOUR BIOLOGY

YOUR BEAUTY ECOSYSTEM.

It’s IN YOUR DNA.

 

The skin’s own ecosystem changes through season, hormonal shifts, stress and environmental exposures.  But are they delivered and well received - at the cell level where it matters for skin health regeneration? 

The Studied Science - What's your rhythm?
Chronobiology studies biological rhythms and is a law of nature that all living things live according to precise rhythms influenced by it’s ecosystem and external time factors such as the day/night cycle.

Aging & Clock Genes
For your skin, these rhythms are orchestrated by the clock genes. These give a tempo to the cell, orchestrating and effecting more than 20 percent of our gene expression.

BIORHYTHMS AND WHAT THEY MEAN FOR YOUR SKIN

 A biorhythm is a 24-hour cycle or pattern that our body undergoes, shifting between day and night -- and our skin responds to these shifts. In today’s age of constant technological access, artificial lighting, and busy schedules that result in dysregulated sleep patterns, chances are, you aren’t even aware of your biorhythms, and they’re probably out of sync.

Daily stressors, the high energy visible (HEV) light emitted by our laptops and cell phones, getting less than 8 hours of sleep, and routines interrupted by travel or a chaotic schedule can all result in your biorhythms becoming “out of whack.”

When that’s the case, your body is not in its optimal state to repair itself, maintain health, and perform its natural functions that maintain a youthful appearance. Skin becomes dehydrated and wrinkles early, while you may experience skin irritation and your skin may lose its elasticity more quickly than can be attributed to aging alone.

How to Increase Digestive Health with Essential Oils

Our health depends not just on what we eat, but on the optimal function of the digestive system to digest, absorb, and assimilate nutrients and efficiently eliminate waste products.

This optimal digestive cascade can only occur in the relaxed “rest and digest” parasympathetic state of the nervous system. When the body is in stress, it drops into the sympathetic fight-or-flight state to flee from danger and shuts down all functions that are not necessary to survival, including the digestive system.

In ideal circumstances, our digestive system is the primary channel for carrying healing nutrients and energy into the body. Unfortunately for many of us, the cumulative damage of processed foods, GMOs, chemically-treated water, environmental toxins, increased stress, and not eating in the parasympathetic state have impeded the optimal function of our digestive systems.

When our digestion is compromised, it’s challenging to assimilate nutrients through the digestive tract. This is one of the reasons that many people continually test low for nutrients like Vitamin D, Vitamin B, Zinc, or Iron, despite frequent supplementation.

But the good news is that even if the front door to healing—the digestive system—is partially blocked or closed, the body does have some back doors to access the system. These backdoors are the sense of smell, known as the olfactory system, and the skin.

Essential oils are uniquely suited to open these backdoors, bypassing a compromised digestive system to offer the healing we’ve been looking for.

Essential oils stimulate the parasympathetic “rest-and-digest” state.

Digestion actually begins with the brain. The smell of food triggers the brain to send signals to the gastrointestinal tract, triggering the parasympathetic digestive cascade. This parasympathetic response is activated by the vagus nerve, one of two extremely long cranial nerves that extend from the brain through every organ of digestion in the abdomen.

It is the vagus nerve that triggers all the parasympathetic responses, including the digestive cascade, which includes:

  •   The mouth releasing saliva to help break down carbohydrates.
  •   The stomach releasing stomach acid to help digest proteins more completely.
  •   The pancreas releasing digestive enzymes.
  •   The gallbladder releasing bile to support fat digestion and detoxification of old hormones.
  •   The small intestine absorbing and assimilating nutrients. The parasympathetic state triggers peristalsis, the muscle contractions that move food and waste through the digestive tract. A lack of motility can lead to microbial imbalances, like IBS, SIBO and candida.
  •  Large intestine relaxing the sphincters for optimal elimination of waste. Inducing the parasympathetic state is a great solution for constipation issues. When we are in stress (sympathetic fight-or-flight state) or just being busy, the heart rate increases, blood pressure increases, respiration quickens, and blood flow is routed toward external muscles to help with flight in the case of an emergency. The blood flows away from internal organs of digestion, which essentially shuts down the digestive process.

Essential oils trigger the parasympathetic response.

 

 

There are several ways to trigger the parasympathetic state during meals, including mindful breathing, sitting in an upright position at the table, and consciously eating in a slow, relaxed way. Unfortunately for many of us, the stresses of life—physiological, emotional, work, family, relationships, environmental—make it challenging to fully relax.

Essential plant oils are uniquely suited to help people relax before meals for many reasons. We know that the brain needs nutrients, circulation, and stimulation. The latter element, stimulation, is the hardest to provide through diet alone. This is where essential oils, with their unique abilities to reach the inner-brain through nasal pathways and stimulate the nerve endings in the skin (which connect to the parasympathetic nervous system) fill a critical void.

How to use essential oils to trigger the parasympathetic state for optimal digestion.

Your skin, your largest organ, is relatively permeable to fat-soluble substances like essential oils. The molecules of essential oils are so small that they can pass through your skin into the capillaries and quickly be absorbed into the bloodstream. One study found that the constituents of topically-applied lavender oil were measurable in the blood within 20 minutes, and stayed in the blood system for up to 90 minutes.

This transdermal channel is the reason nicotine patches, motion-sickness patches, and hormone creams work. The transdermal channel also bypasses the stomach and liver, both of which chemically alter the therapeutic effects of drugs and essential oils.

To receive this benefit for digestion, apply essential oils behind the earlobe on the mastoid bone, where it is most accessible to the surface of the skin.

Essential oils can be miraculous for healing by themselves, but when combined into blends they often emphasize the best characteristics of each single oil. For example, I combine clove oil, which is highly stimulatory and contains high levels of the compound Eugenol, known for impressive health benefits, with lime essential oil, known to have the smallest molecules, allowing it to easily permeate the skin. When combined, these two oils form a powerful remedy that quickly stimulates the nerve endings in the skin and the triggers the vagal nerve to drop us into the optimal “rest and digest” state.

By triggering the shift into parasympathetic state, all downstream digestive function improves optimizing digestion, absorption, and assimilation of nutrients necessary for the healing you’ve been looking for.
