SFB Beauty: Kopari with Me

Posted on: June 13, 2017

Hey there Loves!

I hope you’re all having a great week so far! With the Summer weather in full swing, I wanted to share with you a brand and their products that I’m absolutely loving!

I’ve told you before, I have a huge obsession with coconuts. I also shared all the amazing benefits they have for your overall health and even beauty. If you missed that post you can read all about it here. A few post ago on my Instagram, I shared my newest product obsession with the brand Kopari. Kopari, is a slimmed-down version of the word ‘kopparai’ in Indian it means coconut. Coconut’s are the fruit of all fruits that have the most amazing benefits.

Coconuts are a delicious and nutritious source of fiber, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. It has tons of calcium, potassium, and magnesium, as well as plenty of electrolytes. Coconuts are full of diverse health benefits from protecting against heart diseases to preventing tooth decay! They can also protect against heart disease by increasing good cholesterol and lowering the ratio of bad and good cholesterol. They help treat malnutrition because it is easy to digest and absorb. Coconut’s also have great beauty benefits too.

Coconut oil can make your skin feel and look radiant! Who doesn’t want glowing skin!!? You skin feels smooth, hydrated, supple and moisturized. Coconut oil is made with fatty acids and the good kind that have great overall benefits: Lauric, Capric and Caprylic acids. These are good fats that help keep skin hydrated and super soft. Most importantly, it contains vitamin E , which is loaded with antioxidants to keep skin ageless and protect against dryness. Great anti-aging components that will keep us looking beautiful and youthful. Not only does coconut oil do wonders on your skin but your hair too. Coconut oil can make your hair look and feel soft, luscious, strong, shiny and healthy. Coconuts are full of restorative proteins and vitamin E which help to increase body and shine to your hair.

BEAUTY + HEALTH: COCONUT CRAZE!

Posted on: April 20, 2016

 

Hey Loves, how are you? I hope everyone is having a great week so far!! I can’t complain, the weather is gorgeous in New York City now, and when the weather is on point, it does wonders for my mood and overall well-being. But for today’s post I want to talk about beauty + health. And in addition to my skin care routine and products here is another contributor to aiding in my overall health as well as having radiant skin.

As of late, I’ve been getting asked a lot of questions in regards to my skin. Everyone has been asking and saying that my skin looks FLAWLESS…. I’m my worst critic when it comes to my skin, because it’s come a long way to get to where it is today. But, nonetheless I appreciate the love, even  though I know I have flaws here and there. If you haven’t read my post yet about my day and night time skin care routine, check it out. There you’ll find a list of my MUST HAVE products that I use and that have helped keep my skin hydrated, moisturized and glowing all year round.

As much as I LOVE make- up, my husband calls me a make up junkie. I love trying and testing out new products whether its drugstore or high end, I all about it. But there are times where I love having a bare face. The feeling of wearing no making is truly amazing too. I like to give my skin a break too from all the products and just let it breathe every now and then. So what do I do to get radiant, glowing, healthy, hydrated skin, you ask???? Keep reading and you’ll find out!! 🙂

I’ve preached about this to so many of my friends and family, because there are so many benefits from it. And not just beauty wise but for our overall health. As much as I’m big on beauty + fashion, I’m a huge advocate on staying healthy and leading a healthy life however I can. I mean think about it, I’ve preached about this to so many of my friends and family, because there are so many benefits from it. And not just beauty wise but for our overall health. As much as I’m big on beauty + fashion, I’m a huge advocate on staying healthy and leading a healthy life however I can. I mean think about it, we only have one body, so we might as well treat it right, right..?? Remember health is wealth and I believe in that 100%.  So, I try to eat as best as I can, eating and choosing mostly natural and organic products. I’m big on feeding my husband, myself, family and friends only the healthiest, nutritious and oh so delicious types of foods. Being healthy overall, does wonders on your body and soul. And it goes a long way!

Here’s what I like to incorporate in my cooking, health and more….. I’ve always been a huge fan of coconuts, and my love for coconuts goes way back into my childhood days. I remember when my family and I would visit the motherland– The Philippines and we’d make a pit stops before heading to the province from Manila and my dad would get us all fresh coconuts from a local vendor. Straight from the tree, so organic and refreshing. And since then my love for coconuts has grown over the years. I make sure to stock up the fridge with a few bottles of coconut water for the week. And my all time favorite coconut water is by: Harmless Harvest. All natural and organic, and every time I sip on this water, I remember those days back in the Philippines when I had my first experience with fresh coconut water, straight from the tree to my mouth. You can’t get more fresh and organic than that.

 In addition to drinking coconut water, I also LOVE snacking on raw coconut meat. And I’ve found that not only drinking coconut water but the raw coconut meat provides tremendous health and skin benefits. So, I believe that while drinking coconut water and snacking on the raw coconut meat as well as cooking with coconut oil has contributed in my clear, glowing skin. Below I’ve listed the benefits of Coconuts for our skin and overall health benefits.

Some may not like the taste of coconuts or believe in it’s benefits. The facts and tips speak for themselves. Not only am I a HUGE fan, and love coconuts, I believe in the benefits.  I love using coconut oil for cooking as another healthier alternative as oppose to olive oil. I also use coconut oil for my hair as a hair masque once a week, giving me smooth, shiny and healthier looking hair. The possibilities and perks of coconuts are endless. If you haven’t tried coconut water, ate raw coconut meat, cooked with coconut oil or used it as a hair masque and more I highly recommend you try it. Trust me you WON’T regret it!!
