How to get that body ready for the Beach this Summer... The Healthy Way!

We found that one of the fastest ways to get that glowing skin and fit beach-bod is to really delve deep and develop the discipline to cleanse the body, from the inside out.

Fresh vegetable juices are incredibly rich and highly recommended to detox and rejuvenate, while the process of being on a jucie cleanse helps eliminate waste from the body and boosts the skins radiance. 

The healthy duration for a juice fast is a a recommended 21 days. I just finished a 12 days juice fast though. For my most recent  twelve day vegetable juice cleanse, I used a JUICE EXTRACTOR, not a blender.

Juicing is a great way to detoxify the body and cleanse your digestive system. It can be used to lose weight, remedy ailments, and even cure sicknesses. It takes the very best parts of fruits and vegetables and introduces essential nutrients and vitamins into your body. I found three of the following blends the most exciting:

Energy Mix:                          Radiant Skin Mix:                  Detoxifying Mix:

3 sticks of Celery                     2 Apples                                     6 Lemons 
1 whole Cucumber                  5 Carrots                                     32 ounces of water 
1 Apple                                    3 Beets                                       1/2 ounce cayenne 
1 ounce of spinach                  1 Lemon                                     3 teaspoons of Grade B Maple syrup 
1 ounce of Kale                      1/2 ounce of ginger
1/2 a lemon
1/2 ounce of ginger

If you decide to go on the full 21 day juice fast and cleanse, make sure to:
  •  JUICE, not blend fresh, raw vegetables
  •  Peel the skin off fruits like squash or cucumber because they make have a wax on them if you do not puchase them from a organic, fresh food market
  • Drink juice as soon as it is ready. The juice looses nutrients in oxidation as it sits out. For people on the move that want to pack their juice to go, put juice in a thermos, fill to the brim, let it even overflow a little and then close to carry. This will seal nutrients in thermos and retard oxidation
  • Consume ONLY fresh juices and water the first 8 days, lots of water, plain yogurt, salads and low sodium soups on the next 3 days, and 75% raw vegetables in the last 11 days of the cleanse
  • Throughout the cleanse, make sure to consume at least your body weight in ounces of water. E.g. I weigh 120 pounds, thus I drink a minimum of 120 ounces of water on each day of the juice fast and cleanse

How to Take Care of Your Face

We are discussing easy habits to develop when thinking of ways to improve your skin. Drinking lots of water throughout the day and hydrating, your diet and your lifestyle have a lot to do with your appearance as well. It is important though, to develop a face care routine to improve your skin. Use Yamerra’s Dual Function Natural Facial Serum to embolden your skin to greater heights of radiance.


You can combine the use of Yamerra’s Natural Facial Serum with the recommended routine below to rejuvenate and revive dull and tired skin, clear acne and pimples and restore overall balance to the face:
·   Wash your face twice a day, morning and night, with warm water and a natural cleanser. Gently massage your face with circular motions. Make sure to moisturize, to keep the face supple, and radiant : Buy Yamerra Natural Facial Serum Now
·    Don't pop pimples.  Popping pimples can push infected material further into the skin, leading to more swelling and redness, and even scarring.
·   Keep your applicators/brushes clean if you wear makeup, make sure to keep them covered so dust and dirt don't settle on them.
·   Avoid touching your face with your fingers and wipe your phone clean often. Touching your face can spread the bacteria that cause pores to become inflamed and irritated.
.    ALWAYS Remove your makeup before you go to sleep. If you do not wear make up, make sure just to repeat your morning routine. Include a really rich, hydrating moisturizer to your night-time regimen. It will boost skin restoration. This is especially important, because your skin gets a chance to heal while you sleep. Again we recommend Yamerra’s Natural Facial Serum that acts as a Day wear and Night wear moisturizer, providing dual functionality to the user.
.     Try to purchase a nutrient-rich exfoliating scrub you can use on the face once a week. Yamerra provides Home Sweet Home Shea Scrub, highly recommended. It works on the face to remove dead skin, increase blood flow and preventing breakouts.

Love, Yamerra NYC.
