GoodPop

SweatTheStyle_PopThere is something nostalgic about being a child in the summer heat enjoying your favorite popsicle. As adults it’s still an amazing treat that cools you off and satisfies your sweet tooth! Goodpop makes it very easy to indulge in our fav summertime treat! GoodPops are all-natural frozen pops made with organic ingredients.

These pops were born out of Austin, Texas by Daniel Goetz. Daniel came up with the concept when he was a senior at the University of Texas. He saw the lack of healthy refreshing popsicles and sought out to create a cool treat with all natural ingredients!

GoodPop’s ingredients include fresh fruit, 100% organic, fair trade cane sugar and ZERO artificial flavoring! Now lets get to the flavors… GoodPop currently has six yummy flavors ranging from Coconut Lime to Watermelon Agave, which only has 48 calories so you may able to sneak two of these ;-). This is the perfect Summer 16 mouthwatering treat for adults and kids. Look out for GoodPop as they continue to expand nationwide.

The Benefits of Zinc

AdrianneHo_LaMerNoire_ZincMany of you may already be aware that Zinc is the safest option when it comes to protecting yourself 100% from potentially harmful and cancerous UV rays and is often referred to as the best natural sunscreen ingredient available.

What you may not know are the additional benefits Zinc has to offer in regards to protecting your skin. Zinc does not breakdown in sunlight, it’s not usually absorbed (so it does not disrupt the body’s hormones), is not allergenic and is more effective at blocking UVA rays than non-minerals. While Zinc can protect your skin from damaged tissue and premature aging it can also heal skin conditions such as blemishes, acne, scares, and rashes.

With your skin being your biggest organ, it’s important to ensure it’s properly regenerated and healed once an injury or issue occurs. With all of these benefits Zinc is a healthier alternative to chemical sunblock and an amazing healing attribute to ensuring the wellness of your skin, making it a go-to for the warm seasons.
