When you are sitting on the beach reading your favorite book or hiking out in the mountains, it is always important to take care to protect your skin. I shared my top take care to protect your skin. I shared my top Sun Exposure Dos and Dont’s this month to help you enjoy the sun safely.

We all want to look and feel our best to enjoy the summer! In addition to caring for your skin, taking care of your lymphatic system is key to overall health! To help you do that, I provided a powerful five-step Lymphatic Cleanse this month on the blog and my YouTube channel.

Here are some of my Simple | Pure | WholeTM Healthy Favorites for June 2017!

Favorite Product: Dry Brush 

June 2017 #Healthy Favorites: #Strawberries #food #recipe #health #healthy #healthyfood #detox #drybrush #massage #cleanse #lymph www.JenniferWeinbergMD.com

As I discussed this month, the lymphatic system is crucial for overall health, glowing skin and a balanced immune system. One of the most powerful and accessible ways to keep the lymph flowing well is dry brushing.

This self-massage practice involves gently brushing the skin once or twice a day with a gentle but firm brush. It boosts circulation, stimulates the lymphatic system, sweeps away dead skin cells and helps the body detoxify and remove wastes

Simple Pure Whole Solutions

  • Incorporate dry brushing into your daily routine or as part of your Lymphatic Cleanse. Start at your feet and brush upwards toward the heart. Use firm, small, circular strokes thatares gentle yet stimulating. Dedicate a few minutes to this practice to increase circulation and exfoliation.
  • For a vegan product, look for a dry brush made without animal hair (boar, horse, squirrel, badger or horse are commonly used). A 
  • long handle will allow you to reach your entire back more easily. 

Favorite Inspirational Article: The Serious Need for Play

The summer is the perfect time to prioritize play! Science proves that free, imaginative play is crucial for normal emotional, social and cognitive development

Play involves a state of being in which we’re engaged in fun, pleasurable activity. Although play may be perceived as unproductive, immature or trivial in adulthood, play can be beneficial for people of all ages.

When you cultivate a playful spirit, you may find that you can approach tasks in a more relaxed and focused manner and develop more creative and innovative solutions to problems.

Favorite Farmer’s Market Find: Strawberries

June 2017 #Healthy Favorites: #Strawberries #food #recipe #health #healthy #healthyfood www.JenniferWeinbergMD.com

These crimson jems always taste best when locally grown and fresh from the farm!

Strawberries are rich in polyphenols and antioxidants, giving them many health benefits. They also contain a wealth of vitamins and minerals as well as dietary fiber.

Due to this high nutrient content, strawberries have been reported to reduce cardiovascular risk factors such as elevated blood pressure, hyperglycemia, dyslipidemia and inflammation.

Antioxidants and vitamin C in strawberries nourish the skin and help protect it from sun damage. These phytonutrients along with tannins in strawberries can also help sunburned and sun-damaged skin heal and recover. In fact, a single serving of strawberries provides around 150% of the daily requirement of vitamin-C.
