Preparing For Warmer Weather Ahead

Four Healthy Snacks to Add to Your Back to School Stash - social media

This past year has been a whirlwind of events between the current pandemic and life in general. This summer, however, things are starting to fall into a place of “normalcy” and with that comes a sense of relief. I am finally able to enjoy warmer weather and all that, that entails. Sunshine, swimming pools, and cookouts.

First on the list with a group full of kids and warmer weather – sunscreen!

Sunscreen safe for kids

I know sunscreen seems like a common-sense item – however with a winter full of eczema finding the perfect sunscreen for my youngest has been pretty tricky. We came across Noodle & Boo SPF 30 Play Day Mineral Sunscreen. Noodle & Boo is made up of both Titanium Dioxide as well as well as Zinc Oxide – providing optimal skin coverage with up to 40 minutes of water resistance.

Reef Safe Sunscreen

This sunscreen is also paba-free, non-nano, REEF SAFE, and pediatrician tested. Noodle & Boo is a must-have in our outdoor bag because whether we are at the splash pad OR the playground, I know my kid’s skin is covered from harmful UVA & UVB Rays!

Covid Cases may be on a decline in my area due to warmer weather, however, the use of hand sanitizer is not!

While I generally try to stick with “clean” beauty products, I must admit that my guilty pleasure includes Bath and Body Works hand sanitizers! I love to catch them on sale and stock up on the in seasons scents. I keep them in my car, each of my purses, my kid’s backpacks, lunch boxes, etc. However with my daughter’s Celiac diagnosis, I had to look for a safer alternative, and for us, that was Dr. Bronner’s hand sanitizer.

Hand sanitizer to protect against germs

I cannot do this company justice enough with how clean and how many ways there are to use Dr. Bronner’s soaps – but their hand sanitizer gave the right amount of CLEAN scent while also giving me a clean conscious that the items my girls are using are gluten-free and safe for their bodies.

One other way I have prepared for the warmer weather and frequent outings include Once Upon A Farm snack packs!

I have reviewed Once Upon A Farm yogurt packs in the past and if anything, it just ignited our love for this company. I love how clearly labeled everything is and that I can make a purchase of their products knowing that they have chosen the most organic goods when it comes to the recipes they use. Our fridge stays stocked with Once Upon A Farm yogurts but recently we added Dairy Free Smoothies and Overnight Oats!

Organic And Plastic Neutral Makeup

I have been a fan of mineral makeup for over 16 years. I feel good about wearing mineral makeup as it offers a natural makeup look! A few years ago, I had the opportunity to try Inika Organic. I love how lightweight and gentle the makeup is! The colors are so beautiful and customizable. 

Inika Organic is not only organic, but now the world’s first certified Plastic Neutral makeup brand.

It has been a few years since I have tried Inika Organic. I still use the makeup as well! Since then, I have noticed the packaging has changed. I am not too thrilled with the packaging of the foundation and setting powder but since it’s plastic neutral, I cannot complain too much.

Fighting Covid Hair Loss

Have you heard of COVID hair loss? Hair loss after COVID seems to be a real symptom for many.

Are you fighting Covid hair loss?

Fighting Covid Hair Loss
Beauty Brite Disclosure

As the Covid-19 pandemic is continuing to be an ever-present issue all over the world, many are finding there is one side effect that isn’t being spoken about all too often but it affects so many people. That side effect seems to be hair loss. Unfortunately, I am experiencing this all too much myself.

Why is this hair loss from COVID happening?

Hair Hair

In October of 2021, I started feeling unwell and I just figured it was a small cold. Fast forward a few days later when I was extremely sick, I took an at-home Covid test and it instantly turned positive. I had all the symptoms, exhaustion, loss of taste and smell, cough, high fever, and congestion. I was so sick I hardly ate for over a week. After about 2 weeks I started to feel better and finally was on the mend. It wasn’t until about a month later that I really started to notice the hair loss.

One day I was in the shower and combed my fingers through my hair and it started coming out in clumps. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. What is going on and why was this happening. Yes I had dyed my hair in the past but not to the point of having clumps of hair. After talking to several people and reading articles it seems that hair loss is something a lot of people who’s had Covid are dealing with. Hair loss happens when your body is under a mass amount of stress. Such as an extreme sickness or high fever.

Kalavita

What can I do about Covid hair loss?

I have recently found these adorable gummy vitamins by Kalavita. Hair Hair is a great sugar-free vitamin that is perfect to help promote new hair growth and helps restore hair to brighter and stronger glory. These peach-flavored gummies are so cute, shaped just like gummy bears you will want to make them a part of your everyday routine. If you are interested in finding out more about the Hair Hair vitamins be sure to visit their website, Facebook, or Instagram.

Post Covid Haircut

Dealing with the affects of hair loss

I recently chose to take the leap and do a big haircut to get rid of a lot of my damaged hair and give myself the chance to grow new and healthier hair with the use of Kalavita’s Hair Hair gummies. If you have had the Covid virus have you noticed that hair loss is a post-sickness result? What are some tips and tricks that you have found to help regrow your hair?
