Janey Loves Natural anti ageing skincare from Inlight

At last a brilliant organic brand formulated by the wonderful Dr Mariano Spiezia, Mariano and his wife Loredana have created something very special with this range.

This is a naturopathic doctor who really knows about skin, Inlight have a great range of products that have no contraindications with homeopathic remedies and I’m a big fan of their deep cleansing salve and their facial oil is wonderful but lets focus just for a second on anti-aging, something very relevant to all of us !.

The appearance of wrinkles is linked on one hand to the how we move our face, its literally connected to emotions and psychological factors, but on the other hand its linked to the natural ageing process influenced by many life style factors (food, sun exposure, smog, pollution, lack of sleep etc.) .  We can’t stop the ageing process of course but it  can be “controlled” or “slowed down” by having a correct life style and correct diet, rich in vitamins, antioxidants and vital nutritional factors. To keep away wrinkles you also need a cosmetic routine based on moisturising oils rich in antioxidants, Vitamin E, essential fatty acids, chlorophyll and enzymes.
Mariano and his wife Loredana have created something very special with this range.
I'm a very big fan of facial ols, particularly olive oil, jojoba oil, rose hip oil, all rich in Vitamin E and EFA, protect, soften and moisturise the skin reducing the evaporation of the “internal water “, and have an antioxidant and protective action against UV rays. Many are the herbs available in Nature that encourage production of collagen together with astringent and anti-ageing properties.   However wrinkles don’t miraculously disappear if covered up (sadly) , they need to be “treated” and not even moisturising is enough to keep them at bay.  The skin needs to be well nourished and well fed in order to keep young and healthy. This is why a beauty daily regime full of antioxidants is essential.
Inlight suggest you get started with:their

INLIGHT organic skincare anti-ageing Trio -

Janey Loves the Nutri-sqEase Max Juicer from Wholistic Research

One of my favourite online stores is the Wholistic Research company, they sell a huge range of products and always seem to be at the cutting edge of whats new in water filters, ionisers, sprouting kits, light boxes, emf protection et al plus of course juicers and blenders, well imagine my delight when they told me about the Nutrisqueese max

You know I’m a huge fan of juicing, and of course we all know that in an ideal world we’d all use masticating ‘slow juicers’ but the problem is I’m time poor and I’m making juice every morning for 6 of us before rushing out to get the kids to school so I’ve always made do with a fairly basic whole fruit centrifugal juicer, with a high rpm speed which I know isn’t the best for health, but at last there is a new revolution in juicers !

The Nutri-SquEASE Max Slow Juicer is a masticating juice extractor that uses the new patented Low Speed Technology System (LSTS). It is called a “Slow Juicer” because it operates at only 85 RPM and uses a mere 150 Watts of energy, instead of 6,000 to 24,000 RPM and up to 1,500 Watts of energy like a typical centrifugal “High Speed” juicer.

But don’t let the name fool you, this Slow Juicer actually juices faster than most centrifugal juicers and expels much drier pulp with a much higher yield of juice that doesn't seperate, so you're left with drier pulp and less to need to throw away.

Its a lower RPM but interestingly it juices faster than many high RPM juicers.    Its nice and small so doesn't take up too much workspace and to make sure the flavour of one juice doesn't taint the next, you can just pour water through it between juices.   Best of all this machine makes richer juice, it keep its original colour and doesn't oxidise as quickly, most importantly you've got the maximim nutrients and you can really taste the difference.

This versatile machine also makes fab ice creams and you can buy a nut milk bag and make your own healthy nut milks too.

Really great value and a special offer right now at
