Feb is Heart Month - Island Thyme Soap Company

Did you know?

Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women. Cardiovascular diseases, which includes stroke, claim the lives of about one woman every 80 seconds! Yet 80 percent of cardiovascular diseases may be preventable with education and action.

The biggest part of living healthy comes down to simply making healthy choices. While you can’t change things like age and family history, the good news is that even modest changes to your diet and lifestyle can improve your heart health and lower your risk.

The American Heart Association has some great tips, recipes, videos and hacks for taking charge of your heart health for good!

Eat Smart

Eating healthy doesn’t have to mean dieting or giving up all the foods you love. Learn how to ditch the junk, give your body the nutrient-dense fuel it needs, and love every minute of it!

Add Color

An easy first step to eating healthy is to include fruits and vegetables at every meal and snack. All forms (fresh, frozen, canned and dried) and all colors count, so go ahead and add color to your plate – and your life.

Move More

A good starting goal is at least 150 minutes a week, but if you don’t want to sweat the numbers, just move more! Find forms of exercise you like and will stick with, and build more opportunities to be active into your routine.

Be Well

Along with eating right and being active, real health includes getting enough sleep, practicing mindfulness, managing stress, keeping mind and body fit, connecting socially, and more.

Skincare Routines Must Change With The Seasons

The skin is the barrier between the internal and external world and as much as they may wish summer wouldn't end so soon, for most people reading this, it’s just not summertime anymore. September also means it's time to transition away from summer skincare routines. Temperatures may vary greatly from one day to the next, It can be hot, humid during the day and cooler and dryer at night. The water in the air affects the balance of water (hydration) in the skin. A humid climate can soften skin and make it easy to maintain fullness, but a dryer climate can dehydrate the skin, making more likely to show fine lines and wrinkles.
