DIY Beauty Recipes Courtesy of Yuve Vegan Nutritional Shakes

Posted by: Jordan

 

Yuve shakes I was recently introduced to Yuve, a vegan nutritional shake that is non-GMO, soy-free,  and dairy-free and made with raw chia seeds and cocoa.  According to their co-founder:

Created by a former Russian dancer, Yuve is a new, convenient, and delicious way to consume all of the essential ingredients the body requires to sustain health, beauty and youthfulness on the go. Moreover, it’s formulated using over 25 all natural ingredients and avoids the sins of its industry entirely. No Artificial Colors. No Artificial Sweeteners. No Artificial Flavors. Whatsoever. Yuve was created less than a year ago and had a big success among its consumers.
On a hurried morning–as they all are now that school has started–earlier this week, I decided to put my sample package in a blender with some almond milk and ice.  It was so delicious, you guys!!!  While drinking my yummy, frothy, healthy shake, I skimmed over all the vitamins, protein (16 grams!), minerals, fiber, and lack of calories and sugar in the shake.  There’s nothing artificial, just an easy way to drink a super healthy breakfast!  Yuve shakes also have beautifying ingredients: “Resveratrol, vitamins, and antioxidants improve your skin, hair and fluid balance” I read on the package.  Sounds pretty good to me.  And tastes great too–trust my 4-year-old, who eagerly helped me enjoy it! (Is it terrible that I tried to drink it as quickly as I could so as not to share it??)  After quickly (selfishly) downing my shake, I ran off to volunteer for Organ Donor Enrollment Day which included a fun (read: terrifying) spin class.  Upon completing a sweaty morning of spinning and trying to get NY’ers to sign up to be organ donors, I realized…I wasn’t counting the minutes until lunchtime like I normally am at 11am.  Yuve, thanks for making my crazy morning that much less like a Cathy comic since I didn’t have the typical mid-morning hangriness due to my typical lacking breakfast.  Interested in trying Yuve for yourself?  Sign up for your free sample on their website.
And now, as promised, the DIY beauty recipes from Yuve!  I can’t wait to try out all of these as the weather cools down and I spend more time at home during my free time.

 

Super Facial Mask with Pomegranate

This mask works for pretty much all types of skin. Easy to make, it moisturizes your skin and leaves it looking and feeling softer. It is important to use Manuka honey and not just a regular honey due to its great antibacterial properties. Also, make sure you use unrefined organic Shea butter. There are lots of different types of Shea butter on the market, but keep in mind that refined and ultra-refined Shea butter will not have the same healing properties as the raw one!
Do NOT use canned pomegranate juice! Only natural pomegranate squeezed juice revitalizes skin by promoting collagen and elastin production. It also reduces the signs of skin aging caused by sun damage and exposure, such as wrinkles and fine lines.  Cacao helps to decrease puffiness in the face and the eye area and brightens skin.  Sounds good, right? Well, simply follow the instructions and enjoy fruitful results!

2 tsp Manuka Honey
1 tsp Raw Shea Butter
1 tsp Fresh-Squeezed Pomegranate Juice
1 tsp Raw Cacao Powder
1 tsp Fresh-Squeezed Apple Juice (use instead of cacao for a more toning effect)

Instructions:

1. Heat up 2 teaspoons of Manuka honey and 1 teaspoon of Shea butter.
2. Add 1 teaspoon of fresh-squeezed pomegranate juice and 1 teaspoon of cacao
3. Cool off the mixture and apply it to the face.
4. Leave it on for 10-15min and then rinse with warm water.

Facial Toning Ice –Cubes Natural Skin Treatment

The benefits of using a facial toner are remarkable. Smaller looking pores, refreshed feeling and the added moisture are just a few of the advantages. But did you know that using a toner also helps prevent ingrown hairs, restores the pH balance, and adds a layer of protection to your face? Toner achieves this by tightening cell gaps and reducing the penetration of impurities and containments in the environment.

Our Facial Toning Ice Cubes mixture is an easy and natural way to gain these benefits and all from the comfort of your kitchen. With only five ingredients you probably already have around your house, you can create a batch of our facial toning ice cubes and use this natural skin treatment first thing in the morning.

Ingredients:
Handful of fresh parsley
2 Cucumbers
4 tbsp Aloe Vera

Directions:

1. Place fresh parsley in a saucepan with water and let water boil.
2. Strain water with parsley and put clear water in a bowl.
3. Place cucumber and kiwi in a juice maker and squeeze juice.

5. Add aloe Vera juice and mix everything.
