Red Light Therapy to the Rescue

Here’s how:

  • Stimulates Collagen ProductionSun damage can cause breakdown of collagen in the skin. Collagen is a protein that helps maintain the skin's elasticity and youthful appearance. Red light therapy has been shown to stimulate the production of collagen, which can help improve the texture and firmness of the skin.
  • Reduces InflammationSunburn and prolonged sun exposure can cause inflammation in the skin. Red light therapy has anti-inflammatory properties and can help reduce redness and inflammation associated with sunburn and other skin conditions.
  • Enhances Skin RepairRed light therapy can promote faster healing of damaged skin by increasing blood flow to the affected areas. This improved circulation can help repair damaged tissues and reduce the appearance of sunspots and fine lines.
  • Increases Cellular EnergyRed light therapy is thought to enhance the function of mitochondria, the energy-producing powerhouses within cells. This boost in cellular energy can improve the overall health and function of skin cells, aiding in their repair.
  • Improves Skin Texture Over time, regular red light therapy sessions may lead to improved skin texture, reduced wrinkles, and a more even complexion, which can help mitigate some of the visible signs of sun damage.

The Many Benefits of Mocktails instead of Cocktails

It is more than merely eliminating alcohol. Switching from cocktails to mocktails introduces several health benefits as well. Think about these benefits:

  • Safe HydrationUnlike alcohol, which is a powerful diuretic, mocktails can hydrate your body especially if you use coconut water and sparkling mineral water as your mocktail base.
  • No Hangovers The main two issues contributing to hangovers are dehydration and the toxic effects of alcohol on the body. Additionally, alcohol messes with your sleep quality leaving you feeling groggy in the morning. With a mocktail, you won’t experience any of these issues.
  • Not AddictiveAlcohol triggers an endorphin release to the brain that leads to a sensation of pleasure. Research shows that this process can bring a craving for more alcohol, leading to alcohol abuse and addiction. Cut the alcohol to cut that risk.
  • They’re Safe for EveryoneNo alcohol means anyone can drink them, including pregnant women and children. If you’re chronically ill, a mocktail is a tasty alternative to the real thing and won’t compromise your health further.
  • Disease PreventionAlcohol is a carcinogen that can increase your risk of colon and breast cancers. Drinking too much alcohol can also wreak havoc on your gut and liver health. Switching to healthy mocktails for just a month can improve markers associated with cancer, as well as give your gut and liver a chance to rest and heal.

Mocktails can be a healthier option because they eliminate the empty calories found in alcohol, are more hydrating and are safe for everyone including those with certain medical conditions who cannot drink any alcohol. Purify U’s favorite mocktail maker, Recess, offers several flavors to chose from. Stop by to pick up any of the mood flavors and look for new flavors and cans coming soon.
