Inside & Out…..
School is back in session, but summer is far from over. Here in Georgia the temperature is still soaring into the 90s without dipping below 70 overnight. You are probably wondering where I am going with this. While I have been craving soup like crazy, we can’t deny that it is still ice cream season. We don’t eat dairy ice cream, but we love a good nut-based ice cream, or even better yet, “nice cream”.
If you haven’t tried banana nice cream, you are in for a real treat. You can eat just about as much nice cream that you would like without feeling any type of guilt. Let’s be honest, there is really nothing better than a guilt free dessert that tastes sinful and indulgent. Not only am I going to give you the recipe for a guilt free, deliciously sinful tasting, dairy free ice cream, I am going to give it to you in a classic chocolate and peanut butter combo that will blow your mind.
Now that I have you drooling over your new favorite dessert, think of this. If you are going to do something nice for the inside of your body, why not think about doing something nice for the outside of your body too! If you are in the metro Atlanta area you are in luck! The Skin So Bare Laser Center will treat you like royalty with their relaxing spa like atmosphere. Whether you are looking for hair removal, skin smoothing, or help with pigmentation, you will be cared for by licensed laser practitioners, or nurse practitioners.
You might think that summer is coming to an end, it is time to cover up, no one will notice, but you will notice. You don’t need to care for yourself for everyone else, you will be looking at yourself more than anyone else. When you are happy with yourself inside, and out, you are just happier over all. And not only will you be able to achieve the beautiful skin that you have always wanted, you can also build up some cash in your Skin So Bare referral account. For every person you refer you will receive $25.00 in your account to use on the treatment of your choice. I can tell you, I am over 40, we do our best to keep ourselves young inside and out, but despite our best efforts time marches on and it is usually over some of the most visible parts of our bodies. Just like eating healthier, and exercising, there is no shame in taking a little help from caring, capable professionals. You would pay for a dietitian or trainer at the gym, why not a laser professional? If you still have questions, you can use their handy dandy Contact Form to get some answers.
Now that you have discovered how to pamper yourself, and keep that little aging monster at a distance, you can get excited about summer, winter, spring, and fall. There isn’t any season that you can’t take on when you take care of yourself. This recipe is so simple that I really don’t have any tips aside from the tip that you should not wait to make this super yummy treat. Allow yourself to indulge in treats, sneak them in on your kids, they will never know. Help yourself live life while getting healthier, and then you can just sit back, relax, and enjoy!
What are you going to do to help keep yourself young?
