Monthly Favorites – August

My favorite products from August

I’m here bringing you my Monthly Favorites from the month of August. As we round out summer I really wanted to get back to feeling my best. So this month I gravitated towards products that grounded me and supported my skin, body, and mind.

  • (1)I mentioned in my June monthly roundup, that I was focusing more on leisurely reading. I wanted to get back into reading, specifically fiction books, as way to escape, engage my mind differently, and put down my phone. Many of my picks have recommendations from you guys on Instagram as well as The Read Heads podcast, which I have been loving. Malibu Rising is one of the hotter reads this summer and it did not disappoint.
  • (2)Higher Dose Infrared Sauna Blanket is one of the best purchases we have made this year. As I learn more about healthy detoxification and supporting my lymphatic system to remove excess toxins, this product continued to pop up. Our apartment is too small for a full sized sauna, but, If we had room for one I would get Sauna Space. But this blanket really does the trick. I have replaced 1-2 of my weekly workouts with this – to make sure I’m not over doing it. I spend about a half hour in it and make sure to shower right after to rinse off everything you just sweat out. Also be sure to drink plenty of water. Skip gatorade add LMNT or Re-Lyte powder to your water for extra electrolytes. Below is a rough outline of my workouts with the Suana Blanket.
    • Mon- Melissa Wood Health or Sculpt Society 20-30 min
    • Tues – Sauna
    • Wed – Melissa Wood Health or Sculpt Society 20-30 min
    • Thurs – Sauna
    • Friday – Melissa Wood Health or Sculpt Society 20-30 min
    • Saturday – Long Walk
    • Sunday Rest
  • Pique Tea Matcha and Vitamin C. After cutting coffee last year, Matcha or Sencha Mint Green tea is my preferred morning drink. The matcha tins are perfect for at home and the individual packets are good for travel. The Vitamin C / Elderberry packets have been great as we start to travel more. The packets support healthy collagen levels, increase Antioxidants, and support your immune system. I LOVE Pique as a brand for so many reasons.
    • They are a company that focuses on health, digestion, gut health, and immunity
    • Triple Toxin Screen for pesticides, heavy metals and toxic mold commonly found in plants.
    • Cold Extraction Technology™ preserves active health compounds at maximum potential.
    • Globally sourced high quality ingredients.
  • (5) My OG face oil. I have been using Living Libations products for 10 years. My sisters introduced the brand to me. Best Skin Ever – Seabuckthorn is a staple. This beauty elixir can be used on the face and body. It’s packed with omega fatty acids, vitamins, lipids, hundreds of bioactive compounds, and a combination of 8 high quality oils.
  • (6) Fresh Mint. It sounds kind of simple, but I have been really into sprucing up my water with fresh mint leaves and lemon. While there may be some minor benefits of those additions its really just something I enjoy because it is so refreshing in this summer heat!

There you have it! My August roundup. I love putting these “monthly favorites” together because it gives me a chance to look back and see what I have been gravitating towards and how I spent my time. I hope you find them helpful too! Be sure to check out June and July favorites!
