August 22, 2014

As Santevia is heading to the Emmys this year, let’s take a look at everyone’s favourite Friends star Jennifer Aniston. The positively radiant star is no stranger to the Emmys as she was nominated multiple times and won the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series in 2002 for her performance on the hit sitcom.

Jennifer Aniston, at 45, looks just as good today, if not better than her days as Rachel Green. How does she do it? Through healthy living, fitness, and eating well. She is said to be an ardent fan of the alkaline smoothie, made up of fresh, organic vegetables. Beetroot, cucumbers, spinach, garlic, carrots, celery and kale. Read More!

Make Your Skin Glow Brighter Than an Emmy

August 21, 2014

Your skin is an amazing thing. It protects you, grows with you and can heal without so much of a scar. Your skin tells your story: the times you laughed, the days you spent in the sun or the times you fell down but still managed to get back up (albeit with a scar!) But despite spending so much time inside of it, most of us don’t understand our skin at all.

The first thing I asked when I was doing research for this post was “what IS my skin exactly?” Your skin has three major layers which are constantly reproducing (thankfully for klutzes like me). What is truly interesting, however, is how much your skin actually does for you on a daily basis. While most of us base the merit of our skin on its appearance, it isn’t just about a pretty face.  Your skin helps you feel different sensations, maintain your body temperature and even protects you from harmful bacteria.

With the Emmy’s around the corner, we are getting bombarded with photos of beautiful, seemingly flawless celebrities. What we often forget is that underneath those soft camera lenses and professionally applied make-up, they have skin just like the rest of us: imperfect and in need of a little TLC. I’ll be the first to admit, I’ve tried every trick in the book for soft and glowing skin and in the end found that simple worked best. So how do I protect my largest organ in a natural and chemical-free way? I give it water! Read More!

Hollywood Goes Alkaline

August 19, 2014

Hollywood is all about beauty and glamour, so it is not surprising that the alkaline lifestyle has gained popularity with some of Hollywood’s A-listers. However, an alkaline diet does more than just help you lose weight and look good, it prevents diseases and raises your energy levels too!

Lindsey Duncan, a naturopathic doctor with a star-studded list of clients including Demi Moore and Marc Jacobs, says she can spot an acid body across a room. “The hair and the skin are dried out, the skin pores are too large, and everything is starting to age prematurely.” Other signs of being acidic include weight gain, poor digestion, bloating, and tiredness.

An alkaline diet is one that is heavy on fruits and vegetables and light on meat, dairy, sugar, and grains. Our body naturally regulates our blood pH, keeping it at a neutral 7. However, the work that our body does to balance an acidic diet may lead to thinner bones and weaker muscles. So help out your body by switching out processed carbs for fruits and vegetables. Stay away from sugar-laden pop beverages, energy drinks, and instead rehydrate yourself with mineralized alkaline water. Read More!
