You’ve heard it before: One of the easiest tricks to feel energized and reach your weight loss goals is water, water and more water. Science says just one extraglass per meal can help you consume over 1,000 fewer calories per week! That’s because water is a great way to curb hunger, plus odds are good you’re passing up more caloric beverages like sugary juices.
But plain old H2O could use a little oomph, right? Luckily, infusing that glass of agua with ingredients like fruit, herbs and spices will make a big difference in the flavor department. From strawberry mint to ginger peach, click here for 14 fruit infused water recipes that go so far beyond adding a lemon wedge.

When sunscreen chemicals wash off beach-goers, they bleach coral, stunt its growth, and sometimes kill it outright.
If you’re heading to Hawaii, or any other tropical paradise, to soak up the sun this winter, you might want to leave the sunscreen behind if it contains toxic chemicals.] It sounds counterintuitive after years of being told to slather on sunscreen to protect our skin from dangerous UV rays, but now research is showing that human use of sunscreen could be seriously damaging tropical coral reefs.
Senator Will Espero presented a bill to the state congress on January 20 that would ban sunscreens containing oxybenzone and octinoxate (except under medical prescriptions) in Hawaii. Espero argued that a ban is crucial to maintaining the health of coral reefs – an tourist attraction on which Hawaii relies.
Sunscreens use filters, either chemical or mineral, to block out the sun’s radiation. The chemical filters are most damaging, washing off the skin into the water while swimming, surfing, spearfishing, or even using a beach shower. Researchers have measured oxybenzone in Hawaiian waters at concentrations that are 30 times higher than the level considered safe for corals. According to Hawaii’s Department of Land and Natural Resources:
“[These chemicals] cause deformities in coral larvae (planulae), making them unable to swim, settle out, and form new coral colonies. It also increases the rate at which coral bleaching occurs. This puts coral reef health at risk, and reduces resiliency to climate change.”
Says Craig Downs of Haereticus Environmental Laboratory in Virginia, whose research on stunted coral growth has heavily influenced Espero's bill:
"Oxybenzone -- it kills [coral]. It turns them into zombies if it doesn't kill them outright. It makes them sterile and you do not get coral recruitment."
This problem is not unique to Hawaii. Approximately 80 percent of the corals in the Caribbean Sea have died over the past 40 years. While there are many compounding factors, such as temperature anomalies, overfishing, coral predators, coastal runoffs, and pollution from cruise ships and other vessels that affect coral health, the fact that an estimated 14,000 tons of sunscreen wash off annually into the world’s oceans is a serious matter.

From makeup to skin care; are you choosing the right products to nourish dry winter skin? The freezing winter air brings more than a rosy glow to the cheeks. As temperatures go down, the battle for healthy glowing skin begins. We thought you might be interested in a few key pointers for protecting your winter skin.
- Drink water. Water encourages collagen production throughout your life. This ensures the cohesion, elasticity, and regeneration of skin by also giving it a more radiant glow. We suggest drinking at least the recommended minimum of two liters of water a day.
- Therapeutic baths using sea salt promote relaxation, increase detoxification and skin integrity. Sea salts combined with warm water help opening up the pores and improve skin’s ability to act as a barrier. Natural bath salts may treat certain skin conditions, soothe cramps and muscles aches. We recommend enjoying your bath accompanied by Pure Non-GMO Soy Candle with Essential Oils & Extracts. This is the perfect environment for an ultimate relaxation.
- We all know that moisturizing is an essential part of nurturing ourselves. Since cold air can dry out the skin, why not choose an oil based moisturizer? Jersey Shore Cosmetics offers you a face and hair serum which is rich in olive-derived squalane, vitamin E, hyaluronic acid, calendula extract and CoQ-10. Another important ingredient is the rosehip oil which was used by the ancient Egyptians, Mayans and Native Americans because of its healing properties and the ability to keep the skin smooth and blemish-free. Add a delicate scent of Bulgarian rose to the mix and you’ll get our 100% natural, paraben-free, sulfate-free and vegan Marigold Face & Hair Serum.
- What about dry skin on other parts of your body? Use Jersey Shore Cosmetics Nourishing Body Butter to soothe and nourish the skin on your whole body. Don’t forget to keep your hands soft this season by always carrying a travel size Whole Body Balm with you. This wonder product is a perfectly balanced, certified organic formula which uses the very finest of all natural ingredients including argan oil, castor oil, cocoa butter, jojoba oil, coconut oil, rosemary extract and vitamin E.
- We also have a nourishing Vanilla Bean Hand Cream for revealing softer, younger looking skin. We’ll give you a tip: putting moisturizer on once a day is not enough; apply moisturizer more frequently so the effects would last longer. Applying moisturizer to damp skin retains moisture and allows for added hydration.
- It may seem like only a dream to keep your lips smooth and moisturized in the cold days of winter, but we promise that your dream can become reality if you respect the key to preventing chapped lips by applying our Moisture Rich Hydrating Balms. They nourish, soothes and help to prevent dry chapped skin. If you also want to add a little color, try our Lip & Cheek Rouges which are rich in argan oil, Aloe Vera, vitamin E, CoQ-10 and naturally pigmented with minerals and flowers.
Winter blues bringing you down? Consider a multivitamin supplement. Vitamin C is known to increase the immunity; it also reduces the severity of colds and adds an extra glow to the skin. Since a lot of people experience severe joint pain during this season, an intake of a good amount of Vitamin D enriched foods is very important. Also, don’t forget that vitamin E helps in building healthy skin. This is the main reason we add it in most of our products

Lip Love. A fan of Jersey Shore Cosmetics tells it like it is with our wildly popular Mongongo lip conditioners;
Quality: excellent; this stuff works. The formula is lightweight; not sticky, or too glossy, making it unisex-friendly. I’ve tried all three varieties: Mandarin Green Orange Ginger, Vanilla Coconut Cream, and Blackberry. The scents are light, not overpowering or flavored. Surprisingly, my favorite is the original, Mandarin Green Orange Ginger, which seems to be slightly more effective for me in terms of healing hydration. I say surprisingly because this is not a scent I would normally be drawn to, and to be honest, the brand isn’t one I would’ve ever thought to try. So how did I discover my current favorite lip balm? This is one of those times where beauty boxes come in handy; the Orange lip balm was included in one of my Ipsy bags a while ago. Normally, I would give something like this away since I wasn’t initially drawn to the packaging or the name of the scent, but thankfully I gave it a try…and it was love at first lip smack, reminding me to never judge before I jury. Since then, I’ve purchased all three and plan to restock regularly!
Value: good; available in two sizes and three scents: $10 for 0.15oz, $15 for 0.25oz. On the pricier side of chapsticks, but I appreciate the good ingredients and just one swipe of this stuff lasts a long time on my lips. Even after a single application, my lips were noticeably softer and hydrated. Dry patches easily exfoliated away, and my lips stayed hydrated and healed with repeated use.
Tip: you can find discounted offers through Ipsy or JSC social media from time to time, which I highly recommend taking advantage of since this is a great way to try a few different products at once.
Overall: excellent; this is better than your standard Chapstick, better than Baby Lips, better than Burt’s Bees or EOS…and from my experience on the higher end: better than Jurlique, Tokyo Milk, Jane Iredale, or Jouer just to name a few. Overall, I hope the brand continues to expand the Mongongo line and highly recommend you treat your lips to this formula. (If they can eventually include SPF to yield the same results, that would be perfection!)

Take advantage of this Special Offer!.. To date, Jersey Shore Cosmetics has sold more than 1.4 million units of its Mongongo Organic line. Quattro says, “It’s an aroma with essential oil. … I sat in a room, and I came up with a formula, back and forth – maybe 14 times before I got it where I really wanted it – with my children. You are not going to find that scent [elsewhere]. People have attempted to replicate it, and they haven’t even come close.” Her niche product line is notable not only for its quality, but for its safety in a world in which no cosmetics manufacturers are required to submit their ingredients to the FDA.
