Sophia Bush Shares Her Smile Secrets

May 12, 2015  |  CELEBRITY BUZZ, HEALTH & FITNESS  |  , , , , ,  |  Comments Off on Sophia Bush Shares Her Smile Secrets

It’s no secret that actress Sophia Bush from Chicago PD is one of those natural beauties….even People magazine seems to think so and named her one of the World’s Most Beautiful Women in their latest issue. So it shouldn’t be a surprise to hear she decided to do her photo shoot for the mag WITHOUT MAKEUP!!

image2We heard all about it when she stopped by our west coast studio.  Sophia shared that it’s liberating to not have any makeup on and she actually doesn’t where a lot of makeup in her everyday life. As long as you can rock a bright, white smile…then you’re pretty much always good to go.

Her secret weapon is a Philips Sonicare toothbrush. She got hooked on it years ago when her dentist recommended it and has been obsessed with everything Sonicare ever since. Of course it works!! Just look at those pearly whites.

She also just tried out their Philips Zoom treatment which is only a 45 minute visit to the dentist and when you come out, your teeth are up to eight shades whiter. Just 45 minutes??!! Amazing!

January 29, 2015  |  HEALTH & FITNESS, HOME & FAMILY  |  , , , , , , , , , ,  |  Comments Off on A Checkup with Dr. Katz Keeps Our New Year’s Resolutions In Check

There’s nothing like a visit to your doctor to hold you to that healthy New Year’s resolution. In our case, the doctor’s office was the LifeMinute studio where Dr. Katz was on hand to prescribe tips to stick to those goals to lose weight and get healthy this year.

Dr. KatzSo where do we start? First when you think of calories remember quality over quantity…. the doc says, “If you eat highly nutritious foods, they tend to fill you up and give you valuable fuel of course, as well. But they fill you up and keep you full.”

In tow he had fruits, veggies and our favorite to snack on KIND bars, which really make our calories count, so we don’t have to count calories.

What else? Good fats can be your friend, don’t give up favorite foods: trade up, and don’t go at it alone.

Zumba Craze

Everybody is hooked! Not only are Zumba classes fun, but you’re burning calories and fat at the same time…it’s the ultimate win! So instead of hiding your bod under those big heavy coats and sweaters this Fall/Winter, get yourself a new gym outfit. It will motivate you to continue your workout routine and keep you lookin’ hot all season long.

Disney Makes Brushing Fun Again

Us moms at LifeMinute know all too well the challenges of getting our kids to brush their teeth. But getting them to brush for the recommended 2 minutes by the dentist seems impossible. Megan Meany to the rescue…

MM

She found this amazing app from Oral B that puts your little ones to the test with their Disney Magic Timer App. Basically they have to brush for 2 minutes all while they watch their favorite characters appear before their eyes. It keeps them engaged and gets them to actually brush longer.
