Second Segment: Questions from Listeners
16:23 – 22:15

Question #1

Leslie asks, “Hi Janet and Emily – This winter my lips have been extremely chapped and every lip chap I have tried doesn’t seem to work! The skin on the rest of my body hasn’t been affected so I don’t think it is diet related. Any tips or recommendations?!”

Emily Says:

  • You can look at tissue salts to help with your chapped lips
  • It’ll help with hydration imbalances
  • A lack of B vitamins can also be why you have chapped lips – Try a vitamin B complex

Janet says:

  • Coconut oil and shea butter are good to put on your chapped lips because there’s no irritants in either of them
  • Evening primrose oil may also help!

Question #2

Clarice asks, “Hi ladies! I have always been curious if cold pressed green juice actually has any health benefits (besides it being a serving of fruit and vegetables) or is this just a food trend that the millennials love? Thanks!”

Janet Says:

  • A green juice should be providing you with the nutrients from your green vegetables
  • Liquid Plumber by Live Raw Organic is a great green juice
  • Some juices are green, but aren’t great for you

Emily Says:

  • Green juices with greens and lemon/ginger are the best for you
  • Stay away from one’s with fruit juice, because they are mostly fruit juice with a touch of greens
  • Not just a trend – try finding a good green juice you like!
