G e t t i n g F r e s h • july 2018 • [ 67 ] From New York Fashion Week to the American Country Music (ACM) Awards, FarmHouse Fresh has been showing up at its fair share of high-profi le places. This past April, the brand sponsored the Adam Zohar Bridal Show's makeup team, prepping models with FarmHouse Fresh serums, moisturizers, body oil and lip balm. FarmHouse Fresh products were also used to help Reba McEntire achieve dewy skin for her gig as ACM Awards host. Celebrity makeup artist Brett Freedman ensured the country music star's skin was fi rm and glowing with products including the brand's Mighty Tighty Mask the night before, as well as Three Milk Moisturizer, Crow Catcher Serum and Agave Nectar Body Oil on the big day. Getting Fresh H E A L I N G N E W S Three cheers for chocolate! It's been well established that the fl avonoids found in cacao are powerful antioxidants and anti-infl ammatory agents that can benefi t the brain and the heart. Now, two studies suggest that consuming dark chocolate with a high concentration of cacao (minimally 70 percent cacao, 30 percent organic cane sugar) reduces stress and infl ammation, while improving memory, immunity and mood. "For years, we've looked at the infl uence of dark chocolate on neurological functions from the standpoint of sugar content—the more sugar, the happier we are," says Lee S. Berk, DrPH, associate dean and professor of Allied Health Studies at Loma Linda University in California, who served as principal investigator on both studies. "But this is the fi rst time we've looked at the impact of large amounts of cacao in doses as small as a regular-sized chocolate bar in humans over short or long periods of time, and we are encouraged by the fi ndings." u Sweet Relief TOP: COURTESY FARMHOUSE FRESH; BOTTOM: © GETTY IMAGES
