The aesthetic is clean and hip with just enough earthiness in its design to depict the pureness that Cold & Thirsty blends, freezes and dishes out each and every day. You can get a super cool cryotherapy experience to knock off a bit of time from your skin, boost collagen, deflate inflammation and seriously stave off the extended summer heat we Angeleno’s are coping with currently! Only a couple of months old now, Cold & Thirsty, the first of its kind to combine a 100% organic, locally sourced, cold-pressed juice bar and a cryosauna in one sweet little location, is a hit on Washington Blvd!

Co-founders Brooke Rewa and Katie Kauffman developed a profound interest and passion for holistic whole body wellness from the inside out after both dealing with health issues in their own lives. So, they have a profound understanding of why paying attention to what we put into and how we treat our bodies is so incredibly vital to living a full and vibrant life. What they give to their customers comes straight from their hearts and creative minds.

Not too long ago, Melissa Curtin (co-founder of LaLaScoop) previewed the spot and experienced Katie’s cryosauna therapy first hand, and absolutely loved it. Although my aching ligaments and joints could have benefited from the frigid cold liquid nitrogen chamber, I passed for the time being, and rather focused my attention to Brooke’s new superfood (and divine, I might add) MylkShakes, her Renew 3, 5 and 7 day juice cleanse series, as well as special guest Fruits to the Roots organic, non-GMO, pure herbal and botanical masks at their Beauty Cleanse Preview Party on October 22nd.

I first became familiar with Mylk at Blue Bottle Coffee on Abbot Kinney. I was ready to cop a taste of espresso after going cold turkey for months and figured if I was going to do it, I’d “cheat” where my drink would be amazing, pure and artfully crafted. Mylk is an incredible sprouted almond milk, free of the crazy additives you can’t help but find in every other option at the store. Mylk has become a local favorite. And now, to top it off, Brooke has created a collection of Mylkshakes that are light textural blends that combine an assortment of lovely ingredients: Tumeric Almond, Cocao Gogi, Green Maca, Pistachio Mint. All four are amazing, but I have to say the Pistachio Mint is my TopFav!

Any cleanse is tough for me, but the life saver in my opinion was the Honey Vanilla Mylk (which provides vitamin E to protect skin from sun damage, healthy fats and protein and also anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties) and the Green Maca Mylkshake (which balances hormones, hydrates, fights acne, destroys free-radicals, promotes growth of new skin cells, improves skin tone, and provides a source of protein). Both gave a tasty bit of heartiness to my liquid gastro experience and gave my body so much of what it needs. My favorite Renew juice of the day was the second in the line up, Radiant Skin, because it was sweet and balanced. This berry rich concoction brightens skin tone, helps heal acne, scars and discoloration, boosts collagen productions, aids in digestion, and promotes weight loss. Who doesn’t want all of that? (Check out the full cleanse deets below).

Over the years I have put in a concerted effort to use only natural products on my hair and skin. And I have found a couple of products that my body has responded to very well and become loyal to. In fact, I recently read an article that claimed the idea that hair and skin products hit a plateau when you use them is actually false. What is happening, the author said, is that your hair and skin overload on processed and unnatural additives. Your body in essence finally has enough. But, when you use nothing but natural ingredients, your body says and continues to say, “aaaaaaahh…”

Here, instate Fruits to the Roots, co-created by Lauren Dodge, a beautiful young lady who is dedicated to creating all-natural botanical products by her skilled and loving hands. I’ve spent just about a week using her incredibly rich and refreshing Glowing Antiaging Feed Your Face Mask on back to back days, along with a few drops of smoothing rehydrating oil thereafter. In just a week, I am seeing evidence of an emerging even glow in my skin that I wasn’t sure I could ever get back. I am ready to indulge in the whole product line to see if I can get back even more of that youthful, even, supple skin, just like Lauren’s.

Pencil it in to take a short or long trip to Cold & Thirsty in Culver City and get ready to indulge your whole body in healthy concoctions and experiences that will promote wellness from the inside out!
