Summer is coming, and everybody wants to look good. Our skin is the largest organ and the great protector of our bodies. Let's take good care of it!
You are what you eat.
Excess acid found in foods like cheese, meats, eggs, and sugars can lower your immune resistance and make your skin prone to inflammation. People with acid overload may be more likely to get sunburns, acne, eczema, and premature skin aging.
Healthy skin tip: Avoid acid and raise your pH by eating kale, and broccoli.
To keep your skin looking fabulous all year, try to have a low glycemic diet, rich in fruits, legumes, fish, vegetables, and nuts. Drink plenty of water, stay away from processed foods and soft drinks, and never, ever smoke.
To minimize damage from sun exposure, take anti-oxidants such as vitamins A, C, and E. Selenium and Chokeberry (aronia) capsules.
And don’t forget to include essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and cleansing foods in your diet for beautiful skin year-round, as:
Avocados; Olive Oil; Coconut Oil; Walnuts; Salmon; Berries; White Tea; Artichokes; Brightly colored veggies; Dark Chocolate; Lemon; Ginger; Garlic; Chamomile; Dark leafy greens.
Brown Sugar Honey Scrub
• 3 tbsp. of room temperature organic cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil
• 3 tbsp. of brown sugar
• 3 tbsp. of raw honey
Mix together, rub in circular motions on face, then rinse and moisturize
The anti-microbial properties and enzymes of raw honey, the exfoliating texture of sugar, and the moisturizing fatty acids of olive oil make this a winning natural cleansing scrub for revealing radiant & glowing skin! Enjoy ;)
And remember! Physical activity increases your oxygen intake, circulates nutrients, releases toxins, and reduces stress, but relaxing promotes optimal immune function and contributes to hormonal balance, resulting in fewer breakouts and brighter skin.
So, everything in moderation is the solution for a better health!
