Here’s some tips towards your your dream skin

• A healthy diet is the key to glowing skin. Select the food you eat with great care according to your skin type to avoid different skin related issues. Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated. Water helps to clean your body of the toxins and impurities and help you get a glowing skin.

• Avoid spending too much time in direct sunlight as it has UV rays which are harmful to the skin. Theses rays cause blotches and rashes and destroy the texture of your skin, leaving it uneven. So, if you must spend a long time in the sun, take precautionary measures like applying sunscreen and using an umbrella to avoid the harmful rays.

• Avoid going to bed with your make up on, because makeup has chemicals which may ruin your skin if worn overnight. So, take your makeup off with good quality cleansing milk and wash your face thoroughly to remove any residue. You do not want your pores to get clogged. This will leave you with refreshing natural skin and help you avoid acne and pimples.

• Stress is a major element that causes damage to your skin because when you are stressed the hormones produce excessive oil which leads to many skin problems. So, to get glowing skin, say a big “No” to stress and try to support a healthy lifestyle. Get a good night’s sleep; keep yourself relaxed by indulging in activities like swimming, reading, listening to music, etc.

• Exercise is another important activity to promote glowing skin. Indulge in activities like aerobics and cardio to increase the flow of oxygen to the cells of your skin. Exercising is the best way to get rid of dead skin and give your skin a glow.

• Include Vitamin C in your diet to get a flawless and glowing skin. Add a good deal of fruits and vegetable to your diet to get enough vitamin C. By making these slight changes to your lifestyle, you can get youthful, glowing skin.







Why Taking Probiotics is the Key to Great Skin


Are you using creams and products to look younger? What if I said that your body holds the key for making you look and feel youthful? Your body has the capability to use good bacteria (probiotics) to protect itself against the bad ones while staying strong and healthy. Unfortunately, a stressful lifestyle and external toxins destroy probiotics in our bodies.

You can add probiotics to your diet to get healthy and glowing skin. Probiotics help you in the following ways:


• Probiotics help to cleanse your liver. The liver is a major organ as it cleans your blood which must circulate throughout the body. If the blood is clean, it promotes healthy skin and eyes. The probiotics help in the cleaning process and make your skin look fresh and younger.

• Probiotics reduce the desire to consume carbohydrates and alcohols which also leads to obesity. In this way, probiotics help to keep your weight under control.

• Taking probiotics can also help you if you have an acne problem. When you take probiotics, you help your system fight acne and blemishes.

• Probiotics in our gut help in eliminating the toxins that can damage our skin that lead to wrinkles. Probiotics can be used as a key to great skin by reversing the aging process.

• Probiotics help the digestion process. The skin can receive all the antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins needed to stay healthy and glowing.

In short, adding probiotics to your daily diet can provide you with great benefits, and looking beautiful is one of them. There are many delicious foods available which are rich in probiotics. Including them in your diet can help to regulate your hormones and restore the overall balance of your body. Instead of spending so much money on creams and lotions, try to make probiotics a part of your daily routine.





Why Eating Healthy is the Key to Great Skin


A well-balanced and healthy diet is the key to great skin. The natural ingredients present in your diet can provide you with the nutrition to fight against skin problems. It may help to promote the speed of elimination to cleanse the skin and protect it from UV rays to avoid skin pigmentation and blemishes.


Here is a list of foods that can help you obtain healthy skin:


Strawberries: They are rich in vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that helps to keep your skin wrinkle-free and tight, removing the danger of the fine-lines we are so afraid of.


Tomatoes: A good intake of tomatoes in your daily diet can help you stay safe from fine lines and sunburns because they contain an antioxidant that helps with the production of collagen fiber, which prevents drooping.


Apples: The antioxidant present in apples protects the skin against UV rays that cause skin cancer.


Almonds: Eating almonds daily increases vitamin E, which contains antioxidants that help with skin health and provide an added benefit of well-hydrated skin.


Soy: It helps to slow down the process of aging with its ability to prevent wrinkles and helps keep skin sturdy.


Eggs: Two major antioxidants are present in eggs that provide extreme protection against UV damage that may lead to dark spots, blemishes, and, potentially, cancer. It also helps to keep the skin soft due to its hydrating ability.


Walnuts: These nuts contain a powerhouse of healthy fats that provide a lubricating effect to the skin to keep it soft and moist.


Virgin Olive Oil: This oil contains fatty acids that help block UV rays and help keep your skin moisturized.


Whole grains: Adding whole grains to your daily diet can help in renewing your skin and getting that healthy glow.


Adding these foods to your diet and maintaining a healthy lifestyle can help you to attain that glowing, smooth, and firm skin that you have been dreaming about.




Organic Whole Foods Face Masks


To help you with great skin, I am here to share some of the most liberating organic masks that you can make with your favorite fruits and vegetable. Don't just eat the ingredients—use these simple recipes on your face for amazing results.





Moisturizing Strawberry Mask

For making this mask, you will need the following ingredients, which are probably available in your kitchen:

First, mash the strawberries well, and then mix all the ingredients to reach a consistent fluid. Apply this mixture to your face, avoiding the eye area. Sit back and relax for 15 to 20 minutes. Put on some soothing music while you do and avoid looking in the mirror as you might look like a ghost wearing it! But the results will be worth it. Then rinse your face with lukewarm water.


How it works


The strawberries are rich in vitamin C and alpha hydroxyl acids, which provide an exfoliating action on the skin. The use of honey is added so the skin absorbs it and is moisturized. Olive oil is also used to moisturize, and it contains antioxidants, which help to bring a natural glow to your skin. The lavender is used for its relaxing qualities while using this mask.

Rejuvenating Papaya Mask
