natural skin enhancers

You probably know the basics when it comes to keeping your skin soft and healthy. Increasing your water intake, along with exercise and a balanced diet, can vastly improve your complexion. 

In fact, dermatologists have found that yoga exercises "like Child's Pose, Downward-Facing Dog, and Sun Salutations improve circulation—the boost of oxygen is what gives skin that lovely yoga glow."

These simple rules are the bare basics of attaining healthy skin. What a lot of people don’t know, are the many other skin care routines that help to boost their natural glow. All by using natural ingredients!     

EXFOLIATION

Facial cleansing is something that should be practiced daily. Exfoliation unclogs your pores and rids your skin of blockages that cause blemishes and discolored patches of dry skin. However, exfoliating your face should be handled with more care than anywhere else on your body as it’s more sensitive.

Check out this article by The Dermatology Review that pairs your specific skin type with a variety of nutrient-based facial scrubs. 

Using body scrubs makes it easier to remove the topmost layer of dead skin cells and debris that accumulate over time to reveal the much younger skin underneath. Removing this layer also makes skin care creams more effective in penetrating your more sensitive skin for better results.

We recommend using natural, sugar-based body scrubs. For more information, check out this article by The Huffington Post on the 3 Ways Sugar Is Good for Your Skin.

Brown sugar is softer than granulated sugar, so it’s safe to use on your face or particularly sensitive skin.

Regularly exfoliating is a very important part of a healthy skin care routine. Especially before visiting a tanning booth. Exfoliating before a tanning session helps your tan set longer and ensures a more even skin tone.

ESSENTIAL FATS

A diet that includes essential fatty acids drastically decreases the amount of toxins in your body that cause inflammation and lead to:

·         Fine lines

·         Sagging and Wrinkles

·         Skin Aging/Dryness

·         Blotchiness

Drinking more water is only part of the ultimate skin care routine. Essential fatty acids help retain water and nutrients that nourish our skin. Since we don’t produce fatty acids naturally, it’s vital that we include foods that contain omega 3 (seafood) and omega 6 (nuts) in our diet.

MOISTURIZER

Sometimes one of the biggest obstacles of proper skin care, for both men and women, comes from having too many options to choose from. Confusion over what a certain product is supposed to do for your skin is far too common with the sheer amount of advertisements we’re exposed to every day.

That’s why we prefer to keep things simple.

Moisturizing is the best way to get soft, smooth skin. The surest way to spot quality moisturizer is to look on the label for:

·         Water listed as the 1st ingredient

·         A natural oil listed as the 2nd ingredient
