Everyone wants gorgeous, glowing, young-looking skin. Here are a few simple tips to keep your face healthy and beautiful.
Tip #1: Coconut Oil Wash
Skin care products can be extremely pricey and the ingredients are not understood by the average consumer, so you may be unaware of the reactions your skin will have. You may want to consider trying an all natural product, that costs less and is much more beneficial to your skin. Try starting your day by washing your face with organic coconut oil. It may sound absurd, especially if you have oily skin, but try it! It doesn’t matter what skin type you have.
First, rinse your face with warm water or place a warm damp cloth on your face for a minute or two. Since coconut oil tends to solidify in colder temperatures, take about a 1/4 teaspoon of the coconut oil and place it into the palm of your hand. Your body’s warm temperature will immediately begin it to melt. Rub your hands together and lightly message the oil into your face. Next, rinse your face with warm water. At first your face will be oily, but the oil will be absorbed into the pores of your face. You will be amazed on how soft your skin will feel for the entire day.
Tip #2: Natural Exfoliate
If you feel that your face needs to be exfoliated, I have a home remedy — it contains two simple ingredients: organic coconut oil and baking soda. Mix approximately 1 tablespoon of oil and a teaspoon of baking soda. Again, begin by rinsing your face with warm water. Then place a little of the paste into the palm of your hand and use your fingers to gently make little circular motions around your face. Make sure you avoid your eye area to avoid irritation.
Tip #3: Watch What You Eat
What you eat and drink plays a major role in maintaining healthy looking skin. Eating foods that are high in vitamin C on a regular basis is very beneficial to the skin. So eat more fresh fruits and vegetables that contain high amounts of vitamin C on a daily basis. If you can afford it, purchase organic fruits and vegetables. I especially recommend eating anti-oxidant rich foods, like kale. It is a dark green leafy vegetable that’s loaded with vitamin C. The fruits I choose to consume on a daily basis are blueberries and strawberries. Blueberries are loaded with vitamin C.
I also like to start my day by drinking a cold, 16 ounce glass of water with freshly squeezed lemon (vitamin C and good for balancing your body’s alkalinity). Drink lots of water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated.
Tip #4: Smoothie Time!
If you don’t like the idea of eating veggies and fruits daily, then make a smoothie. Each morning I fire up my Nutribullet and make a smoothie that I call my “food of life”. I put kale, spinach, blueberries, strawberries, 1 teaspoon of unpasteurized raw organic apple cider vinegar and 1 scoop of whey protein powder. Instead of water, I use freshly brewed green tea. This one smoothie mixture gives me energy for the rest of the day and nourishes my skin, keeping it soft and healthy.
Use these tips every day (start today!) to give your face a better, smoother, younger and more beautiful appearance. If you are consistent, you may even start to see results in as little as a week.
