What Your Skin Wants You To Eat

Diets loaded with vegetables, beans, cold pressed olive oil and multigrain breads (even better spelt bread)will save your face and organs.

Vitamins A, C, and E and the minerals zinc and selenium will keep wrinkles under control by reducing the amount of potentially damaging free radicals produced by skin cells.

Carotenoids contribute to healthy skin coloring. Eat lots of cantaloupe, apricots, carrots, sweet potatoes, spinach, and fruits and vegetables that have deep green, yellow, orange, and red hues.

Drink water, it moisturizes your skin from the inside out, helping to maintain its elasticity and suppleness. Skip the soda. It’s really very tacky anyway.

What a Lovely Blemish

I have made myself crazy for years searching for a perfect cure all for pimples. Product whore that I am, I’ve burned, dried, killed my skin, wasted money, made an asprin mask,used toothpaste, held my face under ice water, ordered pro activ, made trips to a cranky skin doc and even rubbed urine (my own, of course!) on my face.

This is what works>

  • French Green Clay
  • Neosporin
  • Burt Bee’s Blemish oils
  • Murad Sulfur treatment Gel
  • Hold ice cube on area 2-6 minutes twice a day

  Have a beautiful skin day………get a facial. (if your concerned with cost the Aveda students are amazing!)

  I would love to hear your solutions……….comment if you wish!
