Every woman wants her skin to have a fresh-faced youthful glow. Over time, the environment, dietary challenges, aging and even hormones can all work against the goal of glowing skin. Fortunately, there are some simple steps you can take to revitalize your skin into something others will envy.
Truly healthy skin starts from the inside. The U.S. Department of Agriculture recommends a mix of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, grains and oils for optimum health. There are also specific foods that can help with skin’s appearance, such as foods high in vitamin C, which can help protect against cell oxidation. Foods high in Essential Fatty Acids (EFA), such as tuna, can also help if you have dry skin. To ensure you are getting all the nutrients you need, consider taking vitamin supplements specifically formulated to create healthy skin.
Exfoliation and Steaming
To show off healthy skin, you must first remove dead skin cells. While the turning over of dead skin cells is a natural process, you can help your skin along by using a gentle exfoliating scrub. Steam treatments help open pores and rid the skin of toxins that build up from the environment or the use of various cosmetic products. A combination of exfoliating and then steaming can be very effective at treating acne and giving you a clearer, fresher complexion.
Dry skin looks dull and flaky. To bring out the glow, use a light weight moisturizer based on your skin type. We can help you choose the best product for your problem areas. The best time to moisturize is immediately after showering or steaming as pores will be open and moisturizer is absorbed more easily. However, adding a bit of moisture to skin every few hours can help you keep that beautiful radiance all day long.
