Skin, the body’s largest organ. It’s like a journal that you have kept since birth, its weathered time with you. It has been with you in and out of every season of life and bears the tell-tale signs. There is no wonder why skin has been said to tell a story. It’s no wonder why we can spend hundreds of dollars at a time trying to turn back the hands of time or why we would want to invest in the latest new and improved products. Skin is beautiful and we want to keep it that way.
The truth is, the key to unlocking timeless beauty does not always have to be costly and complicated. On the contrary, it can actually be quite simple. There is no need spending hours reading scientific studies or trying to find the best “it” cream on the market. With a little head knowledge and a few simple ingredients, you could be well on your way to achieving healthy, glowing skin. Below are some of our favorite do it yourself tips that will leave your skin looking radiant.
Salt or sugar scrub: Epsom salt is an excellent exfoliator and as an added bonus it even soothes sore muscles. The mineral is made up of sulfate and magnesium which flush nasty toxins and soothes inflammation, leaving skin remarkably soft. Tip: add half a teaspoon to your daily facial cleanser and gently cleanse face once or twice a week.
Repair with CoQ10: This powerful enzyme neutralizes free radicals and helps cells get the nutrients they need which in turn keeps the body and skin healthy. CoQ10 supplements can help repair damage and improve skin’s appearance.
Hydrate with aloe: Aloe is packed with anti-inflammatory properties and is one of nature’s most powerful aids. Aloe is cool and calming making it an exceptional choice for those with sensitive skin. For a boost of extra hydration, aloe can be combined with coconut or vitamin E oil and added to your favorite moisturizer.
Refresh with fruit acids: Fruit acids allow you to remove dead, unsightly skin cells in the gentlest way. These acids dissolve the dead skin cells without irritating your skin.
Maintain with omegas-3: What regulates moisture and keeps skin soft? Your omegas (essential fatty acids). Avocado and olive oil can be either applied directly to the skin or added directly to the diet.
The beautiful thing about skincare is that there are so many effective, natural alternatives. We just scratched the surface with these five. We invite you to explore, research and see what natural alternatives best suit your needs, we promise it’s worth it.
