Beauty tips for healthy glowing skin
Perhaps you have a momentous event just around the corner, are having a professional photo taken, or want your skin to look it’s best for a new job. Here are some tips that will get you glowing and pay back your skin for all the wonderful things it does for you; like act as a barrier against dirt, germs and harmful toxins. It absorbs energy from the sun converting it to Vitamin D, which is actually a hormone. Then it sweats when you’re over heated removing toxins from within. That’s a lot to ask of your largest organ so why not treat it with the respect it deserves!
Here’s how you can show your skin some love.
Use oil as cleanser
As strange as it may sound oil dissolves oil and is a great pre-cleanser to your regular wash and can even be the only product you need on those no makeup days when it’s mostly dirt and pollution that needs to be removed. There are many ready made versions on the market such as Dermalogica precleanse, Origins clean energy, & Shu Uemura cleansing oils to name a few.
Not all oils are created equal. There’s the good ones that are nourishing and because they’re derived from seeds, kernels, nuts and plants they possess numerous skin benefits that help to restore barrier lipids that can be depleted in harsh environments or from over washing. They’re loaded with antioxidants that protect your skin from the environment. Good ones to look for are grapeseed, olive, sweet almond, jojoba and apricot kernel.
