It's not unknown that today's societyHealthyskin is obsessed with looking young and beautiful. You can't even go an hour without hearing or seeing at least one promotion for some type of beauty product. There are a whole range of products available to enhance different parts of the body such as hair, eyes, teeth, feet, hands, etc. Out of all these areas though, it's our skin that is targeted the most because it is our skin that is the most noticed part of our body. When we see another person for the first time it's their skin that in one of the things we notice first, and with that in mind it is no wonder why we want to take such good care of our skin. It's not difficult to get your hands on some kind of skin enhancement product today, especially with all the vast variety of brands offered. There are products to remove acne, reduce wrinkles, cover up blemishes, add lift to the skin, make your skin look younger, hydrate, add color and so much more! Unfortunately, although these products may make your skin look better at the moment many of these products can result in irritation, dehydration, peeling, and acne. So before reaching for the Revlon or Almay first try using these natural skin improvement methods, that are not only good for your skin and your body but have no negative side effects.

  1. Improve your digestion- Many skin disorders such as acne and rosacea are often associated with a bad digestive system. So improve your digestive system by drinking eight glasses of water daily and eating foods rich in fiber.
  2. Invigorate your circulation- An inactive body negatively affects the skin and can cause puffiness, bloating, and acne. Strengthen your circulation by exercising, stretching, doing yoga, walking, running, getting a therapeutic massage, or what ever else you can think of. 
  3. Avoid excess sugar- Most people are unaware of this but excess sugar is a major cause of premature aging. As more and more sugar enters the bloodstream, over time this could result in a process called glycation which reduces elasticity in the skin and causes it to wrinkle and sag.
  4. Eat good fats- Essential fatty acids are needed for your body to function properly. Essential fats make cell membranes, hormones and other body chemicals. They are also believed to keep your hearty healthy, reduce inflammation, and possibly prevent cancer. A few sources that contain essential fats are flaxseed and walnut oil, cold water fish such as salmon and sardines, and fish oil supplements.
  5. Sleep regularly- sleeping regularly gives our body the chance it needs to work on repairing cells.

Our skin has the potential to appear at it's fullest, but in order for it to get there we have to take care of our skin as best as possible. Just throwing on some cover up and lip gloss is not taking care of your skin, it's just making it appear better at the moment when the truth is it is still as damaged as it was when your put on the cover up in the first place. In order to enhance your natural beauty you need natural techniques, and no artificial product can ever be the perfect substitute for the real thing.

Get your beautiful skin by eating 2011

A balanced diet is an essential prescription for healthy and vibrant skin. The good news is that the foods that happen to be good for your skin are also good for your overall health. Many people find that the appearance of aging skin --- wrinkles, thickening, discoloration, and decreased elasticity --- is one of their biggest beauty concerns. While genetics largely determines when your skin starts to show these signs of aging, and the extent to which it shows them, environment damage to your skin, as well as damage you cause yourself through lifestyle choices, can greatly accelerate this process.

Skin damage occurs as a result of oxidation, a chemical process in which unstable molecules called free radicals steal electrons from healthy cells. The most damaging oxidative stressors that we expose ourselves to are smoking and sunlight.

Silicon, known as a beauty mineral, is the second most abundant element on earth, with the first being oxygen. Silicon is an essential mineral that the body requires for robust and flexible joints, strong bones and glowing skin. It is necessary for the diet, as it increases the benefits of vitamin D, calcium and glucosamine.

Skin Deep: Is the Makeup You're Using Harming Your Skin?

Women all over the work use makeup on a daily basis to try and look their best. Most female bathroom and medicine cabinets are filled to the brim with cosmetic products that to the male eye are quite perplexing. You would have thanked your make up several times in your life for supporting you on so many important occasions, for making you a centre of attraction at night clubs, enhancing your beauty, hiding unwanted marks, giving you a new look, for making you emerge as a glamour doll at fashion events, and in some cases "creating miracles."  But have you really given it a thought that make up could be harming your health too? Like every coin has two sides, applying makeup too can have its own pros and cons. However, with little extra care and caution, one can make the best of make up without harming one’s health. 


The average female uses up to 20 different skincare products per day!  Many skin products that women use leave their skin no time to breath, resulting in even more skin problems, which leads them to look for more products to use. Most women, and men too, are not aware that makeup can have negative effects of the skin when taken advantage of. Au naturale is a great way to go, but for those of you who can't leave the house without a that extra confidence booster, make sure you are aware of what you're using.
