Beautiful skin goes far beyond a face cleansing and moisturizing routine. How about boosting your glow and having your spirits lifted from the inside out.
Eat Your Greens
Get your kale on. Leafy greens like spinach, cabbage, swiss chard and collard greens assist your skin in producing new cells and ridding the old ones. Naturally this cycle helps keep your skin radiant. Organic leafy greens are rocking with vitamins (A, B complex, C, E and K) as well as calcium, potassium,, protein, manganese,magnesium, folate, and iron.
Keep a glass bottle of water in the rooms you sit in the most at home, in your car and in your office. Drinking water is a wonderful way to gently flush toxins, boost your immune system, keep your skin vibrant and lift your energy levels.
Use Natural Oils
Coconut oil is amazing for nourishing and healing your skin and body. It is filled with vitamin E which combats skin-aging free radicals and helps maintain moisture and suppleness. This divine oil also strengthens your immune system as it is packed with antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties. You can even add a tablespoon to your smoothie as it helps keep your organs healthy, assists in preventing candida and boosts digestion.
A good mood boost is always welcome. Grab some dark chocolate (70% cocao) and enjoy. Not only does this superfood help lift your spirits and your immune system, it is packed with antioxidants, gives a helping hand to your heart health and even improves brain function.
Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, and blackberries are a great source of antioxidants for the skin and fiber for the digestive system. Women who have 2 servings a day are more likely to be mentally sharp throughout the day. Add them to your smoothie, breakfast or simply make them an afternoon snack.
