6 Simple Steps To Healthy Skin

6 Simple steps to healthy skin

If you are like most folks, then you probably desire radiant looking skin. Healthy, glowing skin is the ideal form of beautiful skin.  Some of us are fortunate enough to have fantastic genes and have great looking skin. While some of us have to put a little work in to maintain a healthy glow.  We can’t control our genes but we can control our environment to a great degree. Proper skin care can go a long way in improving your overall beauty, good health and it can also affect your self-confidence. Here are 6 simple steps to healthy skin:

  1. Cleanse, Tone & Moisturize

Cleanse, tone and moisturize two times a day. Follow these steps once in the morning before you put on makeup and once at night before you go to bed. Choose a cleanser and moisturizer specific to your skin type.

  1. Exfoliation

Exfoliation encourages the sloughing off of dead skin cells, stimulates circulation and blood flow which in turn promotes healthy looking skin.  Wash or rub gently with a granular substance to remove dead cells from the surface of the skin and promote a healthy glow.

  1.  Sunblock, Sunblock, oh did I say Sunblock

Sunblock acts as a protective shield against the harmful UV rays which penetrates the skin each time your skin is exposed to the sun. The sun gives off ultraviolet light that damages the skin and can cause sunburn. Over time, these rays can lead to wrinkles, dark spots, and other problem areas.  Apply a sunblock with a UVA and UVB of at least SPF15.

  1. Drink to beautiful skin

Drinking at least 8 glasses a day will help rid the body and skin of toxins. Water flushes toxins from the body and transports nutrients to where they are needed. Celebrities often claim it’s the secret behind their supple, glowing, always camera-ready skin.

  1. Eat more of what is good for you and less of what is not!

Your skin is the largest organ of your body.  What you eat can affect the health of your skin as well as the rest of your body. To keep your skin in optimal condition, fill your plate with fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and other nutrient-rich foods.

  1. Get some sleep!

Getting adequate sleep is important to give the body and skin time to repair  and rejuvenate itself. When you are tired the blood in your body is not flowing efficiently which normally results in a lack of oxygen in the blood. Your body boosts blood flow to the skin while you sleep, which means you wake to a healthy glow.

Gratitude Looks Good On You


gratitude-0

While visiting family in Chicago I went to a church service.  I was completely  blown away by the message about gratitude.  I couldn’t help to think about how most of us want more out of life.   I immediately thought about how gratitude is a choice.  Wow! we can choose to be grateful.  It may take some work but, we can change our mindset and what a difference a simple change can make in our lives.  It’s never too late to set a goal or to dream.  Nine times out of ten, we don’t realize how much control we have over our future.  We have the power to take control over who we become.  If we don’t, we run the risk of not reaching our full potential. There is no better time than like the present to reinvent yourself.  If you are like most of us we are constantly looking for ways to improve or to reinvent ourselves.

Reinvention –

To remake or make over in a different form

A great place to start in our reinvention process is with gratitude.  Gratitude can help just about any transition in life become so much smoother.  Think about gratitude as a form of self care.

Gratitude –

the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness

Being grateful is available to everyone, it’s free of charge and can be implemented right away.  Here are a five benefits of showing more gratitude:

 

1. You begin to prioritize(What really matters in life becomes more important).  You tend to become less self centered.

2.  More gratitude leads to better relationships (Positivity will draw people to you).

3.  The more thankful you are the easier it is to push through dark moments. Gratitude makes you happier.

4.  Feeling thankful can improve your health, relieve stress, boost your immune system and add more years

to your life.

5. Those that express positive emotions tend to receive an increase in their income. Gratitude makes us more effective at work.

** Tip: The highest form of gratitude that we can have is our gratitude for one another.

3 guiltless reasons to eat dark chocolate

Chocolate

Dark chocolate has beauty benefits?  Not only does it taste good but it’s good for you. You really didn’t have to give me a reason to eat dark chocolate but, ok!  Dark chocolate has flavonoids which are a group of phytochemicals that have antioxidant qualities.  Antioxidants fight free radicals that damage the skin. Dark chocolate is known to contains high levels free radical fighting flavonoids.  Be aware, not all dark chocolate is created equal.  Make sure to look for 65% or higher cocoa content.  The types of benefits that we could potentially gain from the types of flavonoids contained in chocolate are endless. Here are 3 guiltless reasons to eat dark chocolate:
 




1.  Dark chocolate hydrates the skin and protects it from free radical damage.

New York Fashion Week Is Not The Only Reason To Rock A HeadBand

Headbands

Whether it’s lace, metallic, ribbon or leather the headband has once again made a comeback.  Headbands are back in the spotlight!  One of the most wearable trends from New York fashion week to the streets is the headband.   I know what you are thinking “But I am a grown up”.  Headbands are another way to add personality and life to outfits that are otherwise simple.   They add a touch of romance with a little bit spice.  Here are 4 reasons to  rock a headband besides being seen on the streets during New York Fashion Week:

 

1.  Makes it easy to hide flyway’s.

 

2.  Holds down bangs.

 

3.  It keeps the hair out of your face while the rest of your tresses flows.

 

4. They can be worn to dress up any hairdo, updates and changes the look of just about any hairstyle.
