Naturally Beautiful Skin Tips Look at beautiful skin through a health perspective and work towards enhancing the glow of your skin by addressing your total body health. Remember that good health is the best way to light up your skin and it is more effective than any commercial skin care product. Follow the beautiful skin tips given below and you will soon have radiant skin that will be the envy of others. * Start an exercise regimen. Cycling, aerobics and jogging are excellent in keeping the skin toned, as they improve the blood circulation. Exercise will boost the health of the entire body and so indirectly head towards healthy and beautiful skin. * Nutrition is a very important factor for getting beautiful skin. This is why it is imperative to have a healthy diet. Proper nutrition will nourish the skin and keep it radiant and fresh. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables and try to cut down on fast foods. * Regularly go for a steam bath. This is the best way to cleanse your skin from inside. The steam opens up the pores of the skin and makes it easier to get rid of dirt and grime. Use honey and essential oils on the skin during the bath to cleanse the skin more effectively, for a better and beautiful you! * Multivitamin supplements are very effective in enhancing the health of the skin. Good herbal supplements can fill up the nutrient deficiency, in case your diet is faulty. If you don’t want to take any supplements, then make sure that your diet regularly consists of plenty of vitamin C rich foods like oranges, lemon, lime and omega 3 and omega 6 rich foods like almonds and sunflower seeds. Also, eat plenty of oily fish like salmon and mackerel. * Don’t over expose your skin to the sun. Use a high SPF sunscreen to protect your skin when out in the sun. Overexposure to the sun is one of the main reasons of untimely aging of the skin. Likewise, during the winter season, use a good quality moisturizing cream to protect the skin from drying. * Excessive drinking and smoking also takes its toll on the skin. Indulging in such habits will only hasten the aging process of the skin and make it look wrinkled. Smoking and drinking contributes to toxin buildup in the skin, making it prone to blemishes and other skin ailments. So, for beautiful skin, cut down on smoking and drinking if not stopping it all together. * Drink plenty of water and juices throughout the day. These will not only keep the skin hydrated, but also eliminate toxins from the body. Water is an excellent detoxifier and the juices will provide plenty of essential nutrition.

Healthy Hair Tips * Salmon is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin B-12 and iron, all of which keep hair lustrous and strong and the scalp well moisturized so hair doesn’t appear dull and dry. * Dark green vegetables (think spinach and broccoli!) are packed with vitamins A and C that help the body produce sebum which is hair’s natural conditioner. Leafy green veggies also contain iron and calcium that strengthen the hair. * Beans are rich in protein and promote healthy hair growth. * Nuts carry many benefits for hair! Brazil nuts contain the mineral Selenium, which helps hair grow thick and shiny. Walnuts are high in alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid that can help keep hair moisturized. Walnuts, as well as cashews, pecans and almonds are all great sources of zinc which can prevent hair loss. * Poultry is a great source of protein. A diet lacking in protein can lead to brittle, weak hair, and in some cases hair loss
How to Use Sea Salt for Skin Care We use various expensive skin care products to improve the health of our skins. But not many of us are aware that the inexpensive table salt. * Use sea salts to help draw toxins out of your skin, leaving you feeling clean and refreshed and your skin feeling soft and supple. Make a paste by combining water and fine grain sea salt and them massage the paste onto your skin before showering. Leave for 1 to 5 minutes and then bathe as usual, rinsing away toxins. This sea salt rub is also fantastic for those with eczema, psoriasis, chicken pox or other skin irritations. * A natural exfoliant, salt can smooth away dry skin and leave you feeling silky and smooth. Make a salt scrub by mixing 1/4 cup of coarse salt to ½ to ¾ cup oil such as almond, sesame or jojoba. Add 20 drops of your favorite essential oils to scent. The mixture should be on the oily side. Scoop out generous handfuls and rub on the bottom of your feet. It's especially nice on the legs just before you shave (rinse it off before you shave though). * Especially helpful for oily or acne prone skin, a simple salt mask can reduce inflammation, balance oil and speed healing from breakouts. Dissolve 1 part salt to 3 parts warm water. Mix with 3 tablespoons of pure raw honey. Gently apply to the face and leave on for 15 minutes. Rinse off with warm water. * Soften tough skin with a moisturizing sea salt scrub. Combine 2 cups of large grain sea salts, 3/4 cups of water and 4 tbsp. of sweet almond oil, storing your scrub in a glass jar with a tight fitting lid. Wet the skin and massage the scrub over your entire body, or on problem dry areas. Rinse the skin with warm water and repeat daily. * Salt crystal deodorants are commercially available in most natural food stores. Salt kills bacteria—bacteria cause odor. It makes sense. If you're a homemade deodorant kind of gal or guy (which is typically baking soda based), add a teaspoon of salt to the mix to help reduce the odor. Warning, ladies: it will sting a little on just shaved pits. * Moisturize, fight wrinkles, combat acne and exfoliate the face with a gentle sea salt facial scrub. Simply combine 1 tbsp. of fine grain sea salts and two or three drops of lavender essential oil and massage gently into your face and neck. Rinse with warm water and then apply a light, oil-free moisturizer.
Drink Your Way To Gorgeous Skin Drink a cup a day, and you will help keep your skin looking healthy and feeling great. You can get tea bags, loose tea, or powder to mix with water if you don’t like it as a hot drink. * When you’re at home, make sure there’s a glass of water beside you whenever you’re watching TV, reading or relaxing. If the water is there, you’ll be reminded to it drink more often. When you go out, take a bottle of water with you. Make sure you drink it all before you get home. It’s a small effort to make for great results! * It’s obvious, but you’d be surprised to learn how many people don’t drink enough water! This is a highly effective and free way of keeping your skin looking clear and healthy. I know that a can of coke or a glass of wine is often far more appealing than water, but go for the clear stuff (not vodka) and your skin will thank you. Try to drink four pints of water a day. This will cleanse all the toxins in your body, and you’ll quickly realise how much healthier you feel. * If like me, you prefer something sweeter, try chamomile tea. It completely relaxes the body and the tea bags are incredibly effective as an acne treatment. Once you’ve made your tea, leave the tea bag to cool and then apply it on the affected area for about 10 minutes. * As it is a natural anti-inflammatory it reduces swelling and redness extremely quickly. Organic tea bags are probably best for this, as they will have no additives that could irritate the skin. * Aloe Vera is brilliant as it’s rich in minerals, vitamins and amino acids. It’s all good stuff for your skin and body. You can buy the juice by the jug full, and there are a number of different sizes. I’d recommend you buy a small one to try it out first, as this suggestion is a bit more expensive. You should feel the benefits inside and out. Aloe Vera gel is great to treat sore patches of skin and burns.
