Skincare the natural way

Skincare the Natural Way

As the old saying goes, “you are what you eat.” However, in terms of natural skin care diet is a great place to start, but by no means does good skincare stop there. When it comes to natural skincare it is not only about what you eat but also how you care for yourself.

Healthy, glowing skin is a visible indication of good physical health and a balanced diet. If you are looking to improve your skin’s tone and appearance try the following tips to help you look and feel your best.

Fibre

You can be assured of getting the proper amount of fibre in your diet by including at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables in your daily diet. One serving is a medium apple, a half-cup of spinach or a cup of tomato juice. Flaxseed, nuts and beans are all excellent sources of fibre and can be easily incorporated into any diet.

Keep a bottle or glass of distilled water on hand at all times and aim to sip throughout the day. There are several foods, such as lettuce and certain fruits, with high water content that you can use to help boost your water intake. Water bathes your cells and helps to eliminate toxins; it also keeps you hydrated from the inside. The result; beautiful, healthy skin.

Moisturize and protect against the elements.

Just as it is important to care for skin from the inside out it is also important to employ some skincare tips from the outside in. Most importantly, keep your face clean and dry. Wash your face with a mild, non-irritating cleanser at least twice daily and after exercise.

Vitamin C

One of the facts about Vitamin C that we feel is most significant is the role Vitamin C plays in the production of collagen. Collagen is a protein. It is the connective tissue that holds our bodies together and keeps us from falling apart. Collagen is found in your skin, bones, ligaments, tendons, liver, cartilage, bone marrow and blood vessels. Collagen is essential for the repair of our bodies. Without collagen, our bodies don’t heal. And without Vitamin C we don’t make collagen.

A Vitamin C with a special affinity for the skin

The magic nutrient is Ascorbyl Palmitate, which can penetrate skin tissue and stimulate collagen production. This makes Ascorbyl Palmitate a great ingredient for anti-ageing treatments, smoothing wrinkles and fine lines, evening skin tone and protecting skin from free-radical damage. After a few days of use, you may notice your skin feeling much smoother as the coarsening effects of oxidation and pollutants are neutralised. The real beauty is of course that this benefit extends to every cell in your body!
Is beauty from within really true and can it be achieved at any age? Well, finally we can say “Yes”! Unlike cosmetic creams, food supplements are designed to bring health to every cell in your body – and in the case of Radiance C, a beautiful glow to your skin in particular.
