Thursday Tips: Healthy Skin

It's always great to take care of your skin from the outside, using cleansers and gently exfoliating daily. But, you must remember that good skin always starts from the inside. If you want an extra boost in your skin's healthy glow and clarity, then definitely drink your recommended amount of water during the day, get plenty of rest, give your skin at least 30 minutes of sunshine a day...and take your vitamins!

Vitamin A helps the production of healthy skin, teeth, hair, bones and a healthy immune system. The added vitamin D helps women especially, for the absorption of calcium, which we need. How can any of us afford not to take our vitamin A every day?

Flax seed Oil is another beauty secret that aids in healthy skin. Shh...don't tell anyone I told you. Of course, flax seed has its added benefits as well. Such as, heart health, digestive health and joint health.

Here are some extra healthy skin tips:

*Wash your face twice a day with a gentle cleanser.
*Don't scrub your face because the skin is sensitive.
*Use a toner without alcohol (try Carol's Daughter toner).
*Moisturize even if you have oily skin! Just use a light-weight moisturizer with NO oil.
*Try to avoid touching your face through out the day, your hands carry many unknown germs. Always use clean hands to touch your face.
*Clean your face of all makeup before going to bed at night. The makeup can seep into your facial pores and cause break outs or excessive oil build up.
*Wash and condition your hair. It actually does affect your skin.

Stay beautiful ladies xoxoxo
