Tips For Better Skin
Beauty Expert Kee Kee
- Studies show that eating a low-glycemic diet can help improve your skin's health and appearance. Stay away from processed foods and refined sugars. Eat lots of vitamin-rich vegetables and fresh fish to promote your skin health. Foods rich in vitamins A and C, like blueberries and cherries, which help normalize oil levels in your skin. And antioxidants neutralize free radicals.
- Exercising can be great for exfoliating your skin, but just make sure to wash your body within one to three hours after a workout in order to rid your pores of excess dead skin, sweat and oil. When we exercise, the tiny arteries in our skin open up, allowing more blood to reach the skin's surface and deliver nutrients that repair damage from the sun and environmental pollutants.
- Red wines, particularly organic red wines, are packed with antioxidants. They help fight free radicals and aging by restoring collagen and elastic fibers. Thus, it plumps out the wrinkles and gives a boost to sagging skin
- Chocolate contains a wealth of antioxidants. It contains catechins like those found in green tea, and it's the greatest food source of procyanidins compounds that counter skin damage!
- Sleep is very important, not only for your skin, but also so your body can repair itself as you rest.
- Oxygen Facials and Products are a highly desired treatment of choice in the US and internationally. Celebrities in the news using Oxygen products include Kate Middleton, (next Queen of England), Madonna, Halle Berry, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and many more. As a result, the benefits of Oxygen are filtering to the public through beauty editors, fashion magazines, as well as beauty and mom bloggers, all of whom are recommending the use of Oxygen products.
- Benzoyl Peroxide dries out the skin, and can cause a rebound effect from the dryness, which in turn can create more acne.
- Aloe is a great treatment for acne. Aloe contains anti-inflammatory benefits, anti-oxidant benefits, and a variety of other health benefits taken both internally and externally. For acne, aloe can soothe redness and reduce overall inflammation of pimples. In a recent study, individuals who used aloe in addition to standard dressing for acne healed faster.
- Pillowcases can house dirt and oil. Like anything else that transfers dirt and oil to your skin, pillowcases can be the cause of acne. When your pillowcase isn't laundered or changed regularly, a build-up of dirt and oil from the environment as well as your skin and hair touching the pillow is transferred back to your skin. This can clog pores and cause blemishes.
- Cuddling is great for your skin! The effect is believed to put our skin in a more balanced state and do the same with the entire nervous system.
- Wash the Cell Phone.Just think about all the germy encounters your cell phone has each day! Holding your cell phone against your cheek for extended periods of time can trap oils and dirt into your pores, causing breakouts. Some people hold cell phones to their faces and talk for a long period of time, perspiring onto the phone and blocking the pores. So limit your call times, clean your phone regularly, wash your hands and face every day, and try using a headset to limit the frequency of breakouts.
- Dirty makeup brushes can transfer germs and bacteria to your skin, causing breakouts. Many professionals suggest washing your brushes every few weeks. Instead of using plain soap or baby shampoo, try using a squirt of Facial Cleanser. It's antibacterial and won't dry out the bristles. And you know it won't irritate your skin!
