I know, from personal experiences when I was a teenager and still learning about all this beauty – that make-up, especially, DOES NOT go well on skin that is not taken well care of.
Whether you are dry, oily, combination or whatever – if you do not take good care of your skin, then it will show through other beauty regimes that you do (make-up, tanning, hair removal etc).

1. Detoxify:

Your skin is a reflection of your overall health. It is the body’s largest ***, and it is an elimination ***. Toxins inside your body can make the skin on the outside of your body look less than beautiful.

When you eat foods with toxic ingredients, it is naturally reflected in your skin. The Beauty Detox Solution creates health and beauty because it has a strong element of detoxification to it.

When you detoxify your body, the results show on your skin.

Detoxification is an ongoing process – though periodic cleanses, properly designed and conducted can help launch you into a healthier long-term lifestyle. To detoxify:

Drink hot water with lemon every morning

Drink the fiber-rich

Avoid processed and fast foods that contain chemical ingredients

Stick to organic whenever possible (research grapefruit seed extract uses)

Exercise (but not to excess)

Take magnesium oxygen at bedtime

Eat enzyme-rich foods

Take probiotics

Eat a high plant-based diet (or all, as I do)

Drink a lot of water and avoid excessive caffeine

2. Nourish:

We’ve all heard the adage, you are what you eat. While this is true throughout your body, it is especially visible on your skin.

Eating toxic, chemical-laden foods can show up on your skin, leaving it dull, dry and flaky. Poor nutrition can also speed up wrinkling and cause breakouts.

Nourishing your skin begins from the inside with the foods you eat. Because the skin is an ***, it requires nutrients to maintain vibrant health.

3. Cleanse:

Keeping your skin clean is also important. Many people use harsh cleansers that can actually *** the skin of important hydration and leave it dull. Use a mild cleanser.

Because I have oily skin and used to battle acne, I used to think I needed a stronger cleanser. But now I’ve been using and love the Neutrogena Extra Gentle Cleanser (200 ml) (it cleans my face really well, but doesn’t *** it).

It works for all skin types. I don’t recommend using very drying cleansers or regular soaps on your face.

4. Exfoliate:

Exfoliation removes dead skin cells on the surface of your skin that can cause dullness. You don’t need to buy expensive products or use harsh chemical exfoliators, however.

You probably have a natural skin exfoliation agent right now in your kitchen: oatmeal.

Oatmeal both soothes and exfoliates. To make an oatmeal exfoliation mask, mix ¾ cups of ground oat groats (grind them in the food processor), or steel cut oatmeal with 1/3 cup of warm water and spread it on your skin. Allow it to dry, and then rinse off with warm water.

Another great natural exfoliator for the skin is raw organic apple cider vinegar. It contains alpha-hydroxy acids and can also balance the skin’s pH. To use, mix equal parts of apple cider vinegar and water and apply it to your skin with a cotton ball. Sit for five minutes before rinsing with warm water.

5. Hydrate:

Hydration is important for glowing, healthy skin.

Drink plenty of pure water throughout the day

Drink 16-32+ ounces of Glowing Green Smoothie, which is really hydrating and has a lot of enzymes and nutrients from the fresh fruits and vegetables.

Eat a lot of raw foods that contain their own water, like salads containing lots of brightly colored vegetables.

Avoid caffeine and alcohol, which are dehydrating.

Take in extra fluids on hot days, when you are ill or stressed, and when you exercise vigorously.

6. Protect:

Sunlight is important because it supplies valuable vitamin D. To that end, you do need to get about 10 minutes of sunlight each day on unprotected skin in order to allow your body to synthesize vitamin D.

Too much sunlight, however, can be harmful, just like anything in excess. Practice healthy sun habits, such as covering up and wearing a hat.

7. Improve circulation:

Keeping your blood flowing and promoting lymph drainage can help keep your skin glowing! Dry brushing is a technique that improves circulation and promotes lymph draining. To practice dry brushing:

Use a soft, natural bristled brush.

Dry brush before your shower every morning.

Use a light pressure as you brush.

Starting at your feet, brush in small movements up towards your heart.

When you are done, take a shower.

8. Minimize makeup:

One of the benefits of healthy skin is not having to wear a lot of makeup. I don’t wear it all the time, but I do love my favorite products, like makeup from Lotus Herbals.

It’s natural and non-toxic. It’s doesn’t make you break out – I’ve even worn it to sweaty yoga class in the middle of an afternoon and I don’t break out.

There are also other organic makeup brands that I would recommend that will get you the glowing skin you want. A lot of makeup brands contain toxins and chemicals that can clog skin, even so-called mineral brands. So choose your products judiciously.

I hope these tips help you! Great skin is on the way.
