We all love that all-natural glow. You know, the gorgeous beauty that radiates from within. But the harsh winter weather can leave your skin looking less than stellar. Here are 5 all-natural ways to keep your winter skin gorgeous and glowing.
On average, drink half of your body weight in ounces. More if you exercise and drink a lot of caffeine and/or alcohol. Water keeps your entire system functioning properly and hydrates your skin.
Eat Healthy & Exercise
As the old saying goes, “you are what you eat.” Your skin will reflect your dietary choices. Decrease the sugar and starches, and increase the amount of fruits, veggies, and Omega-3 fatty acids. Get moving. Participate in your favorite fun-sweaty-activity whether it’s walking, running, Zumba, yoga, or even shoveling snow. Take your workout indoors if the weather doesn’t permit.
Proper Skin Care
Keep your skin care products clean and simple and look for toxic-free options. Many skin care products contain chemicals that actually have an adverse affect on the skin (and many are endocrine disruptors – yikes!). Look for products which are free of color, fragrance, oxybenzone, DEA, parabens, dioxin, PEG, and phthalates.
Your inner glow comes from within. But a little all-natural makeup also does wonders! Follow these 3 easy steps:
Proper dry brushing will help to exfoliate the dead cells from your skin, and energizes your lymphatic system. Dry brush 5-7 times a week for 5-10 minutes before your shower. Brush your limbs towards your heart, and use circular motions around your major lymphatic areas (groin, armpits, stomach).
