Skin Tips

Tip: Keep your skin hydrated by drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day (this hydrates the whole body and since your skin is your largest organ, drinking plenty of water is also great for it).

Tip: Look for products that contain Vitamin K as it is an excellent source of Farnesol which is known to smooth wrinkles, normalize sebum (oil) secretion and increase the moisture binding capacity of skin.

Tip: Keep skin healthy by maintaining a diet based on whole, unprocessed foods. Also eat at least five servings of vegetables, and at least one serving of fruit per day.

Tip: Look for products containing hyaluronic acid, lactic acid and essential oils as they are all are beneficial for skin.

Tip: Never wash your face and neck with hot water!

Tip: Treat your skin overnight. Skin cells replace themselves faster than any other human cells. Since most of this activity happens while you are asleep, nurturing skin with vitamins and antioxidants overnight is the best thing you can do for healthy skin cell production.

Tip: Hydrating tip: Apply cream or moisturizer right after you wash your face or get out of the shower while skin is still damp so as to bring extra water into your skin.

Tip: Look for products that are mineral oil free, paraben free, and contain no pesticides, petroleum, propylene or other commonly used chemicals like triethanolamine, and 2-Bromo-2-Nitropropane-1, 3-Diol.

Tip: Antioxidant rich foods such as tomatoes, pomegranates and dark chocolate have been have shown to give the skin a little extra protection from the damaging effects of the sun.

Tip: Although Vitamin A may help reduce sebum (oil) production, high doses of vitamin A are not recommended. Vitamin A supplements may not even be necessary if you are receiving an adequate intake of beta-carotene, Vitamin E, and Zinc, which are all necessary for Vitamin A formation. By decreasing unhealthy fats such as margarine, hydrogenated oils, processed foods, and other sources of trans fats you can also improve the absorption of Vitamin A.

Tip: Regular face and body massages is often recommended for people with skin problems. It can help to increase circulation and lymphatic drainage and speed the healing of blemishes.

Tip: Stress reduction is also beneficial for skin, including yoga, exercise, breathing techniques, biofeedback, massage, and meditation.
