You may be 70, but you want to look 50? You may be 50, but you want to look 30? Well – if that’s what you want, then you can! All it takes is attention to your natural health and to your natural beauty, and that’s what we’re here to help you do!
All of the basics that we’ve talked about before are the ones that will keep your skin looking beautiful and young. Eating a healthy diet with lots of fruits and vegetables is the first step. Some of the foods that really help to keep you looking like a “babe” are berries, tea, kiwis, avocados, carrots and other red vegetables like tomatoes, and my favorite of all – dark chocolate!
And drinking lots and lots of water to keep your whole body, including your beautiful face, is the next one. (see previous post – D is for Drinking Water – #1 Key to Natural Health).
Keeping your skin clean is important to a youthful look. Make sure you remove your makeup before you go to bed, no matter how tired you may be. If you leave it on overnight, your pores will get clogged, and your face will look dry and old!
Avoid too much exposure to the sun if you want to look perky and pretty. Too much sun is no good for your whole body, but it really wreaks havoc on your face and your neck.
Moisturize, moisturize and moisturize – every day, every night. Use a homemade cream with Vitamin E which acts as a preservative for the cream and for your skin!
2 tsp. plain yogurt
1/2 tsp. honey
1/2 tsp. lemon juice
3 capsules vitamin E (equivalent of 300 units)
Combine yogurt, honey and lemon juice. Open up the vitamin E capsules and mix the contents into the other ingredients. Gently massage into skin using upward circular strokes. Leave on skin for 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water. Apply your favorite natural moisturizer.
