Best Beauty Tips


Apply creams and ointments thinly and not liberally. Our skin is not only our largest organ but it’s also the thinnest. Only 1/10th of an inch separates us from all sorts of toxins. Our skin is highly permeable, allowing what we apply to our skin access to our blood.

Avoid or minimize damage from hot water and chlorine. Chlorine causes oxidative damage. The hotter the water, the more potential for damage – because the rate of chemical reactions increases with temperature. Hot water may cause your skin to age faster.

Use gentle (mild) and safe skin care products – organic whenever possible. Your skin absorbs it all. Don’t compromise your health and the health of your skin by using potential poisons. Remember that all dermatologists recommend only mild skin care products.

Be very sure to remove your makeup each evening.  Makeups plus environmental pollutants are chemicals which are bad to your skin and promotes aging.
Sleep on your back with one pillow. If you press your face to your pillow, you will likely experience increased puffiness in the morning, and eye bags.
Limit exfoliation to twice per week and use a gentle exfoliator. Exfoliation refreshes your skin’s surfaces and brightens your appearance as it removes dead cells from the surface of your skin. Exfoliating too often or too aggressively, you risk damaging living cells.
Apply your skin care products to warm skin in order to help your skin appear healthier. This maximizes absorption. If your skin is cold, use a warm towel to warm your skin.
Never pull or rub your skin. Apply your skin care products gently, and lightly tap for a few moments to help your skin absorb them. Rubbing stretches your skin and can promote sagging and wrinkles.
Don’t expect overnight changes. Even if you start doing everything right today, don’t be discouraged with seeming lack of progress tomorrow. It may take a month or even two to three months to notice changes.
Avoid activities which promotes wrinkles like leaning your face on your hand while sitting at a desk, which stretches your skin, also by sleeping on your side and by frowning which stretches your skin and promote sagging.
Don’t smoke. Smoking causes free radical production, which is one cause of the signs of aging.
Use sunscreen with safe and effective ingredients if you will be in the sun for extended periods of time.
Hydrate your entire system with lots of water and high anti-oxidant green tea.
Eat a healthy diet of mostly raw foods, foods high in omega-3 fatty acids which produce a hydrating effect from the inside out, and antioxidants which help fight signs of aging.
Avoid Sodium laurel or lauryl sulfate (SLS), also known as sodium laureth sulfate (SLES) Found in over 90% of personal care products and dishwashing liquid.They break down your skin’s moisture barrier, potentially leading to dry skin with premature aging
Moisturize daily with non-clogging organic moisturizers such as coconut oil or body butter. These nourish your skin instead of clogging it, as many toxin-impaired moisturizers do.
Avoid using mineral oil, paraffin, and petrolatum products coat the skin like plastic – clogging pores and creating a build-up of toxins.
