Healthy Skin Reflects Outer Beauty And Inner Health.

Treat your skin both inside and out to create a radiant glowing complexion.  Internally, you can feed your skin through good nutrition and positive lifestyle changes. Taking healthy nutrients into the body is the best way to keep skin healthy.

Vitamins A, E, and C improve the synthesis of collagen. Vitamin CoQ10 also promotes collagen production.  Anti-oxidants remove free radicals that damage skin cells. Some of the foods with the highest anti-oxidant levels are chocolate (if you get healthy chocolate without additives and sugar), acai berries and blueberries. External treatments protect your skin from damage and replenish both moisture and nutrients.  Skin is made of collagen and elastin, elastic fibers that relax as we age, causing wrinkles. To rebuild collagen, eat foods high in vitamins and anti-oxidants.  Since moisture is also important, drink plenty of water daily and protect your skin with skin lotions to create a barrier from environmental factors. Many skin creams contain moisture-retaining ingredients. Many creams contain valuable natural ingredients, or you can use them as individual additions to your daily skin care regime:  Buttermilk contains natural alpha-hydroxyacid, used in chemical peels.  Coconut oil provides a natural moisture barrier.  Almond oil contains Omega 3 fatty acids and has been used since Biblical times.  Lavender tightens the skin with natural tannins.  Grape seed extract is a strong anti-oxidant that protects the collagen and forms more elastic skin cells.
