I have lost my glow!
Having upheld my nutri-blasts, well most mornings. From which I had noticed my skin had improved. How do I explain? well it's consistency was just nicer, less blemished, less wrinkled....I mean not that I look like a leather handbag or anything, but that sleepy crinkled look was taking a bit longer to be banished from my face. It was just all round easier to manage. So I looked to the blast bible, for a mix that focused on a decent beauty blend. This would ensure my inner glow would certainly reappear, by mixing key blends to bring not only that glow back, but glowing teeth, eyes, hair.
So for example with mixes such as Glow profile- which mixes swiss chard, pineapple, strawberries, goji berries, cashews, top off with water and blend.
So far, I am feeling better and my skin seems to be re-appearing with that brighter look. I have also ensured I allow a little more time for my cleansing ritual of an evening and morning. If unlike me, you are too lazy..I mean busy! to do a morning smoothie. Here are a few alternatives:
There are thousands of kits out there, and having delved in to the at home micro-derm facials, gentle peels and so on. I am keen to give Ole Henriksen a go. I only here all good feedback, on all his products, so look forward to being able to do the same.
The enLighten me kit, promises to reveal brighter and more glowing skin, by using products that work together to balance skin.
If like me you need to banish your crinkled pillow face, give Benefits Puff off a go. Quick and easy to use, the applicator allows you to work round awkward areas of the eyes to release a cooling under eye gel.
Skin care over haul:
Bliss have released a range that focus's on skin energising products. Where the skin lacks in Oxygen, Bliss's products aims to fuel the skin with a much needed oxygen hit to bring that glow back.
Try their triple oxygen instant energising cleansing foam, and for an extra oomph the triple oxygen instant energizing mask.
For a little more of a luxurious treat, Korres have released a Wild Rose range. Wild Rose oil is known to be rich in vitamin C. The range aims to work on skin discolouration issues, to reveal clearer and more radiant skin. A good exfoliator is always needed to cleanse, whilst removing impurities and dead skin cells, it is a great way to release that glowing complexion. limit this to twice a week for a good scrub and ensure you tone and moisturise after.
It protects from damaging rays, the sun is one of the biggest cause of wrinkles, and sun damage is harder to reverse, then if you were to prevent it with an SPF, both in summer and in winter. If you don't like old school suncream, try to find products with an SPF in them.
Clean all tools:
be it your make-up brushes, flannels/muslim cloths and even your phone. It's amazing how often people forget to clean these tools, that can be the biggest bacteria carrying culprits.
Snack on nuts, drink that water down:
Nuts are packed full of skin friendly nutrients, try to select the nuts you eat wisely. Brazil nuts contain selenium, great for increasing skin elasticity. Walnuts for omega-3-fatty acids, with lower inflammation and reduce breakouts, finally Macadamia nuts also full of fatty acids and quality oils, great for repair and rejuvenation of the skin. Remember, although good to snack on, a handful a day is enough. For obvious reasons water is a great way to hydrate your body, whilst flushing out toxins. Your body is made up of 60% water so it makes sense thats it needs to be replenished.
Now sitting here supping on green tea with a hint of lemon, another known treat for the body mind and soul. I am ever hopeful that what is said about green tea, rings true. Apparently loaded with anti oxidants, which help brain function, lowers risks of cancer, fat loss and many more benefits. Some of these I am still waiting on...ok most. at present I seem in good health though and in my mind it doesn't taste all that great, so it must be good for you right?!
Hopefully, the above lil gems, may have given you a new lease of life to get that glow back, just in time for summer.
