I have received many requests to blog about skin/hair care and my favorite beauty products. Honestly speaking, I am far from being an expert on that topic, but I do have some opinions and ideas of what works and what my skin and hair respond positively to. I believe our body and mind are connected. We are what we eat, what we feel and what we drink. If we have stress in our lives, it will effect us and also how much sleep we get and the list goes on and on….
My personal opinion for every woman is that less is more when it comes to make up. Of course it depends on the type of occasion; for special events and etc it is fun for the evening. However, daily it is too much for me personally and honestly I just don’t have the time. And if I had to choose between getting all dolled up daily or squeezing in a yoga class ,well then I definitely prefer to use my time practicing yoga 😉 Also, if you take good care of yourself you might not need so much makeup, but I do understand this might depend on your own personal taste and style. I think we are all most beautiful in a pure state of happiness and just being comfortable in our own skin.
It might also be because I am just not good at it and I don’t feel very comfortable with it on. It gives my skin rashes and drys it out and I feel like I have a mask on, but mascara is something I do pretty much every day, I rarely wear any other makeup on my face.
Skincare is the first and most important thing for me. I clean my skin each and every single night before I go to bed and sleep with a good natural hydrating cream on.
Also, don’t forget that our skin is an organ, our largest organ at that, toxic and unwanted material from our bodies are eliminated as well through our skin. So basically all the bad stuff from your body goes through your skin and the toilet. If you have a poor diet and eat fast food or food that is difficult for your body to work through it gives your sweat a different odor and your skin a different texture. If your diet is REALLY bad such as full of sugary food, fast-food, too much dairy or heavily processed meats your skin most likely will pay a price for it. You must eat well to earn your skin’s glow. You can’t buy a glow with expensive skin care products.
- Drink water and plenty of it.
- Get a good night’s sleep.
- Make sure each meal includes fresh vegetables.
- Avoid sugar as much as fire 🙂
- Drink fresh cold pressed green juices.
- Exercise and sweat at least 3 times per week
- Don’t smoke!!!!
- Make love.
- Spend time outside in fresh air.
- Laugh a lot.
What I see, at least in myself, is that when I eliminate sugar, white flower and dairy, eat plenty of vegetables, fruits, drink at least 2 liters of water daily and make clean good meals my skin flourishes. Try this out for about a week to 10 days and see how your skin will change. I know summer is around the corner and most women are thinking about how to get into bikini shape. It is never really comfortable to wear a bikini especially when you might have to run after your kids on the beach as well 🙂
I try to tell myself, ” oh well it is just a body and who cares”. At the end of the day we all care at least just a little…. So I hope this will help.
