Break up with Make up this summer…
Dear lover of glowing, healthy skin!
Summer is that torrid time of year when a lot of things happen! Summer romances and midsummer nights’ dreams, intense heat and cool shade.
In all these vagaries of Mother Nature, your skin does take a real beating! Healthy, glowing skin is of course priority No.1 for health and beauty-conscious women like you.
And when you are aware of the need for an organic and natural way of living to lead a life of holistic wellness…we are sure you will appreciate the importance of certain basic steps you could take to enhance the inner beauty of your body and skin. There are some most surprising bad skin habits you need to break up with to achieve this goal.
Some women use up to 12 cosmetic products per day, exposing themselves to about 175 different chemicals! Do you know that if you tug at your face to put on eyeliner, that could cause premature wrinkles? So whatever one does, one should be within limits…for example, a common mistake is makeup overload! Leaving the house without makeup may make you feel like you’re walking around naked for a few minutes, but after awhile it’s kind of refreshing! Allowing your skin to breathe will help prevent clogged pores and breakouts while avoiding premature aging.
So, if you really believe in natural beauty and health, take a walk on the wild side – ditch your makeup, break up with it, especially the artificial variety that gets applied like a pancake on your face. Anything you put on your face other than sunscreen and moisturizer can’t be that great for your skin.
Do you know that makeup creates mayhem on your rapidly ageing skin? In fact, falling asleep with your makeup on can lead to bacterial infections, clogged pores which can cause acne (and morning pimples!), and residue that can stay on your pillow and cause you to get sick.
Make sure you always wash your face at night and in the morning too, to remove all the oil & dirt and unclog your pores and thus prevent acne. Keep your skin moist with natural moisturizers, for without that moisture you are more prone to wrinkles and dryness, especially in the summer.
The big hype now is that mineral make ups are natural. But all you are doing is clogging the skin with them, creating more black heads, and compromising your natural beauty… why would you need to cover a flaw, blemish, etc. when you can prevent them by cleansing your skin with soap and water, and rehydrating the skin with something that balances out your type of skin.
There are other basic ways of keeping healthy and glowing –
We know breaking up is hard to do, but keep in mind when you intake excess sugar it hurts the collagen nestled in your skin leaving you with sag. Fight your sweet tooth with organic fruits like pineapple or mango.
If you love air-conditioning, especially during the summer months, this tip will probably catch you off guard. Instead of cranking up the cool air, turn your air conditioner down, giving your skin extra moisture. If your cooling unit is always blaring, you’re stripping the air of humidity and moisture your skin needs.
Soft skin is a sign of youthfulness so of course we all want soft smooth skin. Moisturizing morning and night is recommended to maintain the health of your skin. If you are over say 25 you should use two different moisturizers, one at night and one for during the day. Why? Because we want to give our face all the kisses of goodness it needs in the evening but also need to protect it during the day.
During the day an organic sunscreen is an absolutely must. If you are not doing that you might as well do nothing because your poor skin will look old long before it should if you are not protecting it from the sun.
Ex-foliating is the perfect way to keep your skin youthful and healthy by getting rid of all those dead skin cells to expose the beautiful healthy skin that is just below that mask of grease and make up.
