Spring Skin Cleaning With Superfoods
Our skin, as well as our organism, needs to wake up and recover after a long winter. We will show you how to take care of your skin easily using pure natural ingredients. You all know that superfoods are great in smoothies. But have you already thought about using them on the “outside”? Throw away your old, expensive cosmetics and let see the power of Nature.
The skin is like a mirror of what is happening inside your body. The base is drinking enough water and eating fresh fruits and vegetables. Take care of your skin by doing an outdoor physical activity, sports and don´t forget to listen to your soul. Every experience you are going through will sooner or later manifest on your skin.
Choose carefully which products you put on your skin. About 60% of everything you apply to the skin gets into the bloodstream. You would not use many of ordinary cosmetics internally, right?
In fact, cosmetics is very much like food. If you don´t make it by yourself, you could never know what exactly are the ingredients like. And as our grandmothers already used to say, what we can eat that is good to our skin as well.
Why not to use the power of your favourite superfoods? For the preparation of homemade facial masks, we have chosen detoxifying green foods rich in vitamins and minerals: MSM - the "beauty mineral" and Acai - fruit full of antioxidants. Benefit from the power of these natural ingredients. You might find a recipe which will fits you and work wonders on your skin.
Healing mask for acne
Have you already heard about MSM powder, the beauty mineral? MSM powder is an organic sulphur compound known for its positive impact on the skin. It will help you to get rid of scars and hyperpigmentation. If you mix this white powder with Aloe Arborescens Lily, blend of aloe and raw honey, it is the best you can do! Aloe with raw honey regenerate the skin, heal spots and unify skin colour. Moreover, honey is efficient against bacteria.
