Grabbed your attention with that one, didn’t I? That’s because you deserve to look incredible at any age, for any occasion. When you have a big event or are going somewhere, being told that your skin can be glowing in less than an hour can seem far fetched but it’s entirely possible and true!
It’s so easy to be discouraged when we know we need to (or want to) look our best but see an image far from youthful or glowing in the mirror. From our diets and stressors to locations and energy levels, life can really take a toll on your skin.
We can all agree to that when we first wake up and take a look in the mirror with the drooping skin reminding us of both gravity and the progression of time.
But can we beat this natural progression…..naturally?
I am happy to say that while we may not be able to beat it entirely, we can slow it down with these simple and easy to implement tools and habits. Choose them all or the ones that feel right and watch your metamorphosis take place!
Ready? Let’s do this.
1. Water : I can’t stress this aspect enough. You know that feeling that overcomes you around 3 or 4pm when you just feel like a wilted flower? Well, logic tells us that when a flower wilts, there is a need for some serious hydration. You can have all the sun you want, but in the end, it’s the water that provides the supple life vibrancy in plants, animals and humans. Try to get 60 to 80 ounces a day for best results. Pound down some H2O and watch the dark circles get lighter and skin get tighter. Drink to your health.
2. Baking Soda Scrub: It’s crunch time and the day has taken it’s toll on your skin. If you’ve worn makeup, massage a little olive oil to remove it, and then sprinkle some baking soda onto your finger tips. Massage *gently* in small circular motions, avoiding the more sensitive eye areas. Rinse with warm water and then splash your face a few times with the cold stuff. Your circulation will thank you and your skin will be silky soft!
3. Egg White Mask: This tip is one of my favorites. What you will need: a little bowl or dish a fork, 1 egg white and a lemon wedge. Put the white in the bowl and add the lemon wedge juice, whipping it gently with a fork until the vitamin C creates little foam bubbles. With your fingers or a paint brush, gently spread the mix along the tops of your cheeks, chin, nose, jaw and across your forehead, avoiding the eyes entirely, as lemon juice is not a friend to our eyes! It may begin to itch or feel tight. It could run a little. I suggest laying down in a hot bath as it sets and dries. After about 10-15 minutes, take a wet cloth and wipe off the mask, starting at the top and working your way down. Add your favorite moisturizer and presto! You look incredible.
5. Steam: Go traditional and simply add our eucalyptus shower spray to one pint of steaming water in a large bowl or pot. Lean over the container, covering your head with a towel and allow your face to take in the steam for 5-10 minutes. (Alternatively, while your in the bath, add it to the bath water) This supports the skin’s natural self cleansing functions, opening pores and reducing buildup and eruptions.
