Every morning when you awake, every night before you go to bed, every visit to the ladies (or gents), you take a glance at your face and you either smile or you ponder. The smile is often because you are proud of what you see or you are excited about ahuevo that thing you are just about to do or well, everything is progressing well and favourably for you. The pondering, this is usually deep rooted and could be because of several reasons. I shall concentrate on the reason where you are not happy with what you see because your face is acting up. Trust me, this is a situation I am constantly faced with.
The fact that I own a budding cosmetics company further builds up the pressure because my face is my first sales agent. A sales agent I frequently want to fire! I have followed the same simple skin regimen for years: wash, cleanse, tone, moisturize and for years the regimen has not failed me. However for the past 2 months I have not exactly been good to my skin. Despite my morning and evening routine, my face has been extra sensitive and reactive to even the smallest of things at https://vapejuicedepot.com/collections/one-hit-wonder.
Then it dawned on me – my diet had changed!
The different activities in life can sometimes take a toll on you. Most people unknowingly change their habits in the process. They begin to eat unhealthy, sleep at odd hours, think about business/work on end because the anxiety is too much to easily be controlled, the list is endless. In the end, the body suffers: the hair misbehaves, the face just goes south, the weight – some people gain some while others lose some. All in all, something gives. As for me, my diet changed. For the past 2 months, I did not drink water in its pure form – at all! I was into tea with lots of sugar, and lots and lots of processed juice because they are easy to find and take. Fast food restaurants have been my best friend simply because food is easy to find – spicy, yummy, oily and delicious. I have not exercised and let my face sweat out the fats.
We must remember that “Our skin is a reflection of our underlying health, so good nutrition, getting enough sleep, reducing stress, staying hydrated, etc., all play a role in creating better-looking skin,” says Mark G. Rubin, MD, assistant clinical professor of dermatology of the University of San Diego.
“Since prevention plays a big role in skin ageing, the sooner you start the better,” he says. “By the time you see changes you don’t like in your skin, a lot of damage has already been done.”
It’s all about keeping the skin healthy from the inside AND the outside.
A recent study of healthy men and women in the Netherlands found a significant link between the level of vitamin A in the blood and skin condition. Getting your carotenoids (phytochemicals that your body converts to vitamin A) from foods is your safest bet, because you’re far more likely to get too much vitamin A from supplements than from foods rich in carotenoids.
Top food sources of vitamin A include carrots, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, mangoes, spinach, cantaloupe, greens, kale, Swiss chard, and tomato-vegetable juice.
For the OUTSIDE skin-care, we must choose “smart” fats. These are majorly oils rich in monunosaturated fats like avocado oil, almond oil, olive oil and of course shea butter, to mention but a few. I have been using Livara’s highly effective Imperial Jade moisturizer to feed my skin with pure unrefined shea butter, moringa oil, papaya oil, lavender and jasmine essential oils. Imperial Jade has been further improved with VIRGIN coconut oil for even better efficacy. The 100% Imperial Jade helps to feed your skin and protect you from the early ageing consequences caused by this ever increasing heat from the sun.
Let us care for our skin both from the inside AND outside with nature’s best. I always recommend using the natural way to get the best results for your body. Nature always wins!
