Clear Radiant Skin

Get That Clear Radiant Skin By Reducing Internal Impurities

To get that radiant, blemish free skin with the attractive glow, requires more that just treating your skin on a superficial level. Dealing with internal issues is considered more important that treating skin on the surface, but what can you do to achieve this?     No matter how much we treat our skin on the surface, all the treatments are superficial and the results are not going to last for very long. To actually have clearer, glowing skin, it’s essential to cleanse the body from the inside by reducing internal impurities. Radiant skin comes from a healthy, toxin-free body while blemished, pale skin is often the result of harmful toxins being ingested by the body. ‘‘People are like stained glass windows.

Skin Nourishing Oils

12 Favourite Skin Nourishing Oils

This feature is going to give you a list of natural oils that you can use that will help with a variety of body locations including your face and skin. Applying natural oil such as coconut oil, almond oil which we love, is great for keeping the skin moisturised and supple as will also help with internal issues as the skin absorbs what you apply back into your body.     Rubbing oil on your face? Sounds like an invitation for disaster. But these natural, oil-based products have taught us that we have a misconception about the substance; we think we need to get rid of it, when in reality, the more you remove, the harder your skin works to replace it, thereby creating even more oiliness. (It’s an underminer like that.) “Like cures like, so a little bit of a healthy, plant-based oil on the skin helps the skin stay balanced,” Dr. Hauschka Skin Care CEO Mirran Raphaely told TODAY.com. “The right amount signals to oil glands that they can stop producing. It may sound counter-intuitive, but once you try this method, you’ll never go back.” We hunted down the best nourishing oils on the market — for all areas of the body — and recommended our top picks: View the original article here   This is an interesting list of oils for the body including hair and nails besides skin.

Get Rid Of Acne

Experts Tell You How To Get Rid Of Acne – But Are They Right?

How to Naturally get rid of Acne for Good Here is another article which shares some home made natural remedies for face acne. They also go into details about chemical peels and what they can do. We are not big supporters of chemical peels as all types of acne and severity can be treated naturally, provided you treat your acne from inside out. As you know, acne is an internal condition, treating only the symptoms is not enough to get rid of acne If pimples and acne scars on the face are bothering you, try putting some garlic juice or a mud pack. Or if you are game for medical help, laser treatment and chemical peels are an alternative, say dermatologists. The acne problem usually starts around the age of 10-13. Though many get rid of it by their 20s, for some it lingers. ”In teenagers, there are two things that trigger acne problem. First is hormonal changes in their body. In boys, it is the increased secretion of testosterone and in girls, the levels of both testosterone and oestrogen rises,” Chytra V. Anand, cosmetic dermatologist, Kosmoderma Clinics, Bangalore, told IANS. ”Due to these hormones the oil secretion in the body increases and the skin becomes oily and more prone to acne and breakouts. The other trigger for acne is bacterial infection,” she added. View the original article here Although this article states that medical treatments are better than natural treatments, evidence keeps proving the opposite. More people have become acne free by adopting natural methods and targeting the actual cause which is always internal, than those who have used medication drugs which only treat the symptom. As soon as people stop taking the medications or over the counter products, the acne returns and sometimes worse than before. Do not believe everything so called experts claim. Click To Read More »

The important thing before doing this, is to make sure you have the right salt as not all salts are the same!   All salts are not created equal when it comes to skin and bathing.

When used correctly you can create effective products at home. One simple way I like to illustrate the difference between the makeup of salts is to have my students taste a grain of (pure with no additives) Dead Sea Salt (do not do this at home if it has scent or there are additives in it) and a grain of pure Pacific Sea Salt. The flavor speaks volumes on how different the mineral make up of salt can be! View the full salty details here   This is a really good and comprehensive article that gives treatment recipes and what salt can be used for such as muscle relief, bath soaks, removing dead skin cells, mouth wash and much more.
