Spring is a time of transition and of renewal. It’s the perfect time for a makeover, and an opportunity to change how we nourish our bodies and our skin. Unfortunately, most of us are starting out with a rather dull complexion and are in dire need for a change. To help out, introducing a few small tricks to your daily care will help give you the a bright, healthy complexion!
Tip 1: Exfoliation
After the harsh winter season, it is imperative you unclog your skin with a mechanical exfoliant (if you have normal skin) or an enzymatic (preferable if you have sensitive or reactive skin). Really try to exfoliate once a week and then follow that up with a nutritive serum, like our Absolute Serum, for example, which will gorge your skin with nutrients.
Tip 2: Hydration
You must absolutely remember to drink enough water to keep all the cells and tissues in your body hydrated. To learn more about hydration, we invite you to read our article: “Let’s Talk Hydration!”
High levels of vitamin C arefound in the epidermis (the outer layer of your skin) as well as in the dermis (inner layer of the skin). Its antioxidant properties and its role in collagen production help keep your skin healthy.
- Eat more citrus fruits
- Eat vegetables that have high levels of vitamin C, like broccoli, strawberries and spinach
- Drink orange juice
Like vitamin C, vitamin E is also an important antioxidant. Its main function in skin care is to protect your skin from sun damage. Vitamin E absorbs harmful UV rays from the sun.
- Eat enough nuts and seeds
- You can take vitamin E supplements, as prescribed by your doctor
Tip 4: Aesthetic care
I’m sure you’ll agree that nothing beats the skin care that a bio-beautician lavishes on you. But if you do not want toxic products on your skin, take the time to ask your skin care professionalif they use organic cosmetics or not! You do not want to have any bad surprises, especially if you have sensitive skin!
Tip 5: Breathing
Yes, the fresh air really does helpoxygenate you, and that will immediately start to show on your skin. The temperature is getting warmer, so take advantage of the spring weather to go outside, spend time with the kids, and develop a peachy complexion while having fun.
Ideally, now is the time when you shouldagain opt for a healthy diet (you can slowly start juicing again), oxygenate yourself well, use high quality natural cosmetics, and let yourself be pampered by a bio-beautician!
