We can’t help but feel radiant, fresh, glowing skin is wasted on children! What we wouldn’t give for the dewy complexion of little ones, as we battle stress, sleep deprivation and age to get our skin to look youthful.
To help, here’s some tips from Mind Body Green on how to get skin to emulate the glow of yesteryear.
You don’t want to clog your skin’s pores with dirt, bad lotions, or unhealthy makeup. When you clog the pores, they become irritated and cause inflammations in the forms of pimples and bumps. Clean your skin with a mild natural foam or cleansing lotion, and wash your face with water. Do this every morning and evening, and potentially use a mist spray after.
This is a very important, but often forgotten, treatment. You can use a natural mild exfoliator such as glycolic or lactic acid. You can also exfoliate with balms and powders derived from oatmeal or almonds, or other cleaning products that use acai or seed powders.
Try a few different ones and find your favorite. Don’t forget to exfoliate the whole body and not just your face. Use a salt and sugar scrub with coconut oil and add your favorite essential oil. These days, my favorite oils are ylang ylang and lemon.
Oils and serums from natural and organic plant oils do wonders for both dry and oily skin. Some great options are: pure acai oil, Moroccan argan oil, and rose hip seed oil. Use these after your morning and evening cleanses while your face is still damp. Use coconut oil on the rest of your body.
Also, make sure that you get oils and fats in your diet. They feed the fat layer of the skin (the hypodermis). The healthier your hypodermis is, the more filled and firm your skin will appear. Great sources for these oils and fats are butter from grass-fed cows, organic coconut oil, cacao butter, and olive oil. Remember, eating these fats will not make you fat!
I love serums and Hyaluronic acid gel. These are the most hydrating products you can get. The second layer of your skin produces it on its own, but there is no harm in giving it a helping hand. Hyaluronic acid binds with water and functions as natural filler in your face, which is what you want. Make sure that you drink at least two litres of water a day, as water is crucial for a healthy biology.
Make sure to use lotions and creams. You don’t need specific creams for day and night purposes, just make sure to use ones that are derived from natural and organic sources. However, if you suffer from very dry skin, you might want to use an oil-rich lotion on your body in the evenings. (Just make sure that your lotions don’t include any hormone disturbing substances like parabens!)
A quick fix is to use one of our favourite radiant skin creams.
