I have combination skin like many others, and because my skin can get dry and oily in different parts of my face and at different timings, acne is something that comes and goes too. While I still have the occasional pimples, I’d have to say my skin now is a great improvement from just half a year ago and when I do get acne and pimples, they recover and heal faster than before. So what exactly did I do to make the positive change? Well, I just made two changes: switching to a less acidic diet and opting for organic skincare.
One of the most common beauty tips you’ve come across must be to drink eight glasses of water each day. While some experts have established that we don’t need to drink that much water to have healthy, glowing skin, the fact remains that we need to drink enough water to prevent cell dehydration that can contribute to skin wrinkling. Personally, I know that my skin becomes dry when I don’t drink sufficient water but I also know my skin doesn’t look any better when I drink lots of water. So my call is to drink a balanced amount according to what you need, and more importantly, to drink quality water for the sake of our wellness and beauty. But what exactly is quality water? Is the water you are consuming considered a quality water supply?
Having green smoothies in the mornings before heading to school or work in place of popping a multi-vitamin pill may sound like too much hassle, but it will yield you tremendous health and beauty benefits. For one, the nutritious combinations of fruits and vegetables loaded with antioxidants are especially good for your skin. And because many of the ingredients here are also alkalizing, that helps the body to release skin-irritating toxins. In fact, ever since I got started on green smoothies, my acne-prone skin got better and healed much faster.
It took some itchy rashes to realize that Coenzyme Q10 just isn’t suitable for me even though it is said to provide great skin benefits. What a bummer right? And it’s kind of strange considering that Coenzyme Q10 or simply CoQ10, is a powerful antioxidant naturally found in our human cells that helps convert food into energy. The reason why I was certain it caused my rashes was because when I stopped taking the particular supplement contain CoQ10, the itching stop. And when I resumed again, the itchy rashes returned.
