Cut down salt and sugar intake to look younger

2419297986 4f50fe078f o Cut down salt and sugar intake to look younger

I just learnt that excessive salt and sugar consumption is bad news for our skin and we need to cut back our intake of these if we want to look younger.

Why salt is bad for our skin
Too much salt in the form of sodium chloride is not only bad for our health but will result in water retention and result in those puffy regions around the eyes. In addition, consuming too much salt can cause high blood pressure which increases the risk of those unsightly spider veins.  I even read that it can contribute to acne and something else, wrinkles and skin pigmentation!

Organic deodorant that really work

2410426887 607ee3311b o Organic deodorant that really work

I have tried a few organic or botannical anti-perspirants and deodorants but they usually do not have good staying power.  In plain English, they suck.  Sukin Organics Deodorant which I reviewed recently performed better but fared badly in terms of usage.  So I was really skeptical about Nature’s Gate Organics Fruit Blends Deodorant which was mentioned in Health.com as an organic deodorant that work and leave you smelling sweet. 

But girls, they’re right.  This deodorant rub on stick which is paraben-free with no aluminum but contains only 100% natural and 70% certified organic, vegetable-derived ingredients does work!

Avoid sunscreens containing Oxybenzone

One of the key reasons I’m uncomfortable with using chemical sunscreens is because studies at all levels have proven that chemical sunscreens penetrate the skin, get into the bloodstream and are harmful to the body.  As a matter of fact, a widely-used sunscreen ingredient called Oxybenzone, also known as Benzophenone-3, has been linked to allergies, hormone disruption, and cell damage with a new study recently published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to back it up.
