The weather outside might be frightful, on the cold side, and harsh on your skin but that doesn’t have to stop you from getting your glow on.
Let’s face it, we all want to look our best–especially during the holiday season–as we reconnect with friends and family. And, with beauty standards at an all-time high, we are all chasing that flawless glow. But what is this glow that we are willing to spend so much time, money and effort on?
It’s that clear supple skin that says, “I am healthy and aging beautifully.”
So, how does one achieve this magical glow? Here are five tips and tricks that will have you looking and feeling beautiful and healthy this winter.
Feed your glow. The healthy glow is something worth chasing, and it’s a complete package that comes with the looks, the vibe, self-confidence, and walking with a spring in your step. One of the easiest and most effective ways to achieve it is by being conscious of what you eat.
The old saying holds true, you are what you eat. And, it shows through your skin. When it comes to food, keep it fresh, clean and colorful. Focus on consuming a variety of fruits and veggies, healthy skin-loving fats, nourishing vitamins and minerals, gut-loving probiotics and proteins.
Load up on antioxidants. Antioxidants fight those pesky free radicals that are known to cause skin damage, and they also help boost metabolism and much more. When it comes to health, both internally and externally, you can never consume too many antioxidants.
Free radicals are molecules that are missing an electron and to make up for that they go out and try to fill that void by trying to grab an electron from other molecules in the body. This process is one we want to minimize as it helps to speed up the aging process of the skin.
The bottom line, load up on a variety of antioxidants and let them go to work for you.
Go for natural. Just as you are conscious about the foods you put in your body, be aware of the products you put on your skin and go for organic and natural when you can. Think about it this way, everything you put on your skin enters your body. Be sure to avoid skincare products that are loaded with harsh chemicals and stick to products that are filled with skin-loving ingredients that are known and proven to nourish your ever-important outer layer of protection.
Look for ingredients like soothing aloe vera, moisturizing coconut oil, protecting jojoba oil, restoring rose, cleansing witch hazel, nourishing organic Wild Microalgae®, balancing rosemary, and rejuvenating neem.
Better yet, get all of those ingredients in one convenient bottle of Nutrabeautiful by New Earth. Filled with antioxidants and vitamins, Nutrabeautiful is lightweight, fast-absorbing and hydrating. It promotes soft and supple skin, minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and is an excellent remedy for the elements that winter brings.
Sweat it out. Get that body moving, your heart rate up, your blood pumping and let the sweat drip. Exercise gets things moving by increasing your heart rate which leads to the expansion of blood vessels allowing your system to move more blood around your body. This improves the circulation of both nutrients and oxygen. It also helps your body release toxins through your sweat. The result of this daily habit? A post-exercise glow along with clearer and firmer skin.
Hydrate to the max. The body requires water to function properly. In fact, the human body is made up of more than 50% water with the skin containing roughly 64% water. Maintaining hydration helps to move toxins out of the body and maintain that healthy glow we all desire.
