5 Tips on Anti-aging

I am going to inform you of the five best tips to help your skin as it ages.

Tip 1 Dehydrated or Lipid Dry

What is the difference between skin that is Dehydrated or Lipid Dry?

Dehydration is where the skin is lacking moisture through water as you should be drinking 2-3 litre of water a day as the body is mainly made up of water. Dehydrated skin will wrinkle when you push the skin together or feel dry and tight during the day.

Lipid Dry skin is lacking oil and good oils need to be eaten in your food daily. Some skins are both dehydrated and lipid dry so if this is your skin then do both of the following recommendation. Lipid dry skin will have finer pores and will not have any excess oil in the morning on their face and their skin will feel very dry and tight.

Dehydrated Skin;

· Drink 2-3 litres of water a day

· Drink Herbal Tea

· Drink Water infused with fruit

· Steam your face with herbs and flowers or a couple of drops of essential oils twice a week

· Use facial lotions as they hydrate the skin and prepare it for the cream phase

· Use supplements such as evening primrose oil, fish oil, vitamin E oil, Hair, Skin and Nail Multivitamin

Lipid Dry Skin;

· Use fruit, flower, herb and nut oils on your skin everyday

· Eat oily fish like salmon and tuna

· Eat avocados, seeds, nuts

· Use good oils such as olive oil, sunflower oil, flaxseed oil, coconut oil, butter

· Use bone broth as it contains natural collagen

· Use supplements such as evening primrose oil, fish oil, vitamin E oil, vitamin A oil, zinc




Tip 2 - Beautiful skin is clean skin!


Cleansing

It is essential to cleanse your skin morning and night. During the day cleanse, you are cleaning off all the dead skin cells and excess oils that have been produced during the night. During the night cleanse, you are removing dirt and grime, make-up, oil, dust and pollution.

There are two main types of cleansers: milk cleanser and foaming cleanser. I ask my clients "what type of feel do you like after you cleanse"? If they say soft a dewy feel, then I recommend a cream cleanser. If they say squeaky clean, then I recommend a foaming cleanser.

If your skin is sensitive or dry, I usually recommend using the cream cleanser at night as it is oil based so it helps get rid of all your make-up. If your skin is oily, acne or have pimples then I usually recommend a foaming cleanser day and night.

You can do a mixture of both; for example, I use the foaming cleanser in the morning and the cream cleanser at night to get rid of my make-up.

Tip 3 - Use a Mask every week

Mask are so simple to use, and your skin will thank you. Most masks are made from healing natural clay. It is however one of the most effective natural cleansing and purifying agents available. Clay works to help detox and clarify your skin. If you desire clear, fresh and vital skin, here are a few reasons why you should try a pure clay face mask!

1. Clay unclogs the skin pores and shrinks them

Whether you have oily skin or not, your pores will undoubtedly become clogged at some point. Shrinking the size of your pores can help tremendously with keeping your face clean and blemishes at bay.

2. Clay helps control the overproduction of sebum

Too much oil on the skin, abnormal shedding of dead skin cells and excess bacteria generally results in acne. You may also be prone to outbreaks if you take certain medication, produce too much sebum (a natural oil) or have a family history of acne. To keep your skin soft, supple and blemish-free, use a dab of clay mask. Leave on overnight and repeat until blemish is gone.

3. Clay draws out the toxins from the skin

Natural clay has a strong negative electrical charge. Since many toxins have a positive charge, the clay bonds to them. When it encounters a toxin, heavy metal, chemical, or other impurity, the clay will gobble up the toxin and release its minerals for the body to use.

4. Clay makes skin softer

Clay is loaded with silica, a trace mineral that strengthens connective tissue including muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bone. In addition, it makes your skin super soft. Silica is the most abundant mineral in the earth’s crust and is the name for the chemical compound silicon dioxide. Using clay masks on your skin means you reap all its benefits as it is readily absorbed.
