After a very indulgent holiday season, not only do we feel sluggish, but our skin can look super dull, making us feel less than our best. It’s time for a beauty reset, and we’re kicking off a fresh year with a few secrets that will help you feel beautiful from the inside out. Cleanse and reboot your system with these simple natural fixes that have big beauty benefits.
Apple Cider Vinegar: As part of balancing the body’s pH, apple cider vinegar creates an overall detoxification of the body. It will help clear and balance your skin, giving it a glow. A few tablespoons in warm water each morning is all you need. Always look for organic, raw varieties with “the mother” included for the deepest benefits.
Lemon: Lemon juice is full of nutrients, including vitamin C, B-complex vitamins, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium and fibre, and has a host of benefits to get you feeling fresh and healthy. Your skin will thank you for this nutrient rich drink: squeeze half a lemon into a tall glass of lukewarm water, and drink it 10-15 minutes before breakfast each morning.
Vitamin A: Vitamin A, when taken internally or topically as Retinol, treats acne, eczema, chapped lips and dandruff. Incorporating it into the foods we eat can be tricky (unless you enjoy a weekly meal of liver), so a 2,500 UI drop of this tiny treasure is your secret weapon.
Coconut Oil: This precious oil holds a whole host of health benefits, and when swapped in place of other oils, it feeds cells, balances sebum production and increases the overall quality of skin, hair and nails. It’s even been proven to reduce weight in some cases.
Green Powder: Incorporating a comprehensive green powder into your day can be a huge source of nutrition. A quality green powder includes enzymes, spirulina, vitamins, minerals, probiotics, macro and microbiotics, antioxidants and immunity boosters. These powerhouse ingredients will get you sporting a serious glow by slowing down aging and increasing overall health!
