Skincare tip #2
Drink water! You have heard this before but it's really worth mentioning.

These are the 2 main reasons why you should drink between 11-16 cups of water a day.

1. Your organs need water to function properly

Your skin in the largest organ in your body and needs water to be able to breath and function properly. If you are dehydrated your skin will start to produce more sebum in order to compensate for your dry skin. Excess sebum leads to blocked pores which leads to blackheads which leads to acne and enlarged pores.

2. Your Kidneys and Liver needs water to flush out all toxins and waste that your body produces. If these toxins doesn't get flushed out they will start to build up in your body which in turn leads to your entire health deteriorating.

Bonus tip!

The oil in your skin is the main thing that is supposed to keep you skin moisturised but sometimes when a pore gets clogged because oxidized sebum (oil). The oil will not reach the surface of the skin and instead form a blackhead. This results in dry skin and large clogged pores.

Steam is the best and most gentle way to open up your pores and allow your skin to moisturise itself! It also helps your skin to absorb skincare products better.

To give yourself a steam facial you can either boil a large pot of water on the stove and then let the steam hit your face. (Put a towel over your head so that the steam hits your face more effectively)

Or you can buy a facial steamer to make it safer and easier to do!

(Both ways are equally effective but a facial steamer is much safer and easier to administer. The only thing you have to press a button)

Skincare tips #1
The most important thing in order to get beautiful skin is to have your diet in order.

The reason for this is that everything that you put in your body eventually will become what your body is made up of. What you put into your body also affects your hormones and a whole host of other things that affects your skin.

So these are some simple things to keep in mind when trying to improve your diet.

1. Avoid foods that Are or can Become White.

High blood sugar increases inflammation in your body which leads to acne and increased oil production.

A good rule of thumb is to avoid foods that ARE or can BE white. This is a sign of a low fiber content and that it has been refined in order to essentially remove everything that isn't carbohydrates or sugars.

2. Eat/drink your vegetables

Eating vegetables and fruits decreases inflammation as well as gives your body the necessary vitamins it needs to be healthy. A lot of skin issues stems from being deficient in certain vitamins and minerals.

One or more smoothies a day is a really good way to increase the amount of fruits and vegetables you consume.

3. Eat/drink more healthy fats

Healthy fats are essential for your Hormone Production.

If there is an imbalance in your hormones you can count on the fact that your skin will act up. Healthy fats can be found in Nuts, Avocadoes, Coconut oil, Salmon, Almonds (High in zink which is really good for your hormone production), Egg Yolks, extra virgin Olive oil. Fats to avoid comes from foods that you know to be unhealthy like fried food, Pizza, Margarine, potato chips and other snacks.

4. Don't drink your sugars

Avoid all drinks that contains sugar. This includes most soft drinks and all fruit juices. They spike your blood sugar and will make it much more likely for your skin to break out.

5. Anti-inflammatory hack

This tip certainly is not for everyone since it tastes quite bad. But if you are brave enough to try it you will notice a huge difference in your skin and overall well being. Eat 2-3 tbsp of Turmeric a day. Turmeric has large amounts of the active substance Curcumin which is highly anti-inflammatory. Lower levels of inflammation will affect all your aches and pains, improve your skin tone and reduce the risk of getting inflamed acne.

Uses of Chamomile
When choosing products, ingredients, herbs and essential oils for yourself and your business, tune into the essence of a product as well as looking at its chemical properties or physical benefits. Healing is in the spirit or essence of a plant/​product. Use your intuition to help guide you.

1. Aroma sachets and capsules. The simplest use for chamomile is to purchase organic, non-irradiated dried chamomile flowers at a local herb store. Place 2-3 teaspoons of the dried herb into a 3x4 organza bag and use it to breathe in the aroma of the flower. Inhalation of the vaporized essential oils derived from chamomile flowers in a sachet is recommended to relieve anxiety and general depression.

2. Aromatherapy massage. Roman chamomile essential oil may be used alone or blended with lavender essential oil to be used for massage that helps to reduce stress and anxiety. Studies have actually shown that three, 20-minute massage sessions per week for six weeks, show significant results with reduced anxiety and increased self-esteem in the recipients.

3. Chamomile herbal infusions. A coffee press (not used for coffee) is the perfect way to steep organic, dried chamomile flowers to use for tea or the following remedies. Add ¼ to ½ cup of herb to the bottom of the press. Fill with 1 – 2 cups of hot water. Let steep for 5 to 10 minutes until the water becomes a rich golden color. Press and pour for tea.

4. Compresses for irritation and wound healing. Use your infusion as an eye compress for eye irritation and pink eye. Let the tea cool. You may also refrigerate the infusion and then soak cotton rounds in a small portion of the liquid. Squeeze out the excess liquid and place the round on the eyelids for up to 10 minutes.

For larger areas with skin irritation, you may add a few drops of chamomile essential oil to your tea infusion. Soak a cloth or towel in a bowl of warm or cold infusion, squeeze out excess water and then apply this compress to the affected area.

5. Mouthwash to reduce inflammation. Using an herbal infusion of chamomile as a mouthwash and gargle has been known to help reduce inflammation of the mucous membranes in the mouth and throat, especially for cancer patients being treated with chemotherapy.

We're going through stressful part of our life because of virus and also stress of loosing our jobs or Economic recession or ....
Life is full of stresses , we have to be prepare for it . take necessity safety precautions but not put our lives on hold or stress too much about it. The problem is stress effect our immune system which the direct result is lines and saggy and dull looking face.

Constant worry can trigger the same stress response as a major threat—the release of adrenalin and other stress hormones— which over time can negatively impact our skin. Studies show that long-term stress suppresses the immune system in all organs, including our skin, making us more susceptible to infections and even disrupting menstrual cycles, which can lead to hormonal breakouts. cortisol, the primary stress hormone, is the main culprit. “Normally, cortisol levels oscillate by our internal circadian clock, with peak levels in the morning and low points happening around midnight. When we’re stressed, our cortisol levels are disrupted, which can cause acne and exacerbate conditions like eczema, psoriasis, rosacea and atopic dermatitis. Our skin, hair and nails are of the lowest importance to our survival., at times of stress, valuable vitamins and minerals are prioritized for our body’s vital metabolic processes and the production of stress hormones. Skin is an external barometer of what is happening internally, and we often see dull skin at times of fatigue and stress.” A dull complexion is the least of our worries—we can also expect more lines and wrinkles, too.
Consistently elevated levels of cortisol is catabolic to the body, meaning we are breaking down and failing to repair tissues, which leads to decreased collagen and elastin production.. With chronic stress we also ‘tire out’ our adrenal glands and deplete their ability to react properly to stress.
