CHAMPAGNE

Yes it may seem cliché for me to talk about to champagne, but its June my birthday month what better tip then to give you the benefits of using champagne for skin care?

 

Just like wine, champagne contains resveratrol, a potent antioxidant that can act as a shield against damage and provides serious anti-aging benefits. Champagne can be used as a toner to help promote clear skin, the polyphenols found in champagne help reduce inflammation and skin redness.

 

Champagne contains tartaric acid, which helps balance out discoloration and can brighten your skin. Whether you sip it or dab it directly on your skin, you'll notice a difference.

 

The carbon dioxide in champagne acts as a gentle exfoliator to soothe dry skin. To get the benefits, I recommend pouring a glass into a hot bath with bath bubbles for an exfoliating and fizzy treat for your skin. Or if you’re really celebrating fill the tub with champagne

 

 

ALOE

Aloe vera contains antioxidant vitamins A, C and E — plus vitamin B12, folic acid and choline. Topical aloe vera administration in skin conditions and wound healing management, including the treatment of psoriasis, and dermatitis.

 

Aloe vera is a great natural treatment for dry hair or an itchy scalp. It has nourishing properties, and the tons of vitamins and minerals that are present keep your hair strong and healthy. Because of aloe vera’s antibacterial and antifungal properties, it also helps with dandruff, and the gel’s enzymes can rid the scalp of dead cells and promote the regeneration of skin tissue around the hair follicles.

 

Some evidence in humans and animals suggests that aloe vera is able to alleviate the chronic hyperglycemia and perturbed lipid profile that are common among people with diabetes and are major risk factors for cardiovascular complications

 

LAUGHTER

Imagine laughter being able to extend your life and offer brighter skin.  Research suggest that laughter can effect you immune system in a positive way, laughing more often can result in clear eyes, brighter skin and healthier hair, even lessen cancer cells, the hormones released during laughing help produce collagen which helps with tighter and brighter appearing skin.

It acts as a natural anti-ageing agent that helps you look younger, active and also makes you fit, both mentally and physically. This is because it enhances blood flow to the face and reduces stress (which affects your skin tone and elasticity, causing wrinkles) and provides a natural glow.

 

Laughing enhances blood flow to the heart and improves the functioning of blood vessels, which ultimately offers protection against cardiovascular health complications like heart attack.

COLD WATER

Lets face it, Hot water makes us believe that we are "super" clean, it relaxes us, and it’s the norm when it comes to skin and hair care, who would’ve known that COLD water would have more positive effects on our skin and over all health?


When talking about hair and skin, one of the best and most natural ways to maintain and persevere your appearance is with cold showers and facial rinses. Hot water has the tendency to dry out our skin, so it’s best to use cold water to tighten your cuticles and pores, which will prevent them from getting clogged.

 

Cold water can improve circulation by encouraging blood to surround our organs, which can then help combat some problems of the skin and heart. As cold water hits the body, it's ability to get blood-circulating leads the arteries to more efficiently pump blood.

CHERRIES

Who doesn’t love cherries? They are delicious and beneficial to hour over all health and skincare.  Cherries are an amazing source of vitamin a, B, C & E which means there little fruits a d a sufficient multivitamin that helps keep the skin tight, healthy and vibrant.

 

The consumption of cherries and cherries juice have a direct effect on the long term care of your skin and over all health, great for heart care and dark spots, crazy combination of pros.

 

Cherries are a very rich source of anti-oxidants, known as Anthocyanins, which are proven to be cancer-eliminating agents. Being endowed with the highest level of anti-oxidants, in comparison to other fruits, it helps in slowing down the ageing process by fighting those free radicals present in the body, which make the skin look older.

 

So if you haven’t been finding ways to incorporate cherries into you diet now is the time to start juicing and using them as a quick snack, staying young a vibrant is a cherry away.

EUCALYPTUS

 

Upon exposure to air, ooze is formed which is a well-researched antiseptic. Therefore, eucalyptus oil is used for healing wounds, ulcers, burns, cuts, abrasions and sores. It is also an effective salve for insect bites and stings. Eucalyptus oil, also known as ‘Nilgiri tel‘ (Hindi) is one ingredient that can have far-reaching effects on our overall well-being. This amazing oil is obtained from the dried leaves of the eucalyptus tree. These sweet-scented leaves are steam-distilled to make the oil. This oil is a colorless liquid with a strong woody and sweet scent.

 

Eucalyptus oil is so beneficial for our health that it’s surprising that not many people are aware of it. Eucalyptus oil can be used as, analgesic, antibacterial, anti-Infectious, anti-Inflammatory, antiviral agent, antispasmodic, and Insecticidal. Eucalyptus oil can give you the soft, blemish-free skin you so desire!

Antiperspirant VS Deodorant

Its no secret that I’m antiperspirant and slightly anti-deodorant (I’ll explain), antiperspirants are created to keep you from sweating! There is nothing normal or natural about NOT sweating, if you have read any of my past post on skin care and healthy living I encourage SWEAT, its needed to help detox and open pores not to mention it’s the body’s natural way of cooling off and alerting you that hydration and cooling down is needed.

 

Antiperspirants are designed to prevent the body from producing sweat, active chemicals are there to penetrate the skin and block sweat from reaching the surface. Aluminum is one of the active ingredient found in most antiperspirants. Aluminum blocks the pores so that sweat cannot pass through. Some types of antiperspirants contain forms of aluminum, which have been found to interact with sweat to cause yellow staining on clothes. We have all seen this before on a friend or ourselves and wondered where the yellow came from. Well, mix an aluminum complex and sweat and there is the answer.

 

In addition it changes the microbial life that lives on you. New research finds that antiperspirant and deodorant can significantly influence both the type and quantity of bacterial life found in the human armpit’s “microbiome.” Antiperspirants and deodorant affect the bacterial balance in your armpits, which actually leads to more pungent-smelling sweat.

 

Additionally, some dyes and fragrances found in antiperspirants and deodorants have been seen to cause allergic reactions and skin irritations.  This is another reason to go ‘natural’ if you can.

 

Some natural deodorants are Tom’s, Milk Cosmetics & Crystal Deodorant Stick, to name a few.
