Game Changing Face Masque …Pumpkin In Skin Care!

Pumpkin … so yummy!! Often evoking memories of a tasty coffee cake or pie, a luscious layer of a pumpkin face mask not only smells heavenly, it also leaves your skin baby soft and silky smooth. Benefits range from adding nutrition to the skin, increasing moisture levels to brightening skin tone. Pumpkin pulp and pumpkin seed oil contain a wide array of beneficial nutrients including vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs).

AHA’s are key to a glowing and radiant complexion, helping with exfoliation, moisture retention and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Adding to this glow-y goodness, pumpkin is also rich in antioxidants, and Vitamins A and C. As Eminence Organics Product Support Team Lead Alicia Hawthorne explains, “Vitamins A and C help to defend against oxidative damage. Vitamin C is especially fabulous for treating and reducing the look of dark spots.

20 Simple Wrinkle Erasers

Aging of the skin is a natural process by which the collagen and elastin, that keep our skin looking firm and youthful, begin to decline, this results in wrinkles. Cell production and cell quality also diminish over time resulting in wrinkles. These factors unfortunately are out of our control, though diet and supplements can slow down the process, it won’t stop it.

The influences that are within our control are largely environmental such as pollution (eg; smoking) and sun damage. Here are 20 easy ways to reduce wrinkles and slow down the aging process.

  1. Stop smoking (It’s #1 for a reason)
  2. Always wear sunscreen whether it’s cloudy or sunny and don’t sunbake.
  3. Hydrate your skin by drinking about 8 glasses of water a day.
  4. Use skincareproducts that contain antioxidants and AHA's.
  5. Moisturize the skin on your face twice daily.
  6. Reduce stress. (Try reading, exercising, meditating) 15 minutes a day is a good start.
  7. Reduce alcohol consumption. Overindulgingcan put enormous strain on your system and will accelerate wrinkles forming.
  8. Eat healthily by incorporating plenty of fruits and vegetables in your daily diet.
  9. Sleep at least 8 hours every night.
  10. Eat fish three times a week. Great for the skin and general health.
  11. Check with your doctor about taking supplements, your diet may be lacking some of the important ones.

10 steps to look younger .png

The secret for looking youthful has been a constant question since the beginning of time it seems. In fact, many researchers have done some experiments to find ways to slow down the aging process.

There are some techniques that have been implemented, but the most important things for us to do are being consistent in implementing a healthy lifestyle and eating habits.

We can’t stop the natural change, but we can still look younger if we want to work hard to slow down the aging process.

Therefore, I’m going to help you with 10 easy steps to make you look younger:

Detox: It’s important to start detoxification, getting rid of toxins from our bodies. Our body’smetabolism has done that process, but in everyday life, we are exposed to so many chemical hazards from air, food, and environment. Fasting or just consuming fruits and vegetables are ways to detoxify our bodies.

Sleep: Having enough sleep, at least 6-8 hours a day, will make our skin healthier. Having a good sleep is also important because the growth hormone is working during that time. It renews the old cell of our body, includingthe skin cell. Our skin will look fresh and young if we have enough sleep.

Food: Eating healthy and safe food every daywill make our body fit, slim, and also look younger. Try to eat more fish instead of red meat. Fiber foods, vegetables, fruits, and supplements are important food to consume. Drink less coffee and other caffeine beverages.

Exercise:Through routine exercise, we will feel happier, energetic, and confident. It also increases our bone density and muscle which can make our body look 15-20 years younger.

Relax: By trying to be relaxed, our face will look younger. Stress and worries appear on our face. If we can manage our stress and feel at peace, our face will look younger and attractive.

Be Positive: A positive mind and affirmations can lead to a healthier life. Negative thoughts tend to bring failure and make us look older. Meditation can lead to a positive mindset.

Medical Check-up: Just like a car, our body also needs attention and care so it can work well every day. Having routine medical checkups during our life is important to recognize diseases as soon as possible. A monthly facial or massage is good for you as well and very healing.

Active Life: Always try to be active during your life. Activities can increase health; and if you are in your elder age, your memory will increase too.

Social Life: Happy social life can increase our spirit, bring a peaceful mind, and make us feel and look younger. Communication with our friends, family, neighbors, colleagues, and others can bring happiness to us.

Performance: Start to look at our performance. Is our body weight ideal for us? If not, try to fix that to the best ideal weight. Also look at theskin, hair, nail, and teeth. Those are important as they will show our age. Looking good and feeling good will increase our performance.
