Chicago Spa Offers Seven Tips For Healthier Skin
Sesame Seed Oil: Massage organic sesame oil all over your body. Working it into the skin gets your blood circulating. Plus, the oil hydrates your skin, giving it a healthy glow. Then take a shower and rinse away dead skin cells.
Fish Oil: Anti-inflammatories are the best anti-agers out there. From improving heart and immune functions to helping hair grow and skin look supple, they truly do wonders. I take three 500 milligram capsules of omega-3 fish oil in the morning and at night. Look for labels that say, ‘molecularly distilled for purity,’ which means pesticide-free.
Avoid White Sugar: The number-one ingredient that I avoid in my diet is processed sugar. The reason: It speeds up the aging process by binding to and eventually weakening the collagen in your skin, which can lead to premature wrinkles and sagging. Eat lots of vegetables and fruits every day.
Use White Sugar As An Exfoliant: Before you toss out that bag of white sugar, add it to your skin care arsenal. In the shower, lather your hands with a mild cleanser, add a handful of white sugar, and rub it all over your face and body. It makes your skin very smooth.
Treat Eyes With Extra Care: I treat the skin around my eyes separately. Face creams can be too irritating, but products made for this delicate area work wonders for smoothing fine lines.
Pamper Your Hands: Take care of your hands with the same routine used on your face. Exfoliate your hands and use a mask on them, too. Try an enzyme concentrate on your face and hands.
Give Your Skin Vitamins: Try an over-the-counter topical vitamin C cream with a 30 percent concentration. It’s a wonderful antioxidant that helps skin repair itself from sun damage. Another way to inject your skin with moisture and vitamin C is with bananas. Mash up a banana and apply it to your skin as a mask. Let it set just like a regular mask and wash it off after it drys.
Also, be sure to minimize your consumption of alcohol and tobacco. We also urge you to minimize your use of makeup. Although makeup might make you look happy and healthy, it can clog pores and inject toxins directly into your body.
