Sunscreen Recipe

We should always protect our skin before sun exposure, even on cloudy days. Some foods act as a natural sunscreen by helping our bodies to resits the damaging effects of UV rays. By including citrus fruits, carrots, papaya, tomatoes, berries such as pomegranate, blueberries and strawberries, red grapes, leafy greens in our diet we can help our bodies to fight free radicals, reduce inflammation, and boost the skin's natural protection. These foods do not replace sunscreen, but they can help to strengthen our skin barrier.

Anti-Aging Foods

When we pack our diet with foods that are rich in antioxidants and essential nutrients, and we drink plenty of water, we will have a great combination to get the skin to look radiant, plumped and young. We should fuel ourselves with foods that have the essential nutrients that our skin craves for like watercress, vitamin C rich fruits and vegetables, blueberries, tomatoes, watermelon, avocados, nuts, sweet potatoes.

Sweet Dreams

Sleep can affect the quality of our skin and our mood, and helps the body with its cleansing processes while we rest, restoring our basic body functions. A bad night of sleep prevents the body from recovering from illnesses, it can cause us to binge eat during the day; our skin suffers as a consequence. We should try to disconnect from our electronic devices at least two hours before going to bed. Why not prepare a herbal tea, listen to soft music, or go for a relaxing walk. We can also try teas that are well-known for their relaxing and calming properties, like chamomile, lavender, fennel, and ginger tea. Many health food stores offer natural supplements like melantonin and valerian root to help improve the quality of sleep. Plan of Youth Anti Aging Eraser Serum and Peptide Perfection Beauty Cream can help to boost hydration levels so that your skin is refreshed, moisturized and glowing next morning.

In-Flight Beauty

When we pack our bags for travel we sometimes forget to take specific beauty products to treat our skin during a flight. Drying cabin air can wreak havoc on the skin. We tend to not drink enough water and so become dehydrated. As we travel our hands come into contact with many types of bacteria and then from time to time we touch our faces. This can cause skin damage by causing a breakout, developing an allergy, getting an itchy eye, increasing skin dryness, and more. It is important for us to keep reminding ourselves to drink plenty of water, take vitamins that strengthen the immune system like vitamin C, wash our hands frequently or have an anti-bacterial hand gel handy for frequent use. Plan of Youth Anti Aging Eraser Serum and Peptide Perfection Beauty Cream deep hydrate the skin while shielding against the effects of environmental pollution to delay the skin aging process.

Food Intolerance Test

When we have a skin issue and cannot figure out where it came from, then we should consult a dermatologist and get exams done to find out the root of the problem. We can also eliminate a few foods from our diet that we suspect might be causing an allergic reaction, with the help of a professional. Then if the problem clears we can slowly introduce the foods back to our diet and observe which one is causing that problem. Some foods and substances such as tomatoes, certain food dyes, preservatives, and nuts, among others can cause skin allergies. It is advisable to make a diary of what is eaten each day and how the skin reacts over the following days.

Men's Skincare

More men are getting into the habit of having a skincare routine. A man's skin is very sensitive, especially because men go through a shaving ritual that can damage the skin.

Saving your Skin

Tobacco, alcohol, drugs and junk food decrease collagen production, speeding the process of skin aging. Many chemicals and artificial ingredients are added to these products, which can weaken the skin's defenses, resulting in dry and wrinkled skin. It is known that exposure to harmful chemicals can result in a decrease of vitamin C. This vitamin helps with the production of collagen, essential for skin elasticity.
