The key to any skin/beauty regime is consistency – the skin is made up of several layers and it takes time for skin to adjust to new climates. If you follow the main “musts” your skin will be vibrant and glow year round.
Eat well: The old adage “you are what you eat” applies to not only our body but skin. What is lovely about spring and summer is that nature’s skin detoxifiers abound in red and blue, in the form of berries. Try eating what is in local, in season and fresh. Not only will you feel better but you will look better.
Strawberries, rich in vitamins A and C, they are great for your skin and I love using them in recipes.
3T honey 3 large ripe strawberries 1T almond oil or you can use sunflower or apricot oil. Mix ingredients in a bowl and use to cleanse skin. It not only cleanses but moisturizes.
Exfoliate: Get rid of winter skin with a gentle exfoliator, stay away from harsh scrubs and chemicals that can damage your skin. Remember your skin is shedding cells every minute, think of it as spring cleaning, sweeping away winter. When I was a child my mother would exfoliate with cornmeal which is the reason I created our award winning grits & honey scrub. What customers love about it is that it is not only an exfoliator but a moisturizer as the honey leaves your skin soft and supple. To this day her skin glows and I know it is from her routine of exfoliating and moisturizing.
