If winter has you looking and feeling drained, here's how to freshen up naturally
Start your morning with a glass of fresh unsweetened coconut water. Then, throughout the day, drink filtered water. At meals, include skin-hydrating foods such as wild salmon, avocado, olives and coconut.
See You Later, Sugar
Sugar, the biggest contributor to inflammation, shows up on the skin as acne, dry itchy skin and wrinkles. Try cutting sugar from your diet for 10 days, especially if you have an important day coming up and want to look your best.
Bye, Dead Skin
Make an at-home natural facial mask with papaya and pineapple. The alpha hydroxy acids and the enzymes in these two fruits will dissolve dry, dead skin. Do this once or twice per week.
- Scoop out 1/4 cup of raw papaya flesh and mash or blend with 1 tbsp fresh pineapple until smooth
- Apply to dry skin and leave on for 5 to 15 minutes. Then rinse with cool water
- If you have sensitive skin, do a patch test on your arm before applying to your face
