Simply add a 1/2 teaspoon to your favorite cleansing cream or lotion and gently massage all over your face in small circles. Use twice once or twice a week. That’s it!

5 kinds of food to help your face look healthy!

There are a lot of beauty products to make your skin “look” healthy. But these products are 1) most of the time very expensive and 2) they only make your face look like it’s healthy.  But is your face really healthy?

I’ve done some research and I came to the conclusion that the only way to get a healthy skin is by eating healthy food.
I’ve picked 5 kinds of food which are good for your skin.

1) Chocolate
Cocao hydrates your skin, making it firmer and more supple. Dark chocolate contains high levels of flavonols, a potent type of antioxidant. For maximum result eat chocolate that’s at least 70% cacao.

2) Yoghurt
Prevent Wrinkles with Yogurt.
The protein you get from eating dairy helps skin become firmer, so it’s more resistant to lines. Greek yogurt is especially beneficial. The protein content is often double that of regular yogurt.

3) Pomgranates

They’re packed with polyphenol antioxidants. Polyphenols fight free radicals and regulate skin’s blood flow, giving it rosiness. One pomegranate or a few glasses of juice daily should do the trick. When applied to skin, the fruits’ antioxidants help smooth lines and moisturize

4) Walnuts
Walnuts contain omega-3 essential fatty acids, which can improve skin’s elasticity. The nuts are also loaded with copper, a mineral that boosts collagen production. Snack on a handful of walnuts each day to improve your complexion’s texture.

5) Peppers
Women who eat green and yellow vegetables regularly tend to have fewer wrinkles, especially around the eyes. Also, studies found that carotenoids — the antioxidants in yellow and orange veggies — can decrease skin’s sensitivity to the sun.

These were the first 5 kinds of food to help your face look better I’ll post 5 more products next week.
