Prepare your skin for Autumn and Winter


Achieving a smooth, luminous complexion during the winter can be difficult.
As I mentioned in my previous post, I like Autumn, however, the season also comes along with cold weather, wind and conditions that will leave your skin dry.
Are you ready for Autumn?
Here are a few simple skin rejuvenation tips, your little reminder: 

Youthful skin
Stay hydrated and drink plenty of water every day. Water helps flush out toxins and waste products from the body, also moisturizes your skin from the inside, making it more youthful looking.     
Sleep on silk pillowcases to pre­vent hair damage/breakage and keep your skin look­ing youth­ful. Your hair and skin will thank you.  
Keeping the skin hydrated is very important so applying a moisturizer is a must. 

Slow down aging
Drink Green tea, it is an excellent source of antioxidants and as we know antioxidants can slow down aging. green tea can also help in weight loss, but drinking one cup isn't going to help. The best way to lose weight is drinking about 3-4 cups daily.

Reduce eye wrinkles
Applying mashed avocado decreases the appearances of fine lines around the eyes and under eye wrinkles. The natural oils in the avocado will moisturize and nourish your skin, and your skin will look beautiful and more attractive.
Avocados are an excellent and effective remedy for reducing eye wrinkles. 

Speed up your metabolism
If you overeat or feel you cannot digest your food properly, try drinking honey with warm water. Honey improves digestion. You can also mix a spoonful of honey and lemon juice from half a lemon into a cup of warm water and drink it. 
In the morning also include a good amount of yogurt in your breakfast, it is a best thing to make your digestion system strong and it help to digest a heavy meal easily. Check for live and active cultures on the label.   

Deep treat with olive (coconut) oil for your hair
Warm up a little olive oil and rub into your scalp. You can leave it on for an hour or overnight.
Wash out with a good quality shampoo.
Deep treat with coconut oil. Same as above.

Increase blood flow to the scalp - massage is an effective way to bring more blood to the area.

Maintain a healthy weight, so that the veins in your legs aren't under too much pressure. 
Drink a lots of water (it really helps). 
Also, limit your salt. Eating less salt can help with the swelling that comes with varicose veins. Eat a diet rich in fibre, include fruits, berries, fresh vegetables and whole grains. 
Remember that too much salt in your diet is one of the major causes of spider veins.

Use Bio-Oil
It is a specialist skincare oil for the face and body, specifically formulated to help reduce the appearance of scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, aging skin and uneven skin tone.
It should be massaged in a circular motion into the scar and surrounding skin, twice daily, for a minimum of 3 months.     

Choose to be positive 
Try to control your mind, learn how to calm yourself anytime you are stressed or anxious with positive afffirmations. Getting in control of the mind is a process that begins with awareness. Start with basic - choose your thoughts you want to think and hold your focus there. It's not easy, but you can do it! 
Positive Affirmations: 
I am confident
I am my own unique self - special, creative and wonderful
Each decision I make creates new opportunities
I love myself no matter what
I am surrounded by love
I have a great relationship
My relationship is filled with love, passion, understanding and fun
Money loves me, money comes to me easily
