Unfortunately, everyone gets wrinkles at some point in time. However, we do not always have the funds or time to have them surgically removed. We did some research and found some really cool tips to prevent and remove those bad boys!
- Drink Water
Wrinkles typically develop from loss of moisture. The best way to avoid wrinkles is to stay hydrated and drink about six to eight cups of water every day. However, if you are more active than usual, try to drink eight to ten cups of water.
- Eat Right
Eggs, beans, and legumes are full of antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, trace minerals like selenium and copper, high-quality protein, retinol- one of the forms of vitamin A, iron, vitamin E and C. Those supplements play a key role in fight wrinkles. I would suggest eating one cup of either food items every day.
- Get Sleep
Along with drinking water and eating right, you have to get about 8 hours of sleep each day. While sleeping, your body produces human growth hormones which controls the growth of all body tissues including skin. When you don’t get enough sleep, your body releases cortisol which is a stress hormone responsible for slowing down the growth and even damaging tissues.
How important is it to clean your face of all the debris?
It is extremely important! However, it is also important to use products that are natural and effective. We have found threeawesome face cleansers for you guys. We hope you enjoy them.
- Egg White Scrub
Egg whites have skin-toning and complexion-enhancing properties, including reducing the size of your pores and keeping your skin free from impurities. This scrub can be prepared in two different ways.
- First, whip one egg white until you get a foamy texture. Chill it in the refrigerator for five minutes and then mix in the juice from half a lemon. Apply the mixture on your skin, let it dry for approximately 10 minutes and then rinse it off with warm water.
- Also, prepare a homemade scrub with one tablespoon each of finely ground almonds and honey along with one egg white. Blend the ingredients together to make a thick paste. Apply it on your face and gently scrub in circular motions. Leave it on for until it dries completely and then wipe off the scrub with a wet washcloth. Use this facial scrub once or twice a week.
- Oatmeal Mask
Oatmeal is one of the gentlest ingredients for the face. It cleanses the pores, absorbs excess oil, and exfoliates the skin.
- First, mix one-half cup of cooked oatmeal and one teaspoon of olive oil.
- Then, apply it on your skin and let it sit for 15 minutes.
- Finally, wipe it off with a wet washcloth and then rinse thoroughly with cool or cold water.
- Honey Wash
Honey is more than perfect for preventing clogged pores because it tightens the skin pores and reduces excess skin oil! There are about two ways to prepare this.
- One way is to mix together three tablespoons of honey and two teaspoons of ground cinnamon. Apply the mixture on the affected area. Leave it on your skin for 20 minutes and then wash it off with lukewarm water.
- Another way is to make a face mask with two tablespoons of plain yogurt and one teaspoon each of honey and olive oil. Mix all the ingredients and then apply it on your face. Leave it on for 15 minutes and then wash it off with lukewarm water. Use this face mask once a week to remove impurities and nourish your skin.
We are so excited to share with you what we have learned over the past few days. We have been doing research on preventing hair from graying. Guess what? We can prevent hair from graying! So put the dye down and read this article.
Gray hair can be caused by a few things.
- Lack of Vitamin B-12
A lack of Vitamin B-12 increases the likelihood of melanin pigmentation. Salmon, egg, cheese and beef are great Vitamin B-12 carriers. Eat up!
- Smoking, Drinking Alcohol and/or habituated caffeine
Those habits only increase your chances of growing gray hair. We would advise to try cutting those habits out of your life and find more natural alternatives.
- Eat Right
Foods that are rich in copper, zinc, iron, omega-3 fatty acid, folic acid and natural herbs. Not only do they prevent gray hair, but they also increase healthy hair growth. Some examples of those foods are oyster oil, blueberries, nuts, sunflower seeds, green leafy vegetables, and beef.
We all want to feel pretty and young. Except, who wants to spend months spending money on dozens of bottles of stuff that does not work or make the situation even worse? … NOBODY!
Over the last couple of weeks, we have been experimenting on DIY (Do It Yourself) products. We are so excited to share our favorites with you!Here are our top three:

Mix a little of brown sugar and oil (coconut or olive). Use the mix to exfoliate your skin and clean those pores. You can also use it to scrub dead skin off of your feet. This is a definitely a great way to refresh your pedicure/ manicure in between nail salon business.
- Sheaor Cocoa Butter
Shea or Cocoa Butter is one of the best ways to get rid of those terrible dark spots on your face (or anywhere else). Just rub a tiny bit on the spot before you go to bad and after you wash your face in the morning. It is a great, natural moisturizer – those dark spots will be gone in no time!
