A short guide to getting healthy, glowing skin

Glowing skin is a sure sign that you are in optimum health and feeling bright and rested. However, your skin is often the first thing to react to any changes in your lifestyle, whether you are staying up later than usual to complete a heavy workload, going through a particularly stressful period in your life, or enjoying a few more sweet treats than normal. As a result, your skin can easily suffer from ailments like spots, dark shadows, and a dull tone. If you feel like your skin could do with a boost, read on for a short guide to getting healthy, glowing skin.

Skincare regime

From three-step regimes to retinol and hyaluronic acid and peels, the sheer amount of facial skincare regimes on the market can very quickly become overwhelming. How do you decide which is the right skincare regime best suited to your skin, and which products are simply money grabbing efforts produced by cosmetics companies? The trick is to know what type of skin you have – does it quickly become very oily, and are you susceptible to breakouts, or, conversely, do you have to moisturize frequently to prevent it from becoming painfully dry? You might even have a combination of oily and dry skin or be lucky enough not to experience major skin complaints at all. Look for products suited to your particular skin type, and try to keep your regime as simple as possible with cleansing and moisturizing, and perhaps toning if you feel your skin would benefit from that. Don’t forget to wear SPF daily either to protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun.

Opt for skin treatment

You might feel that your skin would benefit from additional treatment. You might, for instance, have an uneven skin tone, acne scarring, or be concerned about fine lines and wrinkles, which no amount of moisturizer is going to ever repair fully. If this is the case, non-surgical skin treatment can improve your skin's tone and youthful appearance. Microneedling, for instance, helps to repair the dermal matrix by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, giving your skin a smoother, more even appearance.

Eat for skin health

What you put in your body has as much impact on your skin as what you put on your body. To ensure that you have luminous skin, make sure you eat a diet rich in nutrients for skin health. Choose foods that are rich in anti-oxidants, for example, fresh fruit and vegetables, and foods rich in vitamin C like berries and citrus fruit. Omega-3 fats, found in oily fish and some plant sources, help alleviate inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema and provide essential fatty acids that provide a natural moisturizer for the skin. Furthermore, ensure that you drink six to eight glasses of water per day to keep your skin hydrated and to flush out toxins from your body.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
