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.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
