September is the month when we rediscover the warmth of cashmere sweaters, get ready for fall cleaning and smell the aroma of pumpkin pie floating in the air. At the same time, this is the time of the year when we tend to work a little bit harder to get back in shape and perfect our day-to-day beauty rituals.
Restore the Natural Glow of Your Skin in 4 Easy Steps
Maybe you would very much like to shed those few pounds that you’ve gained during your summer vacation, minimize the wrinkles amplified by extensive sun exposure or take better care of your sun burnt, extremely dry skin. Regardless of what type of beauty goals you have already set for the following months, you should stick to an upgraded beauty ritual to reach your ideals. Here are four tactics that will help you restore and highlight the beauty of your complexion and post-summer body from within.
- Exfoliate Skin on Face and Body. Start your morning beauty ritual by gently exfoliating your skin to shed the layer of dead cells, keep your body and your complexion soft and glowing and prevent breakouts. You can make your own exfoliators, by mixing different categories of accessible ingredients. For example: lavender is well-known for its calming effect, and can be paired with sugar and coffee grounds to make a great, all-natural scrub that really works and smells amazing. Sugar and olive oil is another winning skin-softening combo that is easy to recreate in your kitchen.
- Repair Skin with Right Vitamin Rich Products. After exfoliating your skin, you should pamper it by applying quality vitamin-rich crèmes or serums on its surface. Go for light products that won’t clog your pores, and choose formulas that are based on a higher amount of natural ingredients. For instance, vitamin C and antioxidants derived from arctic cloudberries could help you protect, nourish and moisturize your skin while achieving a beautiful velvety-soft look.
- Hydrate Skin with Natural Oils. You can prevent dehydration by drinking your eight glasses of water daily; however, you should also support your efforts to keep your skin properly hydrated by massaging it regularly, using all-natural oils. Choose the best oils based on the quality and properties of their ingredients. For instance, tea tree oil can contribute to a radiant, blemish-free complexion, while grape seed oil is a marvelous alternative for oily skin, due to the fact that it helps regulate your skin’s production of natural oils. Argan oil is a miraculous anti-aging solution that comprises both fatty acids and vitamin E, two essentials that your post-summer skin requires to regain its supple, toned, youthful look.
- Do a One-Day Green Diet. Even the smallest temporary changes in your diet can have a huge positive effect on your mood, complexion and overall productivity. If you don’t believe me, try to embrace a green diet for just one day. Opt for a quick detox based on green, homemade drinks or at least replace one of your meals with a green smoothie and satisfy your appetite by eating light salads during the rest of the day. Green, all-natural drinks will help you feel energized for hours and will also support your detox goals.
Choose the best skin care ingredients derived from or inspired by nature and say yes to a greener diet to stay healthy and rejuvenate your skin without going under the knife.
