"The natural look" is one of the most sought after looks in beauty. It is all about showing off the healthy tones of your skin and creating a flawless look!
To create healthy looking skin we must first be kind to it! Hydration, hydration, hydration is the key. Our skin is an organ just like any other part of our body. Keep it hydrated by drinking fluids and using moisturizers.
Drinking the daily recommended amounts of water will help to flush toxins out of vital organs, such as your skin. The Institute of Medicine determined that an adequate intake of fluid is roughly 9 cups a day for women and 13 cups for men. When we neglect to drink enough, dehydration sets in, our skin becomes dry, flaky and looses it's elasticity. If your skin remains thirsty, often times acne breakouts can occur and wrinkles will begin to show. It is very simple, drink a lot of fluids and water is your best resource!
When moisturizing my face topically, I have figured out that mother nature knows best! In search of the prefect skin care remedy, I've purchased multiple over-the-counter moisturizers, all which end up hardly used and permanently sitting in my bathroom vanity! It was not until I studied media makeup in LA that I discovered the benefits of coconut oil to clean my face and almond oil to moisturize. I absolutely love a blogger by the name of Sherri. Sherri is a veteran of the US Navy, a pediatric nurse and now obtaining a master's degree in holistic health. In her blog "Overthrow Martha" she focuses on finding ways to make our lives simpler and greener with creativity. Sherri best describes the benefits of natural oils for skin care.
