Tip of the Week - Keep Your Skin Looking Beautiful

Your lifestyle reflects on the way your skin looks. If you eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly and generally look after yourself on the inside, you will glow on the outside.

People spend a fortune buying miracle creams and lotions thinking that they will improve the condition of your skin, and to a certain extent they will – but the best way to get young, soft, healthy skin is to eat the right foods and exercise on a regular basis.

Here are some ideas for keeping your skin in top condition and looking its best!

Eat Berries

Strawberries, raspberries and blueberries are rich in antioxidants and loaded with anthrocyanins which boost circulation. This means that cells are plumped when blood flows to those dimpled areas of cellulite making them look smoother.

Strawberries

Nuts

Try and eat a handful of nuts every day, they contain a good source of Vitamin E which helps to keep your skin looking fresh and healthy, one of the best sources are almonds, which also contain omega 3 fats that repair sun damage to skin!

Brown Rice

Switch to brown instead of white rice. It contains the B1 vitamin thiamine, whcih is essential for healthy circulation and helps to prevent wrinkles and loss of elasticity.

Green Tea

Gives a powerful boost of antioxidants and is said to be the number one anti ageing tool. It also helps to combat the loss of elasticity to the skin.
