Comme Il Faut!

 

Hi there!

 

Our skin is the largest organ in our bodies — and
it is first to showing
signs of ageing, which are
inevitable
as we grow older.

Soin De La Peau

 

We all want our skin to look as young as possible.
Our skin reflects our internal health.
A healthy lifestyle like,

a)  Not smoking

b)  Moisturising daily

c)  Using SPF 50

d)  Avoid skin irritants

e)  Avoid alcohol & caffeine

f)  Wearing hat & sunglasses

g)  Exercising daily

h)  Getting enough sleep is absolutely important.

 

The priority factor though is the diet for us to enjoy a
radiant
and moist skin.

Our diet should supply all the nutrients our skin needs
to be
healthy and well-nourished.

Savoir – Faire


The most important nutrients
for a fresh skin are:

a)  Silica, as in oats & asparagus

b)  Zinc, as in beef & lamb

c)  Omega 3 oils, as in wild salmon

d)  Selenium, as in brazil nuts

e)  Vitamin A, as in sweet potatoes

f)  Vitamin C, as in broccoli & spinach

g)  Vitamin E, as in nuts & seeds

Les Masques

 

There are three natural foods which if applied locally
can do wonders
for all skins, male or female.

 

Honey

 

Honey is antibacterial, antioxidant and moisturising.
Mix pure honey with a few drops of lemon juice (vit. C).

Dampen skin and massage circularly.

Leave for 15 min. and rinse with warm water.

 

Coconut Oil

 

Coconut oil is antimicrobial, antiviral, anti-fungal
and unclogging the pores.

Mix virgin coconut oil with a little turmeric
(antiseptic, skin lightener).

Massage well and leave for 15 min.

Rinse with warm water.

 

Oats

 

Oatmeal is a cleanser, exfoliator and a moisturiser.

Cook oats in water and when cooled make a mask.

Leave for 15 min. and wash it off with warm water.

  1. I love your 3 main foods and how you use them for things other than eating and I have used coconut oil for cooking and skin care and agree with you that it is fabulous.
