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