Dear Readers:

Everyone says to love the skin we are in and that starts with feeling comfortable in it. Though confidence is key, let’s be honest; no one wants to face a dull complexion or deal with adult acne and who enjoys dealing with dehydrated eyes in the morning. You can slather on all of the creams and make up in the world,  but if you’re not eating properly, sleeping properly and taking care of yourself, it’s going to be written all over your face.

Today, I would like to share a few tips for a glowing complexion.

Hydrate with breakfast. Go beyond the water and drink your morning meal. Create a healthy, vitamin and antioxidant rich shake to help feed your skin and fill your tummy. Follow up with lemon water every hour. Do this for three days and tell me you don’t notice a difference and feel incredible.

Get to class. Stress wreaks havoc on skin and sweat is known to de-clog pores. Win-win.

Cut the coffee in half. You don’t need to give it up altogether, but if you have two cups a day, swap one out for green tea or an herbal blend and a vitamin B12.

Eat your omega’s. Salmon, walnuts, flaxseed…all of these foods will boost your complexion and your overall health at the same time.

Make an omelette for dinner once in a while. Eggs are a great go-to for biotin and protein and many chef’s pair theirs with a glass of wine and a salad. Give it a try, it’s kind of decadent.

Protect your skin. Forgive my scolding, but I don’t care how much you want a tan, sun cream is essential. Not only does it help protect against dull skin, wrinkles and brown spots, but also skin cancer.

Much Love,

Jo
