Top 3 Skin Tips for 2015





Top 3 Skin Tips for 2015

1. Stay Hydrated this winter. Set a goal to drink 32 oz. of water before noon. We have a tendency to dehydrate in our sleep so drinking lots of water early in the day helps us feel energized, awake and improves the lymphatics of the skin.


2. 1-2 Tablespoons of Flaxseed, Borage, or Evening Primrose Oils daily. Essential fatty acids help prevent cracking and chapping of skin



3. Dry Skin Brush & Homemade Skin Scrubs. Dry skin brush first thing in the morning helps to improve circulation to the skin’s surface replacing dry flaky skin with healthy hydrated skin. Dry skin brush daily and add in this Natural Skin Scrub 1-2 times a week.

3 Tablespoons ground oatmeal

4 drops juniper berry essential oil

2 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

Almond Scrub for Extra Dry Skin Recipe

8 Tablespoons almond meal

3-4 Tablespoons coconut, safflower, or sesame oil

Mix the ingredients in the recipe together. Apply all over the body in a circular motion while in the shower. Massage into the body for 1-3 minutes. Rinse with warm water then with cool. Pat dry.

If you make a larger batch then store in the fridge between uses. The recipe will last 10-14 days refrigerated.
