Skin to Win

Skin to Win

They say that your skin is the report card to your overall health.  We all crave that vibrant fresh glow!  It’s not always easy and I used to look at magazine covers and spa advertisements on billboards wishing that one day I would have crystal clear skin.  I suffered from severe adult acne and Rosacea.  This effected my confidence and between trying 1 million different products and applying thick layers of make up, nothing seemed to work.   NOW…..  I have people and clients asking me on a daily basis what I use on my skin because it glows and is vibrant. Pinch me am I sleeping?  People asking ME about my skin?  I want to share my secrets

WATER

The fact is that skin is an organ, and just like any other part of the body. your skin is made up of cells. And skin cells, like any other cell in the body, are made up of water. Without water, the organs will certainly not function properly or at their best.

If your skin is not getting the sufficient amount of water, the lack of hydration will present itself by turning your skin dry, tight and flaky. Dry skin has less resilience and is more prone to wrinkling.  I drink up to 12  glasses a day! Stay hydrated through out the day especially if you are working out!

MIRACLE IN A BOTTLE

We hear the word anti-oxidant thrown around a lot when it comes to skin care. It’s hard to know what products to use when there are soooo many out there.  So many “systems” and steps how do you know what works?  A friend introduced me to Nerium’s night cream www.biancaburesh.nerium.com

It has powerful antioxidants and in ONE simple step this little miracle in a bottle takes care of lines, wrinkles, discoloration and uneven skin texture.  No more pores or saggy skin.  The best part is that there are no chemicals! Real science real results!

FOOD FOR SKIN

You are what you eat:)  My top 3 skin foods

Blueberries -This low-profile berry was ranked number one in antioxidant activity by the U.S. Department of Agriculture compared to 40 common fruits and vegetables. The antioxidants in blueberries protect you from premature aging, so add half a cup to your yogurt or cereal every day.

Spinach-This leafy green vegetable is rich in nutrients and antioxidants. Spinach is loaded with lutein, which keeps your eyes healthy and sparkling. Spinach is also a good source of vitamins B, C, and E, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, and omega-3 fatty acids. Trade your lettuce for spinach, or saute spinach for a quick, healthy side.

Walnuts- You don’t need to eat cupfuls of walnuts to enjoy their many benefits: smoother skin, healthy hair, brighter eyes, and strong bones. Get your daily dose of nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E by eating a handful by themselves or throwing some in your salad, pasta, or desser
