Ah…skin. But oh, the things we do to our skin! Women (especially) are forever in search of the best solutions to give them glowing, clear, healthy, wrinkle-free skin. Most of us (definitely including me!) have to exert real effort to make our skin look good. But many of the skin care products and procedures available on today’s market leave me shaking my head – both at the product and the price tag.

Home Cures That Work for Your SkinThe good news is you don’t have to fork out the cash for expensive products to look your best. Glowing skin is within your reach, and it doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg.

We’ve all heard the adage, “You are what you eat.” While this holds true throughout your body, what you eat especially shows up on your skin. Eating toxic, chemical-laden foods can manifest on your skin, leaving it dull, dry and flaky. Poor nutrition can also speed up wrinkling and cause breakouts. Nourish your skin from the inside with these foods.

Keeping your skin clean is also important. Many people use harsh cleansers that can actually strip the skin of moisture and natural oils leaving it parched and dull. Try our naturopath’s recommended skin care products that cleanse your face and won’t irritate the skin, clog pores, or encourage breakouts.

You can also keep your skin glowing with exercise to stimulate blood flow and promote lymph drainage. Working out isn’t only about dropping pounds or prepping for your next triathlon. Regular exercise also gives you a healthy, radiant look and an unmistakable va-va-voom that you just can’t get any other way. Ways exercise makes you gorgeous.

Have you heard the expression,  “The eyes are the mirror of your soul”? In a similar way, the skin is a mirror that reveals the health of the body. What is your skin trying to tell you? Maybe you need to detox, add more nutrients to your diet, or even reduce the stress in your life. Your skin often gives you clues for what it needs — you simply have to pay attention to it. Here are the most common imbalances in the body, how they manifest on the skin, and what to do about them.

P.S.  Some over-the-counter moisturizers have petroleum-based ingredients that will actually dry your skin instead of nurturing it. Try our Soothing Blue Skin Relief Cream made with natural, hydrating ingredients like coconut butter, shea butter, and almond oil, plus essential oils like lavender to help soothe dry, itchy skin. This homemade skin care product will renew your skin like the morning dew and as radiant and glowing as the afternoon sun!
