Simple Tips To Achieve Beautiful Skin *UPDATED*

Several recipes at end of post!

1. Stay out of the sun as much as possible as it ages the skin! But when you have to be out in the sun wear a hat, sunglasses, and always wear sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30! Summer, winter, rain, or snow! Sunscreen is the most important thing that you can do to keep yourself from looking older and to protect yourself from skin cancer! However, according to Dover SPF alone is not enough!  Studies show that antioxidants enhance the effect of sunscreen. There are many antioxidants available including the following: Vitamin E and C (also known as L'absorbic acid) Coffee berry, green tea, acai, blueberries, and pomegranate! You can consume the items but for best results apply an antioxidant cream containing the items listed for best results! The easiest to find and likely cheapest would be the vitamin E or C creams!*When selecting vitamin e and c creams make sure you choose a vitamin e cream with at least 1 percent of vitamin e to be effective. Choose a vitamin c cream with at least 5 percent of vitamin c. Apply one of the vitamin creams then apply your sunscreen!

2. For a healthy beautiful glow in your complexion, softer skin, more moisturized skin, and healthier hair drink 10 eight ounce glasses of water a day the more the better! You'll notice the changes after about week! Drinking water is the best thing you can do for your skin, nails, and hair! If you don't eat enough fruits take a vitamin C once a day! Eat a salad every night or a servings of vegetables like carrots, cucumbers, broccoli, tomatoes, celery, beets, squash, whatever you like!
