How to Get Glowing Skin

How to Get Glowing Skin

If you are wondering how to get glowing skin naturally, you've come to the right place!  

To Chocolate Infinity & Beyond!   

If you enjoy chocolate as much as so many people do, you should eat more of it. Why? Because it's good for your skin. Dark chocolate is full of antioxidants such as phenols, flavanols, & catechins among others. The antioxidants that are in chocolate keep your skin youthful by protecting your skin against premature oxidation. 

Chocolate Shopping Tip:  If you are out shopping for chocolate in your local grocery store, know that chocolate is graded based on how much raw cocoa it has.  For example, a white chocolate Kit Kat bar wouldn't have nearly as much raw cocoa as a bag of Brookside's Dark Chocolate Bites. Keep in mind that for the raw cocoa to benefit your skin it needs to have at least 70% cocoa.  

Citrus is Bae

Fruits are overall good for your skin & hair, but the orange is a delicious fruit that is full of amazing ingredients that will benefit your skin. Oranges are rich in vitamins (the most popular vitamin being C) & natural oils. The natural oils in oranges help to keep your skin moisturized, are good for acne-prone skin, & eradicates bacteria. The vitamin C in oranges helps your skin to look younger & it protects your skin from the effects of aging by producing collagen.

How-To Tip: After eating an orange don't throw away the peels, but instead place the orange peels in a heat resistant sturdy bowl. Boil some water, pour the water over the peels, & leave for a day.  The next thing you should do is filter the water & refrigerate. You can then apply the liquid to your face using a cotton ball. Once you've allowed it to dry your face will have a glow to it.   

Peace, Love, & Avocado

Enjoy that guacamole because avocados are packed with phytonutrients which are substances found in certain plants that are believed to be beneficial to human health. The fruit (yes, it's a fruit) contains beta carotene, fatty acids, protein, lecithin, & vitamins A, D, & E.  The nutrients listed are easily absorbed by the epidermis (the outermost layer of skin), which helps to form new skin. The antioxidants & anti-inflammatory properties in avocados aid your skin in staying moisturized & provides protection from harmful UV rays.

Tips to Use Avocado Oil for Skincare: Simply massage a generous amount in your skin after a bath because it can be used as a lotion for chapped skin. The avocado oil can be used by itself or you can add it to one of your favorite 'Rejuve Jar' butters.
