Allowing dead skin cells to accumulate on the face increases aging of the skin, To prevent this:
- Use a natural based cleanser morning and night.
- Use an exfoliating facial scrub 2 to 3 times a week
- Always use a natural moisturizer for your skin type.
- Your body responds better with full natural products instead of half natural or synthetic products. Synthetic products ages the skin, while natural products slows the aging process.
Brushing your skin gently 3 to 4 times weekly with a natural bristle brush before taking a shower will help to exfoliate and prevent (keratosis pilaris), the build up of dead skin cells that covers the follicle opening and resembles thousands of tiny blackheads on your legs, calves, or buttocks.

Nutrients that gives you clearer and nicer and firmer skin.
Some of the most fundamental and indespensible nutrients for the skin are the essential fatty acids. The essential fatty acids helps to build elastin and collagen fibers. Without the essential fatty acids in your diet, the plumpness and firmness of your skin will diminish which greatly encourage sagging, wrinkling, or loose skin. Chief sources of essential fatty acids are from certain fish like salmon, flax seed oil, anutra, or other grains and fruits such as cashew nuts, almonds, etc.
Vitamin A is essential to the skin. Its an anti ageing and antioxidant nutrient found in foods such as carrots, pumpkins, squash, sweet potatoes, green leafy vegetables, etc. Retinol is another form of vitamin A that are available in animal foods such as oily fish, eggs, chees, etc. Some symptoms of vitamin A deficiency are Dry rough and scaly skin, black heads, whiteheads, spots, boils, pimples, flaking peeling nails, frequent recurring skin infections, dry hair, etc.
Vitamin C is another super anti oxidant nutrient. Your body needs a daily supply. Vitamin C is great for wound healing and the formation of collagen. Vitamin C performs a lot of other tasks in the body such as balancing your blood cholesterol, protects against stress, its needed for energy production etc. Some signs of vitamin C deficiency are, frequent colds, infections, bleeding gums, constipation, high cholestol, clogged arteries, etc.

A Healthy Glow
Although products that are all natural work best for healthy skin, it is important to exfoliate and massage the skin. This will ensure the slowing down of the age process and improve the skins elasticity. These activities boost the amount of blood brought to the surface of the skin which carries with it fresh oxygen supplies. Massage encourages increased blood flow into the skin’s surface and is a wonderful relaxing way of working out without moving a muscle. Massage also improve the lymphatic drainage which carries away toxins and cellular debris from beneath the surface of the skin. Adding a daily exercise session, massage or exfoliation treatment with a good diet will definitely preserve long term good looks.
