The hidden influences to bad skincare – Part Two

Here are two more reasons why your skin is not at it’s best

1. Ignoring a healthy diet: This has been said time and again, however we are not preaching a dukan, paleo or harsh diet for anyone. The french have a saying, “everything in moderation, including moderation.” Following that philosophy for your diet, will help you to limit portions and emulate great energy. Drink lots of water and fruit juices (unsweetened of course), take a walk and keep your endorphins going. This will not just help with a glowing skin, but will add to mood upliftment.

2. Relying too much on product:  I love Estee Lauder, Korres, Bioderma or XYZ skincare as much as the next girl. However, relying too much on products can also effect your skin, as most often than not, your skincare alters every month. Some days, all your skin needs is a plain old organic honey mask to recover from all the product that are piled on it every day. Use simple DIY’s like honey/cinnamon masks, oatmeal/banana scrub to exfoliate, cleanse and moisturise in primitive ways. This is a great buck saver and safe for all skin types!
