Lifestyle goes hand in hand with beauty. Don’t believe me? Well, what you eat, how you live your life and the products you use all optimise how gorgeous you can look and feel. Our skin is like a mirror: it reflects what’s going on inside. Blemishes, dry patches and aging skin are often related to bad lifestyle choices that lead to dietary toxins. It’s these toxins – and we all have them – that ruin the way our body and skin behaves from day to day. Even if you look great now – you have no idea how much better your skin, hair and body (in general) could look. I’m going to give you 3 sure- fire ways to maximise your beauty just by tiny alterations to your lifestyle.
Cherie’s Ultimate Lifestyle Tips (Part One) –
1. What You Should Eat: I’m not going to say ‘eat healthier’ because I’m sure you have heard that a thousand times. Not only is it tough to maintain a healthy eating lifestyle on a constant basis, it’s also extremely dull picturing your future on carrot sticks and water. I could tell you that a lifestyle centred around tomatoes, lemons, watercress and berries would benefit you since they are amazing skin boosters – and I’d be telling the truth – but I’m sure you want a quicker and easier way to becoming smoking hot. So, instead, I offer you the exact ingredients necessary to get gorgeous, radiant skin… fast and also where to get them.
Firstly, my all time favourite – Organic Udo’s Choice Ultimate Oil Blend 500ml. I absolutely swear by this. I wish I had Dr Udo’s personal email so I could tell him I love him! It’s simple, you pop a tablespoon of it into your smoothie or water and half an hour later, your skin feels like you have borrowed Aphrodite’s face for the day. Your skin is so soft and I have even experienced dry patches clearing up like magic. Plus, it has a full array of total wellness benefits that work alongside the beauty aspect, so if you want to find out how it can help to make you gorgeous – get a bottle. It is a ‘must – have’ in my life for sure.
Buy Spirulina. My uncle Justin – who has been at so many world class seminars on nutrition and lifestyle – has spent a fortune finding out what works and what doesn’t (especially when it comes to looking amazing.) One time, when I was at his house, he put this green powder into my fruit juice. I was horrified, I didn’t want to touch it never mind actually eat it! But, the truth is, Spirulina is very mild tasting, almost refreshing on the tongue. Plus, it just happens to be one of the most naturally nutrient rich foods on earth.
Spirulina has the most remarkable concentration of working nutrients ever known in any food, plant, grain or herb. It actually contains ALL of the essential amino acids and so is described as a ‘complete protein. Within minutes of eating it, you get a noticeable burst of energy (which I found made my face look instantly radiant.) It’s really unbelievable and has increased my quality of life on so many levels. After all, what you put inside your body is reflected in the health and beauty outside of it. I buy the organic powder only (don’t buy the tablets because the absorption rate is lower in tablet form) .
If you buy these two skin savers as part of a reasonable lifestyle, you are already half way there to your beauty transformation.
2. What you should drink – What I am about to say will make you groan in the same fashion as when your mother told you to clean your room but unfortunately it’s so true that I have to mention it.
It’s Water. Yes, boring I know… but honestly, since I started drinking just under 2 litres a day, my skin glows like I’m in love. It’s such simple addition to your lifestyle and yet I find it more effective than any cream. Water plumps out the skin, flushes away imperfections and keeps your skin hydrated and smooth. I also find that adding a slice of lemon to it is even more potent, with faster results. I didn’t start on two litres but trust me, make an effort and as your water intake increases, so will your confidence.
3.Make your own face mask/skin tonic
Let me tell you something – creams with “extract of…” (fill the blank) are usually complete rubbish. Unless they are organic, you are going to get a whole catalogue of chemicals that over time will actually cause you skin problems and damage your body. Get the right cost effective natural ingredients and you will see better results for longer, all while saving some money.
Here is the really simple miracle tonic that I started using a few years ago when I had horrific skin problems. My lifestyle consisted of work, work and did I mention work? I was run down and my skin knew it. Pimples, dryness, you name it – I had it. I was even using cream for months that the doctor prescribed but it never worked. This mask, without exaggeration, cleared up my skin and made it soft and more youthful in 6 hours!
You will need: 1 tsp Extra virgin olive oil 5 tbsp Organic Apple Cider Vinegar 10 tbsp Green Tea (To make a scrub, add sugar until thick and 1 tsp honey)
Mix it up, dab it on with a cotton pad, leave it alone. Wake up in the morning a goddess. Perfect.
If you add the above products to your lifestyle, I guarantee that in a very short time you will wonder how you ever lived without them. I feel truly gorgeous after I have used these tips and I know that you will also.
Have a wonderfully radiant day,
