I have been doing research for a while about how to take better care of my skin. I have always had pretty good skin, but as I have now hit the big 50 this year, I am noticing changes. My skin has always been pretty smooth and my complexion has been pretty even. I have not had many issue with breakouts or oily skin except for the occasional zit here and there. I have been getting little patches of acne close to my hairline and along my chin. I have also been seeing a few patches where my skin looks uneven and on the dry side. I had read that certain foods were good for your skin and I found some interesting facts. Here are my favorites:
- Bananas: Most of the time you do not want your bananas to get brown, but if they do, I have a solution for them. Bananas are great for exfoliating as well as adding brightness to dull skin. If you have dry skin, mash up some bananas and they make a great moisturizer.
- Lemons: If you have large pores or if you have oily skin, lemon juice is perfect. The acidic properties in citrus fruits, especially lemons and limes are great to tighten up those pores.
- Honey: Honey has wonderful antibacterial properties which can keep those zits away. If you are prone to breakouts and there is a pattern to them, you can treat your skin a few days beforehand and you can help prevent more acne. For that dry skin of yours, honey is a fantastic moisturizer that will hydrate your skin.
- Cocoa: I love chocolate but I never thought about putting it on my face. Well, I am more open to that idea now that I know it has anti-aging properties. If you have been out in the sun a little too much in your day, cocoa is great for helping reduce sun damage to your skin. If you are not comfortable putting these foods on your face or body, you can purchase products that contain them. One company that I found has some awesome products that include some of these foods is Organica Pure.
Foods That Are Good For Your Skin
I know it sounds a bit strange, but I think there is something to this food on the face thing. I thought if these foods were good for us to eat that it would make sense it would be good for our skin as well. I thought it was cool to find foods that are good for your skin from a company that uses such fine organic ingredients. Two of the products that I received from Organica Pure were the Cocoa and Honey Organic Lotion and the Aloe Vera and Honey Deep Cleanser. I love the lotion for the way it smells so yummy and the way it makes my skin feel. The product has Mayan cocoa and high quality honey to nourish your skin without making it feel greasy. The way the honey and the cocoa works together makes your skin feel so deliciously soft. My husband really loves the way it makes my skin feel.
The cleanser is one of the lightest feeling cleansers I have ever used. It foams up nicely and it does not leave your skin feeling tight and dry like some can do. The cleanser is made to tone your skin and with its anti-aging ingredients, I know I am treating my skin well. With the aloe and honey that comes from the Yukatan, you are getting a one-two combination for leaving your skin so soft. These products are just heavenly and if this is how my skin feels after I put some food on it, then I am all for it! Cocoa, Aloe Vera and honey are ancient natural skin care remedies and the folks at Organica Pure highlight those in their products. The skincare experts with the company have worked closely with organic suppliers in Mexico to guarantee their products have the finest ingredients. From the moment you use their products on your skin, you completely see that is exactly what they have done. You can purchase the fine products from Organica Pure from their online storefront.
