Healthiest Foods for Glowing Skin

Did you know that the top complexion enhancements come right from the aisles of your supermarket?

 

Increasing studies are finding a connection between certain nutrients in food that reduce wrinkles, improve skin tone and reduce acne.  Here are the stellar foods that can help you achieve that glow:

  • Get Glowing With Chocolate

Cocoa hydrates your skin, making it firmer and more supple.  Dark Chocolate contains high levels of flavanols, a potent type of antioxidant,  eat chocolate that is 70% cacao.

  • Prevent Wrinkles with Yogurt 

Protein from dairy helps skin become firmer, so it’s more resistant to forming lines on the face.  Greek yogurt is especially beneficial, as the protein content is double that of regular yogurt.

  • Protect with Pomegranates

Packed with Vitamins and antioxidants, help to fight free radicals and regulate skin blood and circulation flow.

  • Soften Skin with Walnuts

Walnuts contain omega-3 essential fatty acids, which can improve skins elasticity, rich in minerals that boost collagen production to the skin.

  • Brighten Skin with Sunflower Seeds

Sunflower seeds have extremely high amounts of Vitamin E, and protects the top layers of the skin from the sun.  Sunflower seed oil can be used topically to elevate dry skin!

  • Clam the Skin with Green Tea

Green Tea is extremely high in antioxidants which is proven to reduce redness and inflammation in the body. Drink at least one cup a day and experience these benefits!

How to Do Face Cleansing at Home

The secret to having a great complexion is very simple actually!  Following a ‘Beauty Regimen’ is very important which includes removing makeup, washing the face and neck, exfoliating, moisturizing and cleansing at night.  Face cleansing is a process of removing dead skin cells, oil, dirt and pollutants, on the surface of the skin.  We must take the time to make this a part of our daily routine.  Cleansing is the primary step to glowing skin now and for the future!  Washing: Make sure you remove all your makeup before starting the cleansing steps.  BIOXAGE Milk Cleanser is a great natural makeup remover…with Almond Oil and Cucumber and Chamomile.  Always wash face morning and evening.  Washing removes dirt, sweat and pollutants on the skins surface.  If you have dry skin using coconut or olive oil is great also.  Rinse with warm water, do not use hot water as it can dry the skin even more.  If you have oily skin, a gel or foam cleanser is best. Always pat skin lightly and dry with a white cotton towel, which is very gentle on the skin.

The most important way to support glowing skin is to eat a diet full of vitamins, minerals, protein and carbohydrates.  Exercise daily and drink 8-10 glasses of pure spring water per day.  Water helps to remove all of the toxins from our bodies, as well as prevent skin breakouts. Regular intake of fruits and vegetables dramatically improves skin health.  Vitamin C rich fruits such as guava and papaya are especially beneficial as they strengthen skin cells.

Increased Benefits of Hot Stone Massage

Hot Stone Massage is a truly natural therapy, where warm stones are positioned for maximum therapeutic benefit. At Bioxage, we use river rocks with extremely smooth surfaces, our stones are heated in sanitizing water before your treatment.

Hot stone massages are beneficial on a physical level, as well as relaxing the mind. The benefits are:

Muscle Relaxation

Heat from the stones allow muscles to relax, allowing your massage therapist to manipulate deep tissues more effectively.  This works perfectly for muscles that are extremely tight or stiff, thus the heated stones providing extra relaxation and release of tension in sore muscles.

Pain Relief

While all types of massage can assist in relieving pain caused by tense muscles, stiff joints/injuries, a hot stone massage leaves you feeling physically better than a traditional massage!

Improved Circulation

As the heat from the stones are released, and penetrated into the body tissue, your blood vessels open up, resulting in improved circulation.  Thus increased circulation delivers more oxygen to the muscles, which can ease tension and tightness in targeted areas.

Mental Benefits

Massage therapy can result in mental benefits, as well as physical.  The total relaxation you experience in a hot stone massage definitely eases stress and tension, thus, imparting a feeling of ‘well being.’  While massage therapy is not a substitute for traditional medical care, it can be a great part of your regular treatment plan!!

What to do before and after your waxing appointment?

Just as important as any other body treatments, waxing requires proper preparation and aftercare. Although everyone that is not new to waxing has already mastered waxing101, we, at Bioxage have list down the most important things you need to know before and after your wax appointment.

Before

  1. Be prepared. Come to your waxing appointment with clean and dry skin, whatever waxing treatment you opt to choose. Exfoliate your skin, the night before the appointment to scrub off those dead skin cells that can clog hair glands and result in unwanted ingrown. It is also important to let your waxing therapist know exactly what or how you want your waxing to be done.
  2. Lessen the pain by taking some pain relievers 30-40 minutes before your appointment.
  3. Moisturize your skin daily before you wax.

After

  1. Avoid doing these things for at least 12 hours after your waxing appointment:
    • Sunbathing
    • Swimming in chlorinated water
    • Spa baths or saunas
    • Physical activities
  2. Avoid using topical lotions, perfumes or moisturizers on the waxed area
  3. Avoid wearing tight clothing like leggings, tight jeans or anything that may irritate the waxed area.

It is better not to touch the waxed area to make sure it remains bacteria free. Waxing aftercare is just as important as waxing itself, so it is vital to follow these simple things to ensure good waxing experience.

Now, it is also important to exfoliate and moisturize everyday 2-3 days after your waxing appointment. It is also advisable not to shave in between appointments and to reschedule every 4 weeks to achieve maximum waxing benefits.
