The Glow comes from within, too.
There are women with a naturally bright complexion, they don’t need to make any effort, don’t need to wear makeup… There’s some luck involved of course, genetics, but maybe it’s also a matter of health practices… So do not think I’m gonna turn into a “naturopath-guru-gwynethpaltrow”, but there are some tricks you can do and even if they give you just the slightest glow, they definitely can’t hurt you.
- Drink a lot! (of water!) Your skin needs hydration from within as well. And a well-moisturised skin will clearly be more elastic, well-rounded, more radiant. Again, be careful with what’s inside tap water, like limestone and other harmful substances. But since the time of bottled water is thankfully coming to an end, there are solutions to make your tap water healthier. Binchotan charcoal, ceramic beads (clay enriched with effective microorganisms), filters, Kangen fountains… There are plenty of solutions, just choose the one that’s the most suited for your needs and habits.
- Drink green tea. Its antioxidant concentration is great for your organism, which your skin is part of. Free radicals are bad for your body, inside AND outside. Green tea clears toxins from your skin, and thus improves complexion radiance of all skin types. In addition to being lovely, Le Bénéfique green tea is very good.
- Take food supplements. The nutritional supplement by Ma Thérapie is a helpful ally in your quest for the Glow. It contains a perfect blend of grape seed, turmeric and guess what… green tea 🙂 – among others. It’s easy to take, it doesn’t take any effort except swallowing 3 capsules a day.
- Have a balanced diet (bad fat, sugar and dairy are often a source of many skin problems) : A) lots of fruits/vegetables rich in carotene like apricots, mangoes and carrots, B) some nuts are known to be a glow booster (hazelnuts, almonds), C) crudités that provide a healthy dose of vitamins, along with high quality vegetable oils (olive oil, wheat germ oil)
- Get some fresh air. If unfortunately your city is polluted, or you don’t have a chance to go for long walks in the pine forests of the French Landes, you must know that there is a healthy alternative within everybody’s reach : the Bol d’air Jacquier – literally meaning a lungful of fresh air! You can do a treatment in an approved centre (La Superbe, for instance). In one sitting of 1 to 4 minutes, your organism will get as oxygenated as if you had a several hour stroll in the forest. It’s beneficial for all your body tissues, beneficial for your health in general and surely, for your skin. Give it a try. Find out more here (in French)
- Have detox cures (green juices, birch juices, broths…). There are many ways you can detoxify your organism, and it’s likely to show on your skin. Here’s a tasty recipe you can try, for 2 servings: 2 apples, 1/2 zucchini, 1cm of ginger, 1/2 lemon, 1/2 cucumber, 1 branch of celery, 1 piece of fennel, 1/2 green bell pepper. Put all these in a juicer and voilà! This juice is a very good liver cleanser.
