Healthy Tips

PUT A FRESH FACE FORWARD

  • Your face endures a lot — from wind and cold weather to pollution and the sun — every day! That's why it's so important to take care of your face now. You should gently cleanse your skin every day and use a daily moisturizer with an SPF of at least 15.

  •    In addition, why not consider splurging on the occasional facial? Besides deep-cleaning your skin, facials are incredibly relaxing. After an hour, your face will glow, you'll feel super mellow, and you'll definitely want to make your next appointment!

  •  You can also create a spa-like experience at home by donning your bathrobe, dimming the lights, and burning an aromatherapy candle while you cleanse your face with an over-the-counter deep cleanser, a purifying mask, or an exfoliating scrub. Apply a warm towel to your face when you're done, then smooth a light, vitamin-rich moisturizer onto your clean, dry skin. Then say, Ahhhhh!

  • And did you know you can get glowing skin at the dinner table too? What's on your plate can help keep your skin hydrated and supple. Cook a piece of salmon with a little olive oil for a delicious meal that will fight inflammation and beat dryness. For dessert, load up on berries! They are packed with polyphenols which fight wrinkles.   Keep your skin radiant!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       -Tips by Fran Boardman
