Two New Superfoods You Can Eat for Breakfast – And Smear on Your Face

Superfoods Skincare

You might be thinking of oatmeal, and you’d be close, but it’s actually what goes in your breakfast that’s been linked to improving your complexion – and many other things. Cinnamon and honey are the new power couple of SuperFoods.

A Study in Cinnamon

Several studies have shown that eating cinnamon daily can lower LDL cholesterol, regulate blood sugar, and relieve arthritis pain. The spice is also a great source of manganese, fiber, iron, and calcium. Regulating blood sugar means that cinnamon can help you overcome sharp cravings while dieting and keep your energy even throughout the day, but that’s not all it does. It’s a potent anti-oxidant that can help your body maintain a youthful appearance too. Put some in your morning coffee, in your oatmeal, or both, for a delicious start to your day.

Oh Honey, Honey

Honey may be sweet, but it’s in a whole new class when compared with sugar and artificial sweeteners. It’s rich in antioxidants, and while being more calorie-dense than sugar, studies have shown that eating honey every day can lower cholesterol and even help you lose weight. Other research is showing links between honey and improving memory and reducing anxiety. And that’s just when you eat it. Try wearing it!

Some home facial recipes recommend using honey topically, so not only can you spread it on your toast, you can spread it on your face to heal and prevent breakouts. As a natural antimicrobial and antioxidant, studies have shown that honey helps prevent infection when applied to wounds and burns, and it can also be used as a gentle facial mask – if you don’t mind some stickiness. Add a little cinnamon to the mask to increase its effectiveness.


Special Event Skincare: How to Ensure Gorgeous Skin When You Need it Most

Have a special evening out coming up? An awards event, charity dinner, or even a wedding? Ladies know it takes weeks to properly prep and primp for an important event, but while you’re hitting the gym and counting calories to fit into your dress, you should also be thinking about skincare. Here’s how to help your skin look its best from the inside out.

Work those Super Foods

Include more spinach and kale in your diet to increase antioxidants and vitamin C. In fact, a spinach, kale, and mandarin orange salad is a terrific combination. Vitamin C reduces redness and scarring, and will improve your immune system so you don’t get sick before the occasion!

Choose your skincare products carefully

Adopt a consistent skin care regimen using products that meet your skin’s unique needs. Not sure what cleanser, eye cream or moisturizer is best for you? Ask us and we’ll be happy to recommend our favorites for your skin type. Here’s a tip: to help with puffiness, refrigerate your eye-cream! It’s better than a cucumber.

Be gentle

Only have gentle facials for the month prior to the event, like a peel four weeks before, or microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion is a great option since the machine is designed to stimulate collagen and improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scarring, helping you look naturally fresh and youthful. Our facials never cause clients to leave looking red and we are careful to not over-exfoliate your skin.  

If you’re planning to wear a sexy, skin-baring outfit, consider the Red Bamboo Back Facial – it helps repair sun damage, and calms, clears and polishes the skin on your back. Perfect for strapless or backless  dresses!
