The Mediterranean Diet and Clear Skin

When it comes to having clear skin free of pimples and breakouts, its important to take note of the kinds of foods that you are eating on the regular. With the Mediterranean diet, you will not only benefit your body by eating foods healthy for you, but also foods that promote your overall skin's health. The foods you put into your body will affect the way not only your body looks, but also how your skin will look in general. If all you eat is junk food and processed foods, sweets etc, you will start to notice that your skin texture, tone and overall health will suffer.

Whenever I think of the word 'diet', I immediately envision something that people only do temporarily for a short amount of time to get temporary short-lived results. With the Mediterranean diet, its more of a way of life. With this way of eating, you eat only wholesome foods rich in

2015 Skincare Routine: How I got Rid of Dark Marks on My Skin

If you struggle with acne and you want to get rid of and fade the dark marks on your skin. Do not give up! The truth is, it is possible to fade your hyper-pigmentation from your face. If you always leave your house with your face layered in foundation, fear not, there will be one day where you will be able to freely run errands, go shopping or to the gym with a bare face. The most important thing is for you to know how important your skincare routine is in order to succeed. I struggled for years with post-acne hyper-pigmentation and there were many people who judged me for it and made recommendations for products that didn't work. I wasted so much money on useless ''acne curing'' products and I decided to finally take matters into my own hands and through trial and error I have been able to fade and get rid of most of my acne scarring and dark marks. My wish is that I can also help you to do the same. Keep reading if you want to find out more of what worked for me.



The Skincare Routine That Helped Me To Get Rid of Dark Marks

Minimize Large Pores and Get Rid of Blackheads

Large pores, acne and blackheads can affect the way you feel about your skin. When you have large pores, blackheads and breakouts, you might become very self conscious about the way you look in pictures and up close whenever you are talking to someone ( I know I did ). If you wear makeup such as foundation, powder or blush, then you will also notice your breakouts and pores might look even larger, more noticeable and not at all flattering.

The Best Product to Get Rid of Large Pores & Get Younger Looking Skin

Enlarged Pores can be such a nightmare to deal with. If you have large pores, you know how hard it is to get rid of them and how frustrating it can be to spend lots of money on products that promise to deliver results - yet fall short of doing so. I am here to tell you that if you have given up ( like I did at one point ) there's hope! The product I've been using every night before I sleep is the Makeup Artist Choice Gly-luronic acid serum.

http://makeupartistschoic.refr.cc/KFG6576


The product itself contains 15% Glycolic acid as well as 50% Hylauronic acid serum and after using this product for about 30 days I can without a doubt tell you that I saw results in as little s 2 weeks. The best part of this is that the Gly-Luronic serum stopped all my breakouts ( my skin doesn't breakout that much, however if yours does this serum can definitely help with that ). I also noticed

2 Things That Work to Get Rid of Rough and Uneven Skin Texture

If you are suffering from rough and uneven skin texture as well as dry patches of skin then its a  MUST for you to continue reading this post. Having rough and uneven skin is troublesome for many people (yes this includes both men and women). When you have rough looking skin that also has dry patches then you probably know especially as a woman this can be problematic. - Even more so  if you happen to wear makeup/cosmetics. When you have rough looking skin with enlarged and raised pores and dry patches wearing makeup such as foundation and powder can actually make you look worse! Your overall look would be cakey and unflattering and the makeup will be very noticeable. If you do not wear makeup but have uneven and rough looking skin, you are more than likely to become self-conscious and your confidence will also suffer.

The best way to get  rid of rough skin and dry patches is:

1. Glycolic Acid Peels!

I was able to get rid of my large pores and rough skin by doing regular Glycolic acid peels. I tried both 40% and 30% and figured out that my skin reacts better to 30% Glycolic acid peels done 1x a week and only left on for 5 minutes maximum. Without a doubt I will say that Glycolic acid peels have changed my skin for the better and I will never do without them. EVER.

Get Younger Looking Skin Without Spending A lot of Money!

If you want young looking brighter skin, fear not, I have you covered. It's never too early to start taking the steps to ensure that your skin looks its best whether that be at 18, 20, 30+ . Remember when it comes to skin care, prevention is better than correction as it takes more effort and time to repair any damage that has already been done. Aging is inevitable and will happen to all of us, however some people tend to look much older than their real age due to the fact that they do not use the right products or take proper care of their skin. Ever seen somebody who is 30 but looks 45? I have, and its a fact of life that how you look is very much influenced by your skin's health, - after all, your skin is the largest organ on your body!!

Your skin will never benefit from habits such as smoking and excessive drinking so its best to already realize this and make an effort to discontinue/slow down on doing these things. Genetics also play a major role in the way you will age and how your skin will look overtime. If you are feeling hopeless, -fear not because you do not have to be a celebrity with top cosmetic surgeons on speed dial or access to high end spas in order to keep your skin looking fresh, young and bright. There is a product that you can use that costs less than $20 that will go a long way in keeping your skin youthful without the hefty price tag of spa visits and cosmetic surgery.

What is this product you might be asking. Some of your might have heard of it...drum roll please...That product is Hyaluronic acid serum!! If you want to improve the texture and tone of your skin, then this is definitely a serum that you can not afford to miss out on.

The brand I love the most is the one by Cosmedica Skincare. The Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum from this particular company is one of the best simply because it does not contain the pore clogging and skin irritating additives and it is also paraben free! I once used a different hyaluronic serum from another company and it contained sodium benzoate which caused my skin to break out into a rash that lasted 2 weeks! My skin ended up looking like a crocodile so from now on I will only use the Cosmedica Skincare Hyaluronic acid serum simply because it contains natural and organic ingredients and has never irritated my skin or made me break out!

Some of the mentioned benefits of Hyaluronic acid serum include but are not limited to:
  • Contains proven anti-aging ingredients that fill-in and diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Get visibly plumper, softer and smoother skin.
  • Improves the look of uneven skin tone 
  • Heals and repairs dry skin with intense hydration
  • Helps to brighten the complexion and get rid of dark marks on skin
  • Treats under-eye puffiness
