Looking always young and beautiful is every woman’s dream, but normally this desire remains a dream for the most of us. Once you start to age, it seems like there’s nothing much you can do about it. But that’s totally wrong. Ever wondered why there are some ladies a lot of 40 – plus that look like are in their twenties or early thirties.
You may find these inner and outer beauty tips brilliant as they cost next to nothing using ingredients from your kitchen cabinet or fruit/vegetable rack.
Beetroot and carrot juice
So, two super beauty juices with masses of health benefits are beetroot and carrot juice.
Beetroot lowers blood pressure, feeds hair follicles ensuring you have luscious, shiny hair and is classed as an aphrodisiac. In case you don’t like beetroot, you better train yourself to adore it since everything is mind over matter.
One fat beetroot, two generous glasses of water, good squeeze of lemon juice, a tsp of fresh grated ginger and black pepper/celery salt to taste. This will make two glasses of beetroot juice which I recommend you drink once a week.
The recipe for carrot juice is exactly the same – and again two glasses should be drunk, on a different day to beetroot juice, once a week. The reasons you should drink carrot juice are as follows: since the liver is the first major organ that all foods pass through we need to ensure it stays cleansed to eliminate toxins from the body. A healthy liver helps to prevent cancer and heart disease and the carotenoids present in carrots act as antioxidants so they slow down aging process – and all that from the humble carrot.
3 tips for once a week application
– you can pick up a pot for a couple of dollars but it will give your skin the radiance of a celebrity walking the red carpet. All you need is a cherry size dollop which you’ll massage into your skin for five minutes – and don’t forget your neck and decolte. Take the residue off with a tissue and prepare to exfoliate.
Once a week exfoliation is a must to get rid of dead skin and liven up the complexion. It’s also so easy it takes thirty seconds to mix. All you need is a tablespoon of extra virgin oil and a generous teaspoon of white sugar. Mix to a paste, apply to the face, neck and decolte, gently massage for a few minutes (without dragging skin) then rinse off with warm water.
Now for an absolutely fantastic mask for which you need 2/3 cup of white sugar, 2 teaspoons acai powder, (you can buy acai powder in health shops), 1 tablespoon of olive oil and around ten mixed berries. Whisk them all together and you’re ready to go.
Berries are a rich source of antioxidants as well as being slightly astringent so they tighten your skin and minimize pores. Combined with the acai powder which combats hyperpigmentation you have an extremely powerful beauty mask. Leave it on your face for five minutes, wash off and voila – super, scrumptious, luminous skin.
