Natural Anti Aging Beauty Secrets

Sun Protection

“Incorporate sun protection into your beauty routine – particularly as the weather warms. Sun protection will keep your skin looking great year-round as UV rays are the primary source of skin damage like age spots, wrinkles, sunburn, and skin cancer. Sun protection is the #1 thing you can do for your skin. To keep it natural, only use sunscreens that list zinc and/or titanium in the ‘Active Ingredients’ on their label. Any other ingredients listed there is a chemical UV filter. Also, be sure it says ‘broad spectrum’ on the label so you know you’re getting UVB and UVA protection. No matter how high the SPF level, if it doesn’t say ‘broad spectrum,’ then you’re only protected from UVB rays.”

Don’t Forget Your Hands

“We have had them in gloves all winter and were able to hide them, but with the transition to lighter gloves – or none at all – it’s more difficult to hide the dry brittle nails, overgrown cuticles, and sun spots. Let your hands match your face! Photofacial treatments combined with hand peels will help eliminate sun spots and stimulate the formation of collagen and elastin, leaving the hands looking younger, then treat yourself to a manicure!”

“Magnesium is a natural detoxifier and is a nighttime beauty trick that will give you restful sleep and radiant skin in the morning during the spring months. Take an Epsom salt mineral bath before you go to bed and drink some magnesium citrate powder mixed with hot or cold water. Magnesium is known as the anti-stress, anti-anxiety mineral. When you feel good and well rested, your skin will show it and you can go make-up free in the morning.”
