Updated Summer Skin Care Routine

Hi everyone! Just uploaded a new video to my channel and this one is about the products I currently use for my skin. It has been highly requested so I hope that you find it helpful. Trying to get up as many of these requested ones since I know you've been waiting for them. These are my HG skin care products, but as I also mention in the video, eating healthy foods is as important, if not, MORE important than the products we use. A healthy beautiful body starts from within :)

These are the products I mentioned:
- Neutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser / Mask
- Chamomile Green Tea Eye Makeup Remover, Earth Science
- Alba Botanica AcneDote Toner
- Acne.org Treatment 
- Acne.org Moisturizer 
- Aveeno Positively Radiant SPF 30 Daily Moisturizer 
- Virgin Organic Argan Oil
I also have a video on my weekly facial routine which you can find here: 


What are the best foods for healthy skin? (from MayoClinic.com)

Answer

from Lawrence E. Gibson, M.D.

Research on the best foods for healthy skin is limited. Still, antioxidant-rich foods seem to have a protective effect for the skin.

Consider these skin-friendly foods: 
  • Carrots, apricots, and other yellow and orange fruits and vegetables 
  • Spinach and other green leafy vegetables 
  • Tomatoes 
  • Blueberries 
  • Beans, peas and lentils 
  • Salmon, mackerel and other fatty fish 
  • Nuts 
  • ALSO: Avocados, citrus fruits, whole grains

On the flip side, some foods seem to be associated with skin damage. For example, some research suggests that a diet high in processed or refined carbohydrates and unhealthy fats promotes skin aging.

Remember, many of the best foods for healthy skin also promote good health overall. Rather than focusing on specific foods for healthy skin, concentrate on a healthy diet in general. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. Choose low-fat or fat-free dairy products. Include nuts, seeds and beans in your favorite meals. Opt for whole-grain breads and pasta. Limit sweets. Strive for variety as you're making healthy choices.
