Today’s post is focused on how to get you the best skin possible without using products. I definitely think products can help skin out, but getting nice dewy and healthy skin, in my opinion, is easiest to create when following a healthy diet, utilizing a few beauty tips and DIY recipes. You’ll be surprised at how effective some of these really are. so without further delay, here are some tips on how to get flawless skin naturally. 

EAT HYDRATING FOODS FOR GLOWING SKIN

Achieving glowing skin can seem impossible at times, and yes you can always fake it with makeup, but to get authentically glowing skin, I highly recommend a diet high in fruits and veggies, especially berries. They have very high concentrations of antioxidants, help keep your body hydrated (which in turn, hydrates your skin), and they are high in vitamins and nutrients essential to repairing and maintaining healthy skin. To learn more about the benefits of berries for your skin, check out the original post I did on this here. Aside from berries, there are a ton of hydrating foods you can consume to up the hydration of your cells and therefore your skin. Check out a list I’ve made of these foods – here.

 

DIY TONERS TO CALM REDNESS & INFLAMMATION

I used to think I needed some kind of magical product to fix my skin, but after much experimentation, I find that a nice DIY recipe works just as well, if not better, and I am left with a lot more cash in my pocket at the end of it all. One thing that I definitely deal with a lot, especially in the Summer time, is redness. The most effective treatment for this, by far, are toners and you can make a number of them with ingredients you already have in your kitchen. Check out the DIY toner recipes – here.

SUPPLEMENT FOR GREAT SKIN

Although we can do everything right, including eat well, sometimes I think it’s still pretty difficult to get all the nutrients our skin and body need to function at optimal levels. Because of this, I think supplements can be very beneficial to our systems, especially in resolving skin problems such as acne, dry skin, redness, and other issues. For a list of essential supplements for beauty and health, check here. There are many benefits to be gained from taking supplements, especially for preventing premature aging and treating existing issues. To see the beauty benefits of vitamins, check here.

 

PLANT OILS IN SKINCARE

You’re probably really familiar with the idea of using plant oils in skincare as many brands have begun to utilize these in their product formulations, but did you know that they can be just as beneficial used on their own? Some of you may still be wary of using oil on your skin, but don’t be. Choosing the right oil for you skin type, which you can do – here – is all you need to find the perfect plant oil that will benefit you the most. There are tons to choose from for any skin type from dry to sensitive to oily. To learn more about using oil in skincare, check out this post and if you’re unsure about how to use natural plant oils for the best results, you can get more information in this post that will help you.

I hope these tips were helpful to you in your quest for skin perfection!

COR Silver Soap – The Beauty Box

Having acne freaking SUCKS.

As someone who suffers from frequent breakouts, blackheads and often troubled skin, I can totally relate which is why I’m super excited to share this amazing facial cleansing bar with you all today.

If you have acne prone skin, especially if you deal with oily to combination skin, this is a great facial soap bar to have on hand.

First off, special thanks to The Beauty Box for sending over the small sample of this amazing soap!

If you’re unfamiliar with COR Silver Soap, it’s not just any soap bar.  Formulated with patented ingredients and delivery system, this soap includes a variety of powerful ingredients such as their patented CSC compound (Collagen, Sericin, & Chitosan) , Vitamins A & E, various nourishing oils such as jojoba and avocado, hyaluronic acid, and, of course, Silver. Known for it’s use in medicinal healing of burns, silver blocks the survival of bacteria in cell walls because it prevents oxygen from being transferred to it, thereby stopping it and essentially killing acne causing bacteria in your skin. It’s patented delivery system allows the nourishing ingredients such as vitamins A & E, hyaluronic acid and nourishing plant oils to be absorbed into the skin while silver-silica help kill bacteria and ensure absorption of the beneficial ingredients this soap has to offer.  Their patented CSC compound – Collagen, Sericin & Chitosan is specially developed using Japanese advanced skin technology. Collagen is derived from sustainable marine collagen and helps add a more youthful appearance to skin while sericin, a natural protein derived from silk, helps to form a protective layer on the skin that works to protect the skin from the effects of the sun, and chitosan, a natural fibre, works to even out skin tone and balance skin’s oil production.

Their super high tech science aside, this is likely the best facial cleansing bar I’ve ever tried. I really am not a huge fan of using bar soap, generally, because most of them include harsh detergents and very little beneficial ingredients so all they do is strip the skin of it’s natural oils and protective layer. Many of them can actually cause more acne or worsen preexisting acne, but this facial cleansing bar is one of a kind.

When I use this to wash my face, I do so after I’ve already oil cleansed any makeup or sunscreen off my face so it’s the second stage of cleansing for me, but you can use it as it suits you. The bar lathers really nicely, but feels more creamy and clarifying instead of stripping like most soap bars. Sometimes I leave it on for 5 minutes to let the ingredients absorb into my skin a bit more, but you don’t need to do that. It’s just a step I do when I want my skin to be extra clean without the hassle of a face mask or any extra work. When rinsed off, this doesn’t make my skin feel tight or dry, just clean and supple. I actually notice a huge difference in my skin after using this for a few weeks. My skin looks clearer and even toned, I’ve experienced less breakouts, and my blackheads actually seem to be diminishing slowly which is a huge selling point for me! I don’t know about you guys, but nothing gets my blackheads to even budge so that really impresses me a lot!

Overall, this is a solid cleansing bar that I will definitely be repurchasing once I run out of because it’s that awesome. I highly recommend this to anyone suffering from acne, especially if your complexion is really oily or just really imbalanced, going from dry to oily. I have acne prone combination skin that is often sensitive and this doesn’t dry me out or irritate my skin. It cleanses really well without stripping my skin and definitely helps clear my pores out. Although I’m still partial to cleansing balms, this is definitely something I’d incorporate into my weekly skin regimen or even just keep on hand for when my skin breaks out because you can see the results overnight where breakouts are concerned.
