4 Natural Ways To Have Young Skin

4 Natural Ways To Have Young Skin

Have you felt self-conscious when watching all the skincare advertisements on TV, seeing all the women and their flawless skin? You touch your own; you might be perfect, however, a Photoshopped image seems to have a stronger control over your perspective. You stare in the mirror, reflecting on how you wish your skin could be or should feel. You run your fingers across your face, your hands, and your neck. Every freckle, every bump, every dot, you carefully examine and you dissect all the imperfections.

Healthy skin requires a healthy mind and body, and young skin requires substances that are more natural. Our cosmetics, creams, and anti-aging serums contain tons of chemicals, which eventually can cause our skin to become dependent. However, our ancestors kept a youthful glow by just using nature’s purest cosmetics.

That’s why I’ve decided to put together a few tips and tricks that will allow you to reach that goal of younger and healthier-looking skin. Fresh and young skin can definitely do wonders for one’s confidence.

    1. Tomatoes Are Both For Faces and Bloody Marys

    Bloody Marys are well known as a lovely summer drink. However, it’s always been less popular among certain crowds as it can remind one of pizza sauce with alcohol. Aside from being an ingredient in this summer beverage, tomatoes also do possess extensive qualities that tighten the skin’s pores and keep it fresh and young.

    Fortunately, you don’t need to spend a fortune in purchasing products for a tomato facial. Instead, go to the supermarket and choose the biggest and juiciest tomatoes. The juicer the better, as this makes for a smooth application. Cut the tomatoes into 4 halves and gently rub them all over your face.

    Rub clockwise and relax for the next 40 minutes. After washing your face, you’ll feel the difference. Practice this regularly, about three to four times a week, and you’ll start noticing the difference. This method guarantees fewer wrinkles, smaller pores, and tight skin that erases any thoughts of getting Botox.

      2. Turmeric Paste: An Ancient Indian Tradition

      Indians have always been known to the western world for having amazing flawless skin despite the heat. It’s definitely impressive that their skin remains soft, smooth, and fresh despite the grueling heat. Being part Indian, I’ve learned from a very young age that turmeric doesn’t only make curries taste good, but it’s also capable of making you look good.

      For this, you must use the purest form of Turmeric. Either purchase it as a root or walk to your nearest Bio Cosmetic store to purchase the powdered form. Use warm water, honey or yogurt, and 1 tablespoon of turmeric powder and mix them well. Apply it thoroughly all over your face, avoiding your eyes and lips as those are extremely sensitive areas. Wash it off after 20 minutes to avoid your skin from yellowing.

      If you’re extremely sensitive, do consult your dermatologist before using turmeric as a form of facial. After you practice applying it once every week for a month, you’ll be able to see the changes, as your skin looks softer and fresher than before.

        3. Placenta Pills: There’s A Reason Why Celebrities Use Them

        Have you ever wondered why Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, and other celebrities prefer turning their placentas into tiny tablets? Well, the reason is that the placenta contains high amounts of collagen, as it’s the sole provider of nutrients to the fetus. Placenta as a medication for beauty and prosperity has long been practiced in ancient Chinese medicine. It’s known for possessing anti-aging qualities which, to this day, is still sought after.

        Fortunately, science has made it possible for anyone to use placenta pills as an anti-aging regimen. Using placentas from mammals such as cows and sheep, it is now easier for many of us to use these pills. Rest assured that placenta pills are made naturally with no chemicals, however the best advice is to always do your own research before purchasing.

        It’s been proven that consistent use tightens your skin and reduces cellulite. This gives you a younger appearance and can lead to higher self-esteem.

          4. Cucumbers and Sleep

          It’s surprising that the key to younger-looking skin is usually the simplest regimen. Sleep and cucumbers are the best remedies for a tired face. One housemate of mine even sleeps for eight whole hours with cucumbers on her eyes. Whenever I see her, she still looks as young as the last time I saw her.

          When you sleep, your body replenishes its dead tissues and your skin cells regenerate for another day. However, in our busy world, sleep has become a luxury, therefore our body, mind, and especially our skin suffers. Always try to get a good night’s rest and use cucumbers to help you avoid dark circles around your eyes.

          Confidence is something which develops over time and comes with being comfortable in your own body. Use these tips to help you put your best and healthiest face forward.

          10 Ways To Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone And Enjoy Taking Risks

          10 Ways To Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone And Enjoy Taking Risks

          The ability to take risks by stepping outside your comfort zone is the primary way by which we grow. But we are often afraid to take that first step.

          In truth, comfort zones are not really about comfort, they are about fear. Break the chains of fear to get outside. Once you do, you will learn to enjoy the process of taking risks and growing in the process.

          Here are 10 ways to help you step out of your comfort zone and get closer to success:

          1. Become aware of what’s outside of your comfort zone

          What are the things that you believe are worth doing but are afraid of doing yourself because of the potential for disappointment or failure?

          Draw a circle and write those things down outside the circle. This process will not only allow you to clearly identify your discomforts, but your comforts. Write identified comforts inside the circle.

          2. Become clear about what you are aiming to overcome

          Take the list of discomforts and go deeper. Remember, the primary emotion you are trying to overcome is fear.

          How does this fear apply uniquely to each situation? Be very specific.

          Are you afraid of walking up to people and introducing yourself in social situations? Why? Is it because you are insecure about the sound of your voice? Are you insecure about your looks?

          Or, are you afraid of being ignored?

          3. Get comfortable with discomfort

          One way to get outside of your comfort zone is to literally expand it. Make it a goal to avoid running away from discomfort.

          Let’s stay with the theme of meeting people in social settings. If you start feeling a little panicked when talking to someone you’ve just met, try to stay with it a little longer than you normally would before retreating to comfort. If you stay long enough and practice often enough, it will start to become less uncomfortable.

          4. See failure as a teacher

          Many of us are so afraid of failure that we would rather do nothing than take a shot at our dreams.

          Begin to treat failure as a teacher. What did you learn from the experience? How can you take that lesson to your next adventure to increase your chance of success?

          Many highly successful people failed plenty of times before they succeeded. Here’re some examples:

          5. Take baby steps

          Don’t try to jump outside your comfort zone, you will likely become overwhelmed and jump right back in.

          Take small steps toward the fear you are trying to overcome. If you want to do public speaking, start by taking every opportunity to speak to small groups of people. You can even practice with family and friends.

          Take a look at this article on how you can start taking baby steps:

          6. Hang out with risk takers

          There is no substitute for this step. If you want to become better at something, you must start hanging out with the people who are doing what you want to do and start emulating them. (Here’re 8 Reasons Why Risk Takers Are More Likely To Be Successful).

          Almost inevitably, their influence will start have an effect on your behavior.

          7. Be honest with yourself when you are trying to make excuses

          Don’t say “Oh, I just don’t have the time for this right now.” Instead, be honest and say “I am afraid to do this.”

          Don’t make excuses, just be honest. You will be in a better place to confront what is truly bothering you and increase your chance of moving forward.

          8. Identify how stepping out will benefit you

          What will the ability to engage in public speaking do for your personal and professional growth? Keep these potential benefits in mind as motivations to push through fear.

          9. Don’t take yourself too seriously

          Learn to laugh at yourself when you make mistakes. Risk taking will inevitably involve failure and setbacks that will sometimes make you look foolish to others. Be happy to roll with the punches when others poke fun.

          10. Focus on the fun
