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.

          How to Get “I Can’t Do It” Out of Your Vocabulary

          How to Get “I Can’t Do It” Out of Your Vocabulary

          When someone says, “I can’t do it” . . . I say to myself, “What do you mean you can’t do it?” Maybe you don’t want to do it, but saying you “can’t” do it is a completely different story.

          With the right mindset, positive attitude, and a clear vision of what you want to accomplish, the only thing that is holding you back is yourself.

          Can’t is a terrible word and it has to be taken out of your vocabulary.

          By saying you can’t do something, you’re already doubting yourself, submitting to defeat, and you’re making that barrier around your life tighter.

          So today, right now, we are going to remove this word for good.

          From now on there is nothing we can’t do.

          “Attitude is Tattoo”

          Your attitude is everything; it’s your reason, your why and how, your facial expression, emotions, body language, and potentially the end result. How you approach an opportunity, and the result of it, is solely based on you — not your boss or your co-worker or friend.

          If you enter a business meeting with a sour attitude, that negative energy can spread like wildfire. People can also feel it — maybe even taste it. This is not an impression you want to leave.

          Advertising

          Now imagine you enter a business meeting with a positive attitude, that whatever happens in here is going to be your result, in your control, not someone else’s. Of course, we can’t always win, but even if the outcome is negative, your attitude and perception can turn it into a positive. The question is: can you do it?

          Of course you can, because there is nothing in this world you can’t do.

          It’s much better to be known for your positive attitude — your poise, your energy, the reason why things go so well because you are able to maintain such character. A negative attitude is easy. It’s easy to complain, it’s easy to be mad, and it’s even easier to do nothing to change it.

          When I say your “attitude is tattoo”, it sounds permanent. Tattoos can be removed, but that’s not the point. Your attitude is like a tattoo because you wear it. People can see it and sometimes, they will judge you on it. If you maintain a negative attitude, then it is permanent until you change it.

          Change your attitude and I guarantee the results change as well.

          Believe You Can Do It

          Do you know why most people say “can’t” and doubt themselves before trying anything?

          It’s our lack of self-confidence and fear on many different levels. The one thing we have to purge from ourselves is fear — fear of bad results, fear of change, fear of denial, fear of loss, the fear that makes us worry and lose sleep. Worrying is the same as going outside with an umbrella, waiting for rain to hit it. Stop worrying and move on.

          Confidence is fragile: It builds up slowly, but can shatter like glass. Project your confidence and energy into believing in yourself. This is a very important and groundbreaking step — one that is usually the hardest to take. Start telling yourself you can do something, anything, and you will do it the best to your ability. Remove doubt, remove fear, and stick with positive energy.

          Embrace Failure

          Do not fear failure. Do not run away from it. Face it, learn from it, grow, and take action. Just remember: You will never know success if you have never failed.

          Your confidence will bolster after embracing these facts. You will be immune to demoralizing results, and instead you will find ways to fix it, improve upon it, and make it better than before. You will learn to never say “can’t,” and will realize how many more opportunities you can create by removing that one word.

          Don’t let one simple and ugly word plague your confidence. You’re better and stronger than that.

          Start Making the Change

          But to actually start the process of change is very challenging.

          Why is that?

          Fear? Time? Don’t know how — or where — to start?

          It’s hard because what we’re doing is unlearning what we know. We are used to doing things a certain way, and chances are we’ve been doing them for years.

          So here are some ways that I avoid using the word “can’t”, and actually take the steps to put forth the change that I wish to see. I hope you can incorporate these methods into your life.

          Advertising

          Write down What You Want to Change

          Write it on post-its, notecards, whatever makes you comfortable — something you will always see. I usually write mine on post-its and put them all over the wall behind my monitor so I always see them.

          Tell a Friend and Talk About It

          Discussing your goals, what you want to change, is very effective when you say it out loud and tell another person other than yourself. It’s almost like saying, hey, I bet I can do it — watch me.

          When you fulfill that goal and tell your friend, it feels rewarding and will motivate you to do it again in a different aspect. Who knows? Maybe your friend adopts the same mindset as you.

          Stop Yourself from Saying the Forbidden Word

          Sometimes,I can’t control myself in public when I’m with friends, so I have to be careful with the words I use so I don’t embarrass or insult anyone.

          Treat the word “can’t” as the worst word you can possibly use. Stop yourself from saying it, mid-sentence if you must, and turn your whole perspective around — you can do it, you will do it, and nothing is impossible!

          Repetition, Repetition, Repetition

          You think this change will be overnight? No way. This is a practice. Something you’re going to be doing for the rest of your life from now until forever.

          As I said earlier, you are unlearning what you know. You know how easy it is to say you can’t do something, so by unlearning this easy practice, you’re self-disciplining yourself to live without boundaries.

          Practice this everyday, a little at a time, and before you know it, the word can’t will not be part of your language.

          Do Anything That Can Relieve Your Uncertainty

          When I catch myself saying I can’t do something or I don’t know something, looking up information on that action or subject, doing research, educating yourself, relieves that uncertainty.

          Sometimes, we think we can’t do something because the whole idea of it seems too large. We skip the small steps in our head and only focus on the end.

          Before you say you can’t do something, rewind and slow down a little bit. Focus on what the first step is, then the next. Take it a step at a time, and before you know it you will have done something you previously thought you couldn’t do.

          Final Thoughts

          You know what you must do. The first step is right now. Once you begin this habit, and really start noticing some change, you’ll realize the door to opportunity is everywhere.

          The funny thing is: Those doors have always been there. The evil word that we no longer use put a veil over our eyes because that’s how powerful that word is.
