Water Cleanse

I use only water to clean my face. And once in a month, I use facial soap. Some time ago I used to use the daily, and I found out especially in the summer that I could not resist sunburn. My natural skin oil is my sun block. Especially those who don't have an oily face skin can benefit from this advice.

Eating avocados improves your skin due to the natural oils present in the fruit. Try it, and in a few days you'll notice the difference.

Tomatoes have improved my skin. They also cure my low-intensity digestion problems. Whenever our skin does not look healthy-- pimples, etc, I and my wife found this very useful: First thing in the morning, take half a tomato. One full if it is small or a Roma tomato. Cut into 4 to 8 pieces. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper powder. Eat it. And do not eat anything for next 30 to 45 mins. That's all. Within 2-3 days, you should notice a change. If you do, continue for next 2-3 days. Make sure you eat it in the morning on an empty stomach. I guess is that it removes certain bacteria/ worms from the stomach and directly improves the skin. Hope it helps you too

Scrub your face with apricot scrub and drink a lot of water. Your pores open up and your dead skin is removed thus leaving your skin younger and cleaner.

I use an Apricot Scrub for an exfoliant every morning and night. I also wash with soap and HOT water, then a splash of cool water. I am 30 but people mistake me for being under 20.

Actually cantaloupe doesn't cure anything specifically, water does. Even with at least eight glasses a day, you most likely are not getting as much of the vitamins and minerals as you could. Drink truly filtered water, not Brita water. I use water filtered by a gravity filter which is guaranteed to remove all harmful chemicals and bacteria and more. I then water my organic vegetables and fruits with it, and they do wonders! No aftertastes, bigger, healthier plants, and cantaloupe so juicy it may seem to be a cure.

I use whole egg mayonnaise as a facial once or twice a week. Just smooth it onto face, neck, hands, leave for 20 minutes and then rinse off using warm water and a face washer. People always comment on how good my skin looks. When it is looking a little sallow, I just mix some lemon juice in with the mayonnaise and proceed as before.

Hi! Since I became a vegetarian my skin has improved very much. I used to have very oily skin and acne in my back as well. It's all gone thanks to whole yeast, plenty of fruit and vegetables every single day, lots of water, tofu and nuts. I walk 2 hours per day as well.

I exfoliate my face with lemon juice every other night. I also use a moisturizer and most importantly I eat lots of veggies, nuts, and fruit. I also take cod liver oil every other day, plus vitamin/mineral supplements. I don't smoke, I drink very little alcohol, and I use sunscreen. I'm 42 and people tell me I look like I'm in my late 20's

Smiling While You Moisturize

Make a big smile while cleansing, and moisturizing your face. There is something about the massaging effect of your face while it's in a smiling expression that makes it give off a beautiful glow. Also, smiling at your reflection while giving tender loving care to your skin somehow has a positive mental effect on your complexion, and your entire day!!

Flaxseed Oil

I started taking Flax Seed oil as an Omega 3 supplement. However, almost immediately I noticed that my skin became noticeably softer and more supple. I increased the dosage to 3x a day (my system had to get used to this, mind you, as it is a laxative) and I swear the wrinkles on my face are much less noticeable!

I get a facial whenever I can afford to. That's my secret to looking younger!

Witch Hazel, Coconut Oil

I cleanse my face before bed with Witch Hazel (natural toner) and apply organic coconut oil very lightly. My face is so smooth and soft. I am 50 and everyone thinks that I am in my late 30's. I also use coco butter alternately. Coconut oil applied directly on an acne area will dry up the sore. Have done it many times, it works great!
