SLEEPING BEAUTY | A GREAT WAY TO FLAWLESS SKIN?

Is sleep good for your skin? All of those extra hours of shut-eye could be the secret to flawless beauty! – or is this something just seen in the fairy tails? Over the next few days here at Beauty Naturalé we will look into the effect sleep has on our appearance. We will uncover how our nap time behaviour affects our appearance and if our slumber-some antics can actually be the key to everlasting beauty?

 

Sleeping Beauty, we all know the tale – the wicked old stepmother poisons the beautiful princess in a deep sleep for 100 years – the irony, when she awakes she is as beautiful and radiant as the moment her eyes shut – ok 100 years asleep isn’t a feasible option in todays busy world but maybe getting eight hours can be good for your complexion.

There’s evidence that a lack of sleep shows up on your face.

In a study published in the British Medical Journal, participants rated photos of sleep-deprived faces as less attractive, less healthy and more tired.

According to a Sleep Council survey, one in 10 women feel so tired it affects their appearance every day. Top tell-tale signs are shadows under the eyes (56%), washed out, pasty skin (55%) and bags under eyes (36%).

The survey found that 94% of women agreed that the best tonic to looking and/or feeling better was a good night’s sleep.

“Beauty sleep is not a myth,” according to Dr Sean Lannigan, medical director of the sk:n clinics. “When we sleep our bodies restore themselves. In fact the metabolic rate increases to replenish dead cells at the surface of the skin.”

 

So what can we do to help this natural process along? follow us this week for the best skin tips and advise when sleeping.

1) A large mixing bowl
2) Suitable moulds to shape the bath bombs
3) Kitchen scales
4) A hand sprayer containing clean cold water

SPRING BEAUTY | GREAT HOMEMADE SKIN CARE RECIPIE 01

Spring skin care is a must for soft skin, its vital that during this transitional period we prepare ourselves for this sudden change in climate to help avoid any unwanted blemishes or dryness. Today we have a fantastic home made recipe to help you exfoliate in preparation for these crisp, sun laden mornings.

 

Seasonal skin care during spring is especially important. For the next several months more of your skin will be seen than at any other time of year! Try these great spring skin care tips and recipes for healthy, beautiful skin.

Natural spring skin care recipe

An important step in any spring skin care routine is exfoliation. Using an exfoliating scrub will help eliminate rough skin left over from winter. Grapefruit is a common ingredient in body scrubs, but most manufacturers often use grapefruit oil instead of the actual fruit. Instead, give this homemade recipe perfect for spring skin care a try:

Combine the following in a blender:

  • 1/2 grapefruit, skin and all
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of sea salt for detoxification
  • 1/2 cup of olive or coconut oil

Massage the mixture onto your body using circular motions towards the heart. Leave the scrub on for a few minutes to let it absorb a little, rinse off thoroughly with warm water, then do a quick rinse with cold water to increase circulation.

SPRING BEAUTY | HOW TO HAVE GREAT SKIN THIS SPRING

“The days are getting longer and daylight is ever more present, off go the winter jackets and boots and out come the dresses and sandals!”

Spring is definitely on the way, the daffodils are out and the grim, wet, cold days will soon be nothing but a distant memory – or so we hope.  As we plan our new wardrobe equipped for the change in weather,  be sure not to leave your skin in the cold this spring. As the climate changes it can play havoc with our skin, but rest assured here at Beauty Naturale we have all the tips to help you stay beautiful and feeling great. Whether its to help tackle dry, scaly, rough, spots on heels, knees, and elbows or overheated, undernourished skin on your face and body all this week we will have the best professional insider advise, tips and treatments.

“Nothing is worse for skin than a long, cold winter — the low humidity in conjunction with hot air, heat, and less fresh air often can leave your skin looking dull, dry, rough, and even wrinkled and older,” says Cheryl Citron, MD, the past president of the New Jersey Dermatology Society.

Knees, elbows, heels, and toes can also suffer from a winter in boots — where too often, says Citron, what we don’t see, we neglect.

“When our feet and legs aren’t on display the way they are during warmer weather, we tend not to moisturise as much, and we don’t pay as much attention to things like dry cuticles; unfortunately, it doesn’t take long for skin that is neglected to react, becoming dry, dull, and flaky, and sometimes even red and inflamed,” Citron tells WebMD.

The good news: Beautiful, summer-sweet skin is closer than the nearest watermelon patch! The best place to start, say experts, is with a head-to-toe moisture treatment — and you don’t need high-priced products to do the job right.

The Best Moisturizer?

“One of the best moisturisers you can use is white petroleum jelly — particularly on the very roughest, toughest areas of skin, such as heels, elbows, and knees,” says Heidi Waldorf, MD, director of dermatologic laser surgery at Mt. Sinai Medical Center in New York City. And if you’ve ever heard that old wives’ tale about drenching feet in Vaseline and then donning a pair of white cotton socks — well, Waldorf says it’s not a myth and it really can dramatically change the way your feet look and feel, almost overnight.

“If you don’t like sleeping in socks, then just smear on the petroleum jelly right before you put on your gym socks and sneakers before working out, or even just to run errands,” she says. If hands are in equal need of a spring makeover, coat them with petroleum jelly as well, and then don a pair of white cotton gloves.

“Any time you are doing a household or garden chore that requires you to wear rubber gloves or gardening gloves, put on the petroleum jelly first, then the white gloves, then the rubber gloves over that,” Waldorf tells WebMD. By the time your chores are done, she says, you’ve given your hands a pretty terrific beauty treatment.
