The sooner you start taking care of your skin the better! By the time you see changes you don’t like in your skin, a lot of damage has already been done.

 

The best way to slow the aging of many things in the human body, on a cellular level, is to keep body cells from oxidizing. And the best way to keep your body from needlessly oxidizing, experts say, is to avoid smoking and to eat a diet rich in antioxidants.

As we get older, our top skin priority becomes preventing wrinkles — and the No. 1 way to do this, of course, is NOT to tan.

Nearly every fruit (and many veggies) have antioxidants, vitamins, and other properties (like fruit acids) that are great for every skin type. In fact, when I started this blog, I began by trying to isolate different fruits and which types of skin they’d work best on.

You know what I found? Nearly every fruit is great for any skin type. Nearly all of them help treat acne. Nearly all of them help rid the skin of dead cells, which makes them great for dry skin. Nearly every one enhances complexion. And SO many of them, with time, help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and age spots.

Some of my favorite fruits/veggies to put on your face, just as they are, with nothing added:

  • Citrus: Lemon, orange, lime, tangerines – you can use the flesh/juice itself, or just rub the rinds on your face. Either way, don’t leave citrus on for more than 10-15 minutes. Also, it can cause photosensitivity (and lightening of the skin), so be wary of spending much time in the sun for a few hours after you’ve done this. Best for: Acneic and oily skin, as well as any skin with a lot of built-up dead skin cells. Be careful with broken skin, though.
  • Berries: Strawberries (great for any skin type, but especially acne), cranberry, grape (great for aging skin).
  • Fruits: Apples, mangoes, kiwi (especially!), papaya, banana, tomato (great for acne), pomegranate, pear.
  • Melons: Cantaloupe, honeydew, watermelon (great for dry skin and age spots).
  • Veggies: Eggplant (great for moles, as it’s anti-cancer), avocado (for dry and aging skin), pumpkin, potato (fabulous for acne and oily skin), lettuce, cucumber (for sensitive and dry skin), onions (for acne and oily skin).

Using the good Vitamin C serum every day is also a must!

It’s the ancestral secret of Japanese youth. Kobido, also referred to as Japanese facial massage, aims to rejuvenate your face by putting elasticity back into your skin. It originates from the traditional Japanese massage anma and is a combination of face and neck massage.

Kobido kicks off with an energizing phase, stimulating the energetic points of your face, and it finishes off with lymphatic draining (sliding movements) to get rid of toxins. So yes, a younger face is possible without surgery!

This technique lies in a mix of fast and slow hands’ movements to improve the deep circulation of the face, neck and upper chest part. To massage with different speed levels is essential since it permits to destroy dead cells and to foment elastin and collagen production, both so useful for our skin health. Like that, it is possible to obtain a real rejuvenation effect: wrinkles are smoothed, volumes are restored and of course, skin is brighter. After the first session, you already can see some results which increase in the medium and long-term.

LOOKING FEW YEARS YOUNGER IS NOT THE UNIQUE BENEFIT THAT KOBIDO FACIAL MASSAGE CAN PROVIDE. IT HAS OTHER BENEFICIAL POWERS FOR THE HEALTH:

  • Fights stress
  • Provides a complete relaxation and wellness
  • Reduces bruxism effects
  • Relieves headaches
  • Avoids facial rigidity
  • Decreases some digestive system problems
  • Improves the eyesight

Benefits: Kobido stimulates blood and lymphatic circulation, and consequently improves the quality of your skin. It liberates your face of muscular tension that’s responsible for the formation of wrinkles. In addition, your skin’s purified and moisturized.

Price: From $40 to $100 for 60 minutes, depending on where you go. This awesome treatment is very popular in Japan and France.

Not recommended if you use Botox or have skin inflammation.
