THE PRESCRIPTION FOR GLOWING SKIN


Let's face it, we all want that healthy glowing skin, right? Well, we have the prescription for you...and it's not as intensive as you might think. Use these 5 easy tips, and you'll be well on your way to that perfect glow!

1. Sleep

An average of 7-8 hours of sleep. We have all experienced it, a poor nights sleep, and the next morning we notice hanging eyelids, swollen eyes, darker under-eye circles, paler skin, more wrinkles and fine lines, more droopy corners of the mouth, etc. When we sleep we are detoxifying our entire body, including out skin, so as part of any healthy skin regimen, sleep should be at the top of your list. 

2. Beauty food

Plant-based, hydrating, anti-inflammatory foods. Filling your life with an abundance of colors will ensure you are getting a variety of micronutrients to support healthy glowing skin. If you need more guidance, meet with one of our nutrition experts and for a virtual consultation and receive your own personalized skin nutrition treatment plan.

3. Beauty supplements

There are many supplements promoted as the perfect beauty food, but two of my current favorites are He Shou Wu, a yin tonic herb that supports blood, vitality and rejuvenation. And Tocotrienols, Tocos for short, is a fat soluble rice bran that is a bio-available sources of the Skin-superfood, Vitamin E. Tocos makes a delicious and creamy addition to your favorite smoothie or in your morning coffee/tea. Find them both in our boutique under the Sun Potion line.

4. Daily dose of herbal blend

The advantage of working with a board certified clinical herbalist is that you will ensure you are receiving a customized treatment plan to address the root cause of your signs and symptoms. There are incredible botanicals or plant medicines that individually have many benefits, however, when these are combined into a custom formula those same properties are elevated and enhanced. Schedule your personal virtual herbal consultation to find the perfect formula to support glowing skin. 

 

5. Glow Facial Oil

If you are passionate about skincare, chances are you have tried your share of finishing oils. Your search ends here. This incredible, plant-based, cruelty free, green beauty finishing oil is the perfect combination of hydration, primer and face food. Glow contains so many amazing properties and ingredients like squalene oil, sunflower oil, lavender, camomile, rosemary, CoQ10, and much more. Find it in our boutique or online and pair it with your favorite gua sha morning ritual.
