You'd have to be
living under a rock to not notice that looking
good is a big, BIG, B-I-G business.
Nowhere is this
more evident than in the area of someone's complexion.
Walk through the
cosmetics section of your favorite fine department store and
you'll see this first hand. Lancome, Clinique, Elizabeth Arden,
Origins, Chanel and many others give you a variety of ways to
hide every flaw and make you feel like a fashion model ready for
a magazine cover shoot.
Many people also
see a dermatologist, especially for acne. But one of the popular
dermatologist's solutions for acne is antibiotics. While they
can help prevent pimples, they also wreak havoc with the
friendly flora in your gut, harming your digestion and weakening
your immune system.
And then of course
there's the big NEXT step--the plastic surgeon's office. Their
offerings include laser resurfacing, Juvederm, Botox, Sculptra
and Radiance, to name a few.
nothing wrong with wanting to look your best, especially where
your face is concerned.
But many people
are oblivious to the fact that there are natural measures you
can take to make YOUR face look its best that are EXTREMELY
And they're a lot
cheaper than cosmetics and antibiotics, and WAAAY cheaper (and
far safer) than plastic surgery.
Here are the "Four Facial Favorites" that will help YOU look
your absolute best:
Your body needs
water from head to toe, and that includes your skin.
natural moisture and carries needed nutrients to your skin, and
sweeps away waste products, which in turn helps keep your
complexion soft and clear.
There are a
variety of factors that affect how much water the average person
needs (including exercise level and the amount of natural water
you get from foods), but a good place to start is to drink at
least 5-8 glasses a day.
A good way to tell
if you're drinking enough water is to look in the toilet bowl.
Your urine should be relatively clear and very light yellow. If
it's more opaque and dark yellow (at any time other than first
thing in the morning), you need more water.
Vitamin C cream on your face daily
suggest that Vitamin C applied externally to the skin may help
stimulate the growth of new collagen.
Applying Vitamin C
cream to your face can help plump up wrinkles, restore skin tone
and fill in small lines, giving you a more youthful, radiant
Vitamin C cream can also help protect your skin from UV light
damage and reduce some of the inflammation caused by UV
Look for creams
that contain a 10% concentration of Vitamin C. I use Avalon
Organics, but there are many great ones out there and
they're far cheaper than any fancy department store moisturizer.
3) Eat your
fruits and veggies
A recent six-week
study suggests eating produce is an all-natural way to make your
skin look more attractive.
rosier-looking skin was linked with an increase of just one
portion of fruit and vegetables a day. The researchers observed
that skin tone changes occurred over a relatively short time
They suggest it's
the carotenoids (the red, yellow, and orange pigments in fruits
and vegetables) that play an important role in your skin tone.
Foods such as
carrots, sweet potatoes, squash, and apricots are rich in the
carotenoid beta-carotene, as are some dark green vegetables,
including spinach and kale. Another carotenoid is lycopene,
which is found in tomatoes and pink grapefruits.
4) Keep your
pH more alkaline
All of your
organs, bones and tissues work ideally in an alkaline
environment (in other words, when you have a slightly alkaline
And that includes
your biggest organ--your skin.
Plus like the rest
of your body, your skin MUST get the nutrients and antioxidants
it needs to look and stay healthy.
So that means you
can't expect to look good if you eat junk and are toxic.
If you exist on
mainly processed food, fast food, soda or meal combinations that
create an acid pH in your system, you can count on a lousy
complexion and/or poor skin tone.
No matter how many
Juvederms you undergo.
Plus eating this
way reduces nutrient absorption, so your precious face (and the
rest of your body) will not be getting what it needs.
And all the makeup
in the world can't change that.
To look your best,
you HAVE to eat the foods that give your body the nutrients it
needs and keep acid wastes low.
Fruits. Lean meats and fish. Water. Nuts and healthy oils. All
in combinations that are easy for your body to digest.
And that is what
you will learn to do when you use the Great Taste No Pain system.

the exact foods to eat (and which ones to pair together) for

face naturally, and you'll be very happy when you look in the
And don't be
surprised when someone comes up to you and says, "Wow--you're
looking better and more radiant every day!"
To your health,
PS: To help
attain and maintain an alkaline pH and get nutrients your skin
needs to look its best, it's also crucial to have efficient
digestion. Sometimes a good diet isn't enough, especially if
you're under a lot of stress or take medications. Super Shield probiotic formula can help keep digestion
smooth and counteract the effects on your gut from stress and
medicines (especially antibiotics you may have taken for acne). Learn more about Super Shield here.
As we age, our
supply of digestive enzymes decreases. This is especially
true for people who eat lots of processed food and hard to
digest meals. Foods such as these require LOTS of enzymes to
break them down and over time your body's ability to produce
enough enzymes is diminished. Nothing can make you feel older
than gas, bloating, heartburn and constipation from ineffective
digestion and too few enzymes. Give your body the support it
needs and feel great inside with Digestizol Max natural digestive enzyme supplement. Learn more about Digestizol Max and all the ways it can help you
