Let UR skin speak Volumes about your health

Not everyone is blessed with beautiful or even close to flawless looking skin. With that being said, peer-pressure can also get the best of you, especially in a competitive atmosphere such as a meeting or party. U R what you eat and UR skin shows it.

Water purifies UR skin by flushing out toxins, resulting in reduced inflammation and water retention You can also calculate how much water UR body needs by using this handy formula. UR weight (in kgs) X 0.033 = how much water you should be drinking in a day.
Vitamin C-rich fruits like lemon, orange and pineapple help you maintain the integrity of UR skin’s texture and elasticity. The best part about vitamin C-rich fruits is you can eat them or even apply them directly on U R skin as a mask.
Green tea is rich in antioxidants and is highly recommended for glowing skin. It is also known to remove toxins from your body and has an anti-inflammatory effect. Consume before 4pm. Place the used tea bags in the fridge so they can be used as an eye pack when UR eyes are tired or puffy.
Almonds and walnuts are loaded with vitamin E and selenium, which protect your skin from harmful U.V. rays and boosts immunity. Zinc and selenium in nuts are excellent antidotes for acne. Use almond oil as a natural body moisturiser post UR shower and dab dry with a towel lightly.
Sweet Potato is a superfood with excellent antioxidant properties in the form of beta-carotene, that converts into vitamin A which repairs UR skin cells.
