Do you wish you had skin to go naked in public?
Do you want to shed off years from your face?
I may not be the doctor with all answers, but I’ve struggled with my skin for years and once I found a routine that changed my skin I knew I needed to share it with others.
Here are a few tips to keeping your skin glowing no matter what age, no matter the time of year!
This year my husband and I changed our diet to all organic, or at least as much as possible, and immediately noticed changes in my skin. My secret weapon this year is Bone Marrow Broth and Pomegranates. Seriously amazing! I eat 1/3 to 1 full pomegranate a day at least 6 days a week. My favorite meal to include it in is Breakfast with Sigi’s yogurt (icelandic formula yogurt), organic almond granola and organic ground flax seed. Super amazing for you!

2. Bone Marrow Broth
Before winter came my husband and I decided that we would eat soup at least 3 days a week. I have actually enjoyed making soup from scratch and instead of water I use bone marrow broth. Bone marrow is incredibly beneficial for your skin, nails, eyes, and brain. Read more about the benefits of Bone Marrow Broth here: Article on Bone marrow broth from Shape.com
3. A strict regiment for your skin.
I used to fall asleep with my makeup on and wake up in the middle of the night on the couch only to crawl into bed with my mascara racing down my face. After college when I rented my first big girl apartment and for the first time in my life had buy a mattress, which seemed like the most expensive item ever, I decided to make some changes. Maybe some of you ladies are super regimented and disciplined about your life, not me. I made up rules to follow to trick myself into doing stuff I really didn’t want to. Like buying very expensive really white sheets to make sure that I would not ruin them by sleeping with my makeup on. It actually worked, no matter how tired I was, I would wash my face before going to bed just so that my fancy sheets and pillow cases would be stark white.
Point is, wash your face at night. Take your make up off. Allowing your skin to breathe and rest during the night is just as important as sleep itself is important, daily. You take the time to eat 3 times a day, and you know you need to work out to stay healthy, so I hope you get inspired to take your skin seriously this year too.
