The Expensive Delicacy for Your Skin

Caviar, one of the most expensive delicacies in the world, can be one of your skin’s best friends. Why? Because it turns out that this expensive delicacy made of tiny processed and salted fish eggs can have many benefits to the skin. It is not new to us that people do facials, but have you done a caviar facial before?

According to dermatologist, Dr. Sejal Shah, the caviar extract that acts as a pampering beauty ingredient is not the roe itself, “it’s the stuffs that are around them.” The extracts have vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and fatty acids, as well as antioxidants. All these properties can do wonders to your hair, skin, and nails too! Amino acids can promote tissue repair, improving both the texture and tone of the skin. Omega 3 fatty acids are also found in caviar, which have anti-inflammatory properties. That is why some luxury creams out there contain caviar extracts, because they have anti-aging benefits.

Glow like a glow fish after a caviar facial! Caviar has the goodness of the sea, meaning it is rich in sea minerals. And these sea minerals have been proven to benefit the skin. Caviar is like your skin’s protein diet. Doing caviar facial regularly is like feeding your skin with proteins that will ensure rejuvenation of your skin to make you look younger and less tired.

After the caviar facial, don’t forget to apply your favorite nourishing cream or serum to bring out the best of your skin. 🙂

The Blooming Beauty

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, people (especially men) will go out of their way to get their significant other some flowers. And the most popular flower is the rose. Why? Because rose in general means beauty, admiration, and most importantly, love. But be careful about the colors you choose, because different colors have different meanings. But you could never go wrong with red, pink, and white roses.

Besides the meaning of affection, this iconic flower can also offer health and beauty benefits. Roses in distilled forms can be found in cosmetics, medicines and therapeutic treatments for centuries, and is still being used today. One of the reasons why I love roses is because of the fragrance. When used aromatically, the scent calms and soothes the mind. It sure makes the rose-scented lotion or perfume an extra pleasant experience.

Did you know that rose oil is abundant in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants such as Omega 3 and Omega 6? That is why they are great for rejuvenating the skin in numerous ways. They are anti-aging, which minimizes wrinkles, lighten age spots, and keep the skin firm. Natural oils found in roses help lock moisture into the skin, keeping the skin feeling smooth and moisturized.

Rose water is anti-acne! If you are the type that has breakouts easily, using rose water as a toner every morning and night would prevent breakouts. It has anti-inflammatory properties. It reduces puffiness and dark circles under the eyes, and helps cool and clean the eyes. Rose water can also act as a hair conditioner! Leave it on your hair and the hair will be free of split ends and dry free.

Rose water alone is not enough for your skin if you have really dry skin. After using rose water as a toner, apply your favorite face cream or moisturizer. One of the great products to use would be SwissZell.

Happy Valentine’s Day and stay beautiful!

Drinking Water Does Not Make Your Skin Look Better… WHAT?

Okay, so you’ve heard from many people that drinking water is good for your skin. So, like everyone else, you go home and drink as much water as you can. But does water really help you get better skin?

No one can deny the fact that drinking water is crucial to our everyday life. We need water. We cannot survive without water. In fact, the percentage of water in the human body ranges from 50-75%. Now that’s a lot of water! Its common sense to drink water every day to keep our bodies hydrated. But that doesn’t mean that the more water you drink, the better skin you will have. According to WebMD and other experts, water is good for the skin of someone who is severely dehydrated, “but the average person’s skin does not reflect the amount of water being drunk,” says Kenneth Bielinski, MD, a dermatologist in Oak Lawn, Ill.

A review by the dermatologist Ronni Wolf at the Kaplan Medical Centre in Israel found one study looking at the effect of long-term water intake on the skin. But the results were contradictory. After four weeks, the group who drank extra mineral water showed a decrease in skin density, which some believe the skin is retaining more moisture, while those who drank tap water showed an increase in skin density. But regardless of the type of water they drank, it made no difference to their wrinkles or to the smoothness of their skin.

Now I’m not telling you drinking water is not important. Our body needs a decent amount of water to prevent us from being dehydrated. Every day we lose water through our breath, perspiration, urine, and bowel movements. For our body to function properly, we must replenish its water supply by consuming beverages and foods that contain water. So, we should drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day to maintain our body hydrated and healthy.

Here are some tips to make your water consumption more pleasant:

  • Choose beverages that you enjoy drinking, besides alcoholic beverages.
  • Eat fruits and vegetables that are high in water content
  • Add some flavor to your water. Adding some sliced fruits will make your water taste fruity.
  • Find a partner to drink with you! That is, if you feel lonely drinking alone.

Oh, and don’t forget to drink some water after you finish reading this post.

Happy drinking… water!
