Honey has been used for centuries as a natural beauty aid all over the globe. This sweet substance has been used since ancient times both medicinally and for beautifying purposes. It was a key ingredient in the beauty concoctions of the Ancient Greeks and Egyptians and was known for its antiseptic properties. Honey has been used in Chinese medicine since the 6th century B.C.

Eating certain foods can affect the health and appearance of our skin. Nuts such as raw almonds make a great snack and have a myriad of health benefits. I love snacking on raw almonds during the day to give me an instant energy boost. These nuts are a fantastic source of phosphorous, zinc, folic acid, proteins, calcium, and nourishing vitamin E. Vitamin E can help protect your skin from the sun’s damaging UV rays and also helps to hydrate during the colder months. Calcium helps the body regulate skin cell regeneration and protein contains essential amino acids that help create collagen to prevent wrinkles. Almonds also contain monounsaturated fats that are important to the body for functions such as brain development, cell division and strengthening the immune system. So next time you are feeling a bit hungry for a snack, grab a handful of almonds.

Springtime is a time for renewal and new beginnings. It is also a time to revitalize your skin and help repair it from damage during the harsher, dry winter months. Exfoliation is key in the renewal process and can help achieve the glow that we often see on celebrities walking the red carpet in glamorous award shows like the Oscars. As we age, the rate of natural cell renewal slows down which can lead to wrinkles. Exfoliation helps remove old skin cells that can cause dryness and dullness while encourages cell regeneration.
In western cultures, we often fail to exfoliate enough or use harsh exfoliants that can tear, irritate or damage the skin. It is important to use a gentle natural exfoliant that can be used daily such as the Cleansing Renewal Face Rub™ by AnthroSpa Logic® for face. Given away to celebrities in gift bags at a prestigious award show, this natural 3-in-1 cleanser, toner and exfoliant is soap-free to preserve the skin’s natural moisture and includes natural anti-aging exfoliants used for centuries in China and Japan to maintain healthy glowing skin. It also nourishes with antioxidants to aid in cell renewal. Find it and learn more about AnthroSpa Logic’s innovative products at anthrospa.com.
Spring is a time for cleansing, renewal and fresh starts. With the change in the weather from winter to spring, it’s time to rejuvenate your skin and repair damage caused by the harsh weather during the colder months. It’s important to properly hydrate for a fresh faced look in spring. The colder weather can leave skin dry and dryness can lead to wrinkles. Use a high quality moisturizer like AnthroSpa Logic’s Dew Point Replenishing Moisturizer™ for a fresh, youthful glow. For all skin types, this multitasking moisturizer, is packed with antioxidants to help repair damage from free radicals and to help regenerate skin cells. Moisture is key, but nourishment from the vitamins in this 100% natural moisturizer is also necessary for cell renewal. Even oiler skin types need moisture as overly drying the skin can lead to an overproduction of oil and breakouts. Apply 2-3 drops of Dew Point Replenishing Moisturizer™ in the morning after washing your face for dewy, hydrated skin all day. For dry skin, also apply 2-3 drops at night to aid in over night cell renewal and hydration.
