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. It is a humectant which naturally helps the skin retain its natural moisture and elasticity to prevent wrinkles and dryness. Honey is also antibacterial and can help prevent breakouts on the skin. Rich in proteins, vitamins and minerals such as B6, thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, vitamin c, amino acids, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc, honey nourishes the skin and can help protect it from damage from free radicals. Applied topically, honey has been shown to help heal wounds and reduce scarring. Try using natural skin care products with honey as a main ingredient, such as AnthroSpa Logic’s Hydrate and Tone Face Masque.™ This excellent, 100% natural clay-free masque, contains soy and honey to hydrate and tone the skin as well as to encourage collagen without drying. I use this 2 minute face masque everyday to keep my skin smooth and flawless. It instantly improves the texture of my skin and many people think that I am wearing make-up because my skin is so even-toned.

Ever since I was a child, I have enjoyed the fall treat of fresh pomegranates and looked forward to the consuming the delicious, sweet, red juice enveloping the seeds of this unusual fruit. I was not aware at the time that this tasty treat provided a plethora of health benefits and had been used medicinally for thousands of years. Pomegranates contain strong anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties which can boost our immune system by fighting viruses and bacteria. The high antioxidant and omega 5 polyunsaturated fatty acid content is highly beneficial for cell regeneration and proliferation to protect against free radicals and sun damage. Pomegranates also have anti-inflammatory properties that can help protect against inflammatory diseases like psoriasis, rosacea and acne. The superfruit is also a great source of vitamin A, C and E and minerals such as calcium, phosphorous, potassium, iron, folic acid, niacin, thiamin, folates and riboflavin. Ancient civilizations such as the Greeks and Egyptians used pomegranate to cure a variety of diseases. Try adding a some pomegranate to your diet for an instant health boost. I like eating a section in the morning with breakfast or for an afternoon snack!

Many of us use a number of personal care products on our skin everyday. However, although we often read labels and pay attention to the ingredients in food to live a healthy lifestyle, we often we overlook the ingredients in the personal care products. Your skin is the largest organ of your body and can easily absorb chemicals that can be toxic to your system. Many personal care companies use chemicals that are cheap in their products to enhance profits at the expense of your health. One chemical that is often used as a preservative is DMDM Hydantoin. This preservative releases formaldehyde which can cause joint pain, cancer, skin reactions, allergies, headaches and more. Choose high performance products that are effective yet preservative-free and chemical-free such as AnthroSpa Logic® 100% natural skin care. This eco-chic line of multitasking products contains only high quality ingredients with a proven history of effectiveness.

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.
