Curejoy had the pleasure to get Tina to divulge some interesting facts about natural ways to Skin Care and why the ‘inside out” approach works to reverse signs of aging:
Are Cosmetics Really The Answer To Get That Ethereal Youthful Look?
In fact, many cosmetics may actually damage the quality your skin and health over time, due to the harsh chemicals and ingredients in them.
Why Do You Feel Handling Your Diet And Mind Can Reflect Positively On Your Skin?
What you put on the inside is reflected on the outside. This doesn’t just pertain to weight, but to your skin and hair as well. It’s important to eat foods that your body can properly digest so you can absorb nutrients that it needs and eliminate toxins that would otherwise lead to inflammation in the body.

Absolutely. Studies have shown that a healthy lifestyle can reverse the signs of aging. Antioxidant rich foods such as berries, orange and yellow fruits and vegetables, and dark leafy greens, as well as healthy fats and proteins help hydrate, protect and repair the skin from free radical damage. They also help support cell turnover which aids sweeping away dead skin cells and replacing them with healthy new ones.
Proper nutrition can also reduce wrinkles, dry, sagging skin and even grey hair. However, it’s important to think of aging from a preventative standpoint as opposed to a treatment standpoint if possible, because there is only so much any sort of treatment can do once the damage is done.

Also, practice the 80/20 rule when it comes to any lifestyle changes to ensure you don’t get overwhelmed and give up. Do good by your body 80% of the time and be a little more relaxed 20% of the time. You don’t have to be “perfect”, you just have to make the best choices for you as best as you can. Living a healthy and happy life is all about balance, not deprivation.
