As skin ages…

 

 In youth, skin exfoliates naturally, regenerating new skin cells at breakneck speed, causing youthful skin to have that healthy, natural glow.  But as skin ages, its ability to slough off dead skin cells slows to a crawl. In fact, older skin still renews and regenerates fresh new skin cells, but the old, dead skin cells stay put on the outer layer of skin, instead of falling off; and because the old dead skin cells hang on, older skin tends to become drawn and tired looking, not allowing the vibrant glowing new, fresh under layer of skin to take center stage, brightening up the face.

 

So let’s get glowing…

 

A substance called Glycolic Acid, an alpha hydroxy acid found in nature, is actually the antidote to the glue that keeps aging cells holding on way past there expiration date. And the good news is that Glycolic Acid can easily be found in the simplest of foods from milk to molasses, as well as hundreds of other edibles in between.

 

Using these foods separately or combining them together, and putting them on the skin will bring amazing results.

 

Some natural exfoliating foods are:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Amazing Skin Polishing Face Lift

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. Pulverize well in a coffee grinder, sea salt, granulated raw sugar, and cinnamon.

 

2. Combine 1 teaspoon of dry mix with 1/2 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice and 1/2 teaspoon of molasses.

 

3. Gently rub over face for 1 minute, allow to dry. After drying leave on face for at least 15 minutes. Gently rinse off with a damp washcloth. While face is still moist apply a nourishing face cream (Essential Nutrients by Dove).

 

     Also, the face cream can be combined with 1/2 teaspoon of the powder mixture and left on for another hour before washing off and applying only the face cream. Although the second treatment using the face cream with the powder mixture is helpful, the one treatment is enough to begin enjoying the benefits of the Skin Polishing Face Lift.

 

 

Why it works

 

Raw Sugar is loaded with glycolic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid renowned for turning back the clock on aging skin. Molasses (a liquid form of raw sugar), and granulated raw sugar are both loaded with glycolic acid.

     Glycolic acid unglues dead skin cells, sloughing them off instantly, allowing the new fresh glowing skin underneath to shine through immediately.

 

Lemon contains loads of ascorbic acid also known as vitamin C. And vitamin C is a magic youth potion for the skin as well as the whole body. Lemon also contains ample amounts alpha hydroxy acids.

 

Sea Salt is a natural exfoliate that also draws toxins out of the body. Sea salt is also a softening agent containing many skin loving nutrients including magnesium, zinc, calcium, potassium, iodine, and many other essential trace minerals.

 

Cinnamon stimulates blood circulation, plumps up skin, and is a natural astringent, antiseptic and antifungal.

Note: You may feel a slight, temporary burning sensation when applied to  skin. The slight tingling is well worth the benefits.

 

Lemon Zest Powder is also extremely beneficial as an additive to the basic dry mixture. Simply set aside the unused peel of a lemon, allowing it to dry. It may take several weeks. Pulverize to a fine powder in coffee grinder and include 1 teaspoon along with the above ingredients.

 

Cleopatra was renowned for her beautiful skin, due to her spending long hours luxuriating in milk baths. Surprisingly, today’s science can back up the age old claim that luxuriating in milk baths really can get a body glowing!
