Every bride wants to look her best on her wedding day. From a beautiful dress right down to manicured figure tips, no detail is overlooked…except for the skin. Having a radiant glow on your special day, starts with radiant skin. It's the canvas to build upon, so that everything else you do looks even better. The Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA) advises that there are natural ways to have glowing skin on your wedding day and well beyond. Here's the scoop:
Skin needs vitamins, minerals and nutrients found in nature to stay healthy. Consuming vitamin-rich fruits like pineapple, limes and bananas provide potassium, fibre and vitamins B-6, A and C. Blending these fruits with a low-calorie almond beverage (found at a natural health food store) is bound to bring radiance to your skin, and boost how you feel since it adds nutrients as well as a source of vitamin D.
Additionally, natural health products (NHPs) are an important option for producing glowing skin from the inside out. “Sometimes we don't eat all the nutrients we need to function at our best and to have great skin,” says Helen Sherrard, president of the CHFA. “Natural health products are an accessible, healthy option to supplement what we might be missing and take care of our skin from the inside out.”
For example, vitamin K which helps with blood circulation is found in not so popular foods like liver and spinach. If those aren't regular items on your menu, a good multi-vitamin that includes a daily dose of vitamin K may be an option. It will help to avoid deficiencies and may improve dark circles under eyes.
Finally, remember that the things you can do to beautify your skin are essentially the same things you should do to improve your overall health. Healthy lifestyle choices like getting enough sleep, watching sugar and alcohol intake, using NHPs and making time for regular exercise are natural recommendations that go a long way to looking your best on your wedding day and beyond.
