Spring has sprung! Seasonally this is the ideal time to "clean" and emerge anew and fresh after the winter period. Here are 4 easy inside-out beauty tips which will help boost your health and give your skin a spring clean too.
1) Load-up on alkalising foods
Our bodies function best at a slightly alkaline pH level, which is why loading up on alkalising foods, such as most vegetables and fruits, is amazing for your wellbeing and skin - your largest organ! An easy way to do this is to aim to fill at least 70-80% of your plate with alkalising foods (look up an alkaline food chart if you need help) and start the day with 500ml spring water with the juice of half a lemon.
2) Buff up
No, we're not talking about hitting the gym for a weights session... we're talking about buffing your skin! Exfoliating your face and dry body brushing are excellent ways to remove dead, dull winter skin so that you are left smooth and glowing. Just make sure your exfoliant isn't loaded with nasty ingredients - our Edible Beauty & Desert Lime Flawless Micro-Exfoliant is an invigorating option made with natural micro-beads of rice which gently remove dead skin cells and enhance the skin's natural cell turnover to boost radiance and vitality.
3) Love your liver
Helping your body detox assists with clearing any bad waste out, which can improve your energy, vitality, immune system health, metabolism and enhances your natural beauty from the inside out. Any toxins in your system will be processed via the liver, which is why it is important to support the liver by including plenty of greens and herbs specific to this, such as St. Mary's Thistle and Dandelion Root. Our Edible Beauty No.1 Green Goddess Detox Beauty Tea contains both of these botanical actives, as well as one of the most prized "youth tonics", Schizandra, making it an excellent addition to your spring wellness regime.
4) Brighten your complexion with vitamin C
Vitamin C is a bit of a miracle nutrient when it comes to the skin, helping to fight free radical damage and support collagen synthesis, keeping your complexion fresh and youthful. The most effective way to reap the beauty benefits of this wonderful vitamin is to embrace the inside and outside use of it. Load up on vitamin C rich foods in your diet, such as citrus fruits, berries, kiwi, broccoli and dark leafy greens. Next, double up by applying a high quality, high vitamin C skincare product topically. Our Edible Beauty No.3 Exotic Goddess Ageless Serum is bursting with skin brightening vitamin C extracted from nature, including from the Kakadu Plum, which is the world's highest natural source of vitamin C. Apply a layer over the face before applying your moisturiser.
