It could be from what you are eating....

Are you in your thirties (or somewhat close to) and wondering why your skin looks like a hormonal teenager sometimes? Or feel like you paid your dues with acne in your teens, and you thought once you were really an adult that you would never see another pimple again? 54% of women of age 25 or older actually suffer from acne and if acne is something that you have always had to deal with, off and on since your teens, then the cause of it could actually be what you are eating. Yes, it really could be from a food allergy. I recently read here @ highonhealth that many people have cured their acne through what they are eating. Wheat and dairy (cow's milk) are the most common culprits, but eggs, nuts, soy, fish, shellfish and gluten are all foods that can cause a food allergy as well. Food allergies cause an inflammatory reaction with in your body, and acne is definitely an inflammatory result.

I know that when my skin is looking all dewy, and clear I definitely feel better about my over all appearance. I can only imagine that most of you feel the same way.....especially if you are a 'grown up' women in you thirties. If you suspect that this could be the case for you, then try eliminating certain foods for one month and see if it helps your skin. You could also always go get tested for food allergies, but it's worth saving some money right off of the bat and trying it out for yourself. If you're not sure then just try paying attention to your body, and skin in particular, when you are eating certain foods and see if you find any type of flare up when you do eat a certain food....if so then eliminate it and see what happens. Another reminder to also get that water in, and lots of it, daily;)

If you are suffering from acne, check this site out Fran is a women who cured her acne naturally, and shares her secrets, along with so many other great health related topics, with you.

** A great make up tip for dealing with acne is to wear a warm pink lip stick. It naturally gives an illusion of a more even skin tone, and draws attention away from the blemishes!

Happy Monday!!!

Black Out

So I know that Labor Day is right around the corner, which means that some of you follow the no opened toe "rule". I am not one that has always followed it because we always still have such beautiful weather through out September in Colorado, and I know that once I put my sandals away they are not coming back out for a good amount of time. Being that darker colors are resurfacing due to Fall rolling in, now is a great time to try black on your nails. I know that this has been popular for a while, but I also know there are many of you that feel like black is a little extreme. It might feel like it at first, but it actually looks pretty good on the toes, and I love it on the finger nails. Plus it always go with everything. I think if you try it out, you will be pleasantly surprised at how good it actually does look. So, if you have wanted to try this popular color out, now is a great time to go for it.

* Just can't do the black? Then try a dark blue.....

.....or even a grey. These are both great alternative colors to the black, that look good, and they are different from the usual wine reds, and dark purples that we see when using darker colors on our nails.

Have a great weekend that is almost HERE!!

I heard this just a couple of days ago, and wanted to share, encourage and inspire you: "A way to conquer fear is through knowledge"
