12 Effective Ways To Moisturize Your Skin Naturally

To maintain a beautiful, youthful skin you do not need expensive beauty products. But what you eat and how you treat yourself can easily avert or even reverse aging. Our body needs the right nutrients to fight off damage, as the glow of your skin comes from within.

Nutrients help produce cells, which then produce more energy. Stress, processed foods, and low-nutrient diets are the first enemies to your glowing skin. Preventing yourself from harmful chemicals while getting enough sleep, regular exercise, and relaxation will also help you to maintain healthy glowing skin.

Below are some beneficial ways you can apply in your daily lives to get a healthy and youthful skin.

1. Drink plenty of water

This is the ultimate formula for the glowing skin. Drink a number of glasses of water in a day, because with a small amount of dehydration your body works in a less optimal way. The more abruptly you're dehydrated the more your skin would look dull, flaky and saggy.

2. Eat foods with antioxidants

Eating foods with antioxidants is the best way to help your body fight disease and aging by reducing damage and inflammation. Inflammation is the main cause of wrinkle formation. Some of the best antioxidant sources are:

  • Pomegranates
  • Goji Berries
  • Acai Berries
  • Blueberries
  • Spinach
  • Nuts
  • Raspberries
  • Purple Grapes
  • Seeds
  • Organic Green Tea
  • Dark Chocolate (with 70% or more cocoa content)

3. Have a rainbow-colored plate of food

Free radicals formed in our bodies can cause major damage to our cell structures and the different nutrient-rich foods that we eat neutralize them. To fight off the different kinds of free radicals, you must have the widest variety of antioxidants.

4. Eat organic food

Eating organic food reduces consumption of aging toxins.

5. Limit your sun exposure

A small amount of daily sunlight is beneficial for the body and produces Vitamin D, but too much sun can harm your skin. Always wear your sunglasses and use zinc and titanium dioxide sunscreen.

6. Opt for natural skin products

There are several skin care products that come with harsh chemicals. Before buying any moisturizer or makeup, make sure you do some research. Check that the ingredients present in them are the safest.

7. Use non-toxic cleaning products

It is all-important to limit exposure to harmful chemicals, since the skin absorbs them.

8. Own a plant

The pollution levels of your indoor area can be even higher than the outdoor area. Owning a plant in your home or by your desk at work can act as an air filter.

9. Get enough Vitamin C

A Vitamin C rich diet can lead to fewer wrinkles or you can use some Vitamin C serums. It has been found that the skin exposed to Vitamin C for a long period of time can generate up to eight times more collagen.

10. Eat healthy foods

Add foods like avocados, olive oil, nuts, and fish and flax seeds to your diet. It is important because fatty acids are mandatory for your skin to look youthful.

11. Cleanse your body

Air, water, and food can build up toxins in the body and can cause damage to the body (and aging, as well). One of the most recommended ways to detox the body is drinking juice that focuses on energy production and eliminating toxins. You can also have a glass of water with squeezed lemon in the morning to cleanse the body.

12. Sleep

Your skin revitalizes and repairs itself mostly when you are sleeping. Make sure that you not only complete your eight hours of sleep, but it is high-quality sleep.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
