Feed Your Face: Calorie Free

Beautify your skin from the outside in with no worries about calories or weight gain, just beautiful skin. What you put on your skin gets absorbed via your pores and into your body. Put some of your favorite healthy foods on your face and let them get to work on your skin. Some of the foods smell and taste so good you’ll want to eat them too so avoid licking your face.

Open up your fridge and kitchen cabinets and get to work concocting healthy skin potions. Then apply to face, turn off your phone and relax for 20 minutes. The relaxation is an added benefit for your skin! Then bring yourself back to reality by rinsing off with cold water.

We exercise for our heart and brain so doesn’t it make sense to exercise for our skin?

Being a visible organ, skin is also the biggest giveaway of our health. Read more
