We all want great skin because it’s one of the first things people notice! While we rely on make up to some degree, we at Eden Life Centres believe in building beauty from the inside out, after all our skin is a our largest organ. Did you know our skin is the last organ to receive nutrition in the body, yet it is among the first to show signs of an imbalance or deficiency? Check out these simple tips on how to get Glowing Skin!
A diet rich in antioxidants found in vibrantly coloured vegetables, green tea, blueberries and dark chocolate helps to achieve healthier, more youthful glowing skin. Every day our skin cells are rebuilding themselves, using vitamins, minerals, water and trace elements from the food we provide our bodies. You literally ‘are you what you eat’. Diet and lifestyle practices that nourish your body facilitate a natural radiant complexion. Eden offers holistic nutritional medicine consultations , which provide clients a natural approach to achieving that #EDENGLOW.
Sweat on a regular basis.
Physical exercise and breaking a sweat can do wonders for your skin. Have you noticed that gorgeous post work out skin glow? Sweating is an awesome way to release toxins through your skin to keep it healthy and glowing. You’ll open up your pores and get rid of any impurities, which will leave your skin smoother and softer.
Whether you’re doing some type of exercise that makes you sweat (my preference is hot yoga) or sweating it out in a sauna or steam room, your skin will truly love you for it. Make exercise part of your daily routine for that daily glow!
It’s called beauty sleep for a reason. Sleep deprivation lowers circulation, which is why you look pale and washed out if you only get a few hours. It’s the best time to rejuvenate your skin; your body’s cellular renewal team has the night shift, so this is when you want to equip your skin with as many nutrients and hydrating ingredients it need to do a fine job.
At least 7 hours a night is recommended.
Everyday your skin is damaged by environmental factors like the sun and pollution, which is why it’s so important to include SPT in your skincare routine.
Wearing sunscreen is the single easiest way to prolong healthy, glowing skin and look younger for longer. 90% of wrinkles are from sun exposure. It is so much easier to prevent damage than to fix it. Look for a formula that offers broad-spectrum protection to guard against UVA rays (the ones that cause premature ageing) and UVB (one of the main causes of skin cancer).
Give yourself a quick facial massage.
Take a few moments and your favourite oil, we love EDEN’s AGELESS SERUM packed with Vitamin E, antioxidants and essential oils, which work by blocking free radicals and reduce wrinkles. A quick daily massage will help to boost circulation, increase collagen production for a natural plumped healthy glow. Massage your favourite oil into your face using upward strokes, focusing on your forehead, cheeks and jaw area, to defy gravity as much as possible.
One of the most important glowing skin secrets is Vitamin C. Eating a diet rich in plant sources of Vitamin C will help achieve brighter skin tones although our digestive tract can only handle and absorb doses of 500mg at a time, whereas IV Vitamin C can be administered at much larger doses. IV Vitamin infusions don’t get metabolised by your liver, so they’re absorbed directly into the bloodstream and tissues. With Intravenous Vitamin therapy directly into the bloodstream you receive 100% Vitamin absorption. Take a look at Eden Life Centres IV Menu to see our range of IV packages.
Vitamin C is a major water-soluble antioxidant that increases extracellular collagen production and is important for a healthy immune system.
Given the role of Vitamin C in collagen production and antioxidant production, it is not surprising that intravenous infusion of Vitamin C leaves you feeling and looking more revitalised. Vitamin C contains a high amount of antioxidants, which help to get rid of wrinkles, fine lines and other ageing spots. It also prevents dryness caused due to ageing. Vitamin C brightens skin, promotes even tone skin and helps to reduce puffiness or eye bags around the eyes thus preventing dark circles.

Drink plenty of water.
Drinking plenty of water throughout the day, at least 2 litres, will help flush out toxins from your body. The skin contains approximately 30% water, which contributes to plumpness and elasticity. Water intake not only improves skin hydration but can help with acne and clogged pores.
