TOP 5 KITCHEN ITEMS FOR EVERY SKIN TYPE By Guest Blogger- Asia DeMarcos aka BEAUTASIA

Hi Superhero’s in-training!

I’ve had a few clients text me today with skincare emergencies. One wanted a hydrating mask, the other had just burned herself. So I got to thinking. Why not blog about this to share with you. Here are my top 5 kitchen collaborators for every skin condition.

AVOCADO-hass

1. Avocados- Skin Types: Dry, dehydrated, red, inflamed or rosasea. I love having plenty of these on hand. They contain a rich natural oil that’s great to condition your skin and hair. It also contains niacin, which has been great for inflammation. Perfect for rosacea. Mash it up and put it on you face for 10-15 minutes. Rinse with luke warm water. Beautasia note: Rinse off in kitchen sink where there’s a garbage disposal. 

honey

2. Honey- Skin Types: Dry, dehydrated, Sun Damaged, Acne, Aging. This sweet tea compadre is also good for dry skin. It’s a humectant. Which means it will draw moisture into the skin. This amber colored delight is also an anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial and anti-microbial so its also perfect for aging and acneic skin types. Take 1 tablespoon of honey and apply to face. Leave on 15-20 minutes. Rinse with luke warm water.

3. LemonSkin Types: Oily, Acneic, Sun Damaged, Non Sensitive. This amazing liquid is a natural antiseptic and contains natural acids that will exfoliate the face.  These acids will also naturally brighten sun damaged skin. It can be a little drying, so don’t use it if you have super sensitive skin. The acid and antiseptic will also kill those zits! Apply directly from the fruit of squeeze in a bowl and apply with cotton ball or round leave on skin. Beautasia note: Best to sleep on face overnight.

4. Apple Cider VinegarSkin Types: Oily, Enlarged Pores, Acneic and burned skin. Apple cider vinegar or ACV as it’s known on the streets is great for balancing the body’s ph inside and out! Pour it on a burn and it will draw out the sting. Apply to acne or oily skin so the malic acids and lactic acids with gently exfoliate and kill bacteria. Apply directly on areas with cotton round.

5. Olive Oil- Skin Types: Dry and Aging. This favorite cooking companion is a nice bath counterpart too. Add a few tablespoon in your bath and watch the dry scaly legs go bye bye. Olive oil is rich in anti-oxidants that will protect you skin from further environmental damage. Mix a little of this with avocado or honey for SUPER hydrating mask. Leave on face as a moisturizer or blot with paper towel. I personally love it as an eye makeup remover. Watch this video I made on how to properly remove it.

Try and mix some of these ingredients together for multiple skin issue. My all time favorites that make my skin soft and bright is 1/4 mashed avocado and 1 teaspoon honey. Please share some of your kitchen favorites in the comment section below. Happy mixing!

WIN THE BATTLE OVER ADULT ACNE!

HELLO GORGEOUS!

I recently asked you all to submit your questions and concerns and WHOA BABY- sounds like lots of you girls are suffering from hormonal adult acne. (GRRRRR!!!)  I have been there, done that and know too well how your self-esteem suffers from it.  In today’s webisode, I give you the strategy that  has helped me win the battle once and for all. (HALLELUJAH!!!)  We usually see the first signs of adult acne in our late 20’s when our hormones start changing and many women experience it after childbirth when their hormones are regulating. Then, several women may experience it all over again in their 50’s-60’s as they go through menopause.  With a few minor tweaks and supplements, we can all experience the freedom of beautiful, clear, healthy skin!  This is an extra long video because I just couldn’t edit out any info! 

Get out your notepad + pen….

{Cleanser with Salicylic Acid}

{Fave scrub by Sia Botanics}

{Weekly At-Home Greek Yogurt Facial}

{Blueberries Neutralize Oils}

{Turmeric Spice or in a Supplement Form}

{VERY IMPORTANT}

Final Tip- Drink lots of water!

{Truth}

Beautiful skin really does start within, not only with healthy eating and supplements, but through a low-stress lifestyle!  Did this info help? Please click like and share! Tweet it too!
