So in english terms… MILK IS AMAZING! Milk proteins get rid of the old skin cells, discoloration AND oil. While at the same time restoring the new skin underneath for you to GLOW GIRL!

Honey is not just for sweetening up your taste buds.. Let's sweeten up your skin care routine too! Honey is a skin care nutrient that has been around for ages.. The Queen (literally) herself Cleaopatra used it ALL the time in her beauty routine. It’s full of antioxidants, which are good for wrinkles and aging skin. It is antibacterial, which gets rid of dreaded breakouts and prevents them from coming back. It clarifies skin by opening up and unclogging pores. It’s also a great moisturizer that soothes irritation and blemishes, and it leaves a lovely afterglow.
3. Jojoba Oil
If you can pronounce this name I am impressed! Jojoba oil contains oodles of vitamins, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory properties, but what sets it apart from the others is that it’s technically not an oil, but a wax ester. What does this mean for your skin? “Jojoba oil has a similar molecular structure and composition to sebum, which the skin naturally produces for moisturization,” says Zain Husain, M.D. So when you apply it to your skin, jojoba oil mimics the skin’s sebum and balances out your complexion, adding more sebum where it’s needed, and reducing production where it’s not.
4. Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera is like a little piece of nature but with mountainous benefits of healing and taking care of your body from head to toe. Aloe vera is good for your skin as it’s loaded with bioactive compounds and vitamins that have the ability to heal repair and rejuvenate your skin from within a little time. The Natural Aloe Vera is loaded with skin-friendly vitamins like A, C, F, B which helps in boosting collagen production and reducing aging-related issues. Pure aloe vera helps reduce melanin production. It deeply nourishes the skin and promotes new skin cells.
5. Witch Hazel
The polyphenols witch hazel contains may help fight premature aging: “Theoretically, witch hazel may have antioxidant effects that help mitigate and prevent free radical damage to skin from UV [rays] and oxidizing air pollution,” says Tsippora Shainhouse, MD. Plus, its astringent properties can make your skin look firmer. “Witch hazel is a rich source of constricting compounds that make the proteins inside skin cells come together,” says Deborah Longwill, DO, board-certified dermatologist and founder of Miami Center for Dermatology. The result? It temporarily makes your pores appear smaller.
So what's the verdict? YOU are in control of nourishing your body AND YOUR SKIN! Take charge and include these game changing natural ingredients to get the skin of your dreams. No it will not happen overnight, good things and healing takes time. But, the time to start on your perfect glowing skin is now! In the meantime remember you are beautiful and that confidence and a healthy complexion is a journey all of us are on!
