Top 12 Tips  to Beautify Your Skin

Your face is what you eat and exercise (or lack thereof!)

Your diet has a direct impact on your skin. Vitamins and minerals from your food helps your hormones perform optimally, resulting in a glowing and smooth skin. Skin aging can be reversed by eating foods that can lower inflammation. Exercise keeps your skin firm and combats cellulite.

1. Water
Drinking adequate water means your skin looks plumper and wrinkles fade.

Drinking makes you go pee where toxins and waste material gets discharged through your urine, instead of through your skin, in the form of acne and breakouts.

Also consume fruits and vegetables which are  rich with water content such as watermelons and cucumber

2. Yogurt
Greek yogurt is rich in protein. Protein has a firming effect on your skin and it gets rid of fine lines.

3. Pomegranate
Antioxidant helps skin care. They fight lines and deliver hydration. Pomegranates are rich with antioxidant polyphenols which  fights free radicals and regulate blood flow, thus giving your skin the radiant glow.
You can also drink a glass of organic 100% pomegranate juice a day.

4. Kidney Beans
Zinc content in kidney beans fights acne. Eat a small portion of it daily to keep you blemish free.

5. Sunflower Seeds
High in Vitamin E, sunflower seeds protect your skin from the harmful effects of the sun.

6. Almond Milk
If you want to cut inflammation, replace dairy with this non-dairy milk in your coffee and recipes.

7. Oatmeal
Eating a bowl of of oatmeal for breakfast  keeps your blood sugar level stable. The higher your blood sugar levels are, the more harmful hormones your body makes, and these can give you more wrinkles.
When your blood sugar level is high, the sugar attaches to the proteins in collagen which makes the skin sag as well.

8. Green Tea
Green tea is very high in an antioxidant called EGCG which fights inflammation. At least a cup a day.

9. Peppers and Carrots
All yellow or orange vegetables have high levels of carotenoids. These are antioxidants that lower the skin’s sensitivity to the sun, and that means fewer crow’s feet.

10. Dark chocolate
Dark chocolate of at least 70% cacao  is great for hydrating skin and making it firmer. It also contains flavanols, a powerful antioxidant.

11. Clock in at least 150 min of exercise per week, including 2 days of strength training, guidelines by the American College of Medicine. A toned body gets rid of cellulites. And sweat from that good workout helps moisturise the skin leaving it soft and supple. To exercise with Dr Dee, click:

2. Do not go on a crash diet as it affects your skin elasticity. Healthy lifestyle for weight management is the best solution. Not only that you are losing the fat weight gradually,  you get healthier too!

Fuel up for a natural facelift!

Real reasons why you must STRETCH?  When you stretch, your muscle lengthens. Muscle lengthening provides greater range of motion ( ROM), which is important to  individuals who have decreased ROM due to injury, a sedentary lifestyle or aging.

A well-stretched muscle helps you in the process of recovery after exercise, ridding you of excessive muscle soreness. It also decreases your risk of injury as your muscle and surrounding areas of the muscles become supple and flexible.  Perform Full Body 12 stretches at least 2 times per day, breathing gently throughout.  Do not hold your breath while stretching.  The 12 Stretches is part of the scientific research  by Dr Dee Dee, as covered in this media coverage MORE Benefits of Stretching   - increases  flexibility ,  - for rehabilitation , - increases circulation - blood flow to the muscle increases after a lon
