Achieve that "lit from within" glow with a healthy lifestyle and Myra Vit. E

We pay too much attention on the things we topically apply on our skin, we're even taught to read the ingredients label thoroughly, and heavily research on good and "bad" ingredients. While all these are well and good, we must not forget to also pay attention to our lifestyle and the food we eat which all contribute to our overall health condition. 

Necessities: Kor Water Bottle, Yummy Recipe book, Myra Vitamin E capsules
So aside from being an ingredients sergeant, here are some tips on how to get that "glow from within":

Sleep. Your entire body, including your skin, goes into repair mode while you snooze. Help your skin cells regenerate and your facial muscles relax by making sure you catch quality sleep. Still feel like you’re not getting enough rest when you wake up in the morning? One of the reasons could be that your alarm is rousing you in the middle of your deep-sleep stage. To make mornings less of a drag -- or if you know you’re only catching a few hours of shuteye -- try setting a wake-up time that’s a multiple of 90 minutes. This is the length of the average sleep cycle, so you’re sure to wake up to a beautiful morning.

Exercise. Even though you know that a good work out is great for your heart, lungs, and mental outlook, chances are, you’re still not hitting the gym as much as you should. Here's a little motivation that’ll inspire you to get moving: Regular exercise is also one of the keys to scoring healthy skin. By increasing blood flow, exercise helps nourish skin cells and keeps them vital. It also helps carry away waste products, including free radicals, from working cells. Think of it as a cleanse for your skin, but from the inside. 

I know, I know. It's tough to stick to an exercise schedule when you're too busy with work (this is always my excuse). What I do is I skip riding the car, jeep, or van and instead walk to the office (a good 15 minute brisk walk) just to pump me up. Walking every day will do wonders for your legs -- think gorgey calf muscles :)

Hydrate. Healthy skin is well-hydrated skin. If you want your complexion to glow, you need to make sure that you’re drinking enough H20 on a daily basis. Keep this Kor water bottle on your desk at work or in your car, and remember to sip often. Want to add a little flavor? Toss in a lemon wedge or a splash of fruit juice -- it’s a great substitute for sugary sodas or iced teas. 

Eat Well. Did you know that the food you eat matters to your skin almost as much as it does to your waistline? This is because your skin uses vitamins and nutrients from food to repair and rebuild damaged skin cells. Make time to plan your meals daily with the help of this Yummy Light Meals recipe book, so you don’t end up going for unhealthy options or fast food. Also check out salad in a jar by Healthy Monsters, I swear by their salads. 

Take Vitamin E. This is where the heart of Holistic Skin Care is. As you go about your usual work day, you get exposed to bad and uncontrollable free radicals that damage your cells. The result: tired-looking skin that looks dull, dry, and aging. Help your skin bounce back and recoup easily by adding a daily dose of Vitamin E to your diet. Since this vitamin isn't produced by the body, taking a powerful Vitamin E supplement like Myra, can help. It’s rich in anti-oxidants to help boost your skin from within and also stops skin-damaging, free radicals from stealing life from your cells. 

I regularly take Vitamin E and I noticed that my hair maintains its healthy state, (I have it colored every couple of months and permed once a year), my skin heals faster if I "accidentally" popped a pimple or had my monthly extractions. Vitamin E is pretty much a staple in our household as my Mom swears by taking Vitamin A, C, E, even Cod Live Oil, and she is really looks so young for her age. 

How do you keep yourself looking and feeling young?
