Healthy skin is probably the most important aspect of natural beauty-enhancement. Below you will find the top 10 best skin care tips. Though there are certainly more than 10 important tips to getting the most beautiful skin possible, this skin care tips list is limited to the top 10 that cover the critical points of skin care. Here they are:
1. Know Your Skin Type. Determining your skin type is the first thing that must be done because it will determine the products you choose and the daily regimen that you will follow. There is no one product that will suit every skin type. Your type will be classified as dry, oily, or combination. Look for products that specifically deal with your particular type.
2. Drink Plenty of Water. This cannot be stressed enough. Drinking lots of water will keep your skin moist and will aid in your overall health. Your skin is the biggest organ of your body and it requires a lot of water in order to be at its best. This is one of the most important tips for overall best skin care.
3. Cleanse the skin twice a day. Every day we are exposed to dust, free radicals and outside pollutants that can damage our skin. Even though our skin doesn’t look “dirty”, we must be sure to cleanse regularly and twice a day is the recommended amount. When bathing or cleansing your face, use lukewarm water instead of very hot or very cold water because both of those may damage the skin as well.
4. Treat your skin gently. Scrubbing the skin or exfoliating too often is not good for your skin. Never rub, but gently massage the cleanser into your face using upward circular motions. As you age, the skin loses its elasticity and rubbing it or pulling it can actually cause the skin to sag.
5. Use a moisturizer. Dry skin looks bad because it’s not getting the proper nutrients that it needs. The dryness will actually cause your outer layer of skin to crack which results in an unattractive look. Choose a moisturizer that is right for your skin type and apply it over damp skin. Also ensure it’s a good quality product that contains the necessary nutrients for best skin care. Read the rest of this entry »

A wise man should consider that health is the greatest of human blessings.” -Hippocrates
Research has shown that each part of the body contains high concentrations of certain nutrients, A deficiency of those nutrients will cause the body part to malfunction and eventually break down – like dominos, other body parts will follow. If we do not give ourselves or our horses the proper nutrients, we can impair the body’s normal functions and cause great harm. Even if there are no signs of illness it doesn’t necessarily mean they are healthy, it simply may be that they are not exhibiting symptoms of illness. Often the owners don’t see the signs of deterioration as they are so subtle and develop so gradually that they go unnoticed until the problem becomes serious then they want a “quick fix” which may fix the symptoms however not the problem.
Many horses owners feed foods that are processed and/or cooked ( most senior feeds) which destroys most of the nutritional value. The use of pesticides and other toxins in the environment compromises the horses health along with the over use of antibiotics, both oral and injectable, the use of corticosteroids, vaccinations wormers and just the air we breath (smog and exhaust fumes). Much of the forages are stored outside in the elements and even if stored covered over a period of time the nutritional value is decreased. Good nutrition is the foundation of good health. There are books and much extensive information available, this is just a basic overview of what we have in our supplement and how it will help your four legged friends. Everyone needs the four basic nutrients – water, carbohydrates, protein and fats – as well as vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other micronutrients. The first four are the basis for a good diet, by getting the other nutrients – which are essential for life – the body can utilize the first four for maximum performance and functioning.
Vitamins are essential to life – they regulate metabolism and assist the biochemical processes that release energy from digested food and are the foundation of body functions. Some are water soluble which cannot be stored in the body so therefore they must be taken into the body daily – includes Vitamin C and B-complexes. Others are fat soluble vitamins which can be stored for longer periods of time in the body’s fatty tissue and liver – includes vitamins A, D,E, and K. Read the rest of this entry »
