The Formula for Healthy Skin


To have healthy skin, follow this formula:

  • one part healthy foods and drinks
  • one part quality skin care products

Your skin will not be it’s healthiest and look it’s best if one part or the other is neglected.

Let’s look at what you put into your body…

For optimal skin health, you want to eat raw foods rich in nutrients. Prevention.com lists the following in their 25 Best Foods for Your Skin: dark chocolate, tomatoes, kale, green tea, walnuts and chickpeas. (Get the full list and explanation for each on Prevention.com.) Notice there was no mention of lattes or french fries!

Also, take a look at your water intake. If you are under the minimal recommended serving of 8 cups per day, it’s time to improve your intake. Keep a chart on your refrigerator and mark it each time you refill your glass. This will keep you accountable and on track for your daily intake.

What you put on your skin matters too.

If you are neglecting your daily skin care routine, you really need to change that! Don’t be lazy about taking care of your skin! Not only will it make your skin look tired, dull and either broken out or wrinkly (or worse, both!) now, it will show on your face years down the road.  You’ll be wishing you had paid more attention to this advice.

A good cleanser, toner, moisturizer with SPF and an eye cream is the minimal list of daily products you should be using. There are many beauty product reviews on A Mom in Red High Heels that you can read to figure out which products are best for you. Today, I want to share a brand new product with you…

I tried the best eye cream the other day! Arbonne RE9 Advanced Lifting and Contouring Eye Cream is new to the market so you may have not heard about it, which is why I have to share it with you.

Simply put, it’s awesome.

It really is. My under eye area was so smooth, soft and lifted. I even tried some on the back of my hand and couldn’t stop running my hand over the area…so soft!

I did not use the product for any duration of time but the immediate results were impressive!

If you know Arbonne, you know that they use ingredients that are natural, gentle and effective. The Lifting and Contouring Eye Cream contains ingredients like:

  • Peony root extract (to make skin smoother and firmer)
  • Algae extract (supports collagen)
  • Tri-peptides (supports collagen and elastin)
  • Vitamin C (supports collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid for the appearance of lifted skin)
  • Sea buckthorn oil and olive fruit oil (antioxidants and moisture support)
  • Cassava (for immediate appearance of lifting and smoothing on the skin).

This eye cream is a great tool to have in your beauty tool box! It helps skin around the eye area appear plumper to reveal smoother, more youthful-looking skin.

I love these benefits because my lashes can take center stage instead of my wrinkles!

Try Arbonne RE9 Advanced Lifting and Contouring Eye Cream for firmer, more youthful appearing eyes, you won’t be disappointed!

P.S. Go drink some water now, k?
