Your Skin: Inside and Out

Cellulite, wrinkles, scars are swear words in many women’s dictionaries, but they don’t have to be. There is nothing we can do about the natural process of ageing, but we can still look good doing it! Feeding your body the correct foods can go a long way towards maintaining a healthy weight, feeling full of energy and keeping your hair, skin and nails shining from within, but where does that leave the plethora of beauty products out there?

There are many benefits to combining a nutritious diet with a good beauty regime, because beauty can not survive on vegetables alone.


Knowing how to handle stress is as important as knowing how to de-stress effectively. Human beings thrive on touch and numerous studies have shown that men and women, especially the elderly, live longer and can even stave off the onset of Alzheimer’s when they have regular physical contact with another person. On the other hand, prolonged stress, even at low levels, can eventually have negative effects on brain function and toxic build up in the body. Even if you don’t have someone else to rub your shoulders or paint your nails for you, the time taken out of your busy schedule to spend just on you can be rejuvenating, both in the quiet time as well as seeing and feeling the effects afterwards.

Double Time

You can double the effect of nourishing your skin by feeding it correctly from the inside as well as feeding it what it needs from the outside. Make sure that the product you use has a reliable and easily absorbed carrier oil or cream, otherwise it will just sit on top of your skin without taking all the good stuff below where it can have an effect.

Try Herbex’ Stretch Mark Cream, packed with natural healing and readily absorbed oils and plant extracts for a soft, glowing skin.

Pure Mechanics

The simple act of rubbing cream or oil into your skin has two purely mechanical benefits too: it stimulates circulation, allowing more fresh blood to pass through the area, bringing oxygen and nutrients quickly and then just as quickly bearing all the unwanted cells away. This facilitates healthy growth and repair in the cells below the skin’s surface and relieves unsightly cellulite. It also stimulates the lymph system, giving your immune system a boost – and when feeling good is the goal, who wouldn’t want that?
