5 Secrets of Flawless Skin Beautiful Women Will Never Tell You

Youthful skin is not a gift of nature. It is achieved through the right routine. We at Mello Wax would like to share some secrets with you that will help you keep your skin looking flawless for many years to come.

1) Aloe Vera Leaf

Aloe vera gel reduces dark spots and scars and evens out the skin tone. It also moisturizes the skin, reduces the appearance of wrinkles, and heals the damaged skin.

2) LED Light Masks

It helps to strengthen the skin, thanks to the additional collagen production making the skin more resilient and elastic. Making it a very effective treatment for rosacea and reducing the redness that is associated with broken or weak capillaries. It also helps the skin to retain moisture more effectively and has anti-inflammatory properties therefore reduces inflammation within the tissue and helping to accelerate the healing process, so is particularly useful for healing blemishes, repairing sun damage, fading scars and improving overall skin tone.

3) Use a serum to boost radiance

According to makeup artist, Patrick Ta, he doesn't always apply foundation to his clients' faces, especially if he wants their natural beauty to shine through. In one occasion, Ta wanted to showcase her client's freckles, so he chose to spot treat any redness and dark shadows with concealer, and then patted a serum atop her cheekbones to add radiance to her complexion.

4) Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a super anti-oxidant that helps boost the immune system, promotes smooth, glowing skin and helps to heal blemishes. A study published in the American Journal of Nutrition found women over 40 with the highest amount of vitamin C in their diet were less likely to develop wrinkles than those who consumed lower levels. Increase your intake of vitamin C by eating by eating more guavas, citrus fruit, papaya, pineapple and bell peppers (pilipili hoho) among others. Eating more vitamin C-rich foods helps to protect skin cells from the sun’s harmful rays. Research suggests that vitamin C promotes the repair of DNA that’s been damaged by UV rays by mopping up free radicals produced from UV rays. Vitamin C also has an essential role in the production and maintenance of collagen, the fibrous protein that keeps skin looking young and firm.

5) Sunflower seeds

Sun flower seeds are packed full of vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that slows down the ageing of the skin cells to keep the skin looking young and supple. Sunflower seeds contain a high amount of essential fatty acids which can be topically applied to the lips to keep them moist and soft. Add sunflower seeds to salads, yoghurt or just eat a handful daily. Vitamin E is also known for its ability to diminish the appearance of scars. Almonds also contain loads of sun-blocking vitamin E.
