I'm wondering if my fresh new diet will have any impact on my skin. Plagued with skin cancers and pre-cancers I'll take all the help I can get. Once I saw the tremendous results that Melinda was getting by eliminating all the processed foods from her diet, I began to think about the skin cancers that I have had in the past and the overall condition of my skin. I already believe that what we eat affects our skin so I take this very seriously and this may be what my skin needs. It is too soon to tell if it has helped any but I can't help but think that it will. I mean all the nutrients I'm now getting throughout the day, minus the empty foods should help right? Gosh I hope so.
So along with a diet that is finally getting cleaned up, I'm still using extra virgin olive oil as my moisturizer. Still washing my face with Dermalogica Ultra Calming Cleanser. I use Sephora's Eye Contour Pencil in chocolate to line my lower lids to fill in where I lost my lashes from the surgery they did to remove the cancer. I love this pencil because it is super soft and stays put. In addition to wearing a hat when I'm outside, I have taken to wearing a daytime BB cream that has a good spf. I've chosen Physicians Formula BB Cream based on its Skin Deep excellent rating. I apply it with a little olive oil in the morning and it makes for a nice, dewy foundation. I finish off with Aveda's Nourishmint Lipstick in Poppy. I only wear blush and mascara when I'm going out, not so much when I'm hanging around the house.
As an esthetician I get locked into the products that I use day in and day out. I often wonder if there are great products I'm missing out on. I've recently begun venturing outside the Aveda line. Would you mind sharing anything you think I should know about? Products that have given you tremendous results? Fill me in please. x
