Tips for radiant skin
Simple Steps to Save Face: Main Image

A face cream with an SPF of 15 or higher should be a mandatory part of your beauty regimen

Your skin is the barometer of your health, and lifestyle choices literally make their mark on your face. No need to cover your face or panic. Just follow the commonsense guidelines below for skin preservation, and you'll be sure to radiate vitality and vigor.

Everyday skin care-keep it consistent

Create a consistent skin-care routine. Regular cleansing rids the skin of excess oils and dirt and sloughs off dead skin cells.

  • If you have dry skin, use a mild exfoliant with a heavier moisturizing cream that contains nut oils or aloe.
  • If your skin is oily, occasionally use an exfoliant with astringent properties and finish with a light, water-based moisturizer. Tea tree and citrus oils help tone skin between washings.
  • If you battle with problem skin, avoid using harsh exfoliants on breakouts. Instead, apply a deep-cleansing mask and a moisturizer with antibacterial ingredients such as tea tree oil and lavender.

Cover up-almost

Let the sun shine, but choose your exposure carefully.

  • A face cream with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or higher should be a mandatory part of your beauty regimen. Look for a cream that matches your skin type and wear it even on cloudy days.
  • Your body does, however, need some sun exposure, as the UV rays from sunlight trigger vitamin D synthesis in the skin. A 20-minute walk or bask in the early morning or late afternoon sun should suffice; you might prefer to wear a hat and let your arms and legs get the rays.

Let it glow

You are what you eat and drink and breathe, so consider this:

  • A healthy diet full of antioxidants A, C, and E helps fend off free radicals from everyday exposure to air pollutants, sun, and stress. Foods rich in vitamin A and vitamin C include brightly colored fruits and vegetables, such as squashes, sweet potatoes, carrots, leafy greens, tomatoes, strawberries, and kiwi. Vitamin E is found in a variety of nuts and their oils and wheat germ.
  • Exercise increases circulation, which helps nourish collagen fibers that give skin its appearance of plumpness, while perspiration from your workout cleanses the skin.
  • Water hydrates the skin from the inside out, so practice drinking enough water that you rarely get thirsty.
  • Avoid smoking and breathing secondhand smoke, which causes blood vessels to constrict, inhibiting blood flow and starving the skin of oxygen.

            I used it all day long for a couple of days and the cold sore never fully developed.. no embarassing scab, no oozing, you really couldn't even see it after I applied. Love it! Would highly recommend this product to anyone!

              Comments about Basic Organics L-Lysine Ointment:

              I'm just gonna say it. I have big lips. NO bones about it. And with big lips come dryness. They get very dry, very quick, especially at night, and ESPECIALLY if I'm breathing through my mouth. I use to use a lip balm from benefit cosmetics to put on my lips at night. It was very thick and soothing and would stay on ALL NIGHT. But they don't make it anymore. So I was searching and searching for something. Vaseline didn't stay on all night, and all the other ones kinda just wore off or my lips kinda "sucked" it all in, like a flower in a dry pot..lol. So I came across this stuff, I thought it would be a good thing to try, because I also can get cold sores (apparently very easily). I think non-cold sore-ers have the virus on their lips and they can pass it to us cold sore people without ever getting it themselves (yeah them). This stuff is MAGIC. MAGIC I tell ya. Not only does it keep my lips moist throughout the night but it minimizes the number of cold sores I get and the length of time they stay. AND, the best part, they stay even less that before my normal regime to make them go away. Typically I can tell the very second a cold sore is about to pop, and I slather on Abreva and pop about 4-5 L-Lysine tablets and continue that regime for a couple of days. That reduces the amount I have to suffer from these ghastly things by a great deal, but now this ointment makes it EVEN SHORTER!. I highly recommend it.

                I have used Expensive cold sore meds, i have even gone to a dermatologist but to no avail.. I have sufferd with severe immune issues relating to the herpes virus. I cannot believe that something so simple and inexpensive and easy to use has solved the problems with sores, pain and severe discomfort. I send jars and jars up to my relatives in Canada as it is not available there yet. THANK YOU SO MUCH

                My family has been using this for many years but it is difficult to find in stores. This is the best thing that we have ever found for cold sore and dry lips. I have even used it on sore chapped hands and bleeding cuticles.

                The ony thing that would make it better would be an easier way to apply it to ones lips.
