5 Surprisingly Good Things for Your Skin

Taking good care of her skin is one of the most important things in every woman’s beauty routine. But, let us introduce you to 5 things you’d never think could work wonders for your skin, but they so do!

We all have our little tricks and remedies and know what works for us

1. Sex

It’s well known that having sex improves blood circulation, which helps to pump oxygen to your skin and make it brighter. So, sex can basically give your skin that perfect glow. It also helps control acne, as it balances out your hormone levels, eliminates toxins, and cleanses your pores (that is if things do get as hot and steamy as they should).

Studies have also shown that getting it on in the sack can actually take a few years off your appearance later on in life, because sex is known to boost collagen production. There are more studies that show various ways that sex can be beneficial for health, but do we really need to keep selling it to you? Get busy!

2. Chocolate

Well, in this case you can have too much of a good thing! So, as much as 40 grams of chocolate a day can actually be very good for your heart, skin and health in general. However, overdoing it can cause breakouts on people with certain skin types.

This is because of the butter that’s mixed in with the chocolate. Because of that, opting for dark chocolate is a smart choice. It would be good for your skin, as cocoa butter generally is. Haven’t you heard of chocolate facials? They’re offered in many salons and are very popular, as chocolate seals moisture in your skin and makes it softer!

3. Strawberries

Strawberries are rich in vitamin C, which is why they can help in making wounds heal faster and boost collagen production. Collagen, as we all know, is an important protein for skin.

Furthermore, recent studies have shown that strawberries contain ellagic acid. Ellagic acid can help in protecting your skin against harmful UV rays that can cause cancer, sun spots and faster skin aging.

4. Lemon

Lemon juice is a natural skin tonic and cleanser. You can use it every day to keep your skin clear and fresh, and it works just as good as any expensive face product. This is because the citrus acid works on cleaning your skin and getting rid of any dead cells, and also reduces your pores so you get a flawless complexion.

5. Olive Oil

Olive oil is filled with antioxidants, and vitamins A and E. That’s why it deserves an honorable place in every skin care beauty routine.

It can make the world of difference when it comes to the dark circles under your eyes after just a couple of days, and works better than any cream. It makes the skin softer and is a perfect substitute for night cream. Also, olive oil is the ultimate product when it comes to make up removal.

  • Charcoal should be on this list! Charcoal is actually very good for acne prone skin, exfoliating, and smoothing the skin out.
