Foods to eat for healthy & glowing skin
Apr 19, 2017
We are crossing our fingers (and toes) for a long and sunny summer here at Magnitone HQ. We are sure you will agree that nothing beats that post holiday glow.
If the thought of ditching make-up all summer long fills you with fear then read on...
We wanted to share some tips on how to embrace your natural skin this summer, whilst staying SunSmart and protecting your skin from harmful UV rays.
It can be incredibly reviving to get some mood-boosting vitamin D into our lives, which is not called “The Happy Vitamin” for nothing. Interestingly, many Londoners are actually vitamin D deficient due to our… uhhh… less than ideal weather most of the year.
Vitamin D is essential for regulating the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body, essential for keeping bones, skin and teeth healthy.
It has also been suggested that Vitamin D can help boost your mood by increasing the amount of monoamines in the brain, which has been proven to help treat depression.
So how do we ensure that our body is receiving enough vitamin D whilst protecting our skin from the sun?
The key lies in ensuring that you are using a strong SPF (at least 30), even on cloudy days and only staying out in the sun for short amounts of time. Baking yourself for 5 hours in the park may sound like a great idea, but it is a sure fire way to damage your skin, putting you at risk of skin cancer and premature ageing.
Invest in a good hat and cover up for your holidays away, trust us - your skin will thank you for it later.
FREE THE FRECKLE
Free the what? I hear you say.
To us, ‘freeing the freckle’ means wearing less make-up and celebrating what makes you unique- freckles and all.
From stories of children using lemon juice to fade them, to people hiding them under buckets of foundations and concealers… freckles have often been seen as "imperfections".
Our question is… why? Freckles are nothing more than sun-kisses so here at Magnitone we say free the freckle and let your unique features shine.
To help you on this quest, we’ve designed the Brazilian Bombshell collection of daily cleansing and toning brushes to include NEW Pore Perfection Brush Head which deep cleanses, combats oily skin and breakouts so you can have the confidence to go Barefaced all summer long.
Dare to Go Make-Up Free
Pores can easily become blocked over summer with sweat, oil, SPF and you guessed it, make-up. Why not give your skin a break this summer and ditch the foundation for a au natural summer glow or (if this fills your with fear) a light tinted moisturiser.
Wishing you all a healthy, happy and sun-smart summer! Bring on the Happy Vitamin.
