- SHEET MASKS
For a quickie face mask, a sheet mask will do the trick. It’s a mask that’s cool and infused with the liquid face cocktail of your choice with hydrating ingredients. It works by trapping all the active ingredients in on the skin. The moisture is locked in rather than evaporating. Sheet masks should stay on for 15 to 25 minutes. Any longer than that and the sheet will reabsorb the moisture from the skin.
- CREPEY SKIN
Crepey skin has a thin, wrinkled surface that resembles crepe paper on forearms and upper chest. The best way to prevent it is to wear sunblock and cover your skin. The best way to treat it naturally is to moisturize, exfoliate, use gentle soap, and eat a healthy diet. Other ways to treat it are to use retinoids, antioxidants, alpha-hydroxy acids, and beta-hydroxy acids.

The best part is the cooling sensation and that it’s full of vitamins and minerals.
- OLIVE OIL
Olive oil contains a high concentration of antioxidants, including vitamins A and E. These antioxidants protect the skin from damage by fighting off free radicals that attack cells and erode collagen and elastin. Antioxidants are essential anti-aging ingredients and are an excellent moisturizer for every skin type. The rich nutrients are absorbed, allowing the oil to heal damaged skin, reduce wrinkles, and improve texture.
- METABOLISM-BOOSTING HYDRATION
Our hydration level directly affects our metabolism. When we are dehydrated, it effects the efficiency of our metabolism and slows it down. In turn, if your metabolism is sluggish, you can jump start it by hydrating with water. Another important fact is that when we are dehydrated, it restricts our body’s ability to utilize fat as fuel. Drink two to three liters of water a day.
