  3. Leave mixture on face for 1 minute.
  4. Saturate a clean washcloth with warm water.
  5. Place towel on face and leave for 15–30 seconds.

Three Tips to “Get Your Glow” for great looking skin!

Hydrate, Healthy Eating & Sleep

Hydrate

Make sure to continue to drink water all day. I love to make things interesting by adding Young Living lemon one day, grapefruit and then tangerine. I also change it up by adding cut cucumbers or sliced portions of my favorite fruits to my water.

Eat Healthy

You should try to eat antioxidant rich foods: leafy greens, legumes, blueberries, cucumbers, celery, nuts, apricots, fish, etc. I even try to juice wheatgrass, and drink it in the morning before eating or drinking anything else. These foods will help your overall health and keep your skin looking beautiful.

Sleep

Make sure to get enough sleep so you can rejuvenate your body and skin. I need to get between 7 and 9 hours of sleep a night. The Mayo Clinic has a great resource to see how much sleep you need each night, depending upon your age and other factors.
