Skin: You might never be able to take it off, exchange it or buy an updated version. You’re stuck with it for a lifetime but you can definitely Choose to take better care of it. Here’s How!!
OK. Let’s get past the first and foremost hurdle which on our parts we cannot change. I’ll give it to you straight: Your genes play a large part in how your skin reacts to sun, wind, how quickly it heals itself and how well it ages. Our genes are our blueprint and it’s always good practice to gather as much information from your family as you can. You never know when it might help you in the future.
I’d like to investigate 2 main culprits of failing health – sugar and fats.
The skin is our largest organ and what we choose shows on the outside. Cooking Pot the iPhone App is a handy tool which provides Quick and Easy to make recipes that are Wholesome and Nutritious and feed us with Real Food.
I have included 2 natural remedy recipes to try at home. They are great for psoriasis, dry flaky skin, acne and wrinkles. I use these all the time because I have reactions to commercially made creams – if they work for me they might work for you too!!

Now let’s investigate the things we can do to help our skin.
- How we choose to Eat
It’s important to eat as many fresh and nutritious raw vegetables and nuts. Artichoke, Avocado, beetroot, kale, legumes, red grapes are of particular benefit with high levels of antioxidants, non-inflammatory and cleansing properties to help rid our bodies of toxins and free-radicals which cause most of the damage inside and out. Following an alkaline lifestyle high in pesticide free raw vegetables is very important. That means no processed foods and no sugars. A lot of the processed foods have high amounts of sugar and bad fats. By Sugar I mean all white flour baked goods and sugar such as white sugar, icing sugar, raw sugar, brown sugar. Please read the labels and you’ll be surprised at the amount of sugars present in food! Fructose from corn syrup is one of the most harmful but eating fruit provides enough fibre to process the sugar.
a) Fructose does not go through the Hypothalamus that tells your brain that you’ve eaten something and you might want to stop eating because you’re full. Instead, it by-passes even your stomach and goes straight for the liver working it very hard. We’ll stop there before I get carried away.
b) If the fats we consume are not medium-chain saturated fatty acids they become free-radicals once they react. This is usually achieved through heating or cooking. Free-radicals then attack all cells in our body. I choose to cook with coconut oil which is a medium-chain saturated fatty acid. I have not altered anyone’s recipes on Cooking Pot the iPhone App but I have substituted cooking oils for coconut oil and have found no issues.
OK, so it all comes back to home-cooking and home-cooking from scratch and this is where Cooking Pot the iPhone App makes it so, so EASY!! It’s always on you, gives you a ready made Shopping List and helps you cook Healthy, Nutritious, Sustainable meals with easy to follow recipes when you’re on the go!! How easy is That?
1. Banana Mash: Bananas are not only delicious but can be used as a facial mask. Choose the ones with black spots (anti-carcinogenic). Spread evenly onto your face and leave for 30 minutes. Rinse.
2. Coconut Spa: I was once told to keep a jar of coconut oil in the kitchen, in the bathroom and in the bedroom. We spoke about the kitchen. In the bathroom once out of the shower massage coconut oil into skin including face while still warm and wet. You will hardly need a towel afterwards. The coconut oil locks the water in and leaves skin feeling silky and smooth. This is a great wrinkle treatment and doesn’t leave you greasy!!
Please work the Bedroom part out for yourself!!
