Remain consistent in applying skin care serums and creams, but also try an excellent internal treatment that improves the appearance and texture of your skin, while also contributing to your overall health.
Do you invest more time in your evening or morning skin care routine? Both are very important: morning skin care helps you start a productive day and provides reassurance that your skin is hydrated and protected, and the evening routine helps you end your day with a happy complexion.
But what if you could improve your evening routine so that when you wake up, your skin looks better than ever? Creams and serums are excellent, but they cannot do it all: one of the secrets of a flawless complexion is the reduction of general inflammation in the body, something that only an internal cure is able to accomplish. Inflammation is caused by stress, pollution, a sedentary lifestyle and eating processed foods such as burgers, pizza, croissants and so on.
These factors not only cause skin problems such as acne, dark circles, undereye bags and melasma, but also more serious conditions that endanger overall health; this is why it is particularly important to keep them under control.
We can take action by consuming less processed foods, practicing meditation and exercising regularly, as all these habits contribute significantly to reducing stress levels. Another great solution is to eat foods with anti-inflammatory properties every day. One of the most powerful spices in this category is turmeric, according to a Mind Body Green expert Kulreet Chaudhary, a neurologist and specialist in integrative medicine.
The expert recommends a drink made from vegetable milk and turmeric that became popular in 2020 and has since been nicknamed “golden milk”.
According to the recommendation, vegetable milk (coconut, almond, rice, etc.) is the best choice, because it is lighter and easier to digest, especially for people who suffer from lactose intolerance. However, if you tolerate cow’s milk well, you may use it, too. According to Chaudhary, “Once you’ve tried golden milk, you’ll be hooked on the way it settles your mind and body at the end of the day and invites your entire being to relax and let go of any worries as you drift off to sleep.”
Here is the recipe for turmeric milk that will reduce inflammation in your body and help you wake up with glowing skin:
1. Heat up your favorite type of milk.
2. Add a tablespoon of turmeric and some ground black pepper (improves the absorption of turmeric).
3. Remove the milk from the stove, add a little honey, cinnamon and cardamom powder. You may also add collagen powder if you use it regularly, to further improve the appearance of your skin and maintain it young and bright.
Enjoy the drink two hours before bedtime.
