We often get asked about natural beauty tips and tricks. So, this month we’ve put together our top tips to help you look beautiful, naturally!
Live the Hopewood way
Hopewood’s philosophy promotes vegetarianism, plenty of water and freshly prepared juices, food combining, regular exercise and relaxation. It also emphasises the power of fresh air and spending some time in our natural environment. All of these factors can impact the look and feel of your skin.
Eat and drink thoughtfully
Your diet can have a significant impact on your skin health, and how well you feel generally. A diet rich in dark leafy greens, citrus fruits and plenty of water can work wonders for your skin. So avoid a diet of fast foods high in sugar, refined products, trans fats and oils, or pre-packaged commercially produced foods full of chemicals and artificial ingredients, which are all likely to cause inflammation and increase signs of aging in your skin.
The human body has an incredible capacity to heal itself and juice cleansing – going without solid food – can help to flush out and eliminate poisons and toxins, balance the body and improve overall health and wellbeing.
Juice therapy, also called ‘cleansing’ or ‘detoxing’ helps to clear metabolic waste products from our body and accelerates healing, it boosts the nervous system, cleanses the liver which in turn cleans the blood.
Juice therapy helps cleanse your system while enabling your digestion to take some much-needed ‘time out’ from the hard work of processing a normal diet. It’s the best way to give your gut a chance to start healing itself. This process is likely to help you look and feel healthy and glowing!
Get moving each day!
Regular exercise has many benefits. It can help improve your health, reduce your risk of developing a number of illnesses and can improve your overall quality of life.
It’s important to understand your current level of fitness and to identify the type of activities that can help you achieve the ideal fitness for your body type. There are suitable fitness plans for all ages, fitness levels and abilities – the key is to start and stick to it.
Exercise can also help you achieve your ideal weight, making you look and feel your best!
Reconnecting with nature can help you unwind, clear your mind, heal your body and even boost creativity. Who doesn’t enjoy the sensation of warm sun on their skin or that invigorating feeling of fresh air in their lungs?
We recommend spending some time in nature each day. It will help you achieve a sense of natural wellbeing. It’s also a key aspect of the Hopewood lifestyle.
Stress can cause a number of health problems and can seed-up the ageing process, making you look and feel tired. Spending time in nature can help you achieve mindfulness and can help reduce your stress levels, making you look and feel younger.
