Boost Your Skin With Spices

Last week I wrote about water consumption and skin health. I am a Medical Esthetician and use advanced treatments in my studio to prevent and decrease the signs of aging, and treat acne etc, but I also believe in taking care of your skin inside out. So Spice it up!!

Turmeric is a bright-orange antioxidant that studies show fight free radicals. Sprinkle this colorful spice on veggies or mix in soups and sauces!

Basil is an herb that not only tastes good, but studies have shown that basil can be a blemish eraser. The herb's oil helps combat the bacteria that causes pimples. Try it! Boil a handful of fresh basil leaves in 1 cup of water for 10 minutes. Let it cool, and dip a cotton ball into the liquid and apply on breakout areas!

Fennel stalks can be replaced in receipes that cause for celery. Studies show that Fennel does everything from detoxify the skin to exfoliate skin cells!
