Dermatologists say that only 20% of the people God has “given” dry skin. The remaining 80% is dry it for life.

Causes of dry skin may be different: the weather and climatic conditions, improper care, skin care, age-related changes, stress, and, of course, the wrong food.
If the age and weather, unfortunately, we are not subject to, above all else, affecting the skin, it can work.
Lack of vitamins and polyunsaturated fats contribute to dry skin, so it is important that your food was the most diverse. In this post, presented 7 foods to include in your diet in autumn and winter to nourish the skin and give it a healthy and fresh look.
  1. Avocado. Natural oils contained in avocado, can transform dry skin. By the way, dermatologists in the appearance of dry skin blamed lack polinasyschschennyh fat. Avocado just did help to make up their supply. A high content of vitamins A and E helps to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. фото3
  2. Salmon. This fish – the leader in omega-3 (polyunsaturated fats)). Omega-3 is a “foundation” for beautiful hair, skin and nails. If you are a vegetarian, then the portion of omega-3 you can get in walnuts, salmon are slightly inferior. foto_salmondry walnut fruit studio isolated closeup
  3. A decoction of rose and marigold. Doctors do not recommend drinking the night tea or coffee because of the high content of caffeine. Try replacing “afternoon tea” on herbal tea. Particular attention should be paid to the calendula and rose. Dermatologists, in particular Amy Nyuburger (member of the American Academy of Dermatology), argue that the marigold and rose petals – a great helper in the fight against dry skin. As in the case of avocado, the broth can be used both inside and outside as a tonic. 22bd89cdc139 67_0_enl
  4. Coconut milk and oil. These two products – a real treasure treasure in the form of healthy fats and vitamins. The coconut milk contains vitamins A, E, B and C. In addition, coconut milk is required for the body element, copper, which is very difficult to obtain from other foods. Coconut oil is also rich in vitamins, but it is worth remembering that it can clog pores, so if you carry heavy kamedogennye oil, then it should get round. 152_zoom
  5. Sweet potato. Or sweet potatoes that can compete with carrots for the title of leader of the content of vitamin A. In addition, sweet potatoes there is vitamin C, which helps the immune system to resist the cold, wind and microbes in the autumn-winter period. sp6_zps7e733724

My perfect imperfections.


God gave me a long eyelashes, but I had not realized this. I hated her eyelashes. To me they seemed too long, and I’ve always wanted short. Once upon a time even wanted to cut them with scissors (it seems I was very stupid, or someone else, but obviously not a normal person :)). But over time, receiving compliments, which I have long eyelashes, which are curved and so on in me woke up a kind of peacock, and I left them. Becoming older, they become less dense. Again, I them dissatisfied.

Having tried a heap of options for make-up, I found my daily mejk. Now I use mascara and eyeliner. My absolute favorite – a mascara for the eyes Maybelline NY Volum ‘express Colossal and eyeliner Bourjois Khol & Contour Mineral.
Mascara for the eyes of Maybelline gives lashes a good amount that many species do not provide the carcass and it gives this brand a significant advantage.
I have sensitive eyes and it is very difficult to choose a good eye pencil. Here is my choice, and fell to the brand Bourjois. It is easy to apply, does not scratch. But one drawback it still is, it is not enough for a long time. This is probably the only thing I do not like it.

And what brand of mascara and eyeliner you use?
