Avoid sun spots without avoiding the sun

Don’t leave home without SPF. If it’s not the crux of your routine, dark spot and anti-aging products don’t stand a chance, says Naomi Furgiuele, senior director at Johnson & Johnson. “If you’re exposing skin to the sun without protecting it, you’re not really fixing anything because you’re causing more damage.”

Work out those varicose veins

“Exercise is the number one prescription for healthy veins, but not all exercises are created equal,” says Adrian Veinot, a level four personal trainer with GoodLife Fitness Park Lane in Halifax. He advises walking, running and biking, which stretch and strengthen calf muscles and improve blood flow as a natural skin remedy. But classic leg lifts are also effective. Lie on your back, slowly raise one leg, pause and repeat with the opposite leg.

Treating Adult Acne, Naturally

A good diet equals good skin. Two things that are instantly noticeable on registered holistic nutritionist and real-food media expert Kim D’Eon’s Instagram feed (@kimdeoncom) are her mouth-watering healthy food pics and her clear, beautiful skin. “Reducing inflammation from the inside out is a key component to fighting acne,” says D’Eon.

Natural skin remedy? Ground flaxseed is one of her blemish-fighting pantry essentials. “These little super-seeds are super-high in omega-3 fatty acids, which are powerfully anti-inflammatory,” she says. “They’re also great at balancing hormones.” Aim for two tablespoons a day – you can add them to smoothies, porridge, soups and salads.
