Interesting thing is longevity – we all would like to live longer and at the same time we are so vain and scared that we will end up looking as the people we see from time to time on TV celebrating their 100 and something birthday. We all would love to reach that age, but deep down we would like to look like we did in our 40s or at least 50s. And not surprisingly, Mother Nature didn’t miss this one either and all the natural miracle foods and supplements that prolong our lives actually can make our skin more radiant, our hair more shiny and beautify us all over. A healthy person radiates happiness and emits that glow which pulls us toward that person, the same way a magnetic field pulls a metal object closer to the magnet.
Dr. Essen, dermatologist from Sweden, developed a bee pollen lotion that helps inhibit skin disorders and diminishes wrinkles and fine lines. He states, “Pollen seems to prevent premature aging of the skin and stimulates growth of new skin tissue, offering effective protection against dehydration. The complexion becomes younger looking, less vulnerable to wrinkles, smoother and healthier with the use of bee pollen.” And this is no surprise, since bee pollen is rich in nucleic acids, DNA and RNA, substances that nourish the skin and prevent premature aging.
So let’s skip the spa this week and try these easy to make at home recipes, to look younger and radiant.
