Step 2: Color Therapy
Introduce the actual colors of the rainbow to your skin. One method is through blue and red light therapy. Different wavelengths of light within the color spectrum can have different effects on the skin. Blue light attacks acne bacteria and is a good alternative for those that can’t tolerate creams and pills. Red light has anti-aging powers and is shown to stimulate collagen and elastin. In-office visits can cost thousands of dollars, but handheld devices that cost just under $250 are a more cost-effective method of benefiting from this kind of therapy.
Step 3: Deep Tissue Diet
If wrinkles, sagging, bags under your eyes and cellulite are major concerns for you, firm up your skin cells by eating foods high in anthocyanin, an antioxidant that fights free radical damage and builds collagen. Purple varieties of potatoes, carrots and tomatoes all have different types of anthocyanin.
A new health food, the kakadu plum, or the billygoat plum, which is native to Australia, is said to contain the highest level of anthocyanin and is believed to be the richest known natural source of vitamin C. While the kakadu plum fruit is not yet a vailable in stores, but there is a drink mix that you can find online. Just add water to reap the benefits of tighter, firmer skin.
