Drinking Almond Milk Has Many Benitfites

Almond Milk: Good for Skin*

Almond milk is a has many Benitfites It reduces the risk of diabetes and many hart diseases. It also plays an important role in weight management and energy production. One of its many roles is in promoting healthier and younger looking skin*

Almond Milk as an Antioxidant

Almond milk is an excellent source of vitamin E, a known antioxidant. Antioxidants protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals alter cell genetic code, resulting to mutated proteins. When mutation happens, cancer may develop.

Sun exposure and exposure to environmental and man-made pollutants are harmful to the skin; vitamin E acts as a shield by protecting the skin from these harsh elements. Daily skin application of vitamin E-enriched almond milk lotions and creams before sun exposure helps minimize skin damage.

Vitamin E also has natural healing properties. Almond milk can effectively treat sunburn and other minor burns.

Almond Milk has Anti-Aging Qualities
Aging ,Sun exposure ,wind can damage the skin; it contributes to collagen and elastin .Collagen and elastin are important substances that give the skin its elasticity and firmness. The collagen and elastin supply of the skin are uncontrollable after prolonged exposure to free .As you get older, your body is unable to replenish moisture supply; this is the primary cause of wrinkles, fine lines and other skin blemishes.

Vitamin E, present in almond milk, protects the skin from the harmful effects of free radicals; this makes the skin healthy and younger-looking.

Almond milk, in the form of topical solutions, is an excellent treatment for dry, flaky skin. Well-moisturized skin prevents premature aging.

Almond Milk Hydrates the Skin

One of the common skin problems–that leads to other problems–is dry skin. Vitamin B2, also known as riboflavin is found in abundance in almond milk. It helps the tissues of the skin, hair and nails to use oxygen. Riboflavin also assists in synthesizing tryptophan—an amino acid—and producing niacin in the process. Niacin, also referred to as vitamin B3, aids in circulation. The skin benefits greatly from proper circulation. Niacin also helps in hydrating the skin by trapping moisture in the cells.

Almond Milk’s Role in Oil Regulation

Some common skin problems, such as acne, blackheads and whiteheads, are caused by dirt and oil trapped in the pores of the skin. Almond milk contains essential fatty acids. They are important in controlling the amount of oil secreted by the sebaceous glands.

Almond milk isavailable as a beverage or as a component of several personal care products. Regardless of how it is consumed, almond milk is beneficial in so many ways.

SMASH BOX bb cream : REVIEW

Smash box bb cream stands for Blemish Balm Cream. The was created in Germany then spread out through Asia, Japan china . bb creams is a hot products for Asians.

bb creams have been around a long time , all it is just a cream with a foundation.

I purchased mine at sophora for 40.00 in color medium. Medium was a good choice since i have been applying self tanner all over my body now my face looks tan also .

The color covers well it has a thick constancy. When first applied the finish look is smooth even tone yet very light sheer finish . After two hours or so it is mattifing and set in my creases not happy about that.

In my honest opinion this product is overrated and for $40.00 plus tax that is a bit steep for what the product does . After this one finishes i don’t plan to buy another smash box bb cream.

However i will buy another brand until i find the right one that is perfect for my skin.

Pros of smash box bb cream he right one that is for my skin .
thick consistency
bendable
sheer
pigmented
creamy
SPF 35
five shades selection
everyday or just around the house foundation
were under foundation or just bb cream

Cons of smash box bb cream
drys to matte
to expensive
sets in creases
not good for combination skin
does not moisten my skin
