4 Minerals Essential for Gorgeous Skin

Did you know that your body requires specific minerals for your skin? Of course you did. Do you know what they are? Here's a reminder:

Our bodies need 4 minerals in particular for gorgeous skin: iodine, silicon, sulfur, and zinc. If you get the right amounts of these minerals, chances are your skin will be more resilient, luminous, and healthy.

Where can you get these minerals? You can purchase expensive facial products that are advertised on even more expensive television and internet ads, or you can get these minerals from natural sources.

These natural sources include: Iodine~eating fish, shellfish, kelp, or blue-green algae; eating sunflower seeds; and using iodized salt or sea salt. Using our Ocean Splendor Salt Scrub helps too, it contains Dead Sea Salts. Or try a Seaweed soap or bodywrap. Silicon~eating apples, berries, beets, onions, almonds, peanuts, grapes, and more. Sulfur~eating turnips, soybeans, lean meats and fish, eggs, asparagus, onions, celery, and more. Zinc~Echinacea root, wheat germ, pumpkin seeds, milk, eggs, oysters, beans, green leafy veggies, and more.

It's as easy as that!

What are the benefits, you ask? How about increasing oxygen consumption and metabolic rate in your skin and aiding in healing skin infections--which help prevent roughness and premature wrinkles!

Without these minerals, your skin may be dry, have poor tone, be slow to heal, and have poor skin metabolism.

So eat some fish, use some sea salt, have some sunflower seeds! Be healthy in this new year without spending a lot of money doing it.
