Cold weather triggers dry skin for millions of women, but thankfully, there’s a simple way to restore your glow: black currant seed oil. It’s rich in gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), a fatty acid that ratchets up skin’s moisture content to diminish wrinkles and sagging. I advise taking two gel capsules of black currant seed oil twice daily. You can also open a capsule and apply it directly to your face and neck both morning and night, letting it soak in before applying moisturizer. Bonus: GLA is proven to cut the liver’s production of cholesterol.
One of the easiest ways to foster joy and good health: tailoring your clothes to your unique needs. When deciding what to wear, consider the radiant energy of the colors in your closet. Each one has an effect on your body, and color therapy has been used for centuries in the treatment of disease and injury. Anxious? Pick a blue top, which promotes tranquility and calmness. Sad? Add a pop of yellow. The sunny color has been shown to boost cheer. Grieving? Choose pink, which can help heal sadness and loss.
