Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay
Want a chemical peel…without the chemicals? Clays have been used for centuries to beautify and refresh the skin. In fact, Cleopatra used clay from the Nile river and the Arabian desert over 1800 years ago as part of her beauty ritual. This powerful bentonite clay comes from Death Valley, California, where it is sun- dried for up to six months in temperatures that sometimes reach 134 degrees. Use it in conjunction with apple cider vinegar to pull toxins and poisons from the skin for a fresh and smoother complexion.  www.aztec-secret.com

Wrinkle Reducing Smoothie
One unique and delicious way to fight wrinkles naturally is to make a wrinkle reducing smoothie. Just take 2 tablespoons of Almond Butter, one cup of almond milk, one frozen bananas (no peels) and two squares of dark chocolate and blend together until frothy. Almonds are a rich source of vitamin E, which helps to promote skin health and elasticity. They also contain Vitamin A, Vitamin B, Manganese, Calcium and Zinc (source: USDA per Wiki). The interplay between Vitamin E and A may help when it comes to nutrient absorption. Also, bananas contain potassium to regulate hydration and deliver moisture to the skin. The addition of dark chocolate delivers rich antioxidants that skin loves.  Quick tip: before you freeze the bananas, mash a little to put under eyes to smooth fine lines on delicate skin.
