Overwhelming Benefits from Omega-3

Nowadays, we see Omega-3s everywhere. But why do I need it in my life? Well listen up, because I’m about to break it down for you. Omega-3s provide fatty acids that can be very beneficial to you, in more ways than one. Omega-3 fatty acids have been studied quite extensively, and here is what they have found! First keep in mind, there are 2 major types of Omega-3 that we will mention: DHA and EPA.

Omega-3 fatty acids:
1. Could help prevent heart problems and promote a healthy heart.
2. Some Omega-3 fatty acids can help reduce the chance of dementia and promote brain health.
3. Can help fight anxiety and depression.
4. Omega-3 is very important during pregnancy and is pertinent to healthy brain development in infants.
5. Omega-3s can combat inflammation in all areas of the body, especially inflammation that is chronic which can lead to other diseases later.
6. Can fight autoimmune diseases.
7. They may improve joint and bone health, increasing the strength of the bones due to an increase in calcium.
8. The fatty acids in Omega-3 are very good for the skin.
a. One type of Omega-3 (DHA) is responsible for maintaining healthy cell membranes, which create supple, soft, moist, and wrinkle-free skin.
b. EPA is another type of Omega-3 that has a lot of power when it comes to the skin. EPA has all of the following effects.
– It controls oil production and hydration in the skin.
– It can prevent the little red bumps on your skin from hyperkeratinization of hair follicles.
– Can prevent premature aging of the skin.
– EPA also has been seen to prevent acne.
– Can also protect your skin from the damaging effects of sun-exposure, by blocking the substances that deteriorate the collagen in the skin after being in the sun.

The Miracle of Micellar Water

Micellar water isn’t just water- even though it feels like natural water. It’s way more powerful than you think! It’s composed of gentle microscopic oil molecules called micelles (so this is where it gets its name), in soft water that attach to dirt, grime, makeup, and other grubby things your skin is covered in. Yet unlike soap and cleansers, it simply dissolves this unwanted gunk, instead of stripping your skin. That’s one thing I love about it- my skin feels clean, but not deprived of the stuff my face still needs!

What’s more, this special “water” doesn’t even need water to rinse off! This cleanser originates in France, where they have harsh tap water that damages the skin. So, the French love the miscellar water. And I do too.

To use it, just put a small amount on a cotton pad, then wipe your skin clean (and wipe away your worries)! You’ll be left feeling delightfully refreshed. Feel free to use it in the morning after using a heavy night treatment while sleeping, or maybe even after washing your face!

So are you looking for a cleanser/ toner that doesn’t hurt your face more than it helps? Looking for something that helps your skin breathe again? Give miscellar water a chance!

Matis Paris has a new Essential Micellar Water, an anti-pollution face make-up remover! I suggest giving it a try!


Diet Hacks That Will Shrink Your Pores And Waist

Happy Diet, Happy Skin? Wait What?

Here are some tips, if your skin is not improving, no  matter what you apply. It might not be what you’re putting on the outside, but what you’re putting on the inside!

Consume Oily fish like salmon or tuna

Beauty benefit: Youthful Skin

Eating fish provides your body with biotin, a B vitamin that, among its many functions, produces fatty acids and metabolizes amino acids (the building blocks of protein). A deficiency of biotin can cause, among other things, scaly skin—which, clearly, no one wants.


Beauty benefit: Dewy skin

Eat-right evidence: Skin cells contain mostly water, so it only makes sense to drink up on H20! Hello! Our bodies are made up of 70% water. What makes you think you can get a great complexion without feeding your body what it needs most! Aim for at least 70 oz of water a day.

Avoid Milk 

Beauty Benefit: Less Acne

Guys. Really. Milk = Pregnant Cows = Hormones = Excess Sebum = Acne. Simple as that. Give it a week, you’ll see the difference.

Still don’t believe it? In 2005, researchers studied data from the famous Nurses Health Study II, and found that participants who drank more milk as teens had much higher rates of severe acne than those who had little or no milk as teens.

Avoid Sugar

Beauty Benefit: Less ACNE!

You may have already suspected that sugar is related to breakouts. Some studies now suggest that there may be a link. This doesn’t mean that if you eat a cookie you’re going to get a pimple. It comes down to how much sugar you’re eating in a day—particularly at any one time. If you consume a soda and a candy bar, for example, you’re likely spiking your blood sugar levels, and you could break out hours later. If you suspect sugar could be a culprit for you, try to cut back even by one sugary drink a day to notice a difference.
High-glycemic foods: These are foods that break down quickly in the body, triggering an insulin spike and raising blood sugar levels. They trigger hormonal fluctuations and inflammation—both of which encourage acne. We’re talking foods like white bread, processed breakfast cereals, white rice, pretzels, potato chips, cookies and cakes, etc. Choose low glycemic-index foods instead, like vegetables, whole grains, sweet potatoes, and most fruits.

Avoid Junk food:

Beauty Benefit: EVERYTHING.

For the same reasons stated above (hormonal fluctuations, blood sugar levels), junk foods are on the list to avoid if you’re trying to clear up your skin. Even if the skin change is minimal, the difference in the scale won’t be.

5 Items Never To Leave On Vacation Without

Alas, your long-awaited trip is right around the corner, but now you’ve realized you spent all that time waiting and now you’re behind on packing. Sound familiar? We’ve all been there. Procrastination at its finest. But as women (or men) we find ourselves especially stressed on packing beauty essentials. “Should I take this, should I leave that…” Well here are 5 items ladies, that you should NEVER leave the house without

1. Sunscreen

Whether you are going to a gorgeous beach or to the tallest mountain, your sunscreen is something you should never forget. In fact, you should already have SPF on the moment you board that plane! Trust us, the last thing you want is to have to worry about unnecessary peeling and redness your entire trip.

2. Hand Sanitizer

The airplane is one of a few places where it’s totally okay to be a germaphobe. I’ve personally gotten on the plane only to wipe down everything that my body would touch, and I spent 95% of the flight with my arms crossed so I didn’t touch anything, with my elbows painfully tucked to avoid sharing the armrest. If you’re going to apply skin products (which necessitates face touching) you’re going to want to sterilize what little personal space you have. We also recommend using hand sanitizer every 30 minutes or so; you never know what you may have touched!

Face wipes are one of our travel essential simply because of their convenience! Sometimes after long days all we want to do is go to bed, but packing travel-sized makeup wipes ensures you have an easy way to remove your makeup before bed! LADIES: We cannot stress this enough, DO NOT go to sleep with any traces of makeup. If you’re one of those who’s able to wash your face with proper cleanser in an airplane restroom sink, we salute you. But if you’re like the rest of us and would prefer to minimize any time spent in those closets, face wipes are key.

This is the stuff you’ll want to slather on every hour or so. Especially when you’re 30,000 feet in the air, seriously. We religiously apply a moisturizer any chance we get on the flight, your skin will thank you. Not just on the flight though, you want to keep applying this at least twice a day throughout your trip.
