Tips for Radiant Skin

Radiant
When women understand that feminine beauty is designed to reflect hormonal wellness, they want to maintain this ideal balance throughout their lives. They want to look youthful and radiant, at any age.
 
We’ve put together some tips to emphasize that beautiful, radiant look you desire. Keeping true to the Venus Lifestyle is the main factor to keeping your hormones balanced so that your skin can glow, your mood can be lifted, and your body can reflect the radiance of feminine vitality. 
 
 
Eating for the Venus Effect
 
One of the keys in keeping your skin beautifully radiant all year long is proper nutrition. Eating foods filled with nutrients that enhance the Venus Effect encourages your skin to glow. One of the best categories of foods you can eat for ideal hormonal balance is protein from plant sources. Foods that house the seed of the plant – are rich in these proteins and their benefits can be passed along to us.  Most of the protein from plant sources is derived from the reproductive parts of the plant and is intimately associated with powerful molecules known as phytoestrogens. The phytoestrogens in plants lower insulin resistance, enhance fertility and stimulate hormonal balance. A few examples include soybeans (e.g. edamame), chickpeas (e.g. hummus), seeds (e.g. flax or sunflower seeds), and nuts - all rich in protein and phytoestrogens.
 
Best of all, these foods are easy to access, make great snacks and stave off hunger, as protein, along with healthy fats, keeps us satisfied much longer than sugary or carb heavy alternatives! One of our personal favorites is hummus with whole-wheat pita or, even better, thick slices of cucumber.  Edamame hummus is a great twist as well.

Beauty and Skincare
 
Taking care of your skin is an important element in any anti-aging routine. However, here at VENeffect, we know that the secret to slowing or even reversing the aging process for women is more than skin deep. While most anti-aging companies target aging from environmental causes, and great progress has been made in protecting from sun damage, we discovered that every woman faces hormonal aging and very little has been available to address this unique way we age.
 
We look at anti-aging from more than just the surface - we created a unique phytoestrogen technology to tackle hormonal aging by restoring skin to the peak of its hormonal vitality. Our products have the power to help your skin reach the radiance and luminosity you desire. When you combine the VENeffect skin care regimen with the Venus lifestyle – these results are even stronger (and faster)! Our approach with VENeffect resulted in the 2013 Anti-Aging Award from Good Housekeeping among many other accolades.

The Venus Lifestyle
 
Getting ample amounts of sleep has an immediate and significant impact on looking younger and refreshed – while lack of restful sleep not only ages our appearance, but directly contributes to increased stress levels and can disrupt hormonal balance.
 
 
Are you one of the women who are unsure whether having a regular sleeping schedule really helps you lead a better life? Well, here are some reasons why sleep is so important in leading a radiant life:
  1. It keeps our hormone levels balanced.
  2. Reduces stress by allowing us to relax and regenerate.
  3. Keeps our heart healthy. Lack of sleep has been associated with increased blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
  4. Makes us be more active and alert the next day helping our skin look refreshed and dewy.
  5. Helps our mental health. Getting enough sleep regulates the production of serotonin, which affects our happiness and productivity levels.
