A variety of nutrients such as vitamins and minerals keep you feeling your best and provides optimal body function. Vitamin E is one vitamin that’s good for your overall health and is especially mentioned in relation to the skin. This vitamin is an antioxidant, which are substances in the body that fight the effects of free radicals. Free radicals are produced from the environment through pollution, smoking, the foods we eat, chemicals we ingest and the simple process of aging.

After swallowing or chewing a breast enlargement pill the ingredients must go through the entire digestive system and then travel throughout the whole body before reaching the breasts. This whole process can result in a long delay in the desired growth of new breast tissue. The firmness and elasticity of breast skin will stay the same and not be improved by pills or capsules. Some women experience allergic reactions such as skin breakouts and indigestion causing gastro-intestinal discomfort when taking oral products. When you consider that some breast enlargement pills can take as long as 6 months to produce good results, it becomes obvious that they are often low grade, low performing products — meaning that the percentage of phytoestrogenic herbs they contain is insufficient.

If you have stretch marks, burn marks or acne scarring you are most likely aware of all of the products and services on the market that claim to get rid of them. Even though these marks are not harmful to your health, they can detract from an otherwise beautiful skin and appearance.
Stretchmarks can be caused during puberty. This period of hormonal change and rapid growth pulls and stretches the skin, damaging the elastic fibers deep beneath the skin’s surface. Girls may notice marks appearing on their hips, breasts, thighs and abdomen during these growth spurts.
Pregnancy also makes one more susceptible to these marks. To accommodate a growing baby, elastic fibers beneath the surface of the skin can break down as the mother’s tummy enlarges. Dark scars may appear on hips, breasts, belly button, abdomen, back, and even on the buttocks during or after a pregnancy. Continue reading “Eradicate Your Stretch Marks for Good!”
Ever since I was a young child I’ve loved being in the sun. I loved the outdoors so much that often I would go out skiing, windsurfing and handgliding. Over the years, these activities took their toll on my skin. My face, neck and hands especially became extremely dehydrated from the sun and the wind and looked aged and wrinkled. I wish now that I had taken care of my skin the way I should have, but instead I bought the latest, most popular store brands at the drugstore that never gave me the protection and beauty that they claimed. I had distinct crow’s-feet and other creases and lines around my nose and my lips which these companies had promised to erase.
Around about that time, I asked a good friend of mine with absolutely gorgeous skin for advice. She recommended giving me a facial massage using a botanically based natural skin care cream. After the facial my skin glowed and felt totally rejuvenated. I was amazed at the difference in my skin’s appearance. I started using natural moisturizing and conditioning products faithfully and for the first time I was amazed at the difference in my skin. I started a regular skin care routine using only natural beauty products.
Now, after I garden or go camping or to any areas that are extra dirty, I use a deep pore cleanser and a natural fruit based exfoliant to remove dead skin and detoxify any oily pores. Then I moisturize with a natural plant collagen anti-aging cream. Continue reading “Give your wrinkled skin a gorgeous new look!”
Natural breast enhancement creams not only give you bigger, more beautiful breasts but they also help to alleviate hormonal imbalances so you can feel and look your best every day.
Natural herbal and aromatherapy based breast enhancement creams are available and easy to use. They are becoming very popular because women are becoming increasingly aware of the health risks involved with surgical implants. Plastic surgeons are continuing to misrepresent their products by claiming they contain only ‘water’ and ‘natural’ products and that they are ‘safe’.

Standing for long periods is hard on leg veins. It tends to cause poor circulation and can produce swelling and aching in the legs unless you are doing some activities or movements while your are standing. It is necessary to take some precautions when you are on your feet a lot because when you are standing for a long time, the reduced blood flow sets up the perfect conditions for varicose veins and spider veins. The deep veins inside your lower legs are encased by your calf muscles and connective tissues. These deeper veins need to be strong and contracting efficiently to pump the blood back up to the heart. If your calf muscles are weak, your circulation will be weak. That is the reason it is so important to practice a few simple forms of exercise on a regular basis to strengthen your calf muscles and increase blood flow.

Varicose veins is a condition that can be painful mentally as well as physically. Those enlarged, dark blue or purple twisted veins on the legs can become large, bulging veins if not cared for.
Did you know that varicose veins appear between the ages of 30 and 70 and affect 1 out of every 2 people age 50 and older? They usually get progressively worse if nothing is done to relieve them. Spider veins are blue or grey thread-like streaks that appear closer to the surface of the skin than varicose but have the same causes. They can have a web-like appearance or look like the branches of a tree. Both varicose and spider veins can cause burning, pain, tiredness and discomfort.
If you’re fearful of what the consequences may be for your health, take heart – Calendula’s powerful healing therapy continues to be a primary choice for many varicose vein sufferers who prefer natural alternatives over invasive surgical procedures.

Hi, my name is Francine. Welcome to Venus Natural Beauty, a blog with tips about natural beauty, health and fitness and living a greener life. My husband and I have been co-owners of Venus Naturals, an online natural beauty site, for 20 years. In our world of mass production it’s nice to take the time to make (or simply appreciate) creams, lotions and herbal blends made in small batches with original, all natural formulas. As a mother and someone concerned about the harmful effects (allergies, premature aging and cancer) of cosmetic ingredients used by large manufacturers, I feel much better knowing our goal is to make it easier for women to free themselves from chemically-based, potentially damaging personal care and household products.
