End the skin breakouts is the wish of everyone. It is the most common question nowadays that how we can keep our skin glowing and healthy. The external appearance reflects the inside happening. This is why we need to protect our skin from breakouts.
If your body is tired, stressed and in nutrient lacking, then it reflects the dryness and other skin conditions. Here are some amazing tips for getting the fresh and glowing skin.
Love good fats
Enjoy foods that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids such as salmon, avocado, coconut oil, nuts (especially walnuts) and seeds (such as chia seeds and flaxseeds). I also recommend taking a good-quality fish oil supplement every day.
Look after your gut
Taking care of your gut health is so important for maintaining healthy skin. A daily prebiotic is a great start, as is drinking water with a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and eating probiotic-rich foods.
Eat a whole food diet
For skin health, focus on enjoying good fats, proteins, greens and healthy grains at each meal. Limit your intake of processed, packaged and pre-prepared foods.
There are several important minerals that promote cellular renewal and help to support other bodily processed. Minerals such as selenium, magnesium, zinc and iodine are great beauty boosters.
I’m sure you’ve heard this before, but water intake is crucial for glowing skin. Drinking two litres of water each day helps to flush the body and nourish your cells.
Take care of your liver
This aids your hormonal health, which in turn helps your skin. Our hormones are processed through the liver so when it’s overloaded, we can experience imbalanced hormones. I have a seasonal cleanse available in the health App, which helps to support the liver and other organs.
Eat your greens
Leafy greens and green veggies are a beauty powerhouse. They’re rich in vitamin E, which helps to fight free radicals and other toxins. At lunch and dinner, try filling half of your plate with greens, ¼ complex carbohydrates, ¼ protein and a portion of healthy fats.
Take care of your stress levels
If you’re not rested on the inside, it’s going to show on the outside. Ensure you get eight hours of sleep, manage your stress, exercise moderately, set technology boundaries and practise deep belly breathing.
Beat those blemishes
My secret weapon is using a bit of apple cider vinegar dabbed onto cotton wool. Leave it on overnight and you’ll see that blemishes are drastically reduced.
Limit inflammatory foods
When it comes to our diet, I’ve found there are three main culprits that contribute to problematic skin: gluten, sugar and dairy. I recommend trialling a two-week elimination and seeing whether your skin improves during that time. I also recommend limiting your intake of caffeine to one coffee a day and reducing alcohol to two glasses on the weekend.
