All You Need To Do To Have Glowing Skin
By Lindsay Sibson
Want to love the skin you’re in and create a natural glow? You won’t even need to head to the beauty department to invest in the new expensive moisturizer! It all starts with nurturing your skin from the inside out.
Your skin in your largest organ and renews itself every 28 days. How amazing is that! Therefore, if you suffer from any skin conditions such as rashes, dry skin, or acne, making shifts in your food choices can give the appearance of your skin a healthy boost!
Here are three steps to get your glow started:
1. Feed Your Skin Well – Just like your body reacts and functions according to what you eat, your skin does as well. Not only does processed “junk” food lead to weight gain and feeling lethargic, it can also wreak havoc on your complexion.
The top three culprits for causing breakouts are:
Try cutting these three elements out of your diet for a two week trial period and you may just start noticing your skin issues completely clearing up! Especially if your digestive system is sensitive to gluten, in which case your body reacts by releasing histamine to fight off the “invader” (gluten). This leads to inflammation both in your body and on your skin in the form of acne and other disturbances.
2. Get Good Fats – Essential fatty acids (EFA’s) aka “good fat,” help keep your skin hydrated and “plump” (which in turn minimizes wrinkles). Since your body does not naturally make these fats, it is important that you get them in your diet by eating the right things like coconut oil, salmon, flax seeds, eggs and sardines. If you skin is dry, irritated, inflamed, or acne prone, it may be a sign that you aren’t getting enough EFA’s!
3. Proper Digestion And Gut Health Is KEY – When it comes to having glowing skin and feeling great, it is very important that you are caring for your digestive system. Make sure to stay properly hydrated throughout the day! Keep a water bottle with you at all times to serve as a reminder to constantly be drinking water. In addition, choose probiotic rich foods that create optimal gut health such as:
Fitlife.tv recently created their very own probiotic, complete with 10 strains of beneficial bacteria and 50 billion CFU’s to populate your gut!
Your skin acts as a reflection of what is going on inside your body. Therefore, when you choose a healthy and nourishing diet with the foods mentioned above, one of the amazing side effects is beautiful, glowing skin!
Keep in mind that all lifestyle factors play a role in your health so do your best and start where you’re at. As with any improvements, the most important thing you can do is to get started somewhere. Your health is worth it.
