Nutrition Secrets for Healthy Glowing Skin

skin avo maskOur skin is a vital organ in our body, not to mention it’s the biggest. Your skincare products may be helpful, but your diet is the real link to your skin. If you have a crappy diet, it will age your skin, cause breakouts and possible rashes.

2 Main Areas That Will Age Your Skin

  1. Imbalanced Hormones: After working with an endocrinologist for over 15 years, I definitely see the correlation between your hormones and skin. Fortunately, there are lots of nutrition & lifestyle habits that you can do to balance your hormones for glowing skin.  Most people are scared of fat but adding healthy oils to your diet will help balance your hormones. I regularly add coconut oil, avocado and I supplement with fish oil.
  2. A Toxic Diet: Processed foods, chemicals and especially sugar will create breakouts and possible rashes, like Psoriasis and Excema.  Eating a diet that is filled with whole foods and lots of water will anti-age your skin.  Most people who complete my detox program see obvious skin improvement.  In fact, a few women repeated my detox before their wedding because they experienced the post-detox skin glow that we all crave.

Top 10 Foods for Glowing Skin.

  1. Berries
  2. Turmeric
  3. Oats
  4. Walnuts
  5. Avocado
  6. Broccoli
  7. Water
  8. Leafy Greens
  9. Green Tea
  10. Apple Cider Vinegar

Essential Oils are said to help the skin stay looking young. Here are some essential oils that are known to increase smoothness and promote anti-aging. These oils are extremely powerful so be sure that you read the directions and use them properly.

  1. Rose Oil
  2. Neroli Oil
  3. Jasmine Oil
  4. Ylang Ylang Oil

There are many homemade face masks that you can try out. Here’s a simple one that’s only 3 ingredients and makes your face feel like new.
