Tips for Healthy Skin

The skin is the largest organ of your body, it has a big job to do and it shows the first signs of aging. Here are something’s you can do to help keep a healthy glow.
First watch what foods you eat. Our society eats more processed food than any other generation because of our increasing convenience foods. While this step has made our lives easier, it has not necessarily made our lives better. Our skin is sum and substance of what we eat and drink, and what we expose it to. Dark chocolate, eggs, maple syrup, fresh fruits, and vegetables are your skin’s best friends. Eating as many fresh fruits and vegetables as you can in as many colors as possible will reward you by making your skin younger-looking, more supple, and help to bring back a natural glow. Foods filled with chemicals do more harm than good. Try to eat more naturally this year and leave the fast food products alone.
Second is hydration. Any drink that dehydrates you should be kept to a minimum; this means anything with caffeine or alcohol. Sugar-laden drinks interfere with your hormones, sometimes causing unwanted skin conditions. Sugar-substitutes are chemicals, and while scientists know a lot about them, many naturopaths suggest that you choose natural alternatives like stevia or agave nectar. Water is the best choice to keep you hydrated. Keep a water bottle handy, you will find you drink water more often if it’s easy to grab.
Third watch your sun exposure. We love it but it does bad things to our skin. Keep your skin protected with sunscreen on a regular basis to avoid sun spots and wrinkles.
Last find a skin care regimen that fits your lifestyle. It is important to keep you skin clean, exfoliated, and moisturized.
Try all these things for 2 weeks and see the difference!
