Healthy Skin Care Nutrition
We all know that healthy skin care and nutrition go together but the exact why’s and how come’s are fuzzy.
Since we are at the start of a fresh new year, it’s a fantastic time to set a few new habits to great skin from the inside out.
I came across this article that I thought was really interesting. It has good info on some nutritional points that may not be exactly common knowledge, but I also like the information on how some of the organs in your body helps to maintain and build nice skin – and how we can support those organs.
GOING GREEN FOR HEALTHY SKIN
I’ve noticed myself since making my diet a bigger priority that my skin has improved. My biggest discovery has been green smoothies.
I went on a raw/green smoothie challenge for a week once when my daughter was away. When she came back she said my skin looked like water. I didn’t even ask!. That sold me – my largest skin care problems are large pores and a ruddy complexion.
These days I find that if my skin is starting to look ‘muddy’ I get back on my green smoothie routine (at least one good one a day) and within days I see an improvement.
REAL FOOD FOR HEALTHY SKIN
My current challenge is to spend more time in the kitchen making ‘real food’ and to cut the crap out of the cupboards (again). (if you want more info on that or if you’d like to get to know me better, you can check out my ‘at home’ blog and my health journey blog where I will have more indepth info about these things – My Home Blog and Healthy Habits Blog.
DR. MERCOLA ON HEALTHY SKIN CARE NUTRITION
Here’s the link to the article if you’d like to have a look. You need to scroll down a bit to get Dr. Mercola’s comments and the additional information.
While there are plenty of things that you can do to on the outside, getting in the habit to care for your skin and to keep it healthy from the inside is always a good idea – and a great place to start when brainstorming your next natural skin care creation.
