If you’ve ever had problematic skin, whether it be sensitive skin, eczema or acne or something else, you know the struggle. I’ve suffered with it for sure, and have done lots of trial and error and researched about the best ways to get healthy, glowing skin and I want to share those tips with you today 🥑🥑🥑✨
Healthy, Glowing Skin Tips
If you haven’t already stumbled upon ‘probiotics’, then this can for sure do wonders for you skin and your overall health. Probiotics are good bacteria. Nowadays with processed food, junk food, fast food, sugar etc. lots of us have an overgrowth of bad bacteria in our gut. In order to be healthy and thriving, you need more of the good bacteria. These you can get through fermented foods (sauerkraut, kimchi, kombucha, yoghurt, etc.), or you can also take a probiotic supplement.
Eat More Vegetables
Food is medicine. Eat a variety of vegetables, and fruits, and eat plenty of them. Veggies in different colours contain different vitamins and nutrients, and all of these different vitamins and nutrients improves different functions in the body – so eat the rainbow!
If you find it hard to get enough vegetables in during the day, you can also try to add a smoothie to your daily diet. Fx a green one or an antioxidant-rich one!
Healthy fats can do wonders for your skin health. Healthy fats are essential for the health of our cells, and can really ‘smoothen’ the skin from within.
Healthy fats are from sources such as avocados, nuts, seeds, olive oil, coconut oil.
Reduce Intake of Sugar & Processed Foods
As we talked about probiotic, we already covered this part a bit. But eating too much sugar and processed foods will create an overgrowth of the bad bacteria in our gut, this can lead to inflammation in the body, which can not only lead to bad skin and breakouts, but also to more severe issues such as joint pains and the development of several diseases. So by all means, try not to indulge in these things too much, but rather go for a whole food diet.
Move Your Body
Moving your body not only releases endorphins, which is a ‘happy hormone’ that makes you feel good, it can also make you sweat which helps to get rid of toxins from the body, and it moves your lymphatic system, which also helps to get rid of toxins and creates a better blood flow and circulation, which can lead to more vibrant & healthy looking skin.
Enjoy & Love Life
Last, but definitely not least, one of the best things you can do for your health and the health of your skin is to enjoy and love life, and do more of what makes you happy! Smiling, laughing, hugging, having fun, following your passions etc. it all brings a healthy glow to your skin.
