Skin Offenders Hidden in Your Diet

Skin Offenders Hidden in Your Diet

Skin Challenge: It’s no secret it begins within and starts with the

nutrients we consume on a daily basis. If you think this is all woo-woo, just
try cutting out the top offenders to skin health and replacing them with
antioxidant-rich skin “beautifiers” for two weeks and watch how radiant
you’ll become in a short amount of time!

Skin Offenders

  • SUGAR | I’m not talking about whole fruit, I’m talking about the white sugar, brown sugar, high fructose corn syrups, maltodextrin, dextrose, and brown rice syrup (all the syrups) that manufacturers add to foods. These break down precious collagen and elastin over time, so check your ingredient labels. I love monk fruit or stevia for sweetness instead.
  • DAIRY | A lot of people don’t realize they have a dairy sensitivity or
    intolerance. If you struggle with acne, you’ll definitely want to look into this
    as a potential solution. Milk naturally contains a cocktail of growth
    hormones that can influence your own and increase pore-clogging oil
    production. Great for a growing baby but less so for us adults!
  • ALCOHOL | I hate to say this one but in truth, alcohol is deeply
    dehydrating for the body and for your skin. It causes inflammation and
    creates a histamine reaction that makes your skin red and irritated. Alcohol
    is well known to leave your skin vulnerable to free radical damage and
    premature aging.

Skin Beautifiers

  • Curcumin + turmeric
  • Dark leafy greens + spirulina
  • Probiotics
  • Sea Veggies like kelp
  • Marine Collagen
  • Mushrooms
  • Citrus Fruits
  • Green tea
  • Dark chocolate
  • Berries
  • Wild salmon + fish oil
  • Almonds + walnuts

...and the list goes on! Seriously, try this experiment for yourself for two
weeks and let me know how it goes!
