Eating for Beauty: 15 Skin Saving Tips

Take a look at your skin, what is it telling you about your health and internal balance? The skin is the largest organ in the body that reflects all that is going on inside. Wrinkles, dry or oily skin, acne, and inflammation are all signs of poor internal health, often brought on by consuming unhealthful foods and avoiding skin-healthy nutrients. Most people turn to all sorts of cosmetics, lotions, chemicals and pills to treat skin problems. This tactic does little to address the root cause of the problem. Most skin problems can be attributed to the following: poor diet, stress, toxicity, inflammation and hormonal and gut imbalances. While cosmetics certainly have their place in the beauty routine, it is wise to take a more preventative, proactive approach as good skin comes from the inside out, not the outside in. Creating radiant, glowing, youthful-looking skin can best be accomplished by focusing on diet and lifestyle.
