One of my favourite testimonies I enjoy hearing from my clients is that people are complimenting them on their skin. I'm always on the look out for the latest skincare products and food recipes to help us feel good starting from within. I love recommending products but I'm a big believer in how you treat your mental health, will affect your physical. Don't forget to take care of the person inside of you too. Every morning I wake up I take a few minutes to say my daily affirmations and what I'm grateful for.
There are so many supplements and foods that can help with achieving healthy, glowing skin - and I'm not an expert in any way - but here are some of the things I do everyday to help give my skin all the nutrients it needs to look and feel healthy.
1. Hydration: It's so important to know what's going on inside and I am a firm believer that all your bodily systems are interconnected. Making sure you are drinking enough water isn't going to solve all of your dryness or rough texture problems, but it does play a huge factor. Things like greasy fast foods, vegetable oils, and alcohol can all dehydrate you so its important to keep track of how much you consume. I drink about 8-10 glasses of water each day and I try to have a cup of bone broth once a day during the winter months (there are so many amazing health benefits bone broth provides).
2. Supplements: There are so many vitamins and minerals out there on the market that it can get a bit overwhelming choosing what's right for you. If you don't know where to start, I would advise you go see your doctor or a naturopath doctor to help you discover what your body needs. I also like to take powder supplements to put into my smoothies. Here are a few of what I take everyday but I do advise to do some research before you take anything.
Omega / Vitamin D / Zinc /Curcumin / B12 / Collagen / Probiotics
3. Orange Fruits & Veggies: Oranges, clementines, carrots, butternut squash, papaya, etc., the list goes on! These foods are known for their high content of vitamin C. They also contain phytonutrients which have health benefits to help with our eyes, skin, and hair!
4. Fish: Yes, taking your omega vitamins is great but it's also important to consume foods which have healthy fats and that are high in omega 3 fatty acids. They are known to help your body and brain functions. I try to incorporate fish at least 2-3 times a week into my meals.
