We would not think twice about changing our eating habits to improve those body organs we can’t see like our heart or liver and kidneys, the skin is the largest organ for all to see so why not make the same connection between diet and skin health? As a skincare specialist I find someones skin is a great indicator of their overall well being and by making a few diet changes the proof can be seen in your skin.
The skin requires exactly the same nourishment as all the other organs to maintain it’s health and vitality and what makes the skin so amazing to work with is it’s ability to absorb nutrients internally through diet and supplements being delivered through the blood stream and externally though applied products, the only human organ you can treat from the inside and out.
Each skin type has key nutrition which will aid in healing it’s specific condition, but for some general nutritional skin savers good for all skin – Brazil nuts, pomegranates, green vegetables and lots of them, avocado’s, hemp, flax and coconut oil, water cress, oily fish, lemon in hot water, sunflower seeds, and chocolate as long as it is raw.
And Organic and locally grown are going to be packed with more nutrients.
