Do you suffer from a skin problem? Acne, zits, dry skin or eczema … we all get some irritation from time to time. Luckily, there are many natural ways we can promote healthy skin cells.
Avoid Inflammatory Saturated Fats: Replace red meat and cheese with foods that contain saturated fats to help clear up your skin. These include almonds, avocados and peanut butter. As a guide, follow Hopewood’s balanced and vegetarian approach to get your skin looking great.
Increase your intake of fruits and vegetables: This approach will increases your vitamin C, vitamin E, bioflavonoids, iron and carotenoids, which all help promote glowing, eczema-free skin!
Drink plenty of water: Drinking water helps your body to detoxify and eliminate unwanted waste. The skin is the largest organ in the body, and as such requires a lot of water to keep it glowing. You should aim for at least two litres of water a day to stay well hydrated!
Exercise: Getting enough exercise helps to sweat out any toxins and unwanted acids. It also improves the circulation, giving you a healthy glow.
Keep calm and carry on: Stress is one of the worst things for your skin. Stress causes inflammation and can cause acne breakouts. When your feel under the pump, remember to take a deep breath and take some time out. A slow yoga or meditation practice twice a week can help you stay calm and in control.
