How to Get Your Skin Glowing Again?
Fresh, glowing, supple skin is the window to showcasing that you’re healthy and looking your best… So, perhaps trying to hold onto, or obtaining this, is literally the ultimate holy grail of skincare as we age!! But the question remains for many of us in our 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s – how do I get it back, just like how my complexion and skin used to look in my late teens/early 20’s???
And sometimes it seems like the more we want it, the more out of reach it is... But rest assured that as long as you take good care of yourself from the inside, as well as the outside, radiant, envy-inducing and glowing skin IS within reach…. so some small changes to your daily routine and your lifestyle – you can help support your skin from the inside!
For some time now, naturopaths have been explaining that the gut is the first port of call for skincare support – again, it’s all about beauty from within. So let’s take a closer look at exactly what that means, and how it can help you get your glow on and achieve that supple, smooth skin you’re after...
Good Gut Health
Gut inflammation may appear as bloating, constipation or diarrhoea, excessive gas, nausea, and even low energy – there are many different signs and symptoms with underlying gut dysfunction as the trigger. But how does this effect my skin you ask?
Well, gut inflammation can equal skin inflammation, leading to an increased risk of acne, lumps and bumps or just generally inflamed-looking skin (hello redness) and even just slow skin healing. I know you’ll next ask how you can reduce gut inflammation, and you can from minimising inflammatory food intake such as sugar and highly-processed foods… and then assist your gut health with the likes of drinking collagen tea, more water and eating more fruit and veg. What’s also important is assisting your liver to also do it’s job which is removing toxins and excess hormones! So try increasing foods like broccoli, kale or brussels sprouts, and removing substances that put extra pressure on your liver such as alcohol, coffee, pesticides and synthetic body care products.
Also, focus on good bacteria for gut-health such as yoghurt, kimchi and leeks, onions and garlic which help balance the gut microbiome.
Lastly, ensure that you’re having enough fibre to assist your bowels and clear out toxins, which is where more fresh fruit and veg can assist as well as including a diet of wholegrains and legumes!!!
Collagen Skin Support
And lastly – don’t forget to support your collagen intake to support your body function from within and in turn improve your skin’s appearance! Try drinking collagen infused organic teas to assist your natural collagen levels, as collagen acts as the glue in your body as the major structural protein of and supports your body functions, joint and tendon health, gut-health as well as promoting improved skin, hair and nail growth.
So there you have it – the inner health guide to glowing skin! Remember that clear, radiant skin is the result of what we put IN to our bodies as well as what we put ON our skin, but is also a result of what is happening internally as well…… so feed your skin and your body, try drinking our Glow Junkie loose leaf tea, as it’s packed with antioxidants, polyphenols and hydrolyzed collagen peptides to support your skin and your glow, and will also help your immunity, energy and overall wellbeing.
