4 Easy Steps for Healthy, Naturally Glowing Skin
Our diet and skin health are closely related. So what are the best foods to eat for glowing skin? Firstly, what you don’t eat is just as important as what you do. Steer clear of sugar-laden treats, all things fried, anything dairy (at least from cow milk), and alcohol, which strips your skin of its moisture and natural plumpness.
Now that it’s clear what to avoid, there are certain nutrient-dense foods that can drastically improve your complexion after making them a staple in your daily diet. For a radiant glow, choose foods that are rich in vitamins that boost your circulation like zinc and iron; this includes oysters and lentils. Dark, leafy greens, carrots, red bell peppers, and sweet potatoes are also rich sources of beta-carotene. Once digested, our body converts beta carotene into vitamin A, which boosts cell production and renewal, creating a radiant complexion from the inside out.
Glowing, plump skin is a sign of adequate hydration. Make sure you drink warm water every morning- it will not only enhance your complexion, but it will gently wake up your organs and get your body ready to take on the day. You can also squeeze a little lemon for extra detoxing.
It’s also important not to drink water during meals, as it’s known to interfere with nutrient absorption by diluting your body’s digestive enzymes. Instead of missing out on key nutrients, try to drink water with an empty stomach, before eating, or 20-30 minutes after your meal is over.
Don’t Skip Out on Sleep
As a child, how many times do you remember being lectured about the importance of getting a full 8 hours of sleep? While we may be older, this fact still holds true. Skipping out on a full night of sleep can result in dull, lifeless skin. A study in the British Medical Journal also reported that people who were sleep deprived were deemed less physically attractive than those who had gotten their full 8 hours! So the next time you decide to pull a late nighter, keep in mind the inevitable impact it will make on your complexion the next day.
Choose a Targeted Skincare Product
The foods we eat, the amount of water we drink, and the quality of sleep we get all contribute to healthy skin from the inside out. When it comes to topical solutions, it’s all about what you choose to apply to your skin on a consistent daily basis.
The Recipe to a Radiance-Enhancing Serum
What’s the cure for dull skin? A targeted serum that’s expertly formulated to provide a deeper level of nutrients to restore radiance to a lifeless complexion. There are certain ingredients that are highly-prized for their ability to brighten and instantly illuminate the skin:
Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE) is an ingredient that protects the cell membrane and perks up dull skin naturally thanks to its ability to enhance the effects of important radiance-enhancing antioxidants like vitamins A, E, and C.
When our skin is depleted of radiance, we look tired, older, and out of shape. Licorice root is an ancient rescue remedy that visibly brightens and evens the complexion while diminishing the appearance of dark spots and under eye circles. Once licorice penetrates the skin, it even works to fight against UVA and UVB damage, soothe sensitivity, and tighten fine lines.
