There’s no question that using high quality, natural skin care is only half of the solution to complexion concerns. The other half is what feeds your skin from the inside, which is, of course, your diet!
Every single thing you put in your mouth, chew up and swallow will make its way through your body and eventually, out onto your skin. That mug of herbal tea you drink every afternoon? You can thank it for playing a part in your dewey skin. The daily candy bar you snack on after lunch? Yup, that'll present on your face too, and probably not in the way you want.
And while there's no standard set of rules that will work for everyone, a good rule of thumb is to focus the majority of your diet on whole, nutrient-dense foods aka superfoods. Things like leafy greens, healthy fats and organic protein will benefit your complexion today and for the rest of your life. (Your insides will benefit too!)
But as much as we focus on what we should be eating for great skin, we sometimes overlook the things that aren't so great for us. If you want healthy, youthful skin, be good to your body and avoid these inflammatory foods.
