Aloha! Today I stumbled across a short but informative article on healthy skin care that I’d like to share: Discovery Health Quick Tips. One important lesson I've learned over the years regarding skincare is that there is a strong relationship between your skin and your diet. I know for a fact greasy chips and microwaveable food isn't good for my skin! It’s worth noting that everyone’s body is different. Although food reactions and intolerance vary by individual, good things can happen to your skin if you eat right. Such good things include: beautiful glowing skin if you eat pumpkin seeds, arugula, and avocados regularly; and natural skin and sunburn protection if you add tomatoes, carrots, and sweet potatoes to your regular diet! Studies have found that foods containing high levels of Vitamin A and beta-carotene are excellent for skin health!
Another quick natural remedy to help clear acne, dryness, or oily skin...hydration! Your body loves water just as much, if not more, than it loves its fruits and vegetables. So I recommend you pick up your favorite water bottle, fill it with water, add some lemon slices and a few leaves of mint, and keep drinking all day - especially during the hot hot summer!
To recap, skin health is directly related to what we eat. Drink lots of water, and fill your diet with colorful fruits and vegetables for healthy, glowing skin. Want to go that extra step to ensure skin health? Give your skin nutrients not only from within, but topically by applying your favorite all-natural skin remedy. AMS Naturals’ Anahit face & body balm is perfect food for your skin, containing hand-picked herbs, roots, and wildflowers fresh from nature. A dime-size amount of Anahit is enough to sustain you all day on your journey to great skin health!
