Many people consider skin care to be related to cosmetic products and lotions that we use externally on our skin, but the food we eat can also impact our skin and how and it looks and feels!
healthy fat (LCHF) dietOur skin is the largest organ of our body and if you’re getting constant rashes, redness, dryness, blemishes and pimples, that’s generally because there is something not quite right on the inside (inflammatory responses or detoxification processes). These skin issues may just be a symptom and not the actual problem.
This is not to say that all skin issues are caused and solved by diet, but many people notice dramatic skin improvements when they improve their diet.
A low carbohydrate, healthy fat (LCHF) diet reduces the intake of skin irritating toxins and pro-inflammatory foods and increases skin loving and healing foods.
An LCHF diet focuses on consuming nutrient dense foods with lots of antioxidant, vitamin and mineral rich foods such as vegetables and fruits, healthy natural fats and essential protein from good quality, pasture fed meat and eggs, as well as drinking plenty of fresh water - all of which help to support healthy skin, hair and nails. By changing your diet, you may fix the problem that's causing the symptoms.
If you want healthy, clear and radiant skin, perhaps it's time to start looking at your diet... as the saying goes "you are what you eat". If you're filling the inside of your body with lots of processed foods full of sugars and additives, you can't expect your skin to be glowing on the outside. There is only so much that expensive skin care products and make-up can achieve.
