Do you have a skin concern?

Did you know your skin is a great indicator of your internal health? If you eat a diet high in processed foods, alcohol, caffeine, dairy etc, your skin will reflect this and more often than not you will develop a skin condition. Skin aging is normal, however, if your diet creates inflammation internally, this will be evident as premature aging including wrinkles, lines, discolouration, broken blood vessels and edema. An imbalance of hormones is also mirrored in the skin; if you suffer with acne, your testosterone levels may be too high, if your testosterone levels are too low, you may have lax skin tone or sagging. Rosacea may also be a sign that things are not functioning well internally.

Some other causes of skin problems include:

  • Leaky gut syndrome
  • A high intake of refined foods and sugars
  • A high intake of saturated fats
  • Excess caffeine
  • Low consumption of  essential fatty acids in diet
  • Food allergies
  • Harsh and irritating cosmetics
  • Low water consumption

If you suffer with a problematic skin condition, you may need to consider some of these triggers and make some lifestyle and dietary changes.

In the coming weeks I will be sharing a case study so we can document the changes of a client with a skin problem and how we can make a difference with topical products & treatments and looking at dietary and lifestyle changes. Please share if you think this will be of help with any of your followers!

Enjoy your day. DCCx
