Beauty tips for a healthy skin

Outer beauty is by definition a side effect of inner health and beauty. When you take care of your physical, emotional and spiritual well-being, your body, face and skin already reap the benefits. Here is what you can do to ensure a radiant skin quality:

Nutrition: Make sure your daily meals are reach in fiber. Fiber plays a vital role in a healthy diet and recent research suggests the inclusion of 20 grams of fiber or more per day. The best sources of fiber are whole grain foods, fresh fruits and vegetables, legumes and nuts. Amongst other, fiber alleviates constipation and contributes to a better intestinal function, leaving the skin pure of toxins and metabolic waste. Organic fruits and vegetables are also very rich in antioxidants that act as natural anti-aging factor. Replacing fruit juices with whole fruits and white rice, bread, and pasta with brown rice and whole grain products, is a vital step towards fiver intake. Snack on raw vegetables instead of chips, crackers, or chocolate bars will also contribute significantly to a better skin quality.

Exercise: Getting outside to move in the fresh sun and air, increases the flow of oxygen and blood to the cells, transferring valuable nutrients to the hair and skin. Exercise also stimulates the production of endorphins, the so called hormones of happiness and reduces the stress related hormones of adrenaline and norepinephrine that is the root cause of many skin related diseases.

Sleep: Sleep plays a critical role in our natural immunity and vitality. Our circadian rhythm has evolved over many years to align our physiology with your environment. It operates under the assumption that we rest and sleep at night and become active during the day. Melatonin is a pineal hormone closely related to restful sleep, as its production takes place in our brain only between 22.00-01.00 am at night. Melatonin is a very potent antioxidant that boosts our immunity and over health, including skin health. Melatonin also helps suppress harmful free radicals, the root cause of aging. On the other hand, sleep deprivation has proven to lead to chronic inflammation and affects our biology deeply to a cellular level.

Daily skin routine: Cleansing, moisturising and actively revitalizing your skin on a daily basis, provides it with all the nutrients it needs to be healthy and vital. Natural anti-ageing ingredients like essential oils and floral waters, stimulate cell renewal to help our skin remain fresh and good looking for longer.
