Acne, dry skin, large pores, and even Keratosis Pilaris, are rooted in a poor, nutrient deficient diet.
Diets heavily based on processed foods often have massive amounts of sugar, gluten, dairy, corn, and soy. These foods have been found to promote inflammation, disrupt your blood sugar, and increase your insulin production, which then increases your sebum production that results in breakouts.
Additionally, processed foods lack the essential vitamins and minerals that your body needs to function optimally. Not having these essential nutrients is a form of stress that your body has to manage.
With just a few tweaks you can transition to a real foods diet that’s naturally rich in vitamins and minerals and anti-inflammatory foods, breaking free from breakouts.
The health of your gut; i.e., your gastrointestinal tract, is at the core of your health. Acne, dry and sensitive skin, dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea and other skin allergies are signs that the health of your GI tract is compromised.
A healthy GI tract has an abundance of good bacteria and is a critical player in your body’s ability to absorb nutrients from food while protecting it from harmful organisms and pathogens.
Too much bad bacteria sets the stage for Leaky Gut Syndrome, disrupts the delicate balance of your hormones and causes a host of immune and detoxification challenges including chronic skin problems.
Focusing on repairing the health of your GI tract is a critical aspect in treating skin conditions.
Hormones are the communication network in your body. They work together to regulate so many of your bodily functions including metabolism, sex drive, appetite, moods, your ability to get a good night’s sleep, stress and more.
When one hormone is out of balance, it causes a domino effect causing other hormones to be out of balance. Certain hormones are significant players in skin health, and when they are out of balance, it can result in acne, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, rosacea, inflammation, redness and more.
Restore balance to your hormones by eating an anti-inflammatory diet, repairing the health of your gut, and managing the sources of your stress.
Skin issues like dry, loose, thin skin, uneven skin tones, wrinkles and even more severe conditions like rashes, hives, breakouts, and eczema are rooted in toxins exposure. You’re exposed to toxins daily through food, water, air, cleaning products, but also through harmful ingredients in your personal care and beauty products.
These toxins disrupt your hormonal function, gut health and ultimately your skin health.
The best way to address toxin exposure is through avoidance - eating organic foods free of herbicides and pesticides, drinking filtered water and by using safer products, free of harmful ingredients.
