Feed the Skin: Inner health equals outer beauty.

You are what you eat. Beauty begins in the belly.

The skin is a mirror of the internal health of your body. If you’re experiencing chaotic skin or breakouts, it can be a sign that something internally just isn’t quite right. Problems like congestion can be caused by things like blood sugar imbalances, inflammation, poor digestion, hormones, and stress — all of which can be linked to the food you eat.

Your skin loves plenty of leafy greens that are rich in vitamins and minerals, brightly coloured fruits are rich in free-radical fighting antioxidants, extra virgin olive oil and oily fish for healthy fats and anti-inflammatory omega-3 essential fatty acids as well as fibre-rich foods like nuts and legumes and probiotics from yoghurt or fermented vegetables for good gut health. I mean, that shouldn’t be too hard right?! The pace of modern living, food quality and stress are the demise of our overall wellbeing which can dramatically affect the skin. It’s ok, please don’t move to a commune and grow everything yourself, a few small changes, paired with consistency can make for big results.

To get straight to the hit list - your skin doesn’t like processed foods, dairy and refined sugars. They’re all inflammation-causing foods. So while they may taste good, these choices are often nutrient-poor, processed, and contain excess salt, preservatives, artificial sweeteners, flavours and other additives.
If you suffer from red, sensitive, or inflamed skin, or skin conditions like rosacea, eczema, dermatitis or acne, it's important to avoid foods that fuel this inflammation. Things like coffee, caffeine (energy drinks), alcohol, spicy foods, chocolate, peanuts, strawberries, and oranges all have a heating effect within the skin, causing further inflammation.

For those suffering from acne, congestion, or breakouts; there are foods that should be avoided as these can be a real trigger. If you are prone to breakouts, these foods will thicken the sebum your skin is producing, causing it to congest in your skin. This will result in further breakouts, bumps, and congestion. Common congesting foods are full-fat dairy products, cheese, chocolate, ice cream, fatty meats, fried foods, protein powders and drinks and peanuts.
While everyone’s tolerance will vary, the fast-track to a dreamy complexion is to cut these out completely for 4-6 weeks. Your skin should clear up relatively fast but will show immediately once you reintroduce that food again.

At The Facialist, we absolutely believe in a bi-directional approach to beauty and strongly suggest supporting your topical skin routine with ingestible supplements to counterbalance stress and poor diet choices or to further support your body in achieving an outer glow from within.
