Youth and beauty secrets aren’t really secrets at all. You can have beautiful skin by doing a few simple time-tested beautiful skin care practices each day when you have time.
- Drink plenty of pure water (alkaline water may be best)
- Walk 20 minutes per day!
- Eat real food (not processed, boxed or prepared foods)
- Consider using digestive supplements (digestion and skin health are related)
Some doctors have noted the close relationship between digestive health and skin health. For instance, eczema can be an essential fatty acid (fish oi, flax oil) deficiency. If your digestive system isn’t properly absorbing your food or supplements, it’s likely your skin isn’t as vibrant and youthful looking as it could be.
If you are chronically dehydrated, the natural toxins in your digestive tract are unable to move along and out of your body on time. If you are constipated due to dehydration, these toxins can leach back into your body from your bowel.
If you aren’t active, bowel elimination is compromised because muscle action helps move waste products out of the bowel and out of you. Exercise also helps keep your skin toned and firm.
Lymphatic health is important for youthful beautiful skin. Walking for exercise or bouncing for 20 minutes on a mini trampoline will help get your lymphatic system moving. The lymph nodes help clean debris out of your blood. Exercise helps the lymph nodes clean themselves out.
It’s much more important to mind the basics of health and beauty than to use creams, lotions. Consider making these changes before doing dermabrasion or skin resurfacing.
Consider a doing a 90 day challenge where you drink one gallon of pure water a day, walk for at least 20 minutes each day and eat foods as close to their natural form as possible.
You may feel so much better overall that you’ll want to continue this simple health plan!
If your digestion doesn’t improve and you’re still constipated, you may need digestive aids such as Betaine Pepsin HCL or pancreatic enzymes to help break down your food for better assimilation.
Some people are allergic to gluten and casein, the proteins found mostly in wheat and dairy products. Once these are taken out of the diet, digestion and bowel transit time usually improve. There are many grains that contain gluten, so do your research if you suspect a food sensitivity. Always check with your doctor for direction with supplementation, food allergy assessment and exercise options that are best for you.
After you’ve done your 90 day challenge, ask your friends if they’ve noticed any differences in you and your appearance. It’s possible you’ll get comments on how good you look before your 90 days are up!
