Thank you for joining us for part three of our blog series. We have been looking at ways to introduce healthy habits into your daily routine to transform the texture and appearance of your skin from the inside out. By eating a balanced diet, getting plenty of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals, and staying hydrated — among other things — you can enjoy soft, supple, glowing skin every day. Let’s briefly revisit some of the tips we mentioned in our recent posts, but be sure to read parts one and two to learn even more ways to get healthy, radiant skin.

  • Eat almonds
  • Stay hydrated
  • Avoid added and refined sugars
  • Limit dehydrating beverages
  • Get deep, restful sleep
  • Exercise regularly
  • Quit smoking

Implementing these simple solutions for improving your skin, hair, and overall health and wellness is as easy as 1-2-3, plus, you’ll feel and look amazing. Furthermore, practicing these and other healthy habits will only enhance the beauty treatments you receive with us at InnerBeauty Med Spa in Minnetonka! Here are three more ways you can improve the health of your skin from the inside out.   

Get Your Fill of Probiotics

Probiotics are a helpful bacteria in your GI tract that help maintain a healthy digestive system. Probiotics can also improve your skin, keeping it free of blemishes, outbreaks, and dryness. Eating processed foods, carbs, and refined sugars can reduce your body’s natural levels of probiotics. Therefore, adding more of this beneficial bacteria to your diet can encourage not only healthy skin, but also strong, shiny hair and nails. Try adding probiotic-rich fermented foods to your diet, such as apple cider vinegar, miso soup, and sauerkraut. Yogurt is one of the most common probiotics, but keep in mind that dairy can aggravate skin problems. Opt instead for a coconut milk- or almond milk-based yogurt.

Get Plenty of Green Foods

Your skin needs to be replenished with vitamins and nutrients such as vitamins A, B, and C, zinc, lutein, and others, which support collagen production while fighting skin irritations like dryness, redness, rashes, and a reduction in skin tone and pigmentation. Verdant foods like spinach, kale, and other leafy greens, green tea, matcha green tea powder, cucumbers, avocados, and broccoli are just some of the green foods that support healthy skin. Consuming these on a regular basis, and even using them as topical skincare solutions, can alleviate inflammation that contributes to acne, puffy eyes, and blemishes. What’s more, getting a healthy fill of green foods provides you with a massive supply of antioxidants, which also combat inflammation, support cell and collagen production, and eliminate free radicals that cause premature aging, wrinkles, and fine lines.   

Add Omega-3s To Your Diet

Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for a strong health and beauty regimen. Eating plenty of omega-3s found in unprocessed foods like fish oil, wild fish, chia seeds, and flax seeds can improve your skin by reducing acne, swelling, redness, rosacea, and dry, itchy skin. Additionally, omega-3s can also strengthen your nails and moisturize your scalp. Add a handful of nuts and seeds to your breakfast and lunches and eat grilled fish. You can also find omega-3s in natural supplements like fish oil capsules if you don’t have a taste for fish.

Book a Skincare Treatment

Along with practicing these healthy habits, scheduling regular skincare treatments can help you achieve beautiful, youthful skin that looks and feels amazing.
