Hello, and welcome back to the conclusion of this four-part blog series. In our previous posts, we have looked at a number of ways you can enhance the health of your skin by following some simple daily health and skincare tips. We suggest following the links to read parts one, two, and three in whichever order you please. In a nutshell, by feeding your body the nutrients it needs to support healthy cell and collagen production, treating your body well by giving it plenty of rest, hydration, and exercise, and eliminating toxins and free radicals, your skin will look and feel much healthier and more youthful.
At InnerBeauty Med Spa in Minnetonka, we offer specialized treatments designed to help you look and feel incredible, and by practicing healthy habits, you will only enhance the results of our health and beauty treatments. Here are three more beauty tips for you to consider, and then, call us today if you have questions about our med spa treatments or to book your visit.
Beta-Carotene For Betta Skin
Beta-carotene is a powerful nutrient found in plants, which when converted to vitamin A in the body, supports healthy cell and collagen production. This nutrient is essential for fighting the signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines on your face and body. As we age, collagen levels naturally decrease, resulting in lowered elasticity and thinner, duller skin. Eating beta-carotene-rich foods like sweet potatoes, carrots, and spinach supports healthy, supple skin while also providing a natural sunblock to prevent sun damage.
Ditch the Dairy
Dairy is good for many reasons, one them being that it is an excellent source of calcium. It supports strong bones and teeth, but it can also aggravate acne-prone skin and other inflammatory skin problems. As we mentioned last time, probiotics in the gut maintain a healthy digestive system, which can be interrupted by consuming dairy products like milk, cream, yogurt, and cheese. There are many dairy-free alternatives which can provide you with the vitamins and nutrients you need that won’t irritate the skin. Try replacing dairy-based products with plant-based products like coconuts, almonds, soy, rice, and hemp, all of which offer healthy, nutrient-rich substitutes for milk, yogurt, and other dairy products.
Red Foods for Radiant Skin
Eating a diet rich in red foods can support healthy, clear skin. For instance, strawberries and red peppers are full of vitamin C, which supports soft, smooth skin, while beta-carotene-packed foods like sweet potatoes aid in a fresh complexion. Tomatoes are packed with vitamin C, lutein, and lycopene, all of which eliminate free radicals that contribute to skin aging, wrinkles, and blemishes. So load your green leafy salad full of juicy red tomatoes and red peppers, and have a few strawberries for dessert. Your skin will thank you!
