Tips for beautiful skin

Choose a healthy diet

What you put in your mouth affects your skin. A healthy diet can help you look and feel your best. 

Eat plenty of vegetables (at least half of what's on your plate), fruits, whole grains and plant proteins, which contain fibre and antioxidants that help prevent cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. The best sources of plant proteins are quinoa, amaranth, walnuts and seeds. What's more, these options are better than meat for the health of our planet.

Dark green leafy vegetables contain chlorophyll, which helps to oxygenate the body and boost complexion. Kale, for example, is a superfood that can easily be added to smoothies. 

Add good fats to your plate like avocados, coconut oil, nuts, seeds and hemp products. They help you keep a radiant and healthy complexion.

Ultimately, don’t forget to drink a lot of water for a beautiful, healthy glow.

Tips for beautiful skin

Use chemical-free products

We are now used to read labels for food we eat, but what about the products we put on our skin, which go directly into your bloodstream? Illnesses such as cancer, allergies, immune toxicity and even obesity have been linked to the increasing use of toxic ingredients in our cosmetics, household cleaners and haircare products. When we use toxic products, our hormonal balance is compromised, which results in our skin being affected. Some examples of this are acne, PMS, depression, anxiety, fatigue, migraines etc.

The solution? Keep it simple. 

look for natural product brands that you can find in specialty stores. Fortunately, we're finding more and more natural product companies in conventional stores and pharmacies. Read labels and look for simple plant-based ingredients and vegan oils. Avoid mineral oils, petroleum derivatives and talcum powder, which clog the skin's pores.

Mostly, stay informed by referring to quality websites on the subject. The David Suzuki foundation is a great place for that.
