Have you ever applied all sorts of expensive creams or
cleansers and wondered why your skin continued to look
That's because healthy skin comes from the inside out.
Remember, your skin is an organ, and like all organs, it
benefits from a healthful, toxin-free diet.
Here are 8 steps you can take toward a skin-cleansing diet.
1. Stay hydrated
You have probably heard about the importance of drinking
water to stay healthy and cleanse the system, and that
includes your skin.
Make sure you are drinking plenty of water, at least six
8oz. glasses a day. Add a squeeze of lemon juice to cleanse
your liver - in traditional Chinese medicine, poor skin
indicates an unhealthy liver.
2. Bring on the fats
For your skin to remain plump and supple, rubbing on
moisturizers can help, but taking healthy fats into your
system will have a deeper, healthier effect on your skin.
Flax, olive and fish oils, as well as expeller-pressed
cooking oils like safflower or canola, should be
incorporated into the diet.
Eat fatty, cold-water fish such as salmon at least once a
week, but make sure it is from a reputable source so that
you are not adding to your body's toxic overload by eating
fish that have lived in toxic waters.
3. Fresh fruits and vegetables
In addition to hydrating the body, fresh veggies and fruits
provide vital skin-healthy nutrients, such as vitamins A, C
and E and toxin-absorbing fiber.
Many vegetables, such as tomatoes, contain antioxidants.
Lightly steamed or raw are the ideal ways to consume these
4. Nuts and seeds
These little gems include important blood-building nutrients
like iron, and healthy circulation and blood are key to good
Nuts and seeds also contain healthy fats, which, as noted
above, keep the skin smooth and glowing.
5. Go organic
If you have not already, switch to organic foods. Your body
needs to be as free from toxins as possible for your skin to
be healthy, and organic food is not contaminated with
synthetic herbicides, pesticides, or fertilizers.
These substances can also cause hormonal imbalances, which
are strongly implicated in acne and other skin problems.
This goes for produce as well as meats and dairy products.
Speaking of dairy products...
6. Limit dairy products
Except for plain yogurt, you should sharply limit your dairy
intake for healthier skin. Our modern dairy products are
likely to contain hormones or antibiotics, and they contain
animal fat which does not promote healthy skin.
7. Limit junk and fast foods
These "foods" are full of artificial flavors, colors,
preservatives, and unhealthy fats. Cleanse your skin from
the inside by eating whole, fresh foods instead.
8. Follow all the rules
Strictly following the 7 steps above for a best results.
