We all want that glowing, healthy, vibrant skin and a big part of making this a reality in your life is being mindful of what you are putting into your body. I believe our skin speaks the imbalances that are happening in our bodies. Did you know that having acne in your forehead/nose (T-zone) this can indicate a possible toxin and a sluggish liver. Breakouts on your cheeks can indicate allergies. And lastly, breakouts on your chin, chest, and back can indicate toxicity in your colon. It is important to be in tune with how your unique body is speaking to you. It can’t tell you in words what it needs so it speaks in symptoms. If you listen to these symptoms and give your body what it needs it will start to thrive in a whole new way.

So lets talk about these ingredients and how each one will support that beautiful skin of yours.

Pomegranates- (1) are rich in vitamin C, a nutrient quite important for skin health. They are also packed with antioxidants like proanthocyanidins and flavonoids that work great for the skin by delaying the signs of aging (like wrinkles). It also has been known for its anti-aging effects.

Carrots – (2Aside from keeping your eyes healthy, carrots can also contribute to a healthy complexion. This is because vitamin A helps repair skin tissue and protects against the sun’s harsh rays.Carrots are also high in beta-carotene in addition to vitamin A, and also contains nutritious minerals and antioxidants.

Raspberries– (3) Raspberries have 40% more antioxidant content than blueberries and strawberries. These antioxidants work great for your skin. They, first of all, prevent the damaging effects of the sun. Which also means they prevent redness if your skin is sensitive. The presence of vitamin C in raspberries makes them an ideal food to prevent skin cancer. 

Blood Oranges- (4) Blood oranges are also superstars because of their high content of fruit acid. If you haven’t already been acquainted with fruit acids, now is a good time to get to know each other. Fruit acids are your friend. Blood oranges contain citric acid, a member of the alpha hydroxyl acid family. These acids are potent exfoliators: they penetrate skin and dissolve the dead skin cells that sit on your skin’s uppermost surface.

Water- (5) Your skin has a natural barrier that retains moisture, and if this barrier’s functions are disrupted, your skin may become dry and sensitive. When you neglect hydration, your skin can’t perform at its best, leading to premature aging and dry, sensitive skin. Another big benefit to drinking water is its ability to flush your system of toxins. This flushin keeps your skin clean, pushing out bacteria and reducing the risk of acne and other skin problems.

Isn’t it amazing how simple ingredients from mother earth are so powerful at assisting our bodies to thrive in a whole new way?? The more we get back to eating more whole clean ingredients the better our body will thrive.
