Back to Basics| Tips for Better Skin From Within

If you suffer with skin issues, whether it be, dry skin, brown spots, puffiness, or acne know that it can affect more than your appearance. We can put together a list of things you can do at home to tame your skin from the inside-out. It can take an emotional toll as well.

Food Culprits

When your immune system is triggered  by the food you eat the result in a variety of symptoms including pain, redness, gut issues and skin problems. Take a second to look at your diet. You want to try and find then eliminate food intolerances. The most common are:

  • Gluten
  • Dairy
  • Soy
  • Eggs
  • Grains

Elimination-provocation can let you know if you do in fact have any of  the above intolerances.  Some people benefit from food allergy testing.

Time to Tame Your Sweet Tooth

If you are suffering from inflamed skin, you can follow an anti- inflammatory diet. “Inflammed” meaning any skin condition that includes: discomfort, itchiness or redness has some component of inflammation.  This means trying to avoid things like:

  • Sweets
  • Soda
  • Any and all Fast Food
  • Processed Foods

Try replacing these things with a cleaner, whole foods approach. Pick foods that are packed with anti-oxidants and vitamins. Look for foods rich in color like, blueberries, butternut squash or broccoli. Those leafy-greens or those anti-oxidant packed blueberries are actually feeding your skin the nutrients it craves and needs.

In addition, inflamed skin can be caused by either a yeast or bacteria overgrowth. If you are suffering from psoriasis, eczema, acne or rosacea, look at coming into our office to see if you are suffering from a leaky gut.

  •  Any caffeinated drinks
