Food For Your Skin

Your skin is not dead, it’s living!

Your skin is the largest organ of your body. What you feed your body directly relates to the health of your skin. Healthy skin is beautiful skin; the two are inseparable.

Years of research and direct communication with some of the world’s top metabolic and ageing experts has offered us a profound understanding of the relationship food has to your skin, your weight, your ageing and of course, what ties it all together, your hormones.

In this section we will outline 5 of the Top Foods that are great for beautiful skin, but more importantly we will share with you the 5 Top Foods that are damaging to your skin and your body.

Skin health and the health of your body is not in the parts, it’s in the connection and communication between them. This is the correct understanding upon which to approach your skin. We really need to understand this.

Our skin is living, it is alive! Caring for your skin goes beyond using skincare. Your body is an integrated entity. Your skin is related to your liver, your intestines, your hormones and much more.

Real caring for your skin needs a holistic approach. We are feeding our skin from within and without.

You cannot rub products into your skin which contain chemicals that affect your endocrine system (hormones) and expect long term skin health.

Most dermatologists are of the opinion that there is no relationship between the food we eat and the occurrence of acne, even though this view has been proven to be incorrect.

But let’s put the science aside for a moment. Let’s just take a look with a bit of common sense.

At what age are people most prone to acne?

Adolescence, right?

What happens at adolescence? Significant hormonal changes, yes?

Ok, so we arrive at the agreement that hormones do affect the occurrence of acne. That’s common knowledge. So then the question, what affects our hormones?

Well, the number one factor that influences our hormones is diet. It’s what we eat! This isn’t an opinion; it’s just biology 101.

Every single time we put food into our mouth, we ignite an entire hormonal cascade. These hormones affect all of our other hormones. It’s an entire system that nature is trying to keep in balance continuously.

Eat high amounts of sugar and other non-fibre carbohydrates and you’ll have insulin and leptin spikes, which over time contributes to insulin and leptin resistance. This in turn affects the levels of both of these hormones and the cycle goes on.

What can this look like for your body, which directly affects your skin?

  • Decreased levels of Vitamin C – premature ageing of your skin and loss of collagen
  • Increased levels of stress – increase stress hormones, increasing ageing
  • A whole host of other hormonal issues, which can contribute to skin breakouts and more

So I guess what I’m trying to say is that when we don’t look holistically, we miss the connections between elements.

Eating to keep our hormones happy is the perfect way to invite our skin’s inner glow to radiate outwards. Radiating good health is easy.

Five foods to avoid for happy hormones and beautiful skin:

  1. Sugar
  2. Fructose
  3. Corn Syrup
  4. Wheat
  5. Commercial fruit juice, soft drinks and cordials

The top five best foods for your skin:

  1. Avocados
  2. Blueberries
  3. Coconut Oil
  4. Organic Lamb, Chicken & Fish (Omega 3)
  5. Fibrous Carbohydrates

Now we know what foods to eat and what foods to stay away from for a beautiful skin and a healthy body. However, what we need to ask is, are the substances we are feeding into our skin from without conducive to healthy communication between all of the parts within the skin? Are the substances we are rubbing in conducive to the ecology that exists within this organ of our body we call the skin?

When considering skincare ingredients, one thing’s pretty obvious - if you wouldn’t take it as a health supplement, it won’t be adding to the health or the beauty of your skin.

So when you’re at your local health food store next, see if you can pick up a bottle of hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride or hydroxypropyltrimonium oligosaccharide, along with some oxybenzone and octylmethoxycinnamate. These are skincare ingredients. Take some in the morning and night and see if you’re still alive in a week.

Alternatively, you could just rub on a standard commercial skincare cream and hope for skin health and beautiful skin.

YOUR VOICE

Sylvia T. VIC

Love the support, love the information on this site and truly believe the Living Skincare range is the end of the road. No more searching, my skin loves it!

Karen S. NSW

I have to say, that I am incredibly impressed with the skincare. I'm not sure if I'm imagining things, but there is a definite 'polish' to my skin already; dare I say 'glow'? My skin feels incredibly clean and without a hint of tightness.

Samantha W. VIC

When I was asked to write a testimonial, I didn’t know where to start. I love this range of skincare and the only way I can describe it is that it really is the end of searching for something that will finally work.
