#6: Diet...can it really help?



I'd say from my experience: yes.

Trying to eat healthy is not only great for me internally, I definitely think it is reflected in the skin. Now, I know that some people eat really healthy and still have acne or conversely eat horribly and have flawless skin...so it is not the same for everyone. It is perhaps just one piece of the puzzle.

Some things I think are worth trying in term of dietary changes:

- limiting intake of sugars(ESPECIALLY processed)...but not drinking too much juice either

- eliminating chemical additives as much as possible (artificial colours, preservitives, flavours)

- choosing fresh over processed

- drinking plenty of water

- snack on more fruits and veggies instead of sweet treats or junk food

I am not very strict when it comes to diet...I have a bit of a sweet tooth and enjoy variety so I am not willing to give up entirely on the 'less healthy' foods...just limit my intake or have them in moderation. For example, I do not think my skin does well when I consume too much coffee but I really enjoy it :pray: . So I no longer make it at home and will only allow myself to have it when I am out(like at a cafe); since this becomes expensive I now only have coffee about once or twice a week. When I am at home I just have to substitute tea. Yup, my will power is off the charts on this one.

Now for a little extra.

Lemon water detox.

Recently, besides having a skin care routine that my skin is responding to, I had started to do a little detoxing with lemon water. I think this has helped my skin. Once a day I just squeezed the juice of half of a lemon into a glass of water. Yes, it is sour and not the greatest tasting, but within a few days my skin was noticeably clearer. I would recommend trying it for 3 days to 1 week and see if you notice any improvement. Cheers!
