What Kind of Diet Supports a Good Clean Skincare Regime?

It’s no secret that a focus on nutrition is critical for all over health. The skin is the body’s largest organ, and much like a diet can significantly affect your heart or your kidneys, the proper diet can support a clean skincare regime.

Everything Starts With Hydration

Healthy skin is a hallmark of a healthy body. Knowing how to nourish our body for the best skin possible is part of building the best diet possible. It all starts with a foundation of hydration. Dehydration will clearly show dry patches, itchiness, and a dull appearance in the skin.

Any diet should begin with hydration, and there are many options available. Soda and artificially sweetened beverages should be avoided in favor of water, sparkling water, and freshly squeezed juices such as orange juice or tomato juice.

People should strive for at least eight glasses of water a day to keep their skin hydrated. It may take a few weeks to start seeing the effects of regular hydration, but the benefits will be evident in no time. Skin will be glowing and supple, and dry patches will become a thing of the past.

Avoid Processed Foods and Gluten

Several popular diets stress clean eating and non-processed foods. These diets look to eliminate sugars, grains/wheat, dairy, additives, and alcohol. Ingesting sugar and other aspects of processed foods can lead to inflammation, which in turn can lead to acne and puffiness. Gluten can inflame the gut, and gut inflammation means skin inflammation. Focus on gut health with probiotics will eventually translate to healthier skin.

Some food products can also trigger hormonal reactions, which can trigger acne. Eating a diet high in processed foods can kick off a never-ending cycle of acne flare-ups and attempts to battle the acne with skincare products. By limiting the amount of processed foods and foods containing gluten, people can see better results from their clean skincare regime.

Bring on the Fruits and Vegetables

Fruits and vegetables are foundational to a great, healthy diet. They can help with skincare as well. Many fruits and vegetables are a great source of antioxidants, which help skin maintain a natural glow. Antioxidants also support supple skin and an even skin tone. Some great fruits and vegetables to include in your diet are blueberries, sweet potatoes, spinach, papaya, and kale.

Vitamin C is well known for supporting a glowing complexion, making fruits high in Vitamin C such as oranges an excellent addition to your skincare-supporting diet.

Supporting Products

A great diet is only one part of a clean skin care regime. Clean products can work in tandem with a healthy diet for the ultimate in successful results. Supplements such as magnesium and Vitamin D support skin health, reducing acne by lowering cortisol levels and inflammation.

Of course, an excellent moisturizer can significantly improve the skin’s feel and appearance, especially when teamed with increased hydration through water intake.

Clean skincare is a perfect tool for your skincare tool chest to work along with a healthy diet. Clean skincare that is free of gluten, dairy, nuts, and other allergens are the best choices to work along with a healthy diet for the best skin possible.

Our skin can be a window into our overall health. Our skin can be in its best shape with thoughtful food choices, regular hydration, and the right clean products.

Not being able to find skincare products that could guarantee being gluten-free, my husband and I decided to create our own.  Both of us have over 30 years of pharmaceutical medicine development experience.  We decided to use scientific and medical skills to enhance the lives of all people our products touch.
