Beauty from the Inside Out

What you eat and drink shows up on your face. Be it a bit of extra body fat, wrinkles from dehydration or consuming too much sugar or scaly patches from drinking too much alcohol.

The ideal diet for beautiful healthy skin is as follows…

Drink plenty of filtered (preferably alkaline) water

  • this hydrates you inside and out including minimizing lines and wrinkles
  • satiates hunger, keeps you full longer so you consume less calories
  • helps flush toxins out of your body 

Eat green leafy vegetables (organic is better)

  • these tasty vegetables are low in calories
  • help burn fat
  • are anti-carcinogenic (anti-cancer causing)
  • they help to build the healthy bacteria in your gut
  • they are heart healthy
  • high in vitamin K, folate, beta-carotene and lutein which help prevent premature aging

Drink red wine

  • yes! you read that correctly. Red wine contains resveratrol which has been proven to slow the aging process
  • limit yourself to 3 glasses a week (a 5oz pour is one serving)
  • it boosts the immune system
  • contains anti-oxidants
  • promotes longevity
  • may help prevent cancer, heart disease and high cholesterol

Eat fresh or frozen berries often

  • berries are rich in anti-oxidants which help combat disease causing free radicals which also contribute to premature aging
  • high in fiber
  • help fight inflammation
  • may help lower cholesterol
  • may help fight cancer
  • improve your skin

Consume Omega 3 Fatty Acids

  • high levels of omega 3 increase the phospholipid bi-layer of your skin making it retain moisture, appear plumper and minimize fine lines and wrinkles
  • may help prevent and correct sun damage
  • they are age-defying by delaying the skin’s aging process
  • vegan sources are flax seeds, hemp seeds, walnuts and chia seeds
