The start of the new year is the perfect time to build new habits. Are you wanting to take better care of your skin, yet not sure how to? We’ve got you covered. Here are simple and effective ways to get that radiant glow and improve your skin in 2022.
Hydration is the unsung hero for healthy skin! Make sure you’re drinking 2-3L of water per day. If you’re having trouble drinking enough water, try adding lemons, cucumbers or mint to add some flavor. Another option is to drink herbal (caffeine-free) teas throughout the day to hit your water intake goals.
Food impacts every facet of your health, and skin is no exception! Eating whole foods and minimizing processed foods, sugar and alcohol plays a huge role in the appearance of your skin.
Avoid foods that cause breakouts
The proteins in milk (whey and casein), trigger the release of IGF-1 (a hormone similar to insulin), which is a hormone known to trigger acne breakouts. Milk also contains testosterone precursors, which can worsen acne.
Sugar increases androgens (a type of hormone) and inflammation, which both play a role in the development of acne.
There are certain foods individuals can be intolerant to that can have a major impact on the body, increase inflammation, and contribute to acne. If you suspect you might have a food intolerance, set up an appointment with a Naturopathic Doctor/Physician.
Take Top Up Tonic Daily
Vitamin C, E, and probiotics are skin-friendly ingredients in Top Up Tonic that are working in the background to keep your skin clear and vibrant. Vitamins C and E are antioxidants, which reduces damage from exposure to environmental pollutants and UV-radiation. Antioxidants have an anti-aging effect on the skin, keeping you looking hot as hell.
Vitamin C also plays a key role in the formation of collagen, which improves skin elasticity and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Probiotics have also been shown to reduce inflammation and improve acne.
It’s important to note that skin changes take time. Stick to these routines for 2-3 months to really see the full benefit!
