For 100s of years, women worldwide have strived for skin perfection. In the beauty world, a flawless complexion shouts “beautiful” in a way that no amount of makeup ever could. Kate Moss, Tyra Banks and headline-hugging supermodel Cara Delevingne are amongst celebrities famed for their flawless complexions.
So how does one achieve clear, flawless & blemish-free skin? In a world where life is too crazy and hectic to look after one’s self? Where most working women of today, have no longer than 30 minutes to pamper themselves? Where Pollution in cities and surrounding built up areas has reached an all time high? I often ponder…
Is the air pollution where I live responsible for my blemished skin? Do I have a hormone imbalance? Am I eating enough of “the right” things? Am I using the best beauty creams, face serums and cosmetics available to me? Are the products I choose natural and truly good for my skin? The questions and skincare woes just keep on coming.
A birdy (or should I say a super-cool health & fitness ambassador namely Emily Skye) has been gracing my feeds with inspirational health tweets. Whilst all of Emily’s tweets are thought provoking and insightful; a tweet in-particular caught my eye. It was about how “beauty comes from within,” in a very literal sense. She talked about how beautiful skin takes a LOT of work and eating nourishing foods is half the battle.
I couldn’t agree more.
Now I am not going to claim that chocolate is responsible for spots. And eating honey will rid your skin of all blemishes and imperfections. But what I would like to do, is tell you how a clear complexion can become a reality with a couple of realistic diet changes, extra water consumption and the addition of a beauty supplement.
Making small changes to diet to help clear complexion
The first thing today’s women reach for when having a breakout, or suffering from blemishes and uneven skin, is an expensive cream or treatment. But one of the best things you can do for your skin, is to think about the foods you put in your mouth. Sugar, processed foods, cooking oils and saturated fats can all contribute to troublesome skin. Try avoiding these where possible…
…easier said than done. I know 😉 I’m eating a Lindt christmas treat as I type. (It’s almost Christmas. Please. No judging).
But seriously, if you can, choose healthier options where possible. Your skin is the largest organ in your body and it requires nourishment from within, look after it by avoiding foods that are bad for you. Replacing ‘bad’ foods with healthy unprocessed foods can really help improve skin from within.
Drinking water & hydrate skin thoroughly
This may seem obvious to you, but staying hydrated is a very important factor when striving for beautiful skin. Just as healthy food nourishes and heals skin, adequate water consumption moisturises the dermis (the deeper layers of your skin) and contributes to suppleness and your skin’s ability to protect itself from the elements. Those who do not drink enough water will find that they are prone to dry, patchy, scaly and often unsightly skin; open to the ill effects of weather, pollutants and premature ageing.
Being hydrated can really help your transform your complexion, giving you a natural and super healthy glow. Drinking at least 2/3 extra pints of water a day, will be enough to give thirsty skin a much needed drink.
Using a beauty supplement to achieve skin perfection
Last but not least, a good, no – a great beauty supplement wouldn’t go amiss. A supplement that adds to the nourishment of the above. One that is as natural as possible – a blend of all the right ingredients to aid skin healing, cell regeneration and give your complexion a much needed boost.
I would recommend Help:Beautify Skin by WorksWithWater. Simply because, having recently purchased and completed my first 14 Day course, I am hooked and I just know that you will be too. (A glowing beauty review will follow, I promise).
