Beauty Begins on the Inside
When it comes to skincare, that means paying attention to what you put in your body as well as what you put on it. Using the right moisturizer for your skin type is only part of the equation. For truly healthy, radiant skin, experts recommend a nutrient-rich diet. Try to stay away from processed foods, please. Your skin craves fresh fruits and vegetables, wholesome carbohydrates and fiber, lean proteins, a certain amount of healthy fats and lots of hydration.
Get glowing! When it comes to feeding your skin, you have lots of delicious options. Among the top choices are almonds, avocadoes, blueberries, eggs, salmon, tomatoes and foods rich in Vitamin C, such as kiwis, oranges, red and green peppers, grapefruit, strawberries, broccoli, cantaloupe, pineapple and mangos.
Avocadoes – which contain biotin, the basis of healthy skin – are a great choice. They’re packed with heart- and skin-healthy monounsaturated fats (MUFAs) that help provide the fats and ceramides crucial for creating healthy skin cells. Research shows that MUFAs may also ease itchy, dry skin – a definite plus after a Chicago winter!
You can use avocadoes as a topical moisturizer but at Spa Space, we prefer to eat them!
