In my experience, skin problems can be the most complicated and frustrating issues. Especially when the issues are written all over your face … hello acne! I’ve been through it myself and have had to hone in on making sure my diet is improving and not hurting my complexion. Our skin is our largest organ and it’s usually the first to signal that something may be off in our bodies. Think acne, blemishes, eczema, bumpy rashes, and more. I always encourage my clients to take their skin message seriously.
There are so many factors that play into skin issues. Think stress for instance. If you’re overly stressed and your body is releasing too much cortisol, you could be battling your own adrenal system, throwing off your hormones and creating an imbalance that can lead to acne. There are environmental chemicals that can affect your skin as well. Hormones, ahh—clear skin’s worst enemy. Allergies to food, household cleaners, and more can also be the root of skin blemishes. No matter which root problem you’re facing, these foods can help get your skin going in the right direction.
Here are the top five foods and one drink I highly recommend to help improve your complexion.
