For A Glowing COMPLEXION
The key to glowing and healthy skin starts from the digestive system. When you consume too much refined food, you may have nutritional deficiencies and depleted healthy gut flora that can cause a plethora of health issues, including blemishes, acne, eczema, rosacea, rashes, wrinkles and a sallow complexion.
“When undigested food sits in the digestive tract, our system becomes blocked with toxins from rotting foods and mucus begins to build up along the intestinal walls,” says dermatologist Dr Michael Rich. “This mucus prevents healthy nutrient absorption and waste elimination. One of the first places that this intestinal problem appears is on your skin.”
Dr Rich recommends smoothies, as opposed to juices, for skin health. Smoothies tend to have more fibre to keep the digestive tract healthy while slowing down sugar absorption at the same time.
“If your diet is crossing all the nutritional spectrums and you stay hydrated as well as move your body daily, you will start to feel a shift in your skin,” he says.
