What you eat, how much water you drink, and your overall lifestyle habits have a huge impact on the largest organ we have….our skin. Here are 6 tips on how we can keep our skin nourished and glowing, even during the colder months
Throughout the summer when it’s hot we naturally crave lighter, more plant-based foods (much more fruit and veggies) because our hunger tends to be a little lighter. Cooler temps make us crave more comfort foods.
Tip 1: Choose healthy comfort foods
Instead of heavy, fatty, rich, unhealthy foods, choose healthy comfort foods that are naturally detoxifying and anti-inflammatory to help you glow from the inside out.
- Winter squash
- Sweet potato
- Carrots, beets, parsnips — roasted they taste wonderful drizzled with some tahini
Tip 2: Warm up a salad!
- Add roasted veggies to a salad to warm it up
- Add turmeric or ginger to a stir fry or a buddha bowl
All these foods are naturally rich in gut-friendly fiber to keep our digestive system healthy and elimination easy. Good elimination is key to a healthy glow inside and out!
Tip 3: Supplements
- Vitamin D
- fish oil
Tip 4: Sleep
Beauty sleep is legit! Adults aim for 7-9 hours of sleep. Earplugs, eye masks, blue light blocking glass, and sleepy time tea are all-natural solutions for good sleep.
Tip 5: Manage Stress Levels
Stress peaks in the fall and winter months. Stress ages your skin impacts sleep and makes you crave refined carbs, alcohol, and sugars. Make sure you have some stress management strategies in place. Go for daily nature walks, do a 10-minute daily meditation, do a 5-minute journal – all of which are research-proven ways to reduce stress.
