Feed your skin this Christmas

With the party season upon us, and Christmas just around the corner, now is the perfect time to give your skin some extra love and care with the lead up to the new year.

The power of beautiful skin is something that should not be underestimated. Although beauty is more than skin deep, it can be difficult to feel beautiful if you are not confident in your own skin. Having healthy, radiant skin not only allows us to face daily life with more confidence, but it is also a clear reflection of how healthy we are.

As our skin is the largest organ of the body and is largely responsible for the elimination of toxins, it is important to pay attention to our bodies signs.  When our bodies are not functioning properly from the inside, our skin is usually the first place symptoms show whether it is in the form of a breakout, rash or even just a dull complexion.

We all know true beauty lies beneath the surface, and when it comes to our skin this couldn’t be truer. Whilst makeup and cleanses are temporary solutions, if you’re looking for longevity, the secret is nourishment within.  So before you purchase the latest miracle cream, why not invest your time and money into improving your digestive health?

A proper functioning digestive system is essential in achieving radiant skin. Our digestive system plays a key role in absorbing the nutrients from our food that our bodies need for growth, repair and normal functioning. When we have digestive issues, this affects the way our bodies retain nutrients, leading to poor absorption of the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants needed to keep skin looking healthy.

There’s no doubt that radiant skin is the number one priority on everyone’s beauty to do list this Christmas. Make sure you give your skin extra attention over the holidays, as added stress and poor diet can take its toll and affect the quality of your skin. With the party season already in full swing, feed your skin with these key nutrients to keep you feeling fresh and looking radiant over the silly season.

Eat enough Vitamin C – Vitamin C is a super antioxidant. It is needed to support the immune system, promote radiant skin and help blemishes heal properly. Vitamin C helps the production of collagen as it strengthens the cells that support the skin. The best sources of Vitamin C include blueberries, spinach, sweet potato and citrus. All our marine collagen flavoured blends include vitamin C enriched fruits to promote the collagen production within our bodies.

Drink plenty of water: This may be obvious but the key to radiant supple skin is hydration. To include more water into your diet, try infusing your water with natural fruits to increase your daily intake, it will give you a hint of sweetness without extra calories or sugar.

Eat healthy fats: Essential fatty acids, such as omega 3 and 6, act as a natural moisturiser for your skin. Omega-3 and omega-6 fats are essential in forming the cellular structure of skin and hair. They support the skins suppleness, largely through their ability to retain moisture and promoting skin hydration. Foods that contain high levels of essential fatty acids include chia seeds, salmon, nuts and seeds.

Invest in a good beauty supplement: Beauty powders are great ways to assist in the maintenance of good inner health when we need extra help. Make sure to look for products that contain pre and probiotics to aid digestion and help the absorption of minerals to ensure we are glowing from the inside.
