We’ve all had to deal with dry, spotty or blemished skin. Or we’ve taken enough trips around the sun to start seeing stressed and wrinkled skin.
Most of us look to our cabinets overflowing with cosmetics to try cover these issues up, as we always have done. As the trillion dollar beauty industry has taught us to do over decades.
But this never sat right with me.
From a young age I would question my mum, and then friends when older.
As a gardening enthusiast, the analogy I love is “if your plants’ leaves are turning brown, you don’t just paint them green every day”. You look beyond the leaves, beyond what you can see on the outside, ensure their roots are healthy and eating the right things.
Your skin is the window into your body. Here are some key tips for keeping your body healthy, which your skin will reflect:
Fruit and Vegetables
Most nutritionists agree 5+ a day isn’t enough. We should be aiming for 8-10 fruit and veges a day.
Getting a broad range of food is key for gut health as your body loves getting nutrients from lots of different sources. Try mixing your recipes up to get different sorts of fruit and veges, aiming for a rainbow of colours.
Choose fruit and veges with high Vitamin C as your body needs this as fuel to produce its own collagen.
Fat has had a bad run over the past few decades, made out as a villain. Whereas in reality, healthy fat is our hero in a cape.
Our body is made up of fats and without eating it, our bodies and skin would really suffer. The essential fatty acids act as a natural moisturiser for your skin, keeping it supple and improving elasticity. These fats also come packaged with a healthy dose of vitamin E (a vitamin many of us lack), which will help protect against free radical damage
For that beautiful glowing skin, a diet rich in wholefood sources of fat is essential (Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats):
- Nuts & Seeds
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Grass-fed Meats
That little bit extra
While we all strive to follow the perfect diet, treat our bodies like a temple, and live a stress free life like a monk, our lifestyles mean this just isn’t possible all the time.
Luckily that’s where Aglow can help.
Starting at about age 28, collagen production naturally begins to slow, which can have all sorts of negative effects on your body. By age 40, collagen begins to deplete faster than your body can reproduce it, and by age 60, over half of your body’s collagen has been depleted.
So while eating the right foods can help your body produce some collagen, adding a collagen supplement to your daily regimen can boost those collagen levels to retain that youthful skin. We've developed an incredibly special blend that will improve skin, hair and nail health from different angles to deliver the absolute best results. Click here to see Aglow Marine Collagen.
Getting that broad range of nutrients that your skin needs from key veges can’t always be done, with some being out of season, or you’ve never used them before (e.g. Dandelion root). That’s where our Skin, Hair & Nails Super Greens powder helps.
We’ve had countless customers give feedback how this super green powder has changed their appearance. One woman had acne her entire adult life, but this was cleared up after a few weeks of taking Aglow. It just shows that getting the right nutrients and vitamins that your body might be deficient in, is so powerful.
