Happy Healthy Skin

Beautiful glowing skin. In the aftermath of the overindulgence of Christmas & welcoming in 2020, getting back into work mode & navigating this hot summer – well, skin often falls to the bottom of the priority list.

Some tips for you.  I know if I do these I find my skin is very happy!

☺️ Limit your intake of refined sugars & processed foods.

☺️ Make sure your diet is rich in fresh whole foods.

☺️ Include lots of antioxidant rich foods – THINK: blueberries (OK any berries are good really), extra virgin olive oil, broccoli, beetroot, pecans, hazelnuts.

☺️ Get lots of healthy fats into your diet – THINK: extra virgin olive oil, oily fish, nuts & seeds, as well as avocado.

☺️ Vitamin C from lots of different sources – THINK: citrus, red capsicum, broccoli, kiwis & berries.

☺️ Enjoy foods rich in zinc – THINK: pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds & tahini, chickpeas & hummus, grass fed meat, shellfish.

☺️ Stay hydrated, that is approx. 2L/day (NOT caffeine containing beverages – they don’t count).

☺️ Get enough sleep & make time for any habits which reduce your stress levels.

☺️ Use minimal chemicals on your skin AKA clean skincare.  My fav is A Bit Hippy which is Australian made & based down the Goldy – winning! 

A lot of diet tips in there right?  Your skin is a fabulous indicator of what is happening with your general health, so working on your diet will have multiple benefits.

I am incredibly passionate about food and its healing power – it is pretty amazing how what you eat affects how your body works! In fact, I was so fascinated, I went & got myself a degree in it – a Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine). Now in all honesty I don’t eat or live a perfect lifestyle, nor will I ever pretend I do. Realistically I know you won’t be perfect either. And that’s OK. As a Clinical Nutritionist I focus on what we eat and how this has an impact on our health and wellness – everyday.
