Living The Glow Life: Actionable steps for glowing success.

As Above So Below

Have you heard the old adage “as above, so below?” 

This sage counsel pertains to many things in life, but it’s especially potent advice for maintaining thehealth and wellbeing of your skin, at any age.

You can use the best topical ingredients in the world, but if you aren't paying attention to the cellular health of your entire body, those results will only last so long, and won’t deliver the lasting, glowing results you deserve.

Eat Your Way To Your Healthy Glow

There are many reasons to eat our way to healthy, and luckily for us the consequences of these actions can show on the skin rather quickly.

Not only does eating a healthy, well balanced diet give you a recipe for dermal luminescence, it also increases your health-span, which is the years of your life that you enjoy healthy and robust wellbeing.

3 First Steps To Healthy Skin

Here are three things you can do to eat your way to better skin, and increase health factors from the inside out.

  • Take Vitamin C - This everyday powerhouse vitamin is a cornerstone to fighting inflammation in your entire body. Not only does this property scavenge the body for free radicals to neutralize, it alsogives your body exactly what it needs to restructure and repair collagen. If you’re seeing a lack of bounce back in your skin, elevate your Vitamin C intake with low glycemic fruits and veggies. This fills in the gaps and creates luminous, firmer skin in the most delicious of ways.
  • Ditch The Dairy.Yes, I know. This one can be a very difficult to break up, but if you are having issues with acne, the first goal you should work toward is going dairy free. Lactose intolerance is real, but not the only issue here. Conventionally raised cows are loaded with growth hormones, antibiotics, and stress hormones from terrible living conditions. This adds up to a consistent ingestion of endocrine altering byproducts that wreak havoc on your skin. To know if this is a factor for you, leave the dairy out for three weeks and see if your acne clears up. From there if you may try goat or sheep’s cheese and gauge your reaction. In our Tucson, AZ based aesthetics practice, we’ve helped many clients overcome stubborn acne by educating them on the dangers of conventional dairy for skin health.
  • Eat Healthy Fats. Fats are IN, and healthy fats are one of the most important conscious decisions to add into your meals. There are many vital nutrients, like Vitamin D, that are only absorbed by the body if they are in a fat carrier. Be mindful of which fats to pick because not all are created equal. Stick with natural fats like coconut oil, avocado, fish oils, nuts, and seeds to help your body with remineralization and fiber based elimination. These amazing hormone regulating compounds help to equalize the body and the skin as a whole.

Pairing conscious eating with our incredibly potent, eco-lux Core Collection will give you the skin you’ve always wanted, but never knew how to get.

When you start to understand and respect your body, you’ll be able to make empowered choices. Healthy life choices have a huge impact on your overall well being and will lead to lasting, skin positive results.

5 Ways To Amp Up Your Beauty From The Inside Out

We all know that beauty starts on the inside.  Let’s look at some ways to go beyond skin deep to get the results you desire. 

  1. Be kind to yourself:  Be conscious of your thoughts. Notice when you feel yourself going into a negative state. Because of our survival instincts, humans have a negativity bias built into our psyche. This was helpful back when we needed to remember not to eat a poisonous plant in the wild, or that a tiger lived in that particular cave. But in modern life it is used to ruminate on current dramas, past hurts, or future anxieties. See if you can notice when you go down your particular rabbit hole, and see if you can change your thoughts to kindness and gratitude. If not, just focus on the word STOP.
