How to get a healthy, flawless and beautiful skin?
Follow my simple tips to improve your skin health and feel amazing and confident.
1. CLEAN EATING
“You are what you eat.” We all know it! There is a strong connection between what you eat and how you look.
Whole unprocessed food is the key!
Add vegetables, fruits, lean protein, healthy fats and whole grain products into your diet. Avoid fast food and foods high in refined sugar.
Let’s have a look which vitamins and minerals may help you to improve your skin health:
promotes cell turnover and helps to prevent acne.

improves wound healing, has anti-inflammatory effects, protects against UV radiation, calms irritated skin and reduces acne.
Sources: turkey, almonds, Brazil nuts and wheat germ.
can improve skin health and faster healing.
Sources: orange, lemon, guava, grapefruit, papaya, tomato and capsicum.
is good for sensitive skin or sun damage.
Sources: sweet potatoes, nuts, olive oil, sunflower seeds, avocados, broccoli and leafy green vegetables.
has antioxidants properties that help protect skin from free radicals.
Sources: wheat germ, tuna, salmon, garlic, Brazil nuts, eggs and brown rice.
Omega 3 fatty acids
inhibit certain molecules that lead to inflammation and resulting skin problems.
Sources: cold water fish such as salmon or sardines, flax seed oil, walnuts, sunflower seeds, almonds.
2. STAY HYDRATED
Drink 2 – 3 litres of plain water and herbal tea. Enjoy diluted vegetable and fruit juices every day. Limit your alcohol intake and try to stick with max one coffee a day.
3. WORK OUT
Exercise stimulates blood flow and makes your skin glow. So be active and move regularly.
4. REDUCE STRESS
Stress is a factor of our busy modern lives and may have an impact on our skin health. Take free time for yourself, switch all of yours electronic devices and relax. Try yoga, meditation or have a bath. And get yourself a good night’s sleep.
5. TAKE CARE
If you have a sensitive skin (like me) prefer natural oils instead of expensive cosmetic care products.
I always use organic coconut or rosehip oil. Both of them work great for me. But you can try also jojoba, tamanu, castor or hemp seed oil and pick the best one for you or mix them together. The options are endless.
