Building Block #1: What You Put on Your Skin and What You Don’t

Did you know that your skin absorbs about 60% of what you put on it? This means that if you use a lot of hand sanitizer or abrasive hand cleansers, you’ll likely damage your skin. Frequent use of these, as well as household cleaners, can damage the skin microbiome and cause a bacterial imbalance. Over washing and sanitizing could lead to eczema, psoriasis, dandruff, acne, and fungal infections. Basically, try not to strip your skin of the good bacteria!

Building Block #2: Eat Healthy and Drink Lots of Water

This comes as no surprise to anyone that eating a healthy, balanced diet and drinking plenty of water results in healthy skin. A well balanced diet comprised of lean meats and fish, colorful range of fruits and vegetables, and nuts and seeds is super important when it comes to your skin’s health. Also, be sure to avoid processed foods and sugar which can actually aggravate skin and possibly cause breakouts. Lastly, drink at least 8 glasses of water per day, and stay away from sodas and juices which are loaded with sugar.

Building Block #3: The ABCs of Vitamins

Healthy, radiant skin starts from the inside out, and nothing is better for your skin than vitamins A, B, C, D, & E. You can find these in fresh fruits and veggies, oily fish, and nuts and seeds. You can also get your daily vitamins through supplements.

Building Block #4: Sun is Important

Although the sun can be extremely harmful to the skin, it’s actually super important that your skin receives about 20 minutes of sun each day. This is because our skin and our bodies need vitamin D. So unless you’re taking a vitamin D supplement, it’s imperative that you slather on some good quality sunscreen and soak up the sun for 20 minutes. Choose either morning or late afternoon sun, as mid-day sun can be very powerful.  Read More……..
