Perfect skin secrets

Before shelling out on a new, expensive skincare routine, you may want to reconsider your diet! Your skin is the largest organ of your body, and it requires proper nutrition to look and function its best. Taking care of yourself on the inside is crucial if you want to look your best on the outside. There are a number of reasons your skin may not be looking its best, some of these are: - Nutrient Deficiencies: Iron, vitamin B12, vitamin B6, antioxidants, lack of good quality protein and fatty acids are all crucial for supporting moisture and skin health. - Poor Diet: Eating too many processed foods or drinking alcohol in excess will affect the texture and appearance of your skin. - Weather: It is common to experience dryness as the weather cools down. - Hormonal Changes: Oily or acne prone skin may be due to an excess of androgen hormones, such as testosterone. Skin becomes more sensitive and reactive around menstruation due to fluctuations of the hormone estrogen and stress hormones, like cortisol can cause flare ups in your skin as well. I recommend testing for these deficiencies and working with a practitioner to resolve nutritional shortcomings. #skincare #healthyskin #vitamins #minerals #diet #healthydiet #functionalmedicine #integrativemedicine #integrativehealth #newyork #newjersey #eatinghealthy #guthealthforlife
