3 Simple Tips For Healthy Skin That Glows

3 Simple Tips For Healthy Skin That Glows


Cut Out Dairy Products To Reduce Acne:

Milk products contain cow hormones, such as Insulin Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1), which can cause inflammation and increase acne.  Milk can also promote excessive oil production, clogging up your pores, which in turn creates and environment that is good for the bacteria that causes acne, making the situation even worse.

Update: Regarding the above statement, the majority of the studies about milk and acne are observational and from self reporting.  This basically means these kinds of studies are the least reliable.  That being said, there does seem to be an association between milk consumption and acne in adolescent boys and girls.

In addition, the acne association seems to be primarily from milk, especially skim milk, not other dairy products.

Get A Good Nights Sleep To Keep You Skin Glowing:

Why’s it called a beauty sleep?  Getting enough sleep keeps your circulation strong, which helps to nourish all your cells.  When you don’t get enough sleep your circulatory system is not as efficient.  The bonus of a good sleep, of course, is you’ll feel better too.

Get Your Vitamin C:

Vitamin C plays an essential role in Collagen Production; Collagen is the primary protein found in all of your connective tissue, including your skin.  Make sure to get plenty of fruits and green leafy vegetables to keep your Vitamin C levels high, and consider using a good Vitamin C supplement too.
