Five "Skinfluencers" & How They Affect Your Skin.
"Skin Influencers" affect the one organ that we can see every day. Our SKIN. We "check-in" everyday when we look at our skin in the mirror. Our skin tells us a lot about our health and puts our story out there for all to see.
On a daily basis our feelings are affected with a simple glance into a mirror. Am I confident or am I self-conscious today? Others do the same as they look at us, by human nature, they analyze our appearance. It's not meant to be judgy, it's just the way we are.
You know what I"m talking about, we've all been there. You run into someone, and the first thing they say is, "Wow, you look great!" OR maybe they say, "How are you doing. You look tired. Are you okay?"
From that initial glance at you, they have read your skin story. Unconsciously, they are gauging your current health from a very short look over.
So, the million-dollar question. How can you start controlling the appearance of your skin? Which "skin influencers" can help you?
Here are five major influencers that can help you start mastering your skin and health today.
Skin is an organ and therefore needs oxygen to survive. The physical symptoms of dying or dead skin are dull, gray, sagging, and clogged skin. The following tips will help promote oxygen to your skin and help to reinvigorate it
1. Vitamin A
Topical Retinol and Retinyl Palmitate for sensitive skin
Use products that allow for daily "natural" removal of dead cell build-up. This will cause the dead cells to naturally shed and new cells to be pushed to the skin's top layers.
** AVOID Retinol and high doses of Vitamin A, especially in the First Trimester of Pregnancy, and I always recommend in general just to stay off it while pregnant and breastfeeding just to be safe.
**AVOID retinol products that have other exfoliating acids, like lactic and salicylic acid
- Eat Digestible Retinol Foods
Foods that naturally metabolize into vitamin A. Beta Carotene from carrots, sweet potato is great natural sources of Vitamin A.
2. Vitamin B complex.
The body absolutely needs Vitamin B's to work every day. Vitamin B bears the load of so many disgruntle activities that take place in the body. To avoid aggressors like free radicals, cortisol, gluten-acid-forming foods, Vitamin B must be replenished every day to make up for any loss while avenging the skin aggressors in the body.
3. Get Plenty Of Land & Sea Greens
As you know, I am a huge prominent of nature and eating as close to nature as possible. That means avoiding any processed foods (naturally vegetables and plants that have been heated) Plants and Vegetables from land and sea provide absorbable minerals, vitamins, and proteins that can be digested by the body without stress
- Wheatgrass & Barley They have wild amounts of energy, pro healing, and nutritional value that can instantly uplift your health and reflect and glow from within. How do they do it? And what are the right amount of each to have in a day?
Wheatgrass is the mother of all greens, in my opinion. It cleanses, detoxifies, and replenishes your gut. That is why I recommend that all my clients focus on what they eat instead of focusing on what not to eat.
- Wheatgrass, preferably KAMUT 5g a day
- Vitamin K, C, A, B's, manganese, chlorophyll, and many other tissue benefits nutrients.
- Barley-3.5g a day.
- Provides a crucial mineral Chromium and Selenium.
- Vitamin C calcium, iron, and folate.
L Glutathione is a powerful primary antioxidant that our body needs to help keep the liver healthy and strong. When the liver starts to fail and or becomes drudged in junk from a poor diet and lifestyle, wrinkles, sagging skin, breakouts, and dryness develop.
I recommend a daily dose of 500mg, preferably in a liquid form time-release formula. The results can be seen and felt as it helps the liver perform at optimal levels.
Here is what L Glutathione can do for your health!
- Fortifies the skin with natural UV Protection and brightens the complexion.
- May reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
- Detoxifies the body
- improves the immune system
- Nourishes the brain and liver to function at optimal levels.
5. Protein from Plants
A simple and super effective way to help your health and skin is by eating protein from plants and not animals. Why? Because they are more alkaline and not acidic. Acidity in your diet is acidity for your organs. Just like the saying goes "Acid on the brain". Well, it's acid on the body, and acid breaks down all tissues of the body.
To improve your skin and health in one easy step, I recommend having Pea Protein Milk. It is cold-pressed, easier to digest than pea protein powder, and is easier to absorb. I am a fan because there is no cooking involved, no recipes to follow or excuses not to do it. Just pour and drink.
Ripple Pea Protein Unsweetened Milk )my personal favorite)
- 1 cup 80 calories
- 8g of complete amino acid protein
- less than on carb
- zero sugar
- 4.5g of fat from sunflower oil-best to have, in my opinion.
- vitamin A palmitate-(Retinol)
- 30% Vit D
- 100% B12
- 35% of Calcium
Take A StandI hope you will find that your health is the most important thing you do and take care of every day. Don't take it for granted, don't think it's always going to be there. It's a lot of what you put into your body that shows up on the outside. Skin and your Health will always be one and the same. The tips I give should help you realize that beautiful, healthy skin is a reflection of your beautiful pink organs full of oxygen and blood running freely through your veins.
What do I mean by this? As an esthetician, I am trained and educated in how to understand how the skin works physically. Therefore, I can better recommend and implement the correct skin remedies when it fails or needs corrective therapies. Not all skins require “all hands on deck,” but the skin does need more attention as it ages because the body’s hormones are changing and then play an enormous role in how your skin behaves and ultimately how it looks to the rest of the world.
