We hope your holiday season is off to a beautiful start!
Holidays can be a time when we decide to indulge in certain habits that may not support our health, but in the moment bring that instant gratification. Whether it’s sugar, savory treats or alcohol, there are usually plenty of opportunities to indulge over the holiday season. Most of us who indulge in that sweet treat (I certainly do!) only on occasion, don’t feel the negative consequences. If this becomes a habit, however, many of us start to feel symptoms of an unbalanced diet. One of the places where this shows up first is on our skin. Whether your face gets puffy, you get pimples, or blemishes, there is a lot you can do to prevent this.
While it’s important to use quality, non-toxic products for our skin, and work with a dermatologist, to help treat any skin conditions, what’s often underappreciated is the connection between what we eat and the health of our gut on healthy skin.
With holiday parties, family gatherings and New Year’s Eve party approaching, we’d like to share with you how to achieve that skin glow by optimizing what goes on on the inside.
Our health coach and nutrition therapist, Vanessa Kahler, shares 3 tips for holiday (and anytime) eating habits to help us achieve that healthy skin glow from the inside.
If you are looking to clear up your complexion or maintain your glow over the holiday season, then you will want to pay special attention to what you are eating and make sure you are mindful of the following areas that affect our skin.
Our diet can affect our skin health in a number of ways. For example, some of the causes include:
- Disturbed gut health and microbiome
- Blood sugar imbalance
- Nutrient deficiency
To your gorgeous glow!
