Happy Holidays! We are supposed to smile and cheer and be happy, but very often it is a season that makes our skin unhappy. Why is this? Here is another major reason – part 2 following on from part 1:
2. Food. Change of food and diet will often unbalance your digestive system and also can create more potential skin issues. An increase in consumption of complex carbohydrates, dairy, meat, and any reduction in fruit and vegetable consumption will dramatically alter the activity of inflammatory hormones like insulin and prostaglandin 2. And if alcohol consumption increases (especially if you have inflammatory skin conditions like rosacea and eczema) you will see a flare up of the condition with increased redness and discomfort.
Solution: Yes, it is difficult, but you need to try and control your diet – resist all the candy and processed foods of the season. Reduce alcohol intake. Your body needs healthy antioxidants, but your skin may need it even more. Use the multi-level topical Antioxidant Defense Complex every morning before moisturizer. It contains 18 different antioxidants in 1 topical solution. Use it IN ADDITION TO consuming 5 fruit and 5 vegetable servings every day!
Being gentle to the skin and treating it sensitively, will help it become naturally strong and balanced. Being aggressive will just weaken it further. A happier skin will look fresh and healthy, and younger. A happier skin is a happier you. Happy holidays!
