The Best Acne Supplements for Clear, Flawless Skin

The Best Acne Supplements for Clear, Flawless Skin

I am fre­quent­ly asked if there are any pills or sup­ple­ments that can assist with get­ting rid of acne or help­ing your skin become glow­ing and flaw­less­ness. In short, the answer is yes. A study pub­lished in July 2013 by The Uni­ver­si­ty of Afy­on Kocate­pe in Turkey report­ed a cor­re­la­tion between acne and low serum (blood) lev­els of vit­a­m­in A, vit­a­m­in E, and zinc.¹ Fas­ci­nat­ing, right? Fur­ther­more, there are sev­er­al stud­ies (includ­ing this real­ly awe­some one) link­ing oxida­tive stress to acne, which means that coun­ter­act­ing oxi­da­tion (via antiox­i­dants) would be part of the log­i­cal course of treat­ment. Inflam­ma­tion and oxida­tive stress are the begin­ning of the acne cycle, so if we elim­i­nate those, we break the cycle and thus elim­i­nate acne. FIRST, MAKE NO MISTAKE – YOUR FOOD MATTERS. I’m not going to willy-nil­ly rec­om­mend sup­ple­ments with­out first remind­ing you of this impor­tant fact. Your food mat­ters. Chee­tos and bagels do not cre­ate healthy tis­sues. You can take all the sup­ple­ments you want, but if you’re chow­ing down on fast food and ice cream sev­er­al times per week, your skin (and most impor­tant­ly, your inter­nal organs) are not going to be healthy. This is not about becom­ing a strict, stressed out food nut. This is about mak­ing wise choic­es that will nour­ish and sup­port you phys­i­cal­ly, men­tal­ly, and emo­tion­al­ly. Since you want clear skin, strict­ly avoid the fol­low­ing for the next 4–6 weeks (you can always sneak them in lat­er and enjoy once in a while if you feel like it): Gluten. This means bread, bagels, pas­tries, cere­als, and oth­er processed foods that use wheat or gluten. Wheat and gluten are inflam­ma­to­ry...

Get a Healthy Tan Glow with…Food

I thought I would share this fun tid­bit with you guys, which is the result of new research by Dr. Ian Stephen and his team at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Not­ting­ham. Get this… The study found that peo­ple who ate a lot of fruit and veg­eta­bles per day have a more gold­en skin tone, due to the carotenoids in the food. Carotenoids are antiox­i­dants that are respon­si­ble for the red, orange, green, and yel­low col­or­ing in fruit and veg­eta­bles. “We found that, given the choice between skin colour caused by sun­tan and skin colour caused by carotenoids, peo­ple pre­ferred the carotenoid skin colour, so if you want a health­ier and more attrac­tive skin colour, you are bet­ter off eat­ing a healthy diet with plen­ty of fruit and veg­eta­bles than lying in the sun.” said Dr. Stephen. Fas­ci­nat­ing, isn’t it? Dr. Stephen also said that the find­ings are impor­tant because evo­lu­tion would favor indi­vid­u­als who mate with health­ier indi­vid­u­als. This is espe­cial­ly good news if you want a lit­tle col­or and do not want to tan – espe­cial­ly since tan­ning leads to pre­ma­ture aging (leath­ery tex­ture, dark spots, wrin­kles, etc.). {HOW MUCH & HOW LONG} Dr. Stephen had par­tic­i­pants con­sume five extra por­tions of fruit and veg­eta­bles every day for two months. The result was a more red and yel­low pig­men­ta­tion in the skin, which lends the tan glow that gen­er­al­ly make us healthy-look­ing (and there­fore “more attrac­tive”) to oth­er humans. {SOURCES OF CAROTENOIDS} days dur­ing which time I have list­ed some excel­lent, acne-safe sources of carotenoids below. There are more choic­es, but some are not friend­ly to acne-prone skin (such as shrimp and grape­fruit),...

Grow Your Hair Longer & Thicker

online pay­day loans direct lenders no cred­it checkwww.lulufashioncoach.com/scripts/ This is a favorite top­ic of mine because I have fine hair that is nat­u­ral­ly curly, and I’ve always been inter­est­ed in mak­ing my hair longer and thick­er. This is all the infor­ma­tion I have gath­ered for the last sev­er­al years. I also just dis­cov­ered an awe­some YouTube chan­nel yes­ter­day called YouTip­s4U, with some great infor­ma­tion on grow­ing and car­ing for long hair, so def­i­nite­ly check her out when you get a chance. Here’s the YouTube video if you want to watch: {A LITTLE FACT} Everyone’s hair is dif­fer­ent, and the fol­low­ing tips will sim­ply help you to max­i­mize your hair growth poten­tial. The aver­age hair growth per mon­th is 1/2″ though some peo­ple may grow 3/4″ or 1″ per mon­th. Don’t stress if your hair grows the aver­age of 1/2″ — this is genet­i­cal­ly pre­de­ter­mined, but you can do a lot to pre­vent break­age and stim­u­late healthy, thick­er hair growth. {TIP #1} Get your pro­tein. Your hair ker­at­in grows from the inside out, so your pro­tein and over­all nutri­tion intake is of utmost impor­tance. After much tri­al and error with my diet, I dis­cov­ered that with­out a doubt, includ­ing some grass-fed ani­mal prod­ucts gives me thick­er, health­ier, shinier hair. On the oth­er hand, I have one friend in par­tic­u­lar that was com­plete­ly veg­an for sev­er­al years and still grew a thick mop of hair. Pay atten­tion to your indi­vid­u­al needs — one size does not fit all! I com­piled the fol­low­ing list of pro­tein-rich foods for you (I pur­pose­ly exclud­ed pro­tein-rich foods that are unfriend­ly to our hor­mones, weight, and skin), which...
