From Detox to Diet, Self-Care is the First Step to Skin Care

Natural health is no longer a fad, it’s an accepted way to care for your body and wellness. Most of us have spent many years building up unhealthy habits, and therefore we’ve also built up unnecessary chemicals and toxins throughout our body – thanks in part to the foods we consume andthe commercial lotions and cosmetics we’ve slathered onto our skin.

  • Walnuts – You’ll go nuts over the way Omega 3s help lock in moisture and nutrients that are good for the skin, as well as it’s role as an anti-inflammatory due to its healthy fat content.
  • Water. Water is important to your body, comprising 65% of it by weight. Substituting water as your primary beverage will not only keep you hydrated, it will help you avoid reintroducing into your body the artificial sweeteners, flavors and other potentially harmful ingredients that are often found in commercial sodas and energy drinks.
