Food for Thought

Thursday, February 01, 2018

Taking a complete wellbeing approach is the simple answer to glowing, hydrated, plumped skin. Understanding your skin and everything it needs can be complicated and vary day to day. Aggressors like pollution, heating, air conditioning, stress, and hormonal activity can drastically affect the changing needs of our skin, leaving it lackluster and not reaching its full glowing potential. So how do we combat this?

It’s about taking a simple, 360 wellbeing approach to our lives which will reveal our best skin, thinking about nutrition from both inside and out.

For decades we have been told that fat is bad for us, but finally, we are learning and understanding that there are good fats (lipids) and that they are vital for good heart health, fighting inflammation, improving nutrient absorption, all of which have a hugely positive impact on our skin. Omegas are part of this family and are rich in many fish, such as mackerel, salmon, but also available in vegan ingredients such as flax, chia, hemp, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, avocados, and walnuts.

Eating foods rich in omegas will encourage a naturally plumped, hydrated glow, and the recipes don’t have to be time-consuming or expensive. We’ve been enjoying this green smoothie from our Wellbeing Expert, Yvonne Wake, to help nourish our body, mind, and skin all at once!

Mega Omega Green Juice Recipe

You will need:

  • Apple, 1 large or 2 small

  • ½ Avocado
  • Spirulina, 1 teaspoon
  • Small handful of Chia and Flax Seeds

We also need to replace these natural fatty acids in the skin with the help of omega-rich face oils. This will increase natural hydration levels, enrich your skin with antioxidants, provide greater elasticity to your skin, giving instant visible improvement. Adding in a short facial massage to your evening routine will give further instant glow rewards, your skin will thank you!
