Be a “Glow Getter”: 5 Ways to Get Glowing Skin in 2019

January 09, 2019

Want beautiful, healthy-looking skin? Here’s how to get a glowing complexion from the inside out.

The holiday season is certainly fun, but it can be a challenging time to take proper care of our bodies. Yummy (yet inflammatory) foods and drinks, hectic travel schedules and lack of sleep can get the better of us, and it can show in the skin. We call these factors “glow dimmers,” and they include:

  • Coffee
  • Milk and dairy products
  • Wheat
  • Sugar
  • Alcohol
  • Stress
  • Poor or inadequate sleep

But not to worry! Just as there are “glow dimmers,” there are also “glow-getters!”


- FOOD AND HABITS TO GET YOUR SKIN GLOWING IN NO TIME -

water

NO.1 WATER, WATER, AND MORE WATER

Water — the ultimate beauty tonic. Water helps flush toxins from the system and it hydrates the skin. The more hydrated you are, the more smooth, elastic, and youthful your skin will look and feel.

sleep

NO. 2 OPTIMAL SLEEP

“Beauty sleep” isn’t just an old wives’ tale! Time spent dreaming is time spent repairing and restoring your cellular tissues. During this process, you also build collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. These molecules are responsible for plumpness, elasticity and glowing skin.

NO. 3 STRESS REDUCTION

The stress hormone cortisol has been linked to collagen breakdown in the skin. The good news: this can be reversed as you learn to manage everyday stress and anxiety. Just ten minutes of deep breathing or meditation a day can help. Or try one of our favorite stress reduction methods, Emotional Freedom Technique, aka Tapping.

sauna

NO. 4 SAUNA

Regular infrared sauna sessions — we recommend 8-10 minutes of sweating, several times weekly — is a great way to improve complexion through better circulation. Increased sweating also accelerates the body's natural ability to rid itself of toxins and impurities.

carrots, berries, other veggies

No. 7 Systemic Booster for Probiotic Support and Whole Body Health

green tea

NO. 5 A PLANT-RICH DIET THAT EMPHASIZES:

Carotenoids: a phytonutrient found in orange and dark leafy vegetables like carrots, sweet potatoes, kale, and collard greens.

Antioxidants: compounds found in brightly colored fruits and vegetables, especially berries, watercress, dark chocolate, pecans, artichoke, and cilantro.

Pro-tip: an easy way to increase antioxidants in your diet is with No. 7 Systemic Booster powder by Therapeutic Foods. Just add half a teaspoon to your morning shake!

Healthy fats: the building blocks of cell membranes. Healthy fats are found in avocado, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, extra virgin olive oil, pasture raised eggs, and wild caught omega-3 rich fish like wild salmon and sardines.

Green tea: full of free radical-fighting catechins which can reduce skin damage and prevent wrinkle formation. These powerful catechins have also been shown to promote recovery of dying skin cells and boost production of healthy new cells. We love this brand: Luv Tea


- DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS THAT CAN HELP IMPROVE YOUR SKIN -

NO. 1 DAILY COLLAGEN

The amino acids in Daily Collagen are some of the most important nutrients for skin health. Our bodies naturally produce collagen, but once we hit age 25, our production declines. Collagen supplements can help preserve our skin’s elasticity.*

Daily Collagen

NO. 2 BCAA'S

Branched-chain amino acids (BCAA's) are known for their role in muscle recovery, but they also help to nourish skin, hair, and nails from within. They’ve been found to help to stimulate collagen production especially when combined with glutamine, and their anti-inflammatory properties support the skin’s natural wound healing process, making them essential for anyone struggling with skin issues.*

BCAAs

NO. 3 HAIR & NAIL BENEFIT

Hair & Nail Benefit provides high-quality, concentrated doses of choline, silicon, and biotin to naturally nourish your body’s beauty proteins. This blend supports collagen production, which we know reduces fine lines and wrinkles.*

Hair & Nail Benefit

NO. 4 BUFFERED VITAMIN C

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient for connective tissue, including collagen, making it a fundamental tool to help keep your skin glowing, healthy and youthful.*

Buffered Vitamin C

What we eat and how we take care of ourselves has a direct impact on our complexion. Are you ready to get glowing in 2019? Within a few weeks of minimizing glow dimmers and focusing on glow-getters, you’ll begin to look and feel your best.
