Food For Thought
Why 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, hormonal activity, can drastically affect the changing needs of our skin, leaving it lacklustre and not reaching its full glowing potential, so how do we combat this?
It’s about taking a simple, 360 well-being approach to our lives which will reveal our best skin, thinking about nutrition for the 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, walnuts…
Eating foods rich in omegas will encourage a naturally plumped, hydrated glow, and the recipes don’t have to take ages, or be expensive. We’ve been enjoying this green smoothie from our Wellbeing Expert, Yvonne Wake, helping to nourish body, mind and skin all at once!
