Avoid Low-Fat

Avoid Low-Fat If You Want Great Skin

What you put in your mouth has a significant effect on your skin, and while you think that a low-fat diet may be good for you, it can have disastrous consequences on your skin. This is because low-fat diets tend to include a lot of sugar and sweeteners. 

While sweet and delicious, sugar is terrible for the skin and can cause inflammation that leads to premature ageing, including fine lines and wrinkles. A much better option is to follow a diet full of vegetables and healthy fats while limiting carbohydrates as these are turned into sugar by the body.

Rejuvenate Your Skin from the Inside

A burst of sugar causes a sudden inflammation within the body, and as a result, it can have a range of unpleasant side-effects. Have you ever noticed yourself getting warm and blotchy after eating too many carbs or chocolate? That’s because your blood sugar level has spiked, and your body is working in overload to try and process the sugar. 

This is why we 100% recommend replacing sugary foods with skin-boosting fatty acids that are good for you – and not just your skin. Replacing low-fat alternatives with berries, coconut oil, olive oil, avocado, seeds, nuts and all-important fish (great for Omega-3), can turn your tired and troubled skin into a thing of the past, as well as improve the overall function of your organs. 

Embrace the Good Fats 

If you’ve been trying fad diets and struggle with problem skin, it’s time to re-evaluate what you’re putting into your body and conduct a diet overhaul. Eliminate those sugars and find healthier alternatives – you’ll be reaping the benefits in no time. 

So the next time you reach for that bar of Dairy Milk, think about the benefits that a banana could have on your skin instead…

How long do you have to wait in between microdermabrasion treatments?

Skin concerns like pigmentation, acne, scarring, and uneven skin tone all need a consistent and regular treatment plan to achieve the best results. Read on to find out why this 7-10 day window is important.
