Great Skin from Within
Skin treatments and advanced products can go a long way in keeping you feeling refreshed and beautiful, but what you put into your body is just as important as how you treat your skin. Making an effort to maintain a pattern of healthy dieting and exercising will keep your skin looking radiant and keep you feeling young.
At Angell Medical Spa, we offer a wide variety of skin care treatments to rejuvenate your complexion, alongside professional skin care consultations to promote a comprehensive approach to healthier and younger-looking skin.
A proper skin care routine can go a long way toward keeping your skin acne free, but a healthy diet can give your body the extra boost it needs to fight pore-clogging cells. Studies have shown that high blood sugar correlates with an increase in acne, so consider cutting back on foods high in sugar and switching out white bread in favor of whole grain options.
It’s no secret that eating plenty of fruits and vegetables is the recommendation of doctors everywhere, but, in addition to their numerous health benefits, they also play a part in keeping skin clear. Fresh produce that is high in antioxidants and vitamins, and detox foods like carrots, avocados and tomatoes, can keep your skin looking fresh and invigorated while ensuring you feel your best.
Combating Premature Aging
While developing wrinkles is an inevitable part of life, no one should have to worry about looking older than they feel. A well-rounded diet can keep you looking and feeling healthy, effectively fighting any early signs of aging. Keeping unnatural, processed foods out of your body while working to incorporate healthy foods with natural fats into your diet, like fresh salmon, olive oil and dark chocolate, will supply your body with the nutrients it needs to produce wrinkle-free skin.
Collagen plays a huge role in keeping skin supportive and hydrated and is directly affected by the body’s supply of nutrients. Foods like fresh oranges, bell peppers and spinach will help your body produce the collagen it needs to keep skin looking young. If you are worried that your daily vitamin intake is not sufficient, adding a simple adult multivitamin to your diet will ensure you have all of your bases covered.
Your body needs proper hydration to not only function well but also keep you looking your best. As the body ages, its volume of hyaluronic acid (HA) present in the skin gradually decreases. HA is a naturally-occurring sugar molecule that keeps skin elastic and hydrated. Wrinkles form as a result of skin aging and losing its hydration, so keeping your body well-hydrated can translate into visible results in your complexion. Shoot for about 60 ounces of water per day, or around eight glasses full. Foods like watermelon, cucumber and celery are also great sources of water and will give your body an added boost of hydration.
Keeping your skin healthy is all about treating it right.
