Get Healthy Skin from the Inside Out

By Dr. Susan Blum

Spring has sprung – almost – so it’s time to peel off the winter layers and give your skin a little TLC. Of course that means using different topical products but it also means treating your skin from the inside, too. At 22-square feet, it’s your largest organ and an active, living part of your body. Because it is constantly exposed to the environment, your skin can get damaged from the sun, pollution, cold and hot temperatures and wind, among other things. To help it recover and stay healthy, you need to eat lots of healthy fats and antioxidants because these nutrients feed your skin cells through the blood stream. Foods like nuts, seeds, avocados, coconut oil and flaxseed oil can hydrate dry skin while antioxidants protect it from free radical damage and aging.

Your skin is also very susceptible to inflammation, which can cause acne, redness, blotchiness and premature aging. The number one source of inflammation is your diet. For example, sugar and bad fats like dairy can increase skin’s inflammation while healthy fats like avocados and salmon and fruits and veggies in all colors of the rainbow can reduce it. Another source of inflammation is your gut so it’s important that your digestion is working well and your good bacteria are healthy, too.
