All Natural Clear Skin Hacks

"The more detoxified your body is the more beautiful it will become"

When ever my skin starts acting up, there are usually a whole host of other things that are going wrong too. The body expels waste through your digestive track but when it's clogged your body becomes over loaded with toxins. Then your other eliminating organs your kidneys, lungs liver and skin have to work over time. So when I have a breakout I know that there is a build up of toxins in my system. In order to get rid of the toxins that are causing my breakouts, I have to boost my circulation and improve my digestion.

Circulation is important because it carries vital nutrients throughout your body. If you think of a big tree and the apples that are on the branches, how can the apples grow to be juicy and plump with out the water from the roots? It can't, and proper circulation ensures that the branches and the apples at the end of them get the nutrients that they need. Think of dry brushing as a way to stimulate the branches or your lymphatic system, to circulate nutrients and remove toxins. 

Your skin is an indicator of your overall health, it can tell you if your actually eliminating toxins or just storing them in your body. Here are some nutrients that you can add to your diet to improve circulation and digestion. I use the HUM Nutrtion Raw Superfood Powder because it contains all of the nutrients listed below in one single scoop.  

Alkalizing Greens

Much of your beauty is determined on a cellular level. When your body is more alkaline, there is an increased flow of oxygen and nutrients to your cell walls. If your diet is mainly acid forming than it diminishes the oxygen supply to your cells and your left with dry cracked itchy skin and premature aging. Adding kale, spinach or Green superfoods like barley grass, wheat grass, chlorella and spirulina can help keep your blood and body more alkaline. 

Probioitics

Probiotics help to balance the bacteria in your gut and promote better digestion. They help to move food through your digestive track. Also they replace the bacteria in your gut with healthy bacteria . The most common groups include Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium and the Raw Super Food contains both of these. Yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut are other forms of probiotics. 

Adaptogens

Chronic stress can wreak havoc on the body. Adaptogens help balance, restore and protect the body to help you respond to stress more effectively. Your body starts secreting cortisol and is constantly in the fight or flight mechanism. During this state your digestion is slowed and your blood pressure is elevated and chronic inflammation can occur. Inflamation is the root cause of acne due to the buildup of sebum or oil that occurs. Turmeric is an amazing adaptogenic herb that is so versatile to cook with. I use it in my breakfast scrambles, but you can make a latte or even a face mask with it. The Raw Beauty supplement also contains Licorice Root Moringa, Ashwaganda, Rhodia which help to boost your immune system and lower cortisol levels.
