My healthy lifestyle started because of my skin issues. If it wasn’t for the tough adult acne, I probably wouldn’t be blogging, I wouldn’t be as conscious of that I put in and on my body and that would make me sad!
Just yesterday as I was talking to a gorgeous new team member on Team I Heart Wellness and we were sharing our natural skin clearing secrets and what we apply on our skin for great glowing results and epic pimple healing (thank god) I started to think how much healthier my skin is since I’ve made simple shifts in my life!
* Let me just say, if you have troubled skin, meet Frankincense Essential Oil. He’s your new BFF!
So, thank you acne for the lessons, but I’m happy you’re gone now ; )
If you’re ready for glowing, healthy skin you absolutely are on the right track by reading this post!
Acne isn’t just diet related. I know it in my soul that healthy skin is a cocktail of eating right, nourishing your self with self-care (aka dropping the stress, breathing deeply, stopping the negative habits, soothing, etc!), honouring yourself and loving yourself and using freaking amazing NATURAL products on your skin!
But diet does play a large role in your skin since what you put in your body, reflects back out. This is why drinking boatloads of water is key for glowing skin and eating a lot of vegetables is SO nourishing for your skin (but not all vegetables…I’m doing a blog post on this asap!) and good healthy fats like you find in the fatty tea bevy!
Collagen is golden for your skin health and keeping your skin young and firm.
Recently I have been trying many different collagen packed foods, like Boned Broth (the most delicious bone broth!) and this new Bone Broth Collagen Powder from Dr.Axe.com
I’ve been using this Bone Broth Collagen from Dr.Axe in my Healthy Skin Smoothie as the protein and honestly, it still weirds me out thinking this is powdered bone broth.
My verdict on this bone broth collagen…
It’s funky. It has a strange taste, which I can’t quite describe because it’s a tad on the caramel-y side, but also chicken.
I can’t drink it straight. My mind plays funky tricks on me and I start to picture that it’s powdered bone broth and I can’t…I just can’t.
BUT, I can add it into smoothies without tasting a dang thing and it’s SO good for my skin and my hair!!
I do notice a different in the glow of my skin and it keeps my skin clear.
My hair…oh my hair.
I’m on hot new vitamins and supplements which are to.die.for, but those mixed with this, I have new hairs growing!!!
So – get collagen into your life if you need a health boost!
