With summer in full force, clear skin is what we all desire. Poor diet and a hectic lifestyle can, unfortunately, cause our bodies to react with inflammatory conditions on our skin like psoriasis, acne, eczema and rashes (i.e. dermatitis). But, there are steps we can all take to help clear up our skin.
Tracy's Tip: 5 Steps to Clear Skin
Apple Cider Vinegar: Take 1 tablespoon ACV in a cup of water in the morning to clean out the system, soak in 1/2 cup ACV hot bath to detox skin, or even apply 1/2 teaspoon ACV with some water to a cotton ball and apply to skin concern spots.
Happy Gut: The quality of our digestive system is shown by the quality of our skin. Common food culprits that cause skin issues are sugar, gluten, and dairy.
Clean and moisturize daily: The is particularly important for your face. Cleaning the face before bed can help slow down the aging process. I prefer a chemical-free skincare line so that you are not taking in hormone disruptors. I love Arbonne skincare.
Sweat it out: Even just a daily mini-sweat can help clean out the pores and allow the skin to stay clean and glowing.
Essential oils: I love mists to help the skin with many concerns, or just apply a drop to the spot. Great oils to have on hand are melaleuca and lavender for acne; juniper berry and thyme for psoriasis, eczema, and rashes; frankincense and geranium for dry skin and anti-aging.
Now it's time to take some skin action. What step would help your skin condition the best?
