5 Ways To Ease Skin Inflammation For a Flawless Complexion
How It Works
Dull skin? Another breakout? A rash that just won’t go away? Inflammation is your body’s way of signaling it needs help. And, this too is true for your skin, the body’s largest organ. Follow these 5 steps to reduce skin inflammation and long-term health problems.
1. UPGRADE YOUR DIET
Foods rich in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids are naturally anti-inflammatory. They help strengthen the immune system and fight free radicals. Add vegetables and dark leafy greens, berries and citrus fruits, flaxseeds, chia seeds, walnuts and spices like turmeric to your diet.
2. ELIMINATE TOXINS
Buy organic meats and produce as much as possible to reduce pesticide exposure. It’s also important to eliminate any foods you might be sensitive to, as they can cause an immune and inflammatory response. Common allergens are corn, soy, gluten, dairy, eggs, and peanuts.
3. EXERCISE AND HYDRATE
When you engage in cardio activities, your body releases anti-inflammatory myokines and endorphins. Additionally, exercise makes you sweat—and sweat carries toxins out of the body through the skin. Try to workout for 30 minutes at least 3 times per week. Exercise also encourages water consumption, which further assists in the detoxification process and hydrates your skin.
4. MANAGE STRESS AND SLEEP
It doesn’t matter if you’re running from a bear or running late to an appointment, your body can quickly shift into fight or flight mode. When in this state, cortisol is released. Excess cortisol from excess stress can tax your body, cause fatigue, and lead to inflammation. It’s therefore essential to find ways to relax and decompress on a daily basis. Take a hot bath, go for a walk, pet a puppy, spend time in nature, or plan a getaway. Plus, be sure to prioritize sleep, so your body gets the rest it needs to repair and recover.
5. CHOOSE CLEAN, NON-TOXIC SKINCARE PRODUCTS
The toxins you put on your body are absorbed by the skin and can ultimately trigger your immune system, much like a food allergen. PLANTED IN BEAUTY is the perfect solution - organic, natural skincare that’s completely free of toxins.
