Achieve your best skin yet with these top tips!

With the skin care industry estimated to continue ballooning over the next couple of years[1], it’s clear that achieving good skin is high up the wish-list for many. However, beyond the serums and creams, we mustn’t forget that the foundation of healthy skin starts with nourishing ourselves from within.

Across many modalities of natural medicine, there is a mutual understanding that skin is a clear indicator of our general health and wellbeing. Take traditional Chinese medicine for example – a popularly used technique called face-mapping is based on the belief that everything on the outside is a direct reflection of what is going on the inside. When our internal body is unhappy, it may decide to use our skin as a canvas to paint us a sign that it needs special care and attention.

How can you tell if your skin needs extra support? Generally, the skin can appear dull, dry, inflamed, oily and itchy, which may manifest as typical skin complaints such as:

  • Pimples and acne
  • Boils
  • Eczema

Having good skin is foundational for our self-esteem and happiness, so nourishing it is paramount. Upgrade your skin care routine with these holistic, science-supported strategies to help you activate the glow from within to achieve your best skin!

Dial down stress

When our skin is in poor shape, it can often cause us a lot of grief and stress. But what about in reverse? New research confirms that the link between the skin and mind is bidirectional! One study discovered that an increase in stress severity strongly correlated with an increase in acne severity[2].

Optimise your diet

Choose foods that placate, not aggravate the skin. A wealth of evidence suggests that a diet high in refined carbohydrates and sugar can have an acne-inducing effect[3]. This is due to their high glycemic index or in other words, rapid blood sugar spiking effect, which has shown to elevate inflammation and sebum production[4]. Alternatively, get inspired by the wholefood-rich Mediterranean diet. With a focus on non-processed foods, the glycemic index naturally lowers, thus helping to stabilise oil production in the skin. Besides that, you will also widen your access to a plethora of skin-loving nutrients like zinc, vitamin A and omega-3s.

Cleanse with herbs

In some cases, skin issues may arise as a result of the poor clearance of waste and toxins in the body. Herbs of Gold Clear Skin contains Burdock, a powerful blood cleansing herb traditionally used Western herbal medicine to support waste elimination via the skin and relieve symptoms of acne, boils and mild eczema. Additionally, it combines antioxidant vitamin A and zinc to support wound healing, nutrients critical for proper skin barrier repair after a breakout or tear in the skin due to scratching.
