Our skin is an organ that depends on getting the right amount of protein, enzymes, minerals and vitamins from our diet in order to look its best. Not everything we eat is good. According to current research, collagen breakdown and tissue damage are accelerated by glycation, a chemical process that is caused by too much sugar, high heat cooking practices and processed fat.
In her book, 28 Days to Younger Skin, Karen Fischer, former model and nutritionist, explains how you can recover a more youthful appearance in 28 days simply by altering your diet and consuming only antioxidant foods prepared with healthy cooking practices.
28 days is the amount of time it takes for your body to produce new cells in the deeper skin layers and for them to travel to the surface of your skin — so it’s literally the beginning of a new you by Day 28. The Healthy Skin Diet (Australian edition) was awarded ‘Best Health, Nutrition or Specific Diet Book’ at the 2008 Australian Food Media Awards. Find more information at http://www.robertrose.ca
Another way to revitalize your skin is by drinking juices custom-made to nourish skin. Love Grace has recently launched a new line of juices specifically targeting the cleansing and feeding of your skin. The Beautiful Skin Cleanse Kit offers a 3-day or 5 -day regimen including cold–pressed juices with ingredients chosen to support digestive health essential to bring out beauty. Ingredients include schizandra berry, to create tone and clear the skin, aloe for healing the skin, nettle rich in silica (an essential mineral for radiant skin),raspberry– high in antioxidants– and grapefruit juice,rich in Vitamin C to repair cells.
Think of this 3-day juice cleansing as an “inside – out detox facial” that will enliven and restore your skin to its best. My skin definitely looks clearer with a real glow from within.
In order to offer you the best of both worlds, Love Grace has allied itself with a luxe 4-piece skincare set from Tay that contains only antioxidant ingredients from the purest sources to support the purging of impurities in your skin from the inside. The Sunflower & Grape Revitalizing Cleanser, Cucumber Day Moisturizer with Mango Butter, Safflower Seed Night Cream with jojoba, the Essential Oils Bar Soap in clean orange, contain no parabens, petrochemicals, sulfates, synthetic ingredients or dyes. I found this collection to be the perfect compliment during my juice-based skin cleansing and was delighted by the real, fresh scents.
