Whilst herbal prescriptions from your Practitioner may support eliminatory function, there are some simple dietary and lifestyle changes you can implement, to help you on your way to better skin.
Adequate intake of plant-based fibre and water is essential for the channels of elimination to function properly. Enjoy a minimum of three cups of fresh vegetables daily: Choose from a variety of vegetables and aim to have a rainbow of colours on your dinner plate. Enjoy a minimum of two pieces or one cup of fresh fruit daily: Berries are an excellent choice as they are rich in antioxidants. Limit starchy carbohydrates to two small serves daily: aim for only 1 to 2 serves of bread, rice, pasta, cereal or potatoes.
Drink a minimum of eight glasses of pure water daily. To add flavour, opt for natural flavourings such as fresh lemon, lime and mint in water instead of soft drinks and cordials. Be active – exercise helps increase blood flow to the skin, and encourages the removal of toxins through sweat; so make daily exercise a part of your skin health program today!
Clear Your Body for Clear Skin
Brush your skin – dry skin brushing prior to your morning shower is a simple technique to stimulate lymphatic circulation ,helping your body to clear the build up of waste products that can aggravate skin conditions.
Uncomfortable skin conditions such as acne, dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis are more than skin deep. Many skin conditions can be fuelled by poorly functioning channels of elimination and accumulation of waste within the body. Fortunately, with the help of specific herbal medicines, dietary changes and lifestyle modifications, you can naturally support internal processes to improve your external appearance. I can tailor these strategies to suit your individual needs, to help promote radiant skin from the inside-out. See my post on Natural Treatments for Skin Conditions for natural ways to help ease irritating skin conditions.
