The Secrets of Your Skin


Everyone checks themselves in the mirror a few times a day. Some notice blemishes here and there or another dreaded breakout. These could be indicators of other issues that should not be taken for granted. You have to know what your skin is telling you and what you can do to take care of it.

Know Your Allergies

Having hives, rashes or eczema might be because of an allergic reaction to food but that doesn’t mean you should stop yourself from trying out different foods. Our bodies also need nutrients that we get from a variety of sources. Get the Food Detective Blood Test from Oo La La Clinic or Surfers Health Medical Centre. You’d know what you must avoid and not have that emergency trip to the hospital.

Be Hydrated and Get the Essential Fatty Acids

Drinking enough water allows the body to absorb nutrients properly and keeps toxins and cell waste out. Make it a habit to drink at least 2.5 litres of water per day and make it 3.5 litres when you exercise to replace what you lost after sweating.

According to nutrition experts, the intake of essential fatty acids like Omega-3, 6, 7 and 9 can give someone a nourished and youthful skin that makes fine lines less visible. In addition, it relieves those with dermatitis or psoriasis as it reduces inflammation.

Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalance

If you notice breakouts along your jawline and if it is happening too often, maybe visiting a doctor wouldn’t be such a bad idea. It could be that you have a hormonal imbalance and having it treated right away would be much better as it could also affect your mood and give you problems with digestion.


We’ve all got bad days when the pressure gets to us. We cave in, eat and drink a little too much and feel a bit guilty afterwards. But it’s not something that can’t be fixed. It’s important to exercise and sweat out those toxins, or visit a sauna. Another good thing to include in that regimen is having a detoxification program at least twice a year. It does wonders to the body and has noticeable effects on the skin too.

What Stress and Sleeplessness Does To You

Stress can be likened to a stealth attack in your body. You’d be surprised to see you’ve put on weight and have acne again no matter how many times you’ve gotten a facial. It also seems like your skin lost its glow.

Nip problems in the bud and get the remedy you need when you feel like things are too unbearable. Start by establishing a bedtime and sticking to it. That costs you nothing and you’d find that mornings are more pleasant when you’ve had enough rest. Be more watchful and get the makeup that’s right for your skin. Lastly, there might be some nutrients you don’t get enough of, ask your doctor about it on your next visit.
