Three Clear Skin Foods You Should be Eating in 2013

When you feel healthy on the inside your skin reflects it on the outside! It can also be said that what you put into your body can affect how you look on the outside, so it’s very important to feed your body well! All the acne medicine in the world may not solve blemish problems unless you’re working on your diet as well.

We often focus on what we shouldn’t be eating to prevent blemishes… but it’s what we’re not eating that could be the key to clear skin. If you’re lacking essentials like zinc, carotenoids, and fiber you could be depriving your body of what it needs to keep your skin clear!

Try these foods high in zinc: pumpkin seeds, almonds, chickpeas, oysters, beef and baked beans. Zinc reduces inflammation, shrinking bumps while it slows sebum production. This combo reduces oily shine and prevents clogged pores. While vitamins and supplements are a good option to get in your daily zinc requirements, nothing beats nutrition from its natural source. Toss back a handful of almonds or pumpkin seeds daily to see gradual improvements in your skin.

Carotenoids which turn into vitamin A in your body, attack blemishes in three ways; they reduce inflammation, encourage cell turnover and strengthen your skins immunities to bacteria. Munch on mangos, cantaloupe, carrots, spinach and sweet potatoes to soak up the benefits of carotenoids and see improvements. The key is to stick with fresh varieties of these foods to boost the benefits they give your skin.

Finally, add fiber! Switch out white for wheat, and cut processed, unhealthy carbs. Refined carbohydrates trigger he body to respond by producing more insulin which, in turn triggers hormone changes in your body which increase oil production and cell multiplication. This combo, in short can lead to clogged pores and unsightly blemishes. By consuming fewer processed grains and more unrefined carbs your body takes more time to digest and absorb the calories keeping blood sugar steady preventing a whole slew of skin problems. Stick to brown rice and whole grain bread products; it also doesn’t hurt to add a fiber supplement to your daily routine.

To jump start your routine to clear skin, consider a Murad facial with us, and with these simple changes in your diet you could glow for 2013! For more information, visit http://www.massageenvy.com.

Relieve Tired Eyes

Finally, you have a great night’s sleep and feel relaxed and rejuvenated. You start your morning routine, look in the mirror and notice that those annoying dark circles are still there. We know how frustrating this can be. But it’s important to remember that the skin around your eyes is very delicate. One night of restful sleep may not do the trick. So, we called upon the skincare experts at Murad® to learn more about dark circles and how to prevent them.

The skin around the eyes is fragile, and readily shows the signs of age, fatigue and stress. The tissue is thinner, water evaporation is rapid and the collagen and elastin fibers are less numerous. In addition, the eye area has few (if any) oil-producing glands, so it requires intense hydration that my not be appropriate for the rest of your face.

Although some dark circles are genetic, you can reduce their appearance by getting plenty of sleep and keeping your body hydrated by eating lots of raw fruits and vegetables on daily basis.

You can also relieve tired eyes with products that contain wild yam and soybean to increase firmness, caffeine and light refractors to minimize puffiness and chamomile extract to calm and soothe.

Most importantly, take time to relax! Sleep and relaxation are key to keeping your eyes looking refreshed and youthful. Try taking a hot bath before bed and make sure to shut off all distractions (television, Smartphone and computers) an hour before you turn in for the night.

At all Massage Envy Spa clinics, we offer four different Murad® Healthy Skin facials, as well as an array of Murad® skincare products. To determine what treatment is best for your skin, visit http://www.massageenvy.com/facials.
