Naturally Healthy Skin

skin health Sep 23, 2014

I am asked frequently how one can better support skin health. Skin tends to age faster in hot, dry, sunny Colorado, as well as increase your risk of developing skin cancer. While there are a myriad of topical creams, sunscreens and toners out there, and I recommend that you use a good one such as Dr. Haushka’s, I am going to shed light on nutritional support for your skin. The first thing I recommend is that everyone take a high quality fish oil. Fish oils contain high levels of DHA and EPA which promote skin as well as brain health.I recommend a product with at least 2000 i.u. of omega 3 activity pre daily dose. It is important to use a high quality fish oil that has been properly purified to eliminate any possible heavy metal or toxin contamination. Feel free to call me or email me for any recommendations. For vegans and vegetarians who don’t like to use any animal products, flax seed oil can be a good substitute, though it won’t help brain function the way fish oils do. Omega 3 oils keep your skin smooth and supple and will prevent wrinkles as it alleviates skin dryness. Secondly, bowel function must be optimal. As I said earlier, the skin is an eliminative organ so if the bowel is not functioning properly , toxins will then be eliminated through your skin, thus causing acne and many other skin inflammatory conditions. Probiotics can help balance intestinal flora and improve digestion, as well as support your immune system as its first line of defense!. Again you may contact me for recommendations. Sometimes further testing is required as in identification of food allergens or testing for any other imbalance in the bowel flora. Thirdly, a good antioxidant and multivitamin can help stave off free radical damage to the skin from exposure to UV rays, pollution, and other toxins in our environment. Have a wonderful summer and please take great care of your skin!
