"Health is adding a level of intention to every area of your life"
- Miranda Anderson
Eat Healthy Fats – every cell of our body is made up a outer lipid, or fat layer. Therefore, the types of fats we eat determine to health of our cells, which includes our skin cells. Healthy fats also supports a healthy inflammatory response which shows up as nourished glowing skin.
Prioritize Sleep – lack of sleep increases our stress which in turn messes with our cortisol levels. This increase in stress, and therefore cortisol, not only directly impacts the appearance of our skin, but also influences other hormones which can affect the overall health of our skin.
Hydrate (water and electrolytes) – studies have shown that adequate hydration directly impacts the appearance, elasticity, extensibility, dryness, and roughness of the skin. 1 However, it’s important to note that hydration doesn’t just mean guzzling liters of water. Hydration needs fluctuate with each individual and must take into account important electrolytes like sodium, magnesium & potassium.
