How to Have Glowing Skin for The Summer

Healthy Skin from The Inside Out

How can you have healthy glowing skin so you can look and feel your best? Working from the inside out will help you achieve your goals. What you eat, drink, or put on your skin, plus lifestyle habits will all impact on how healthy your skin is. Supplements will take a little bit of time to work, but I think you will be happy you persisted. Top supplements for skin would include collagen, vitamin C, omega oils, B vitamins, and zinc.

My favourite supplements to support skin health

Cleanmarine For Women is an ideal supplement for women age 15-40 as it provides omega oils from Krill, b vitamins including B6 for the regulation of hormonal activity, vitamin B2 for normal skin, and soy isoflavones.

Cleanmarine for Men is perfect for men of all ages to support healthy glowing skin and hair health. It contains Omega oils from Krill, zinc for healthy testosterone levels and b vitamins for healthy skin and hair.

If you are vegetarian or vegan Udo’s Choice Ultimate Oil Blend is a lovely oil to take for a seed based source of Omega 3,6 and 9. You can take it straight from the spoon or add to smoothies, yoghurts, or breakfast cereal.

Collagen is important for skin health, 75% of the skin is made up of collagen and this declines as we age. We have lots of different collagen products in store. New Nordic Collagen Shot is one of our newest supplements and it's proving popular with our customers. It's a premium liquid marine collagen sachet, pre-mixed and easy to take with a delicious natural berry flavour. Collagen helps improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Supplements to help protect your skin from sun damage include beta carotene and astaxanthin. Always use alongside natural organic sunscreen like Green People.

Foods to support skin health

Top foods to include in your diet for healthy skin include water, lemon in water, beetroot juice, rooibos tea, brightly coloured fruit and veg, green leafy vegetables, avocado, oily fish, walnuts, chia, flax, sunflower and pumpkin seeds, goji berries, acai or moringa powder. Foods to support gut health which in turn will support skin health includes kimchi, natural yoghurt, kefir, and sauerkraut.

Things to avoid to keep your skin looking fabulous

Things that cause problems for your skin include: Lack of sleep, stress, dehydration, sugar, caffeine, alcohol, and processed foods. Smoking, and skin care products that could have nasty ingredients may cause toxic build up on the skin contributing to wrinkles and dull looking skin. Hormonal imbalance, constipation, and digestive problems can cause havoc on your skin. You may have to deal with one or more of these issues in order to get your glow back again.

Weleda Skin Food Ultra-Light Dry Oil

It is important to hydrate your skin from the outside in. Use products that are chemical and toxin free. Some of my favourites are Trilogy Pure Plant Body Oil, Weleda Skin Food, and Lavera All Round Body Cream, I have tried these ones over the years and they are all hydrating on the skin.

With the recent addition to our range of the Weleda Skin Food Ultra-Light Dry Oil Spray, I now have a new favourite skin hydration product. This has proven a popular request after being seen on Love Island recently. After trialling it I can understand why it has proven so popular. I love that it is sprayed onto the skin, it is light in texture and absorbs quickly without any greasy residue. It combines the lightness of a moisturising mist with rich nourishing plant oils. It can be used on the face or the body to leave radiant glow on your skin. I think you will like this product as much as I do.

Skin brushing, or body scrubs to exfoliate dead skin cells are another brilliant way to brighten your skin.

I hope your skin glows this summer.
