Do You Eat The Same Food Everyday? It Can Lead To Troubled Skin
October 21st, 2011
There is a Chinese proverb that says: “You can abuse your body up to age 35. After that it abuses you.” We all have witnessed some young person’s eating habits with little regard for healthy meals. The side effects are apparently nothing.
However, upon inspection we find, lack of energy, greasy skin, stress, being excessively hungry and so on.
This is of course due to insufficient amounts of protein, fruits and vegetables that give the body, the proper building blocks to repair, heal and maintain itself.
The obvious signs of poor nutrition, as mentioned above, are but mere shadows of what they will become once the person is past the mid 30s.
A person with a well rounded diet is less stress. Less stress leads to better health and mental acuteness and of course better skin.
The Mono Diet
Your skin can be used as a very accurate gauge in determining your health. It’s simple, the more nutritious your diet the better your skin.
Once food is absorbed by the digestive tract the nutrients are delivered first to the vital organs of the body. The skin, not being a vital organ, although the largest, gets it’s nutrients last.
This is why your skin shows signs of stress and damage first before any other part of the body.
This of course leads to dull skin, breakouts, uneven tone and dehydrated skin. These are only a few examples of course.
By eliminating certain foods with high sugar content and low nutritional value you can begin towards a more healthy body and skin that is radiant, firm and hydrated.
Oily skin can be a symptom of fried foods and as a result larger pores. Eliminate or restrict fried foods and you can begin to see a dramatic change in your skin within weeks.
What is a mono diet? The word “mono” in this case means “alone” and therefore the mono diet would be the habit, desire or convenience of eating one particular food to the exclusion of others.
Eating one type of food on occasion may not be harmful but for an extended period of time can affect your health.
The reason of course is because it can ultimately create a vitamin and mineral deficiency in your body.
When your body begins to get the needed nutrients it needs you’ll began to feel a big difference and your skin will respond faster to a well crafted skincare routine.
The end result will be younger, firmer skin, with a natural and healthy glow.
Lastly, aside from the poor nutritional value of unhealthy foods, they tend to block the digestion system causing havoc in every other part of the body.
This can make it seem like you have certain diseases when all you need to do is change your diet.
Eating responsibly can make your skin glow and flanking it with an adequate skincare routine can give you flawless skin. And as always I look forward to seeing you at the salon so make your appointments NOW at 212.949.2350.
