Improve Your Skin & Lose 7 Pounds Easily

February 7th, 2011

I will tell you can improve your skin and lose 7 pounds easily all you need to do is read on. Are you battling to improve your skin’s texture, elasticity and brightness? Even if you did not answer yes to the question you can still improve upon perfect skin by doing two things- making changes to the way you eat and tweaking your skincare routine.

And any skincare routine includes regular facials as they have the most immediate and effective change upon your skin when expertly done.

Changing your diet can significantly boost the results of your skincare almost overnight. Here are a few basic things to avoid and just as important, what to eat.

Change Your Skin Internally

Proper nourishment of your skin is a contributing factor to either less than ideal skin or building it to your definition of perfect skin. Since many experts agree that diet and digestion have an effect on your skin’s behavior I have come up with some things you should eliminate or avoid immediately.

Limit dairy as milk and cheese are full of hormones and antibiotics that can cause mucus to grow in the digestive tract, causing breakouts.

Some better choices are aged cheeses, goat’s and sheep’s milk as they are thought to produce less mucus than cow’s milk and soft cheese.

A drink we should cut back on, not so easy for some of us, is coffee. The caffeine found in coffee causes cellular inflammation and dehydration.

Additionally, longevity experts believe that 50% of all aging skin is brought about by foods that cause cellular inflammation.

Furthermore, some state that substituting green or black tea for coffee in your diet will make you lose 7 to 8 pounds in 6 weeks time without changing anything else in your eating habits.

Green tea is packed with antioxidants that reverse damaged skin and in fact keep it YOUNG.

Furthermore, curbing foods that cause cellular inflammation, like starches and sugars can reverse a lot of the signs of aging, including de-puffing your skin.


Eating green leafy vegetables and fruits with every meal can provide a wide variety of antioxidants and will help you greatly in the digestion process.

An alternative to eating greens with every meal is juicing as it makes it easy for the body to absorb the needed nutrients immediately without having to go through the entire digestion process.

High quality protein needs to be incorporated as it helps build collagen, one of the most important proteins for keeping skin healthy, firm and young.

Also I recommend flax seed oil, rich in omega 3 fatty acids, an essential supplement that helps prevent inflammation and keeps skin supple and firm.

Remember, you don’t have to change everything at once. Taking a gradual approach will prevent that overwhelming feeling that we all get when we have too much on our plate and we all know that is NOT fun.

And if you feel you can take on more then do so. The point is to start at least one thing and build upon it. Working consistently on it will prevent future damage and improve your skin dramatically and in some cases the change will happen overnight.

As always I look forward to seeing you at Joanna Vargas Skin Care Sanctuary in New York City where we will continue to tweak your skincare routine on a moments notice for faster results.
