Ready to put your best face forward? Having glowing radiant skin can be possible, at any age! There are many factors that might be contributing to your skin concerns. If you experience facial acne, uneven skin tone, acne scars, or even rosacea there is hope! Just like any other organ in the body, the skin takes some care to be maintain health. This could include the right fuel, the repair of any damage, and preventative tips on keeping things running smoothly. Read more below on the top things you can do right now to achieve radiant skin health.

Here are our top 3 tricks for radiant skin, naturally!

1.Cut the sugar and dairy

You may have heard the concept of Food is Medicine. This is especially true even in relation to Chinese Medical theory that certain foods and specific functions/properties in the body. For example eating fried, fatty foods have hot food energetics and can lead to excess heat in the body. This is the same concept for sugar, like in processed foods and sweets. That sugar creates inflammation which is heat. This heat can lead to acne and other skin breakouts. Also, in numerous studies link dairy consumption to acne. Therefore, if you are looking to achieve glowing radiant skin, cut the sugar and dairy to use food as medicine. Add-in a whole foods paleo-type diet to achieve optimal anti-inflammatory lifestyle.

2. Sweat does the skin good

There are so many benefits of regular sauna use. I’m talking about either the dry sauna or infared sauna, used at least 3-4x week for 15-30 minutes. Sweating and benefits of detox does wonders for skin. Also, contrary to belief, the dry heat does not dry out the skin. Studies show that not only can regular sauna use help joint pain but also several skin concerns from eczema to psoriasis. Start with 10 minute sessions and build up to 15-30 minute sessions for maximum benefit!

3. Get acupuncture!

Ever heard that your body has the ability to heal itself? Yep, 100% true. Acupuncture aids in this process. When those tiny points are put in the body, especially for facial cosmetic acupuncture. They help stimulate natural collagen and elastin production which help to tone and strengthen the skin. Acupuncture has also been shown to even out skin tone in conditions like melasma and rosacea as well as help reduce the appearance of acne scars.
