8 THINGS TO CHANGE IN YOUR DIET FOR BETTER SKIN

Spring is approaching and we all want to look better in the spring/summer months. That’s why we go on a cleaner diet, we increase the times we hit the gym… But who doesn’t want to improve their skin as well?

I’m sure that if everyone knew that could get clear and glowy skin by only a matter of a couple diet changes we all would do it. So let’s talk skin enhancing hacks!

1. Start your day with lemon water, not coffee.

Like we said a million times in this blog already, lemon water is amazing for your health but especially for your skin: If you want healthy and radiant looking skin, increasing your vitamin C intake is crucial and lemon water will do the trick, in fact, a cup of fresh lemon juice provides you a 187% of your daily vitamin C serving!. It’s antioxidants fight damage caused by free radicals, keeping your skin fresh and clear. While getting plenty of vitamin C the body will produce more collagen, which is essential for our skin.

2. Make half of your plate fresh or steamed vegetables.

Fruits and vegetables are full of antioxidants and vitamins (like vitamins A, B, C, and E) that contribute to skin health and other protective tissues that cover the surfaces of your body. They also help protect your skin from free radicals and sun damage, which keeps the skin looking younger and more radiant. Plus they are high in fiber, which helps cleanse your body by removing harmful toxins. When these toxins are removed, your skin becomes less prone to acne breakouts.

3. Say bye to milk and cheese.

This can be one of the most effective products to remove from your diet to get clearer skin in a couple of weeks. Milk contains IGF-1, which is amazing for baby cows but not for humans. It’s a growth hormone that causes inflammation in humans, which can eventually lead to acne. Dairy it also causes your skin to produce excess sebum that will cause clogged pores plus dairy also glues together dead skin cells inside your pores so it’ll be harder for you to get rid of them (they can’t exit your skin naturally). Milk and dairy products cause an insulin spike in humans that will provoke the liver to produce even more IGF-1, which leads to more acne.

4. Eat more seeds and nuts.

Seeds and nuts will provide you with healthy fats, vitamin E and selenium, which all contribute to healthier skin. Studies suggest that a selenium-rich diet can help to protect against skin cancer, sun damage and age spots. Vitamin E protects skin from oxidative (cell) damage and supports healthy skin growth.

5. Eat less meat and more fatty fish.

Fish oil is wonderful for your heart and health but especially for your skin. It reduces acne and wards off wrinkles. Fatty acids in fish oil will also supply hydration to your skin for the inside and help with inflammation.

6. Cut out sugar and pastries and eat more berries and lemons.

In a nutshell, it breaks down collagen (the collagen production we worked so hard for increasing our vitamin C levels!) and will make your skin look plump, youthful, and lifted. Also, “Sugar can weaken the immune system, and a suppressed immune system is bad at fighting off bacteria.” Bacteria clogged in pores creates pimples. It also creates more testosterone. “Testosterone makes pores larger, skin is oilier, it turns your beautiful female skin into ruddy football player skin,” Dr. Lancer says.

7. Replace refined grains with whole grains.

Whole grains are full of Vitamin E and Zinc which contributes to healthy and glowing skin. It’s also high in selenium, a mineral that acts as a natural anti-aging and will also improve skin elasticity.

8. Cut sodas and increase your water intake.

Cutting soda is literally cutting sugar. We all know how bad sugar is for us! But increasing your water intake, force yourself to drink two glasses of water first thing in the morning to hydrate from the overnight dehydration (8 hours without drinking any water) and always week a water bottle with you and sip through the day. Drinking all your water at once won’t do the trick.

Water will decrease the oil concentration of your skin which will reduce skin inflammation and breakouts. Plus a hydrated skin is less prone to premature wrinkles and provides elasticity.

 

We encourage you to try these for a couple of months and let us know if you’ve noticed any difference!

Will you try any of these? Are you already including some of these tips in your diet? is there something that works for you that we haven’t mentioned? Let us know in the comments!

 

Happy Tuesday!

  20. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God.

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4). For a time he will bring about a false peace, but “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15)…then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it. Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark. Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever…God bless!

    “EITHER HUMAN INTELLIGENCE ULTIMATELY OWES ITS ORIGIN TO MINDLESS MATTER OR THERE IS A CREATOR…” – JOHN LENNOX

    We all know God exists. Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all. Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No. So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does. Who is capable of knowing everything? God. So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God.

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature. And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist.

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero. What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing. Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes. Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major “holy” books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things. Watch a potential life-changing video on the front page of http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data. He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists.

    Jesus fulfilled more than 300 Messianic prophecies concerning His birth place, details of His life, His mission, His nature, His death, and His resurrection. He came to pay a debt that we could not, to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life. Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself. All the law hang on these commands. We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom. If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin. The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law. If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish. We must walk in the Spirit, producing fruits of love and forgiveness, so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like. Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26). If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2). Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations. It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our hearts desire that they become sin (James 1:12-15). When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God. For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14).

    The oldest religion in the world is holiness (James 1:27). What religion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what religion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow any religion or denomination but to deny ourselves, take up our cross daily, and follow Him (Luke 9:23). There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray. This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment. Unlike religion, holiness cannot be created. It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit. Jesus is more than a religion; He is about having a personal relationship with the Father. Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments. Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!
