3. Hormone Balance. Proper hormone balance is a major factor in determining the health of our skin. There are various hormonal conditions that set the stage for chronic acne, eczema, dry skin, hair loss and wrinkles.
Some hormones are anti-aging, protective against inflammation and oxidation, while others contribute to disease. At a basic level, when our hormones are not optimally balanced, inflammation can become chronic, which suppresses immune function and leads to disease and accelerated aging.
If your goal is to be radiantly healthy, then your hormonal balance must be on the top of your list!
4. Supplement. The amount of antioxidants and vitamins we need to get from our diet is hard to reach daily and if your able to do so I bow to you! I like to know I'm meeting my requirements every day, so I make sure to supplement.
My top supplement for skin is collagen!
Collagen is an extremely important fibrous protein that is found in connective tissue – it's in our bones, our joints and is also a major component of our skin. When we lose collagen our skin wrinkles, our joints become less stable and our tendons and ligaments become more prone to injury.
Knowing this... if I was able to bring one thing on a trip I would always pick my collagen! It also keeps the nails strong which was my biggest telltale as I always had brittle nails growing up.
