“After working with my esthetician, I began to understand that skin health goes far beyond how well you clean your skin every day or what you put on it topically. I realized the importance of a holistic skincare approach. To help with my breakouts, I started by changing my diet. I tried to incorporate more greens and cut out dairy. This made such a difference. To be honest, I have a major sweet tooth and, as mentioned above, I love ice cream. Ice cream has both sugar and dairy, which can be really hard for your body to digest. Once I cut this out of my diet for a while and added more greens, my skin began to clear up. I also tried getting more sleep and managing stress levels through meditation and yoga. Yoga has been a lifesaver! It has really helped with relaxation, sleep, and balance between work and social life. And now I can stand on my head. What’s not to love?” – Olivia Culpo Miss Universe 2012
You’ve heard it from the Miss Universe herself, and countless others nowadays. It all starts with what we are putting into our bodies. We are what we eat, and our skin reflects that most of the time. I don’t know about you, but the second I have a bit too much sugar, dairy or any type of food I know may not be the best for me, I am breaking out or more oily than usual. The minute I do not stay hydrated, my skin does not look healthy anymore. But you might say, “dark chocolate is good for your heart”, however a self-awareness of even an occasional indulgence may prevent you from waking up the next day with unhappy skin.
