salt has harmful effects on the skin

We all love our popcorn, chips, crackers, samosas, murku, and ketchup – but what do all these things have in common? SALT.

According to WHO (2016), adults should consume less than 5 grams (1 teaspoons) per day. In India, an average Indian consumes 10.98 grams per day, which is 119% more than the required intake per day! 119%.

Let’s take a look at how it affects the skin:

Puffy Eyes

Consuming too much salt in any form can cause us to retain water that can cause swelling around the eyes. The skin around the eyes is very thing so your eyes tend to swell more, says Dr. Schultz.

Dry Skin

Your skin can also become dry and cracked as a result of excess consumption of sodium.

Oily Skin

Your skin could also go the opposite way and there may be an overproduction of oil due to the dehydration of the skin, leading to skin breakouts and acne.

The bottom line is: reduce your salt intake and consumption of processed foods because they often contain hidden salt. So our advice to you is: take it with a grain of salt!

Eat to look young

What to eat to look young, avoid aging

Aging is not an option, not for anyone. It is how gracefully we handle the process and how lucky we are, as the process handles us. – Cindy McDonald

We believe that you can fight aging from within by eating the right kinds of nutrients and foods. We have complied a list of 5 nutrients you should include in your daily diet.

  1. Vitamin C

Foods with vitamin C like oranges, capsicum, broccoli, pomegranates, and tomatoes, help produce collagen, which in turn makes your skin soft and supple. Oranges especially, contain 87% water, which hydrates your skin.

  1. Omega Fatty Acids

Omega fatty acids – be it -3, -6, or -9 also keeps the skin free from wrinkles. Some important sources include walnuts, salmon, flaxseeds, avocado, coconut oil, chia seeds (tulsi seeds), and berries.

  1. Amino Acids

Amino acids are found in protein sources and help repair the collagen and elasticity in the skin. Some sources of amino acids include eggs, meat, lentils, pulses, nuts, and seeds.

  1. Antioxidants

The more antioxidants, the better for your skin! Vegetables like spinach, kale, and other green, leafy vegetables contain beta-carotene and lutein, which improve skin elasticity. Additionally, blueberries provide your skin with extra protection from emotional stress and harmful sun exposure.

  1. Fermented Foods

Probiotics that are present in fermented foods put the good bacteria into the gut, which makes the skin healthier. Some fermented foods include yogurt, kimchi, kefir, dosa, and idli.

Let us know your experiences with eating these foods and comment below.

Treatment for adult acne problems

Adult acne can hit you like a train out of nowhere. Lots of people suffer from acne as adults, even if they had perfectly clear skin throughout their teenage years. Acne in younger people is easier to understand, because it is linked to hormonal changes and an excess of oil production from the sebaceous glands. Acne in adults is much more complicated because even though it comes from a hormonal imbalance, there are more sources to contend with. And the best way to treat this is to address it internally.

The stresses of life increases with age as more responsibilities pile on and our lives become more complicated. People get frustrated with this answer. Either they don’t believe this could be the cause, or they don’t know how to effectively lower their stress levels or even fit in the time to do so.

Besides stress, diet can play a big role in adult acne. Many people begin to develop more sensitivities and allergies as they age, and there is a direct correlation between acne and diet. Food allergies, even slight, trigger inflammation responses in the body, which encourage breakouts. Try getting an allergy test from your doctor to determine if you may be ingesting foods that cause an inflammation response. So eliminating these things could not only assist in clearing your acne, but also prevent a lot of other problems in your system down the road!

Adult acne needs to be cared for differently than acne in your younger years. As you age, your oil production decreases, so harsh topicals may not be the best solution for you – especially topicals that increase Inflammation and dehydrate the skin.

The main take-away with adult acne is this: the only way to fully treat acne is from the inside.  As mentioned, this doesn’t have to be done with chemicals and treatments that have side effects.  Decrease inflammation and feed your body foods and supplements that nourish. Also, cut out processed foods and sugar. Find out if you have sensitivities to gluten or to animal products such as lactose from milk. De-stress! Make a commitment and carve out the time to nourish your mind and body.  All of these things can make huge changes in your condition and in your overall life.
