With the skin being the largest organ in the body it only makes sense that if you are not eating a healthy diet your skin will send you the message.
With the start of a new year in full swing paying more attention to what you eat and detoxifying the body will not only pay off for your digestion, energy levels and overall health it will also payoff in your complexion.
If you are experiencing redness, sensitivity in the cheek areas, breakouts in the forehead region it may be time to do a detox.
Now I am not talking about going on a fast or drinking only juice, or popping all kinds of nasty tasting supplements,( I LOVE food and I could not survive this practice!.)
I am talking about eating REAL food! Simple as that!
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above
Limiting, cutting back or avoiding all together for a minimum of 7-10 days the following from your diet, will show radiant changes in your complexion
What to avoid
What to include
