Everyone deserves to feel healthy and beautiful in their own skin. And, your skin needs nurturing and nourishing too, right? With so much questionable advice floating around on social media, it can be super confusing where to start. How can you tell what steps to take to improve your skin health? Continue reading to discover which toxins accelerate aging skin, why you should avoid elimination diets and which treatment options are ideal for skin rejuvenation.

Toxins of Life that Accelerate Aging Skin

• Alcohol

• Smoking

• Poor sleep patterns

• Poor nutrition

• Poor hydration

• The worst UVA rays in the sun, which damage DNA and accelerate the loss of elastin and collagen (the best UVA block is micronized zinc, found in the SPF 35 Sunscreen from Di Morelli Skin Care)

The Best and Worst Foods for Skin Health

People are always wondering about the best or worst foods for skin health. You probably hear a lot of talk on social media about miracle foods that will rejuvenate your skin overnight. And you may also hear about foods labelled bad or harmful or unhealthy. The truth? You cannot make or break your skin health by simply adding or removing certain foods from your diet. Be cautious about elimination diets because they can sometimes do more harm than good.

Healthline Media recently published an article on clean eating and skin health where they described the dangers of elimination diets. The biggest concern? Reportedly, elimination diets can lead to vitamin deficiencies that will negatively affect your overall wellness and your skin health too. Instead of eliminating whole categories of foods, having a healthy, balanced diet based on intuitive eating principles will go a long way to supporting your overall health. And you can always consult with a doctor or dietician if you feel that you have a genuine allergy or sensitivity to certain foods.

Treatment Options for Optimal Skin Health and Rejuvenation

Beyond taking simple steps in your everyday life, you can also explore a range of skin rejuvenating treatments. To safely rejuvenate and brighten your complexion, you could try Broadband Light (BBL) therapy. The treatment is clinically proven to correct uneven skin tone and texture. Also, it can directly combat diverse skin concerns such as sun damage, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, or facial veins.

Though it may sound intense at first, microneedling is another safe and effective treatment to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Using controlled micro-injuries and an infusion of nutrients, microneedling triggers the natural healing and repair process to rejuvenate your skin. And people love the results. After the procedure, you will start to notice improved skin texture, softer skin and a subtle reduction of any fine lines or wrinkles.

One of our top recommendations for improved skin health is the innovative Enlighten Laser from Cutera Aesthetic Solutions.
