In a society that continues to place heavy emphasis on “anti-aging,” it may be time to rethink this because we know aging is inevitable. Rather, encompassing a philosophy that embraces healthy aging and healthy skin aging using a full spectrum of naturally inspired care, from our inner health to outer appearance and the lifestyle we choose, is becoming a more gratifying way to think and live for many.
Here’s why: Outside of genetics, overall lifestyle plays a critical role in delaying or accelerating the aging process. It is also well known that deficient diet, poor skincare and a toxic lifestyle negatively impact how well we age.
“Consumers are engaging in a more holistic approach to health, lifestyle and beauty, all with a green, clean living mindset.”
The link between wholesome, natural, organic food and beauty is more pronounced than ever, with superfoods marketed not only for health purposes but also as nourishing actives within skincare lines. This ecofriendly and non-toxic approach towards skin health and beauty is fast becoming the preferred route for many to “feel and look” their best.
Nutrition and natural health experts consider that many conditions of poor health may be brought about by one or more of the following:
Overtime, these imbalances may extend to physical symptoms (including the health and appearance of your skin). Recent clinical data has correlated certain skin conditions such as; adult acne, atopic dermatitis and photo-aging with toxin overload, poor gut health and nutrient deficiency.
To nourish the skin from within, a “clean” organic, unprocessed, non-gmo plant based diet is recommended by leading nutrition and dermatology experts. Its best to select local and organically grown produce when possible with emphasis on “superfoods” that provide the vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants that the body needs for healthy skin and efficient detoxification. High fiber foods, clean water and herbal teas can help draw out toxins through digestive and urinary pathways.

From skin and hair care, to fragrance and make up, consider what the average person applies on their skin and hair every day and you begin to understand how quickly this adds up. According to the EWG, the average person lathers, rubs and sprays 12 products on his or her body every day--and since our skin also acts like a sponge, we can absorb hundreds of chemicals we regularly expose ourselves to. While we don’t really know the magnitude of how cosmetic chemicals can affect us, some we do know are linked to ill health effects. Phthalates and parabens for example, used in skincare and fragrances have been linked as potential hormone and fertility disruptors in the body. If these chemical ingredients can penetrate and potentially impact our inner health, why should we think they are good for outer appearance too?
Support your skin’s health and lessen your exposure to potentially harmful chemicals, by choosing non-toxic, certified organic, plant-derived ingredients which are rich in phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals and are associated with an array of health benefits — protection against free radical damage, enhanced collagen production, increased circulation and cellular renewal, moisture replenishment and retention and significant improvement in the skin’s overall appearance.
Many companies offer “natural” based products but to be truly confident in the quality and purity of a product, opt for organic based products. Certified organic products are verified that they are produced from start to finish without the use of synthetic chemicals.
“Organic ingredients are those grown without artificial chemicals, fertilizers or pesticides, which is healthier for the planet and healthier for our bodies”
Combining clean eating and clean skincare enhances the skin health beyond what one regimen could do on its own, so the visible result is - Fewer fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration — and a complexion that both looks and feels rejuvenated.
