Look after yourself from the inside to the out
We provide a range of products and services here at Burbage Aesthetics to give you the skin you have always dreamed off. However in between appointments there's no reason why you can't continue the work to help your skin glow from the inside out!
Why not use September - Our National Organic Month to be the start of your new routine. Look after yourself and you will reap the benefits in more ways than one.
Below are a few examples of which organic foods are good for your skin and health.
'Organic food is the product of a farming system which avoids the use of man-made fertilisers, pesticides; growth regulators and livestock feed additives. Irradiation and the use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) or products produced from or by GMOs are generally prohibited by organic legislation.*
Fruit and vegetables contain powerful antioxidants that help to protect skin from the cellular damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals, smoking, pollution and sunlight and can cause wrinkling and age spots. Eat a rainbow of colourful fruit and vegetables and aim for at least five portions a day. Betacarotene, found in carrots, sweet potatoes and pumpkin, and lutein, found in kale, papaya and spinach are potent antioxidants, important for normal skin cell development and healthy skin tone.
Make sure you get enough omega-3 and omega-6 fats. These are essential fatty acids which mean they cannot be made in the body and must be obtained through the diet. You will find omega-3s in oily fish and plant sources such as linseed and their oil, chia seeds, walnuts and rapeseed oil. Omega-3 fats encourage the body to produce anti-inflammatory compounds, which can help skin, particularly inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats – the types found in avocados, oily fish, nuts and seeds – provide essential fatty acids which act as a natural moisturiser for your skin, keeping it supple and improving elasticity. These fats also come packaged with a healthy dose of vitamin E (a vitamin many of us lack), which will help protect against free radical damage.
We have only one body to live in and we put so much love and effort into looking after those around us and keeping them healthy that sometimes we end up on the bottom of the list.
By putting our own health last ,we inevitably won't be able to help everyone else, so take the time to keep on top of your health from the inside out.
We can work our magic in our appointments and give you the lotions and potions to make you shine but until you invest the time and love in yourself the full picture won't be complete!
Happy Organic Month everyone!
