Be honest. How many products and concealers have you purchased to cover those pesky, puffy, dark circles under your eyes?
They may be a sign of lack of sleep, but it can also indicate another more common issue: dehydration.
When you are dehydrated, you lose that “glow” that we are all looking for, not only around the eyes, but on your entire face. In addition to adding in some important foods, consider drinking up! Yes, I mean drinking lots of detox water.
Cut up some citrus fruits (rind included), soak in a pitcher of ice water, and drink up. The vitamin C in the citrus will help balance levels of electrolytes and expel excess water weight while the d-limonene in the rinds acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory compound which helps the liver flush toxins from the body.
Some of my favorite combo’s are :
- grapefruit and mint
- lemon and blueberry
- apple, lemon and mint
- orange, lemon and lime
- strawberry and basil
You can’t go wrong, or make a mistake…have some fun and try different combinations!
The Importance of Collagen
Collagen is the foundation of young looking skin, but as we age, the body produces less of it. Eating the right foods is a great way to naturally boost collagen in the skin. By including a number of these foods listed here, you will soon begin to see a difference in the quality of your skin tone as well as have an improved sense of overall health!
Try adding these foods into your daily diet to achieve a beautiful healthy glow:
- Wild Salmon and tuna
- Red veggies such as tomatoes, peppers and beets
- Dark green veggies such as spinach and kale
- Blackberries, raspberries and blueberries
- Carrots, cantaloupe and sweet potato
- Flaxseed, chia and hempseed
I challenge you to try these fruit-infused water options and high collagen foods for the next month. I know you’re going to love seeing your beautiful glowing self again in the mirror. Then come see me in person in May.
I’m co-hosting a great “Get Your Glow On” event on May 4th at Kristin Dahl Boutique, and I’d LOVE to see you there. There will be on-the-spot style consultations with Mary O’Reilly from GLOW, shopping with Kristin and delicious healthy treats by yours truly! We can chat about which fruit infusions and foods are your favorites in person and get your style on.
