Exposed! Shocking report reveals 7 things you MUST know about how you are damaging your skin and ways to achieve glowing skin. (#6 will blow your mind)

1. Harsh Skincare:

Ever wondered why your skin feels irritated or is breaking out after trying out the latest skincare trend? It turns out, bombarding your skin with too many active ingredients can actually backfire. Think of your skin barrier as a fortress—it keeps the good stuff in and the bad stuff out. But when you overload it with harsh exfoliants and acids (like retinol, vitamin c, etc.), you're essentially breaking down its defenses. Your skin is an organ that knows how to function on its own, so try to stick to simpler, cleaner ingredients to keep your skin barrier intact and your complexion happy.

2. Hot Showers:

Who doesn't love a steamy shower to unwind after a long day? But did you know that those hot showers might be wreaking havoc on your skin? Hot water strips away your skin's natural oils, leaving it dry and vulnerable. Switching to lukewarm water can help maintain your skin's moisture balance and prevent unnecessary damage. It's a small change that can make a big difference in the health of your skin.

3. Diet:

You are what you eat, and that includes your skin. Turns out, certain foods can trigger inflammation, the root cause of many skin issues like acne and eczema. Say goodbye to seed oils and dairy products! Seed oils, like corn and soybean oil, are high in omega-6 fatty acids, which can lead to chronic inflammation in the body, oxidative stress which can cause sunburns and contribute to skin issues such as acne and eczema. Opt for healthier fats like olive oil instead. Dairy products can contain hormones and growth factors that can disrupt hormone balance and stimulate oil production in the skin, leading to acne breakouts. Dairy can also trigger inflammation, exacerbating skin conditions. Moderation and alternatives like coconut milk are key to maintaining skin health. Say hello to whole, real foods packed with antioxidants and vitamins. Your skin will thank you for it with a radiant, blemish-free complexion. 90% of skin health is what you do at home!!

4. Stress:

Stress isn't just bad for your mind—it's bad for your skin too. When you're stressed, your body releases hormones that can wreak havoc on your skin, leading to breakouts and dullness. Finding ways to manage stress, whether it's through meditation, exercise, or simply taking time for yourself, can work wonders for your skin's health and appearance.

5. Sleep:

Beauty sleep isn't just a myth—it's science. While you're catching z's, your body is hard at work repairing and rejuvenating your skin. Skimping on sleep not only leaves you feeling groggy but can also lead to fine lines, wrinkles, and dullness. Invest in a good night's sleep, and your skin will thank you with a youthful, radiant glow. Don’t forget your silk pillow case!

6. Sun Exposure:

The sun is both friend and foe to your skin. While moderate exposure promotes vitamin D production and enhances mood, excessive exposure can lead to premature aging and an increased risk of skin cancer. Strike a balance by enjoying the sun in moderation and protecting your skin with hats, sunglasses, and supplements like Thorne ResveraCel and Coenzyme Q10. These antioxidants help shield your skin from oxidative stress and prevent sunburns. Additionally, omega-3 fatty acids offer anti-inflammatory benefits, supporting overall skin health. Omega-6 fatty acids can contribute to sunburns. Avoiding chemical sunscreens is crucial to prevent the absorption of harmful ingredients that may disrupt hormone balance and increase the risk of cancer. Go slow when trying to build that nice tan!

7. Water Intake:

You've heard it a million times, but it's worth repeating—drink more water! Your skin is like a plant—it needs water to thrive. Dehydration can leave your skin looking dull and lifeless, so make sure you're getting enough H2O throughout the day. Your skin will thank you with a healthy, hydrated glow that's impossible to ignore.
