I have heard from a few friends and clients about how their skin has not been looking its best lately and how during the summer they tend to overindulge. With so many summer parties and bbq's it seems pretty easy to do. Most people are off their normal schedules and many moms I have spoken to look forward to the kids heading back to school to get back on track with their routines and food.
Some of these overindulgences can totally affect the skin in a negative way. I know personally I have had skin rashes and redness in the past just because of a food I was eating. I know people with mystery breakouts that clear up when they reset their diet or cut out some inflammatory foods. Below I am going to highlight a few foods to cut back on or avoid to get your skin looking better from the inside out!
If you are seeing a negative difference in your skin and have been consuming many of these foods, try cutting back or going without and see if it helps get the glow back into your skin. I think when we start with something as simple as what we are eating when we are having skin issues, this alone can lead to huge positive changes. I recommend trying a program like the Whole 30 for a month if you are experiencing skin problems or feel like you need to reset. Especially people who are having unexplained breakouts or rashes, it is so common for those to be caused by food. Have food choices ever had a negative impact on your skin?
