5 Simple Tips For Healthy Skin in Nepean

The largest organ in your body is your skin which can make up a total of 20 square feet!

The skin has many important functions such as regulating body temperature, protecting us from the elements and microbes which carry bacteria and can cause illness. It also helps the body detox and excretes toxins.

So, at Capital Chiropractic our Nepean Chiropractor shares 5 tips on keeping it healthy.

Tips To Staying Healthy in Nepean

  • TIP #1: Consume OMEGA 3s through fish oil supplements and wild-caught fish. One of the many reasons that I recommend that our patients take fish oils is to help not only with brain and nervous system health but to help with hair and skin health. Dry, itchy flaking skin could be signs of an Omega 3 deficiency.
  • TIP #2: Reduce, (or ideally) eliminate sugar and processed foods. Sugar can bind to amino acids in your elastin and collagen which can cause your skin to age faster. High-sugar diets can contribute to increases in skin conditions such as acne.
  • TIP #3: Maintain a healthy gut. Use probiotics to protect your gut mitochondria. An unhealthy gut can create more inflammation, oxidative stress, affect your glycemic index and increase certain skin conditions like acne.
  • TIP #4: Make sure you're not deficient in certain nutrients. Many different nutrients are key for healthy skin. Deficiencies in vitamin D have been shown to present in things like acne and psoriasis. Zinc has also been an important nutrient in skin health as deficiencies can be present in eczema, rashes, and acne.
  • TIP #5: Sweat! When the body raises its temperature, you get increased blood flow to the skin. Sweating helps move and get rid of toxins from your body. Using sauna and steam baths are other options to get rid of toxins through your skin.
