Maybe you skipped out on making any resolutions in January, but with February kicking off, it doesn’t mean it’s too late. You can still make this the year of eating clean and indulging wisely. What is clean eating? It isn’t about washing all the pesticides off your produce, if that’s what you were thinking. It’s about choosing all natural,whole foods while incorporating complex carbohydrates, fresh fruits, lean protein, vegetables and healthy fats.
And what does this have to do with beauty? Because our skin is our largest organ and its beauty on the surface is a reflection of what we’re feeding it on the inside. Ever notice how when after a weekend of overdoing it with alcohol and sugar, your face breaks out? Studieshave shown that those inflammatory foods mentioned above can cause internal imbalances, which are mirrored on our skin, usually in the form of acne. And that’s one aspect of youth we’d all rather leave in the past.
