Skincare is about more than the products you use. You can spend thousands of dollars on skin and body care products that are tailored just for you, and religiously stick to your routine and still struggle with chronic breakouts. This post is all about looking at what's going on inside your body and the different ways you can set yourself up to have healthy, glowing skin.

You are what you eat
Before we talk about hormones, I want to cover this fundamental topic first that we've heard a million times, but it never hurts to be reminded. It's the obvious, if you eat a healthy diet that's low in sugars, carbohydrates, and trans fats, you'll be more likely to sport a healthy, glowing complexion. A diet leaning more toward snack foods, sugary sodas and lattes, fast foods, and complex carbohydrates (bread, pasta, cookies, crackers, etc...) can cause breakouts due to the low nutrition and high trans fat content. Eat clean, nutrient dense foods to fuel your body, give you energy, replenish minerals and vitamins, and your skin (and body) will benefit greatly.
