The Edible Skincare Fixes You Need Now

Posted by Anna Mitsios on

Healthy glowing skin is in your realm! In the blog post below we provide inside out beauty secrets to combat common skin ailments which will provide the bright, clear and youthful skin we are all seeking.

REDNESS

Skin redness can be the cause of social anxiety and embarrassment and whilst conventionally there are no obvious remedies (rosacea is often treated with antibiotics without a positive outcome), there are vitamins which when applied topically help to combat this and three trigger foods to avoid which will also assist you in achieving bright and glowing skin.

OUTSIDE SECRET

One of the best way to take advantage of our skin absorbing nutrients applied topically is to focus on vitamin and antioxidant abundant products which nourish and revitalise the skin. Our favourite vitamins to combat redness are B vitamins and vitamin E. They work by reducing inflammation and can be found at therapeutic levels in & Coco Bliss Intensive Repair, our favourite anti-redness and anti-pigmentation product.

Studies suggest that Vitamin B3 applied topically can reduce the signs and symptoms of severe acne or rosacea by reducing the inflammation of the skin. Vitamin B3 works by increasing the production of ceramides and fatty acids which are two key components of the outer barrier of the skin. This action of strengthening the barrier results in skin being better able to keep moisture in and irritants out. Another benefit of B3 is that it inhibits the transfer of pigment to cells minimizing dark circles. In general, when applied topically all B vitamins will improve the balance, texture and moisture balance of the skin. Vitamin E also works to heal and regenerate the skin, reducing any scarring or lingering redness once the skin has healed.

INSIDE SECRET

Taken internally B vitamins will also work to improve damaged skin. On the inside we have also found that the best way to combat redness is by actually avoiding trigger foods. These include some very frequently consumed foods including wine, dairy, cheese, spices, chocolate and citrus. Eating garlic (1 or 2 cloves a day or taking a garlic capsule) and taking on a probiotic addresses the gut and microbial contributors to rosacea and redness.

ACNE

The secret to addressing acne through food and your beauty routine is understanding that the condition stems from hormonal imbalance and excess sebum production. This can often be an excess of testosterone, oestrogen or insulin. Balancing these hormones, assisting the body in easily removing these hormones from the body and addressing excess oil production from the outside creates a fail proof way to eliminate acne.

OUTSIDE SECRET

On the outside we have two Edible Beauty products which work in reducing hormonal and stress acne every time. They are found in our Acne Away Set and include our No. 1 Belle Frais Cleansing Milk and & Soothe Me Balm. Our Cleansing Milk is a gentle coconut milk based cleanser which is perfect for inflamed and irritated skin. Coconut Oil balances oil production which is critical in the control of acne. It is also "non-foaming" which is important when it comes to controlling acne. It means that the skin is not stripped of its "acid-mantle" which acts as a barrier, protecting the skin from microbes and toxins that can flare acne.  

& Soothe Me Balm is the ultimate restoring balm for unhappy acne prone skin. It is an ultra-soothing gel which contains botanical extracts and oils with potent soothing, regenerating and anti-microbial properties. This balm will reduce the redness, inflammation and irritation associated with acne, provide antimicrobial support to prevent flare ups and starts the skin's healing and restoration process.  

INSIDE SECRET

The liver is one of the most important players in dictating the health of our skin. A liver under excess load will results in excess hormone build up and an over load of toxins being released through the skin which manifests as acne. We find the easiest way to support the liver is through our No. 1 Green Goddess Detox Tea. This tea contains an abundance of liver-loving herbs including St Mary’s Thistle, Schizandra and Dandelion Root which work to detoxify and repair your liver, getting to the root cause of your acne woes.

Regulating hormones is also a critical factor in controlling acne. The Edible Beauty No. 4 Golden Glow Tea contains red clover and licorice which work to support hormones which can often become imbalanced when acne is present. It also contains the wonderful lymphatic herbs Burdock and Cleavers which work to detoxify and cleanse the blood. Increasing fibre in the diet also ensures that excess hormones are reduced.  I find I get quick and easy results when I recommend a tablespoon of flaxseed meal and 1 to 2 cups of cruciferous vegetables as the most effective way to do this. 

PIGMENTATION

You do not need to accept that dark spots are on your face to stay. AHAs are our saviour when it comes to dark spots. They are not only super effective in removing dead and damaged cells but help to reduce fine lines, age spots, acne scars and discoloration. They also work to bind moisture and improve healthy collagen production. In this respect AHAs create a beautiful smooth complexion; balancing uneven skin texture, refining pores and enhancing your overall glow.

 

OUTSIDE SECRET

Fruit is naturally rich in AHAs. Our Edible Beauty Australia No.1 Belle Frais Cleansing Milk is teeming with fruits including Apple Extract, Strawberry Extract and Lime making it the perfect brightening and dark spot reducing product. Our No. 3 Exotic Goddess Ageless Serum is also rich in Acerola Berries and Kakadu Plum, sources of vitamin C which have been shown to visibly reduce pigmentation.

INSIDE SECRET

Lemon, grapefruit and other citrus fruits contain alpha hydroxy acids, primarily in the form of citric acid. Drink in your AHAs with a daily squeeze of lemon or grapefruit juice in water, and your liver will also feel the love. Eating foods rich in vitamin C such as kiwis, acai, berries and broccoli will also help internally.
