Foods That Brighten Your Complexion

FYBC 7:25.jpg

Consuming a well-balanced diet full of key nutrients is not only vital to your health but also to your skin. It is no secret that eating our fruits and vegetable are healthy and packed for of important ingredients, but a few stand out when it comes to brightening and clearing up the surface of your skin. By consuming these foods you may see a vast change in your complexion.

Carotenoids- Veggies that contain the chemical compound carotenoid, such as red peppers, carrots, and sweet potatoes, are proven to cause your skin to glow and appear more golden in color. Recent studies show that people who eat more foods rich in carotenoid have an overall healthier looking, less pale complexion.

Healthy Fats- Healthy fats such as olive oil and avocados are crucial to keeping your skin properly hydrated. The consumption of both carotenoid- rich foods and healthy fats increase the absorption of the compounds within these foods that help with complexion brightening. By eating more avocados you will consume more linoleic acid, which helps the skin hang on to water. The outcome? Plump and radiant skin!

Vitamin C & E- Kiwis, Lemons, Oranges, Mangoes are full of both Vitamin C and E, as well as antioxidants. These three properties naturally block the skin from damage and also rejuvenate it. Vitamin C which can be found in most citrus fruits is a key component to collagen synthesis. Loading up on vitamin C will fight the natural breakdown of collagen and protects you from wrinkles and other signs of aging.

Maintaining a well-balanced diet will certainly pay off down the road. If you are looking for more help with your complexion, contact us at FYBC! Take care of your skin and it will thank you later. Book an appointment with one of our skin care professionals today.

The 411 On Sunscreen!

fybc g.jpg

 

The key to keeping your skin looking youthful and fresh depends on how well you treat it. In order to have skin that still looks radiant in 15 years, you must take the necessary steps to ensure its health.  Exposing your skin to the sun is just a part of life. However, you can control how frequently and directly you allow UV rays. As warmer weather creeps closer, it is time to start thinking about ways to protect your skin. Protect your skin today by using a combination of sunscreen and sunblock as the sun heats up.

Which To Choose: Sunscreen vs Sunblock

Sunscreen, the chemical kind, penetrates the skin and absorbs the UVA rays before they can reach and cause damage to your dermal layer. Zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are the ingredients responsible for deflecting harmful UV rays before they reach the protective outer epidermis layer of your skin.

Sunblock, the physical kind, contains both organic and non-organic ingredients that essentially stay on top of the skin and act as a barrier between the rays and the outer layer of the skin. Buy a sunblock with ingredients like octyl methoxycinnamate, octyl salicylate, and octocrylene.

The major difference between the two is that sunblocks are formulated to shield against UVB rays, while sunscreens protect against UVA. Luckily, these days you can find formulas that contain both.

Take the necessary steps to ensure you feel and look your best, always. If you have questions or concerns about your skin, give us a call today or book an appointment with one of our skincare professionals. Loving the skin you’re in starts with how well you care for it.

3 Tips To Help Prepare Your Skin For Sun Exposure

fybc

Exfoliate and Hydrate

Although neither exfoliating or hydrating your skin can protect you from harmful UV rays, exfoliation and hydration are crucial steps in preparing your skin for sun exposure. Exfoliating is important because it helps remove dead skin cells that build up on the surface of your face after you tan. It is important to remember to not exfoliate before stepping out into the sun, as it removes the protective layer of your skin.

Tanning or any sort of sun exposure has a way of drying out your skin. It is proven that drier skin is more vulnerable to harmful UV rays. By hydrating frequently you are not only moisturizing and replenishing your skin, but you are helping rebuild the protective layer of your skin.

Make Small Diet Changes

It is true that you can improve your skin’s resistance and protect against UV rays by making small changes to your diet! Foods rich in antioxidants, beta-carotene and carotenoids like apricots, peas, carrots, melon, tomatoes, squash, mangos and kale will help your skin when it comes time to reintroduce direct sunlight. Consider consuming more Vitamin E as well. Vitamin E sources like almonds, nuts and vegetable oil offer their own type of protection from the sun.

Slow, Progressive Exposure

The key to maintaining a glow without damaging your skin is to go slow. Progressive sun exposure is the only “safe” way reintroduce your skin to the sun. Keep in mind that you should avoid burning while being in the sun.  Remember that burning increases your risk to skin cancer. Tanning is not good for your skin, so find a great SPF that covers all the UVA and UVB ray spectrum. Keep your sun exposure short and sweet for your safety and your overall look. If you are simply dying to get your summertime glow before spring hits, book an appointment for a spray tan today!
