How Cutting Down On Dairy Will Benefit Your Skin

As most know, the skin is affected from the inside out so taking care of your skin on the outside as well as through a healthy diet on the inside is just as important, if not more so. In recent years there has been more research with plant based diets and the health benefits that come with it. While there is a lot of reward with giving up animal products as a whole, there is also some risk involved if not done the correct way. That being said, cutting out just dairy or reducing dairy will show great benefits to your skin and overall health. Dairy is an inflammatory food, filled with hormones which is a major cause of oils in the body. Since acne is an inflammatory condition, with excess oil getting trapped in pores, this causes bacteria to grow in the follicle resulting in more acne prone oily skin. Certain skin conditions such as rosacea will also see great benefits to ditching dairy. Taking it a step further and removing all animal products may help even more, as long as you're not replacing animal products with unhealthy carbohydrates. Instead, make sure you are filling your body with all the necessary vitamins and nutrient packed fruits and veggies. A nourished body on the inside will glow on the outside as well. Changing your diet can be a challenge, and does not have to happen overnight. Your transition can be as gradual as you need in order to make the change successful and permanent. Here are simple tips and tricks to help you reduce/ditch dairy or any animal products:

  • Start by taking out one product at a time ie. milk and replace it with almond, oat, coconut milk etc. Then, gradually replace another dairy product (or any other animal product).
  • Start with one meal of the day at a time, lets say breakfast and once you got that down move on to lunch and so on.
  • Keep things like nutritional yeast and other vegan cheese replacements in the house.
  • Find alternatives to your favorite foods and snacks to keep on hand.
  • Load up on fruits and veggies.
  • Keep any foods you are ditching, out of the house this way you won't be tempted to eat them.

Why Vitamin B Can Help With Cardiovascular Health And Reduce Risk Of Alzheimers

B Vitamins are a group of nutrients that play an important role on many of your bodies systems. Most people get the recommended amount of B Vitamins through diet but factors such as age, pregnancy, genetics, medications and medical conditions can increase the body's need for B Vitamins. These Vitamins are linked to helping the body manage Homocysteine levels. High levels of Homocysteine have been linked to increased risk of heart attack, stroke and even Alzheimer's disease.

If your body is showing low levels of Homocysteine talk to your doctor about treating your B Vitamin levels. Vitamin supplements can be taken as a way to increase B vitamins. However, the best way to get more B Vitamins is naturally through foods that are high in B Vitamins which include:

  • Whole grains
  • Meat
  • Eggs
  • Dairy
  • Dark leafy greens (broccoli, spinach, kale)
  • Fruits (bananas, citrus, avocado)

Plastic Surgery Tip

Getting Rid Of Your Double Chin Without Surgery

If you have been considering treatment options for your double chin there are many non surgical options for you to choose from. CoolSculpting can be a great choice for the double chin. A CoolSculpting applicator is applied under the chin and it freezes the fat cells. The frozen fat cells will be absorbed by the body. Kybella is an injectable that can also be used to get rid of your double chin. With this treatment the Kybella is injected under the chin and it will help to melt away the fat cells. Both of these treatments take only about 10 minutes and can all be done in the office. They are both great non surgical treatment options to help you with your double chin.
