Y’all know I like to heal the skin from the inside out and the outside in. Today I’m touching on healthy skin from the inside out. I’m working on keeping this email short & sweet, if you’re craving more please visit my blog.
What we eat & drink is information for our body and affects all our body’s systems, including our largest organ, the skin. Below are three things that will benefit every skin type and help in slowing down the aging process.
Easy as 1, 2, 3
- Prebiotics instead of probiotics. Your body has its own unique mixture of gut bacteria. Prebiotic foods allow your body to maintain a healthy gut microbiome that is unique to you. Some of my favorite prebiotic foods are onions, garlic, mushrooms, asparagus, grapefruit, artichoke, apples, bananas, and watermelon. Additional resource.
- Exercise. Cardio, specifically. Get that blood pumping and nutrients flowing. Feel like you have zero time? Try 10-minute power walks 3 times a day and see how you feel.
- Get your Omegas. Essential for healthy organs (including the skin), muscles, and bones. Getting your Omegas 3, 6, 7, and 9 will help your skin glow. I recently started taking the Osmosis Wellness Recovery supplement. I’ll post more about it after completing my first bottle.
Bonus tip: Speaking of exercise, walking after a meal helps lower insulin resistance. This means less inflammation, less glycation, less visible signs of aging, and better health overall. This is a good time to try working the three 10-minute brisk walks into your schedule.
How I take Osmosis Recovery
Recovery has 3 protocols:
- Omega & probiotic recovery: 1 tablespoon/day (restoration expected after 3 bottles)
- Fat Pad Renewal: 2 tablespoons/day (restoration expected after 7 bottles)
- Maintenance: 1 teaspoon/day
I’ve started with 1 tablespoon per day. You can take it like a shot from a small cup, put it on your salad as a dressing, or mix it into a smoothie.
I have taken it as a shot. To me, it has the mild taste of macadamia nuts due to the macadamia nut oil.
My favorite way has become mixing it in a berry smoothie. I use 8-10 ounces of purified water, 1 tablespoon Recovery, and 2-3 handfuls (my hands are tiny) of a frozen organic berry mixture containing blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries.
I keep only 1-2 bottles in stock at a time to ensure you have the freshest product possible.
My first dose of recovery. I love the golden color and mild macadamia nut flavor.
