Summer heat is in full swing, so it's important to take extra care of your skin during this season. Summer is one of the greatest seasons for supporting skin health due to the wide variety of skin loving produce in season. Juicy cucumbers, antioxidant-rich berries, and leafy greens are just a few, and all support hydrating the skin from the inside out. In addition to staying hydrated, don't forget the sunscreen. It's best to use a mineral sunscreen, rather than a chemical sunscreen because it does not contain toxic ingredients that absorb into your body.
According to TCM, face mapping is the idea that certain blemishes or concern areas on the skin are correlated to certain organs in the body. For example, the liver is strongly connected to the skin, as it's responsible for detoxification, digestion & emotions, in particular anger. When the liver is overburdened, this can be reflected on the skin. Or perhaps when someone is chronically angry or frustrated this explains why they may have a deep groove on their forehead between the eyebrows.
We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but sugar and the skin are not the best of friends. In fact sugar is the number one contributor to premature aging because it breaks down collagen and elastin. Additionally many sugars, such as refined sugars are highly inflammatory on the gut and skin. To better support the health of the body and look of the skin, it's best to only consume sugar in natural forms, such as fruit or honey, and focus on incorporating leafy greens, organic proteins and omega 3 fats into the diet.
