Want A Healthy Skin: Watch what you eat

Understanding Aloe Vera by Dr Peter Atherton.

Want A Healthy Skin? Watch What You Eat.

Beauty is skin deep, so what would we find underneath your skin if we were to look? 
Everyone wants to look good on the outside without giving a thought about the inside. Nutrition plays a big part in how your skin looks. Eating a healthy diet nourishes your skin, and provides it with the
nutrients it needs.
This article discusses 5 steps to Incorporate into your daily routine to achieve the best skin possible. This includes drinking lots of water and other juices which contains vitamins A, C and zinc.

1. Increased your intake of water: 
Water helps clear the skin of toxics, which causes inflammation. Drinking lots of water ensures that nutrients and oxygen are carried to the skin cells, prevents dehydration which causes ageing and dullness. Drinking water also ensures that your skin is fuller and holds the water to the surface due to the presence of hyaluronic acid.
It is recommended that we drink 6 to 8 glasses of water daily to remain hydrated and also for a fuller and fresher. 

2. Go Gaga for Nuts.
It is recommended that we eat a handful of nuts daily. Most nuts contain selenium which increases skin elasticity. My daily intake of nuts consists of walnuts, Brazilian, and walnut.  
· Brazil nuts are the riches source of selenium. Selenium is a powerful antioxidant. It works alongside other antioxidants such as vitamins E and C and is essential for the immune system
· Walnuts contain omega-3 fatty acids. High levels of omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to decrease inflammation, and may cut the risk of cancer. You can get omega 3 from fish, such as sardines, salmon, mackerel, tuna, anchovies, and black cod, among many others, or from an omega 3 supplement, Try the Arctic Sea Supplement from Forever Living Products
· Eat macadamia which contains high quality oils and fatty acids that aid in skin repair and rejuvenation. It also lowers inflammation and put the brakes on breakouts " Aim for a handful of nuts daily to reap their pore-perfecting benefit. 

3. Take Skin Boosting Supplement:
Our skin nourished from within begins to change on the outside. Zinc is One of the nutrients our body need,
·It fights free radicals and supports immune cell production
· It repairs damaged tissues and heal wounds.
· It also helps clear acne and other irritating skin conditions.  
· Most cereals have 25 percent of the daily recommended value of zinc. If you are not a cereal fan or think cereal is for kids, then take a zinc supplement and you are well on your way to a clear and glowing complexion. Try the ImmuBlend which contains zinc, vitamins C and D
4.Vitamin C supplement
Eating food with vitamin C will ensure that you provide your body with the wound healing and skin protecting benefit of this vitamin. Food rich in Vitamin C include Oranges, kiwi, broccoli 
Half a cup of Broccoli has 65% more Vitamin C than oranges, Vitamin C foods mop up free radicals that causes wrinkles and sagging. And also help to remove the DNA damage they form. 
Again if you are not one for fruits, try taking a daily supplement high in Vitamin C.

5. Cut down on foods high in fat and carbohydrates
Nutritionist and research shows that Red meat is high in fat. In fact, red meat is known as ageing fats because of its effect on our skin. It is recommended that we stick to lean protein like fish and turkey beans, chicken beans and Lentils will revive and rejuvenate our cells as a diet high in fats and carbohydrates causes more wrinkles. 
The fastest way to avoid wrinkles is not Botox injections but to reduce your intake of red meat.

Don’t smoke.
Smoking reduces blood flow and prematurely wrinkles the skin, giving it a leathery appearance.


Include as much of these into your daily diet for a clearer, firmer and slower skin deterioration. As much as we try to resist it, our skin does age, spots and wrinkles are evident of accumulated damage from sun exposure, chemicals and poor nutrition.

Follow the above guidelines and try to include at least 2 good supplements as well as having a diet rich in fruits and vegetables containing beta carotene, Vitamin C, E, Zinc and Selenium.

Forever Living Weight Management - Clean 9 Detox

Clean 9 Program

It is getting to that time of the year again, the summer months.

O the joys of longer days, BBQ evenings, and lazy lie on the beach. If you are looking to get yourself in the best shape possible in time for your summer holidays.
The Forever Living Clean 9 has been designed to help you kick start your way to a healthy summer look.

 Benefits of Using Clean 9

The Clean 9 Program is a 9 day Aloe Vera based cleansing program, enabling you to naturally reset your body.


The soup of chemicals in the personal-care products we use and the processed foods we eat can make digestion difficult. The Clean 9 cleanse and weight loss plan addresses this issue head on by removing irritating foods and products and supporting improved digestion.

Energy and Mental Clarity

Following the Cleanse Diet shifts us away from hard-to-digest foods and harmful chemical irritants. This way of eating releases a surplus of energy that is now available for cleansing and increased mental clarity.


Many of us depend on stimulants like coffee and sugar and depressants like alcohol to help balance our changing moods. By following the Clean 9  and removing these items, you’ll reclaim your body’s natural equilibrium and stabilize your mood.

Weight Loss

There are many reasons why weight loss happens during the Clean Cleanse. When you transform your diet, you remove the foods that are mucous forming and water retaining. You also reduce cravings so there is less emotional eating.

But here’s the most important reason: 90% of the harmful chemicals we consume are lipophilic, which means they dissolve only in fat. When you consume them and they enter your blood stream, your body retains and even generates fat to surround the toxic molecule.

The Clean 9 cleanse helps deal with our chemical burden and aids weight loss by supporting your body’s cleanse pathways.

Discovering Deeper Issues

Each day our bodies continually battle against the calorie empty foods we consume. Burdened all the time, we may not notice certain health challenges until it’s too late. For many people, the Clean Cleanse helps to discover deeper health issues before they do permanent damage. 

Almost all adults, by the time they hit their 30s, will have digestive tracts and colons loaded with harmful chemical waste build-up caused by undigested foods.



Get your Clean 9 pack today and begin your journey to a cleaner leaner body in time for summer.

You can get a 15% discount for life on any forever living product you purchase  by completing the  Clean 9 form. Please enter these details: in the sponsor's details:

7 Steps To Achieve A Healthy Looking Plate.

Just last week the government watch dog on health sounded the alarm,  by 2020 a third of us would be obese. It would appear that Obesity is the singular threat to human existence. 
To avoid being a part of that statistics something has to give. You have to decide to eat right.

Eating right doesn't have to be difficult. It does involved some preparation to get you started. 
The National Health Service recommendation is for us to  eat at least five portions of fruits and vegetables daily, simply because fruits and vegetables are a good source of vitamins, minerals, and fibre and low in calories.
Despite the obvious benefits from eating 5 a day, most of us still aren’t doing it.

Here are 7 steps to help you achieve a healthy looking plate at each meal.

1. Plan your meals: Planning your meals will help you map out what goes onto your plate. Get a weekly meal planner to ensure you know your  what to eat and when. If you don’t know what to include day to day, get a  good cook book as a guide.  Choose your favourite meals and make sure that, whatever you choose have at least 3 vegetables with each meal. 

2. Your Shopping List:  This should include at least 3 of your five a day, which can be fresh, frozen, dried or tinned. Once you have your meal planner you will be able to see clearly what fruits or vegetables you need.

3. Select Healthy Starchy Options: it is recommended that starchy food should make up just over a third of the food we eat, these are good source of energy.  Choose whole grains whenever you can. Limit refined grains, like white rice and white bread, because the body rapidly turns them into blood sugar.  

4. Include Dairy Products: it is recommended that we should have diary at every meal. They are a good source of protein and vitamins. They are also an important source of calcium which helps to keep our bones strong. Try the low fat, low sugar option. 

5. Aim for The Healthiest Sources of Protein, such as fish, poultry, beans, and nuts; The advice by the health services is to cut back on red meat; avoid bacon, cold cuts, and other processed meats. At best these should be eaten in moderation. 

6. Healthy Oils: You should aim for healthy oils like olive, sunflower vegetables, rapeseed and canola oil. these are  unsaturated fats and are rated as better alternatives. They are all high in energy and should be eaten sparingly.

7. Drink More Fluid; drinking more water will keep you hydrated and fuller for longer. Drinking a glass of water before every meal will ensure you eat less. Avoid sugary drinks, and limit the consumption of tea and coffee. The Government recommends 6-8 glasses. 

Sticking to these steps will see you well on your way to having a healthy plate. 

Get a plan together, 
use that plan as your shopping aid
select healthy starchy options
Include healthy dairy products
Aim for healthy source of protein
Include healthy oils
Avoid unhealthy drinks. 
Anyone with special dietary or healthy issues should check with their dietitian or consult their doctor regarding the best eating plan for them.
