In our constant quest for self improvement we abide by the age-old tradition of making New Years’ Resolutions. This year, instead of making a dreadful commitment or two, why not make a New Years’ goal to be excited about? Improving the quality of your skin is not only one of the best investments you can make in yourself, it can also improve your overall well-being and here are some helpful tips how:
• Gain more confidence in all of your face-to-face interactions. Your skin is the ambassador of the quality of your lifestyle as it doesn’t lie. Whether you’re stressed, happy or sleep deprived, it will be revealed in your skin. When your skin looks its best and is radiant, you will feel like you’re ready to take on the world. Our state-of-the-art Visia® digital skin analysis system is a great starting point to determine where improvement is needed.
• Sleep more and your skin will thank you! You know how you feel with minimal sleep and how you look when you first wake up. Looking in the mirror can produce a scary sight. Lack of high quality sleep can be tough on the skin, making it look and feel tired and lackluster. During restful periods of sleep, the skin utilizes the time to rejuvenate and replenish while producing necessary growth hormones for collagen production. Dr. Feng helps many patients who have poor sleep patterns with a variety of solutions.
• Eating a plant-based diet is very effective for improvement of the skin. A plant-based diet is plentiful in fruits and vegetables, which are full of antioxidants to help neutralize the skin of damaging free radicals. In addition, eating a plant-based diet ensures elimination of the pore-clogging saturated fats found in animal products. FengFit® plant-based soups and salads are an excellent choice for busy people on the go.
• Commit to high quality, pharmaceutical-grade vitamins and supplements. Not all vitamins and supplements are created equal and some do very little to maintain healthy levels. Not only can the right vitamins and supplements help to boost your immune system and give you more energy, they can also contribute to brighter, healthier skin. Many people overlook the importance of vitamins and supplements and don’t realize they also contain properties such as zinc which reduces inflammation, Vitamin A which helps rejuvenate the skin, and hyaluronic acid that helps maintain moisture levels in the skin resulting in a more supple effect.
When it comes to great skin, don’t overlook healthy nutrition, restful sleep and high quality vitamins and supplements. Our trained skin care experts can do an analysis to help you determine what’s right for you.
