Natural Tips for Healthy Skin

In our last post, we talked about some of the skin conditions that red light therapy can help treat. At Avanti Body in Vacaville, we are passionate about your health and want to share some things you can be doing in conjunction with red light therapy to have a natural, healthy glow! Here are 5 tips for healthy skin: 

1. Eat a healthy diet. 

What we put into our body doesn’t just impact our weight and how we feel, it also affects the appearance of our skin. In addition to eating a diet free from processed foods and excess sugar, here are some specific foods to focus on for healthy skin:

  • Fish
  • Avocados
  • Walnuts
  • Green tea
  • Broccoli
  • Bone broth

 

2. Drink water. 

Staying hydrated is one of the most important things we can do for our skin. On top of that, hydration has many other added benefits such as boosting mood and energy levels, improving digestive health, treating headaches, detoxifying, helping you lose weight, and fighting stress. We’ve all heard the rule about drinking 8 glasses of water a day—while everyone’s exact water requirements are different, this is a good place to start. It’s best to check with a doctor or nutritionist to determine just how much water your body needs. 

 

3. Exfoliate/dry brush. 

Exfoliating about twice a week helps remove dead and dry skin cells and improves circulation, keeping your skin healthy and glowing. Dry brushing is exactly what it sounds like—brushing the skin with a dry brush, usually before showering. You brush the skin with a specific pattern, toward the heart, starting with the feet and hands. Here are some of the benefits of exfoliating and dry brushing:

  • Detoxification
  • A brighter complexion
  • Removes dead/old skin cells to reveals healthy skin underneath
  • Improves skin tone 
  • Prevents breakouts 
  • Helps with ingrown hairs
  • Stimulates the lymph system to eliminate toxins from the body 

 

4. Moisturize. 

Moisturizing is key to younger, more supple-looking skin. At Avanti Body, we carry the Osaine SeaStem Line of products including:

  • Renewing Day Cream
  • Renewing Night Cream
  • Healing Face Serum
  • Restoring Eye Cream
  • Remodeling Body Cream

 

5. Exercise. 

Sweating is a fantastic way to cleanse your pores. Raising your heart rate through exercise several times a week can also improve your circulation and, as a result, your skin’s appearance. Exercise supports the detoxification and cellular renewal processes in the body. 

 

6. Get plenty of sleep.

It’s called beauty sleep for a reason! Your skin is one of the first places a lack of sleep will show up. We’ve all experienced dark circles under our eyes after a rough night of tossing and turning. Sleep is the body’s way of renewing and refreshing itself, including your skin. Making sleep a priority is one of the best things you can do to slow the effects of the aging process. 

 

7. Just say no.

Try to avoid these things as much as possible, as they can all have very damaging effects on the skin.

  • Excessive sun exposure
  • Smoking
  • Excessive bathing 
  • Strong soaps and detergents 
  • Stress

Heal Your Skin with Red Light Therapy

We’ve talked a lot about the anti-aging benefits that red light therapy can provide for your skin— but the truth is it can heal a whole host of other skin issues as well. Your skin is vitally important. It’s the largest organ of the body, it’s your first line of defense against harmful bacteria and viruses, and it protects you against the sun’s harmful rays. But on top of all that, it also plays a huge role in your self-esteem and confidence. Anyone who’s had skin issues knows this all too well. At Avanti Body in Vacaville, CA, we care about the health of your skin. If you’re looking for an effective treatment for skin issues, we can help! 

Acne

Studies have shown red and near-infrared light to be effective for treating acne. Red light therapy works below the surface of your skin on a cellular level, repairing tissue—unlike creams and face washes. Red light affects the production of a substance called sebum, which contributes to the production of acne. It also controls cytokines, which are proteins produced by the cells that are responsible for the skin inflammation and redness associated with bad acne. Red light therapy has been shown to be effective in reducing scarring associated with acne, as well. If your acne is caused by a chronic skin condition, red light therapy might be the right treatment option for you. 

Psoriasis

Psoriasis is an immune-mediated skin disorder that is characterized by bumpy, red patches covered with white scales. These patches can grow anywhere on the body, but are most common on the scalp, elbows, knees, and lower back. While there isn’t a cure for psoriasis yet, you can find some relief with the right combination of treatments. Red light therapy is one tool you can use for finding psoriasis relief. Of course, before trying any new treatments, it’s best to consult with your physician first.

Other Skin Conditions

In addition to all these skin issues red light therapy can help to treat, it can also help with: 

  • Scarring
  • Inflammation
  • Redness
  • Cold Sores
