The Beauty Chef Inner Health and Outer Beauty
These days, we all know the health implications of an unbalanced diet. We understand the importance of certain food types and the benefits they can bring to short and longer term health.
What we may be less familiar with is the importance to our outer splendour of good inner health and digestion. Inner and outer beauty are indeed closely tied together.
The Beauty Chef offers a good variety of inner beauty and outer beauty organic skin care products to support this balance, and organic supplements to help with maintaining the look and well being of the skin.
But how might a lack of good digestive health show itself on the outside?
What evidence could indicate improper digestion?
There are a range of skin conditions which could indicate that your digestion might be poor.
This is a long range of symptoms, to which could be added a generally sallow complexion. There are many potential causes, though, of many of these – not all of them diet related. So how could you narrow down the problem to see whether digestion is a factor?
What clues might lead you to think your digestion is a problem?
A big indicator is how you feel after a meal. If you have bloating or gas, this can be a sign that your body is not digesting your food effectively. Stomach cramps are also a sign. These sometimes are felt a longer time after eating, when the food has passed through the stomach into the intestines.
Why is healthy digestive flora important for good skin?
Good flora (the bacteria that helps to break down food to aid digestion) helps with the absorption of nutrients. When it is failing to do its job, the body simply does not take in enough nutrition. Several things can lead to a failure of gut flora. These include:
- Over indulgence with alcohol
- Poor diet
The effects can be seen in weak and easily damaged nails, skin imperfections and a drop in the quality of your hair.
How does poor digestion impact our outer beauty?
If food is not digested, it sits in the digestive tract. Once there, it begins to rot. It releases toxins which are absorbed into the body. The intestinal wall will build mucus, and this will make digestion even harder for the body to complete. It also makes getting rid of waste harder, with the result that further toxins are released. A dietary vicious circle is formed.
The physical factors, such as poor diet and alcohol, are easy to understand, but why does stress contribute to the problem?
Stress is a state of anxiety, and in those conditions the body prioritises – through the release of chemicals such as adrenaline – the immediate, which is a kind of fight or flight scenario. Basically, the body stops concentrating on the process of digestion. So even with a healthy diet, stress will hinder the absorption of nutrients. More though, when anxious our appetite suffers and often the way we begin to look adds to the stress we are feeling.
The answer is to ensure that the diet you eat is healthy, and is supplemented by the kinds of inner health giving foods that are available to ensure that you are as beautiful inside as out, which ultimately are key to anti-aging.
