How to Have Better Skin From the Inside Out

By  | 

Skincare is hard, and it is something that becomes even more challenging as you get older. I remember my skin being flawless when I was a teenager regardless of what I did or ate. Now at the ripe old age of 29, taking care of my skin is something I’ve had to work at. And I try hard not to revert to make up every time I’m having a skin issue on my face since I want my skin to look good long after I tire of makeup. (Makeup is  perfect for now BTW ☺️)

So what’s a girl to do to keep her skincare regimen on point? The secret is to make sure your routine starts with what you put in your body as well as what you put on your skin. Check out my tips below on how to keep your skin healthy as you get older.

Eat Superfoods for Better Skin on the Regular

Better skin starts from the inside. In the book, Lose Weight Without Dieting or Working Out: Discover Secrets to a Slimmer, Sexier, and Healthier You, by JJ Smith, she said that your skin is a good indicator of if something is not functioning properly on the inside. That stuck with me and made me realize how important it is to ensure we are getting enough of the right nutrients in our bodies, and superfoods are an excellent way to get some great nutrients.

A few foods that better your skin include but are not limited to:

  • Kidney Beans
  • Walnuts
  • Pomegranates
  • Green Tea

Vegetables, nuts, and fruits with bright colors are typically loaded with nutrients and flavonoids that make for healthy, better skin.

Drink Lots of Water

Our bodies are made up of 80% water, and your skin is your biggest organ, so drink up! When your skin isn;t getting enough water it will begin to show. Your lips will chap, your skin will be dry, tight and flaky and since dry skin is less resilient, that means it is more likely to wrinkle. My advice? Just get your eight glasses of water for the day and quit fooling around. Your skin and the rest of your organs will thank you for it.

Start a Skin Care Regimen That Works from the Inside Out

Now that you are putting the right things in your body let’s talk about better skin care products that improve your skin from the inside out. I have tried MANY a skincare product, and I have never seen anything quite like the BeBella®’s skincare line. It is an advanced probiotic oral and topical anti-aging skin care products that are pretty amazing. What makes them unique is their patented anti-aging ingredients: Probiotic + Yeast Propagate Technology.

BeBe & Bella is a company created by women for women, and like us, the BeBe & Bella squad faces the same daily stresses as we all do.  They understand that the stresses related to balancing family, life, and career can take a toll on our health and our appearance. That’s why they created a product line that addresses caring for both our health and appearance.

BeBella®’s skin-friendly yeast complex encourages faster cell turnover, enhances the skin’s protective moisture barrier, and fights off free radicals. Lactobacillus Before is a probiotic amino acid polypeptide that hydrates and exfoliates the skin as well as evens out skin tone and complexion. Unlike most skincare products, this line comes with oral supplements that provide maximum antioxidant effects, adds collagen to the skin, and nourishes and hydrates your skin from the inside out.

I have talked about the benefits of Probiotics extensively before since they are well-known for their benefits in balancing the digestive system. When probiotics are applied topically, they also encourage faster cell turnover, enhance the skin’s protective moisture barrier, and reverse photodamage to the skin. The BeBella® line is water-based and contains neither sulfates nor added fragrances or coloring. The oral supplements amplify overall health benefits to the skin when used in tandem with the topical products.

How does it all work? I’m glad you asked! After cleansing your face, you should use the complete line of BeBella® products, in a particular layering order. The Japanese method of layering dictates a sequence of the goods applied to the skin in order of recommended use. The recommended use of BeBella® products is as follows: Facial Cleanser, then Toner, Facial Essence, followed by the Eye Cream and then finishing with the Hydrating Night Cream. I’ve been using these products myself and loved the simplicity of them all and I have even been flaunting my clear skin, which leads me to my next point…

Go Makeup Free Every Now and Again

I think it’s pretty important to go bare-faced every now and again. I spent New Years Eve makeup-free, and I’ll be honest it felt nice going bare-faced for a change. I think going without makeup gives your skin a chance to breathe and to get a look at what you look like without the makeup. I just made sure to pluck my brows and add a little moisturizer to my face, and it was a done deal.

Prior to my BeBella®’s regimen, I wouldn’t have even thought about going to an evening event makeup-free. Check out my before and after photos after only a few weeks between each other. I noticed that my complexion evened out and all the small bumps on my forehead seemed to disappear. I think these products are awesome and I have even convinced my sister to start using them as well :D.

As I mentioned before, your skin is the largest organ on your body, so take care of it! Keep it moisturized, drink enough water, and make sure you are getting your nutrients. I think the BeBella® regimen will become a part of my routine in the new year, and it should be a part of yours too! If you want to try out these products for yourself, you can get them by going here. I also have a special promo code to get 20% off! Just use PRIMP20 when you check out for your discount.

  • Becca Wilson

    I had no idea that I should be adding super foods to my diet. I have already made some other changes.

  • Annemarie LeBlanc

    I agree with you that to have healthy skin, we must nourish it from the inside out. Lotions and creams help to lock in moisture, but the best way is still to stay hydrated and include certain foods into our daily diet. I will also look into Bebella products. It looks like you found a perfect care regimen for your skin!

    I really like that these ingredients are all natural. I must confess, while I take great care with my nutrition, I am terrible with what to put on my face.

  • end of 2016 i started eating or drinking pomegranate! i even mix pomegranate tea with my classic green tea everyday! they taste yummy! i need to have some walnuts

  • I’m all about skin care. I do drink green tea, but it’s something that I have yet to appreciate because it’s a bit bitter for me. And I cant stress enough on the importance of being make-up free – our skin(s) will thank us for this.

    You have such beautiful skin! I completely agree that beauty begins from inside and diet is so important! That and drinking loads of water are the two most important things you can do for your skin!

  • Thank you for this. I’m always looking for ways to help my skin out. I try to always drink a lot of water.

  • oh I have terrible skin at the moment its so dry and looking worn so may just have to give this a try

  • Natasha Smith

    As a 30 something I can attest to the importance of taking care of your skin and drinking water is so very key as our skin tends to become dryer as we age. This system sounds great.

  • I have to say my main way of keeping my skin healthier is drinking a lot of water and sunscreen. My skin has thanked me for that

  • Athena Nagel
