I made these small health changes & my skin is glowing

I wanted to share a few secrets I've recently trialled which have given me radiant skin and cleared up my pimples.

I wanted to share a few secrets I've recently trialled which have given me radiant skin and cleared up my pimples.

These past few months I have been on a journey to get my health in check. I’ve been seeing a number of different health care specialists who have given me their professional advice on small changes I can make to improve my overall wellbeing. The simplest and most effective change I’ve made was giving up coffee. Yes, I have avoided caffeine for the past 3 months and I’ve loved the change. I’ve replaced it with lemon water and it’s been a game changer.

By swapping my coffee fix for lemon water I’ve noticed a few improvements. My stomach bloating has decreased, my skin looks brighter and I’ve had less pimples. My metabolism has sped up and I don’t suffer from the mid-morning decline I used to experience when I relied on caffeine to get me moving.

Another change I’ve made has been to eat a lot healthier. The afternoon cravings are always real but instead of reaching for sweets I’m grabbing a mixed bowl of blue berries and raspberries. They’re an antioxidant, which again has helped my skin, and they give me plenty of energy to power through the rest of my day.

I wanted to share a few secrets I've recently trialled which have given me radiant skin and cleared up my pimples.

We are what we eat and are skin will reveal all of our secrets. A good skincare routine is extremely important for radiant clear skin but sometimes it’s not enough.

While I’ve made changes to my diet to improve my skin, I’ve also been doing some research and found reports that that Skinoren cream clears up acne. I personally haven’t tried it, but it’s worth looking into prescribed options to give you the best kickstart to glowing skin.

I’ve also discovered a product called Cell Gel that is dubbed ‘a wonderful saving grace for skin that is stressed’. Its anti-ageing properties have left my skin feeling refreshed and tighter thanks to its incredible ingredients.

Like any health and beauty journey, it's all trials and errors. I’m just getting started but the most important thing is acknowledging that there are areas to improve and taking small steps to change them for the better.
