I used to have horrible skin. Acne, oil, flaking in the winter. The list goes on. Having bad skin is really a tough pill to swallow. Especially for young girls.

My skin gradually improved as I aged and with trial and error. The three biggest things that affect my skin:


1 – Moisturizerazation

2 – Hydration

3 – Diet

It’s funny, you think that if you have oily skin you need to strip it of all moisture with harsh products. When I started a skincare regimen that required morning and nightly moisturizers, my oil output dramatically decreased because my skin was no longer overproducing to compensate.

About a year ago I started measuring my water intake. I was shooting for around 100 oz to a gallon a day. I’m going to speak on this in the future, but I no longer get dry skin, chapped lips or cracked hands during any time of the year. Its CRAZY how much better my skin looks. Also, it’s FREE. You’re best beauty product is fo free, y’all.

Diet. I have always been nutrition conscious. My focus has dramatically changed from being calorie conscious to be nutrient conscious over the past few years and it shows. Especially in my skin. By eating a diet that is packed with vitamins, minerals, proteins and healthy fats, my skin is able to regenerate and it looks so much healthier I can’t believe it. I never left the house without a full face of makeup. Most days now, I create my own tinted moisturizer and I’m usually good to go. I don’t really use everyday concealer anymore.

I love smoothie bowls because you can pack them with good for your ingredients, blend and slurp up the benefits. This is a recipe I’ve been repeating a few times a week lately and I’ve been loving it as a breakfast or snack.

Smoothie bowls are so fun because you get to go crazy with your favorite toppings and play with your creations.

    Ooh I love smoothie bowl. I’ve never thought about mixing the flavors of peanut butter and coconut, but I like both so I bet it’d be good!

    I agree with you about water and nutrient though – it’s crazy how many skin and health issues can be helped or fixed through simple diet changes. I’m glad it’s worked for your skin!
