    Does Diet Really Affect Skin Health?

    Holistic health is a beautiful thing. Take care of your body, and it will take care of you! We see more and more people taking the time and effort to eat well, exercise, hydrate, and get eight hours a night.

    However, when it comes to skin health, simply eating a proper diet will not guarantee you healthy, beautiful skin. The mindset that drinking plenty of water and eating some blueberries will clear up your skin conditions is not only incorrect, but it can also be dangerous.

    Today, we will explore how diet can have a material impact on skin health, how to make positive dietary choices, and the truth behind the limitations of diet's impact on your skin.

    Can You Really Change Your Complexion?

    How many times have you leaned in close to the mirror . . . . and cringed?
    Do you hide under a deep, wide-brimmed hat pulled way down low?
    Have you ever seen someone's flawless skin in passing and felt a pang of jealousy?

    It doesn't have to be that way.

    You're stuck in your skin, but not with it. You really can change your complexion.

    A visit to your derm shouldn't be just because you found a pre-cancerous lesion you need to have removed.

  3. Competition lifestyle - how it changes your skin and what it does to your body

    Competition lifestyle - how it changes your skin and what it does to your body

    Having a hobby is good for the soul. Bonus points if your hobby is one that is healthy for your body, too. Competitive athletes, and bodybuilders in particular, put a great deal of stress on themselves to be the leanest, most muscular, strongest, fastest, most cut . . . . it goes on and on. Maintaining that physique is difficult enough through the season, but with the pressure of keeping within your weight range, diet and exercise become a tightrope balancing act.

    So what does all that do to your body, and your skin especially? Competitive bodybuilding tends to be great for your body, but not so much for your skin. The lifestyle can be difficult for the largest organ of your body and skincare for athletes sometimes requires special considerations.

    The Manliest Of Men Should Care For Their Skin, Too

    It doesn't matter how burly you are, how long your beard, or how high your man bun. It doesn't matter if you drive a KingRanch F-350 or a Mazda Miata. Men, you have skin. And just like the engine under your hood, it requires care and maintenance if you want to get the most life out of it.

    Taking good care of your skin should be second nature: like eating a good breakfast, enjoying a healthy run, or laughing at a belly-ripping joke. But it doesn't need to be difficult or time-consuming. A commitment to taking care of your skin doesn't mean you need to spend an eternity in front of your bathroom vanity every day, lamenting over the size of your pores and the lack of "beautiful glow." It doesn't require a desire to be the next GQ model.

    It just requires some forethought and a decision to make it happen.

    There are a few basic differences

    How Does Lack of Sleep Affect Your Skin?

    Being out on the town with your friends, mixing it up, enjoying the company, the music, the lights. Or perhaps you weren't having such a great time. Maybe the baby was up most of the night with a cough and fever and just couldn't be consoled.

    Whatever your reasoning, it all boils down to you didn't sleep very well last night and the effects are showing. You have that groggy, heavy-headed, feet-dragging, day-is-never-going-to-end feeling.

    You may be able to guzzle down enough coffee and energy drinks and work in just enough jumping jacks to keep yourself plugging along until it's finally time to call it a day, but what's happening on your skin is a different story. How can you perk your face up again?
