“Because skin acts as an external barrier, it is directly exposed to environmental stress, such as sunlight and pollutants. Excessive exposure to the sun’s UV radiation generates free radicals in the skin, and when their levels exceed the organ’s natural anti- oxidant defenses, oxidative damage occurs,” states Dr. Cates. “That effect can present as premature aging, so to counteract this, we should use skin care products with high levels of skin-loving antioxidants.”
Kim Kardashian was thrilled to include and even shared with her audience on Instagram so naturally we were as well! We had a moment to chat with Dr. Trevor Cates to discuss her top tips for achieving clean skin from within!
1. Make DIY Skin Care. Here are a few of my favorite ingredients:
Avocado is hydrating and nourishing, with naturally occurring vitamins A and E—it’s great for masks.
Honey is healing, hydrating, clarifying, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and
pH balancing. It’s great in skin cleansers, masks, and exfoliants. Remember to use raw (unpasteurized) honey; you don’t want to kill this ingredient’s beneficial bacteria.
Oats have moisturizing, anti-inflammatory, and healing properties. They’re perfect in skin cleansers and masks.
2. Eat more vegetables.
Vegetables come straight from nature and are perfectly made to nurture our skin from within. Their high antioxidant, vitamin, mineral, and fiber contents make them one of the most important food groups for skin health. Most people don’t eat enough vegetables. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), less than 14 percent of Americans consume the recommended amount of 2 to 3 cups (weight varies) of vegetables daily. Stop for a moment, and add up the number of vegetable servings you ate yesterday. Did you have six or more servings?
I recommend at least 3 cups of vegetables per day. You may be wondering how you’ll fit all that in. Here’s how: Eat at least 2 servings of veggies with each of your three meals, eat extras for snacks, and you’ve easily surpassed the recommended minimum.
“It’s important to know there are alternatives to toxic skin care ingredients that often prove healthier and less risky than those commonly used in commercial lines. So don’t think you have to toss everything you own and abandon your current hygiene routine completely,” explains Dr. Cates.
