Of course, each of us is unique and each concern and cause may vary, but nutrition and lifestyle can play a massive part. ⁠
⁠
Here are 5 foods to revitalize your skin from the inside out: 👇 ⁠
🥑 Avocado: Rich in healthy fats, vitamins E and C, and antioxidants, avocados hydrate and protect your skin, promoting elasticity and preventing wrinkles.⁠
🐠 Salmon: Packed with omega-3 fatty acids, salmon reduces inflammation, keeps skin moisturized, and helps maintain a youthful glow.⁠
🍓 Berries: High in antioxidants like vitamins C and A, berries combat free radicals, support collagen production, and reduce signs of aging.⁠
🥔 Sweet Potato: Loaded with beta-carotene, sweet potatoes convert to vitamin A in the body, enhancing skin cell turnover and providing a natural glow.⁠
🍵 Green Tea: Rich in polyphenols and catechins, green tea reduces inflammation, protects against sun damage, and improves overall skin texture.⁠

From all the fad diets throughout the years, it’s probably clear that no one diet works for everyone alike! ⁠
⁠
To understand nutrition, it is important to understand that each of us is unique. Our biochemical individuality means we all have a different makeup and need different things at different times in our lives to thrive.⁠
⁠
With this being said, several broad principles are supported by a significant amount of scientific research, which you can learn and implement in your daily life to thrive. Christa Orecchio, one of our expert teachers, educates us on the concepts of bio-individuality and tips to nurture our personalized health. ⁠

It is predicted that by the year 2050 about half of adults will have at least one chronic disease. We know now more than ever, so many of these diseases have preventable lifestyle and nutritional factors. 💔 ⁠
⁠
Although wellness has entered the cultural mainstream, our society has still never been sicker. Unfortunately, we aren't taught about real nutrition in school. We have a medical profession that is rarely trained to use food as medicine, and the multi-billion dollar fast-food and pharmaceutical industries thrive on misleading consumers.⁠
