A healthy diet really will help you achieve healthy skin. We believe that your skin can only be as healthy as your diet. As the old saying goes, “you are what you eat,” and no words could be more accurate when it comes to the health of your skin. Your diet, and more importantly, your digestion, play a significant role in the health of what is our body’s largest organ, the skin.

“Yikes!” you may be thinking, “I’ve got that party tonight, I just ate a Tim Tam and I don’t want dry skin.” It’s highly unlikely, unless you have skin allergies, that your body will digest and manifest the Tim Tam’s palm oil onto your face before the evening, but, over time, if you continue to eat them along with a diet laden in nasties your digestions will suffer, and so will your skin.
Healthy Diet Tips
At Botáni, we like a quote we read that said: “the skin is the mirror of your digestive tract.” Sounds technical, but it’s simply suggesting that enough sabotaging of your diet, put simply as weakening your digestive system, can lead to all kinds of skin conditions, including dry skin. Improper digestion can lead to acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea and or any other breed of dermatitis. If you’re skin’s struggling with these right now, try our PhytoBody Wash and Olive Skin Serum for relief.
