Skin Care starts on the inside!


Our skin is our largest organ, and taking care of it is just as important as taking care of our other organs. Here are some tips for maintaining healthy, vibrant skin:


Water: Skin cells that are dehydrated become dry, tight and flaky. Make it a point to drink half your body weight in ounces. For example, a 150 lb. individual needs to drink 75 oz. of water.


Omega-3s: Health skin is a reflection of a healthy strong cellular membrane. It’s important to have a good supply of healthy fatty acids for the entire body, but Omega-3s are especially important for a healthy brain and healthy skin.


Collagen: Collagen is found throughout the body, in bones, skin, muscles, blood vessels and in the digestive system. It plays a large role in making us look youthful and healthy. As we age, the body produces less collagen, causing fine lines, wrinkles, saggy or stretchy skin, and slower healing of cuts and scars.

Bone broth is an excellent source of collagen. If you are supplementing, look a high quality, grass fed collagen like Great Lakes Wellness. Check out Dr. Jeremy’s YouTube video on Healthy Coffee to see one example of how you can add collagen to your diet.


Vitamin C: Helps to reduce damage from UV radiation as well as helping the body hold on to hydration.


Vitamin D3: 42% of Americans are deficient in Vitamin D3, which is essential for skin repair. See our sheet on Vitamin D3 for more information on this important vitamin.


Zinc: The body does not store zinc for long periods, so daily intake is needed to keep this mineral at optimal levels. The top layer of skin contains more zinc than any other layer, which helps the body grow new skin cells.
