82- Nourishing Your Skin with Casey Poe-Campbell

We hear the saying all the time, beauty is on the inside, it isn't what is on the outside. While most often when we use this saying, we are talking about how great a person is or considerate they are based off their actions.

But today, we are actually talking about what we visually see on the outside. The beauty industry is worth over $500 billion, and the value is continually climbing.

To top it off, almost all of the products available in the beauty industry are what you can directly put onto your skin or hair to make them look healthier. But what if there are better ways of nourishing your skin?

This is where the "beauty is on the inside" part comes into play. The health of your skin and hair is influenced why the health of your body.


How Does Improving Our Insides Help Our Skin and Hair?

The beauty industry has taught us that to have silky smooth hair, or wrinkle-free skin, we need to be using all of these products.

But what if you threw away all those products, and replaced it with good digestion, healthy food options, and a fantastic microbiome??

The way our skin looks is in direct correlation with how well our body is functioning (most of the time). Our bodies are designed to reject things that aren't the best for it, and get it out any way possible. This could be through our urine and feces, or through our skin.

For instance, when I eat dairy (which I have a known sensitivity to), I develop really bad back acne. My body pushes the inflammation out through my skin. Once I remove the dairy, my skin goes back to being clean again.

In this episode, we talk about how you can take a multi-step approach to nourishing your skin from both internal and external approaches!
