There is a substantial, if not profound, link between skin health and proper nutrition.

The importance of a healthy, nutrient-rich diet cannot be underestimated when it comes to maintaining a clear complexion. If you have skin problems such as pimples, colour problems or blotches, then it’s time to address your diet and make sure your body is getting all the nutrients it needs.


For starters, it is essential to stop eating starchy carbohydrates and replace them with superior alternatives like protein, vitamins and mineral-rich quinoa. If you can’t live without starchy carbs, try to focus on eating just small portions of brown rice and whole grains instead.

Secondly, drop all cow’s milk products and replace them with goat’s and sheep’s milk products. Next, make sure you get more essential fatty acids in your diet, such as hemp oil, which can even be used topically. Now, let’s take a look at various skin conditions in more detail.



If you have acne, you are not alone. More than 90% of teenagers have to deal with acne in some fashion, and
this condition may continue into adulthood. Hormonal disturbances produced by consuming sugar, starchy foods, fast foods and processed foods are key dietary factors responsible for this skin condition.

So how do you fight back? Stop eating carbs and products made from cow’s milk and replace them with healthy options. Secondly, work to take care of your skin by opting for healthy skincare products that have very few ingredients. While sweat should be washed away immediately, don’t scrub your skin, as this can cause inflammation.



Psoriasis has many potential causes. Current research indicates that immune system response plays a vital role. Try eliminating cow’s milk products and starchy carbs to see improved results. Magnesium oil may help too.


Rosacea is a skin condition that can vary considerably in severity. It is chronic in nature and involves inflammation across the face including the forehead, chin, cheeks, nose and eyelid area. Rosacea is an immune system reaction to cow’s milk products and starchy carbs, as the body is attempting to remove the toxic compounds found in processed foods. CurcuminX4000 may help.


Eczema is a blanket term for many conditions. Atopic eczema, which causes the skin to become inflamed or irritated, is the most common. Processed foods are once again the main culprit in this skin condition. Eliminating starchy carbohydrates and cow’s milk products should help to address eczema. Hemp Oil and Active Life may help too.

Dry skin

Many people struggle with the problem of dry skin. Potential contributors include harsh soaps, washing powders, the misuse of chemically-laden lotions and moisturisers and taking too many long and hot showers. Conditions such as malnutrition, psoriasis, hypothyroidism and diabetes may also be significant contributory factors.



Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) has two important roles in the body. Firstly it produces biological energy (ATP) inside the cells and, secondly, as an antioxidant it helps to neutralise harmful free radicals, which are one of the causes of ageing. Under perfect conditions, the body can produce as much CoQ10 as it needs. However, various factors, such as ageing, stress and some medications, can lower the body’s levels of CoQ10. As a result the cells lose their ability to withstand stress and regenerate themselves. When used in skincare products, CoQ10 may help to boost skin repair and regeneration and reduce free radical damage.



There are a range of supplements that can help with dry skin, including Hemp Oil, Essential Digestive Plus, Ancient Minerals Magnesium, CurcuminX4000 and Derma Q-Gel® as a moisturiser.

Your skin is a key barrier against disease and illness, and keeping it healthy is vital. Ideally, you should treat these issues at a grassroots level and only consider using drugs on your skin as an absolute last resort.
