Beautify your everyday menu

You need a healthy gut to keep your skin healthy and beautiful. The same goodies in the fridge that benefit your immune system and digestive tract also make your skin look and feel smooth and silky. That means antioxidant-packed berries and greens, protein-rich foods such as eggs, and fatty fish as well as nuts and seeds that are loaded with healthy fats.

This means playing the long beauty game! You’ll need to stick to your healthy diet for the long haul if you want to see the desired results in the mirror. Your skin will certainly become healthier, and it will naturally detox itself from the inside when you consume the right foods.

Choose gentle, natural, and organic

Although beauty isn’t skin-deep at all, and it heavily depends on nutrition, exercise, and sleep, you also need to be mindful of what you apply on your skin. Just like you should aim for local, seasonal, organic produce that wasn’t grown with excessive amounts of pesticides and other chemicals, the same logic applies to your skin care routine.

Choose beauty products based on natural ingredients – the fewer ingredients in total, the better. That makes the products simpler and less risky to cause allergic reactions and skin sensitivities. Just be sure you’re applying gentle, natural products that are suitable for your skin type and any preexisting health conditions such as eczema. Pure coconut oil is a great example of a kitchen essential that is also a beauty staple!

Try lymphatic drainage

The lymphatic system is part of your overall immune system, and while it does its job well on its own, you can definitely boost its detoxing capacity to purify your skin and reclaim that glow. Our detox bundle can introduce you to dry brushing as well as the cleansing power of bath salts.

To make your drainage ritual even more effective, you can use LymphActiv based on numerous natural ingredients. That way, you can create an all-inclusive approach that cleanses your skin through lymphatic drainage inside and out, with the right massage methods as well as supplements.

Drink up

Perhaps coffee gives you that energy jolt when you rise and shine, but have you considered replacing coffee with a more hydrating alternative, such as tea or lemon water? Essentially, your body depends on water to flush out any toxins.

Without proper hydration, you risk getting pimples, blackheads, dry patches, and a variety of skin problems, including premature signs of ageing. So, in addition to plenty of water, reach for healthy beverages during the day instead of coffee.

Get that beauty sleep

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: sleep is your body’s only time to recover and detox properly. Disrupting your own sleep patterns can lead to insomnia, feeling fatigued and sluggish, and not to mention the impact on your pores. Let’s face it, eyebags and dark circles don’t look good on anyone.

To help your body detox, make sure you get enough beauty sleep every night. Relax before bed to fall asleep easily and start reducing your pre-sleep screen time. It will increase the quality of your sleep and allow you to rest properly for the next day.

To look and feel beautiful, you need to take excellent care of more than just your skin. Lovely skin products are a great start. But creating a careful meal plan, a good sleeping routine, and pampering your skin with the occasional massage can make all the difference. Get in touch with us for a consultation and we can start crafting a lifestyle plan to help you detox and beautify in one go!

What our
patients
are saying

Always get clarity and understanding…

Dianne has always help me understand the complicated issues of hypothyroidism, understanding the symptoms and long term effects. She has helped with my dietary needs and overall well being. Highly recommend if you are still feeling the symptoms even if your on traditional medications.

The best part of talking with new patients…

I have worked with Dianne Hinton at Calmglow for 4 years. I receive calls from new patients every day. I think the best part of talking with new patients is that I give them the knowledge and hope in knowing that I–like all of Dianne’s staff–was her patient before her employee. I think that says a lot about Dianne as a practitioner. She is very compassionate and caring towards each individual patient.

— Cindy Toste

Diane Hinton saved my life!

After over a year of traditional doctors misdiagnosing and mistreating my illness, Diane immediately got it right. She identified the root cause of my illness, and I went from being chronically ill to healed and healthy in less than a year. Diane listens to and cares for her patients like no one I’ve ever known. I highly recommend her for diagnosing the true health issues, rather than just treating your symptoms.

My husband and I just love Calmglow …

Just what is Functional Medicine?  Simply put…. I call it getting to the “cause” of a health issue. Rashes, High Pressure, Arthritis, Obesity, Insomnia, and Fatigue are a few of the issues she’s helped us with.  But what I really like best is; she doesn’t say “here, take this pill” and it’ll “treat the symptoms”.  She treats the “cause” of those symptoms so they truly go away without requiring “pills”.  Our bodies are healing, and the we feel we’re the healthiest we’ve been in a long time! What we’ve discovered about the manner in which our bodies “had been” functioning previously, from the in depth tests she recommends, was pretty astounding. We’ve learned so much since starting to see her as our practitioner, I would never choose to go back to an Allopathic doctor!
