HEALTHY SKIN TIPS: lifestyle tips for better skin (science-backed)

Healthy skin comes from a healthy diet, lifestyle and good skincare. In this video, which is the second part of a three-part healthy skin series, I will talk about specific lifestyle tips for healthy skin. These are tips I follow personally and they are all science-backed as well.

I hope these tips help you achieve clearer, glowing and more radiant skin. If you have any major skin issues though such as eczema, psoriasis, etc. it is always a good idea with work with both a dermatologist and an integrative medicine practitioner to get to the root of the issue.

The tips in this video are geared towards reducing acne, breakouts and skin redness as well as reducing the signs of premature aging. I also talk about sun damage and the importance of wearing sunscreen.

Even people who don't wear sunscreen can have low vitamin D. So it's a good idea anyway to get levels tested by a doctor. See study below. I was vitamin D deficient despite not wearing sunscreen for years.
