What we feed our bodies has a significant impact on our skin.
Each skin-friendly Bestow recipe avoids heating and congesting foods (which can aggravate skin conditions) and uses soothing, cooling alternatives instead. This is essential if you want to overcome skin problems like acne, rosacea, dermatitis or dull, congested skin. Instead of focussing on what you can’t eat, you can enjoy what you can eat.
What are heating foods?
Certain foods can heat your skin, causing it to appear reddened and sensitised. These foods are called ‘vasodilators’ and they heat your skin by increasing the blood flow through your fine capillary system. Coffee, alcohol, spicy foods, chilli, oranges and strawberries are all common culprits.
If you are prone to red or sensitive skin you need to avoid ‘heating foods’. Instead, bestow your skin with strength and vitality by choosing cooling, soothing alternatives. Bestow Within I provides a comprehensive overview of heating foods and their skin cooling alternatives.
What are congesting foods?
When the oil (sebum) in your skin is flowing as it should it plays an important role in protecting your skin and keeping it strong, supple and smooth. However, if your skin has a tendency to congest, congesting foods in your diet will cause the sebum to thicken and block your pores, resulting in bumps and breakouts.
If you suffer from acne, you need to avoid congesting foods. Common culprits are ice-cream, nougat, chocolate, cheese, milo and protein powders. Bestow Within I provides a comprehensive overview of congesting foods and their skin smoothing alternatives.
