You are what you eat

The skin is the largest organ in the human body and is exposed to the elements at all times. As such it is a reflection of our health. This is why it is essential to nourish the skin not only from the outside, but also from the inside. At Abloom we believe that nutrition is an added factor that determines the wellbeing and condition of your skin.

 

Sugar and hormones

Eating a lot of fruit and vegetables is always a good idea, as they contain antioxidants that combat the signs of ageing. But you need to be careful of the amount of sugar you consume. Consuming sugar results in glycation where sugar molecules bond to elastin and collagen which leads to the breakdown of important proteins that are responsible for the elasticity and suppleness of your skin. The over-consumption of dairy products can also have an effect on your skin. Milk contains the growth hormone IGF-1 which stimulates the over-production of sebum and extra growth of skin cells. Excess sebum on the skin provides a feeding ground for bacteria, increasing your chance of developing acne and inflammation.
