It’s a time to refresh. Flowers will come into bloom. Spring rains will sweep many parts of the country. It’s a time for new life and new beginnings. Many of us will start to rethink our New Year’s resolutions and look for opportunities to rev up our diet and exercise plans. While you’re at it, why not go a step further and take a good, hard look at your skin. Recently, research scientists have focused on the correlation between what we put in our bodies and how that impacts our skin. Springtime is the perfect time to assess our health, specifically focusing on our overall skin health. They say the eyes are the windows to the world. I say the skin is the window to our well-being. You’ve heard the saying that we are what we eat. Scientists now have clear data proving that it’s true. We here at Healthy Magazine strive to help you be the best version of yourself. This important research tells us that this is an area of our lives we need to revamp and improve upon. As you prepare to plant seeds and ready for your gardens for an abundance of new growth, take some time to reflect on how you’re cultivating your own personal health. Are you getting enough hydration to keep your system flowing as it should and to promote soft, smooth skin and lessen elasticity? Have you cut back on skin and organ damaging caffeine? Is it time to reclaim your healthy, glowing skin by limiting your alcohol consumption? Those are just a few of the changes that should be made for optimal health well beyond this season. For instance, dairy and sugar wreak havoc on your skin. They may be yummy to eat, but they will leave you with blemishes. Salt leaves your eyes puffy, not to mention the damage it does to your heart. There are countless other foods and drinks that aren’t doing anything to keep you healthy. Take a few minutes, open the refrigerator and be honest with yourself. Are you doing everything possible to make sure you remain in tip-top shape? If the answer is no, know that this month we’ve got you covered. We’re here to help you transition from the winter blahs and spring into a new venture, a fresh start, and a fresh, clean way of living that will make you proud to look in the mirror. As Spring rolls in, know that we’ll be with you every step of the way. /HEALTHYMAGAZINE @HEALTHYVALLEY /HEALTHYMAGAZINEONLINE / HEALTHYMAG08 | ph. 305-900-7009 | Healthy Magazine is a free monthly publication.
