The expert's advice for glowing skin

What is the opinion of Dr. Erica Congiu, biologist, nutritionist, coordinator and head of, on this subject?

“Cosmetics provides us with various strategies to obtain a luminous complexion, but I like to remember that alongside these products, even a correct diet helps maintain a glowing and healthy skin. And by "proper nutrition" I mean a plant-based diet with a sufficient supply of calories and a wide variety of whole plant foods, including those rich in fatty acids. I like to reiterate it because the "myth" of the sickly and greyish vegan arises with the arrival of extremely hypocaloric and consequently poor nutrient diets that are outrageous. "
It is no coincidence, continues the doctor, that it was coined the term vegan glow, a phenomenon that is often experienced when switching to a healthy vegan diet: “The skin seems to shine and the complexion becomes brighter; it is nothing more than the consequence of a better tissue oxygenation, thanks to the greater intake of ANTIOXIDANTS and VITAMIN C which favor blood circulation ".
However, if your" vegan glow "still does not satisfy you, Dr. Congiu remembers that it is possible to resort to some small natural and low cost expedient to obtain a healthy and luminous skin:


Often the skin is dull because it is covered with a layer of dead skin. Nothing serious: a very simple scrub with a mixture of brown sugar and COCONUT OIL removes the skin and leaves the skin moisturized but not shiny. Alternatively, you can buy ecobio commercial scrubs or chemical peels with glycolic or mandelic acid. The latter, depending on the concentration of acids, must be applied by qualified personnel, not more than once a week.


It seems that turmeric solves every problem, and actually it can also improve the complexion: for an illuminating mask just mix ½ teaspoon of turmeric powder, ½ teaspoon of organic apple vinegar, 1 tbsp of molasses, ½ teaspoon of milk or vegetable yogurt, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice. Hold for 15 minutes and rinse. Repeat the treatment once or twice a week


The skin shines when it is well hydrated. Once again it must be remembered that the bulk of the work is done from within, drinking enough and consuming fresh foods rich in water such as fruit and vegetables. At the same time we must avoid substances that "dehydrate" like nicotine and alcohol. Moisturizing creams are a valid aid to maintain and restore hydration in the most superficial part of the skin, most exposed to the elements.


You will surely have experienced the "dullness" post "good nights". It is during the night that our skin regenerates and re-oxygenates itself, but if sleep is lost the skin will become increasingly dull and asphyxiated. Make sure you sleep at least 7 hours a night, in an environment that favors rest, possibly spreading lavender essential oil.
