Living the Global Glow lifestyle means glowing from within. In this case, eating beauty foods.

Clearing up your skin can be a challenge, for some, it is a lifelong struggle. As a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach & HCA Licensed Health Coach™, I always recommend that my clients who struggle with bad skin, to first take the Super Elixir daily, and second, eat these foods. Trust me, with time, you will achieve that alkaline glow.

I always start off my day with The Super Elixir! It is my go-to, all-in-one Super beauty supplement that helps me achieve and maintain glowing skin & complexion as well as strong hair and nails. It’s immune boosting properties help to reduce inflammation and free radicals, ultimately slowing down the aging process. Plus, it helps repair collagen.

The Super Elixir is a powerhouse bio-active live formula that I take every morning on an empty stomach, ensuring maximum results, all while putting my body in an alkaline state.

It is also the perfect add-on ingredient for your favorite smoothie. Check out some of our favorite smoothie recipes in my JK Eat Journal.

That being said, you should fuel your body with complexion-loving foods because that alkaline glow comes, first and foremost, from within.

Here are my Top 10:

1. Cruciferous veggies

Kale, cauliflower, broccoli, Brussel sprouts and cabbage are incredibly high in antioxidants. They have sulfur and carotenoid-containing compounds that actively  help to clear your skin & support your gut.

2. Turmeric

Turmeric is the superfood of superfoods. It is filled with both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties (an absolute blessing for your skin). I recommend taking approximately 1 generous tsp of turmeric a day. Add it either in a home cooked meal or in a smoothie!

3. Cucumber

There is a reason why I always add 1 or 2 small cucumbers to my green smoothies. Yes, cucumbers are a go-to when you want to reduce puffiness in the face. It’s healing properties don’t end there! Cucumbers are filled with water, helping your body digest better and detoxify. Rich in Vitamin C, cucumbers help soothe irritated, swollen skin.

4. Flaxseeds

When you think of ‘flaxseed’, think ‘omega-3’. Omega-3 is a must if you want to achieve the best skin of your life. It helps your cell walls stay strong and intact, while helping to reduce inflammation. They are great for balancing blood sugar and managing sugar cravings. Flaxseeds are an excellent way to keep your digestive system on track.

5. Wild organic salmon

Like flaxseeds, wild organic salmon is rich in long chain omega-3 fats. Omega-3 helps our bodies reduce the amount of inflammatory substances, all while decreasing clogged pores, fine lines and wrinkles. Eat your salmon ladies and gents!

6. Garlic

What’s not to love about garlic?! It makes any meal taste 10 times better and it helps you get glowing skin. What else could you ask for? Historically, it is known as being the go-to cure for everything from headaches to insomnia. Plus, it helps the liver detoxify. It is anti-fungal, anti-aging and it helps the skin stay smooth. 

7. Avocado

I know… it seems as though avocados can literally do anything. Avocado’s truly are the best because they are so rich in essential fatty acids. That’s why this little fruit works magic on your hair, skin & nails plus helps manage sugar cravings.

8. Papaya

First off, papaya tastes incredible. High in enzymes and vitamin C, papaya really helps your skin glow. Add it to your smoothie or eat it fresh with lime juice, this exotic fruit is worth it. 

9. Tomatoes

Tomatoes are filled with an antioxidant called lycopene. Lycopene is an absolute must when it comes to fighting free radicals. It also helps your skin fight sun damage. Here’s a tip: lycopene is best absorbed in your body when the tomatoes are cooked. So, pan fry those beauties, and say hello to gorgeous skin!

The Super Elixir Alkalizing Formula

10. The Super Elixir

Last, but certainly not least, the Super Elixir is a must. Formulated using a combination of 40+ naturally derived ingredients including whole-foods, herbal extracts, vitamins, minerals and pre & probiotics. The careful mix of pre and probiotics support digestion and create a healthy gut pH balance which equals less bloating and a flatter tummy. The Super Elixir will give your body that extra boost it needs to achieve that ultimate alkaline glow. It helps balance the acidity in your blood, while helping your skin lock in moisture and properly fuel your cells. Adding the Super Elixir to your daily routine and making sure you are eating your cruciferous greens will put you on the path to glowing skin.

Remember, skincare may help, but they won’t give you the glowing results you want. Beauty starts from within!
