Probably every day, you gaze in the mirror, but are you able to see what is happening?

Our external reflection provides us with information about our internal state. This is so that a variety of bodily functions, such as the health and operation of the digestive system, liver, and adrenal glands, can affect the quality of our skin, hair, and nails, or what I like to refer to as our “beauty parts.” Here are some things your dull skin may be attempting to inform you about your internal health.

A requirement for additional nutrients

Nothing on this earth can substitute a wholesome diet that emphasizes giving our bodies the nutrition they require to thrive. Try focusing on full, natural foods with a focus on colorful vegetation if your skin is appearing dull, weary, or is ageing quickly. This will not only fill your body with antioxidants that your skin loves, but it will also support the biochemical processes in your body that keep you alive and give you energy and vigor.

Vitamins A, C, and E are especially beneficial for the skin. They all contribute to the general health of our skin, and they are abundant in real food. Vitamins C and E help to protect the skin from premature aging by reducing the damage caused by free radicals, which are produced by a variety of factors, including pollution from various sources that may be in what we eat, drink, breathe, or absorb. Collagen is a protein that keeps the skin’s structure in place. It can only be made with vitamin C. Citrus fruits, kiwifruit, capsicum, and vegetables from the Brassica family are excellent sources of vitamin C. In contrast, nuts, seeds, and egg yolks are good sources of vitamin E.

Because vitamin A is essential for maintaining the regular structure and cell turnover in our bodies, it is possible that you will experience certain skin-related symptoms when your vitamin A consumption is insufficient, such as a dry, flaky scalp and/or complexion. Beta-carotene, which your body can turn into vitamin A, is abundant in orange foods, but vitamin A has several health benefits, some of which are skin-related. The mineral zinc is adored and required by your skin. If you have acne, notice that wounds take longer than usual to heal, or scar easily, it is very crucial. Zinc helps clear skin by regulating oil production, which may help avoid acne whether consumed in diet or as a supplement.

It is important for the overall healing of the skin, including the healing of any acne scars. Oysters (from clean, unpolluted water), red meat (ideally grass-fed, organic), and seeds, especially sunflower and pumpkin seeds, are food sources of zinc.

The skin’s rock stars are essential fatty acids (EFAs). The healthy fatty acids in whole meals help to nourish your skin. If your skin is dry and/or irritated often with white heads and black heads, you may not have enough EFAs, which are important for the natural oil barrier of the skin. Cracked heels are another sign that you are deficient in EFAs. Oily fish, flaxseeds, and walnuts have EFAs of the omega 3 variety, whereas evening primrose oil, borage oil, and entire blackcurrants include EFAs of the omega 6 kind.

Addressing stress is necessary.

Stress can have a negative impact on our appearance in a variety of ways, including through facial expressions, a fatigued or dull aspect of the skin, breakouts, or an aggravation of an inflammatory skin condition. Your body’s primary attention will be on the processes that are vital for your survival because stress hormones signal to your body that your life is in danger, rather than non-essential processes like the “beauty parts” — maintaining the health of your skin, hair, and nails.


The quantity and quality of the water we drink has a significant impact on a lot of aspects of our health. Chronic unintentional dehydration has been linked to a number of degenerative disorders, as well as to discomfort and inflammation in the body. A key part of any health and/or beauty plan is making sure you drink enough high-quality water to help your body avoid diseases like these. The amount of water we drink has a big effect on how well our skin is able to hold on to moisture. Consider boosting your daily intake of this vital hydrator if you aren’t getting close to 2 litres of water each day to see whether it affects how vibrant your skin looks.

Respect your liver

Most people know that too much sun, tanning beds, and smoking all make the skin age faster. However, have you ever thought about how your liver health may also affect how shiny you are? The liver is a powerful organ that affects every part of our health. When it comes to your hormone balance, energy, vitality, and the clarity of your skin and eyes, it is one of the big guns. Together with the gallbladder, the liver works nonstop to help get rid of old hormones, pesticides, and other potentially harmful substances that the body no longer needs.

We want a content liver that operates effectively if we want vibrant, radiant skin. Before the liver can get rid of something harmful to the skin, like some synthetic ingredients in traditional skin care products, it must first detoxify the substance. We can consume a wide range of chemicals that contribute to its burden. Alcohol, trans fats, refined carbohydrates, and synthetic substances like those found in some ultra-processed foods, pesticides, and herbicides are all examples of what I call “liver loaders.”

Our liver can work quite hard, depending on the way we live! A great first step toward glowing skin is to consider how much you are currently consuming or exposed to those toxins and reduce your intake.
