Did you know that in addition to the obvious weight loss and general health effects that eating Paleo provides, a Paleo lifestyle can also help you achieve the youngest-looking, most vibrant skin and healthiest hair you’ve ever had? Keep reading and we’re going to explain more about eating paleo and its effects on skin.
When you opt into the Paleo lifestyle, you are leaving behind processed sugars and dairy, in addition to starches and refined oils. The skin experts agree: fats, oils, and sugars are known to cause acne and blemishes all over the body. The added hormones in processed foods can also disrupt normal body functions and can play a large role in various skin conditions. Therefore, it naturally follows that adhering to a Paleo lifestyle and eating clean has significant effects on anyone’s body, other than the muscle toning and weight loss aspects.
Paleo Magazine, in the April/May issue, published an article about the ways eating Paleo can heal Keratosis Pilaris (KP). This extremely common skin condition occurs when groups of skin cells aren’t properly keratinized. KP results in (which nearly everyone has either seen or dealt with before) red, bumpy rashes on the skin that are relatively harmless, but still unsightly and not smooth. KP typically manifests when a person has a vitamin A deficiency, but this essentially becomes a non-issue when a person begins their journey into the Paleo lifestyle. Foods rich in vitamin A include broccoli, and many other vegetables, lots of fruits, many types of fish, among many others that are highly encouraged within the Paleo lifestyle. Evolve’s Paleo Balls contain dried fruits that are rich in Vitamin A, plus they’re delicious. Make sure you try them today!
Countless other Paleos have noticed that the additional zinc and iron from the protien-rich meat they are consuming has dramatically increased the quality of their hair, nails, and skin. Paleo foods typically reduce inflammation and can help alleviate inflammatory skin conditions like acne, eczema, or psoriasis. Many have also noticed that the general tone of their skin has evened out and their skin is significantly less oily, leaving them with smooth and younger-looking skin.
