30 Day Beautiful Skin Makeover

Updated on April 25, 2017

If you want soft, clear skin, start by examining your diet. The appearance of the skin is indicative of what is happening inside the body. Removing bad fats like canola oil and processed vegetable spreads and replacing them with helpful fats will be the key to improving your skin.

The skin regenerates itself every 30 days, so if you change your diet, you will notice the difference when your new skin cells appear. Use the following plan to help you achieve gorgeous skin. Make the changes to your lifestyle for the next 30 days and then see if you like your results.

1. Drink Extra Water

Water will help flush toxins. Aim for 10-12 8-oz glasses per day. Begin each morning by measuring water into a pitcher or big water bottle. This amount does not include the water you will drink during your workout or training. Drink additional water when you are exercising and keep this water separate from your regular water to avoid confusion. Bonus tip: Add lemon or lime to your water for extra flavor and cleansing.

2. Eat Salmon and Avocados

It’s the oils in avocados and salmon which make your skin look great. Purchase 2 avocados each week. Slice off one quarter of an avocado per day to get avocado’s nutrients without taking in too many calories. If you’re hands get messy from avocado, don’t wash it off! Simply rub it in to your hands. You can even smooth it onto your face for a quick all-natural face mask!

Eat one 4-5 oz. serving of salmon three times each week.

3. Use Natural Skin Care Products

Become familiar with the chemicals that are regularly used in skin care products, and avoid them. The use of chemicals in your products can be harsh on the skin, and is not good for your body. Your skin will most likely react better over time to natural products, since it is not building up a resistance to chemicals. If you don't have time to make your own, buy them natural from the health food store.


4. Zap the Pimple

When you feel a rash or pimple coming on, act quickly! You have a better chance of avoiding the bout altogether if you catch it early. Use one or all of the following options:


Quick Pimple Zappers
Fresh Slice of Strawberry
Fresh Slice of Apple
Tea Tree Oil
Oil of Oregano

Neck Care

  • Use same routine for neck as the face
  • Avoid spraying perfume on the neck, as it causes dryness and wrinkles

5. Sweat

Working out and sweating is by far the best approach to get clear, clean, radiant skin. When you work out, aim to sweat. Make sweating your top priority when you exercise. The more you sweat, the better. This will open pores, release toxins, and cause a radiant glow which will last all day. Workout daily.

6. Ditch Your Foundation

An attempt to cover blemishes and imperfections by caking on make-up will make skin problems worse. Foundation clogs pores, making it difficult for fresh air to reach your face and equally as difficult for your pores to expel bacteria.

7. Eat the Right Nuts

The oils and minerals in almonds, walnuts, and Brazil nuts make the skin beautiful and elastic. Many natural topical skin products contain these products, but you can get the same benefit by eating them regularly. Just don’t overdo it. Keep your nut consumption to about 5 each of walnuts and almonds per day plus 2-3 Brazil nuts. Eat raw, not roasted. Nuts are a high-nutrient, but high-calorie food. Peanuts and cashews are known to contain mold, so stick to almonds, walnuts, and Brazil nuts only.

8. Always Wash Face

Wash your face religiously morning and night. Never ever skip this step--even if your tired from a late night. Your skin will look much healthier in the morning. Even if you don’t wear make-up, your face accumulates dirt and bacteria very easily. Make sure your face is clean before sleeping, as this is an important skin renewal time.

Use a natural scrub or loofa brush once each week. A gentle scouring of the skin will help remove old dead skin cells, while leaving new skin cells intact. Removing the old dead layer will give you a younger, fresher look.

9. Eat Naturally

Avoid processed foods, especially fried foods. A clean and natural diet will help your body digest and process foods normally. When your body can’t handle certain foods, the skin tries to clear out the bad fats and toxins. If you eat healthy foods, your skin won’t be constantly trying to process chemicals and grease.

10. Sleep!

We all know what we look like when we don’t sleep. If you look tired, it’s probably because you are tired. Don't cheat yourself on beauty sleep. Sleep is your body’s time to cleanse. The skin is a major point of exit for toxins, so if you are not getting enough sleep, your skin will not be able to cleanse and create new cells.
