And if you’re a person struggling with any type of skin issue or just in general, you want to have beautiful glowing skin. We’re going to talk about some of our top tips today. So let’s go ahead and jump right in.
We’re going to talk about five keys to anti-aging and having perfect glowing skin.
And so, the number one thing that you need to start doing right away to transform the health of your skin is.
Healthy fats, and there are many types of fats
I recommend you get them in your diet every day.
Let’s talk a little bit about the taboo saturated fats
Short-chain fatty acids are great for the gut, and by the way, the skin is a mirror of your needs. It’s a great way to show how healthy you are. Short-chain fatty acids are found in butter, even a more concentrated source in ghee. (1) (2)
I know you love ghee. I loved ghee. It’s perfect for you. Ghee is clarified butter, and it’s a powerful food and remedy consumed throughout India and around the world.
Those are short-chain fatty acids. Medium-chain primarily comes from coconut oil, and palm oil and red palm oil also have vitamin E, which is excellent for the skin. It can be a little messy, though when you consume or cook with the red palm oil, it can stain horrible.
Coconut oil and red palm oil fell out of favor 50 years ago when that saturated fat causes heart disease was out there. Well, Saturated fat might actually keep your heart healthy. In fact, we believe it does.
So you want saturated fats, coconut, coconut oil, palm oil, look for organic virgin or unprocessed, you want butter grass-fed organic, and ghee. And then we have monounsaturated fats coming from olives in olive oil, macadamia nuts, you’ve got sesame seeds, peanuts have monounsaturated oils, and avocados are a great source.
And then we have Omega-3s, two types. From fish, fatty fish in particular salmon herring, mackerel, sardines, and fatty tuna. You’ve got Omega-3s from walnuts, chia seeds, and flax seeds and their oils, and you can take affixes, of course, that have EPA and DHA. (3)(4)
And probably, and you asked me this before, my favorite source of fats because it has phospholipids, it has squalene, and many other fatty acid components, its caviar or fish roe. And it’s not just for the wealthy.
Caviar is relatively affordable when you buy it from the right places. And it’s really, really beneficial. A little high in sodium or salt, but if you can get either salmon roe or any caviar type with no preservatives and colors, it not only gives you omega-3 fats. It provides you with Vitamin E, Vitamin D, and phospholipids, which help drive the fats into your system.
Those are amazing for your skin. Egg yolk is also a great prominence of fat, and get this here’s a tip. When I see people that have skin issues, I recommend an egg yolk facial mask. I don’t know if you’ve heard of this, but not only does it have antioxidants, but it also pulls out impurities.
And I believe that when you consume eggs internally, incredibly raw, and another program, we’ll tell you how to do that properly. Eggs actually act as a toxin sponge and can pull junk out of your body.
But if you are strong enough to wear egg on your face, give it a try. Eggs are good internally, and they’re right on your face, especially if they’re pasture-raised.
Rubbing that on the skin, it’s incredible. I know we’re going to talk about some natural beauty tips when we jump in and talk about essential oils. Yeah, I’m not to be here when the person who rubbed turmeric on their face calls back in and says, “How do I get it off?” You can talk to him about that one. I’ll stick with the egg yolk.
All right, let’s jump in here, so five keys to anti-aging, number two, are my absolute favorite topics. We will talk about the best essential oils for supporting healthy skin and the natural anti-aging process.
And I’ll tell you I’m a huge fan of essential oils. I’m going to start off talking about some of my favorite essential oils. So I’m a massive fan of geranium and geranium rose.
Geranium actually works through naturally hydrating and moisturizing your skin. So geranium is one of my favorites. I love myrrh essential oil. We know myrrh was used in the Bible. In fact, when we hear the story of the wise men bringing gold, frankincense, and myrrh to the baby Jesus, some researchers believe that myrrh has been used by the entire family, but potentially by Mary as well. (5)
In fact, myrrh during those days was used to prevent infection, it was used to balance hormones. We know Queen Esther, it’s referenced in the Bible that she used six oils, but one of those they mentioned was myrrh essential oil and floral oils as a natural beauty treatment.
We know Cleopatra . . . so again, myrrh essential oil, one of the most popular, one of my favorite. And myrrh is a little bit thicker than the other oils. One of the benefits is it doesn’t vaporize as quickly as certain other essential oils. (6)
So myrrh oil, one of my personal favorites, especially for red, dry, and flaking type skin, it’s absolutely fantastic for those types of problems. Now you know what I always think about when I read the Scripture passage in Esther’s book, could you imagine if we found the scroll that talked about the beauty treatments that the incoming queen candidates consumed?
That would be so amazing, six months of treatment of myrrh is what the Bible said. But just a written protocol how cool with that because those were ladies who transformed themselves into the king’s presence.
So if any of you have that scroll, you can send that in, and we’ll give you more than just one free gift. And I want to talk about a natural . . . I’ll actually talk about my unique formula for my anti-aging serum using essential oils in one second.
In fact, for me, every day, I use lavender, frankincense, and rosemary, and I pour it on my head, actually multiple times, and I love to anoint my kids.
One thing we talked about is how I like to anoint my kids and put a little drop of usually lavender, it’s an oil that can be very safe for children in various areas.
I’ll tell you something funny in just a minute that many people can probably attest to also doing. So I put a little oil on their head, and I quote from Psalm 23, “I anoint your head with oil your cap runs over, surely goodness and mercy will follow you all the rest of your days, and you’ll dwell in the house of the Lord forever. (7 8 9)
” And I say that about myself when I pour it on. Do you know what else I thought of? I have many goats and animals at the farm, and I said, next time a female goat has triplets, three girls, I’m going to name them. Surely, Goodness, and Mercy.
I get to the bottom of the essential oils, and I get irritated because they don’t come out of what you would call the orifice reach anymore, so I pull it off, and then I close it, thinking I’ll remember next time.
So I went and poured frankincense on my head, and I couldn’t catch it. Sometimes you quickly see it. It went all over my face, and I think it was almost in my eyes and didn’t bother me. It was unbelievable, I mean, I wouldn’t usually put frankincense in my eye, and my cup indeed ran over that day.
But if that’s ever happened to you, you know what I’m talking about.
I have accidentally put clove on when I did it in the dark, just a drop or two, and it wasn’t that great, I’ll tell you. So as we’re talking about, I mean essential oils are so beneficial for the skin, part of your natural beauty routine.
Formula For Natural Anti-Aging
I’m going to share my formula for a natural anti-aging serum that I use, that my wife Chelsea uses regularly. Before I do that, though, today, millions of people worldwide use chemical-based products
If you think about it, I mean things like EDTA, sodium lauryl sulfate, parabens, all of these so-called chemicals that are found in our shampoo, and our body lotions, and our moisturizers. I want to help you today if you’re using those chemically based beauty products and skincare products.
Get them out of your house, replace them with essential oils.
And so here’s this radiating serum we use. We actually use a little bit of jojoba oil, which is very good for the skin.
We do a little bit of pomegranate oil, and then we mix in lavender, myrrh, and geranium—those oils and then a lot of times frankincense. And so we combine all those oils together. That’s what we use in our skin, that’s what we use on our face, that’s one of the great things about oils, especially like frankincense and geranium.
Whether you have dry or oily skin, they’re actually good for both. They work to naturally balance out the oil on your skin. So again, the essential oil is so powerful we know for natural beauty and skin.
Oils For Kids
What are some of the oils you use if your kids get any type of issue maybe they fall and scrape themselves? What do you do in that case? I hate to go to the well too often, but lavender is so good for mild burns, cuts, and scrapes.
I cut two of my fingers, I’m not even sure how and you’re always preparing things, kids have nails or grabbing this and that but lavender is so gentle and soothing. I use it all the time. (10)
But I also use frankincense, and I’ll use it more now that I dropped some in my eye by accident because it’s pretty soothing. But I think lavender and frankincense are a significant one-two punch.
Lavender brings healing, frankincense is very anti-inflammatory, so they’re both fantastic. There are many others, of course. And there’s also what we would call the healthy fats to use. Rosehip and rosehip seed oil are really, really good as well. (11)
Consume More Collagen-Rich Foods
And of course, coconut oil is always great. We’re jumping into number three here. You’re going to love this one. This is huge and may surprise some of you when it comes to skin health.
Number three here in the five keys to anti-aging, you need to consume more collagen-rich foods. And this would be bone broth, which we mention almost every single program. That is the ideal beauty product.
We talked about this yesterday. If you want excellent health, there’s a handful of foods and compounds that are ancient yet need to be super modern. We mentioned fermented foods, bone broth, fish roe, or caviar. Those are amazing.
But incredibly, bone broth. And it isn’t just bone broth when you are consuming a chicken, so today we have organic roasted chicken for dinner. When it’s organic, I eat the skin. It’s one of my favorite parts.
That’s where the hyaluronic acid and other collagen-boosting compounds are found. So even if you’re not merely making broth, you can consume the skin. And you know what else? In addition to bone broth, meaty broth.
When you cook meat or roast chicken, people always throw away what they think is fat. It’s not fat. Its broth from the meat that contains not only collagen-rich substances but also immune supportive, energizing supplements, particularly amino acids.
If you think about Thanksgiving and all that juice at the turkey’s bottom, I mean it is loaded, that’s where all the nutrients are. Now, my mom, my grandmother likes to make gravy out of it.
Now when Chelsea and I do Thanksgiving now, we actually use that. We make our own sort of paleo or gluten-free gravy with it. It is so good for the body, and that’s the part that you absolutely want to be regularly getting. (12)
So I want to announce a few things here with collagen-rich foods. If you look at the bone broth, it is packed with proline and glycine. I mean, these are building blocks of collagen that support healthy tissues.
And when you’re buying things specifically for the skin type one, two, and three, collagen is all beneficial. So you want to focus on getting something that’s a well-rounded product with different types of collagen.
another thing I want to mention here when we look at the bone broth is its high in something you said. It’s high in glucosamine, chondroitin, and hyaluronic acid. All of these not only the joints and the gut, but they also protect the skin.
So again we know bone broth is by far number one. But after the bone broth, are there any other foods, or nutrients, or plants that actually can support collagen production in your own body?
Think about this, when you look at the bone broth, you talk about chondroitin, glucosamine, and hyaluronic acid. They are glycosaminoglycans. They are polysaccharides, so there are also proteoglycans, and there are really two primary food sources of polysaccharides. (13)
You could think a third potentially, and they’re all excellent for the skin. The number one is mushrooms. Mushrooms, both culinary and medicinal, are perfect. And we talked about this earlier, well not a mushroom, more of a fungus, Chaga is terrific.
Chaga actually has melanin in it. Chaga is a tree fungus from Russia and is absolutely acclaimed. Reishi or Ganoderma is a powerful Chinese mushroom that people talk about as the mushroom of immortality.
Turkey tail is impressive for several reasons. Shiitake is great, Agaricus. So mushrooms are a great source, not only of immune support but of collagen-building.
Sea Vegetables or Seaweed.
Seaweed has various components or polysaccharides, sulfated polysaccharides in red marine algae that are great for collagen and elastin production. And of course, citrus. Vitamin C was named after collagen
which cured scurvy. It was really characterized by bleeding gums and loose gums and teeth because the collagen had worn down. So consuming Vitamin C rich food and the cofactor, so that’s why I think actually lemon, orange, grapefruit, lime, and tangerine oil would be great because of all of the components.
Citrus peel is lovely. But consuming lemon or lime juice can help also boost collagen production. (14)
So if you’re someone who says, “You two always talk about bone broth. I’m a plant-based eater, I’m a vegan,” well here’s what you can do. (15)
But I am Vegan
I’m not only a bone broth every day, but I also have shroom broth every day. More like tea. I take mushrooms, and some of them are very hard. We grow medicinal mushrooms. I will make a decoction or an infusion and consume that as well.
So I’m getting it all over from all different angles. And this isn’t even a vegetable, it’s a fungus, so let’s call it this, multi kingdom collagen.
Organic acids are powerful, often left out nutritional superhero. Organic acids are created either naturally in food, so citric acid is found in lemon.
There is acetic acid created by bacteria but found in apple cider vinegar, there is fulvic and humic acid produced by the natural breakdown of carbon-based substances, and there is lactic acid through probiotic fermentation and many others.
Organic acids, we hear a lot of them, fruit acids put on the skin, right? Consuming fermented foods is a great way to get organic acids, consuming something containing fulvic or humic acid. (16)
So these are really, really important. One great source of organic acids is the Himalayan shilajit. Shilajit is sort of this dark-colored goo that oozes from volcanic areas. They find it in the Himalayas.
Also, another form of it is humate. So consuming those can be really, really good for you. But organic acids genuinely help you become younger, and most Americans today, because of our processed diet, are virtually deficient in organic acids.
A lot of people talk about alkalizing the body. But organic acids kind of work in a different way. They really help balance your digestive system’s pH, which is really so crucial for the body.
We know that there are many different organic acids, shilajit, even apple cider vinegar. We’re talking about acetic acid, fermented herbs, sauerkraut, other foods, and excellent organic acid sources.
And they really support a healthy probiotic growth within your system as well. So you really want to make sure you’re getting some organic acids. So one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and water with a meal is a great thing to do.
A serving of sauerkraut as we’ve talked about, or in your supplements looking for things like shilajit, humic acid, fulvic acid, What about kombucha? Kombucha has organic acids as well, it has glucuronic, gluconic, and acetic acid, and it’s another excellent source of organic acids and beauty.
A lot of people consume kombucha for its beauty benefits.
Source Of Iodine
We’re going to talk about that in an upcoming BLOG, but I think a natural source of iodine, particularly sea vegetables, can be excellent, and there are some right supplements out there, and there are people who really need iodine.
So if you know that you’ve got thyroid issues, I would recommend seeking help from a natural health care practitioner to make sure, but that would be their reason to supplement with more massive amounts of iodine.
Our last food, and this is an absolutely big one. I’m going to talk about three enzyme-rich fruits, okay? So two fruits that are known for their enzyme content are.
Papaya and Pineapple.
So papaya has papain, I’m sure you’ve heard of papain. It’s the number one meat tenderizer out there because it breaks down proteins. It’s also found in a lot of supplements that are geared towards digestion.
Bromelain is the other. Bromelain is from pineapple really from the stem, and papain is commonly found in the latex or the papaya’s skin, not the parts we eat, unfortunately. Those two are standbys for enzyme production.
I’ve been eating one to two kiwis a day or in the evening since I realized that the powerful enzyme actinidain, another proteolytic or protein-digesting enzyme, is found in kiwi.
And kiwi also contains omega-3s, the seeds, and you can even eat the skin. I peel it because I like to taste better. But kiwis are fantastic, and the fruit’s enzymes are not found in the stem or a part you don’t eat.
So eat more kiwis, look for the actinidain enzyme content.
I am a colossal fig fan. And figs actually contain fican, another proteolytic enzyme that has similar benefits to actinidain, bromelain, and papain.
So again, figs are absolutely fantastic for digestion. When you talk about the skin, talk about an antioxidant powerhouse. All of those seeds are great for naturally helping cleans the colon. So again, figs are a great one.
So remember this, pineapple is great. We know that papaya is excellent. But our two favorites are probably kiwi, and figs are fabulous. I want to actually throw one more out there. There’s an herb or a root high in proteolytic enzymes, ginger.
Ginger contains zingiberene, which is another enzyme that actually helps support digestion. So ginger is beneficial for so many things. But that could go on the list there as well.
In fact, my wife and I a few weeks ago do chocolate fondue. We did some raspberries, blueberries, and figs dipped, so we took dark chocolate, coconut milk, mixed it up, did fondue with it. Talk about an anti-aging dessert.
Conclusion And FAQ
We got a couple of questions here we’re going to answer for you right now. One of the first questions here is from Sarah. She says,
“What are your thoughts on this? My husband is afraid to take probiotics because he hasn’t eaten too clean lately.
Wouldn’t he benefit from taking probiotics anyways?” Probiotics are great if you eat well or if you don’t. And either way, they’re not going to harm you because if you get too many, they’re merely digested as protein.
So if you’ve not eaten very well lately, it’s the best time to take probiotics, maybe not a mega dose, but indeed, get started on it.
Maria has a question. She says, “My son has some skin issues,” so her young son.
Says, “The doctor says they are actually under the skin cysts. I’m just wondering what my son can do to help him have naturally healthy skin?
Not sure the age, but detoxification or cleansing is very, very important.
But one of the best ways to have healthy skin, and there’s so many things we could have mentioned, hydrating. I know people that get enough fluids have much better-looking skin. I would put fat right up there as a one-to-one.
But also getting sun. Many people have skin issues when they don’t get sun, green foods are excellent. There are so many things we left out in retrospect. But also this would be a great candidate for essential oils, notably frankincense and lavender combo.
Some of my things to do are to mix manuka honey or local raw honey at your farmers market, with some lavender and tea tree oil. Put it on the face, leave it on there two minutes and wash it off.
It’s really great for young kids and teens to do.
This is a question from Licha Rosa Shifflett; she says, “How can I lessen some of my hormone balance issues?” Start with adaptogenic herbs, not prohormones, not bioidentical hormones but adaptogenic herbs.
Ashwagandha is my favorite, Rhodiola is perfect, Eleuthera, reishi, reishi is amazing, cordyceps you mentioned, ginseng, depending on what you’re dealing with, is a powerful adaptogen as well. Schisandra is just incredible.
Adaptogens first, two, I would go with a bioidentical hormone program under a licensed physician.
So get tested. I don’t believe in using progesterone creams, just loosey-goosey, as you say, willy nilly or whatever.
Because you don’t know your numbers. So make sure that you get tested, and I think bioidentical hormones are a second step. Third, I’m not too fond of prescription hormone medication, but some people need it based on their lifestyle.
So start with adaptogenic herbs that help lower cortisol, helping to boost DHEA, which helps with everything from serotonin to you name it.
We actually have a question from Nida. She says,
“I get bloated a lot. Any thoughts and what can cause it and help to reduce bloating.” So eating one food at a time is excellent. Number two, chew your food thoroughly. I guarantee you, Nida, if you focus on chewing after our program, all my kids took longer to eat dinner because they were chewing their food.
Chew your food more thoroughly, especially carbohydrates, and take digestive enzymes with your food, which is what this is for, to reduce post-meal, gas, and bloating.
