3 Simple & Natural Ways To Reduce Inflammation In The Skin

So, throughout the episode, we discuss why this might be happening–and ways to help folks take back control of their routines, skin, and happiness. Not only will this improve your overall well-being, but in the process it can reduce inflammation in the skin–resulting in a happier, healthier complexion.

Here, three ways Tsai practices it in her own life.

Connect to nature.

We know that the simple act of being in nature has a profound effect on us. Tsai notes that the brand works with immunologist, author of Forest Bathing: How Trees Can Help You Find Health and Happiness, and one of the world’s foremost experts on forest bathing, Qing Li, M.D., Ph.D. Through Li’s research, we know that being in forests can “reduce blood pressure, lower stress, improve cardiovascular and metabolic health, lower blood sugar levels, improve concentration of memory, lift depression, improve pain thresholds, improve energy, boost the immune system,” she notes.

And all of these benefits “would last for six weeks and are cumulative, so every time you go back it keeps adding on.”

Use skin superfoods.

The foundation of healthy skin is a balanced lifestyle–and using the right products and ingredients is part of that. One way Tsai recommends doing this is using anti-inflammatory superfoods.

“For example, green tea, rice, and seaweed are superfoods. These are basically fire extinguishers so the body can shut down inflammation pretty quickly,” she says. “And inflammation is something that you can actually see overnight results. You may not completely heal it overnight, especially if you haven’t gotten down to the root cause yet, but you can see results.”

Avoid the urge to go on autopilot in your routines.

According to a Harvard study, for most folks, we spend 46% of our waking moments on autopilot. And if we are more intentional and mindful about our habits, research shows that it can improve our mental health.

Take, for example, the simple act of washing your face: “Put away your phone, turn off the TV, and turn your bathroom into a personal sanctuary. Then when you go through each step, just put a little intention into it,” she says. “Cleansing can be an act of letting go. So when I’m massaging in my face cleanser, I am thinking about all the things I’m holding on to that are no longer serving me. I imagine them literally melting away and letting go. For me, it’s often fear. For the last few years, a bit of anger too. Just let it go.”
