Everything you eat shows up on your skin. Eat a lot of junk food? It shows. By your thirties, if you have had bad health habits they will show on your face. Too many late nights, unhealthy food, yo-yo dieting…these are the bane of your skin! One of the best ways to maximize your beauty potential and truly let your radiance shine is through your diet. Treat your body well, you skin will repay youJ.
No matter how hard we try to get all the nutrients we need in our diet, life gets busy, and what we eat is one of the first things to go. This is why supplements are fantastic. A few everyone should use for their over-all wellbeing (and skin of course!) are:
Omega-3 Fatty acids- Fish Oil, AND Flaxseed Oil (both of these)
Supplements are like skincare, sometimes a little extra money gives you a better product. Vitamin C, and Fish-Oil break down over time with Oxygen exposure. Keep your supplements in a dark, cool place, and I do not recommend buying in bulk. If you buy in huge supply, before your fish oil or Vitamin C supplements are used up, their potency will be gone.
Adding Green tea to your diet can really be beneficial, and it works wonders for your skin! Try drinking as much water as you can (without over-doing it of course), and adding regular cups of green tea to your diet. You will see an improvement in your skin.
Also reach for pomegranates! Several studies have shown that pomegranates have more antioxidant power than Green tea and red wine!
If you have any skin problems, or just want to maintain the glow that you have, stay away (or limit more realistically) these:
Refined white sugar
High fructose corn sugar
And yes, as of recent several studies have come out in favor of caffeine. Caffeine does have many benefits, between anti-aging, and even sunburn, and skin cancer! But remember, caffeine does dry out your skin. If you drink one cup of coffee per day, and drink water before consumption, that’s fine. Remember, it is all about maintaining skin’s barrier…because if that breaks down your skin is susceptible to bacteria, allergens, and other irritants that are the root of acne, rosacea, and eczema. Maintain your skin’s barrier and protect your skin.
