Eat Your Way to Healthier Hydrated Skin
If you are on a quest towards healthier, vital, glowing skin… you should remember the old adage, “You are what you eat.” It is literally true. What you consume matters and can nourish your skin from the inside out.
The most beneficial diet in terms of nourishing your skin is one with great variety and one rich in antioxidant and vitamin rich fruits and vegetables, like beta carotene, vitamins C and E, and zinc, as well as healthy fats found in oily fish, avocadoes and nuts, and adequate hydration.
Choosing Antioxidant and Vitamin Rich Fruits and Vegetables
Carrots, pumpkin, and sweet potatoes provide beta carotene that can prevent skin damage and contribute to maintenance of your skin’s health and appearance.
Red bell peppers, broccoli, brussel sprouts and cauliflower contain Vitamin C which aids in your skin’s natural regeneration process, and helps your body repair damaged skin cells.
Sunflower seeds, almonds, peanuts and some leafy greens like spinach that offer Vitamin E help to support the immune system, cell function, and skin health in general.
Oysters, beef and legumes like chickpeas, lentils and beans provide vital zinc that aids in healing the skin and prevents acne by regulating the activity of the oil glands.
Choosing Healthy Fats
Fatty fish such as salmon and mackerel rich in Omega-3 fatty acids help keep skin thick, supple and moisturized.
The healthy fats found in avocadoes are associated with more lithe, springy skin.
In addition to healthy fats, nuts like walnuts contain other nutrients that your skin needs to function properly and stay healthy.
Achieving Optimal Hydration
It is important that you adequately hydrate your body on a daily basis. When we are dehydrated our skin appears dull and lackluster. It is important to drink a plentiful enough amount of water to stave off dehydration, for your skin health, of course, but also for your overall general wellbeing.
