Did you know that tweaking your diet even just the slightest bit can result in younger looking skin? That’s right, just consuming healthier foods creates younger and better looking skin! Making sure that your diet regimen is on an even keel is also recommended so your body is well balanced and taken care of.
Another major component for better looking skin, is a daily dose of vitamin A. Low-fat dairy products also assist in looking youthful. Acidophilus (vitamin used for intestinal health) is highly recommended to promote better skin health as well.
Acne has a reputation for disrupting a clear complexion by just one blemish and the worst part is it can lead to further breakouts. Along with acne are other skin conditions that can be just as chronic such as eczema or dermatitis. Just a bit of prevention can go a long ways in order to keep the skin clean, healthy, and clear. Please refer to article, Topical Tuesday for tips on eczema treatment.
Antioxidants protect the integrity of a healthy skin cell. Berries are recommended as an antioxidant that prevents damage to a skin cell. These antioxidants block or help prevent the effect of free radicals which causes oxidation in foods. Oxidation means foods that are exposed to oxygen which in turn lead to cell dysfunction.
Free radicals can be linked to things like heart disease and cancer which is why it is important to receive and replenish a certain amount of antioxidants in one’s system.
Fatty acids are the good fats you want to consume. They are responsible for healthy cell membranes and help guard against heart disease. Such fatty acids can be listed as: fish, walnuts, canola oil, and flax seed-to name a few. These items help regulate a healthy balanced diet and also help promote healthy looking skin.
Bulking up on whole wheat instead of white wheat foods is also advised as whole wheat contains selenium which contains properties of antioxidants. Whole wheat alternatives in cereal, muffins, and bread are encouraged to consume and can be that small of a step to take in order to go a long ways. White wheat items such as sugar and white rice can increase insulin levels which can then lead to inflammation of the skin such as acne.
Consuming this reduces the risk of skin cancer and prevents damage of skin cells from ultraviolet light.
Water is the Holy Grail for the rejuvenation of skin cells. Skin cells rejoice at the sign of consumed water replenishing them. Skin cells thrive off purified water so they may make nutrients and rid the body of toxins.
