Improve your skin from the inside out
We love pampering our skin with masks and serums that promise us healthy and glowing skin, but there’s only so much they can do if we don’t take care of our bodies from the inside out first.
Good skin comes from proper nutrition. What you choose to put into your body will reflect itself on your skin. A poor diet coupled with inadequate hydration can deprive cells of vital nutrients, which will show up on the skin eventually.
It takes more than just serums for a glowing complexion. Here’s what you can do to boost your skin from the inside out.
Cut down on sugar
Bad news. Keep your sweet tooth in check because sugar causes inflammation which can lead to premature signs of aging. Sugar breaks down collagen, making it weak and inflexible. Since collagen essentially makes skin look plump and youthful, this can lead to wrinkled, sagging skin.
Drink plenty of water
Make water your skin’s BFF. It’s essential for optimal skin health as it hydrates and flushes toxins out of the body efficiently. Well-hydrated skin looks dewy, youthful and plump. Drinking sufficient amounts of water also prevents sugar cravings throughout the day, lessening inflammation in general.
Healthy fats are your friends
Healthy fats such as omega oils are remarkable ingredients for skin and play a significant role in skin health. They essentially create a smoother, younger, healthier complexion. Since omega oils cannot be produced by the body, you need to add them to your diet through food and supplements. Get your fix of Omega-3s from salmon, sardines, mackerel, flaxseed or chia seeds.
Opt for whole grains
Whole grains are the better choice for skin as they’re a healthy alternative to processed carbohydrates. Processed carbohydrates cause a spike in insulin, which leads to acne. Since whole grains are rich in fibre, they help with digestive issues which, if left neglected, can reflect themselves in unhealthy skin.
Choose leafy greens
Think kale, spinach and cabbage. Leafy greens are packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that protect skin cells and stimulate growth, keeping skin wrinkle and damage free. As an added bonus, antioxidants found in leafy greens detoxifies the skin, keeping it clear and radiant.
Watch your coffee intake
Coffee is a diuretic, which causes your body to lose hydration. This has a direct effect on your skin because dehydrated skin causes inflammation and premature aging. On top of that, coffee is also highly acidic and high doses of acidity can mess with your hormones. Start paying attention to your coffee intake and consume in moderation.
Add supplements to your diet
Healthy skin starts from a healthy you. A balanced diet and good skincare regimen can help keep your skin beautiful, but we can all use a little help here and there. Even if you eat well, you’ll still benefit from a boost of targeted nutrition, especially when today’s fast-paced urban lifestyle makes a balanced diet a rarity. Supplements are a quick and easy way to make up for the nutrition we’re missing and help support your skin with glow-inducing ingredients you wouldn’t normally add eat on the regular.
