The begin the process of having healthy skin, it takes having a few simple components in the right combination.
Healthy skin starts with good eating habits, exercise and a skincare regimen that includes exfoliation, cleansing, moisturizing and using sunscreen.
Use this menu to order great skin:
The plate of colors. When selecting fruits and vegetables that are vibrant and full of color, you are also selecting foods rich in antioxidants and fiber. Eating meals loaded with produce improves skin tone and appearance and it may even prevent photoaging (Dinkova-Kostova 2008).
Water. Drinking lots of water is critical for flushing waste from your body and for keeping your skin plump and hydrated.
Seafood. Fish, especially salmon, is full of omega-3 fatty acids which act as anti-inflammatories. Not to mention they are full of zinc which supports a healthy immune system.
Nuts. When you can't get your omega-3 from fish, nuts are an excellent source. Almonds, walnuts and other sources are good choices and they also provide a nutritional bonus with the added vitamin E.
Healthy fats. Avocados, flaxseeds and olive oils have beneficial fats that keep skin supple and glowing.
Whole grains. Within unprocessed grains you will find an excellent source of B vitamins that are essential for healthy cell turnover. Yes, you can help manufacture new skiln cells just by eating whole grains!
