Healthy Diet Equals Healthy Skin
We all agree that a good skincare routine is essential to achieve that healthy glowing skin. The worst mistake you could make when committing to a skincare routine is to only focus on what you put on your skin. Our skin condition changes according to the environment we are in and through the nutrition we give our body. Here are 3 things you need to incorporate into your diet to get healthy skin:-
Protein supplies our skin with the amino acids essential in collagen production, which will help make our skin strong. Including protein-dense food such as fish, lean meat, tofu and chickpeas will help give your skin a chance to heal from within.
Scary? I know! However, healthy fats are essential to your diet because they promote skin hydration and result in plumper-looking skin. Go for food with rich healthy fats such as salmon, tuna and sardines to achieve hydration from within.
Did you know that a severe deficiency in vitamins can damage your skin barrier? An easy way to include multivitamins is to eat a variety of vegetables and fruits! Vitamins work best with other vitamins, so mixing oranges for vitamin C and spinach for peas for Vitamin B will boost your body’s vitamin count. Is there an easier way to do this? YES! Just get multivitamins from your local pharmacy. This way you’re sure you’ll have enough daily dosage of it without worrying too much about what to get at the grocer.
Let us give our skin(and wallet!) a break from slathering every single skincare actives out there and let our skin do what it has been doing since we’re a baby, heal from within!
