Well, well, well… Is it you who is going to dermatologists with the hope to get healthy-looking skin BUT still doesn’t think of nourishment from within? A lot of people suffer from acne or fight with signs of aging using different creams and lotions. I don’t say them to stop or don’t claim that they are wrong. When it comes to glowing skin, the thing is that lotion treatment is just an effective supplement to a healthy and sustainable diet, which is the most important part here.

Of course, we can’t cancel the natural process of getting wrinkles and fine lines and must admit it’s inevitable. Yeh, sounds upset but there is still no room for sadness — putting off this process is within our reach! And it can be super delicious, by the way! FOOD… tasty, juicy, nutritious, wholesome, red, green, orange. The proper food can help us look young and our skin healthy.

FISH

Or any seafood that you love! Fish contains zinc that is an important nutrient when it comes to the production of new skin cells.

It’s time to become a seafood lover! The amount of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids it contains (our body can’t produce them itself, by the way) is incredible! For example, salmon is a powerful antioxidant that reduces redness and acne thanks to its inflammatory effects. Fatty acids make the skin shine bright, be super firm, and perfectly moisturized.

FRUIT and VEGETABLES

Several studies showed that vegetables provide a healthy tan and a healthier glow of your skin.

Eat a lot of them every single day! Eat them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Eat them as a snack when you are hungry. Why? They are crucial if you want to have young skin. Fruit and vegetables are rich in antioxidants that help protect skin from free radicals (they are super harmful to our skin!).

For example, for a healthy skin tone, eat a carrot, pumpkin, and sweet potato. To reduce wrinkles and dry skin, eat bell peppers which are full of Vitamin C which is important when it comes to creating collagen. Broccoli also helps you stay young for a longer time. They contain lutein which protects your skin from undesired wrinkles. Plus, they have anti-cancer effects thanks to the special compound sulforaphane. Tomatoes are a good source of Vitamin C and lycopene. You already know why Vitamin C is important, don’t you? And lycopene perfectly protects the skin from sun damage.

HEALTHY FATS

Researches showed that avocado oil has anti-inflammatory and skin barrier repair effects. Therefore, the process of healing wounds gets way faster.

Thanks to the power of the Internet, people get to know that fats can be HEALTHY. Not those fats that are in crisps or french fries, but good fats that we can find in avocado, oily fish, nuts, and seeds. They work as the best moisturizer while Vitamin E protects our skin from cell damage. With healthy fats in your body, you’ll glow but not from the highlighter.

WATER

A study in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science proved that your skin thickness will change in 4 weeks if you drink approximately 2 liters of water every day.

Honestly, drink water! You can consume thousands of vitamins, but without water, it’s worth nothing. You can’t even imagine how many benefits this simple transparent liquid has. Water itself keeps the skin hydrated and prevents wrinkles, deep lines, saggy skin, darkness, and blemishes. What’s important, it helps your kidneys to flush out toxins from your body.

Did you know that our skin contains 30% of the total water content of the body? This 30% make it elastic and firm. Otherwise, your skin loses its resiliency and firm appearance which is a direct way to getting wrinkles faster than you expected! Love yourself and nourish your body with the best products.
