Food Routines For a Glowing Skin
There is no one perfect diet for everyone but including the right nutrients into your diet can have powerful effects on your overall health and your skin’s appearance. Continue reading to learn about which foods contribute to a radiant complexion and which foods you should rather avoid.
Beauty starts from within
True beauty comes from within as the saying goes. From your character, dignity and confidence. From feeling comfortable in your perfect imperfections and from being happy on the inside. From the person you are.
But whether you are feeling great already or you are feeling bad, eating healthy is a great and simple way to improve your appearance from the inside and boost your self-esteem to feel even better.
Smart food choices to starve wrinkles
You are right when you think that your genetic influences how your skin looks. But eating a healthy diet including skin-friendly foods has a massive influence on your skin’s appearance and its health. Day-to-day food choices can defy supposed genetic predispositions by providing the skin with nutrients it needs to function properly. The food you eat not only influences hydration and blood flow to the skin, but also the repair of the skin, the production of collagen and wrinkle removal.
Build healthy skin from the inside out
Everything we eat - proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals – gets broken down into their smallest components and is transported through your blood to the cells in your body including your skin.
The building blocks of proteins are amino acids, which are important to keep your skin supple and firm, enhance the repair and regeneration of skin cells, build connective tissue and produce collagen.
Besides protein, fats are the second most important element in skin health. The cell walls of each skin cell are made of 2 layers of fat, which incorporate the fat from the food you eat. In addition, the skin needs fats in order to use fat-soluble vitamins to build the cells. Following a low-fat diet can lead to sagging skin and deep wrinkles whereas including a good amount of fats in your daily meals promotes a bouncy and plump skin and a youthful appearance.
Also, Vitamins such as A, C, E and the B vitamins and minerals including manganese, selenium and zinc do a lot to enhance collagen production, maintain your skin’s elasticity and promote a healthy skin.
Whole foods: The key to a fabulous skin
Give your skin what it needs and feed it with high quality protein from fish, meat, egg and nuts and healthy fats such as fatty fish, olive oil, coconut oil, butter, full fat dairy, avocados and olives. Avoid sugar-filled drinks, sugar-loaded desserts, fruit juices, ready-to-eat foods and low-fat foods. Cut back on bread, potatoes, pasta and rice and fill up on non-starchy vegetables such as greens, broccoli, cauliflower, cucumber, peppers, tomatoes and mushrooms.
To nourish your skin, inside and out, and for best results the healthy diet must be accompanied with a skincare routine based on natural beauty products like Alberto Bianchi’s Natural Face Lift Serum. Get started now to feel and look your most beautiful ever.
