Food: The Pillar Of A Healthy Body, Mind & Skin
Are you feeding your skin with the proper information?
Are you constantly bombarded by news, emails and messages? Then chances are high that, without even realizing it, you are consuming too much information. If you are beginning to feel confused and irritable, it might be because there is just too much information coming to you, too fast.
Just as our brain is thirsty for information whether it’s useful or not, it likes high calorie food whether it’s healthy or not. However, did you know that the foods you eat deliver important information not only to your brain, but also to the rest of your body, including your skin?
When it comes to healthy eating do you think “Calories in - Calories out”?
When you eat or drink, your body consumes the energy that is stored within the molecules of that food or drink. The three basic components of our food are protein, fat and carbohydrates and the total amount of energy stored in these so-called macronutrients is represented by the calorie.
The body breaks the macronutrients down into basic units and uses these subunits as necessary: to build muscle, construct collagen for the skin, create lubricating ceramide to help the skin retain water and repair the skin’s natural barrier, to produce energy or to store energy in the form of fat.
The importance of a healthy and balanced diet
Thanks to the constant oversupply of food in today’s modern world, we are not starving and, most of us, do not do any extremely heavy physical work, so food does not primarily serve us as energy source, but rather to provide information for the different systems of the human body.
Nowadays, we know that the quality of the food we consume is more important than the actual number of calories contained in it and that different foods have different effects on our body. Two portions of food with the same number of calories but different composition of macronutrients, have different effects on blood sugar levels, triglycerides, hormone levels and, of course, our skin.
Did you know that the skin is the body’s largest organ?
Low-calorie processed food such as crackers and biscuits and low-fat or fat-free versions of yoghurt, cheese and milk miss some of their vital protein, fat and other nutrients, which serve as high quality information for the body. If your diet fails to provide the cells with the information necessary for normal metabolic function, the balance in your body and your health is at risk. This applies also to your body’s largest organ, your skin.
Eating foods with high nutritive value and using high quality natural skincare products such as Alberto Bianchi’s Natural Face Lift Serum gives your body the right messages and is the ideal approach not only to stay healthy but also to get a beautiful and healthy skin.
