Better Skin Nutrition
Eat your way to a youthful complexion
Your skin, the largest organ of the body, has many different functions. It is your body's waterproof covering, your defense shield against bacteria, your cooling system, and your sense organ for feeling. It is also the first indicator of your state of health.
As you age, your skin develops wrinkles, becomes saggy, and experiences pore enlargement. Poor diet, smoking, and too much alcohol intake can accelerate skin deterioration. When your skin is deprived of essential nutrients, its renewal process is slowed down and the oxidative damage caused by free radicals in your body is increased. Stress (physical, mental, and emotional) also leads to hormonal changes that result in numerous skin problems, such as acne, psoriasis, and skin thinning.
However, by maintaining proper lifestyle, healthy diet, and supplementation, you can delay the aging process and maintain youthful radiance. Start by eating your way to younger looking skin! Take refuge in nature's gifts for optimal nutrients to fight skin aging.
Here is a list of recommended foods for optimizing your youthful complexion:
High levels of Biotin in avocados prevent dry skin. The flesh of avocados can even hydrate parched skin when applied topically.
Biotin is one of the eight vitamins that make up Vitamin B complex. It is known as the hair and skin nutrient. Hair loss, rashes, fungus or eczema are symptoms of possible biotin deficiency.
When your skin is regularly hydrated, it remains clear and radiant. When your skin is dry, your glands produce more oil to coat and protect it. If you have oily skin and fail to moisturize it regularly, your skin condition will worsen. Skin glands will work harder to produce more oil. By moisturizing your skin daily, your skin is protected and oil secretion is minimized.
2. Green tea
The antioxidants and polyphenols in green tea slow the process of skin wrinkling. Aim for 4 cups of green tea throughout your day.
Lycopene and carotenoids in tomatoes slow cellular damage caused by free radicals.
Free radical damage is the main cause of skin aging. Free radicals attack your skin cell's DNA and create havoc at the cellular level. The major sources of free radicals are unprotected sun exposure, pollution, chemical exposure, smoking, and skin care products that contain benzoyl peroxide, hydrogen peroxide, and hydroquinone.
Astaxanthin in salmon improves skin elasticity, thus, preventing wrinkles.
Eggs are high in protein and biotin. These nutrients play an important role in repairing cells that have suffered from free radical damage. Protein and biotin also protect your skin from drying.
Antioxidants in pomegranates help your skin create more collagen for elasticity and increased healing speed.
Walnuts are high in omega-3 fatty acids. These smoothen skin, resulting in youthful radiance.
The protein content of legumes helps in cell repair. Protein is broken down into amino acids during digestion. Amino acids accelerate skin cell regeneration and enhance collagen production.
