A Winning Skin Care Routine Starts with Good Nutrition
Food is your body’s fuel source, as it supports major bodily functions such as your metabolism, circulation, and digestion. Without proper nutrition, you cannot operate at optimum levels, because your body will be without the nutrients and minerals it needs to thrive. In fact, a healthy and well-balanced diet promotes seemingly ageless skin!
Get Ready to Enrich Your Skin
According to research, foods such as fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains have the ability to help slow down the aging process of our skin. Additionally, foods rich in Omega-3’s, also known as healthy fats, assist in regulating bodily function, keeps your skin and hair supple and healthy, and decreases inflammation.
Other foods “rich” in vitamins like Vitamins A, C, E, Antioxidants, Selenium, Zinc and CoQ10 can offer an added boost to the complexion.
Here are three of the top reasons to keep on time of your diet to not only improve your health but also enhance your skin’s appearance.
- You are What You Eat
That adage has survived the test of time because it’s true! The quality of your skin directly correlates to the quality of food you eat. With proper nutrition, your skin can maintain and repair tissue more effectively, resulting in a glowing and radiant complexion. Research has also proven that fruits are filled with enzymes and minerals that cleanse our bodies, since they can be easily digested.
- Water, Water Everywhere
While what you eat is key to your skin’s complexion, water is easily as important. When you don’t drink an adequate amount of water on a regular basis – 2 liters a day for most people - your skin will begin to become dehydrated, and as a result, it will appear sallow and even produce visible dry patches.
- Eat, Drink, and Be Merry!
Not only does a well-balanced diet benefit your skin by helping it to look radiant and you, it also helps with your overall well-being so that you feel energized and ready to take on the world. When you consume the daily recommended amount of water, eat nutrient-filled foods, and get enough rest, you will look better physically and feel better mentally! And your skin will thank you!
