Eat Your Way to Better Skin
If you've struggled with skin concerns, there's a good change that you've tried to cut down on certain foods in order to improve your skin. While there's some evidence for foods with a high glycemic index (sugar, processed cereals, white bread, etc.) being linked to acne, the studies involved have been small and there is no concrete proof. According to experts, you're not totally on the wrong track, but you should be focusing more on eating the right foods than cutting out the wrong ones. Eating certain foods will provide healthy nutrients to kill bad bacteria, and stop the skin from becoming inflamed. So what should you be eating in order to improve your skin?
Coconuts contain healthy fats and nutrients which fight bacteria, making them great for hydrating your skin while preventing spots. However, it also contains some saturated fats, and some coconut products are less healthy than others. Experts recommend that instead of eating coconuts, you should put coconut oil on your skin for best results.
Avocados boast plenty of skin-boosting nutrients and vitamins including monounsaturated fats, B vitamins, niacin and folate, and vitamins C and E. Therefore, an avo a day helps support the structures of collagen and elastin in your skin, hydrating it and keeping spots at bay.
Green veggies are a great source of iron, B vitamins, and vitamins A and E, which all help to boost your immune system and hydrate your skin, keeping it healthy. You can easily add more green veggies to most of your meals, or drink a green smoothie as a snack for an effective boost.
Nuts and seeds
Healthy nutrients in nuts and seeds, including monounsaturated fats, and B vitamins, as well as vitamins A and E, minerals, and antioxidants, promote skin's elasticity, regenerate cells and protect against free radicals. Try these as a snack instead of reaching for the chocolate.
Not only do water-dense fruits help you to stay hydrated, which is super beneficial for your skin, but most of them also contain high levels of vitamins A and C, as well as powerful antioxidants that replenish nutrients in skin, promote collagen production, and help keep your skin supple and firm.
