HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR SKIN WITH YOUR DIET

 

Our skin’s health as well as the health of our body is closely related to our diet. So much so, that a good diet can help accelerate the rejuvenation process of our skin.

The skin is nourished through the blood, which transports proteins, vitamins A, B, C and unsaturated fatty acids.

 

Proteins are essential for a good epidermal structure. Our skin eliminates old cells every few days. A proper nutrition provides new proteins that will be responsible for regenerating those cells that have been lost. That´s the reason why a diet poor in protein results in dull and fragil skin

 

Fatty acids favor a good cutaneous metabolism, making the skin stay hydrated.

This is why Omega 6 fatty acids are essential. Fatty acids are present in avocados, olives, legumes, whole grains, wheat germ and evening primrose oil.

And now let’s talk about vitamins, they play a fundamental role in good skin health.

 

Vitamin A

Call vitamin Anti-infectious, is responsible for maintaining the integrity of the epithelia and mucous membranes, acting as a barrier against infections. In turn, this vitamin is essential for the good state of our sight.

White and blue fish are the best source of vitamin A. But we can also find it in vegetables, mainly in orange and yellow veggies and fruits such as carrots, apricots and tropical fruits.

A daily consumption of some of these fruits and vegetables will alleviate the problems of impurities in the skin.

 

Vitamin C

Is key to the formation of Collagen. It acts as a protective and cellular antioxidant, so once again, the daily intake of fruits and vegetables, natural source of this vitamin, is essential.

Vitamin B

It prevents the onset of problems such as dryness and poor skin regeneration.

It is present in whole grains, yeasts, legumes and wheat germ.

 

Enriched milks also nourish our skin providing essential fatty acids.

I invite you to think about your diet and make a small fine tuned to it , you’ll soon see the results in your skin!
