Feeding your skin the right nutrition is super important.
Think about it, your skin is made out of cells, cells are fed by what you eat.
Makes sense, right?
Here are a few diet tips:
- Essential fatty acids--main nourishment for cell membrane
- Coconut oil
- Olive oil
- Flax seed oil
- Fish oil
- Walnut oil
- Almond oil
Herbs may decrease your risk of developing skin diseases, such as melanoma, as they are strong antioxidants that combat the onslaught of free radicals.
Dark green, leafy veggies can help neutralize free radicals created by UV light.
These vegetables are also rich in Vitamin A and C, which are essential building blocks of collagen and elastin.
If you can, switch to almond milk, which is a huge anti-inflammatory food.
Inflammation in the body can lead to diffused redness in the skin and worsen acne and wrinkles.
Remember, you don't have to change your entire diet all at once.
Making one change is progress and it's all about progress, not perfection.
