Health: Think Skin

Healthy-Eating2I’ve notice recently that my skin has started to age. This is something that I’m keen to combat and the best way to do this is eating nutrient rich food.

Our skin sheds and regenerates every 30 days. This means that a bad diet will reduce skin regeneration and increase cell damage which is the cause of premature ageing. It’s high time that we all started nourishing our skin from the inside.

Sugar is the worst thing for your skin as it disrupts blood sugar levels which can inflame skin and cause acne, wrinkles and ageing!! It’s best to avoid the sugars in white bread, cakes and sweets, and replace them with vitamin pack vegetables. Sweet potato is great as it is rich in skin friendly nutrients like beta-carotene. When it comes to fruit opt for apples, red grapes and berries for skin boosting nutrients.

Obviously oily fish and coconut oil is full of Omega-3 which is the dream nutrient for your skin. It boosts the protein and therefore the collagen in your skin. Eat plenty of Omega-3 Β or add supplements to your diet for added skin-friendly nutrients.

What’s your skin type? Do you consider your skin’s condition with your diet?
