If your eyes are mirrors of your soul, your skin is a direct reflection of the extra greasy, seasoned fries topped with bacon and processed cheddar cheese you ate last night with your girlfriends.
Skin wellness is oftentimes a direct result of the food choices we make. In our last blog article, “Five Sensitive Skin Food Sins to Avoid,” we discussed foods that could potentially irritate and inflame sensitive skin. Today’s blog offers food suggestions to help you achieve brightness and enhance the compactness of your skin, while providing that sexy glow that turns heads!
Three important elements to include in your diet
Some substances are distinguished by the protective and regenerating properties they provide for your skin. Researching them in foods and introducing them regularly into the diet helps ensure hydrated, soft skin.
- VITAMIN E: Vitamin E is one of the most powerful natural antioxidants, able to defend cell membranes from free radicals, the main causes of aging, wrinkles, and other skin imperfections. Its antioxidant action also protects the skin from external aggressions. Vitamin E is especially useful in winter, when the skin becomes drier and more delicate. The most important food sources of vitamin E are extra virgin olive oil, wheat germ, nuts, spinach and avocado, which is especially rich in vitamin E. Try using a dry avocado based oil to hydrate your skin and keep it elastic after a bath or shower.
- VITAMIN C: Vitamin C is an incredible skin ally as it stimulates the regeneration of tissues and promotes the synthesis of collagen, the protein with a support function that keeps the skin tonic. Thanks to its antihistamine qualities, vitamin C is a natural remedy useful for preventing and combating allergies. Citrus fruits are perhaps the first foods that are associated with this substance, but good amounts of vitamin C are also found in kiwi, strawberries and berries, melon, apples, tomatoes, peppers, cabbage, broccoli, asparagus, and spinach. Vitamin C, especially during autumn and winter, protects from seasonal illnesses (for example from the common cold) because it strengthens the immune system. Try freshly squeezed orange juice at breakfast to guarantee the right amount of vitamins and bright-looking skin.
- OMEGA 3: The fatty acids characterized by omega 3 favor the elasticity of the skin, and keep skin soft. Omega-3 fatty acids also exert an anti-inflammatory action, which helps to prevent and fight acne, dermatitis and other skin disorders. To get your fill of omega-3, try thick fatty fish, walnuts, hazelnuts, and pumpkin seeds. You can increase your intake of omega-3 fatty acids by taking supplements or eating grass-fed meat or fatty fish like salmon once or twice a week.
Making healthier lifestyle choices, and consciously choosing organic foods are two ways to respect your body and protect your sensitive skin.
