Our diet is one of the most important factors that determine the final outlook of our body and appearance. Our Skins health is one such thing that is directly affected by the food we consume.
Now just like you require your fair share of Vitamins, Proteins and Calcium to make a workout more beneficial. The same can be said about the skin, to maintain healthy skin we need to provide the skin with adequate nutrition in terms of the food we consume. Therefore foods rich in Vitamins, Proteins, Antioxidants, Fibre and Minerals are vital for the nourishment the skin requires.
WHAT CAN AFFECT OUR SKIN HEALTH?
There are certain key factors you should change and focus on in your diet that can make a world of difference for your skin health such as:
Antioxidants are abundantly found in fruits and vegetables, eating the same in raw form or its form closest to nature can have exceptional results towards improving skin appearance and radiance. The lack of Antioxidants can help free radicals erode into skin and reduce collagen levels in skin substantially. Consuming a healthy amount of foods rich in antioxidants can help restore collagen levels and improve skin texture by reducing the effects of age in the form of wrinkles.
Example: Blueberries, Salomon, Onions
Vitamins A, C and E specifically work towards the improving your skin health. Food rich in Vitamins will help provide the skin with improved defences in fighting free radicals, skin irritation and unstable molecules which specifically target the skin from within. Products rich in Vitamin C are often recommended for external application, as it helps restore the skin with a lot of hydration and nourishment in the process. Thus consumption of foods rich in Vitamins will help create a moisture barrier and provide strength to the skin towards fighting external factors like ACNE.
Example: Avocado, Almonds, Hazelnuts, Sunflower Seeds, Broccoli
Foods rich in fibre can do wonders towards improving the body’s metabolism and regulate the digestive system. Fibrous foods help regulate blood sugar levels and also the accumulation of cholesterol. To be honest not many know that the body cannot digest fibre present in foods. Instead of the digestion the body instead converts the fibre into a gel like substance which reduces the speed of the digestion. This leads to you feeling less hungry and healthier. The consumption of fibre helps push yeast and fungus out of the body which prevents you from developing skin condition like itchiness, ACNE and rashes.
Example: Whole Grains, Vegetables (Carrots, Celery, Beetroot), Cereals
Consuming Proteins is very essential towards improving skin health. Protein is directly linked with the healthy build up of Collagen which is medical terms is referred to as an element which adds elasticity in skin. Therefore consuming required amounts of protein would help produce and strengthen Collagen, this would in turn help to maintain young and healthy skin. People who consume a low protein diet have often companied about skin sagging and premature skin ageing. If you are looking to maintain a healthy skin texture, it is very important to nourish your body with the required amounts of protein in your daily food consumption.
Example: Meat, Fish, Bean, Tofu, Lentils
Among the numerous Minerals our skin requires we would name a few which are extremely important for healthy skin. Zinc as we know regulates the amount of Vitamin A released from the liver. This would help the body naturally keep skin inflammation in check. Zinc is also known to regulate the amount of natural oil produced by the body, therefore increasing the consumption of Zinc in the food can keep ACNE disorders in check. Sulfur is another mineral which is extremely beneficial to human skin. Dermatologists often prescribe a sulfur treatment to treat skin condition as severe as Rosacea, Dermatitis and Eczema. Sulfur helps the body to fight bacteria and helps cleans skin of external elements. Sulfur is also very suited towards skin healing and curing skin conditions like ACNE, Blemishes and inflammation.
Example: Roast Beef, Pumpkin Seeds, Garlic, Kale
