We seldom think that the foods we consume affect our physical appearance. Cosmetologists and nutritionists tirelessly assert that wrong nutrition adversely influences the condition of our skin. If your skin becomes red or scaly, pay attention to what you eat.
Improper nutrition can cause acne. The reason may hide in the excessive consumption of foods with a large amount of starch (potatoes), salt, sugar and fat. In addition, overuse of strong tea, coffee, pickles and smoked foods can also lead to such an unpleasant problem.
Don’t panic. Try to eliminate such foods from your ration which contribute to activation of the sebaceous glands, as well as violate the insulin exchange. These are products that contain preservatives, carbonated beverages, acute, salted and smoked products, sweet yogurt in large quantities, surrogate chocolate, as well as other sweet goodies. It is recommended to eat whole wheat bread (in moderate quantities), pasta from hard wheat semolina. It is definitely needed to include into your menu: berries, fruits, vegetables, fish and porridges from the whole-grain cereals, and don’t forget to drink plenty of fluids (up to 2 liters per day).
The lack of fats in the organism can lead to flaking of skin. Perhaps, if you wanted to lose weight, you have overdone with the excluding fat. Remember, consuming less than 20 grams of fat a day, you don’t saturate the body with vitamin A. Lack of this vitamin causes premature aging – skin becomes too dry and starts to peel off. If you are on a diet, don’t worry. Olive oil is not harmful for the figure. You can safely use it and sprinkle vegetables for example. In addition, it can be added into different salads. Nuts, avocado and olives also positive affect your skin without damaging the waist.
A noticeable reddening of the skin may indicate the excessive use hot spices or alcoholic beverages, fatty and smoked meat. Their action dilates the blood vessels and the face strongly reddens. Analyze your ration and eliminate or reduce the amount of the consumed curry, wasabi and other hot spices. The same applies to wine.
Premature wrinkles indicate the inflammatory processes, leading to clogging of the skin pores and consequently the appearance of inflammation in the form of acne. You can avoid this and include fish into the daily ration (tuna, salmon, mackerel) – a source of omega-3 acids. In addition, walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds and flax seed oil will also be useful in this case.
