Diet for glowing skin
We are what we eat. All processes in our organism are reflected in the appearance, and the first thing that shows our health problems is face. Proper nutrition, a balanced menu, taking into account all the substances necessary for healthy skin, can maintain beauty and health of face throughout life without much effort, as opposed to the cosmetic procedures.
We have already considered the issue of skin diseases and their connection with unhealthy diet. Let’s repeat some general recommendations – how to maintain or get back our healthy-looking complexion.
If we give up carbonated drinks, strong tea, coffee, spices and sweet, we can avoid the appearance of irritation and vascular mesh on the face (especially in summer). Having refused from fatty and fried foods, we will help our skin to become more elastic and attain the tone.
What kind of food is useful for skin? Such products as beets, cod liver, leafy vegetables, namely, those which contain vitamins B, will make our skin more matte and will help to prevent the appearance of small pimples. Furthermore, seafood, beef, poultry, low fat dairy products – containing zinc – are also extremely beneficial for skin health.
Thus, we can say that proteins, saturated fatty acids and antioxidants must be included into our daily ration as foods that help to maintain tissue tone, to protect against dehydration and to accelerate cell regeneration.
