Tips to have a healthy skin

The skin is one of the most powerful indicators of health. Wrinkles, dry or oily skin, acne, and inflammation all are signs of poor internal health, often brought on by consuming unhealthful foods and avoiding skin-healthy nutrients. Everything you eat becomes a part of not only your inner being, but the outer fabric of your body as well. The healthier the foods are that you consume, the better your skin will look.

– Drink plenty of water : It helps keep the skin hydrated, and helps clear out the system, which will not only mean beautiful skin, but feeling better all around.
– Blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, and plums : The common link between these four foods is their high antioxidant content.
– Salmon, Walnuts, Canola Oil, and Flax Seed : Loaded with essential fatty acids, they’re just what the skin needs to protect itself. Additionally, it also helps the skin look younger by giving it the nourishment it needs to keep it supple.
– Green Tea : Yet another liquid, but an incredibly beneficial one. Green tea has anti inflammatory properties and is rich in poly phenols. And, for an added benefit, helps the metabolism.
– Whole Wheat Bread : This item, while some might say has a less appealing flavor than, say, white bread, is healthy because it contains selenium. Selenium is a mineral that is helpful when it comes to skin cells, and, studies show, might even help skin damaged by the sun.

– Silica : Silica is a trace mineral that strengthens the body’s connective tissues – muscles, tendons, hair, ligaments, nails, cartilage, and bone – and is vital for healthy skin. Food sources of silica include leeks, green beans, garbanzo beans, strawberries, cucumber, mango, celery, asparagus and rhubarb.
– Zinc : Zinc acts by controlling the production of oil in the skin, and may also help control some of the hormones that create acne. Zinc is also required for proper immune system function, as well as for the maintenance of vision, taste, and smell. Zinc consumption is also strongly linked to a reduction of prostate cancer. Foods rich in zinc include fresh oysters, pumpkin seeds, ginger, pecans, Brazil nuts, oats, and eggs.
– Omega-3 Fatty acids : EFAs are responsible for skin repair, moisture content, and overall flexibility, but because the body cannot produce its own EFAs, they must be obtained through the diet. Omega-6 fatty acids found in baked goods and grains, and lacking in omega-3s, found in cold-water fish such as salmon and mackerel, as well as flaxseeds and safflower oil.

– Wash your skin everyday with a gentle, moisturizing soap.
– Wear sunscreen everyday, even in the winter or when it is cloudy out.
– Moisturize : Dry skin doesn’t heal as easily as soft skin, and therefore is more susceptible to other forms of damage.
– Exercise is good anytime and for multiple reasons, but it helps the skin keep elasticity, which will, in turn, help reduce wrinkles.

– Avoid oily foods.
– Reduce stress.
– Be cautious in using different skin products.
– Avoid direct sunlight.
– Avoid breathing tobacco smoke.
– Alcohol dries the skin, so keep it off your skin and out of your diet for maximum skin protection.
