Eat your way to great skin
If you suffer from oily, dry or spotty skin, there is a much more enjoyable way to improve your complexion than having to apply moisturisers and face cleansers twice a day. Instead, why not eat your way to a clear complexion?
It is every girls’ nightmare to have a blemish on their face just before an important occasion like a prom or a wedding. You have gone to so much effort finding the perfect dress and accessorizing it with elegant Seventy Seven Diamonds jewellery, that a big red spot would ruin everything. But don’t worry, this blog post will reveal the foods which are guaranteed to give you great skin.
Dairy – Low fat dairy products like yoghurt, milk and reduced fat cheese, all contain high levels of vitamin A which is great for your skin. Cottage cheese is high in calcium which builds strong nails and hair, but it is also high in selenium which will help give a natural pink glow to your cheeks.
Antioxidants – Fruits with high counts of anti-oxidants – such as strawberries, blueberries and blackcurrants – revitalise the skin, making it look healthier. Also, fruits like mango are high in vitamin A which will help to repair skin cells quicker, preventing your skin from going flaky.
Fatty Oils – Omega 3 oils are found in oily fish such as tuna, salmon and mackerel. They add moisture to your skin, keeping it soft and healthy. In addition, avocados and nuts contain natural fats and B-complex vitamins which soothes red and blotchy skin.
Drinking – It is recommended that we drink around 2 litres of liquid a day, but rather than opting for high sugar and calorie drinks like Coca Cola, it is much more beneficial to drink water or juice. Water will flush out any toxins and fatty cells in the body, as well as keeping your skin moisturised and bouncy. Green tea is a great alternative because it contains anti-oxidants as well as being an aid to weight loss. In addition, drinking ice cold water is an aid to weight loss; your metabolism speeds up and works extra hard to warm up the water, thus burning more calories in the process.
