In this article, you’ll read about the best tips you need to know to achieve healthy skin and be confidently beautiful inside out.
The Importance of Adequate Diet for the Skin
As the saying goes, “you are what you eat”. True enough, healthy and adequate diet will dictate what our skin health would be. It is very important then to follow a healthy lifestyle with regards to our daily meals and eating habits. Start off with drinking extra glasses of clean water which will cleanse your system from toxins that cause skin blemishes. Next is to add mixed nuts on your diet like Brazil nuts that are rich in selenium which provides skin softness and elasticity. “Throw in walnuts—which are loaded with omega-3 fatty acids—to lower inflammation and put the brakes on breakouts”, says Molly Morgan, Board Certified Sports Specialist Dietician and author of The Skinny Rules. And finally, eat plenty of veggies especially Broccoli to achieve that healthy skin. "Just a half cup of raw broccoli is loaded with 65 percent of your daily value of vitamin C”, Morgan added.
Be Consistent with your Daily Skincare Routine
"Most makeup contains a sugar-type molecule that can grow yeast overnight," says Macrene Alexiades-Armenakas, assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Yale School of Medicine. Keeping this in mind, always use a mild and oil-free cleanser that will easily remove any makeup before sleeping. Removing eye makeup must be the number one on your list and do it consistently to avoid bumpy rashes around the eyes. So before sleeping at night cleanse your skin well and keep it moisturized. Remember, a moisturized skin is one of the foundations of a healthy skin.
Get Loads of Beauty Sleep
"Sleep deprivation lowers circulation, which is why you look pale and washed out if you only get a few hours," says Amy Wechsler, one of only two U.S. physicians board-certified in both dermatology and psychiatry. Having enough sleep rejuvenates the entire body including your skin. "Your body's cellular renewal team has the night shift, so this is when you want to equip your skin with as many nutrients and hydrating ingredients it needs to do a fine job," Amy Wechsler added.
