To have perfect skin you need to have a 360° approach.
First of all, it is necessary to avoid using synthetic cosmetics and prefer natural creams, oils and serums, with amazing INCI and excellent active ingredients, but it is also important to pay attention to the foods that make up our diet, because, as Feuerbach said: “We are what we eat“.
Our body transforms food into cells, blood, muscle tissues, and connective tissues, the building blocks of our body. So, if what we eat is unhealthy, this is a losing battle.
The first step to have silky and healthy skin is to eat healthy food! Do not misunderstand, eating some unhealthy culinary pleasure does not kill anyone, but it is essential to follow an appropriate diet plan, with some exceptions.
There are some macro-categories of food that, if eaten regularly, help your skin to shine and stay healthy.
1. Red fruits favor microcirculation
Blueberries, raspberries, black currants, and blackberries protect blood vessels and capillaries. Therefore, they are highly beneficial for sensitive skin since they strengthen them from the inside.
The healthy action of red fruits, rich in antioxidants such as tannins and anthocyanins, is also supported by the presence of a good amount of vitamin C and beneficial organic acids such as malic and tartaric acid.
2. Salmon to fill up on Omega 3
Foods rich in omega 3 and essential fatty acids, or polyunsaturated fats (“good” cholesterol that lowers the level of “bad” cholesterol in the blood) have the power to reduce the production of free radicals and slow down cellular aging.
Among the richest omega 3 foods, there is salmon and bluefish (such as anchovies and mackerel). It is advisable to eat these foods 3 times a week to obtain an anti-aging effect.
3. Orange-colored fruits and vegetables for radiant skin
Carrots, apricots, pumpkin, peppers, and all orange fruits and vegetables (except oranges) contain beta-carotene which reduces the production of free radicals and, at the same time, protects the skin from sunlight and atmospheric pollution, keeping it bright and young longer.
4. Eggs to make the skin more elastic
A low-protein diet can cause weakness, hair loss and dry skin, and consequently wrinkles and expression marks.
The egg is a complete food that should not be lacking in a weekly diet, recommended in doses of 2-3 eggs per week. In fact, both the yolk and the egg white have remarkable beneficial properties for the skin, ensuring its compactness and tone.
The yolk, in particular, is rich in essential minerals such as iron, phosphorus, and calcium, and has a good amount of vitamins B and D group, essential for bones, skin, and hair. It is also rich in proteins and phospholipids, fundamental for the well-being of the dermis. Instead, egg white is rich in water and mineral salts, and therefore moisturizing.
5. Less salt and more water for hydration
Wrinkles and signs of age are most evident when the skin loses elasticity, collagen production decreases, and dehydration increases. The first thing to do is to drink more water while decreasing the amount of salt every day (replacing it, for example, with aromatic herbs and spices).
6. Dried fruit for a toned skin
Walnuts and almonds increase the elasticity of the skin, thanks to the presence of vitamin E, one of the most powerful natural antioxidants. Dried fruit is perfect to contrast the loss of tone and expression lines. Consumed every day with moderation, it can be eaten for breakfast together with yogurt, smoothies, or to garnish salads.
In addition, oil is obtained from almonds that have many beneficial effects on the skin. Sweet almond oil moisturizes, removes make-up, and prevents certain skin blemishes such as stretch marks.
