Does what I eat affect the health of my skin?
« on: August 15, 2019, 09:09:11 pm »

Skin is the largest organ of the body. And being so outwardly visible, skin is usually an accurate reflection of what goes on inside. Yes, the types and amounts of food you eat, ultimately show on your face. For good skin tone and texture, it is important to follow a balanced diet. Here are some good nutrition practices that can help you maintain or improve your skin’s health.

Limit fat intake, especially saturated fats. This heart health habit helps keep the blood pumping efficiently to the skin where essential nutrients are delivered.

Eat up to ten nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables per day to provide non-fat, low calorie energy, plus essential vitamins, including the wrinkle fighting antioxidants vitamins C and E. Add fiber through whole-grain foods, starches, fruits, and vegetables to regulate the digestive system for efficient distribution of nutrients to your skin and all other organs. Avoid excessive salt to ward off hypertension and the resulting stress on the heart and circulatory system which, in turn, can diminish the blood supply to the skin. Drink the equivalent of eight glasses of water daily (juices, milk, fruit, and vegetables supply much of this amount) to cleanse away toxins, and maximize the efficiency of body functions, including skin hydration. Moderate the intake of alcohol, coffee, tea and cola to prevent an unnecessary loss of water caused by the diuretic effect of theses fluids. Adequate hydration helps prevent skin dryness, flaking and scaling.
