If you’ve tried every other breakthrough skincare product that promises youthful glow day after day, throughout every season and have failed to get the results you’ve been hoping for, perhaps it’s time you took a routine that’s more than skin deep.
Make no mistake about it: beautiful skin starts from deep within, so take a well-balanced diet. Start by keeping skin well-nourished by hydrating with water throughout the day.
Tickle your taste buds with two cups of green tea daily. Green tea contains high levels of polyphenols, powerful antioxidants that help the body, including skin cells, fight cell damage that cause skin to wrinkle and age, but also lead up to chronic, lifelong diseases like cancers. Green tea also contains an antioxidant known as Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG) to which many of this drink’s medicinal properties are alluded to. Boost your antioxidant levels further by incorporating Vitamin C rich foods like berries and other citrus fruits, and tomatoes in your everyday meals.
Improve skin health further by loading up with foods for healthy skin that are rich in Vitamins A, E, and B. Foods rich in Vitamin A like carrots, sweet potatoes, eggs, and milk help skin lock in moisture, and keeps skin wrinkle- and acne-free. Vitamin E rich foods including nuts and green, leafy vegetables make skin smooth and supple to touch. Vitamin B foods, particularly those high in biotin, like whole grains and bananas, provide the body with building blocks by which to repair damaged skin cells.
Make sure to benefit from the Omega 3 fatty acids, the so-called “good fats”, found in nuts and fish. These fats keep skin cell membranes healthy, that translates to increased protection from skin damaged caused by extrinsic factors like sun damage.
