Best foods for healthy skin.

Have you ever thought about how the food you eat can affect your skin? 

The best way to have healthy skin is to get proper nutrition. Your skin requires a proper supply of nutrients to look healthy and is very responsive to the kind of food you eat.

So, a balanced diet is very important for your skin to feel and look good. 

Here are some suggestions, made by nutritionists based on your skin type. ( oily, dry, combination, ageing)

Foods For Ageing skin

  • Protein: Low fat milk, milk products and meats like chicken, fish, egg whites should be consumed in small portions 3 times a day. As the skin is made of a protein fiber called collagen, fueling it with protein enhances it. This helps to strengthen the collagen fibers which keeps the skin healthy.
  •  Zinc rich foods: sesame seeds, pumpkin, beans, chickpeas, almonds, mushrooms help the skin to fight acne and maintain the collagen level. 
  • Omega rich foods: Avocado, olive oil, salmon, tuna, walnuts, flaxseeds help to maintain moisture and hydration in the skin as hydrated skin is less prone to wrinkles and fine lines. 

 Foods For Oily Skin

  • Cut down your sugar intake and avoid refined flour. 
  • Don’t consume dairy, switch to almond milk or soy milk instead.
  • Avoid unhealthy fats like fried food, packaged food and full-fat meat as it leads to inflammation on the skin.
  • Try switching to vegan and gluten-free meals. 
  • Matcha green tea is suitable and also recommended for oily skin

Foods for Dry Skin 

  • Include a lot of Vitamin E in your diet, like nuts, avocado, tomatoes, carrots, apples.
  • Add Omega 3 oils like olive oil, fish for supple and hydrated skin.
  • Make sure you drink enough water.
  • Include a lot of balanced smoothies in your diet for hydration and nutrition

Foods For combination skin

  • Avoid junk food.
  • Avoid spicy food.
  •  Add raw foods like sprouted beans, seeds, nuts, fruits, salads to your diet.
  •  Include anti-inflammatory foods, omega 3 rich foods, foods rich in vitamin C and E.

Remember ladies, real skin has texture, pores, and even an occasional blemish. The goal is healthy skin, not perfect skin. So eat a healthy diet for healthier skin.
