Skin & Diet
With no doubt, natural ingredients which when applied topically provide us with great benefits to the skin and although this is very important to keep your skin healthy and radiant, we must take in consideration what we ingest and how how it impact our skin.
Hydrated skin looks fuller, brighter and makes wrinkles less noticeable. Our in-house natural skin care products provides you with many options offering moisture for smooth and hydrate skin. Apart from the usage of premium local and natural skin care, drinking enough water daily is essential to keeping your skin hydrated from the inside as well as consuming hydrate natural and raw food. Staying hydrated is one simple and easy way to optimize your skin care regime.
Topical application can help protect our skin as antioxidants. Many of our products contain natural sources of Vitamin C and E that help protect our skin against damage. But eating foods which are high in antioxidants can also benefit our skin! Colourful berries, beans, sweet potatoes, spinach, and other dark green vegetables are antioxidant rich and benefit not only your complexion but your health in general. Incorporating these foods into your daily meals will keep you feeling healthy, and improve your skin’s appearance.
Vitamin A, and the retinol form that is often incorporated into skin care products has anti-aging effects and also helps to clear the complexion in general. If it is known that Vitamin A has all these great benefits when applied topically, then why not incorporate it into your diet to optimize its effects? Foods such as carrots, oranges, eggs, and dark greens are rich in Vitamin A. As a bonus, incorporating Vitamin A in your diet will also help keep your bones, teeth, and immune system strong.
To keep your skin moisturized and to ensure the skin’s barrier is functioning it is important that you are consuming enough fat. Lipids are an essential component of the skins barrier, and although topical application of skin products helps protect it, your diet is also an important source of molecules which make up this barrier. Olive oil, avocado, nuts, and fish are great sources omega fatty acids which help keep your skin healthy. Without adequate fat in our diet, our skin will become dry and blemishes are also more likely to develop.
The list does not end here. There are many ways in which our diet impacts the appearance of our skin. In order to feel and look beautiful we must be mindful of the foods we eat on a regular basis.
