Skin

What can I tell you about your skin that you haven't already heard? 
What can you learn about your skin?
It's the biggest organ in your body. 
To have beautiful skin, you can follow the recommended regimen below:

  • drink 8 to 10 glasses of water a day to hydrate your skin
  • have a balanced diet that includes antioxidants (vitamins A, C, E and selenium) to increase immunity and healing
  • take a multivitamin to supply skin with essential vitamins and minerals
  • limit sugars in your diet to decrease inflammation
  • eat a moderate amount of lean protein to repair and heal skin tissues
  • eat foods that contain plenty of fatty acids for proper lubrication of cells 
Recommended foods for optimal skin health are as follows:
broccoli, spinach, kale, halibut, cod, red peppers, citrus fruits, strawberries, cantaloupe, tomatoes, almonds, asparagus, avocados, olives, sunflower seeds, nuts, garlic, poultry, chickpeas, pinto beans, salmon, mackerel, oats, flaxseeds
Also, important to note is your skin's ability to absorb chemicals from beauty products that you may use, some beneficial and others that are not. Read the labels and be a selective consumer. Become educated on your environment.
Hope you have a beautiful week!
