Do you have sensitive or dry skin? Are you worried about the wrinkles that started to appear in the eye area? There is no secret in the fact that besides the cosmetic routine that any woman respects, the beauty and youth of the skin can be maintained with food.
Here are the foods that help you considerably improve the appearance of your skin according to your skin type.
Olive oil moisturizes the skin and is very helpful for dry, desquamated skin, especially if it is consumed internally or externally. Olive oil reduces inflammation in cells and joints if consumed in a minimum of 2 teaspoons a day. Also, almonds are very rich in vitamin E (a powerful antioxidant) and protect skin damage caused by excessive UV exposure.
For wrinkled skin, the most indicated foods are those containing many antioxidants. Red apples for example contain anti-inflammatory antioxidants and help eliminate edema due to quercetin in their bark. This flavonoid (antioxidant) reduces the risk of allergies, heart disease and degenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s. Green tea contains catechins, which are antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
Consumption of 2 to 6 cups of green tea daily protects the skin from cancer and the effects of sunlight, because it neutralizes free radicals formed by exposure to the sun.
Fatty acids like Omega 3 are a necessity in the diet of people with sensitive skin. Flax seeds are rich in protein and fiber, are full of Omega 3 fat that helps to blush fine wrinkles and remove skin spots. Half a teaspoon of daily intake seeds for 6 weeks helps relieve irritation, redness and skin inflammation and maintains a better level of moisture. Consume them in yogurt, salads or morning cereals, because it also helps lower cholesterol.
In case of acne, beta-carotene foods feed and strengthen the skin, making it more resistant to the fight against eruptions. Bring in your diet vegetables and fruits that contain beta-carotene: carrot, pumpkin, spinach, salad, apricot, mango, peach, melon. Also important for skin are “good” fats, which help you get healthier and stronger skin: avocados, walnuts and flaxseeds.
For skin health it is very important to avoid excess spices such as pepper, cayenne, curry or excess alcohol.
Also, do not forget to drink more than 2 liters of water a day to remove toxins from the body and ensure proper functioning of the kidneys, liver and intestines.
A lazy digestive system is often correlated with the appearance of acne.
