How Does Food Affect Your Skin Part 2

Whether you’re a beauty fanatic, or you use a three-in-one body wash to cleanse your face in the shower, the truth is that, overall, your skin health does matter. Although many people deal with a variety of skin issues — and genetics has a lot to do that — one major way we can help to manage our own skin health is by considering how our diet affects our skin. 

Here are some foods which are good for the skin :

  • Water – Being hydrates makes us less wrinkled and plumper. When we fill our body with water, we fight off sugar from the sodas and juice we take. When your blood sugar levels elevate, sugars attach itself to proteins in collagen and generate compounds that leads to sagging and wrinkled skin.
  • Olive Oil – Studies show that a higher consumption of olive oil (2 teaspoons a day or more than 8.4 grams) has a 31% fewer signs of going than those who ate less than 3.8 grams or about 1 teaspoon. This is because about 75% of the olive oil fat is monounsaturated fatty acids, which plays a part in the youth boost.
  • Tomatoes – Tomatoes are good source of Vitamin C and have all of the major carotenoids, as well as lycopene. Because it has all of the major carotenoids, it is a great food for maintaining a healthy skin. But these tomatoes need fat to be absorbed. Be sure to pair it for instance with olive oil or cheese.
  • Dark Chocolate – This sweet treat helps reduce the roughness of the skin, hydrates it and provides sun protection. This is because of flavonoids, which are the anti-oxidants found in dark chocolate.
  • Green Tea – Those who consume a beverage that contains green tea polyphenols daily for 12 weeks had more elastic and smooth skin and had lesser sun damage. Green tea had catechins, and antioxidant with anti cancer and anti inflammatory properties.
  • Soy – A study shows that people who daily take 40mg of aglycone (isoflavone found in the soy), had lesser fine lines and enhanced skin elasticity within 12 weeks. This isoflavone can help stop collagen from breaking down, which this leads to lines and sagging.

        Eczema is gut related. Check for inflammatory foods in your diet.
