- Eat Lots of Veggies
Make colorful veggies an essential part of your daily diet. They are rich in nutrients and antioxidants, which are excellent for skin and complexion. They also keep you healthy and the glow reflects on your skin. Spinach, kale, broccoli, tomatoes, carrots, onions, bell peppers, sweet potatoes, yams, and squash are some great recommendations.
- Prefer Fish
In all meats, prefer fish. It is the healthiest form of meat. Fatty, fresh, and colorful fish such as salmon is the best choice. Salmon is rich in astaxanthin, which is known to impart a glow to the skin.
- Cod Liver Oil
The cod liver oil contains essential saturated fats. They are healthy are great for healthy skin. It is also rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and DHA, the essential unsaturated fatty acids. It is rich in Vitamin D and A. You can use them in the form of liquid and capsules both.
Workout and sweat! Apart from the essential benefits of exercise to overall health, it is good for the skin too. Sweating helps in flushing toxins out of the pores and skin. Saunas help you sweat and are beneficial for the skin too.
- Cut the Complex Carbs and the Sugars
Let’s make it more understandable. In simple words, it means no sweets, fruit juices, and no honey or sugar in your tea and coffee. Anything that contains pure fructose is literally garbage for the body. Fruit intake should also be limited. Carbs spike the insulin levels and cause inflammation, hence making the skin puffy. People actually notice an improvement in complexion when they cut their sugars and carbs.
- Avoid Fried Foods
Fried foods are a big No. Vegetable oils such as corn and canola oil should also be avoided. Replace them with coconut oil and olive oil.
- Avoid Oil-Based Beauty Products
No matter how high their claims are, avoid beauty products, which are mineral oil-based. This also includes creams, lotions, and makeup products. Also, don’t wear makeup every day. When you wear it, wear it light and let your skin breathe.
- Avoid Direct Sunlight
Sunlight is highly damaging and can make your skin age prematurely. Sun exposure is dangerous for skin whether it is summer or winter. The fact that the ozone layer is depleting makes sunlight even more damaging to the skin.
- Do Not Smoke
Does it need any explanation?
- Vitamin D
Most people are either severely lacking in Vitamin D production, especially in North America. On average, a person needs a minimum of 4000 IU a day if there is no summer sun. Consider taking a Vitamin D supplement.
- Stay Hydrated
Drink plenty of water and green tea. They are the best replacements for those unhealthy fruity and fizzy drinks.
- Adequate Amount of Sleep
Getting a good 8-hour beauty sleep is significant. If you work at night or you are an all-nighter by choice, make sure you hit the bed in the morning and catch up on your sleep. Also, try to sleep on your back. This will help you prevent wrinkles.
