You may have heard the expression ‘you are what you eat’ and despite the fact that it may not be true, no doubt whatever you eat influences what you look like, enormously.
People usually ask what to eat for a healthy glow and healthy skin, so I decided to write this post for all of those who had this question in their mind. These are 5 ways to take care of your skin business 😉
Get Enough Sleep
When we rest, our skin gets more blood flow which adds to healing and that magnificent sparkle that we die for. Get at least 7-8 hours of sleep every night for your skin to repair and recover. Dark circles or bags under your eyes could imply that you require more rest.
Water isn’t just super cheap, yet it keeps your body hydrated, which is the most important thing ever! It flushes out dreadful poisons and toxins and also keeps you looking great. You should intend to drink no less than 8-10 glasses of water a day (a glass being 200 ml), and especially more than the required intake if it’s hot or you’re exercising. A simple method to check whether you’re drinking enough water is to check the color of your pee; if it’s dark in color, then you are most likely lacking water and need to drink more. On the off chance that you find water boring or too simple, you could add natural flavors or modify it by adding yummy fruits. Caffeinated drinks do count in your water intake but shouldn’t be more than 5-6 glasses per day as an excess can cause undesirable reactions like sleep deprivation and irritability.
Healthy Balanced Diet
- Eat an assortment of natural colors in your eating regimen. Have foods that are grown from the ground like fruits and vegetables, about 5-10 portions per day, and keep your plate as beautiful as could be expected under the circumstances. A colorful and varying eating routine will not just make it more interesting for you to eat, however it will also guarantee that you are eating an assortment of vitamins and minerals that will sustain your skin from inside and out, particularly vitamins like Vitamin C. So the next time you make a salad or serving mixed greens, don’t simply include leaves…add tomatoes, mushrooms, peppers, corn. On the off chance that it has a vibrant color and you like it, add it in!
- Vitamin A is a fundamental for healthy skin. It is found in low-fat dairy items like milk, yogurt and cheese. Also eggs, oily fish and potatoes are good sources of vitamin A.
- Try not to fear fat. Fats in your eating routine are basic for healthy and sustained skin, however make sure to pick the healthy ones like mono-unsaturated fats. The fats found in food such as oily fish, nuts, and seeds are fabulous for a healthy composition and they contain fundamental omega-3 and antioxidants such as Vitamin E. Antioxidants ensure against free radicals (contaminations) which can have a harming impact on the skin.
- Increase your Zinc intake. Zinc is a mineral that advances skin healing and repair. It is found in red meat and whole grains. Intend to have lean red meat about once a week as it is a decent source of iron and have whole grains instead of white carbs.
Ban Bad Lifestyle Habits
If you want beautiful skin, quit unhealthy habits like smoking, drinking and unhealthy eating. Smoking diminishes blood flow to the skin which causes wrinkles and a dull complexion. Another approach to ensure that your skin looks great as you age, is to secure it when you go outdoors with an SPF of no less than 15, along with 4 or 5 star UVA rating.
Good Skin Cleansing Routine
Something that I truly believe in is having a good skin-care routine. You should remove all of your makeup from your face before sleeping at night and apply a nice moisturizer or serum. I personally prefer my skincare routine in the following order: cleansing, exfoliating, toning and lastly moisturizing. I highly recommend finding a cleanser, toner and cream that you like and repeating these steps every night.
These are my tips and techniques for having amazing skin, so do try these out and let me know how they worked out for you guys! xoxo
