We all love make up and I rarely see women these days who don’t wear some makeup on a daily basis, but excessive layers of make up might make you look pretty for the time being but it is damaging your skin in the long term. Millions of women spend a lot of money on acne creams, face packs and other cosmetics to treat their skin but beauty is truly skin deep in this case because if your skin is not internally healthy it will never show on the surface. To treat your skin internally it’s very important to eat the right things and include certain food items in your diet.
Water – We all are aware of the fact that drinking plenty of water helps to keep your skin hydrated.. Drinking at least 10 glasses of tap water throughout the day not only hydrates the skin but also removes toxins from your body thus keeping you internally healthy.
Fish – The fatty acids that most fish contains is the key element for a healthy skin. Fish has Omega-3s, which keeps cell membranes of our skin healthy by keeping out harmful substances and allowing nutrients to enter cells. Omega-3s also reduces our body’s production of inflammatory agents, which usually causes acne and other skin problems.
Green Tea – Green Tea doesn’t just help burn fat but is also rich in antioxidants which help reduce cell inflammation (acne) and also protects cell membranes which might get blocked due to excessive use of makeup. It also reduces sunburn damage, which helps reduce the risks of getting skin cancer.
Vegetables – Most vegetables contain essential elements like vitamin A, C and K and all of these are extremely good for your skin. So vegetables like Carrots, Cucumber, Cabbage, Tomatoes and Spinach can show excellent results if consumed regularly. Most vegetables also contain a large proportion of water in them, which act as anti toxins and keeps the skin clear and healthy.
