Take care of your body's largest organ through diet and nutrition!
The skin is THE largest organ of the body, and it's what people see first! Although a huge global skincare market exists to help people achieve younger-looking, radiant skin, did you know that your first line of defense in taking care of your skin starts with a healthy, balanced diet?
That's right! The food we eat directly impacts our skin beneficially or adversely, depending on what makes up our diet.
What To Eat / What Not To Eat
1. Avoid refined, processed and added sugar-rich foods
Refined carbohydrates and sugars — including white-flour items (like bread, cake, pasta) and white rice, tend to rapidly increase blood sugar levels. This spike in blood sugar levels increases inflammation and causes the skin to produce more oil and plug the pores, which can lead to skin breakouts.
- Reduce consumption of refined carbohydrates: sugar, bread, pasta, white rice.
- Avoid greasy fried foods and high dairy consumption.
2. Eat enough Protein and Vitamin C
Protein and Vitamin C are the building blocks of collagen, a structural protein found in connective tissue, skin, tendon, bone, and cartilage. As you age, your collagen production naturally declines. Additionally, collagen becomes fragmented and more loosely distributed. These changes lead to the signs of aging, such as wrinkles and dry, sagging skin.
- Make protein sources half your plate: lean meat, beans, eggs.
- Eat fruits and vegetables for Vitamin C: citrus fruits, green leafy vegetables, bell peppers, strawberries, tomatoes.
3. Eat plenty of Omega-3 fatty acids
Omega-3 fatty acids help regulate your skin's oil production, reduce inflammation, and reduce premature aging.
- Animal sources include fatty fish like salmon and mackerel.
- Plant sources include hemp and chia seeds.
