More Healthy Skin Tips

Sometimes our skin has the problematic break-out, and often the face is the affected area. Particularly acute break-outs of the skin may require prompt medical attention.  However, before this extreme situation occurs, a change in eating habits may preclude such a need because what we eat has a huge effect on our skin.

Eat high-protein foods, vegetables and raw fruit. Protein is a great pimple fighter. Avoid eating chocolate and other foods or drinks made from cocoa since these may have a detrimental effect on skin condition and cause pimples.  Avoid fried and fatty foods.  Avoid starchy foods, cakes, biscuits and sweets. Choose whole-grain rye- or wheat-meal bread rather than white. The foods that are good for you benefit your skin and make you feel better in general.

When choosing a balanced diet that best suits you, be sure that you are getting the
essential vitamins and minerals necessary for good skin health:

  • Vitamin A is essential for healthy skin.  It maintains its elasticity, protects it from drying, becoming aged and wrinkled. If the body is lacking in vitamin A, the skin texture can become flaky, start to itch and pimples may appear. Vitamin A is found in food groups such as meat, milk, eggs, cheese, carrots, spinach and broccoli.
  • Biotin in the vitamin B complex group is a must to keep healthy, well-balanced skin.  Even though the body produces biotin, certain foods are efficacious for skin health. Vitamin B is found in such foods as   bananas, eggs, oatmeal and rice.
  • Vitamin C is great for maintaining skin tone and elasticity; it can help prevent skin sagging and discoloring with age.  Foods containing vitamin C include broccoli, oranges, strawberries and cabbage.
  • Vitamin E restores skin moisture and slows down the aging process via the skin cells. Vitamin E is found in foods such as green leafy vegetables, nuts and vegetable oil.

Try to drink eight glasses of water each day; this will improve your metabolism and
you will feel healthier. Drinking a glass of warm water on waking dilates the blood vessels enabling the blood to flow more freely around the body.

Healthy skin needs daily cleaning and moisturizing. Washing in warm water is recommended and moisturizing products that best suit your skin type ought to be chosen.

Avoid excessive amounts of direct sun exposure; always apply sun screen if heading outdoors. The backs of hands are often exposed more than the face and, since this skin is quite thin, treat this area with sun-proof cream. Sun spots are better avoided than treated once they appear. If you are on medication, ask your doctor whether there are any likely reactions to direct sun exposure. Some medications make the skin extremely sun sensitive, which may result in severe sun burn. For every skin condition there is always a treatment to improve it.
