TELL ME HOW YOU EAT AND I WILL TELL YOU HOW YOUR SKIN HAS
Aristotle already said it in Ancient Greece “let food be your best medicine and let your best medicine be your food.”
The skin is the largest organ in our body and directly reflects our state of health . In addition to external care , such as cleaning, hydration, sun protection... diet plays a crucial role in maintaining healthy skin .
WATER AND VITAMINS, ESSENTIAL FOR BEAUTIFUL AND HEALTHY SKIN
Water is essential for skin health. Staying well hydrated is essential to prevent dryness and the premature appearance of wrinkles .
Certain environmental factors such as stress , sun exposure , high temperatures , exercise or excessive sweating can make water consumption requirements higher .
It is not enough to just hydrate ourselves by drinking water or liquids, there are certain foods that will also contribute to hydration and ensure that our skin is well hydrated.
The foods that will help us with this will be mainly vegetables , as well as fruits . Its high water content is going to be key .
This group of foods will not only help us hydrate, as they are rich in antioxidants , such as vitamins and minerals , they will fight or keep free radicals in balance.
Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage skin cells and accelerate aging .
Antioxidants are key to neutralizing these free radicals.
What vitamins are going to be the ones that are going to mainly help us take care of our skin?
Vitamin E : protects and helps improve cellular tissue, effectively counteracts aging . It can be said that it is a powerful photoprotector .
The foods where we can find it are mainly in oils of vegetable origin , sunflower seeds , flax seeds , pumpkin seeds , sesame seeds and nuts such as almonds and walnuts, avocado .
The ALL IN ONE CREAM hydrates all skin types . Its secret, its high dosage of Bakuchiol or vegan retinol , an incredible active ingredient 60 times more effective than vitamin E against oxidative damage. Its moisturizing, anti-aging and tone-unifying properties join those of other no less incredible active ingredients, such as orchid stem cells from Japan that redefine and remodel the facial oval .
Vitamin A : we are referring to b-caronet , which is the precursor of vitamin A.
Helps skin pigmentation and prevents oxidative stress .
It is responsible for the yellowish, orange color of foods, mainly vegetables such as pumpkin , mandarin , tomato , apricots , carrots , and in foods of animal origin such as egg yolk and dairy products such as butter .
We can also find it in spinach , spirulina algae and sprouted alfalfa .
- Vitamin C : essential for skin health , as it promotes the synthesis of collagen , a protein that makes up skin tissue and gives it elasticity and improves the skin's barrier function .
We find this nutrient in most citrus fruits such as lemon, orange, tangerine, acerola, kiwi , pineapple , strawberries , pepper , tomato.
OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS FOR GLOWING SKIN
Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for skin health , as they help maintain the skin barrier and reduce inflammation . Fatty fish like salmon , walnuts , and chia seeds are excellent sources of omega-3s . Include these foods in your diet to help maintain smooth and radiant skin .
PROTEINS TO STRENGTHEN THE SKIN STRUCTURE
Proteins are essential building blocks for skin. Collagen and elastin , two key proteins, are responsible for maintaining skin firmness and elasticity .
Be sure to include lean protein sources in your diet, such as chicken , fish , legumes , and dairy products .
