Secret to Healthy Skin: Everything Diet
What you put on your skin matters less than what you put inside your body.
It goes without saying that a balanced diet that can provide you all the required nutritional values will certainly enhance your glow naturally. And trust me, this is going to be more promising than any skin regime you follow.
It is a preconceived notion that a healthy diet is difficult to follow and expensive, well let me tell you, it is not as expensive as the products you buy for your fancy “skincare routines”.
There are a few changes that you can introduce in your diet AND your lifestyle that would help you a lot in achieving that naturally-glowing-sunkissed-blushing-face. Let me list them down for you.
Chug in that Water
Nope, avoid that beer and have water instead. At least 12 glasses in a day, please. Your skin needs that more than the oh-so-expensive serums and hydrating masks.
Start your day with a large glass of water, when I say large, I mean Venti. Which reminds me that you need to avoid coffee as your first drink. Caffeine as your first drink is a big no-no for all the possible reasons.
A Bowl of Salad a Day can Keep Acne at Bay
It is all about how you make that salad interesting without adding the unhealthy pasta and dressing. Salads aren’t as boring as they sound.
Try this recipe and this shall change your opinion about salads:
Have diced cucumber, bell peppers, tomatoes, onion and lettuce in a bowl and add chia seeds, grounded flax seeds, pumpkin seeds with lemon juice as your dressing.
It doesn’t sound fancy but it is super delish and healthy.
Salad being mostly water and raw vegetables won’t make your skin oily or prone to acne and it shall hydrate your skin, so yay yay!
Make Green Tea your Best Friend
Green tea, consumed or applied, can do wonders to your skin and I don’t find a single reason why you would not include it in your diet. Sure, it might taste funny initially but you’ll get used to it.
You can even use the used tea bags. Just keep the frozen or cold tea bags on your eyes and bid goodbye to dark circles and puffiness. Your eyes will thank you for this.
Take those Multivitamins
Multivitamins are important. Either incorporate them in your diet or take supplements. Works both ways. Usually people find it difficult to incorporate vitamins and micronutrients in their diet so multivitamin pills and gummies help a lot.
Along with your multivitamins, include Delta-8 gummies for your mental health as your stress reflects through your face and can certainly affect your skin. I do not have to tell you how a stressed person looks and loses all their glow.
It is better to take care of your overall health and let it reflect through your skin. The more sound your body and mind is, the more glowing your skin shall be.
Consumption of dairy has been a controversial point since pretty long. Some say it is good for health, some say it is not. As someone who has been consuming dairy all their life, you should try avoiding dairy and see if this works for you. There is a probability that it will work in your favour and you would not regret cutting out on dairy but it is better to first try it out for some time and see the results.
These little additions and subtractions in your diet along with your skin care regime can do wonders for you and skin is not the only part that would witness betterment, there shall be an enhancement in the overall health.If you have come this far, I would recommend you to read my blog on skincare mistakes that you might be making and combining these two would double the results for you.
