Skin Diet - Healthy Skin Care Tips, Vitamins for skincare


A good diet consisting of fresh, untreated foods is essential for the health of your entire body, not just your skin. The best thing you can do for the health and look of your skin is to eat healthy and drink plenty of water. Eat lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, plus essential fatty acids from foods like flax seed oil. If you want a healthy skin, it is important for you to take a healthy food diet which contains adequate amounts of vitamins, minerals and proteins. Some people have even come out with extraordinary claims, suggesting, for example, that salads will dramatically change your appearance and to develop a perfect skin you must take vitamin and mineral supplements. All this to my mind is humbug.

Although there is no denying that you must take a varied and a balanced diet, it is equally important to remember, that the single most important factor in determining the beauty of your complexion is heredity and that your eating habits play only a very small pan in it. However, if your diet is grossly deficient in cenain elements, then the skin can develop problems. In people taking normal balanced diets this does not happen. But after severe illness, surgery and in people who are on crash diets, problems might occur. Lack of vitamin A shows blackheads and white heads. You might have the deficiencies from iron, iodine and vitamin B, which plays important role in producing beautiful skin. Vitamin B1 helps in blood circulation and vitamin B2 deficiency can cause brown pigmentation and liner spots on skin. So these vitamin should be taken for healthy skin.

Healthy and glowing skin is the first indication of your good health. Balance is the key word. No single diet is responsible for building up or maintaining the skin - so fad diets, which over-emphasize one food in preference to others can actually deprive you of essential nutrients and so may even harm your body and skin. Moreover, there are a lot of misconceptions about the effect of certain foods on your skin. It is not true, for instance, that eating chocolates, sweets or rich cakes will give you spots. Neither is it true that eating greasy, fried foods will give you a greasy skin or make your hair greasy. Nor can it be guaranteed, that if you fill yourself up with cucumbers, grapes, carrot juice or lettuce you will acquire a beautiful, flawless complexion.

Vitamin A is very important for the health of your skin and eyes. The richest sourcesof this vitamin are cod-liver oil, liver, carrots, spinach, milk, and egg-yolk. If the diet is lacking in this vitamin, the skin becomes excessively dry and develops pimples. Vision at night becomes defective. But remember, neither should you overdose yourself with Vitamin A, because this also can cause dryness and roughness of the skin, falling of the hair and soreness of lips. Foods of ten play an important role in causing, at least, two types of skin problems- hives and eczemas. Although, there are several types of eczemas which are not due to food allergies, 'atopic eczema' is frequently its resultant. Certain food stuffs, such as milk, eggs and preserved foods are most likely to cause allergies. Often a number of hours elapse before the reaction occurs so it is quite a problem to identify the culprit. Luckily, most people out-grow their food allergies and it is really not always necessary to look very carefully for the causative agent.

Skin problems happen to everyone. They are unavoidable. They erupt nearly everyone's face at some time and seriously affect more than half of all adolescents for some years of their lives. -Proper diet and nutrition are crucial for maintaining good health. Good nutrition is also reflected in a person's outward appearance, including that of the skin , hair and nails. In recent years, researchers have found growing evidence of the link between healthy eating and a variety of positive health outcomes. These include reduced risk of heart disease and cancer. In addition, good eating habits may help prevent worsening of skin conditions such as psoriasis . On the other hand, foods containing substances such as sugar, saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium and alcohol should be avoided or consumed in moderation. Sometimes supplements may be necessary to ensure that an individual gets the vitamins and minerals needed to stay healthy. Patients are urged to consult with their physician to ensure that their diet provides the proper nourishment required for good health.

A good diet consisting of fresh, untreated foods is essential for the health of your entire body, not just your skin. A good intake of antioxidants is vital for the health of your skin. Eating plenty of antioxidant-rich foods every day is therefore a key dietary factor, as, of course, are several others, some of which have been covered in other chapters, such as keeping your digestive tract and liver in good working order and the importance of certain fats.
