To get the skin that I wanted, I make sure that I live a healthy lifestyle. I follow those advice that says I have to sleep 8 hours a day or more, drink plenty of water, stay away from smoke (especially those coming from cigars and vehicle), exercise daily and eating those skin friendly and healthful foods.
For me, eating healthful and skin friendly foods, veggies and fruits is not a problem. They are always a big part of my daily eating habit and diet. Below are some of my favorite foods that you can consume anytime you want for a healthy and glowing skin.
Either as a salad, side dish or even as an appetizer, broccoli for me is one of the yummiest veggie. Broccoli contains essential nutrients, minerals and anti-oxidants that helps detoxify the body and repair damage or broken skin cells.
Aside from being a mini-hunger buster and effective appetizer, walnuts are skin friendly as well. Because of the high amount or level of Omega-3 fatty acids that it contains, walnuts indeed helps prevent dry and itchy skin and most of all, fight and prevent cancer cell growth. Munching few pieces of walnuts everyday can do wonders for your skin.
Mango, Pineapple And Papaya
Reading the above 3, what do you think they have in common? Yes it’s Vitamin C! Vitamin C along with the anti-oxidants that mango, pineapple and papaya give to your body enhances the collagen production of the body that prevents free-radical damage. Aside from being the best skin enhancer, they also strengthen immune system.
Sweet potatoes (or simply KAMOTE for us Filipinos) are not only diet friendly; they are skin’s best friend too. Sweet potatoes contain high concentration of beta carotene that prevents severe skin damage due to heat and even sun exposure. Just don’t consume too much of it because it might bring extra “air/gas” at your tummy :).
Whenever I eat heavily or may I say, more than the amount I use to eat, I make sure that I end up sipping my favorite tea. Tea, being a product of herbs and plants contains healthy substances that prevent major occurrence of acne and other skin deficiency.
With the above foods, I am pretty sure that getting a healthful and good looking skin won’t be that hard anymore for you. Just remember to mix it up with a healthy lifestyle, proper diet and regular exercise.
