SUGAR LOVERS BEWARE! The Good Skin Diet – 4 STEPS TO GLOWING SKIN
Have you ever noticed women who have beautiful, flawless skin?
The kind of skin that looks so good that it almost looks painted on? Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all have skin like that? Well it is, in fact, possible, and surprisingly easy to do!
Incorporating The Good Skin Diet can not only restore your skin, but it can give you a new and refreshing, natural glow.
THE GOOD SKIN DIET
Follow these 4 steps and your skin will be forever grateful…
1. Flavonoids are plant chemicals found in most fruits and veggies. They are known for giving plants their vibrant color and are the largest group of all plant chemicals. Celery, kale, tomatoes and strawberries are loaded with flavonoids. Eating foods with flavonoids helps boosts the immune system and protects the skin with natural anti-inflammatory agents.
2. Protein is great food for the brain and helps build muscle tissue. It’s also responsible for skin’s elasticity in collagen and the overall structure of the skin. Eat plenty of fish, chicken and lean meats to help make the skin thicker, thus smoothing out any potential wrinkles.
3. Antioxidants prevent free radicals (nasty germs and harmful foreign bodies) from entering and attacking the body. They also help keep the skin firm and help repair sun damage. Blueberries, green tea and cilantro are great sources of antioxidants. Have a daily cup of green tea.
4. Omega 3’s have a ton of skin benefits. Just saying the words makes your skin feel better (well not really but it should). They hydrate the skin, provide nourishment, help work against wrinkles and give the skin complexion a smooth look. Add walnuts, salmon, flax and eggs to your food regimen to reap the many rewards to your skin from Omega 3’s.
Sample Meals for Healthier Skin…
Breakfast: Stay away from sweet cereals and pancakes drenched in syrup. Sugar causes inflammation. A great breakfast for better skin is a cup of probiotic-rich yogurt with fresh fruit. Probiotics boost skin health. You can throw it in the blender for a delicious smoothie.
Lunch: To get as many nutrients as possible, focus on taking in colorful produce at lunch by eating a salad topped with nuts, avocado and salmon. Start with a bed of dark leafy greens, and top it with nuts like almonds and cashews which offer healthy fats, protein and zinc, and promotes skin integrity and heals acne. Salmon contains omega-3 fatty acids, which also helps support healthy cells in the skin, while avocado is a rich source of vitamins E and C, which reduce skin inflammation.
Dinner: Swap processed white carbohydrates like potatoes and bread for whole grains like brown rice which contains vitamin b. Vitamin B helps decrease breakouts by regulating hormone levels. Add a colorful vegetable and lean protein to round out a meal that will help give your skin a healthy glow.
Also avoid drinking sugary drinks throughout the day and replace them with plenty of water for clearer, more beautiful skin.
Good nutrition not only affects your weight and how you feel, but it plays a huge role in the health and look of your skin!
