I know this is a little off topic with regards to skincare, but with the…
Despite all sorts of dermatologic face creams that people use to look beautiful and young, healthy food along with sports and healthy sleep takes the leading position in this “quest”. So the guarantee of the beautiful skin are:
Active components: omega-3, polyunsaturated fatty acids, zinc
Effect: smooth and clean skin
The importance of seafood for health can’t be overestimated. Also it influences the condition of the skin, especially when we talk about oysters and “fatty” sorts of fish like salmon.
Specific fatty acids that are contained in fish decrease the dryness and prevent inflammations. Moreover, this element affects the circulatory system improving the flow of blood. The better the flow of blood is – the better skin looks. The zinc that is contained in fish prevents the inflammation of the sebaceous glands and forming of pimples and acne.
Active components: Vitamin C
Effect: smooth and elastic skin
Vitamin C is well-known in medical world, it can be found as a component of various creams, in particular those that are used for face. This vitamin stimulates the production of collagen, which is the base protein for connective tissue. When the synthesis of this protein is slowed down (which is caused by the aging), the skin becomes “sluggish”. That is why frequent consumption of oranges, grapefruits (as well as tomatoes), in mild portions, provides the elasticity of skin and slows down the appearance of wrinkles. In addition, vitamin C is a great antioxydant.
3. Red and green vegetables
Active components: Vitamin A, beta-carotene
Effect: healthy and smooth skin
The skin is the largest organ, which, as well as the other “components” of our body, needs vitamins that are contained in different kinds of vegetables. The most important for skin are green and red (also orange) vegetables: for example, spinach and carrot.
Red and orange vegetables contain a lot of beta-carotene, which is and essential source of vitamin A (good antioxidant as well). The same vitamin contain also green leafy vegetables. These productshelp the skin create more new cells and get rid of old ones, thereby prolonging the youth.
Active components: Vitamin E
Effect: young and soft skin
Nuts are somehow like a treasure chest full of useful elements. Mainly it is vitamin E, which is contained in almonds. This vitamin has great ability to fight the process of aging of the skin. Also itprotects the skin from the influence of the ultraviolet rays, keeps the perfect balance of the moisture, and finally – makes the skin younger and softer.
Almonds, pistachios and walnuts have a considerable deposit of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids.
Active components: Rutin and vitamin B
Effect: clean and moistured skin
Whole grains contain a lot of Rutin which is known for it’s antioxidant abilities. This element also prevents inflammations and appearance of other skin diseases. And this is not all, because when we talk about whole grains the list of the abilities will continue almost forever. Still the idea remains the same – the proper consumption of the whole grain products prolongs the youth of the skin and influences human body in general. The same can be mentioned about the other “participants” of the list.
So as you can see the products we consume everyday really contain a lot of elements that have a positive effect on our body. If you eat properly, your skin will look young, and you will feel yourself young. Still, don’t overdo it, a lot of products in the list are allergens
