Have you heard the saying “you are what you eat”? The same could be said for our skin and its’ correlation with our everyday diet. Beautiful skin comes from within, the nourishment of good clean foods and the skincare products you choose to include in your life. A ‘good skin’ diet should prioritise foods that are high in antioxidants, vitamins, and healthy fats. Look for foods that have that vibrant colour, especially fresh fruit and vegetables. Nutritionists and health experts recommend eating at least 5 servings of fruit and veg per day! Keep processed, fried food and sugars to a minimum as these can cause break outs and dehydration of the skin. Another tip is to steer clear of dried fruits as the drying process reduces the amount of vitamins they can retain.
Try to keep your diet and fitness consistent so that your weight doesn’t fluctuate, fluctuation of weight can actually effect the skin and create sagging, stretch marks and wrinkles. Your water intake also plays part in good skin, be sure to drink at least 2 litres a day, hit that hydration station baby! Work on your complexion from the inside out, and of course invest in skincare that is active, has essential ingredients and will get you noticeable results (Cosmology Skincare duh).
